On the October 18 episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, the couple had a deep conversation about how they’ve both changed as people over the course of their relationship, which resulted in Ray saying, “I was just wondering whether you realize that some of this fame and fortune has gone to your head.”
“Look, I am one big bubble of an ego, OK? Hello! So that shouldn’t even be a question,” the grande dame said in the video above when asked how she felt about Ray’s comment. “I think it was the success. I was hungry for the success. I wanted to make my parents proud, and that’s what really took me away from my marriage, the memory of them. How I was raised. What I was taught to do. If you’re going to do something, you’ve got to give it your best.”
Karen also spoke about how her career has affected the couple.
“It certainly had an impact on us, because I’m dedicated to my brand. I’m dedicated to building my business one stone at a time, and I was guilty of not striking a balance with that, and it did not help my marriage at all. I think it made Ray feel less important to me, which was not the case,” she said.
