Vanessa Williams Is Doing Her Memoirs
That's what I'm hearing, and it'll surely be a rewarding read.
After all, Vanessa Williams came to national attention as a lovely beauty queen whose crown was ripped off her pretty head when a lesbo-nudie spread surfaced.
But she had the last laugh by re-emerging with with a golden musical career;
Well-received Broadway appearances in Kiss of the Spider Woman and Into the Woods (Tony nomination);
A smash role in the hit series Ugly Betty, which is seguing into some Wisteria Lane action, as 'Nessy sassily enters Desperate Housewives;
And another Broadway success in the recent high-toned (even in her lingerie) Sondheim on Sondheim revue.
Is there anything this woman can't do?
No -- including serving up her life story so far.
