It’s been a rough few weeks for Wendy Williams. Just days after fainting on live TV, the talk show host joined a growing list of women coming out with their personal stories of sexual harassment at the hands of famous and powerful men.
When Williams took the stage of her show to talk about the recent revelations that veteran news journalist Charlie Rose is a habitual sexual harasser, Williams revealed that she too was groped by a guest on her show but refrained from naming names even though she says “He’s not relevant anymore.”
Recalling the incident Williams said the groping happened in plain sight saying “You all saw it and didn’t say a word.”
“I hug my guests; he hugged me but lays in my breasts inappropriately and I didn’t know what to do because I am brand new on TV, whereas now, I would definitely push somebody through a glass coffee table,” she recalled.
She then laid out what happened next saying, “After the hug, he looked up at me, he goes, ‘Oh! You’re not Oprah!’”
That last little piece of information was enough to jog the memory of some eagle-eyed fans with elephant memories who have since ID’d the culprit as none other than washed up comedian, Gilbert Gottfried. Can’t say we saw that one coming.
Gottfried has taken the Jeff Sessions/Roy Moore route on the accusations and claims that he can’t recall something that happened a long time ago.
However, the Internet never forgets.
