“I don’t want anybody over here. I think condoms are something random. You know, what about the sweat and the shower?
“He ended up saying, ‘You know what? Hold out. It’ll be over soon.’”
Wendy also asked the doctor about her concerns over whether virus could be transferred by clothing.
She went on: “I asked him about, ‘Do clothes carry the [coronavirus]?’
“I get in the elevator, I press with my elbow, I pull my sleeve down and press with the material.
“Then, as far as clothing, he said, ‘Yes! The germs last for two hours.’
Wendy Williams’ Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Year
2020 has not been a good year for Wendy Williams. In the short time since the new year has started, Williams has come under fire three times for controversial things she said on her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show. First she made fun of Joker star Joaquin Phoenix’s cleft palate scar, then she said gay men shouldn’t wear “women’s clothes,” and the one she has yet to apologize for, a gruesome joke about Price Is Right host Drew Carey’s ex-fiance’s murder.
Wendy William’s Shock Jock Past On Full Display
Williams is no stranger to controversy. She got her start as a radio “shock jockette,” with all the trappings that came with it. Williams’ forte was outrageous, politically incorrect opinions, often at the expense of the celebrities she covered. When she first joined the daytime talk show circuit, it seemed like Williams had toned down her old “shock jock” tendencies. Those old habits are making a comeback in 2020, and audiences aren’t as charmed as they once were by them.
First came Williams’ comments about Phoenix’s facial scar. On her show, she pulled at her lip, obviously mocking the actor. This mean affectation didn’t go unnoticed and many called on the talk show host to apologize, including Cher, who tweeted images of herself visiting children with cleft palates. There’s even a petition to have Williams fired for her comment. Williams later apologized on Twitter and announced that the show would donate to two charities that helped those afflicted with the condition.
On Galentine’s Day, the unofficial holiday the day before Valentine’s Day in which women celebrate their friendships, Williams incited more outrage. She went on a tangent about why men shouldn’t celebrate the informal holiday before zeroing in on gay men specifically. “And stop wearing our skirts and our heels,” she demanded. “Just sayin’ girls, what do we have for ourselves?” Though the audience applauded, the backlash online was swift and severe and once again, Williams issued an apology through social media.
Wendy Williams denies farting on live TV as she’s dubbed ‘Windy’ in ‘Fartgate’
The 55-year-old is not often shy at discussing topics on her talk show and so she wasted no time in addressing the moment that has been dubbed ‘Fartgate’ and left her being called ‘Windy’ Williams.
It has been reported that Wendy cracked one out when she shifted in her seat during one of last week’s episodes with her microphone allegedly picking up the noise.
Wendy was quick to speak out, saying: “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?”
