Mindy Kaling is enjoying success as a writer, producer and star of her own show The Mindy Project, but the actress is also dealing with the heartbreak of losing her mother to pancreatic cancer last year.
"She was the love of my life," Kaling tells fellow TV writer and star Lena Dunham, who spoke with Kaling for an interview with Rookie for Rookie: Yearbook Two, via RollingStone.com.
"I would say that my mother is the single biggest role model in my life, but that term doesn't seem to encompass enough when I use it about her," she says.

That tongue just keeps on creating controversy for Miley Cyrus, whose latest revelations will surely set everyone else's wagging.
"I think weed is the best drug on earth," Cyrus, 20, tells Rolling Stone. "One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon. Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs – social drugs."
The magazine cover gal, whose engagement to Liam Hemsworth ended earlier this month, doesn't stop there.

For the past week, all eyes have been on Miley Cyrus as she faces the spotlight in the wake of her split from ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth. Inquisitive fans are searching for clues as to what went wrong – especially in the star's music.
But in a new interview with Rolling Stone, the singer admits that a moment in her controversial video for "Wrecking Ball," in which she appears completely nude, came about not because of her relationship with Hemsworth, but because of her pets.
"That was real," Cyrus tells the interviewer of the close-up in which she sheds a tear. "My dog just passed away."

Last September, Billie Joe Armstrong made headlines when, during his band Green Day's performance at the I Heart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas, the rocker unleashed a profanity-laced tirade that took aim at everyone from the concert's promoter, Clear Channel, to Justin Bieber.
The meltdown forced Armstrong to enter an outpatient rehab program for a month and in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the frontman, who turned 41 this month, reveals his struggle to get sober.
"I'm a blackout drinker," he reveals. "That's basically what happened [that night]."

Why does Taylor Swift avoid Google?
Because she would risk clicking on rumors like this one: that she so missed her 18-year-old boyfriend Conor Kennedy that she "kidnapped" him from his high school and flew him to Nashville on her private jet.
"How did I kidnap him?" Swift, 22, exclaims to Rolling Stone when told about the rumor du jour. "You can't kidnap a grown man! These are serious accusations, now!"
Laughing, she adds: "It's an interesting way to spin something into a story. ... See, this is why I don't read stuff."

Taylor Swift has never confirmed whether her song "Dear John" is about John Mayer, but the musician certainly thinks it is – and he's not a fan.
"It made me feel terrible," Mayer, 34, tells Rolling Stone in its latest issue.
"Because I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do."
