The actress is set to be hitched to her boyfriend Jim Skrip, and this time she thinks he’s the one (the three?). “Third time’s the charm,” Williams joked to Us Weekly‘s Loose Talk, saying the phrase is “her own personal hashtag.” Us Weekly reports on the info Vanessa was trying to keep under wraps at her Sept 2014 Queen Latifah talk show appearance:
“Vanessa, I have been trying to have a conversation ladies and gents, but I’m blinded by the light coming from that bling ring on your finger,” Latifah joked to Williams, who has partnered with Dress for Success and TracFone to help empower women in the workplace through their “Success Is Calling” program. “Is there something that we need to know around here?”
Williams explained that she met her future husband — a Buffalo, N.Y. native — during a vacation to Egypt nearly two years ago. “You go across the world to find somebody who’s six hours away,” mused the actress, who has four children with exes Ramon Hervey and Rick Fox.
Oh man, can you imagine going on some weird Egypt excursion and finding Vanessa Williams on your trip? And then MARRYING HER? Life is amazing and I LOVE IT.
