Wendy Williams apparently caused a big stink when she let out a loud, wet fart while simultaneously burping during Monday's "Wendy Show" episode.

The incidence of flatulence occurred while Wendy, 56, was in the middle of discussing Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's divorce drama.

"I apologize, I apologize," she said quickly while her audience/crew laughed out loud.

An insider claimed Wendy cleaned up and changed into another black dress during a commercial break. Apparently, Wendy keeps identical outfits in her dressing room in case of an accident.

But Wendy's team denied she changed her dress or cleaned up during a commercial break.

People with Graves' disease (hyperactive thyroid) tend to have frequent loose stools or diarrhea. Accidents do happen.

If you recall last January (2020), Wendy and her team vigorously denied reports that she passed gas on national television.

"I barely fart," she said at the time. "You know why? Because gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching, because all I do is talk."

She continued:

"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 would have thrown it away. It'd probably be soiled beyond soiled-tivity."

Wendy also explained that she leans on her chair armrest because sitting straight up is hard on her spine.

If you recall, Wendy's producer Norman Baker and stagehand John Anderson explained that the wet farting sound occurred when they were filling a fish tank backstage for a science experiment.

This time there were no such denials from Wendy or her crew, as she quickly apologized live on air when she broke wind and burped.

What causes excessive flatulence?

Flatulence is the accumulation of gasses in the colon and rectum. 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.

Wendy had been taping episodes of her popular talk show from her Manhattan condo after laying off her staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 55-year-old will be taking a break from her self-titled program while struggling with issues such as fatigue, a spokesperson for The Wendy Williams Show said in a statement.

"Wendy has been dealing with symptoms from her Graves' disease, which is causing fatigue," the representative said. "In consultation with her doctor and as a precautionary measure, she will be taking some time off as she continues to receive treatment. We look forward to welcoming Wendy back soon and continuing the Wendy@Home shows."

It's not as yet clear when Williams will be returning to the talk show.

Williams has suffered from Graves' disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid, since 1999. It is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.

The disease caused her legs to swell, making it difficult for her to walk. She took a six-week hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show in 2019 after fracturing her shoulder.

After returning to the show in March that year, Wendy told her viewers that she had been focusing on her sobriety after spending time at a live-in alcohol rehab facility.
