Karen doesn’t usually talk about the years she spent at high school, but it is known that it wasn’t much of a special period for her – she had lots of friends thanks to her beauty but there were also many people who did not like her personality. She drew the attention of many boys studying at the same high school, but it is not known whether or not she dated any of them – she is rumored to have been going out with one of the most popular boys in school for about two months.
After she matriculated, she decided not to enroll at college, but rather focused on her modelling career, and her figure by going to the gym.
Career of a model
Karen’ modelling career was launched in 2008 when she competed in the Miss Texas USA pageant – next year in 2009, she competed in the Miss San Antonio American Beauty pageant and was the first runner up. She then went on to become the Conexion’s Hottest Latina, which got her numerous photoshoot offers with famous photographers, and she was also featured on her first cover page.
Karen has since worked with some of the most popular beer and other alcohol brands in the US, while she is also known in the boxing industry as a ring card girl.
Besides being a model, Karen has also had a chance to test her acting skills which were praised after her first role – she prefers to appear in comedy movies, as the genre suits her the most, while she can also be the girl next door, she can play the protagonist, or can simply be a girl you see sitting in a bar for just a couple of seconds.
She also featured in the “On The Floor” music video by IceJJFish, so she is now experienced in the fields of print, commercial, TV, and promotional work, while she has made a name for herself in the modelling industry and is now a sought-after model.
Her role model
Karen’s role model is Raquel Welch, a popular American actress, model, and a singer who was a sex symbol of the 1960s, with her posters being best-sellers. She did bikini shoots which girls did not do back then, and helped portray a strong female character.
Karen loves Raquel Welch because they are both petite and are around the same height – the two both struggled to become models, which Karen sees as a connection between them.
Love life and relationships
She is rumored to have been going out with the photographer who she worked with, and the same person is rumored to be the father of her child – Karen has a baby boy who is now more than six months old. She hasn’t talked about the boy’s father, which is why there are rumors circulating the internet as people are trying to guess who that might be. While some of her fans think that she is currently seeing someone, and might even be married and is simply refusing to show her man online, others believe that the baby was unplanned with a man she doesn’t love, and she’s therefore decided to raise the baby by herself.
A few people even claim that the popular model might have wanted a child but not a man, which is why she managed to find a way to become pregnant without having to stay in a relationship with the man, and without him having to be around.
Lashing out at the popular NFL player
Le’Veon Bell, the popular NHL Pittsburgh Steelers running back sent Karen a DM reading “Hello gorgeous” after which Karen became somewhat mad, because he already has a girlfriend. She lashed out at him because of the message, and accused him of flirting with other girls while he is dating the popular porn star Mia Khalifa.
Hobbies and other interests
Karen is a very active person as she loves being on the move, and doesn’t enjoy doing nothing. She is always looking for things to get her adrenaline up – it’s known that some of her favorite things to do are cliff diving and skydiving, while she also likes zip lining. She loves to travel, which is the main reason why she enjoys being a model, as it makes it possible for her to travel all around the US mostly free of charge. She is also a lover of animals. She enjoys listening to rock music, especially old classic rock, and has a special talent of imitating voices of popular musicians such as Pat Benetar, Dennis Laughlin, Shakira, and Britney Spears – this also makes her a good singer.
Real or fake?
Karen is one of those models who like things to be completely natural, so she doesn’t have a single piercing or tattoo on her body. She uses make-up only when she has to because of a shooting, but will take it off and go without is as soon as she is no longer in front of a camera.
