Whitney Cummings scored prime real estate this weekend on the interview page of The New York Times Magazine. As a Whitney fan and someone who is really excited for “Whitney” and “2 Broke Girls,” her two new shows, I was super-psyched. Then I read the rude, douchey, and sexist questions by interviewer Andrew Goldman and wanted to throw a hot latte at him. Instead of asking about comedy or acting, Goldman nailed her with at least three questions about being attractive and the perception that pretty girls must sleep their way to the top:
AG: On those Comedy Central roasts, your fellow comedians liked to joke about how you slept your way to fame. How accurate is that criticism?

Last week, in the wake of Scarlett Johansson‘s nude pics being splashed across the interwebs, a hacker claimed that he had grabbed pics from Mila Kunis‘ phone.

Stand-up comedian Whitney Cummings is getting her own show on NBC this fall. Like the great stand-up comedian sitcoms “Seinfeld” and “Roseanne,” it is simply named “Whitney.”
Cummings plays Whitney, a woman in a long term relationship with Alex (Chris D’Elia) and no plans on marriage.
If you live in a big city, you probably see lots billboards stating some of Cummings’ comedic observations about relationships. Over the summer, she met with the Television Critics Association to explain her views on humor and sitcoms. The pilot episode has her try to spice up their sex life by playing a slutty nurse in a bedroom fantasy. They can’t put that on a billboard. Read more… Keep reading »
