VANESSA WILLIAMS COVERS EBONY
"Ugly Betty" actress Vanessa Williams is on the May cover issue of "Ebony" magazine.
Shot by Matthew Jordan Smith, the former Miss America 1984 pose in a striped Cynthia Rowley dress and a blue topaz Jennifer Miller necklace with the accompanying headline, "Vanessa: Resilent Actress, Down-to-Earth Mom Redefines The 'Perfect' Family".
Because May is the month Mothers are celebrated, Vanessa also pose with her children - Sasha, Jillian, Melanie, and Devin. Also pictured is Vanessa's mother Helen Williams.
Below are some excerpts taken from COVER AWARDS:
For a woman who says “I love being married,” being twice divorced has been devastating….”Divorce is the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through in my life. It’s like a death, and it doesn’t get easier either time. Because it’s a dream that dies, and it’s heartbreaking,” says Williams.
“….So listening to sad music, crying all day, not wanting to get out of bed. It’s a grieving process. You have to feel the pain in order to process a big part of that is also forgiving the other person and forgiving yourself for feeling like you failed,” says Williams.
In related news, Vanessa also appears on the cover of USA Weekend, which you can check out here.
