Ask and you shall receive.
Mindy Kaling loves Jimmy Fallon more than anything in the world right now.
The reason? On Thursday, the “Late Night” host granted Kaling’s wish and “asked about” her during his interview with Game of Thrones hunk Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Kaling, who made her request on Twitter hours before the taping, also received photographic evidence from Fallon. Read more on Celebuzz…
Shhh. Don’t tell Mindy Kaling, but I didn’t read her first memoir. (Yet!) From what I hear, 2011′s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) was okay. Her publisher thinks it was more-than-okay, because the 33-year-old is going to write a second memoir about “the high highs and the low lows of the past 18 months” during the hiatus before the second season of “The Mindy Project.” And if that’s not enough Mindy Kaling for you, she’s also coming back as Kelly Kapoor for “The Office” series finale. Damn, that girl is going to be busy! I guess there’s no time anymore for lunches with Reese Witherspoon or flirting with President Clinton. [Deadline Hollywood] [Image: WENN]
“We are pretty inseparable best friends with a lot of chemistry ourselves, and we’re not dating. Whenever we date anyone else, I think there’s a period where the person is very skeptical of our friendship — ‘Everyone seems to think you two might be a couple, and I don’t mean to get in the way. Are you sure you’re not dating? Are you sure you’re not going to end up dating?’ It’s such a common thing to have that platonic best friend that becomes a little weird when you start dating someone.”
–BJ Novak, who played Ryan to Mindy Kaling’s Kelly on “The Office,” and is now a producer of her new show “The Mindy Project,” describes how the duo’s real-life BFF relationship often complicates their romantic lives. I had no idea these two were friends in real life, and thinking about it is kind of giving me a cute attack (that’s when you’re so overwhelmed by cuteness you have to breathe into a paper bag for 5 minutes). In related news, BJ just started a two-episode guest appearance on “The Mindy Project,” so we’ll get to see more of their BFF chemistry in action. [Inside TV]
Mindy Kaling always looks so cute, and I especially love this outfit she wore to the FOX Winter 2013 Television Critics Association previews, rocking mixed patterns like a pro. I spent forever trying to find an affordable version of her printed coat, but ultimately had to settle for a polka dot number that’s not an exact replica, but will still go beautifully with a floral dress. After the jump, get the shopping details on all the pieces to recreate Mindy’s look — for $80 or less! Keep reading »
Today in Celeb Friendships I’d Like To Get In On: Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon had a fun-filled girlfriends lunch together in Hollywood this weekend. Are they collaborating on a project? Just pals? Might Reese make an appearance on “The Mindy Project”? Maybe Mindy will appear in Reese’s film adaptations of Gone Girl and Wild? The possibilities with this friendship are endless.

“Do you remember that episode of 30 Rock where Liz got the cheap Lasik and starts crying out of her mouth? It was so funny and a bit grotesque. I just thought, This is the funniest, coolest thing ever. In The Office, I didn’t get that many opportunities to go, Yeah, I’m completely willing to do stuff for comedy. In the pantheon of funniest people ever — Sasha Baron Cohen, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey — they all do these things that show they have no vanity, I’ve been really eager to embrace that.”
–Mindy Kaling, on putting it all on the line for comedy. We agree, gross can be really funny, though sometimes gross is just, well, gross (sorry, I’m watching “Scary Movie 4″ as I write this). Point is, female comedians shouldn’t be afraid of looking gross in order to be funny. [NY Mag]

I’ve finally gotten around to reading Mindy Kaling’s book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? One of the things that struck me the most is her chapter about the difference between men and boys. She reveals that until she was in her 30s, she only dated boys because men scared the shit out of her:
“Boys are wonderful in a lot of ways. They make amazing, memorable homemade gifts. They’re impulsive. Boys can talk for hours with you in a diner at three in the morning because they don’t have regular work hours. But they suck to date when you turn 30 …Men know what they want and they and they don’t let you in on their inner monologue, and that is scary.”

“I have found it to be true that men tend to not understand or like sequins very much,” actress and writer Mindy Kaling said in an interview on Tuesday with Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air.” She continued, “Men don’t like the wedge shoe, I have noticed. Men don’t like the statement necklace or chunky, tribal jewelry.”
But, she hasn’t let this “unscientific research” have an impact on what she actually wears. Kaling explained her list is somewhat meaningless, “These are all the things, by the way, that I love, so the overlap in the Venn diagram of things that men hate for women to wear, and things that I love to wear, is almost full overlap … which is unfortunate for me.” Hey-o! Man repeller alert! Read more…
