Actually, Venus was on the "Weakest Link" show when it was still good

And recently, Venus/Serena were featured on Taboo. 'Taboo' is a game show like the game board. I saw part of one on TNN. They were a question. The player had to get the players to say "Williams Sisters"

The taboo words were:
Tennis
Racket
Wimbledon
US Open
and some others.

You know your popular when...

BTW, I watched it not because Venus was featured, but because my friend was actually one of the three who was playing the game.

The kid's name was Anthony, from Staten Island. Too bad he finished in third.

Woohoo..go Vee!

lol, Venus was mentioned on Taboo even though that was not the answer...I think it was someone who has had an Italian lifeguard or something as a lover...and one of the contestants shouted out Venus Williams! lmao

Tennis is Life.
