Vanessa Williams fans took to social media to celebrate after the actress, model, singer and former Miss America received an on-air apology from pageant organizers on Sunday.

Williams won the crown in 1983, but was forced to resign 10 months into her reign after Penthouse published several nude photos of her.

“I want to apologize for anything that was said or done that made you feel any less than the Miss America you are, and the Miss America you always will be,” Miss America CEO Sam Haskell said.
