Sharon agreed and viewers noticed the name has a hidden tribute.

The second syllable 'Den' is a tribute to Sharon's eldest son Dennis Rickman Jr, who recently died in the boat accident, her late lover and Denny's dad Dennis Rickman, and her dad Den Watts.

In tonight's episode (Friday February 28 2020) Karen's son Keegan wants to try and cheer up Tiffany who's upset over sister Whitney being in prison, and goes to Karen for advice.
