*This month, “Desperate Housewives” actress Vanessa Williams graces the cover of Ebony magazine, accompanied with a saucy feature about how she passed up a $600,000 tell-all-book deal.

She tells Ebony that the publisher wanted her to disclose some pretty intimate details about her first marriage to Ramon Hervey II and with former Laker Rick Fox.

“I don’t want to rehash the past,” she told Ebony. “I want to talk about what makes me, and why I’m a survivor. And [the publishers] didn’t want that. They wanted to know about my ex-husbands. But I’m not going to throw my kids’ dads under the bus.”

Classy lady.
