Martha Plimpton Questions Notion That ‘Sexy Women’ Are Underrepresented on Television

Whitney Cummings has two new TV shows in her future: NBC's Whitney, in which she stars, and CBS's 2 Broke Girls, which Cummings co-created and co-produces. CBS president Nina Tassler called 2 Broke Girls, which stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as Brooklyn waitresses, the “highest-testing pilot we’ve ever had at CBS," so expectations are high. But what's Cummings's inspiration for trying to take over TV this season? “I didn’t see anything on TV for young, sexy, smart women to look at and say, ‘Yeah, I relate to that, I’m like her,'" Cummings told the Times. "It’s time. It’s time.” Yeah? Hmmm. Martha Plimpton chimed in: "She's right. There're way too many old, ugly, fat women on television," the Raising Hope actress tweeted. "The time for ugly fat ladies is OVER! Too many ugly old stupid ladies get all the attention. And jobs. UNTIL NOW! GD it! If I have to see ONE MORE tv show about old ugly fat women. Hey Granny Move over and make room for sexy young chicks. It's OUR time!" Point taken. [MarthaPlimpton/Twitter via ONTD]
