Karen represented California at the Miss Teenage America pageant, and won the Talent Award, and was eventually discovered acting by Ed Sullivan.

Valentine started her career on television in 1966, appearing in “The Dream Girl of 1967” as The Resident Dream Girl, and held the role for a year opposite hosts Dick Stewart and Wink Martindale. She also started appearing in the show “The Dating Game”. In 1969, she got her breakthrough in the series “Room 222”, which got her two Emmy nominations, winning one as Outstanding Actress in a Supporting Role. Her net worth started to increase significantly along with her popularity.

Karen then appeared in the film “Gidget Grows Up” in which she played the title character, and also had the title role in “Muggable Mary, Street Cop” which got a lot of critical acclaim. In 1975, she got her own television series – “Karen” – a rather brief sitcom series.

More movie opportunities appeared for Karen, and it helped in building her net worth further. Some of her projects from the 1970s to the 1980s include “The Daughters of Joshua Cabe”, “The Girl Who Came Gift-Wrapped”, “Murder at the World Series” and “Skeezer”. While doing these projects, she was also a semi-regular in “Hollywood Squares”, and also had guest roles in several popular series, including “Starsky and Hutch”, “Cybill”, and “Murder, She Wrote”. She also appeared in multiple episodes of “Love American Style” and “The Love Boat”. In 1985, she had a starring role in an episode of the 1985 revival of “The Twilight Zone”.

While Karen had many television projects, she also had several feature films. Some of these include “Hot and Cold Feet”, “The North Avenue Regulars”, and “The Power Within”. Since then, she has continued to work on television, and then ventured on to stage projects later in her career. Her lastest projects include the television movie “Wedding Daze” in which she co-starred with John Larroquette, and she has also starred in the productions of “Romantic Comedy”, “Steel Magnolias”, and “Breaking Legs”, so her net worth remains at least consistent.

For her personal life, it is known that Valentine married Carl MacLaughlin in 1969, but their marriage only lasted until 1973. Since 1977, she has been married to musician Gary Verna.
