Vanessa Williams

Is Over Nudie Beauty Scandals

5/14/2009 6:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vanessa Williams was pressured into resigning her Miss America post in 1984 for the same thing Miss California just got away with -- gettin' nekkid on camera -- so we figured she'd be ticked Carrie Prejean kept her crown....

The original nudie beauty queen stonewalled us, but if you watch the clip, you probably have a pretty good idea what she really thinks.

Ooooo Noooo!    

Vanessa was not just nude pictures, it was simulated muff-diving on another chick, and a LOT more graphic. Not that I care one way or the other, but the two cases are not the same.

Not quite the same thing    

Uh,, for the record, back in 1984 when Vanessa Williams did her "nude shots" they depicted a "girl on girl" scenario which was pretty graphic for the time. Historical perspective is always important when making comparison arguments like your "for the same thing" that "Miss California just got away with." Things were a lot different 25 years ago than they are now. I think that Vanessa Williams has always shown herself to be very classy and deserves a lot of respect for overcoming a vicious press and public that did so much harm to her in her youth. I only hope that Miss California is as lucky.

Showing some tit is different from sticking your face in another chick's crotch.
Can't expect some 20 year olds and a fruit to know that though.

"EXACTLY" the same thing?? Are you serious? Nice job reporting the FACTS and not your OPINION. Not!

yikes    

i'm just really tired of the lefty liberals trying to shove their Bible down everyone's throats. yes, the Bible does say not to lie, but what about equality for everybody, you know, non-liars and liars. i mean everyone deserves the same rights after all. you'd think the left would be fighting for carrie.

fun fact: apr. 15 is the official day against liar-phobia. of course this is to coincide with the day taxes are due, and seeing as it also is the day taxes are due for politicians, including all the ones that obama has had to have step down from nominations for important posts due to some "slight tax forgetfulness," it's a perfect fit!

who dat    

Vanessa must have a problem finding a date. The guy she was obviously out with is old enough to be her grandfather. She stil looks pretty hot for her age. She needs to find a younger stud

Ummm, okay, I just watched the clip and she simply looks blase and annoyed. You can't read anything into her expression. Wishful thinking and nice attempt to create drama where there isn't any, TMZ.

Um, Vanessa's picks may be more graphic, but at least she didn't lie about it. She gave up her crown gracefully -- besides you know that skank ho has more bones in her closet that have not surfaced yet. and i'm sure Vanessa had a lot to say about miss. california, but she is too much of a lady to say it publicly. -- watching Larry King now, DONALD IS A MEDIA WHORE!

Vanessa Williams and Carrie Prejean aren't even in the same class! VW paid her dues and yes, her pics were way more graphic...but she handled all of it w/grace and class. Plus, i think time has told the tale that VW is incredibly talented, beautiful and successful. Who could wish her ill will? She turned in HER crown. CP is a LIAR, has violated her contract, lied about her pics, LIED about a "wind blew her top open"....she's such an idiot. i'm sure history will remember her as a liar who blew whomever she had to to keep her crown.
