Vanessa Williams opened up in more detail about how she was sexually molested by a woman when she was 10 years old. The actress and former Miss America talked about the vacation with a friend's family that she says introduced her to sexual curiosity and promiscuity at a very early age.

She previously recounted the ordeal in her 2012 memoir You Have No Idea.

"We ended up staying with a family friend of theirs. They had an older daughter," she said, in an interview with "Oprah's Master Class" that aired Tuesday. "(She) was one of the cool girls. ... She made you want to feel like you were a grown-up."
