I hope there’s a chapter on whether or not they got into some kinky When Harry Met Sally role playing after that picture was taken (just me? Okay then). According to the NY Daily News, Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak – aka Kelly and Ryan from The Office – have been given $7.5 million to write a book about their on-again off-again relationship. Mindy and B.J. dated during The Office and remained really close after they broke up. Currently, nobody knows what those two are (boyfriend/girlfriend? Life partners? Casual hump bumpers?), including Mindy. But they’re pretty much friends who used to fuck and now they’re getting paid a fuckload of money to write a book about that.
So far, nothing else is really known about their book, but it will probably be essays and stories. But who knows? Maybe they’ll throw in a sexy Sudoku puzzle (the only numbers are 6 and 9) or a Mad Magazine-style fold-in? Dear Mindy and B.J. – DO THAT. The NYDN has been told they’ll probably announce the title of their book at BookCon next week.
I know that writing a book with your ex might sound like a nightmare, but if it came with $7.5 million? Hell yes I would! And not one of the decent ones that I’m still on good terms with either; for $7.5 million, I’d take my most lying-ist cheating-ist small-dicked did-me-all-kinds-of-dirty halitosis-breath-having ex. For $7.5 million, I’d get the name of the book tattooed on my tits and do a cross-country book tour in a van. In a van! You know I’m serious about money if I’m willing to get butt sores and crotch cramps. Then again, I’d probably do it for $250,000 worth of Olive Garden gift cards, so maybe I’m not the best person to ask.
