Vanessa Williams has spent her whole life causing a stir. Why should now be any different?
She’s made history as Miss America, earned Grammy, Tony and Emmy award nominations for her achievements in sound, on stage and on the screen but it’s far from curtains for this fire-starter.
With her role as the formidable Wilhelmina Slater on ABC’s hit series “Ugly Betty” put to bed with the final season of the show, Vanessa’s got a brand new role that’s sure to make waves.
At 47 this mother of four knows plenty about managing a household, but joining the cast of “Desperate Housewives” is a whole other ballgame.
Williams, who plays new Wisteria Lane resident Renee Perry, is rumored to be a woman on her cougar prowl. Her character has a rocky marriage to a Major League baseball player— sound familiar? We can’t wait to see what happens next.
