Karen first appeared in Genoa City in April 2007 to aid Nikki Newman in her race against Jack Abbott for the senate seat.
Karen soon wound up working at Newman Enterprises, and began dating Neil Winters. They have had a rocky relationship at times, but now live together.
Karen recently told Neil that her mother passed away when she was twelve years old, and told Victoria that her mother died of a disease that Karen may carry the gene for - this is why she doesn't want to have children!
Karen and Neil married, but it was short-lived as he had an affair with Tyra that caused Karen to leave him and file for divorce!
