She also recently joined the cast of the LeBron James-produced, Survivor’s Remorse on STARZ.
It doesn’t matter what age she is, when she’s not acting,Vanessa loves to cook in her free time.
“For me, there is nothing sexier, more alluring than an intimate, beautifully set dinner party with good friends,” exclaims Calloway. “I’ll take my dining room table over a high profile restaurant any day. Cooking my favorite dishes for some of my best friends and engaging them in great conversation is what makes my life special.”
