Cory Booker Gives Update On Mindy Kaling Dinner Date!

Senator Cory Booker is spilling the deets on his flirty Twitter exchange with Mindy Kaling, which led her to agreeing to go on a date with him.

The 37-year-old actress made a joke in an episode of her Hulu show The Mindy Project, about the former mayor of Newark, New Jersey doing “anything to get out of Newark” which struck a nerve in Cory.

“Well first of all, don’t read too into it about ‘asking out,’” Cory told Vanity Fair. “I want to sort of take the romantic aspect out of it and talk more about how she’s amazing. Her show gave a little dis to Newark, and I’m a big defender of cities, and so I called her out on it. 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. She hasn’t yet. I mean, she’s a busy person . . . so we’ll see what happens in the future.”

“I just think she’s a really wonderful person, that’s it,” Cory added. “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.”

Mindy Kaling sits courtside with her dad Avu Chokalingam while attending the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night (April 9) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old The Mindy Project actress stopped by the Luli Fama swimwear and Kopari Beauty VIP shopping event at the game, where a portion of the sales were donated to the Lakers Youth Foundation.

Mindy took to Instagram at the game to share a photo of her tub of popcorn and to say that she’s in heaven.

“in heaven and oh so on brand, and no, my popcorn could not be bigger,” she captioned the pic.

'Mindy Project' to End After Season Six

The Mindy Project is coming to a close – the show has been renewed for one final season.

“We’re really excited about this last season,” creator and star Mindy Kaling told EW. “I think the timing is exactly right. What’s weird is, Mindy is married at the end of the season 5 finale, but she has never been married in the series, so that’s incredibly fun for a character who’s been obsessed with [marriage] and has come close many times, and seeing her disavow it for a while after her disastrous breakup with who she thought was her soulmate. And now she’s married! The final season is the final time—it’s the best time—to confront what that reality is for her. And really, we’ve put her through the ringer. It’s hard. I’m a romantic at heart. I believe that marriage is like, a sacred relationship, and I really like it, but I’m also single myself, so I see every side of it. It’s going to be really fun to explore.”

No word just yet on how many episodes the final season will contain. The final season is expected to air in the fall on Hulu.
