Looks like the black Bill Gates is just an old-ass Wesley Snipes. Ray Huger, the husband of The Real Housewives of Potomac star Karen Huger, owes millions in taxes.


That’s right, the slow-moving software exec, whom his wife has dubbed “the black Bill Gates” (feel free to vomit), reportedly “owes nearly $1.5 million in back-due federal taxes and his company owes more than $3 million, according to public records” viewed by the Washington Post.

This massive debt would make sense, considering that a major point of contention in the show was why the Hugers were selling their spacious mansion to move to a spacious rental. Several of the reality-show co-stars wondered whether old black Bill Gates, 70, was still balling like he was back when he was an executive for IBM.

According to the Post, the Hugers sold their “Potomac home in August for $1.685 million, far less than its listing price of $2.5 million and its county-assessment value of $2.37 million.”

The government has a $1.468 million lien against BBG and a $3.06 million lien against the company he founded in 1991 after leaving IBM, Paradigm Solutions, according to court records viewed by the Post.

“It’s a private matter; it’s being addressed,” Huger said in a interview with the Post on Wednesday.

If this matter isn’t handled soon, the Grande Dame of Potomac might lose more than her faux title.
