Vanessa Williams the 49-year-old Desperate Housewives star with her mother Helen Williams,  during an  interview with ABC’s Nightline,  spoke candidly about a high school pregnancy that ended in abortion.She explained how she had aborted her baby as a teenager because she was too scared to tell her parents. . She says she  believes she became sexually active early because of the  molestation. She  said was sexually abused as a 10-year-old by an 18-year-old female family friend, as reported.

She said:’I think I was highly sexualised because I was in fifth grade and I had this experience. ‘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.”Because it feels good, you’re like, OK, well this is supposed to be normal. That’s not normal for a 10-year-old to be seduced.’

In the book, she also talks about when she let a photographer take photos of her nude after he promised they would never be released.

‘I started out on top of a cab and ended up in a studded collar upstairs an hour later,’ Williams said. ‘That was my joke, saying, you know, ‘How could I go from this trusting, you know, photo shoot, to being in S&M clothing within the same shoot with a guy I didn’t know.” “I’ve learned to embrace my past. I embrace the choices that I have been given in my life”The photographer however didnt keep his promise and Vanessa lost her Miss America crown after featuring in Penthouse magazine.Williams was the first black Miss America.
