Wendy Williams has decided to reveal her own brush with sexual assault at the office.

Wendy tends to share a lot about herself while spilling the tea on other celebrities, and this week was no different. While speaking on the truly cringeworthy sexual misconduct allegations against journalist Charlie Rose, she revealed that she had also been the victim of sexual assault. And there were witnesses!

“My worst guest? I’m not going to name, but I can tell you this: It had to do with some groping,” Wendy claimed. “You all saw it and didn’t say a word. And I felt it and I didn’t say a word. My staff saw it and that guest will never be here anymore.”

According to Wendy, she was groped by a male comedian during season 2 or 3 of her show, when she was still trying to gain a foothold in daytime talk.

“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,” she said. “Where as now, I would definitely push somebody through a glass coffee table.”

Imitating the comedian, she recalled, “After the hug, he looked up at me, he goes, ‘Oh! You’re not Oprah!’”

Wendy’s watchers immediately decided to fan out upon hearing this news, using all of the clues to find the alleged culprit. Their investigation lead them directly to Gilbert Gottfried.
