Whitney Cummings to host MTV’s New Year’s Eve? With the Jersey Shore? We’re not being “Punk’d”

It may be only Nov. 1, Whitney Cummings leaked news earlier today about where she'll be ringing in 2011, and it'll bring her back to her first big employer: MTV.

Cummings says she'll be hosting MTV's New Year's Eve Bash from Times Square, alongside the cast of MTV's Jersey Shore. When she mentioned it on Twitter, she joked: "Plan accordingly while I get an IUD."

Cummings confirmed the news to me this afternoon, as well as the fact that "Punk'd was my first gig." But this news is unrelated. One other thing she said you can count on from her when she returns to MTV in a much higher-profile gig? "And yes, there will be a roast of the Jersey Shore!"
