Karen Laine is a former defense attorney-turned businesswoman. She is also famous for starring alongside her daughter, Mina Starsiak, on HGTV’s Good Bones. Together they would scour for homes in Indianapolis that were in dire need of renovation.
They would then rebuild, refurbish and resell it to the world, forming the premise of the reality series. Since rarely talks about her off-screen, here’s Karen Laine’s biography, husband, and married life summarized under one roof.
Who is Karen Laine?
Initially, Karen Laine served to uphold the law as a defense attorney in Indianapolis. However, when her daughter, Mina Starsiak, sought out her counsel for a house she had just bought, there was no way she could turn her down.
Instead, she helped her renovate it and later resell it to a client who had eyes for it. Upon realization of how much profits she was missing out on, she quit her job in the law firm.
As it turns out, it wasn’t so bad after all. She would earn a decent living while spending quality time with her daughter.
Thus, Karen Laine and wife both started a business called Two Chicks and a Hammer in 2007. The company grew and attracted a lot of attention.
When the casting director reached out to her, she thought he was a con-man and ignored him. He then contacted her daughter, who gave him a chance. Who knew that the first season of Good Bones would garner up to 14 million views?
Is Karen Laine married to a husband?
Karen Laine is married to a guy named Roger. She seems happy and often uploads pictures of them on her Instagram handle. The first time we saw Roger in her life was on September 7th, 2017, when she uploaded a photo of them having a good time in New York.
Later on, they would visit Broadway in Chicago. The couple lives a happy life and often travel together to various vacationing destinations.
Karen Laine Net Worth.
Karen Laine had her breakthrough on HGTV’s Good Bones. However, did you know that her time in the reality television series isn’t her first rodeo behind a camera? As it turns out, the former lawyer had a few minor acting roles back in the day.
She appeared in movies like Darkman, Back to the Future, and Shocker, according to some wiki-online sources. As a result, Karen Laine’s net worth amassed to approximately $1 million from all her endeavors.
Now that she’s leaving Two Chics and a Hammer to her daughter Mina, we doubt her net worth will decrease by much. She did a pretty good job in management, whereas her daughter led the real-estate division.
Meet Karen Laine’s children and Failed Previous Marriages.
For those who weren’t aware, Roger isn’t Mina Starsiak’s dad. Her father was a guy called Casey and Karen’s first husband. Together, they had three children, including Mina.
Soon after the divorce, Karen Laine found love with a guy named Randy and married him. They, too, had a daughter named Cheryl.
However, like her first husband, Randy wasn’t the one, and they divorced. Her third shot at love didn’t turn out great either.
The former defense attorney and current TV star Karen Laine married a guy named Mick but divorced him not too long after. It is here on after that she met and married Roger. Also, the reasons for all her divorces remain private.
Information about Karen Laine’s children is scarce. Other than Mina and Cheryl, there are no details about her children’s names. However, we dug up an old photo of her entire family on Instagram, grandkids, and all.
