1. Happy Birthday Mindy Kaling! 
Here’s our interview with Kaling, in which we talk about fashion:

"I have found it to be true that men tend to not understand or like sequins very much. Men don’t like the wedge shoe, I have noticed. Men don’t like the statement necklace or chunky, tribal jewelry. 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.
Like most women, I dress for other women. If I was going to dress for men, in general, I would just be wearing a fitted black T-shirt and tight jeans every day. Of course, this is my unscientific research done by working with male comedy writers for the past eight years. They just tend to really like — this specific group of guys — really simple, clean lines, things like that, but I don’t. So I dress for women, I wear all of those things, because I like looking at it. It makes me feel happy and excited to wear it.”

    interview

  1. Mindy Kaling is the creator and star of “The Mindy Project" which starts its second season Tuesday September 17th on Fox.
The season ended with Mindy getting engaged to Casey (played by Anders Holm, right) while doing philanthropic work in Haiti. She returns to her OB-GYN practice and meets the doctor (James Franco) that filled in while she was away.
When Mindy spoke to Terry Gross she talked about how she wanted to approach her job as show-runner:

One thing my mom and dad raised me believing is that everyone is busy, so it’s not really a good conversation topic to talk about how busy you are. And it’s a little narcissistic, in fact, to talk about that, because everyone is stressed out no matter what job you’re in. Nobody is like, ‘Yeah, I’m doing really well — work is just a total snooze and so easy.’
So when I got this job, I thought, ‘I’m going to be that person who is the star of their own show and the show-runner and the head writer, et cetera, et cetera — but I’m going to always seem like it’s no big deal.’ And I was actually able to do that for the first six weeks. And now, I have to say, it’s a little hard to pretend that I’m just like this cool-as-a-cucumber person.

  1. Actress and comedy writer Mindy Kaling is on the show tomorrow.
The second season of The Mindy Project (which she stars in and created) starts next week. Congrats, Mindy!
Her hilarious memoir “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” was a bestseller.
Some highlights of the book include: addressing her “chubby” childhood years, living in squalor with her best friends after college, interning for Conan O’Brien, her widely celebrated play “Matt & Ben,” and her genuine skepticism about one-night stands.

  1. Now that I’m in Hollywood, I have many friends who run their own shows and one of the personality traits at a party — being overwhelmed by being a show-runner on a show — is just something people adopt. …

    And one thing my mom and dad raised me believing is that everyone is busy, so it’s not really a good conversation topic to talk about how busy you are. And it’s a little narcissistic, in fact, to talk about that because everyone is stressed out no matter what job you’re in.
