B.J. Novak Responds to Ex Mindy Kaling’s Marriage Epiphany on Watch What Happens Live: Video

Novak and Kaling shippers — get ready for even more feels! B.J. Novak responded to ex Mindy Kaling's recent epiphany that she would have married the actor during Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, Sept. 30.

"I thought it sounded to me like an honest and heartfelt account to a complicated and mostly wonderful relationship," Novak, 35, told host Andy Cohen.

The Mindy Project star, 35, wore her heart on her sleeve as she discussed in depth her relationship with Novak during an interview with Howard Stern on Sept. 15. She admitted that Novak was a "great love" and that she would have married him.

"The highlight of that for me was my mom calling me to pry. 'So, what do you think of what Howard was saying? Sounded pretty interesting to me,'" Novak explained on WWHL. "Like Howard Stern would somehow end up to my mom's sort of gentle harangue as, 'When are you getting your life together?'"

Novak and Kaling met in 2005 when they both wrote and starred on the American version of The Office. Like her character Kelly Kapoor (the real-life BFFs were each other's love interests on the show) Kaling was an open book while chatting with Stern — even discussing how good Novak was in bed.

WWHL's Cohen kept the conversation P.G., but did point out that Novak's mom must have learned new intimate details about the couple's romantic years. 

"I suppose she did," the Book with No Pictures author said with a blush. "We're adults at this point, but now that you are mentioning it, yes it's a little awkward."
