In her first video, Kari shared about her modeling experience which was in 2008. She moved to LA and signed with LA Models. Her very first modeling gig earned her $1,500 for just a couple of hours which was supposed to do a runway show. She modeled for Denim line called Ed Hardy.
Or, she thought she was. Instead, Kari and 11 other girls were going to be angels and demons with body paints and thongs. She became a demon and served them orders. She couldn’t quit because she would lose her agent, and couldn’t go through it because she was completely stuck.
Kari turned to alcohol as she felt exposed and insecure. In the middle of it, she had blacked out and one of the models contacted the last person to speak on her phone, which was Kari’s brother. Because of the high-profile nature of the party, her brother wasn’t allowed into the party. But, after begging, fighting, and arguing, one security guard escorted him to her and they got her out of there.

Kari also started a fundraiser with a $20,000 goal of which $3,275 was the collection to date.
She also collaborated with her husband to create a YouTube show called D Plus with the help of friends and family members. The goal as they stated was to entertain while also inspiring people to step outside of their comfort zone and get to know someone different than them. Sometimes the most powerful thing a person can do for someone just includes them. And, sometimes the most fulfilling thing a person can do is take action.
The videos are posted on her husband’s YouTube channel.
Kari And Dustin Tavella’s Relationship, Their Adopted Son
Kari and Dustin Tavella have been together since at least 2017. When he met his wife for the first time, Kari disclosed to her that he was a magician. So, whoever knows Kari, she cares for other people, so she remarked that her now-husband should use it to help people.

Sadly, the couple had to go through the heartbreaking moment, when Kari had a miscarriage at four months old. However, when the couple was helping out at a home for women in crisis, one woman offered if she would adopt her son Xander.

Hence, Kari and her husband became the parents of two adoptive children.
Financially, Kari and her husband struggled, to the point that he moved into his parents Pete and Patti Tavella’s basement. After winning the show, he became $1 million richer that would further support his dreams and his family’s needs.
