Whitney Cummings stopped by EW Morning Live for a chat about her new Comedy Central show “Whitney Cummings: I Love You,” during which she revealed a sad behind-the-scenes fact about those seemingly all-in-good-fun Comedy Central roasts.

Cummings said she doesn’t “want to roast again until it’s someone I know and someone I’m friends with. People think I’m really tough, but actually I’m really fragile. After the roast me and Lampanelli would go in our dressing rooms and cry. I shouldn’t keep up this facade anymore that I’m really tough and you can say anything to me,” she said. “[People] people started thinking I was that person, so I would just be walking down the street and people would be yelling profanities at me and insulting me … I’m actually much more delicate than I give off!”

Not to worry, Cummings assures us that she would do roast again if it “was Chelsea Handler or a friend of mine where you know its in jest or in good fun.”

Lastly, Cummings compares how men and women react differently to the cruel roast jokes. She thinks that male comedians wouldn’t admit that they were hurt by the jokes to other comics, but she’s sure they will “feel” it. “Comedians are notoriously fake tough. We are like porcupines, we’re tough on the outside … Comedians all know that we are joking, but under any joke there’s some kind of truth–comedians aren’t the most secure people on the planet.”
