Cummings started as a panelist on Chelsea Handler's E! talk show, Chelsea Lately. Now, Handler, 37, is executive producer of Cummings show.

In 2011, Cummings was the executive producer, creator and star of her TV sitcom, Whitney, but NBC has not yet decided to pick up the show for a second season. She is also a co-creator of CBS' 2 Broke Girls from the same year, which will return for season two.
