We Want Mindy To Be Our Dorky Mom

No matter what Mindy Kaling does after The Mindy Project, we’ll be there with popcorn and applause. She hasn’t talked a whole ton about what she’ll be doing after this season (which is also the show’s last), but in this interview from the Today Show she talks about how she got started in showbiz and what her long term parenting plan is.

Mindy Kaling Is America’s Cool Big Sister

We all know Mindy Kaling is funny and adorable. But sometimes we’re guilty of forgetting that she’s also a hard core badass. She’s been an executive producer, writer, and director on The Office, and she single-handedly created The Mindy Project. She also reps hard for comedians of color, and she’s a real role model for funny women everywhere. TL:DR – we love Mindy and you should too. Now watch this playlist, you nerds!

Mindy Kaling’s Reddit AMA Made Us Fall Even More In Love With Her

Mindy Kaling, queen of our hearts, badass, fierce woman of comedy, writer/comedian extraordinaire, recently did a Reddit “Ask Me Anything.”

How dope of a world we live in, where our comedy heroes will hope on a computer and answer our questions? As was obviously predicted, Mindy’s AMA was hilarious, charming, moving, and perfect. Much like her. Seriously, we had little baby tears prickling at our eyes while reading this. Why? Because Mindy is a damn inspiration!

Here are 8 things we learned about Mindy:

She has bad dates just like the rest of us.

Dating in Los Angeles is the worst and we all know it!

She wants to see Scully and Mulder get it on. (Again, just like the rest of us.)

Hubba, hubba.

She gets emotional about the projects she’s involved in.

If you haven’t seen “Inside Out” yet, what is wrong with you?! DO YOU HAVE A SOUL?!

She would collaborate with the Broad City gals in a heartbeat.

We are dying at this idea. It’s like all of our fanfiction dreams have come true.

She has a little crush on Aziz Ansari.

We get it because there’s nothing more attractive than someone helping their parents do something.

She is an absolute queen and will make you cry by how much she inspires people/humans/us.


Emma Thompson inspires her. (Us too.)

Dream brunch? Emma, Mindy, US!!!!

Her “squad goals” are ideal.
