Vanessa Williams: Childhood Abuse "Made Me More Sexually Promiscuous" Than I Should Have Been

Vanessa Williams is sharing new details about her childhood molestation. When she was 10 years old, the actress was sexually molested by an older girl she met on vacation with a friend's family. At the time, she had no idea what was going on and didn't tell anyone what happened. Vanessa says, "I think it made me more sexually promiscuous and more curious at a younger age than I should have been." Williams refuses to let that moment stop her from moving forward with her life. The Ugly Betty star said, "I certainly had struggles in my past. It didn't change who I was, but it informed what I know not to do in the future or what I know to let go of. It's a continual lesson of just not holding onto the past.
