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?

How do we bring an end to the environmental “blah, blah, blah”?

COP26 needs a very different approach to climate change discussions if we are going to talk our way to success

When I was a young man playing rugby, I was in an environment where I felt (rightly or wrongly) that it was only socially acceptable to be straight, so I pretended! It may not have been particularly healthy for my personal wellbeing, but it didn't take long to learn what to say and how to behave in order to convince those around me. And it worked pretty well! So much so that when one of my teammates later met my boyfriend at a wedding, he famously said to the bride and groom that I "couldn't possibly be gay because he played rugby with me for years!"

So why is this little anecdote so relevant to COP 26? Well… because if a shy, introverted gay boy can pull off being straight, then it is not exactly hard for politicians with their armies of speech writers, advisers and spin doctors to pretend to be green. And that is what many of them are doing!

The 7 surprising perks of having kids

Being a parent can be rough, but the fact that I love them is a given.

Being a parent can be rough.

This week alone, I've faced homework deadlines, a sickness bug, multiple tantrums, a nasty smash on the head (their head, not mine). I've been yelled at for breaking character when I was supposed to be Wolverine, and I've read The Gruffalo about a thousand times (feels like).
