The 'Wendy Williams Show' host insists she didn't fart and her stagehand backs up her claim by saying the sound happened when they filled a fish tank for guest Dr. Kate Biberdorf.

AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams has hit back at claims she farted on live television, insisting she "would have been laughing" if she had.

"The Wendy Williams Show" host went viral after fans became convinced they spotted the star passing gas while presenting her Hot Topics segment on January 17, 2020.

However, on Thursday's January 23 episode, Wendy addressed the speculation, playing the footage and telling the audience, "I have never farted once on this show. As a matter of fact, I barely fart, you know why? Because gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching, because all I do is talk."

"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 don't have the back. I'm not trying to get the back. I like to release my hips and lean, you know what I'm saying?... I've been doing this for 11 years on this show!"

She also told the crowd that had she let one rip, she wouldn't have been able to conceal her amusement.

"I would have definitely been laughing because farts are always funny. You know a girl like me would have been laughing at that!" she giggled.

The star also made reference to the noise fans heard in the clip, adding, "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 thrown it away. It'd probably be soiled beyond soiled-tivity."

Stagehand John Anderson also weighed in on the controversy, explaining that the sound had happened while he and his team were setting up for a segment with scientific author Dr. Kate Biberdorf.

"We were filling up a fish tank backstage and we didn't have the proper hose. The air was just coming out and it was sputtering like someone was farting. Okay? So that's what it was. It wasn't Wendy!" he said.
