Vanessa Williams Marries Jim Skrip on Fourth of July!
The 52-year-old former Ugly Betty actress got married on Saturday (July 4), her rep confirms to JustJared.com. This is the third marriage for Vanessa, who was previously wed to Rick Fox and Ramon Hervey II.
Vanessa previously opened up about meeting Jim in Egypt in an interview with Madame Noire.
“You never know what you’ll find and where you’ll find it,” she said. “I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile. I wasn’t looking for anything. I’d been alone for a number of years and divorced for 10 years at that time.”
“[Jim] accepted me for who I was after a wonderful first three-hour date of talking about ourselves,” she added. “We found out we had a lot of things in common.”
People was first to report the wedding news. Congratulations to the happy couple!
