“UGLY BETTY” Star VANESSA WILLIAMS Reportedly Owes $370k In Unpaid Taxes

(sings) “Hello…Is it me you’re looking for?”

(says) …“Why yes Uncle Sam. Just let me whip out my checkbook and write you this check for a cool $1.1 million dollars right quick.”

Well that’s something singer-songwriter Lionel Richie can sing and say that many of us simply cannot.

Back in 2012 Richie was slapped with a tax lien for failing to pay more than $1 million dollars income taxes for the 2010 year but just recently (unlike the rest of normal folks) Lionel paid the tax debt-in full-‘easy like Sunday morning’ and well…’sailed on’ about his way.

Other notables having been recently placed up under the IRS microscope of scrutiny include singers Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, rapper FloRida, Courtney Love and actor Michael Madsen.

P.S

sticks tongue out really fast

Yeah…I managed to interject two of my favorite Vanessa Williams throwbacks.
