I'm frequently commenting about how little television watching I do. I guess that's not entirely true, there's plenty of stuff that I was but I don't dedicate a TV schedule line-up that I plan to sit down for each week. I decided I'd get into "The Walking Dead" this season while it aired, but more commonly, I'm a channel surfer who will stumble upon stuff and just enjoy it in the moment. That, and you can't wrestle the remote away from me when I'm 420ing to Comedy Central. So I thought we'd look at one of the potentially hot funny ladies this week.
I don't know if I'm ever going to be able to do a Hot or Not on Chelsea Handler in good faith. I love that bitch, find her funny and sexy as hell, but even I have to admit that she's really not physically attractive. I first got introduced to Whitney Cummings when I saw her appear regularly on Chelsea's panel of funny people during the first segment of "Chelsea Lately." And Cummings, almost too true to her name, was a foul-mouthed chick who carried her dirty humour without flinching or playing the whiny cynical card like many other female comedians who do the sex talk.
What makes me admire Whitney even more is that she's working her ass off between a lot of projects. From appearing in low budget horror flicks (GRIZZLY PARK, which is pretty good for what it's worth - you people who are looking for horror movies this month that you haven't watched) to doing stand-up to currently headlining her own eponymous sitcom as well as doing writing for another chick series, "Two Broke Girls," Cummings isn't resting any laurels or wasting time fretting if people like her or not.
Ah, but the nitty gritty of this question relates to what I said about Chelsea Handler. Whitney cleans up well and overall is not what I could say is unattractive in good conscience. But the fact that she's just barely turned 29 (if one is to believe the birth date listed on IMDB) and looks as if she's already had some plastic surgery done, I'm uncomfortable with. I like her comedy, love the scratchy-sexy sound of her voice and must admit that I will stop and pay attention to her when she's on screen because she's got major presence. But HOT? That's a really hard one for me to answer.
What are your thoughts on Whitney Cummings?
