Vanessa Williams spoke frankly about her experience with abortion as a teenager in a interview with ABC’s Juju Chang.
It’s frightening,” she said. “Being pregnant is the most frightening thing that happens in your life. I knew in high school that’s something I wasn’t prepared to do, or fight, or struggle with.”
Other bombshells in the 49-year-old’s memoir include how she was molested as a 10 year old. Williams was the first black woman to win Miss America, in 1984. She currently stars on Desperate Housewives.
