Okay, who lied to Wendy Williams?
The American talk show host has made a shocking claim that has left South Africans scratching their heads.
During her ‘Wendy’s After Show’ segment, the 56-year-old claimed she had her very own Mzansi holiday.
According to the media personality, April 10 is Wendy Williams Day.
“Do you know what April 10th is, though? Really, I just found out myself. April 10 is Wendy Williams Day in South Africa,” Wendy proudly announced.

So, technically, April 10 is Wendy Williams Day and that explains why the star is claiming holidays.
Staying with Wendy…
Wendy is also making headlines for simultaneously burping and farting during a recent episode. Yes, she did that!
“Unreal Burp Fart combo from Wendy Williams,” one Twitter user commented.
Another user added: “I’m pretty sure Wendy Williams let out BOTH a burp and a fart. You be the judge. Either way I’m here for it.”
Wendy brushed off the moment.
“I apologise, I apologise,” she said before laughing.
If Wendy passing gas is a big story on Page Six and BuzzFeed then she definitely deserves her own holiday!
