hi anon, thanks for sharing your story!!! i think you’re right; when you’re certain about something like that, you’d say no right away. and after 10 years, you’d be fairly certain that you’re not going to end up with somebody - unless you’re not. mindy + bj have both expressed uncertainty about their eventual endgame, and that is suuuper interesting to me. they know what’s there.
A) SAME!!! B) i would not be surprised, they have that quality about them. C) i think about this ALL THE TIME. i think some of their lighter, more amusing twitter interactions are just for the sake of bantering in public where people will appreciate it. the fact that they share their more romantic/loving aspects of their relationship is definitely for the fans. (but i always think of it as like, not so much pandering as it is… incredibly aware, tease-y pda.) the stern tweet i found more like, mindy realized she’d just spilled some major beans on her + bj and felt the need to kind of acknowledge that on her twitter. looking back, i don’t think she meant for him to respond at all on that medium, but just to kind of cop to the fact that it happened, if that makes sense?
The main reason I’m reluctant to get married to Mindy is that every single person in our lives and Twitter feeds would say, ‘I knew it.’ I just couldn’t fucking deal with that. But we know. We know what’s there.
what an opportune time to bring this back! i’ve always tried to take this quote with a grain of salt, because i’m aware that bj is at least half-joking with the “main reason” thing. but the part about “we know what’s there”? that’s so real.
Mindy Kaling talking about BJ Novak on The Howard Stern Show (15 September 2014)
okay, i lied: there are still asks about the howard stern interview that i missed! also, i won’t be getting to every single one of the asks pre-stern interview, i’m sorry! i’ll try to get all the biggest points though!
i’m still reeling in the aftermath of this morning’s revelation, no doubt. i’m still so heartbroken + wanting to wrap mindy up in my arms with a warm towel and a cup of tea, but somewhat excited to see what happens next with these two now that everything’s in the open??? somewhat hopeful about mindy + bj’s relationship but slightly scared at the same time????
I’M STARTING OFF WITH THIS ASK BECAUSE OF REASONS. I LAUGHED @ THIS BUT THIS IS NOT THE TONE OF THE REST OF THIS ASK POST SORRY FOR FALSE ADVERTISING
I’M SO SORRY GUYS I’M GOING TO BED NOW BUT I’M JUST GONNA QUICKLY ANSWER THIS ONE. mindy pleading the fifth was like the best possible response she could’ve given. bj’s gonna have a conniption when he watches this interview
