Vanessa Williams Molested as a Child by a Woman

Vanessa Williams recalls being sexually molested by woman as a child

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."
