Ok, so here's the story: Jimmy Fallon hosted an Oscar viewing party for his famous friends, and while there, Andy Cohen decided that Cameron Diaz had pooped her pants. Which is yes, a completely insane assumption to make about someone.

The actress talked about the misunderstanding on The Tonight Show in early April (hilariously saying "of course I would not crap my pants"), and now Andy is here to tell his side of the story. 

"I smell this smell, and I was like 'Oh my god, Cameron Diaz passed gas,'" he explained to Jimmy Fallon. "Charlie's Angles was all about, like, women empowerment and stuff, and I was like, 'that's cool, like, girls can pass gas. That's what it's all about! Yeah man, let it rip, Cameron!'"

But wait, there's more: "All of a sudden [the smell] gets much worse," Andy continued. "And I was like, 'Oh my god, Cameron Diaz pooped her pants is what happened.'"

Sounds reasonable. Also, at this point we should mention that the smell was, in fact, coming from Andy himself, who had unintentionally stepped in dog poo.

Meanwhile, here's Cameron's POV in case you're interested. Which you definitely should be.

This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
