Newly-minted reality television star Karen Huger, the self-styled Grande Dame of Bravo’s the Real Housewives Of Potomac,” is having some trouble selling her home in the tony suburb about 15 miles outside of Washington, D.C. Miz Huger and her information technology entrepreneur husband, Raymond Huger, whom she frequently refers to as “the Black Bill Gates,” a designation we have to assume is meant to suggest something about the heft of their bank accounts, purchased the two-acre spread in February 2003 for $1,554,000. Our research reveals the property first came up for sale almost two years ago, in May 2014, with an in hindsight utopian price of $2.5 million. The asking price fell to $2.2 million before it was taken off the market in late 2014 and re-listed the following March (2015) at the still lower figure of $1,999,500. Since then the price tag has been chopped at least three times and currently stands at $1.749 million.
