This one, however, is delightful: a budding relationship between comedy queen Mindy Kaling, 37, and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, 47. "I can't believe he came.I guess anything to get out of Newark, huh?" Kaling made headlines this week for accepting a cute dinner invitation from Sen. He tweeted at Kaling, sending her the link of a recent Newark travel guide published by Vogue - and told her he still loved her.
Mindy Kaling is heading to Newark for a dinner date with Senator Cory Booker! Booker, ever the gentlemen, offered to spring for a Lyft for the actress.
And Booker, it seems, wasn't about to take the insult lying down.
Check out their flirty exchange of tweets!

An official who spoke with media Saturday said there's no information that suggests the two incidents have any connection. Police do not believe there are additional suspects and the matter is not being treated as an active shooter situation.
"Ouch! @MindyKaling, heard Dr. Lahiri dissed Newark last night ..."
"He responded rather quickly and candidly but sweetly asked her out on a date in Newark" you're making my day, and if the love is really mutual, come have a date with me in Newark".
"Senator, if Mindy Lahiri shades it, it means we know it's cool".
Much to the collective surprise - and glee - of Twitter, Kaling accepted. "Yes", she said. "Now let me get the PATH train schedule". "PATH train is awesome when you are Jersey bound". The conversation between the two began after Booker commented on a "diss" he received courtesy of Kaling's Hulu show The Mindy Project.
