Kaley Cuoco fully admitted she was in “full panic” during her 5.29 a.m. coffee this morning. The “Big Bang Theory” alum, no stranger to early alarms, was up before the sun on Tuesday, but the mood was not upbeat as Kaley told her 6.1 million Instagram followers that she’d slept through her alarm. Kaley, 34, filmed herself half-asleep while sipping her first coffee of the day. The star was in a NYC hotel room, in a bathrobe, and pretty grumpy. Check it out below.
Scroll for a snippet from the story. Kaley is in NYC to complete shooting her upcoming HBO Max series “The Flight Attendant,” and the early starts are a thing – just yesterday, Kaley was up at 4.43 a.m.
The videos, showing Kaley backed by a dark Big Apple skyline, came with the girl behind Penny in a slate gray bathrobe and with a white towel wrapped around her head. Kaley, wearing Kiehl’s eye cream and showing a 5.29 a.m. timestamp, admitted: “I had a little bit of a freakout this morning.”

“My alarm didn’t go off. I woke up though, like…I like to give myself an hour and a half in the morning,” then explaining that she needs the time to take chihuahua Dumptruck Dumpy out “in the morning.”
“Feed him, take him out, have my coffee, do my thing,” she continued. Text then accompanied the actress’ mini-rant as she wrote:
“I THOUGHT I WAS LATE WHICH I’M NEVER EVER LATE LIKE NEVER. MY ISSUE IS @DUMPS_DOES_NY IS ASLEEP AND I DON’T WANT TO WAKE HIM UP YET.”
If you aren’t up-to-date, Dumptruck Dumpy – yes, his real name – is the senior rescue pup Kaley and 2018-married husband Karl Cook adopted during the pandemic. He’s accompanying Kaley and 31-year-old sister Briana during their two-month NYC stint.
Kaley’s big hoopla over her beloved dog continued with the complications of Dumpy needing to “pee,” her waiting til “the last second to wake him up,” plus her feeding him “at work which he will be annoyed about.” Kaley concluded that taking care of her pooch is akin to caring for a child. More after the slightly-more-glamorous photo.
Dumpy’s @dumps_does_ny Instagram account, now somewhat of a cult phenomenon, got its name because it shows the NYC travels from Dumpy’s point of view. The feed, boasting over 50,000 followers, has shown Dumpy to be both adored and spoiled. He gets mortadella chicken sausage breakfasts chopped by Kaley, he’s been treated to ice-cream, and he gets pushed around in a stroller Kaley purchased on Amazon.
Kaley and billionaire heir husband Karl did not anticipate Dumpy to be a permanent deal. Fostering was the plan, but the couple fell in love, then deeming Dumpy a “foster fail” as they full-time adopted him.
