Favorite Quotes from Whitney Cummings
My definition of love is: Being willing to die for someone, that you yourself want to kill.
A true friend will go with the Instagram filter that flatters you.
Saying women aren’t funny is now like saying Asians can’t drive or saying black people have bad credit. It’s just really, like, so obsolete.
I don’t think that women necessarily always write like women. I was a writer on the Comedy Central Roasts for a while, and I always wrote the jokes that people assumed the men would write.
When a guy writes a scene where a woman does a deviant *** act on camera, it’s objectifying. But when a woman writes it, it’s feminism.
I don’t want to look at myself – ever. All I see is that my face is a problem. It’s asymmetrical. I get terrible bags under my eyes.
Lessons learned from Whitney Cummings
Notable lessons that can be learned from Cummings include her authenticity, she revealed when taking the photo cover of her book:
“Something nobody tells you when you write a book: taking an author photo is incredibly awkward. I’ve had many experiences where I read an amazing book, gotten to the end, seen the author photo and felt completely betrayed by this person whose mind I just melded with for a week. If an author photo feels desperate or is overly serious if it’s a funny book, or overly cheery if it’s a dramatic book, I feel emotionally violated. When it came time to shoot my author photo, I panicked because I didn’t want to sell out or betray the tone of the book with some glamour shot that would make people think I’m an egomaniacal narcissist. I wanted it to feel authentic, so I asked people on the crew for their glasses and some pencils, and we tried to get a photo that captures how ridiculous it is that a comedian wrote a self-help book.”
The comedian is also brutally honest, when it comes to share important aspects about her private life and how she eventually looked for professional help in order to deal with low self worth and codependency.
Whitney is also known to have cero tolerance for racism and in 2018, Cummings who was set to oversee ABC’s Roseanne revival in 2018 but stepped immediately down after Roseanne Barr posted racist tweets — a move which would result in the series’ cancellation entirely.
Most recently, Whitney showed she sticks to her beliefs and supported several young women who came forward alleging that Chris D’elia had sexually harassed them. Despite being a friend and co-worker, Cummings publicly condemned D’elia’s perverted actions.
