Matchmaker, Matchmaker: Mindy’s Many Love Interests On The Mindy Project

View Photo Gallery

Over less than two seasons, The Mindy Project has featured a plethora of disastrous dating adventures for Dr. Lahiri and a as who’s who of Hollywood guest stars. Do we hate Mindy Kaling for getting to go on fictional dates with more than one of our Top 5 Celebrity Crushes? Maybe. Would we do the same thing if we had our own scripted series? Of course.

The Big Girls Attend The Baby2Baby Gala: Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Rachel Zoe Shine

Celebrities At The Baby2Baby Gala

Sometimes certain events tend to surprise us because they’re low-flying on the radar, but end up being so highly attended that we have to sit up and take notice. That’s what happened with the Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday at the Book Bindery in Culver City, California. It’s a great cause providing families in need with baby-care products and essentials. A lot of very stylish moms showed up in support. We found Jessica Alba breathtaking in a shell, frothy Valentino Resort 2013 confection with a Roger Vivier clutch and Harry Winston jewels. Nicole Richie picked a similar color scheme opting for a gorgeous 1920′s inspired Lorena Sarbu Fall 2012 nude gown with an Art Decod pattern, with side-swept retro hair. Rachel Zoe also rocked it in a white goddess gown with black piping. Think it was her own design?

Another favourite was Julie Bowen‘s purple sequined Naeem Khan caftan accesorized with a Jimmy Choo tube clutch. Others that looked good, but not great, like the ladies mentioned so far, were Ali Larter (who should have nixed the leopard belt), Molly Sims (too drab in black, as was Rebecca Gayheart) and Busy Philipps whose dress was lovely but her brown clutch and turquoise jewelry ruined it for us. Mindy Kaling did work her Max Mara pale pink crepe gown even though the fitting was a little off! Read more…

Mindy Kaling Writes A Rom-Com, Anne Hathaway Stars, The Plot Sounds Awful: 2 Out Of 3 Ain’t Bad

Mindy Kaling Writing Rom-Com, Anne Hathaway To Star

Mindy Kaling has been blowing up this fall like an adorable, witty neutron bomb. Anne Hathaway has already rolled around nude with Jake Gyllenhaal in Love And Other Drugs, not to mention pulled off a British accent and spectacles for One Day. All signs point to a Kaling-penned/Hathaway-starring rom-com being a runaway success…until you read the film’s plot summary. Entitled The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie, the movie, co-written by Kaling, “centers on a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. When she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever.” Hoo boy. The sound you just heard was a million lady-nerds getting their hopes up. Way, way up.

Look, we’re the kind of people who will have a complete emotional meltdown over truly putrid rom-coms like Down to You, Over Her Dead Body or (Lord help us) Gigli, but even we’ve got to draw a line somewhere. We’re sure Hathaway could pull off a lady with self-esteem problems (just slap on those Princess Diary eyebrows again and set her lose!), but then to have “the hottest guy ever” cure her of said problems? Honestly, we’d rather watch All About Steve. No, you’re right…that was way harsh, Mindy. Maybe we shouldn’t underestimate you based solely on a plot summary? Maybe Anne’s character learns in the end that she doesn’t need a hot guy’s approval to be happy…or he turns out to be an angel that decides to be human, then Meg Ryan gets hit by a lumber truck while riding her bicycle. Oh god, who are we kidding? We’ll watch any rom-com we can get our weepy eyeballs on!
