Her husband Karon Riley looks so familiar…does anyone know where I may have seen him?

Jennie on

She looks familiar to me…was she on “The Steve Harvey Show”? If not, I think she looks just like an actress who was.

Best of luck to them!🙂

Sarah’s note: Yes, that’s her.

TC on

Terri and Karon are a beautiful couple. Karon is super hot! He plays in the Arena Football League with the Cleveland Gladiators.

Destiny on

They look so sweet together. Her new hubby is very cute.

Jay on

Yes, she was on the Steve Harvey Show…I’m so happy for them. Some people might think its a weird for them to get married in track suits but I find it to be nice. The actual marriage is what counts. I’ve heard a few folks say…too many people focus on the wedding and not the marriage. Congrats to both of them!!

Veroncia on

She is so pretty. She was on the Steve Harvey Show, and was pregnant on the show and in real life during the last season. She was also on the short-lived Just the Two of Us on the WB network.

Wow, he’s a cutie! I used to love her as “Lavita Alize Jenkins” on The Steve Harvey Show. lol Congrats to them and best wishes for a healthy baby.

How cute. Very good looking couple. I love when couples go for it, and skip spending SO much money on a traditional ceremony.

jasmine on

Aw, that’s so cute! Congratulations to them! Karon is very handsome and looks a bit like my dad.

LaReesa on

I did know that Ms. Vaughn was indeed expecting her second child,however it’s news to me that she had divorced and remarried. I’m glad that she and her new husband are happy. He does look very familiar, he’s handsome and she is beautiful. Congrats to the couple. I just watched a movie with her starring called “Dirty Laundry”. I loved her on The Steve Harvey Show and Soul Food (on Showtime) she had a guest starring role.

Britt on

Yes she is beautiful and he is quite handsome! It runs in his family and I would know because he is my 1st cousin! HE played for a few NFL teams and he played at Minnesota in college he now plays Arena football! THEY are BOTH wonderful people and I love them both a great deal!

m1 on

NETTA on

I ALWAYS LOVED TERRI AND HAD NO IDEA SHE MARRIED A PHOIIIINE GOODLOOKING FOOTBALL PLAYER, GO GIRL BECAUSE HE’S EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE AND THE BABY, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, GONNA BE BEYOND A CUTIEPIE AND BETTER LOOKING THAN DADDY, SINCE HE’S LOOKING JUST LIKE DADDY. CONGRATS BOTH OF YOU ALL!!!

NETTA on

AND IT MOST DEFINITELY DOESN’T MATTER WHAT A PERSON GETS MARRIED IN, WHEN LOVE IS IN PLAY, THAT’S ALL THAT COUNT AND BESIDES THAT’S SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT, THE HECK WITH THE EXPENSIVE WEDDING DRESS, HEELS, MAKE-UP AND THE OSTENTATIOUSNESS OF THE ENTIRE WEDDING CEREMONY ALL TOGETHER, THEY LOVE EACH OTHER THAT’S WHAT COUNT. AND TERRI, GIVE THAT MAN ONE MORE CHILD GIRL, THEN Y’ALL WILL BE EVEN MORE COMPLETE IN ADDITION TO YOUR PREVIOUS CHILD AND THE LIL CUTIEPIE NEWBORN! AND “ANDI” KARON DOES LOOK FAMILIAR, I’M THINKING TO MYSELF ALSO… O WAIT, YOU KNOW WHO HE REALLY LOOKS LIKE THOUGH, THAT GUY THAT PLAYED THE ROLE OF A SUPPOSING TO BE FAMOUS FORMER BASKETBALL STAR IN “THE WAYAN BROTHERS” AND TRIED TO CON SHAWN OUT OF HIS MONEY BUT HE WAS MUCH SKINNIER THOUGH.
