Rachael Ray: Mindy Kaling
In her memoir, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Kaling talks about how she paid her dues in the comedy writing business. She had to work her way up and gain respect among her peers. Rachael Ray got a shout out in the book, but it wasn’t for what you’d expect. Kaling jokes that when she has too much sugary soda she “acts like a cracked out Rachael Ray.” Okay, maybe it was for what you expected.
Rachael Ray: The Mindy Project
Kaling played desperate girl Kelly Kapoor on The Office, which is ending it’s nine year run on television this spring. Don’t fret, Kaling is working two jobs and we’ll be able to enjoy her long after The Office ends. The Mindy Project gets better every week. She plays an OB/GYN named Mindy that doesn’t have her life in order. She’s told by her bestie, played by Anna Camp, that she needs to get her life in order and settle down. She sets off on a mission to find her true love.
The show really started slow and was hard for me to get into. I stuck with it, because I love my girl Mindy, and the show has blown up. I never miss a week and I’m in love with her co-star Chris Messina. That is a dashing man, ladies and gents.
