‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Kaley Cuoco Endures an ‘Appropriate Ass Kicking’ After Cake-Eating Binge (Photo)

Actress hits the gym and pays the price for over-indulging on sweets

Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we diet … and exercise, huh, Kaley Cuoco?

“The Big Bang Theory” star Cuoco posted a punishing reminder on the penance one must pay for overindulgence on Friday, noting that she was enduring an “appropriate ass kicking” after gorging herself on cake the previous evening.

“An appropriate ass kicking after eating basically an entire cake to myself last night,” Cuoco wrote.

The actress added, “#6weekspostop thank you @proactivesp & @ryan_sorensen!”

The message was accompanied by an image of Cuoco working out on a machine at the gym.

Cuoco has more incentive than an over-indulgence with cake to hit the exercise machines. The actress, who stars as Penny on the CBS sitcom, underwent shoulder surgery last month — just days after marrying her fiancé of seven months, professional equestrian Karl Cook.

Cuoco shared a photo of herself in July, looking unhappy to be recovering from shoulder surgery just five days after her wedding.

“When your ‘honeymoon’ is shoulder surgery and your husband looks just as happy lol on the road to recovery – thank you for all the love and support! knowing @mrtankcook I’m sure he will be posting tons of hilarious gems,” Cuoco wrote on Instagram. “Thank god my hair color is on point.”

The affinity for cake, and its consequences? That’s probably a burden we must all shoulder.
