In my fantasy world, Beyonce wrote “Girls Who Run The World” for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. (Mindy Kaling)

Not to belabor the Amy Poehler of it all, but I’ve always really admired her marriage to Will Arnett. I remember at the Parks and Recreation premiere four years ago, Amy was looking for her husband toward the end of the night. She stopped by me and a couple of the other Office writers who had scammed invites to the party.
Amy: Hey guys. Have you seen Arnett? I can’t find him.
We didn’t know where he was, and she shook her head good-naturedly, like, “That guy,” and went on looking for him. I had never heard a woman call her husband by his last name, like she was a player on the same sports team Will was on. You could totally tell that Will and Amy are pals."
In her book, Kaling tries to set the record straight about what she does and doesn’t share with Kapoor with separate lists of “Things Kelly would do that I would not” (fake a pregnancy for attention; write a letter of support to Jennifer Aniston) and “Things Kelly and I would both do” (go to goop.com every day; choreograph and star in a music video).
