Former Destiny’s Child Star Is HIV ‘Survivor’ On ‘Half & Half’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Michelle Williams may have survived being third wheel to Beyonce Knowles in the hit group Destiny’s Child, but now she must survive one of the most serious diseases in the world – HIV.

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 isn’t 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 Beyonce’s 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.
