  • “The Office” actress/writer Mindy Kaling is so over this “Are women funny?” conversation. (As am I.) While speaking to the Television Critics Association, Kaling was asked about recent pay-attention-to-meeeee comments by “The Man Show”‘s Adam Carolla that women just aren’t as funny as men. “Anything about putting into question whether women are funny or funny writers, I can’t comment on because it’s just so ridiculous,” Kaling responded. “It kind of keeps the argument alive. I said in my book, it’s like a nonsensical argument that we choose to keep alive by commenting on. It’s just beneath everyone by having it be a debate.” Damn straight! [The Wrap]

The 2012 upfronts are over! Dozens of brand-new midseason and fall 2012 television shows were announced, and we offered snap judgments on all of them. (See herehereherehere, and here.)

Sitcoms for everyone! Mindy Kaling is the latest lady we love to get her own show: a source tells NYmag.com that Fox will be ordering a pilot written and starring the fabulous Miss K. The “Office” star will play an OB/GYN as ”young Bridget Jones type … trying to navigate both her personal and professional lives.” Obstretics and gynecology are actually something our girl Mindy knows about in real life, seeing as her mama is a gyno in Boston. I’m suspending judgment for now: I love Mindy Kaling as much as the next 20something liberal arts degree-holding urban female, but it remains to be seen where stirrups and Pap smears are funzies on TV.  [NYMag.comGuardian UK]

Leave it to Mindy Kaling to make meeting former President Bill Clinton on “The Today Show” sound adorable. And also leave it to Mindy Kaling to suggest she thought she could be Bill’s type because she’s “a little chunky.” That’s one way to look at it. [Team Coco]

In this clip from “The Today Show,” Ann Curry discusses favorite books with Bill Clinton and Mindy Kaling, which is, yes, kind of a strange pair. You can tell Mindy is a little freaked out by the set up, and Ann is kind of a stone cold beyotch to Mindy, dissing her while she flirts mercilessly with Bill Clinton. Also, Bill Clinton totally picks all these brown nose-y smart dude books while Mindy picks the fun books you’d actually want to read. Still, it’s really cute when Mindy tells Ann that she wishes she’d been able to get a peek at Bill’s list before she gave her own.

“I think people still think that I’m like my character [on "The Office"], or that because I like girly things and I have a lilt in my voice that I’m dumb. But I don’t think you can be dumb and write a big chunk of a TV show. … I think of myself as a smart and funny person, but I am very girly, and in the past I’ve been hurt by people who criticise me for liking things they think are beneath me, like shopping or whatever, and the people who give me the hardest time about it are women. I think it may be because there are so few women in comedy and so there’s a feeling that we shouldn’t sell women out, but I don’t see talking about fashion as selling women out.”

Mindy Kaling on the misperception that a smart girl also can’t like “girly” things like fashion, makeup and boys (!!!). Interestingly, this is a view held by Vogue editrix herself Anna Wintour. [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

Hanging Out With Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling book

Even the title of Mindy Kaling‘s new book of essays is relatable: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). I’ve totally been there, too, girl. Now all of us can hang out with “The Office” writer/actress any time we want. With her trademark wit and intellect, Mindy shares stories about her immigrant parents, performing a show about Matt Damon and Ben Affleck off-Broadway, and joining one of the most popular sitcoms on television. Mark my words: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is going to make me want to make Mindy Kalin my new BFF. [$25, Powells.com]
