Episode Description

The first African American Miss America (1984), Vanessa Williams is a triple threat having earned Grammy, Emmy and Tony nominations. Not one to let controversy get in her way, she began her career in entertainment after resigning as Miss America. The reason: unauthorized nude pictures of her published in Penthouse Magazine. Two decades later pictures of her husband kissing another woman would cause more embarrassment. Best known for her #1 hit "Save the Best for Last" and her devilish role as Wilhelmina Slater on the comedy Ugly Betty... Vanessa Williams remains a force to be reckoned with.
