Whitney Cummings was in the news recently. On September 4, 2018, the American actress got engaged to her boyfriend Miles Skinner, and posted the proof to her Instagram. Since she is in the news, we thought it appropriate to dig a little about her. Here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about Whitney Cummings.
1. Her Parents divorced when she was 5
Although she got engaged on September 4 and will soon be getting a husband in the name of Miles, Whitney Cummings knows a thing or two about love gone south. She, unfortunately, witnessed it at the tender age of 5 when her parents divorced. Not a good start!
2. She starred in, wrote, executive-produced, and created a sitcom that did awful
In 2011, Whitney Cummings starred in a Sitcom that punched a hole (maybe more) in her CV. The Holywood actress wrote, executive-produced, and created Whitney, a sitcom that received really negative reviews. It ran for two seasons all the while getting bombarded with rotten tomatoes. IMDB reviewers were particularly mean.
3. She once hated relationships
Cummings is the envy of every sad single girl out there right now but things have not always been so rosy when it comes to matters of her heart. The ‘2 Broke Girls’ creator started dating Battleship director Peter Berg in 2012… and then came a really devastating break-up.
Although the couple avoided public break-up drama, Whitney did mention how awful the experience was during a few of her stand-up acts. She romantically starved herself for four years and once posted on Twitter:
“Sometimes I want a boyfriend then I realize I just want an assistant.”
4. Whitney Cummings’ comedy is influenced by Bill Hicks and George Carlin
If you are a fan of George Carlin and Bill Hicks, it might surprise you to learn that Whitney Cummings names these two legends as two of her influences. Bill and George were sort of outlaws when it came to their material. Cummings’ comedy is rather mundane and purely just for laughs and that is why it is odd that she is inspired by Bill and Goerge.
5. She is worth $15 million
Whitney has a networth of $15 million. That is not much compared to the likes of Beyonce, but it still gets her a comfy life. Besides, she still has the time, energy, and talent to make even more as the years come and go. But then losing it all is possible – like these celebrities who lost everything.
