Wendy Williams is getting to the bottom of #Fartgate!
The daytime diva was the subject of her own Hot Topic on Thursday when she brought up an incident where viewers heard what sounded like the passing of gas during an episode of The Wendy Williams Show last week.
Naturally, the 55-year-old insisted she didn’t fart, and enlisted a member of her production team to explain where the suspicious sound actually came from.
Wendy told the audience:
“Let me tell you something right now, okay? I don’t lean over like this to release a fart, I lean over like this because it’s comfortable. If I sit all the time, it’s heavy on my spine. I like to release my hips and lean. I’ve been doing this for 11 years on this show… I have never farted once on this show. As a matter of fact, I barely fart, you know why? Gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching because all I do is talk.”
Hmm… we’re not sure the human body works like that gurl — but do go on!
Wendy went on to claim that if she had farted (which, she didn’t), she would’ve stopped talking to address it, because “farts are always funny.” She added:
“By the sound of that fart, I would have had to go change my costume, I would have left a mark in the seat. I wouldn’t even save the costume, I’d throw it away. It’d be soiled beyond soiled-tivity.”
To further exonerate herself, the former radio host called her gaffer — aka her “trusty steed” — John Anderson to the stage to shed more light on the situation, and he explained that the sound viewers heard in the clip was the team preparing for a chemistry experiment segment backstage. He said:
“We were filling up a fish tank backstage and we didn’t have the proper hose. It was sputtering like someone was farting. It wasn’t Wendy!”
For those who don’t know, the TV personality went viral after she appeared to let one rip while talking about football player Odell Beckham Jr. last week. Several Twitter users couldn’t help but discuss the Hot Topic, with one tweeting:
“Can’t sleep cause I can’t stop thinking about Wendy Williams letting out a nasty fart during Friday’s episode of her daytime talk show.”
Others felt it was karmic retribution for Williams for recently mocking Joaquin Phoenix‘s cleft lip.
Do U think Wendy’s mic really picked up something else, or is her team just covering her ass? Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) and share your thoughts in the comments!
