Many viewers swear the wet sound was Wendy letting out a fart on air. Some viewers claim they heard it but others say they did not hear anything. Some viewers say the video clip was altered to add the fart.

Others said the incident was "Karma" after Wendy mocked actor Joaquin Phoenix's cleft lip. Wendy apologized profusely for her insensitive comments toward the "Joker" star.

What causes excessive flatulence?

Flatulence is the accumulation of gasses in the colon and rectum. Doctors say passing gas is normal. Most healthy people pass gas between 14 and 23 times a day. But if you break wind more than that, you should consult a doctor because you could have a more serious GI problem.

Excessive flatulence is usually harmless and caused by swallowing air, chewing gum, sucking hard candy, eating gas-producing food such as lentils and beans, eggs, cheese, drinking carbonated sodas, or eating soluble fiber (like that found in some fruits and vegetables).

Black people are more lactose intolerant than other races. Blacks should avoid dairy products such as cow's milk that contain lactose.

Tyler Perry responded to the intense pressure from a writers union and television viewers who criticized him over his "writers room" comments.

Perry promised to give real writers more opportunities to work on future projects at his film and TV production studios in Atlanta, GA after facing backlash for preferring to write his own TV series.

The actor/producer/director has been heavily criticized for laying off writers because he allegedly didn't want to pay union fees.

He recently found himself at the center of controversy after trying to highlight his strong work ethic by revealing he does not have a writers room for dramas like The Have and the Have Nots, The Oval, and Sistas.

Critics say the lack of real writers at Perry's studios shows in the subpar quality of his TV projects.

In her editorial for Medium.com, titled "I Give Up on Tyler Perry," Morgan Jerkins said Perry's scripts depicting Black women have not evolved in 25 years.

Jerkins writes:

"I did not like A Fall from Grace... The older women were characterized as lonely and downtrodden as if these were justifiable reasons for the abuse they suffered."

In a recent interview, Perry revealed an incident early on in his career that led him to stop using a writing team.

Perry, 50, said screenwriters turned in scripts that required rewrites -- and the writers would get paid for each script rewrite. Perry implied that the writers - who were all Black - tried to take advantage of him.

"It's not that I don't want help," Perry explained on daytime talk show The View. "I had a really bad experience with a writers room once, and they were turning in scripts, and you know, you pay for these scripts and they turn them in, and the scripts are not right, then you have to rewrite them and you have to pay them again.

"And then the returned scripts, we'd put them on the air and the ratings would drop. So I said, 'Listen, my audience, I've been cultivating this for 25 years, they know how I'm speaking to them, they know specifically what I'm saying,' so I realized then that I needed to continue to just do what I do, and I don't mind."

However, following the backlash to his comments, Perry insists he will offer job opportunities for non-Tyler Perry projects to writers seeking to break into the industry.

"There will be other projects at the studio that are not Tyler Perry-labeled projects that have writers rooms and writers will get a chance," he promised.

Rapper DaBaby couldn't help himself when he spotted a curvy mannequin in a convenience store. The rapper dropped his pants and simulated sex acts with the mannequin until it broke in half.

The "Suge" rapper has been in the headlines for non-music related incidents lately. DaBaby, real name Jonathan Kirk, pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon and "self-defense" after a shootout in a Huntersville, NC Walmart. A 19-year-old man was killed in the shootout. Charges against the rapper were dropped in March 2019.

Earlier this month, DaBaby was arrested in Miami in connection with the robbery and assault of a music promoter. He was released from jail on $1,500 bond.

Wendy Williams chastised NFL star Odell Beckham Jr for laying hands on another man's butt over the weekend.

The incident occurred during a post-game celebration in LSU's locker room after winning the national title at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana on Monday night. The Louisiana native is an LSU alumni.

When Beckham spotted an officer bending over, he stared intently at the cop's buttocks before delivering a hard slap on the cop's butt.

The New Orleans Police Department issued an arrest warrant for Beckham for "simple assault" on Thursday.

"You should've known better," said Williams, 55, on Friday's episode of her daytime talk show.

"Odell at 27 years old, you're old enough to understand political correctness in the time we live in now. You can't just slap people on the booty. He probably knows it's not right for a man to a woman or a woman to a man, but you can't even do that locker room thing. That cop wasn't playing that."

