But it wasn't her first yummy treat.  Her co-stars in her new Broadway production The Trip To Bountiful laced her with a cake this past Friday.  She tweeted:

Happy Birthday to me from the @BountifulBway cast today during rehearsal #redvelvetcake

She's been in the business for three decades, and she still keeps herself a great job or two at all times.  Oh how we miss Wilhemina Slater....

Vanessa's starring in the upcoming Temptation movie.  And in case you didn't know, Ms. Williams serves as the voice of the sexy Brown M&M in the candy's commercials....and it's the first time the brown M&M has ever had an actual character.  Chick even makes candy fab.
