A: Why, yes, Ken, Katrina Owens is a Ravens fan, having moved to the Quad-Cities from Baltimore.
Owens left television for a couple of years to help take care of her mother. While home in Baltimore, she worked as a legislative representative for a Maryland state senator. She moved here with her "son," a four-legged rescued beagle named Okie, which she calls "the love of my life." Owens enjoys rock climbing and working with the Special Olympics, American Heart Association and animal rescue groups. As for the Ravens, she's a big fan of Michael Oher. "After watching the movie 'The Blind Side,' how could you not! I am more impressed with the man he is off the field rather than on the field." Here's something you may not have expected: Owens is a huge WWE fan. "I will be in the front row for Monday Night Raw when WWE comes to town in April," she said.
