I know we all remember Kellie Williams from the TV show Family Matters playing the part of Laura Winslow, the love interest of Erkel (played by Jaleel White). Well according to Washington Post, Kellie Williams married her real life sweetheart Hannibal Jackson in a simple, yet beautiful wedding…
The night before his Sept. 5 wedding, all of Hannibal Jackson’s groomsmen went out on the town. Jackson returned instead to his hotel room, opened his Bible, and bowed his head.
Prayer brought him to this juncture, Jackson believed, so it would be prayer that ushered him through his last night of single life.
In telling the story of how he came to marry Kellie Williams, the actress who played Laura Winslow in the ’90s sitcom “Family Matters,” Jackson, 33, starts in October 2001. One Sunday he asked to accompany a co-worker named Rob Brown to church — “and that,” he says, “was the day I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior.” [Source]
For years Jackson and Williams had been listening — separately — to Rob Brown and another mutual friend talk about setting them up. The chatter had “gone in one ear and out the other,” Williams recalls, until an actual meeting was arranged at a party in August 2007.
During one such conversation, Williams told Jackson where she stood: “I said, ‘You’re either my boyfriend, or this is the last time we’re going to talk.’ ” That proclamation came exactly two weeks after they met. “All my friends said the same thing — ‘I can’t believe you said that!’ ” she admits. “But I don’t have time to be playing games with people.”
After her car broke down and Williams found herself calling Jackson for help, rather than her father, she realized the man she affectionately calls “a square” had already rooted himself in her heart. “I thought about life as a whole and thought, ‘What a great person to go along this journey with,’ ” she says. “I thought, ‘I wouldn’t want to miss this.’ “
When he proposed after 10 months of dating, she said yes. “Because it’s a miracle,” she explains. “It’s not a fairy tale. It’s a real guy who’s just a great guy.”

Busta Rhymes to pay $75,000 to assault victim. This may actually be good news for Busta Rhymes, considering the victim and his lawyer were seeking $500,000 in damages due to psychological after effects. To top it all off, Busta Rhymes lawyer didn’t even bother to show to for the trial or hearing.
A Brooklyn hearing officer yesterday ordered rap star Busta Rhymes to fork over $75,000 to an Albany man who was doused with water, pummeled with bottles and sucker-punched by the hip-hop star and a bodyguard.
The injured man, Alex Duncan, testified that he suffered nightmares and psychological after-effects of the Sept. 13, 2003, attack during a break in a rap concert at SUNY Albany.
“It’s all right,” Duncan, 32, a recently laid-off school groundskeeper, said of the award.
“I wanted something to come out of it. I don’t even go to parties anymore, because there’s always someone asking, ‘What happened to that Busta Rhymes case?’ ”
Duncan’s lawyer, Ronald Hart, had requested $500,000 of the hearing officer, Luigi Marano.
Rhymes’ lawyer, Robert Kalina, was a no-show for both the trial and yesterday’s damages hearing. He did not return a call seeking comment. [Source]
