The pressures to succumb to society’s "skinny" standards are greater now than they’ve ever been before. With actresses and models posting pics of their petite figures left and right, it’s easy for women to compare – and resent – their own bods. But Whitney Cummings isn’t about that life. The 32-year-old comedienne took to Instagram today to proudly show off her recent 25 pound weight gain by going topless. And man, does she look awesome. "I did this weird thing that nobody likes to do anymore where I gained weight," she said to Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on "Today" earlier this week. "I gained like 25 pounds, which I think I needed to." The actress has received a lot of flack from the media for appearing too thin -- something she now says she agrees with. "I was way too skinny before," she continued. "Here’s the thing: When you’re on television, »

Whitney Cummings looked different on NBC's Today Monday. "We hardly recognized you," Kathie Lee Gifford said. "You look so great." "Well, I did get a new face," the comedienne quipped. "I bought it on eBay." Gifford said, "Well, you picked a good one!" Flattery aside, Cummings didn't deny that her appearance has changed. In fact, she said, "I did this weird thing that nobody likes to do anymore where I gained weight. I gained like 25 lbs., which I think I needed to. I was way too skinny before.

Adam Sandler thinks that the controversy surrounding his Netflix original movie The Ridiculous Six is simply a "misunderstanding".
The Western comedy has garnered significant press attention in the wake of Native American actors walking off the set over script objections.
The Ridiculous Six apparently includes comedic gags such as a woman urinating while smoking a peace pipe, a scene which angered local extras.
The comedian has now assured The AP that his movie will actually be a positive portrayal of Native Americans.
"It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out will be cleared up," Sandler insisted.
The Ridiculous Six is the first in a multi-film agreement between Sandler and Netflix.
Netflix premieres The Ridiculous Six on December 11. »
Adam Sandler is currently promoting his new movie "Pixels," but while he's talking to the press, the press is asking about another one of his projects: "The Ridiculous 6." That's the name of his Netflix comedy, which has an all-star cast and premieres December 11. You may recall the controversy over how Native Americans are depicted in the movie; about a dozen Native actors and actresses, and the cultural adviser, walked off the set in April, sharing their complaints. Netflix issued a statement standing by Sandler and the movie, and now the actor/producer is weighing in himself.
"It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out will be cleared up," he told The Associated Press on the red carpet for the world premiere of "Pixels." Sandler, who also co-wrote the script, called the movie 100 percent pro-American Indian.
Fans can judge for themselves (or skip the movie entirely) this December. »

Three months after Native American extras stormed off the set of Adam Sandler's The Ridiculous 6 over what they considered culturally offensive humor, the actor has commented on the controversy. At the red carpet premiere for Sandler's new movie Pixels, he was asked about the incident and whether the Western comedy stereotyped Native American culture. "It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out, it will be cleared up," Sandler told The Associated Press.
"I talked to some of the actors on the set who were there »
The television business is on the move, as smallscreen festivals become an increasingly important part of the way networks and studios do business. Helping to break through the avalanche of content to bring shows and talent to fans and build social-media buzz, the TV fest circuit amounts to a nonstop promo tour that spans the globe.
Hard on the heels of the fourth annual Atx Television Festival, which wrapped June 7 in Austin, some industryites took off for the Monte Carlo TV Festival, which runs through June 18, while others will hit the first-ever Seriesfest June 18-21 in Denver. Then they’ll gear up to head to San Diego for the increasingly TV-centric Comic-Con from July 9-12.
Alexandra Shapiro, exec VP of marketing and digital for USA Network, says festivals help to distinguish a show early by providing the kind of momentum that normally would require much more marketing money. “In a »

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.
Last night on late night, Letterman talked about retirement with President Obama, Conan sat down with Avengers’ Jeremy Renner and Silicon Valley‘s T.J Miller, Fallon made an 80s music video with Jack Black, James Corden did a 5 minute “best scene” green screen of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s movies with him, Kimmel talked about being Manny Pacquiao’s very own “Justin Bieber”, and at The Daily Show, producer Brian Grazer shared his thoughts on his book and career.
Late Show with Dave Letterman
“Hoping for a pardon”, “Down to the bitter end” With his time at CBS almost up, Dave is doing some pretty fun things, like sitting down with Obama and joking about playing dominos in retirement. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Sadly, David Letterman is winding down his term as "Late Show" host. On Monday night, President Barack Obama stopped by on the farewell tour. They talked about their mutual retirement plans (play dominoes together?) and President Obama said he knows Dave likes Michelle more than him. (Michelle was a guest late last week.) Dave asked Potus if this was the first country in which he was president. "It is, I suspect, the first and last country that I'm president. Unlike late-night talk show hosts, I have a term limit." Ba-dum-dum. Then the president gave a beautiful little speech in Dave's honor. "We've grown up with you. The country, I think, »

How to Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis will play famous abolitionist and former slave Harriet Tubman in an upcoming HBO movie.
The project will be based on Kate Clifford Larson’s Tubman biography Bound for the Promised Land, our sister site Deadline reports, and will detail how Tubman helped hundreds of slaves travel to freedom in the North.
Tubman later fought for the Union in the American Civil War.
Westeros weddings tend to be gruesome affairs. But the carnage kicked off by Margaery and Tommen’s wedding in this week’s Game of Thrones is shaping up to prove even more devastating than the Red Wedding and Joffrey’s Pigeon Pie Deathapalooza combined.
Well, for Cersei, at least.
Because even though the queen mother thinks King’s Landing bends to the whims of her prettily coiffed head, the episode makes it clear that the new queen has designs on — and the wherewithal for — ruling as she sees fit.
It’s really too bad that Oberyn Martell couldn’t carry »
Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.
Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2. Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either. They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there’s our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of. A very special thank »

Adam Sandler is making a comedy for Netflix called "The Ridiculous Six" and the streaming service is standing by their man in the wake of new controversy. According to Indian Country Today Media Network (Ictmn), about a dozen Native-American actors and actresses, plus the Native cultural adviser, left the set of "The Ridiculous Six" on Wednesday when they saw how the script appeared to insult Native women and elders. To quote the story:
The examples of disrespect included Native women's names such as Beaver's Breath and No Bra, an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe, and feathers inappropriately positioned on a teepee."
One of the men who walked off the set said he had initially refused to do the movie, but agreed to take the job when producers told him they had hired a cultural consultant and would make efforts to portray Natives in a tasteful way. »

Netflix has defended Adam Sandler and his upcoming movie The Ridiculous Six after roughly a dozen Native Americans actors and actresses, as well as the film's Native cultural adviser, walked off the New Mexico set, claiming the script was offensive and disrespectful, Deadline reports.
