My Weekend Crush
How delicious is Vanessa Williams? As Wilhelmina Slater, she is so divaliciously devious, you almost forget what a staggeringly stunning woman she is. Plus, no one works an eyebrow arch harder. In less than two seasons she has made the evil editrix extraordinaire a classic comedy character for the ages. Fabulous. Fierce. Fearsome. And while we all love the malevolent scheming, every now and then she shows a little heart. For a second. OK, make that a spilt second. And talk about your comebacks. After being forced to resign her 1984 Miss America crown is disgrace when nude photos of her appeared in Penthouse, Vanessa has gone on to be probably the most famous and successful of all the pageant’s past contestants. So, uh, suck it prudes. Also, does anyone else take secret delight in the fact that her racy shots were with another woman? (NSFW, ‘natch.) Insert patented Wilhelmina eyebrow raise here. Happy weekend, all.
