Some would call it a classic case of karma. Others may call it the by-product of reaching a particular age.

Whatever it is, television host Wendy Williams was divulging some gossip about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's recent divorce, when her body appeared to have a mind of its own. Williams allegedly simultaneously belched and farted on her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, which seemingly could be heard on the microphone.


Williams was in the process of speaking about Kim Kardashian, alleging she probably had five different boyfriends after splitting with Kanye West.

That's an interesting thing to insinuate.

Past reports made claims about Kardashian seeing Van Jones, especially during their time working to aid criminal reform initiatives. However, nothing ever happened with that gossip, and the speculation ceased.

I remember the times I would laugh so hard as a child the same thing happened to me, although it wasn't a karma thing. At least, I hope not. It was my birthday, and my grandma brought me some cupcakes to give to my classmates.

While I was laughing, and having a good time, the faintest sound of a fart escaped, and I immediately started crying in embarrassment when someone screamed, "eww." Anyways, I got over it and prevailed!

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Williams has been accused of flatulence on television. Last year, she appeared to lightly lift her leg before a slight sound escaped from the chair.

Whether this is a "karma" thing or not, at least Williams handled it in a way that wasn't aggressive just because she was embarrassed. What are your thoughts about Wendy Williams' seemingly embarrassing moment on television?

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
