Vanessa Williams & Jim Skrip Tied The Knot On Independence Day


Vanessa Williams marries a third time

Vanessa Williams married her beau of three years, Jim Skrip, on Fourth of July after dating for three years.

The 52-year-old beauty tied the knot with Jim Skrip in her hometown of Buffalo, New York in front of friends and family on Saturday.

Vanessa wore an intricate yellow dress for the wedding ceremony, while the groom wore a grey suit and red tie.

The Ugly Betty star’s representative confirmed Williams’ wedding, but kept the details private.

The actress previously gushed over her former accountant beau, who she actually met while on vacation in Egypt in 2012.

She told Madame Noire, “I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile. I wasn’t looking for anything. I’d been alone for a number of years and divorced for ten years at that time. I found a hometown guy from my mom’s town in Buffalo, New York and started a conversation.

“He happened to be traveling alone and happened to know who I was but wasn’t a super fan. He accepted me for who I was after a wonderful first three-hour date of talking about ourselves. We found out we had a lot of things in common. Three years later we’re getting married”.

Vanessa Williams weds a third time

Vanessa confirmed her engagement on The Queen Latifah Show back in September.

This is the third wedding for Vanessa, who was married to Ramon Hervey from 1987 to 1997. They have two daughters together – Melanie, 28, and Jillian, 26, and son Devin, 22.

The brunette beauty was also previously married to Rick Fox. They divorced in 2005 after six years of marriage. They have a 15-year-old daughter together named Sasha.

Let’s hope the third time is a charm!
