Remember when Cory Booker very earnestly, very thirstily asked Mindy Kaling out on a date over Twitter? He just wanted to have a casual dinner with a beautiful, intelligent woman and use that opportunity to defend Newark.After Mindy’s character on “The Mindy Project” dissed New Jersey on a recent episode, Booker took to Twitter to defend his state. “Well first of all, don’t read too into it about ’asking out,” Booker told Vanity Fair. He's younger than me," she notes of the 30-year-old actor. It's like the fountain of youth." As for Jordan versus Brad Pitt, Kaling -- who's starring in the upcoming Showrunner Reveals the Biggest Moment in the Show's History De Generes points out that Pitt has six kids with Jolie. She drops them off in sweats, I'm in an Oscar gown, we can't compete." Ultimately, Kaling goes with Jordan, but what happens when Scott Eastwood is thrown into the mix?
The comedian’s on-again, off-again relationship with Novak has inspired entire Tumblrs dedicated to the couple, but Kaling told in a new interview that she’s happy with their relationship and where it’s at now.Her show gave a little dis to Newark, and I’m a big defender of cities, and so I called her out on it. so we’ll see what happens in the future.” What I am inferring from this statement, and the many more that followed it, are that Kaling is too busy and or not actually interested in Booker and he has made it his life goal to get her over to New Jersey so he can show her that he just really, really cares about her. “A lot of people read more into it then there’s there, but this is just somebody I really revere, and have just a reverence for in terms of the impact that she is making in so many ways…“Not only did she say, hey, this is her character, not [her personal insult], but then she agreed to come over to Newark, New Jersey. So, to have her come to my city to see it and bring her spotlight there is a wonderful thing.” Wait, did you want to compliment her at all any more? So all the romantic talk, put that aside, but let’s focus on a really extraordinary human being that I hope to get to New Jersey.” Well, Booker: you definitely haven’t convinced anyone this thing doesn’t have a romantical bent.And long story short, he ended up using a variety of extremely flirtatious emojis and asked Kaling for dinner in Newark. “I want to sort of take the romantic aspect out of it and talk more about how she’s amazing. You promise it’s not about you having a major crush on the 37-year-old actress? You see, despite what we all witnessed with our own eyes, Booker is now playing this off like there was nothing romantic about his intentions.
