Chrissy Teigen Is on 'The Mindy Project,’ So Let's Re-Live Her Epic Friendship With Mindy Kaling
Two of your girl crushes are in one place as Chrissy Teigen guest-stars on The Mindy Project on Jan. 13. In Season 3, Episode 13, "San Francisco Bae" (an amazing title, by the way, and with lucky 13 twice), Teigen won't appear as herself, though — she's playing a mysterious character named Grace. I say "mysterious" because there is no information or photographs of her in action online, but there's a 50/50 split on whether she'll be in flashbacks with college-aged Mindy Lahiri or in present day San Francisco. Below is an official synopsis of the episode to get your gears turning:
"While trying to make friends in her new city, Mindy runs into a nerd-turned-billionaire ex-flame from Princeton. She imagines the life of riches she could have had with him and questions her relationship with Danny. Meanwhile, back in New York, Danny and Morgan think they witness Lauren cheating on Jeremy with Peter, so they devise a way to spy on Peter."
Kaling tweeted that Teigen drops by in the "funniest way possible" and that Grace does not like Mindy, so my bet is on a mean girl in college or Alex's (guest star Lee Pace) current girlfriend. Sometimes reconnecting with the girl you lost your virginity to can affect your current relationship, after all. It looks like a cat fight happens, because in December, Teigen and Kaling had the following exchange discussing boob grabbing and fist fights:
Whoa, this is going to be epic. And honestly, it's about damn time that Teigen appeared on the show. For years, she and Kaling have had amazing Twitter conversations that all led up to this moment. I've compiled a handful of gems below to show why it's been a long time coming and why they need to keep collaborating — especially when it comes to fashion and food.
Notably, they tweeted at each other for a year before they met in person. It's like online dating!
