Vanessa Williams revealed a deeply personal secret on Oprah's Master Class last night:
She was sexually abused at the age of 10.
The long-time actress said the culprit was an older cool who made everything seem "cool" and that the incident took place when Williams was on vacation with a friend's family.
"She came into the room where my friend and I were sleeping and she told me to lie down on the floor. She took my bottoms off and she said, 'Be quiet,' and she went down on me," Williams admitted.
"And at 10 years old, I had no idea what it was, but I knew it felt good and I knew I shouldn't be saying anything, and I didn't tell anyone. It felt good but also something that was not supposed to be happening."
