Vanessa Williams got married nearly three years ago. And her new husband looks A LOT different than then men that we've seen her with in the past. Vanessa used to date ATHLETES and ACTORS, and some of the best looking men in the world.
But as Vanessa has matured she realized that the only things she REALLY needed a man to have was LOVE IN HIS HEART . . . and MONEY IN HIS WALLET. Jim made a fortue in real estate.
He's not quite the LOOKER that we imagined Vanessa would settle down with. But hell, if he loves her and he's rich . . . we're HAPPY WITH VANESSA'S CHOICE.
Williams has been married three times. She married her first husband, Ramon Hervey II, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in 1987 just a few years after giving up her beauty crown, and gave birth to her first child at this time. Hervey was a public relations specialist who had been hired to resuscitate her career after her resignation as Miss America in July 1984.They have three children (Melanie, Jillian Hervey, and Devin) and divorced in 1997.
She then married NBA basketball player Rick Fox in 1999. They have one daughter, Sasha Gabriella Fox, and divorced in 2004. In 2015, Williams married Jim Skrip, a businessman from Buffalo, New York.
Her daughter Jillian Hervey is an American singer, dancer and member of the group Lion Babe.
Williams says she met her current husband Jim on a vacation in Egypt.
