Vanessa Lynn Williams was crowned Miss America on September 17, 1983, making her the first-ever African American to win the title. But the fun didnâ€™t last long: Ten months into her reign, nude photos surfaced and she was forced to resign. That didnâ€™t stop Vanessa. She has had a successful singing and acting career (perhaps her most popular role has been on Ugly Betty) and has also been a spokesperson for RadioShack, acne kit Proactiv, makeup makers Lâ€™OrÃ©al and Crest Rejuvenating Effects Toothpaste. She has four kids, has been married twice and was born on March 18, 1963, in Tarrytown, New York.
