Vanessa Williams revisited a
painful childhood trauma on a
recent episode of Oprah s Master
Class: the actress, singer and for-
mer Miss America, now 51, was
molested at age ten by an 18-year-
The actress talked about the
vacation with a friend's family that
she says introduced her to sexual
curiosity and promiscuity at a very
early age. She previously recounted
the ordeal in her 2012 memoir You
Have No Idea.
"We ended up staying with a
family friend of theirs. They had
an older daughter," she said.
"(She) was one of the cool girls.
... She made you want to feel like
you were a grown-up."
Williams said that her admiration
for the 18-year-old woman
changed after the night when she
came into her room when others
"She told me to lie down on the
floor," Williams said. "She took my
bottoms off and she said, Be
"She went down on me."
The Ugly Betty actress said at
just ten years old she didn't under-
stand what was happening.
"I had no idea what it was, but
I knew it felt good," Williams said.
"I knew it felt good, but (was)
also something that was not sup-
posed to be happening."
Williams said she wanted to tell
her parents about it but never got
the chance. She came home from
the vacation only to learn that there
had been a death in the family.
"I saw my dad's face and his face
was gray. And I just found out that
his brother had died," she said.
"That was a family drama. I
never really talked to my dad about
it. I kind of suppressed it."
Speaking of the lasting effect the
encounter with the woman had on
her life and relationships, Williams
said she carried shame growing up.
"It awakens your sexuality at an
age where it shouldn't be awak-
ened," she said.
"Had that not happened in my
life and had I had an opportunity
to have a normal courtship with a
boyfriend at 16 or whatever... There
wouldn't have been that shame
that was always haunting me. It
made me more sexually promis-
cuous and more sexually curious
at a younger age than I should have

In a parking lot in Silicon Valley,
two robot security guards were on
The creation of Mountain View, Cal-
ifornia, company Knightscope, and
resembling something out of a Star Wars
movie, the K5 security robots stand five
feet tall, weigh 300 lbs, and are outfitted
with a laser scanner and a 360-degree
video camera that streams live footage
to (people in) a command centre.
The robots are autonomous, roving
throughout a designated perimeter,
recording activity and navigating around
people and things in their paths.
They are designed for information
and intimidation rather than confronta-
tion. The unarmed robots are intended
to scare off potential burglars.
But if one should persist, Knightscope
co-founder Stacy Stephens said, "Then
the robot is looking at the video, listening
for glass breakage, any loud sound that
breaking in would cause. We'll get the
license plate, picture of the vehicle, geo-
tag location, and time."
The company said the robots are cur-
rently in operation at one Silicon Valley
location, but did not disclose where.
They claimed to have a waiting list
of about four dozen companies in line
to acquire a K5 and they expect to put
many of these robots in place sometime
next year in outdoor settings, such as
corporate campuses, college campuses
and open air malls. (CBS News)
