Vanessa Lynn Williams (born March 18, 1963) is an American singer, actress, producer and former fashion model. In 1983, she became the first African-American woman crowned Miss America. Seven weeks before the end of her reign, however, a scandal arose when Penthouse magazine bought and published nude photographs of Williams. She relinquished her title 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.

I throw myself into my work. It`s exhausting. It`s time-consuming. I feel guilty for not being with my kids all the time, But then when I`m home with my children and devoting my life to my kids, in the back of my mind I`m wondering whether I`ll ever get employed again. So there`s a constant battle of doing what fuels me and what I do best. And also, being there for my kids.
