Vanessa Williams has been through the highs and lows of life in the spotlight—from growing up starstruck in the ’burbs; to her out-of-nowhere victory in the Miss America pageant; to losing her crown because of a youthful indiscretion; to bouncing back into an electrifying career in movies, Broadway, music and Ugly Betty. And right by her side has been Helen Williams, holding “Ness” down to earth with some no-nonsense mama wisdom and “The Look” that says more than words. The two hold nothing back, dishing on Vanessa’s 30-year showbiz career, and sharing dozens of intimate family photos. Wait ’til you read about her encounters with Robert DeNiro and other top stars. Because whatever you can imagine about Vanessa’s life, you have no idea.
