Mindy Kaling Confirms Pregnancy Rumors!

Summer TCA

It’s official! Mindy Kaling sat down with Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist to share her feelings on motherhood. “[I’m] really excited,” 38 year-old Mindy gushed. “It’s so unknown to me. I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life and this is one where I’m like, ‘OK, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling… one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child.”

Congratulations Mindy! Sunday TODAY previewed the interview earlier this morning, but the full interview will air Sunday, September 10th on NBC.

CORINNE OLYMPIOS

Last night, viewers were curious to see how Bachelor in Paradise would handle the alleged sexual misconduct that occurred on set. Of course, Warner Bros. was unable to show the incident that caused so much controversy, but they were able to share the moment production shutdown. It began with Corinne Olympios being pulled away from set by a producer. A producer pulls DeMario Jackson away from a walk on the beach later on that same day. Shortly after, viewers can see crewmembers walking away from set leaving the cast completely confused about what is going on.

Tonight, viewers will see the cast return after a two-week halt, excluding Corinne and DeMario.

The second episode of Bachelor in Paradise’s two-night season premiere airs tonight at 8|7c on ABC.
