Wendy Williams does not have bubble guts, Okay? The 55-year-old talk show host denied reports that she farted on live television, insisting she would have laughed out loud if she had.
A clip of The Wendy Williams Show host went viral after fans were convinced they heard the TV guru passing gas while presenting her Hot Topics segment on January 17.
On Thursday's episode, Wendy addressed the speculation, saying she did not fart on live television.
She played the footage and told her audience: "I have never farted once on this show. As a matter of fact, I barely fart, you know why? Because gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching, because all I do is talk."
Wendy also explained why she prefers leaning on her chair armrest.
"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 (straight up) all the time, it's heavy on my spine... I like to release my hips and lean, you know what I'm saying?... I've been doing this for 11 years on this show!"
She also told the audience that if she had broke wind on air, she wouldn't have been able to conceal her laughter.
"I would have definitely been laughing because farts are always funny. You know a girl like me would have been laughing at that!” she giggled.
The star also made reference to the wet noise heard in the video clip, adding, "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 Show producer Norman Baker and stagehand John Anderson explained that the sound happened while setting up for a segment with scientific author Dr. Kate Biberdorf.
"We were filling up a fish tank backstage and we didn't have the proper hose. The air was just coming out and it was sputtering like someone was farting. Okay? So that's what it was. It wasn't Wendy!" Anderson confirmed.