Wendy continued: "You're lucky you only got battery. What if he filed for sexual assault? ... Odell, come on, you can't play that clown mess!"

Nola.com reports that a judge declined to approve an initial warrant because it was for misdemeanor sexual battery. The judge later approved an amended warrant for simple battery.

Archie Harrison's info was accidentally removed from his mother Meghan Markle's biography on the Royal Family's official website.

Archie's parents shocked Britain when they announced they were leaving the Royal Family in an Instagram post on Jan. 8.

According to People.com, the couple's 8-month-old son was "accidentally" removed from Meghan's official profile on the Royal.UK website.
 

The omission was likely made because it was widely believed at the time, that Queen Elizabeth would take custody of the royal heir. The Queen took custody of Harry and his brother, Prince William, after their parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles divorced in 1996.

British law states all royal grandchildren are in the legally custody of the Queen. But Archie is the Queen's great-grandson, which means she does not have legal custody of him.

The website also claimed Meghan and Harry still reside in a small cottage at Kensington Palace. But Harry and Meghan moved out of their Nottingham Cottage on the palace grounds in April, just before Archie was born.

In related news, Queen Elizabeth is reportedly "annoyed" that Harry and Meghan spent over $2 million in taxpayer money to renovate and decorate Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

Harry is currently staying alone at Frogmore Cottage, while Meghan and Archie are currently living in a $14 million mansion in Vancouver.

Harry has no plans to reunite with his family any time soon.

A New Orleans judge initially declined to approve an arrest warrant for misdemeanor sexual battery against NFL star Odell Beckham Jr for butt slapping a cop.

The incident occurred during a post-game celebration in LSU's locker room after winning the national title at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana on Monday night.

When Beckham Jr. spotted an officer bending over, he couldn't help himself. He stared intently at the cop's buttocks before delivering a hard slap on the cop's butt.

According to AL.com, the police officer told LSU players they could not smoke cigars inside the locker room. But another officer allegedly told the players it was okay to smoke in the locker room.

Nola.com reports that a judge declined to approve the warrant because it was for misdemeanor sexual battery. The judge later approved an amended warrant for simple battery.

The judge's action prompted outrage on social media among #MenToo groups.

Police officers are outraged at the double standard for a celebrity football player. One officer wrote on Facebook: "If one of us butt slapped a female reporter, we would be fired!"

On Friday's episode of Atlanta's daytime talk show Sister Circle, co-host Rashan Ali, 2nd from left, argued that Beckham was being discriminated against because he is a star wide receiver.

Her co-hosts (L-R): Egypt Sherrod, Quad Webb and Trina Braxton agreed that a man touching another man's buttocks without consent is not a crime.

She also wants the court to enforce a settlement agreement they made before their youngest child was born in September.

She said she moved out of Newton's Atlanta home and moved with their children to her native Maryland.

Antonio Brown's agent has filed paperwork with the NFL player's association to cut ties with the troubled wide receiver until he seeks psychological help.

Sports agent Drew Rosenhaus filed the documents to terminate his representation of Brown after the 31-year-old Florida native live-streamed himself screaming profanity at his baby mama, Chelsie Kyriss, and police officers outside his Hollywood, Florida home.

The video was the latest in a string of self-destructive incidents that prompted his release from two NFL teams in 3 months.

Kanye West has booked his Sunday Service choir to sing at a controversial evangelical event this weekend.

The rapper's gospel choir is booked to perform at Awaken 2020, a religious gathering that has sparked outrage from the LGBTQ community for its lineup of speakers.

The event is scheduled for the Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Cindy Jacobs, who has been openly hostile towards gay marriage, and Lou Engle, an advocate of Uganda's anti-homosexuality bill, are booked to speak during the event, WENN.com reports.

Engle had high praise for Kanye, who gave up secular music to lead the unwashed masses to Jesus.

"We believe Kanye is a sign to this nation that in a moment, thousands and thousands can be swept into the kingdom when (God) converts key people and their voices will be like thunder," Engle told The Western Journal.

Kanye, 42, was not fazed by the backlash on social media. The producer and his wife Kim Kardashian, 39, watched the LA Lakers defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Staples Center on Jan. 13.

Fans online expressed their indignation and outrage that Kanye has agreed to allow his choir to perform at the religious gathering.

