    In recent years, Williams has also been open about her difficult past. But through the ups and downs of life, the former Miss America has remained positive and open to loving again.

    "Some people enjoy pain, feeling like, 'I'm not alive if I'm not feeling anything, so I'd rather feel anger, I'd rather feel resentment and angst because I know that I'm alive,'" she shared on an episode of "Oprah's Master Class." "I'd much rather say, 'You know what? I'm alive and I want to feel good.'"
