Did she save the best for last?
Lifelong Westchester resident Vanessa Williams married her businessman beau Jim Skrip over the weekend. The couple reportedly tied the knot during an elegant July 4th ceremony in Western New York.
The actress, who lives in Chappaqua, met the former accountant, who is from Buffalo, while vacationing in Egypt two years ago. “I went half way around the world to meet someone who’s close by,” she said in an interview with Essence Magazine.
During an appearance on ‘The View,’ Williams admitted that she was the one who asked Skrip to go out on their first date. She has described him as “just a nice, regular, gorgeous guy.”
It was the third trip down the aisle for Williams, who ended her marriage to her former publicist Ramon Hervey in 1997 and divorced basketball star Rick Fox in 2004. The “Ugly Betty” star loaned the Vera Wang gown she wore at her second wedding to the New Castle Historical Society last year.
