Previously she refused to attend her niece, Kim’s nuptials with American rapper, Kanye West. She got invited to participate in the grand wedding in Paris but decided to skip the marriage after her concern about the Californian wildfires demolishing her home. Karen told the Daily online magazine that she has already been to Kim's previous two weddings and France was not a new place for her to travel.
But she had previously attended Khloe’s wedding with her then-husband, Lamar Odom back in 2009.
The Nurse on her 2013 interview for The Intouch Weekly magazine revealed some of the darkest secrets of the Kardashians. She described her sister, Kris as a “crazy and controlling” fame-seeker in the same breath.
During the same interview, she revealed that Kris and husband of 22 years, Bruce Jenner parted ways and Bruce had even sought lawyers.
Karen called out on Kardashian haters and labeled them as jealous of Kardashian, and without the reality stars they would be eating bonbons and sitting on our a***s. So they need to get a life and a job.
How Much Is Karen Houghton’s Net Worth?
The 59-year-old summons a prominent part of increasing net worth from her part-time job of a nurse.
However, her sister, Kris lavish spending sprees and party-loving lifestyle are worth a watch. Krish has garnered an enormous net worth of $90 million as a reality star and an entertainment manager since 2007. She escalates the striking part of her fame and fortune from her 2007 E! Cable Network reality series, Keeping Up With The Kardashian.

Husband & Boyfriend Involved In Criminal Charges!
Karen and her ex-husband, Mark Zettel ended their six years of matrimony in 2002. According to the 2013 reports of Daily Mail, she was forced to get a protection request against her former husband in San Diego County Superior Court in early 2009.