"People will still stan (stalk) Kanye despite him legitimizing and supporting radical anti-LGBTQ evangelicals/bigots," one fan tweeted, while another wrote: "What a f--king a--hole".

Kanye is rumored to be taking his Sunday Service choir on a world tour later this year.

Jillian Michaels (right) stopped just short of apologizing for fat-shaming morbidly obese pop singer Lizzo.

Twitter dragged the celebrity fitness trainer after she asked: "Why are we celebrating [Lizzo's] body?"

"Why does it matter That's what I'm saying. Like why aren't we celebrating her music? 'Cause it isn't gonna be awesome if she gets diabetes," she said during an appearance on BuzzFeed's AM to DM series last week.

She continued: "I'm just being honest. I love her music, my kid loves her music, but there's never a moment when I'm like, 'I'm so glad she's overweight.' Why do I even care? Why is it my job to care about her weight?"

On Wednesday, the celebrity fitness guru clarified her comments to Daily Pop, saying there are "two separate narratives" happening.

"One, love yourself no matter what 100 percent, always advocated that," she said. "...everybody should be included, valued, they're worthy, they're beautiful. And, only from this place, can you be healthier, physically, emotionally in your relationships, with your work."

She added: "We cannot deny the inevitable fact that being overweight leads to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and these things kill people."

Michaels said she understood the matter from both sides because she was once an overweight teenager.

She posted an Instagram photo of her younger self, captioning the image: "Here's me at 5'0 tall and 175 lbs. If I can do it - anyone can. Share your story..."

Damon Dash has filed a lawsuit against WE tv for allegedly breaking a promise not to let his son Damon "Boogie" Dash drink alcohol on reality series Growing Up Hip Hop.

According to TMZ, the music mogul filed papers claiming the network required 28-year-old Boogie to drink in order to boost TV ratings.

Dash argues that WE tv's actions went directly against a verbal agreement they allegedly made with the record executive not to give Boogie anything to drink.

In court papers, the 48-year-old Roc-A-Fella co-founder claimed WE tv caused his family "emotional distress" by encouraging Boogie to get drunk.

Additionally, Dash alleges that WE tv owes him money. According to the music mogul, a court order is in place directing the network to make payments directly to his creditors. Dash owes millions to creditors including his baby mamas and his company, Poppington.

The lawsuit is the latest in a string of legal woes for Dash, who was accused of sexual battery by hip-hop photographer Monique Bunn, who filed a $50 million lawsuit against the mogul and his fiancée Raquel Horn in December.

Yung Joc was clowned over the weekend when he was caught on video driving for a ride-share service. Joc went viral when Uber customers recorded him picking them up.

"You sound like somebody I know," one of the passengers said. Joc explained that he was driving for "a month or so" because "it was an easy way to get some easy money right here downtown."

Many assumed this was yet another stunt by Joc to go "viral." He doesn't need the few hundred dollars.

The 36-year-old business owner is a cast member on Love & Hip-Hop, as well as a co-host on a popular radio station here in Atlanta. All of which provides him with a tidy income to support his many children.

Behind the scenes, Joc caught flack for pulling more stunts in order to "go viral" on social media.

He isn't the only one. Many washed up celebrities hire PR firms to come up with stunts that have a high probability of going viral and increasing more "engagement" on social media.

As an industry insider explained to me: "Going viral is this generation's currency."

But according to Joc, his Uber driving gig is no stunt for fleeting viral fame.

The former rapper told TMZ that he has been part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta for years, and he is leading by example.

"You show them what humility is and you're not too big to do the right thing by making an honest living," he said. "I think that's why a lot of kids - and even adults - go astray. Because they're too ashamed, they're too prideful to do something."

He said one of the perks of "going viral" was the support he received from people like OG rapper Snoop Dogg.

"The most phenomenal part of this experience from this going viral is the amount of support," he said. "I just realize that maybe people are beginning to be a little more mature."

Speaking of maturity, it will be interesting to see what stunt Joc comes up with next.

Antonio Brown's long-suffering baby mama Chelsie Kyriss responded to Internet users who ask why she continues to go back to him.

Chelsie shares three children with the former New England Patriots wide receiver. Earlier this week, Brown went ballistic on Chelsie, hurling profanity at her in front of their children and a small army of police officers who were called to his Hollywood, Florida home.

