 Vanessa Williams is an American singer, actress, producer and former fashion model. In 1983, she became the first African-American woman crowned Miss America, but a scandal arose when Penthouse magazine bought and published nude photographs of her. She relinquished her title early and was succeeded by the first runner-up, Suzette Charles of New Jersey. Williams rebounded by launching a career as an entertainer, earning multiple Grammy, Emmy, and Tony Award nominations. She is arguably the most successful former Miss America winner in the field of entertainment.

    A scandal over BS in my opinion, yes they’re a little “explicit”, but it only confirms she deserved the crown. She was gorgeous.
