Extra sidebar: It was a bit disappointing to watch Kandi and Phaedra faces light up with so much joy when Kenya was berating me at their first lunch. Their facial expressions were irreplaceable and unforgettable.
I adore Vanessa Williams, we actually have many friends in common. I called her to ask for advice and help with my pageant. She was so gracious, positive, and excited to assist me in any way she could. Her love and support wer very validating, and meant the world to me! It was such an honor to get personal counsel from the first African American woman to be crowned Miss America. I am inspired by her strength, talent, kindness,and generosity. Much continued success to you and your amazing career. You are the queens of queens! Sidebar: I am still looking forward to lunch with you the next time I'm in New York City.