Chelsie was there to pick up their sons. But she made the mistake of trying to drive off in her Bentley - a gift from Brown which he took back.

Brown live-streamed his meltdown, as police escorted Chelsie and the children to patrol cars.

According to Snitch, Brown texted Chelsie and begged her for sex prior to her arrival. She had every reason to believe he would be lucid and stable when she arrived, but she was wrong.

In one text message he wrote "U going to be back here we going to recommit for our boys u hear me then I want to feel your love no more basic I miss u."

Chelsie captioned the text: "This is what happens when you refuse to go back!"

Abby Huntsman (left) announced her departure from The View talk show on Monday, Jan. 13. She said she quit the show to join her father's gubernatorial campaign.

But a source tells Page Six the real reason for her abrupt departure was the simmering tension between Meghan McCain (right) and her fellow co-hosts.

"It's an unhealthy environment - just the way that things are handled during shows and how people deal with each other," said the insider. "It's intense."

The source continued: "Abby made an issue [to executives] about the overall environment. She's felt for a while that things had to change. ABC treated Abby like s--t, but everyone on the show gets treated like --t. She was smart enough to do something about it."

The insider said longtime co-host Whoopi Goldberg has also complained about the negative environment created by McCain on the set.

A second insider said that Huntsman described the environment as "toxic."

According to Page Six, Huntsman joined The View a year ago, around the same time McCain was hired.

But Huntsman made her decision to quit in December after seeing how McCain treated the other co-hosts.

"None of the ladies talk to Meghan now," a source told Page Six. "Abby was the last woman standing. It's bad. Meghan's so rude."

The Hollywood Police Department in Hollywood, Florida severed ties with former NFL player Antonio Brown after he disrespected their officers during a public meltdown.

The 31-year-old former NFL wide receiver live-streamed himself shouting expletives at his baby mama - in front of their minor kids and a small army of police officers.

The Hollywood police were called to Brown's home following a dispute with his baby mama on Dec. 14.

"Get the f**k out of here you b**ch a** pu**ies!" he yelled, as police escorted Chelsie Kyriss and their children to patrol cars.

The department was so outraged over Brown's treatment of their officers that they returned his donation for their Police Athletic League field.

"While officers were on the scene, Mr. Brown treated them with disrespect and disdain," said a police spokesperson.

"We made the decision to sever ties between Mr. Brown and the Hollywood Police Athletic League. We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown."

According to TMZ, cops returned Brown's donation for their 7-on-7 league and they banned him from working out on their field ever again.

"We will not take money from a donor that we cannot have our youth be proud of or represent our organization."

If Brown sets foot on the PAL field again, he could be arrested for trespassing.

Rapper Trick Daddy is furious at the Internet for making fun of his mugshot taken after his arrest for DUI and cocaine possession charges in Miami on Saturday.

Social media users made countless memes of the rapper's mugshot which went viral on Saturday. The jokes were endless as social media clowned the 45-year-old rapper, whose real name is Maurice Young.

Young took to Facebook to say he was not pleased with all the jokes at his expense. Young's appearance is caused by his lupus diagnosis.

"Let me get this right .. you lie on me .. make fun of the fact that I have lupus ... and all this just for likes .. thank god im strong .. everything is funny until it hits close to home .. my feelings don't hurt easily I'm too worried about waking up tomorrow."

Young bonded out of jail on Sunday. He was spotted later that day behind the counter at his Sunday's Eatery soul food restaurant at 2675 NW 207th in Miami Gardens.

Trick Daddy, a native of Miami's Liberty City neighborhood, is best known for his hit song "Naan Nigga", featuring Miami rapper Trina (1998). They currently appear in the VH1 reality TV series Love and Hip-Hop: Miami.

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has inspired at least one high school dropout to pursue a career in politics.

Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, is a former bartender who was elected to Congress because voters stayed home in New York's 14th congressional district in 2018.

AOC's surprising rise in politics garnered the attention of rapper Cardi B, a former stripper who is inspired to go back to school to run for Congress.

"I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress," Cardi tweeted on Sunday.

"I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table."

Twitter's response to Cardi's post was a mix of ridicule and disbelief. Some Twitter users believe no amount of schooling can help Cardi achieve her political goals.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence appeared on The Breakfast Club to promote the third installment of their Bad Boys movie franchise, titled Bad Boys For Life.

