    She sat behind me in High School and what a great time we had. She was always one of my favorite people, still is. I was a senior and she a Junior. We did a lot of laughing as I remember. I still have the Teen Magazine where she was on the cover. Sweet young lady for sure.

    My mother thought the theme song sounded like someone snoring.

    I was in Mr Debelos’ drama class with Karen in high school. She was very serious about school and in fact was voted most likely to succeed. I thought she was awfully cute but I was too shy to talk to her. I am glad she made the big time. Nikali Boldrin.

    Karen is a beautiful woman. I just had the pleasure of watching her tonight on a rerun of Laugh-In. She was great and it was very obvious that she is very talented.

  7. I worked on a made for TV Movie with her in 1976 says:

    I thought she was so cute and pretty so I made myself ask her out for dinner. She accepted. Oh, I was on my white horse when I asked her. She was in the dressing trailer. It was just a fun thing at my parents’ restaurant, we were craft services. She was just 15 years older than me..;-) I think about her every once in awhile and remember how sweet and bubbly she was.

    I was flipping through the TV channels and came across Room 222 starring Karen Valentine a couple of weeks ago . She may remember a skinny looking , long hair New York cabbie asking her for her autograph while she was walking on Central Park West sometime in the early 70″s . I was standing by my yellow Checker cab by the Plaza Hotel waiting for a fare when I saw her walk by. I called out to her ” Hey you from Room 222 ” since I was too excited to remember her name . Anyway , she walked over to me with a big smile and gave me her autograph . That’s all I can remember since that happened about 45 yrs ago . I will never forget it .

  15. She Was Always A Sweetheart says:

    Karen Valentine was Miss Napa/Sonoma in the Miss Ametica California Pageant in June 1965! I know this for sure since I competed with her representing
    my city Downey as Miss Downey, Marilyn Granger.
    Miss Los Angeles County , Sandra Lynne
    Becker won the titled of Miss California. Karen Valentine did not place in the top five! She was noticed for talent as I remember for a comedy dance
    and song performance that was very good!

    I sure would like to see Room 222 again

  21. Ms. Valentine on Rm. 222 was my first crush at 9 y says:

    @Fresco Johnwaban. Thought these comments sections was where FANS could say something nice about actors they like, Not a site for ASSHOLES to spout unnecessary putdowns.

  22. Fresco Johnwaban says:

    She made me puke!

  23. I'm probably Miss Valentine's all time biggest fan says:

    Karen just turned 69 on 5/25/16. The last time we met was outside of Baltimore about 4 years when she spent the weekend (w Michael Constantine) at an autograph convention. Her husband Gary Verna, Patty Duke, and Davy Jones (about a month before he passed) were also there. It was beyond a total privilage to sit w Karen for a couple of hours and catch up. She’s as lovely as you’d think she’d be. I’ve adored her since I was 9 years old, which is 46 years ago! We first met when she debuted on Brosdway in “Romantic Comedy” in 1980(?). Here’s hoping she’ll get more acting gigs real soon. -TRET Tierney, NYC

  25. Bradleigh H Horton says:

    You need to check your facts about Room 222 carefully. The show last from 1969 to 1974. Karen Valentine hosted a pageant show in 1966.

  26. Jim says:

    I have been madly in love with this woman since I first saw Room 222, (why isn’t that available online???).
    Karen if you are single, please call me. I would love to take you to dinner or anywhere you would like to go.
