HARRINGTON PARK, N.J. -- Is a dinner date between U.S. Senator Cory Booker and Hollywood actress and writer Mindy Kaling in the works?
The short answer? When she's around!
An exchange went down on Twitter after Booker got word that Kaling's character on FOX/Hulu's "The Mindy Project" — which she created — dissed Newark on the show this week.
Ouch! 💔 @MindyKaling, heard Dr. Lahiri dissed Newark last night 🤔... @VogueMagazine & I disagree ✌🏼: http://cor.bo/2nJtwhP (I still ❤️U!)
Senator, if Mindy Lahiri shades it, it means we know it's cool. Thanks for the ❤. It's mutual!
You are making my day! Thanks for the clarification. And If the ❤️is really mutual... Come have dinner with me in Newark? #PleaseSayYes 🤞🏾
And, she did! The senator tweeted Kaling the PATH train scheduled but promised to send a Lyft right to her door.
