Karen welcomed her birthday with open arms as she expressed her gratitude in a post on Instagram Thursday. "Woke up this morning feeling #doublenickel 55th B-Day!!!" she wrote. "Blessed with family and friends that carry me and I them. Walking in my truth..."
Of course, Karen had to throw in a little bit of shade as well at some of the RHOP ladies she's been at odds with this season. "Thanks @gizellebryant @robyndixon10 and @ashleyboalchdarby for twisting truths so u seem more relevant, u crack me up," she ended the birthday post. "Personally I wouldn't advise it...BUT I like U ALL REGARDLESS! Life is too short #iseeyouclearly."
Karen is already getting some well wishes on her big day from the likes of Andy Cohen.
Karen opened up to The Daily Dish earlier this season about how she's experiencing a "rebirth" as she approaches her 55th birthday. "Everything I do is for my family, family first, and then I get to enjoy it through the process of, I guess, evolving in life. And it's good for my daughter and son to see that happening because I'm about to do the double nickel birthday," she shared. "To have a career really start at this point in my life again, they're very proud of me. And I'm glad that they're present and encouraging me to continue on and do that."
The RHOP shade continues in the upcoming new episode on Sunday at 8/7c. Check out a sneak peek, below.
