Vanessa/Wilhelmina #3: Because she doesn't need a baseball bat to be kick-ass scary
Welcome to the {Vanessa Williams}

A p p r e c i a t i o n Thread!

"I throw myself into my work. It's exhausting.
It's time-consuming. I feel guilty for not being
with my kids all the time, But then when I'm
home with my children and devoting my life to
my kids, in the back of my mind I'm wondering
whether I'll ever get employed again. So there's
a constant battle of doing what fuels me and what
I do best. And also, being there for my kids."

Vanessa is a movie star

"Success is the sweetest revenge."

"I ask our Legislature to do whatever is
necessary to protect the future of my child.
All I want is what every other parent wants
- what's best for my child."

Vanessa is a friend

"You came to clean out your office?
Actually, I came to clean out yours."

"Wow. My first public inning!"

"Did you just gesture at me when you said Kwanzaa?"

TFTNT Hestia!

Sadia, thanks for the pics. Yellow goes very well with her skintone:nod:.

I also like that her daughter is wearing pink and white, they both look really spring-like :D

Lovely pics, Sadia! Is her daughter wearing braces? That's so cute! And their dresses are bright and beautiful also. :)

Thanks Sadia for the pics. She looks beautiful, I love her in bright colors like that. Cute to see her with her daughter.

Oooh add me please, I love Willy!! :D
Didn't quite as much in s1 but she's grown and evolved, and I honestly love the s3 Wilhelmina!! :)

Wynter 04-26-2009 05:22 PM

Welcome to the thread! :wave:

I agree with you, Wilhelmina was always a love-to-hate character for me, but it's amazing how much she's changed this season, I love seeing a more human side to her. I've been more sympathetic with Willie this season than I thought was possible!

Veiled Vesta 04-26-2009 09:21 PM

Same here! Owning one third of the company she so fervently wanted seems to have dialed back her evilness... by one third, if my math is correct. :look: Plus the baby must help a little.

Wynter 04-27-2009 12:29 PM

:nod: The baby has definitely helped in making her softer, she knew it was another chance to raise him right, rather than mess things up the way she did with Nico.

Veiled Vesta 05-02-2009 06:04 PM

*sigh* So much for a softer Wilhelmina. What she did to Christina was downright cruel. I sense she's got something up her sleeve...

BTW, I wonder if they'll ever bring back or even mention Nico?

I second that :pout: I really disliked how if it turned out William was Christina's, she cared more about losing a share of the company, rather than actually losing a son. Seemed like the same old Willie after all :rolleyes:

I can't help but think she might be lying about the test results. Or at least, I hope she is, I want the baby to be Christina's!

colorful_dust 05-05-2009 02:30 PM

I really think she's lying. :nod: I'm so curious to see how this plays out though.

She hasn't ever bonded enough with 'her' baby, so if she does lose him I won't be feeling that bad I don't think...

Veiled Vesta 05-17-2009 10:00 PM

So by now we all know that Wilhelmina faked those test results (kudos to all of us for being ahead of the writers on that one - or maybe Wilhelmina is just that evil and easy to predict). But who knew she can lose her hold on the rich benefactor just as quickly as she got it? Gotta say, Wilhelmina deserved that Claire powergrab bitch slap. ;)
