Movies of the week
Some movies have such strange things going for them. 'The Marriage Counselor' is one such movie. The movie which itself explores complicated relationships and circumstances has stars dealing with that sort of stuff in real life.
Vanessa Williams is part of the cast. The sultry actress and mother of four have had quite a life. She has not needed any counseling in real life and has a strong mother putting it out with her through every situation.
The mother daughter duo has come up with a memoir in form of a book recently. The book shocks, astonishes, inspires and explores. It makes for a very interesting read.
We all know Vanessa was the first African-American Miss America and lost the crown thanks to her nude videos that rocked the country then. We never quite knew the person and the psyche behind her such random acts.
May be her book will help us understand her and all the emotional turmoil the actress has been under. She had been molested when she was a little child by a female. It is a moving episode in the actress's life that is strong and rebellious as we know her today. She also confesses to having had an abortion in teenage. Now, such revelations are not easy to make and need a lot of character. There are going to be questions, remarks and a lot of furor. But someone like Vanessa and her mom Helen are strong characters who can handle it all.
