It's rare that a celebrity shows off a weight gain, but that’s exactly what Whitney Cummings is proudly doing.
The 32-year-old comedian posed topless in a closet full of enviable heels that she aptly described as a "shoegasm."
The cheeky photo
did more than just make us jealous of Whitney's shoe game -- it also showed off her new figure after putting on 25 pounds.
During a visit to the Today show
on Monday, the 2 Broke Girls
co-creator admitted that she had gotten too thin. Realizing she needed to take control, Whitney says she "did this weird thing that nobody likes to do anymore" and actually gained weight.
"I was way too skinny before," she told the Today co-hosts, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. "Here's the thing, when you're on television, you get confused. I looked like I was passing away, like I was so skinny. It's not attractive."
The weight gain changed Whitney's appearance enough that she said people were asking if she got a face lift! Besides packing on a few pounds, two products have also helped alter her look -- NuFace and an LED mask.
Always one to find a punchline
, Whitney couldn't help but crack a joke when Hoda and Kathie Lee gushed over her look. "I did get a new face," she said with an impressively mock-sincere tone. "I bought it on eBay."
Whitney -- who is filming an HBO special next month in Santa Monica, California -- looks amazing these days, and we hope she keeps up all the hard work she's put into making herself healthy. Or, at the very least, that she keeps sharing goofy photos like this one:
We're sure they’ll let you back on the Today show, Whitney! At least, we think they will…
Hairspray star Marissa Jaret Winokur also gained weight recently. Hear her explain why she's happier now in the video below.
