Vanessa Williams will graduate from college this weekend!
Vanessa Williams, beauty queen, actress, singer, mother, and skin care endorser can add another item to her already busy resume, college graduate! Coming this weekend I hear that she will be receiving her bachelor of fine arts degree from Syracuse University, after almost 25 years since she left the school.
The 45 year old can add this accomplishments to many other high honors she's received such as a Tony Award, two NAACP Image Awards, the George Arents Pioneer Medal in 1996(the university's most prestigious alumni award), and nine Grammy nominations.
The LA lady has been more recently seen around town with her NBA ex-baller, ex-husband, Rick Fox (yo he messed that one up for real dude) while attending to their children. Fox did a nice job in Tyler Perry's, "Meet the Browns". While it wasn't much like the play to me (except the funeral scene...very silly) it was a funny, and touching movie. If you haven't seen it, please do. I have to say I was most impressed with Lance Gross' (House of Payne actor) performance. He played Angela Bassets' high school aged son who at the ending of the movie got an NBA contract. The scene where he comes in from the streets after being gone all night to find his mother (Angela's character) angry and worried about the life style he was gonna choose, took my breath away. He did very well. And he's very nice to look at. Eheeheee. Go Eva (dates Lance)!
