Vanessa Williams Says She Was Molested And Had An Abortion

Vanessa Williams had a rough childhood – first she was molested by a family friend and then she got pregnant in high school and got a secret abortion!  Altogether too much information – why is Vanessa telling us this?  Oh yes – money!  The greedy Desperate Housewives star decided to cash in on her childhood struggles in a new memoir – You Have No Idea.

Vanessa somehow got pregnant as a teenager and aborted the child without her mother Helen’s knowledge.  Vanessa said she didn’t feel ready to be a parent.

In an interview Nightline Vanessa said:

 “Being pregnant is the most frightening thing that happens in your life. I knew in high school that’s something that I was not prepared to do or fight or struggle with.”

The 49 year old Vanessa now has four children – three from her first marriage to former manager Ramon Harvey II and one child with ex-husband and basketball star Rick Fox.
