ACTRESS VANESSA Williams tied the knot with fiancé Jim Skrip at the weekend.

The former Desperate Housewives star announced her engagement in September during a taping of The Queen Latifah Show.

“I got engaged,” the 52-year-old confirmed after Latifah joked with her about being blinded by her new bling. “I have had a lot of good things happen … I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings.”

Earlier this year, she opened up to Madame Noire about meeting Skrip ,who hails from her mother’s town of Buffalo, New York.

“You never know what you’ll find and where you’ll find it,” she said. “I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile. I wasn’t looking for anything. I’d been alone for a number of years and divorced for 10 years at that time.”

Skrip “accepted me for who I was after a wonderful first three-hour date of talking about ourselves,” said Williams. “We found out we had a lot of things in common.”

The couple were married in an elegant Fourth of July wedding in front of friends and family in Buffalo, New York.

The star’s daughters, Melanie Jillian and Sasha, served as her bridesmaids.

This is the third marriage for Williams, who has four children with exes Ramon Hervey II and Rick Fox.

Fox and Williams divorced in 2004.
