Vanessa Williams has opened up on Oprah’s Master Class about being molested at the age of ten by an 18-year-old girl and is explaining the long-term impact that it has had on her life.
In the Oprah’s Master Class video, Vanessa says that she traveled to California to visit family friends the summer before entering fifth grade, when an older girl performed oral sex on her.
“She told me to lie down on the floor. She took my bottoms off and she said, ‘Be quiet,'” the actress told cameras. “She went down on me.”
Vanessa states that as it was happening, she didn’t know what was going on, that it felt good, but she knew it was wrong. Upon arriving back in New York she attempted to tell her parents, but as the plane landed, she realized that there had been a death in the family and didn’t want to make things worse.
While she has come to terms with it enough to be able to open up about it on camera, she says it has had negative effects on her sexuality:
“It awakens your sexuality at an age where it shouldn’t be awakened. I think that had that not happened in my life and I had a opportunity to have, you know, a normal courtship with a boyfriend at 16 or whatever and have your normal first kiss, there wouldn’t have been that shame that was kind of always haunting me.”
“I think it made me more sexually promiscuous and more curios at a younger age than I should have been,” she said.

Kim Kardashian Savagely Claps Back At Lamar Odom Over Khloe Diss
Let’s be clear, Kim Kardashian isn’t a savage, but her clapback to Lamar Odom after he low key dissed her sister Khloe was pretty ferocious.
After Odom appeared on BET’s The Man Cave and told the hosts that he knew his marriage to Khloé was over “when she was with her second or third NBA ballplayer,” Kim got him all the way together.
“Or second or third brothel,” she shot back via Twitter.
The former NBA player reportedly frequented brothels including Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch were he infamously overdosed back in October 2015. Khloe helped nurse him back to health and even called off their divorce until he was fully recovered.
Odom told the hosts that he has nothing but love for her and wished well with her new relationship with Tristan Thompson and her pregnancy. “I’m happy for her! She took care of me,” he said. “She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
You can see the full episode of BET’s Mancave Thursday at 8/9c.
