    Wendy Williams Finally Addressed "Fartgate" On Her Show, And I'm Cackling Like A Hyena

    "I have never done that once on the show. In fact, I barely fart."

    Last week, Wendy watchers swore they heard Wendy Williams fart live on her show, and the reactions were hilarious:

    Wendy Williams really farted on live TV. I am unable.

    I mean....

    WENDY FARTED!!! Sounded like a REAL Hot Topic...💨🤢 @WendyWilliams #Windywilliams

    ...seriously:

    Tha audience after Wendy Williams let out the mean wet fart on live tv

    Now Wendy is finally responding to "Fartgate," and she's ready to clear the air...pun intended 😂.

    Fox

    On Thursday, Wendy addressed the rumors during her "Hot Topics" segment, saying, "You know, I do a lot here on this show ... I shift my weight or I belch or rub my teeth ... [but] I have never done that once on the show."

    Fox

    "In fact, I barely fart," Wendy declared.

    "Gas gets released all different ways, and all I do is belch because all I do is talk," the talk show host explained.

    Wendy told her audience that if she DID fart, they would have known because "by the sound of that fart, I would've had to go change my costume; I would have left a mark in my seat."

    Wendy had a theory that someone "superimposed" the fart sound over the video, but her senior producer Norman said he heard "hissing" noises throughout the show.

    Wendy then called on her "trusty" John Anderson, who I'm guessing is someone who works in the sound department, and he said Fartgate could be blamed on a science experiment gone wrong.

    ICYMI: Kate the Chemist stopped by that day.

    John explained:

    "Air was just coming out and it was sputtering like someone was farting. So that's what it was. It wasn't Wendy," he said.

    Fox

    So there you have it. Wendy Williams has denied all allegations, and she even called in witnesses to back up her claims.

    Do you think Wendy is blowing smoke or telling the truth about Fartgate? Let me know in the comments.
