Vanessa Williams ties the knot

Former Miss America Vanessa Williams tied the knot with her third husband, former accountant Jim Skrip on the 4th of July. Williams, 52, previously divorced public relations consultant Ramon Hervey and former Los Angeles Laker Rick Fox.

She has three children with Hervey and a daughter with Fox.

It isn't clear if Skrip is gainfully employed, or how long Williams has known him.

Williams was unceremoniously stripped of her Miss America crown after salacious photos of her posing half naked with another woman were printed in a gossip tabloid.

Williams, who is bisexual, said being molested by an older woman when she was just 10 made her sexually promiscuous with both men and women.

“At that young age, having that happen to you, in your body, it awakens your sexuality at an age where it shouldn’t be awakened,” she told Oprah during a taping of Oprah's Master Class in 2014.

“At 10 years old, I had no idea what it was, but I knew it felt good,” Williams added. “And I knew I shouldn’t be saying anything, and I didn’t tell anyone. But I knew it felt good, but also something that was not supposed to be happening.

“Had that not happened in my life and had I had an opportunity to have a normal courtship with a boyfriend at 16 or whatever and have your normal first kiss, there wouldn’t have been that shame that was always haunting me,” she said. “It made me more sexually promiscuous and more curious at a younger age than I should have been.”

      She's not bi-sexual she was molested as is the case with many people. They come into homosexuality by way of perversion. Usually when they are young children. The devil doesn't play fair.

      "she told Oprah during a taping of Oprah’s Master Class in 2014."

      Unless she addressed this in an effort to help other victims come forward, I really don't see why she's STILL being asked to talk about losing the Miss America crown, THIRTY YEARS LATER!!! She's not the only celebrity with past indiscretions. How dreadful to have it continuously dredged up, even as she's tried to move on with her life to become a wife, mother, and successful working actress/singer.

      What shady trash is written here. If she didn't lap your lady pool you can't speak to her sexuality. "Gainfully employed" is the same ghettoize language when so called high toned Black people say "professional." White folks with trusts, investments, inheritances, etc are not limited by such unsophisticated stupidity.

    • prynsexxx

      Kinda did, still does nothing for me. Specially since I slept through the last two episodes that I did "watch". Poor Crazy Eyes longing for V. Bish is playing the hell out of that "crazy" role.

    • Always me

      I don't know how long, but it seems like they dated for a more than a year. I remember her being on tour and talking about him.

    • Please

      Normally the sarcasm is funny, but a 10 year old (VW), getting molested by an adult female is not funny at all. To say a 10 year old "liked" being molested, taken advantage of, and sexualized far too young is down right stupid. At the time Vanessa was growing up people trusted each other. Read her book. She said she was going to tell her parents, but when she got back...her dad looked so sad. His brother passed and she just kept it.

      Read her interview where she said twice SHE LIKED IT. SR posted the link - go familiarize yourself.

      Like I said, since SHE LIKED what she was experiencing -a sexual act with a woman, she is bisexual.

      Not that I've ever seen em.

      Bye

    • CaramelDrop

      Which makes her bisexual. If she didn't like it she would be repulsed.

    • Please

      Thank you. I think an adult would understand a 10 year old is being abused and manipulated when inappropriately touched. Molesters intended for their abusive acts to feel pleasurable. Carmel Drop is clearly a hard headed and irrational person who feels the need to label child molestation as consentual bisexuality. As if a 10 year old brain understands sex.

    • Femme404

      No. You can be repulsed and your body still react. I knew a young girl who was raped by her stepfather and she would orgasm. These are things molestation victims have to deal when they become adults in order to heal properly.

      Im trying to figure out how someone that is gay, can hate other gay people are even bash them?

    • metrice7979

      What she did as teen was an experimentation, you never heard about her being with woman since. You do not call someone who has been married 3 times bisexual.

    • metrice7979

      Vanessa has done more for blacks, than your ass will.

    • Everclear1972

      Although (or maybe because) Sandra hates herself because she's gay she wants everyone else to be gay.

    • Chrazzy

      Ok, so I'm probably late, but you should definitely watch Wentworth on netflix. That dare I say I like better than OITNB...you should def check it out! Just finished season 3 last week! Loved it!

    • Kinggg

      This is a absolute lie every one you know is gay because something happened ? What kind of nonsense..

    • CaramelDrop

      Metrice7979 YOU may not call someone bisexual that had sex with the same sex - just because they married the opposite sex. A bisexual is a person who has sex with both sexes is bisexual. Being married doesn't negate the FACT VW performed a sexual act with another female and liked it. Point. blank. PERIOD.

    • CaramelDrop

      I'm sure these victims have certain models to go through to help recover from their abuse. However, that doesn't change the fact that you were having sex and enjoyed it.

      Forgive me if I'm wrong by assuming your homosexual due to your screen name, but maybe you don't understand that if a woman does not "want it" she will be dry. Some of us are always RTG so a lot of manipulation may not be needed to get the juices flowing.
      Even in these instances, rape victims are torn and stretched down there because the male tried to force himself in her and she was not wet - why!? BECAUSE SHE WASNT TURNED ON.

      Hopefully this is the ONE! Both of her previous husbands were cheaters. Fox cheated so badly he was always in the tabloids with some blonde. He has since said they should've remained friends instead of getting married. Vanessa had a wonderful father too so it is surprising to see her choose all these wrong men.
