It’s been nearly 35 years since Karen Wolek (Judith Light) admitted to being a “common hooker” while taking the witness stand during Victoria Lord’s trial in 1979. Yet this moment is still brought up as one of the best and most memorable from the show’s history. Light would go on to win Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series in both 1980 AND 1981 for her portrayal. Take a look as the Llanview citizens (including Karen’s husband Larry!) find out the truth about Karen in this game-changing moment.
