During a January 17 show, a clip from the show appeared to exhibit the daytime TV host passing gas during her Hot Topics segment.

“I want to talk to you about something very, very serious. I’ve been going through this for a moment and I would like to have a private conversation with you, okay?” she said before playing the footage.

“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’m 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 defended herself.

“I would have definitely been laughing, because farts are always funny. You know a girl like me would have been laughing at that!” she went on laugh.

“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.”

Stagehand John Anderson explained they were setting up for a segment with scientist and 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.
