At the beginning of 2013, stand-up comedian Whitney Cummings had three different shows on TV at the same time.
Cummings starred in an NBC sitcom bearing her name, Whitney, that she created, produced and wrote for, fronted a weekly talk-show for E!, Love You, Mean It, and co-created and executive produced another sitcom, 2 Broke Girls on CBS. The NBC sitcom made it two seasons; the talk show, not so much. But 2 Brooke Girls is heading into its third season this fall and already primed for syndication.
Yesterday, Cummings sat down with Wendy Williams on her talk show to dish about that experience, facing heat from the critics and more. If you want to know how it felt to be Whitney this past year, dig in. Cummings also describes meeting Michael Patrick King (her future co-creator on 2 Broke Girls) for the first time and making sure she had the perfect shoes for it, lets us in on how she is dating an older man, and spends more than a few moments admiring and coveting Williams’s curves.

Cummings also talked about being in NYC with friend Chelsea Handler. Cummings is sticking around the Northeast for much of July on her current stand-up tour. For more dates and locations, check the Whitney Cummings site.
