RHOP Star Karen Huger and Husband Ray Owe Millions in Back Taxes

Fans of RHOP have been wondering if Karen and Ray are having money problems.

Now a new report is claiming the couple is in some serious debt.

The Washington Post is reporting that Karen and Ray Huger, and Ray’s company owe millions of dollars in back taxes.

The Washington Post writes:

At least one thing really is grand about Karen Huger, the self-appointed grand dame of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac”: her family’s massive unpaid tax bill.

Her husband, software exec Ray Huger, whom she has called “the black Bill Gates,” owes nearly $1.5 million in back-due federal taxes and his company owes more than $3 million, according to public records.

A major plot point of the show, whose finale was last weekend, involved cast members questioning whether the couple’s finances were as gold-plated as they portrayed them. (So wait, some things on reality TV are actually real?) Fueling the on-screen speculation was the Hugers’ sale of their Potomac home in August for $1.685 million, far less than its listing price of $2.5 million and its county-assessment value of $2.37 million.

It seems the suspicious pals were right: Something’s amiss. The government has a $1.468 million lien against Ray Huger, 70, a former IBM executive who founded software and consulting company Paradigm Solutions in 1991, according to an April 26 filing in Fairfax County Circuit Court. Paradigm Solutions, where Huger is the president and chief executive, also has a $3.06 million lien against it, Montgomery County Circuit Court records show.

“It’s a private matter; it’s being addressed,” Huger said in a brief interview Wednesday.

  1. This explains so much. I really do hope they are able to make some smart choices and work everything out. But they have to stop trying to floss like they are wealthy.

  2. One thing you don’t do is play with the government. When they say you owe, you better pay or there will be hell to pay. I hope they get their financial problems under control.

  3. Sooooo this is why she wears that same louie bag no matter what she wears and drive that benz that someone who is married to the black Bill Gates wouldn’t be caught dead in. It also explains why she tried to say how she koves her out dated kitchen and home. She couldn’t afford a renovation. Soooo pretentious is she. Smdh I dont think the ladies would have cared if she didn’t brag so much. Did anybody see her husband face when she said if I dont like the house in Great Falls we can always build in Potomac. His facial expression said it all, it was clear that they were broke but the good husband played along. Lol
