Bravotv.com: How is Rayvin doing in college? Were you able to see her every month? Any kissing you know of?
Karen Huger: Rayvin is doing great in college. While it was an adjustment for me she handled it like a pro and lovingly made sure I did NOT make my monthly visits as I had planned. I sent away my baby and got a young woman back in return. Our mother/daughter bond is stronger than ever. I’m very proud of her.

KH: Ashley shared with as all, her desire to have her own child; she very much wants to be a mom. I wish that for her as well. I feel that once she holds her own child in her arms she will better understand my boundaries/perspectives concerning parenting and my desire to protect my child.
Bravotv.com: What was your relationship with Ashley going into the Reunion? Did you feel your beef was squashed after the luncheon?
