Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak Co-Writing Book About Their Odd Relationship


If you watched “The Office” there were two relationships you probably hoped somehow transferred into real life. Jim and Pam (of course) and then Kelly and Ryan (although much less dysfunctionally.) Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak just had such on screen chemistry that it was hard to believe they didn’t really belong together. While they may not be on the Kelly/Ryan level, the duo are actually really close in real life.

It was recently announced that the duo are co-writing a book about their actual real life and incredibly adorable and unique relationship. According to Kaling, their real-life relationship is not to far of a stretch from their on-screen appearance. Kaling calling it “weird as hell” and furthering explaining it more of a “romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments” than a traditional romance or friendship.

The book will be announced at BookCon on May 30. Kaling will be there to promote her new essay collection titled, “Why Not Me?”

Mindy Kaling Stars in B.J. Novak’s Book Trailer


There are very few people I love together more than Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak. Even though Kelly and Ryan don’t exist in real life, the BFF’s, never stop supporting each other.

Kaling recently joined her fellow “The Office” alum in his recently released book trailer promoting his first release. Novak’s book, titled “One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories,” will hit shelves and devices February 4th.

Kaling and Novak spoof avant-garde French movies in the video and even give a wink to their former hit show’s most famous line.

One More Thing was the subject of a bidding war that landed Novak a major advance. Excerpts have appeared in The New Yorker and Playboy. Kaling had a best-seller in 2011 with Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns).
