Whitney Cummings says she was too skinny. So Whitney Cummings put on a few pounds, but still stayed healthy. The result is a face that people think is the result of really good surgery and a body that she's proud to show off topless. (Pic below.)
Cummings revealed her new look to Hoda and Kathie Lee this week, all while joking about how she got there. The hosts commented that it looked like Whitney had a new face.
"I did get a new face. I bought it on eBay," Cummings joked.
The truth, however, swims against everything most people think.
"I did this weird thing that nobody likes to do anymore where I gained weight," Cummings revealed."I put on, like, 20 pounds. People think I got a face lift."
Exactly how much weight Cummings put on she doesn't even seem to remember.
"I gained, like, 25 pounds, which I think I needed to," she said. "I was way too skinny before. Here's the thing... when you're on television you get confused. I looked like I was passing away, like I was so skinny. It's not attractive."
While many women in Hollywood are decrying the insistence of producers that actresses lose weight before being considered for roles, Whitney found something in it all to laugh about.
"I feel like all the advice to girls now to lose weight, lose weight ... they say you have to pick your face or our ass. I'm picking my face," she announced. "But I hope somebody else picks the other one."
It's not all eating and intentional weight gain. Whitney has a couple of gadgets she is fond of.
"And then I got this LED machine online, like you use on your face," she explains "I'm always wearing it. It's like a white mask that you put on, and you look so crazy. It's like an LED mask that you wear every day. It tightens. I've been using it like three months."
It's tough to drive while using that LED mask. So Whitney has another product that she takes with her when she is on the run.
"There's this machine, it looks like a sex toy, called Nu Face. I use it while I'm driving. I'm doing a new show on high-def television -- which hates women -- so I'm just trying to kind of [help my face]."
Cummings is so proud of her new look, she's showing everyone. She posted a couple of snapshots to Instagram that would've made Chelsea Handler proud.
One was in Chipotle, which must be one of her beauty secrets.
The other was a topless shot in a closet full of shoes.