Smith started stuttering when he was asked to speak on his wife Jada Pinkett Smith's brief love affair with rapper Tupac Shakur.

"Uh, oh, f**k yeah! Oh my God!" Smith said emphatically. He went on to share that he felt intimidated and awkward around Tupac, who died in 1996. "I could never interact with 'Pac," he explained.

Smith, 51, is convinced that Tupac never sampled Jada's goodies, but that's not what she's telling friends.

Kenya Moore is back at it again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star takes great pride in her long, glorious hair weave which she claims as her own hair. At age 48, Kenya is an inspiration to young women who believe they, too, will have waist length hair when they approach 50.

Unfortunately, things are never as they seem. Kenya, 48, took offense to fellow cast member Marlo Hampton saying she wears wigs.

In response, Kenya posted a video in which she claims all of that lustrous hair is growing out of her scalp.

Granted, her stylist did a great job installing her wig unit, but it's very difficult to blend thin hair into a lacefront and pass it off as your own.

Here is an image from the video that clearly shows the line where Kenya's thin hair is blended into the wig. Look at the hair above her ear.

If you still can't see it, here is another image where you can see the difference in texture and color of her real hair verses the wig. I lightened the thin, wispy hair over her ear so you can see the change in texture at the demarcation line.

Now watch the video again. Notice that her stylist parts her hair at that exact line above her ear where the wig begins.

Then Kenya pulls her hair back from her face to reveal her jagged edges and the thinning hair over her ear.

No 48-year-old woman has thick, jet black hair down to her butt. Even Stevie Wonder can see that's a wig.

Do better Kenya.

Gwyneth Paltrow made a boatload of money when her entire inventory of vagina-scented candles sold out within minutes on her Goop website.

Paltrow, who is known for selling bizarre items on Goop, packaged the candles in jars with B&W labels that read, "This Smells Like My Vagina."

The actress describes her vaginal odor as "a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent."

Shoppers took her word for it. They snapped up the candles at a whopping $75 each! The 10.5 ounce vagina candles sold out quickly, according to The Blast.

Paltrow says the candles are made with "a mixture of cedar, geranium, citrusy bergamot, Damask Rose and ambrette seed that puts owners and their guests in the mind state of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth."

Sabrina says Richard abandoned his family and ran off with another woman. The other woman later became his wife and bore him 2 girls - Venus and Serena - who went on to become tennis superstars.

"My mom told me later that he's never coming back," Sabrina said. "We went from having everything to nothing. The best dresses, parties, we'd go places. Now there was no new shoes or clothes. He's not a dad. He was just a sperm donor."

Despite growing up estranged from her famous siblings, Sabrina said she holds no animosity towards them and she hopes one day they can all meet and put the past behind them.

Richard, 77, is pictured at a tennis match with his ex-wife Lakeisha Graham in 2012. She is the mother of his youngest child, Dylan.

Sabrina said she knows of between 15 and 19 siblings that Richard fathered. She believes there may be more siblings in the wild.

"I know there's more siblings, I was told between fifteen and nineteen all over the place, from LA to Louisiana," she told SunOnline.

"My mom always argued with my dad about his affairs, he was a serial cheat. I remember that was always the main thing they'd talk about."

After suffering abuse at the hands of her mother for years, Sabrina left home at age 20 or 21 and slept in her car for six months.

"Somehow I got hold of my dad through a relative and asked for $1,000 to pay some of the college bill at Hope Christian University," she told SunOnline.

"He said he'd only give me the money as a loan. That's when I knew he was an a**hole."

Sabrina, who has two sons, says she met her famous siblings for the first time at Knott's Berry Farm, a theme park in California. The sisters were there with Richard.

"I saw him and thought: 'Hey, that looks like my dad."

"I went over, we exchanged hellos, and we hung out for an hour, that was it. He gave me his number and told me to call him, then guess what? The number he gave me was out of order."

Meghan Markle signed a lucrative voiceover deal with Disney before she and husband Prince Harry quit the Royal Family.

According to London's Daily Mail, Meghan signed the voiceover deal with Disney Films in return for a small donation to an elephant charity.

The news comes as Meghan and Harry announced their decision to "step back" from their royal duties and "transition" to a "progressive" new lifestyle in Toronto, Canada - far away from the British media.

