Williams, who plays an HIV-positive woman on the UPN show Half & Half this Monday (Feb. 13), says the role is one she holds close to her heart and was attracted to the character because she knows a lot of people that have been affected by HIV.
It was a tough role for Williams, who will be featured on three episodes, but it was worth it because she has received lots of support from her peers and friends.
Playing a person with HIV isnt the only challenge in Williams life.
As a member of one of the most successful pop groups of the 90s she has had her share of tabloid gossip.
One of her favorite rumors was the one where she was supposedly dating Beyonces mom in order to sing louder vocals in the group.
Despite the ridiculous rumors, she says the girls are all friends and have put all the diva stuff behind them.
