Karen Huger is turning her pain into power. The Real Housewives of Potomac star is opening up about being date raped at the age of 19 and is hoping her story helps others.

In an interview with PageSix, Huger revealed she’s sharing her story on The Real Housewives of Potomac in order to help combat the alarming suicide rate among victims. “The fact that I survived is part of my reality and I’m hoping that message resonates with the viewers,” she stated. “I am put in a very wonderful position to show that when adversity comes your way it doesn’t stop you, it can propel you. It is my responsibility to be real. I have no shame and I carry no burden because of what happened.”

The 54 year-old is open to sharing many details from what she called “a typical date that went totally off the rails,” but she will not be revealing her attacker’s name. “I will never reveal his name, he has passed on,” she explained. “[But] I can say he was a public figure. If he were alive today it might be a different story,” she said. “I’d like to have it out with him. But I forgave him a long time ago, that is why I lead I life I do today, forgiveness is a part of it.”

Karen recently received the ambassador award from Promoting Awareness | Victim Empowerment (PAVE), a non-profit organization that works to prevent sexual violence through education. She look forward to spreading the message of empowerment to women across the globe. “I have had a full life now [and] I did it victoriously, that’s the message I want: there are choices we can make – I chose empowerment. It wasn’t easy but I choose to be among the empowered.”

Wow! Kudos, Karen.

We know Mariah Carey changes managers like she changes clothes, but her next move could be her best move. According to Page Six Carey is in talks with Jay Z’s Roc Nation to manage her career.

Roc Nation manages Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole and DJ Khaled to name a few.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
