Wendy Williams Breaks Her Silence After Being Accused Of Farting On Air

Look, the wildest news story of the year was only three days ago and yet I am STILL reeling from the drama of it all!

In case you missed it, Wendy Williams went totally viral a few days ago for allegedly farting on her show.

The video is literally BONKERS.

However now, Wendy is claiming she didn't fart AT ALL!

She started Thursday's show off in a serious tone: "I've been going through this now for a moment. I would like to have a private] conversation with you, okay?"

"Fartgate" she exclaims as the words "FARTGATE" appeared on the screen behind her.

"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. I've been doing this for 11 years on this show," she explained.

"I have never farted once on this show," she continued. "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."

"By the sound of that fart, I would have had to go change my costume, I would have left a mark in the seat," she joked.

"I wouldn't even save the costume, I'd throw it away. It'd be soiled beyond soiled-tivity."

The Wendy Williams Show Gaffer John Anderson came out to explain the reason for the noise: "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!" he claimed.
