Vanessa Williams reveals exciting news to Queen Latifah


Congrats are in order for Vanessa Williams! On Friday, Sept. 26, the Broadway and TV actress announced on “The Queen Latifah Show,” that she and her boyfriend, Jim Skrip, are tying the knot.

“Vanessa, I have been trying to have a conversation, but I’m blinded by the light coming from that bling ring on your finger,” Latifah joked. “Is there something that we need to know around here?”

The former “Ugly Betty” actress, 51, responded “Oh sorry darling. I got engaged,” Williams said blushing. “I have had a lot of good things happen. I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. [There have] been a lot of blessings on this trip.”

Williams and Skrip reportedly met over a year ago, during a trip to Egypt with her daughter. She and the Philly native have been inseparable ever since.
