Wendy Williams Addressed ‘Fartgate’ … A Little Too Much

Published

on

“The lady doth protest too much,” or whatever Shakespeare said…

On Thursday daytime television host Wendy Williams addressed “Fartgate,” and many think she went overboard in her denial.

The controversy began when Williams was accused of passing gas on her show. Delivering her daily “Hot Topics” segment, viewers noticed a sound familiar to us all: the sound of a fart. The clip went viral with internet dubbing the moment “Fartgate.” 

On her show Wendy, Williams, 55, finally spoke on the whole debacle. In an outrageous and bizarre claim, she told the audience she barely farts at all saying, “gas gets released several different ways, and mine is benching because all I do is talk.” She then went on to play the infamous clip and explain she leaned over to release pressure on her spine and that she would have laughed if she really did pass gas as she is accused of doing. “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 throw it away. It’d probably be soiled beyond soiled-tivity.” 

As if that wasn’t enough, the talk show host then brought out a crewmember to explain the source of the flatulent sound: preparation for the upcoming science-related segment on that day’s show. The entirety of her strange explanation is below (about 10 and a half minutes into the video).

Now Wendy, we all fart, it’s human nature, but your response was way too much to convince us that you didn’t rip one on air. It wouldn’t have been a problem if you did. Remember a few years back when Whoopi Goldberg loudly cleared the air on her show The View? She owned it saying, “excuse me, I think I just blew a little frog outta there!” And we all loved her more for it.

Have you heard the fart in question? If you haven’t we have it for you here.

Frank Ocean’s brother, Ryan Breaux, 18, was in a fatal car crash in Thousand Oaks, California this Sunday. His identity has not yet been confirmed by the medical examiner, but friends on the scene identified him to ABC7 News. An outpouring of support and well-wishes followed. (As well as the usual insensitivity.)

We here at King Of Reads want to wish Frank Ocean and his family well in this time of grieving. So much is happening in this world, we only hope they can find a moment of peace in the near future.

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

mm

Published

on

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen
