Mindy Kaling Feels That She Is Bill Clinton’s Type, and Other Book Club Revelations


If you missed the magnificent television segment that was Mindy Kaling and Bill Clinton's Holiday Book Club, then allow us to briefly recap: The Today show put Kaling and Clinton on side-by-side stools and made them talk about books. And it was hilarious. Bill Clinton recommended Marcus Aurelius, and Mindy gave him some side-eye, and then Bill expressed some interest in reading Terry Richardson's Lady Gaga book. There was also a fair amount of giggling. Anyway, Kaling was on Conan last night to discuss her own book, and she had some thoughts to share about the experience. Such as: "If he was gonna throw away a marriage, of anyone else, I was like, 'I think I have a shot at this.'" Bill's desperate post-segment search for Mindy might back that up, but there is only one way to find out for sure. And that way is: more book club.
