Vanessa Williams Opens Up About Molestation at Age 10 By 18-Year-Old Woman

Vanessa Williams has opened up about her molestation at age 10 by an 18-year-old woman during a summer vacation to California on an episode of Oprah’s Master Class on OWN.

“One night she came into the room where my friend and I were sleeping. She told me to lie down on the floor. And she took my bottoms off and she said, ‘Be quiet,’ and she went down on me,” the 51-year-old actress said on the show. “And at 10 years old, I had no idea what it was, but I knew it felt good, and I knew I shouldn’t be saying anything, and I didn’t tell anyone.”

“It awakens your sexuality at an age where it shouldn’t be awakened,” Vanessa added. “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… there wouldn’t have been that shame that was always haunting me. It made me more sexually promiscuous and more sexually curious at a younger age than I should have been.”

Last week, Tom was all smiles while posing backstage with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Vanessa Williams at the Broadway play The Trip to Bountiful at The Stephen Sondheim Theater in New York City.

Tom is the hardest-working, most focused, generous, passionate-about-the-form collaborator I could imagine,” J.J. Abrams recently shared about their collaboration on the 2006 film Mission Impossible III. “I was a first-time feature director, and before we started shooting Tom said, ‘I’m your actor; you’re the director.’ There was not a day on that movie when Tom was not supportive, encouraging, collaborative, excited. He never mandated anything. He never insisted on things going a certain way.”

Dave Annable & Rachael Taylor: '666 Park Avenue' at Comic-Con!

Terry O’Quinn, Vanessa Williams, Rachael Taylor, and Dave Annable attend a panel for their new ABC drama series 666 Park Avenue held during 2012 Comic-Con on Friday (July 13) at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

During the panel, the pilot episode was aired for the audience and the cast revealed that they knew nothing more about their characters than what was shown in that episode.

666 Park Avenue follows a couple (Taylor and Annable) who learns that the Manhattan building complex that they just moved into, including its upscale tenants, might be possessed by a mysterious demonic force.

“Jane is a sweet, innocent girl with a moral center. This one [looking at Dave], on the other hand, can be more easily led to temptation,” Rachel said of her character (via THR).

“Henry is incredibly ambitious which is why they moved into the building. There could be plenty of opportunities to work with Gavin (O’Quinn). It’s exciting to see where it [can go],” Dave said.

FYI: Rachael wore a Jenni Kayne top and shoes and Suno pants.
