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.

Amanda Seales is Not the One

Earlier this week, the ladies of “The Real” celebrated their 1,000th episode. Hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Amanda Seales happily celebrated the momentous occasion with laughs, tears and a bottle of champagne. 

The celebration continued as the ladies were interviewed by “Extra” correspondent Jenn Lahmers.

During the interview, things became a bit awkward when Lahmers referred to Seales as the “newbie” and began to insinuate that she and fellow co-host, Mai, had “butted heads on a couple of topics.”

Immediately, Seales cut her off saying, “Have we? Stop!” She followed that up by stating emphatically, “That’s’ not the territory we’re coming from. We’re not butting heads. And I think it’s very, very important, especially at a table of diverse women to very clearly delineate the difference between having a difference of opinion than butting heads. You’ll know when I’m butting heads because when I butt heads, there’s only going to be one head standing and as you can see, we’re still here,” as she embraced Mai.

Mai and Seales followed up the quick read with a toast as the other ladies chimed in, fully supporting everything Seales had expressed. 

Earlier today, Seales posted a snippet of the exchange via her personal Instagram page with the caption, “To Gather.

She tried it. Don’t come for me unless I send for you. I am not hostile. I’m passionate. Happy Black History Month ❤️✊🏽”

Seales made her debut as the newest co-host of “The Real” on January 6th.

Rolling Stone magazine hit us with a trifecta of talent for their second annual, Women Shaping the Future issue, out March 3. 

On the cover, sweet-faced Normani, brash in your face Megan Thee Stallion and innocent, doe-eyed SZA are each clad in leather ensembles that match the unique persona’s we’ve come to love. 

SZA burst onto the scene in 2014 with her ep debut, Z. Since then, the singer/songwriter has been featured on chart-topping songs with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Rihanna. 

Megan Thee Stallion grabbed our attention with her summer anthem, Hot Girl Summer, and has been giving us “Hot Girl” vibes all year long with no signs of slowing down.

As for Normani, formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, she’s given us plenty to celebrate as she embarked on her solo career. Just last year, the sultry vocalist collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris and released her first single, Motivation, along with a viral music video.

As we approach Women’s History Month, we’re excited to learn more about how each of these ladies plans to shape the future. 

According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to revealing, in-depth profiles of these three artists, the issue also contains exclusive interviews with Regina King, Stacey Abrams, Natasha Lyonne, and other prominent women in entertainment, sports, politics, and culture.”
