Miss America

Vanessa Williams and Miss America Organization still at odds, report says

Actress on why she isn't slowing down


It seems the Miss America Organization and Vanessa Williams are not ready to kiss and make up.

Williams is set to return to the pageant as a judge three decades after she gave up the crown amid a nude photo scandal. 

According to TMZ, Williams believed the Miss America execs would apologize to her at the beginning of the live show set to air on Sunday. However, sources told the gossip site that the execs expected the actress to apologize for the nude photos before returning the crown to her.

Williams, the first African-American Miss America, won the title in 1984 but resigned after Penthouse magazine published sexually explicit photographs of her taken several years earlier.

She joins pageant hosts Chris Harrison and Brooke Burke-Charvet, music curator Nick Jonas and celebrity judges Brett Eldredge, Taya Kyle, Danica McKellar, Kevin O'Leary, Amy Purdy and Zendaya.
