Wendy Williams goes into the hot seat

Over the years there have been many reports surrounding Williams, but the one that tickled fans is the one people call “FartGate”. During one of the episodes, some viewers claimed to have heard a strange noise which they attributed to the TV host. When Williams was a guest on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show, he couldn’t help but ask his colleague about the incident.

“It’s so disgusting. Like, people are so weird about it. I didn’t pass gas, ”Williams said on Andy Cohen Live. “Look, we’re coming back in September, Andy, and we’re going to be 100% enlightened.

Cohen was confused about Williams talking about his fall talk show return and asked, “What has this to do with the alleged gas pass?” The Day Queen admitted that she “just wanted to deviate” from the conversation because she didn’t want to talk about it. However, Cohen brought him back to the subject and gave him praise for “appearing before a bodily function.”

“I burp all the time, right there in front of the camera, sneezing and things like that,” Williams added. “But you know what? That’s what people do when they have a regular conversation.

Wendy Williams had previously touched on ‘FartGate’

The urban legend of “FartGate” had been going on for quite some time and it was not the first time she had addressed the incident. In January 2020, Williams opened up about the moment during her “Hot Topics” segment on the show. She started off by saying that she does “a lot” on the show, but farting in front of the camera wasn’t something she did to get attention.

Williams then demonstrated that when she bends down to take a sip of her tea, it’s not to release air. The host said she leaned over because it was comfortable for her.

“If I move my wig, or burp or rub my teeth, I’ve been doing it for 11 years on this show,” she added. “I’ve never farted once on this show. In fact, I barely fart because the gas is released in several different ways and mine burps because all I do is talk.

What was that noise fans attributed to Wendy Williams’ fart?

Williams then broadcast the moment she allegedly passed gas for audiences to watch. The TV personality said if that sound was any indication of a fart, she would have left a mark on her seat and had to change her clothes. To further explain the situation, producer Norman Baker said that during the show he kept hearing an unexplained whistle.

John Anderson of the production also came out to say that in the same episode there was a chemist who was booked as a guest on the show. To prepare for the segment, they filled a tank and didn’t have a proper hose which then sounded like someone was farting.
