“There’s a whole list of things I would probably change about myself,” Mindy said. “For example, I’m always trying to lose fifteen pounds. But I never need to be skinny. I don’t want to be skinny. I’m constantly in a state of self-improvement, but I don’t beat myself up over it.”

FYI: Mindy is wearing a Salvador Perez blouse, J Crew skirt, Kate Spade necklace.

    Don’t let Joan Rivers hear you say that, Mindy. According to her, you should be as big around as a pencil to have any self worth.
    Also, 85% of your body should be plastic.
    Yeah, I’d take advice from the Crypt Keeper.

    this girl and lena dunham are so gross. both their voices are shrill as hell. why do mindy kaling and lena dunham always have themselves going out with guys totally out of their league in their tv shows? it seems like they have big egos (but are bitter they’re unattractive) and they just live out their fantasies onscreen. pathetic.

    Agreed that not everyone needs to be skinny or even looks that great skinny. She is slender and looks sexy! Now the purple shoes are another story!
