I watched it. Tragic. Just used by everyone really wasn't she? 🙁

Watched it lady night. What a sad life she had. She just wanted to make everyone happy. And yes, agree she was used by all around her apart from a few loyal friends.

The comments about her figure from the newspapers and media were shocking. She had such a beautiful voice.

I felt like shaking the mum when she wouldn't tell Karen she loved her in the therapy appointment. I'd read about that happening.

Her Mother Agnes was described as aggressive and only having eyes for Richard. The ex boyfriend British guy who said Agnes and Richard had told her lawyer to get rid of and make Karen go to the Caribbean in order to separate them. He seemed full of regrets

So controlling! And making her marry someone when she wanted to pull out. Richard did seem to be the golden child whereas Karen could never be good enough. So damaging to her. sad
Such a beautiful voice

And her Husband wasn't as rich as he made out to be. Soon after their marriage he waa harassing Karen to lend him $50,000!

Watched a bit of it but the awful acting of Richard made me switch over. I loved Karen and was overly fascinated by her anorexia. Such a shame it still makes me sad that she died so young and so unhappy.
