'Desperate Housewives' star Vanessa Williams covers the Power 100 issue of Ebony magazine and in the feature story confessed to recently passing on a $600,000 book deal to write a tell-all tome.
The 47-year-old chanteuse tells the African American lifestyle glossy that a book publisher wanted her to disclose intimate details about her first marriage to Ramon Hervey II and second marriage to former NBA star Rick Fox in a memoir.
"I don't want to rehash the past," she told Ebony. "I want to talk about what makes
me, and why I'm a survivor. And [the publishers] didn't want that. They wanted to know about my ex-husbands. But I'm not going to throw my kids' dads under the bus."
The 15-time Grammy Award nominee, who was also nominated three times for Emmy Awards for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy for her role as Wilhelmina Slater on 'Ugly Betty,' joined the seventh season of 'Desperate Housewives' earlier this year after 'Betty' was canceled.