The Daily Mail reports that the royal family accused the couple of already agreeing to a deal with Disney films - which is a no-no for senior royals.

The Duchess of Sussex recorded the voiceover during her extended 7-week holiday break with Harry and their 8-month-old son Archie on Vancouver Island, BC.

Meghan, 38, fled back to her son who remained with a nanny on Vancouver Island, leaving Prince Harry in London to put out the flames she set.

Harry, 35, is expected to join his family in Canada this weekend. But Harry's friends worry that he is right back where he started before he married Meghan in May 2018.

He flew long transatlantic trips to secretly woo the Suits actress in Toronto from 2016-2018.

Friends say the whole point of Harry marrying Meghan was so she would move to London to be with him.

Meghan's friends aren't surprised that she broke and ran back to Toronto before her 2-year wedding anniversary. They say that was her plan all along. She never intended to stay in London.

One friend described Meghan as a narcissist who always has to be the center of attention.

"I saw this coming - it was just a matter of time," the Daily Mail quoted one of Meghan's closest confidantes.

"With Meghan, it has always been her way or the highway. She is always the center of the relationship, regardless of Harry's title. She wants to be in the limelight, but under her terms."

She added: "Meghan likes to flee when things get heavy, and observe form afar what she has done. I'm sure she wanted to get back to her inner circle (in Canada)."

Friends predict Harry will divorce Meghan once he realizes she used him to elevate her social status in Toronto's high society.

Meghan is in for a big surprise when she finds out Archie is legally in the custody of the monarchy, and she has no legal claim to her son if Harry divorces her.

Rapper Trick Daddy was arrested on DUI and cocaine possession charges in Miami, Florida early Saturday.

According to an arrest affidavit, Trick Daddy, 45, was taken into custody by a Miami-Dade police officer responding to a report of a driver running red lights and hitting street signs in a Range Rover.

When the officer approached the driver's side, he noticed the driver "appeared to be asleep behind the wheel."

The cop awakened the driver by banging on the car window. The man, identified by his driver's license as Maurice Samuel Young, told the officer he had left a nightclub in Miami Gardens.

The affidavit stated that Young told the officer he had about five drinks before he left the club and that he was dropping someone off before heading home.

The cop noted Young's slurred speech, bloodshot, watery eyes, and a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.

Young failed a field sobriety test, which he did not complete, according to the affidavit.

A search of his belongings at the Hammocks District Station on 142nd Avenue yielded a small amount of cocaine inside a dollar bill.

The "Take It to da House" rapper was also wanted on an outstanding warrant for driving under the influence.

He was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional center around 7:30 a.m. Saturday, according to Yahoo News.

His bond was set at $5,000 on the cocaine possession charge and $1,000 on the DUI charge, according to Yahoo News.

Trick Daddy, a native of Miami's Liberty City neighborhood, is best known for his hit song "Naan Nigga", featuring Miami rapper Trina (1998). They currently appear in the VH1 reality TV series Love and Hip-Hop: Miami.

Loni Love sparked a fierce debate on social media when she said all Black men cheat due to America's history of slavery that separated families.

During Friday's episode of The Real, co-host Loni Love said Black men - particularly men with money and power - cheat with no shame because slavery broke up families.

Loni, who is dating a Caucasian man, said Black men "really don't know how to have true, faithful relationships. They think because they have money, because they have power, that they can treat women any kind of way."

She added: "Money and power does not mean you do whatever you want to do."

Loni theorizes that Black men cheat with reckless abandon because "we are still dealing with slavery and we are descendants of slavery and because our families were broken up."

New co-host Amanda Seales agreed: "It's slavery; welfare reform in the '60s and '70s..."

And co-host Adrienne Bailon said privileged Black men work harder to keep their money and power, and their hustle affects their relationships with their wives.

Hot 97 host Ebro had something to say about Loni's comments that all Black men cheat due to the history of slavery.

"Imagine that pain when you're trying to be honorable and you're doing everything right and your family doesn't believe in you.

"And Black women continue to get on these platforms talking about all men do this and all Black men do that and all Black men have these problems. And as a Black man, you're working on those problems, and you're looking at your people - these suppose to be your people going out in public thrashing you all the time."

He added: "It's not just Black men out here cheating!"
