Say it ain’t so!

Our beloved Mindy Project is nearing its end, but E! News caught up with Mindy Kaling and the show’s costume designer, Salvador Perez, to talk fashion and final goodbyes.

“It’s getting a little sentimental and sad actually,” Kaling confessed about the last month of shooting.

However, fashion fans will certainly have something to look forward to during the show’s last hoorah. “Sal is pulling out all the stops for the last few episodes for costumes,” Kaling added.

In fact, while supporting Perez at his costume exhibit at the Paley Center last night, Kaling couldn’t help but think back to when she first convinced him to design costumes for the show.

“I’m a pretty ambitious person, and it was the same kind of dream that takes you to think that you can go from having a small part in The Office to having your own show…[I knew] we could we do a show that had so many incredibly gorgeously designed costumes that inspire so many young women,” she explained. “He’s so determined, I’m so determined and we worked really, really hard.”

Perez added, “She sold me on the idea. She was like, ‘I want this show to be inspirational. And I was like, ‘Oh I like this!'”

Still, it wasn’t easy for her to convince him to drop everything and join her.

“I was in the middle of Liz & Dick with Lindsay Lohan so you can imagine, I didn’t ever want to work anymore,” Perez laughed, adding, “I actually turned this job down several times…And [then] I met Mindy.”

She told him her view for the show, promising it would be way more than just lab coats and doctor’s offices and looking to “push the edge” for fashion in television. 

And it certainly did!

Perez said he thinks the fashion element of the show struck a chord with people because Kaling is not the “average actress size” and yet she “always looks impeccable.”

He explained, “I think that it’s shown to regular-sized girls across America that you can have fun with fashion no matter what size you are. And she really pushes fashion. I make sure that she always looks great, it’s about great fit.”

Needless to say, you can imagine what an emotional roller coaster working on the final season has been.

“We had our last read through [this week],” Perez revealed. “I read the final script a couple of times, and I cried for an hour afterwards.”

He continued, “Mindy has written the most beautiful script. It is the most beautiful finale. For the stories, they just wrap up. And you don’t get that emotion where it ends awkwardly. She just puts a nice little bow on this, and you’re just going to walk away satisfied, happy for everybody, and I am so excited for everybody to see this final episode.”

As for hiding Kaling’s pregnancy—which we confirmed last month—for the final few episodes, Perez noted that things are going well so far.

“She doesn’t show yet, but we have another four weeks of shooting. I’m hoping to get away with it, but yeah, I am buying lots of stretch. So far so good, fingers crossed!”

Well, we can’t wait to watch! The final seasons returns on Sept. 12 to Hulu.

Sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ … neither one is in any hurry to file divorce papers because they’re happy with the way things are right now. We’re told they’re definitely not getting back together, but are working together to be there for their 10-year-old son. As our source puts the situation … “Divorce isn’t on the horizon.” (TMZ)

Earlier the same month, Melo and La La reunited in New York City for Mother’s Day.

We got the exes heading into Neta, a sushi joint in the Village, and there’s nothing about the video that screams separated or bitter. Quite the contrary, both ‘Melo and La La were straight-faced, but walked in together — he even held the door for her — as they entered with 10-year-old Kiyan. Afterward, the modern fam also scooped up some fro-yo. As we’ve reported … both are committed to co-parenting Kiya through the split. Neither has filed divorce docs yet, but our sources say that’s a certainty. (TMZ)

Coldplay Postpones Houston Concert Due to Hurricane Harvey

rs_600x600-170825102547-600.coldplay.82517.jpg

Due to Hurricane Harvey, tonight’s Coldplay concert at NRG Stadium has been postponed.

Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin announced the news via Twitter. “We really wanted to play tonight, but sitting here all together watching the news about the storm, we feel that we can’t ask anyone to put their safety at risk,” they wrote. “So, sadly, we will have to postpone. We will give details of rescheduling/refunding as soon as we can. We are really sorry for the inconveniences this will cause. Stay safe and see you soon.”

Coldplay’s next stop on the A Head Full of Dreams tour is scheduled for Monday at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. The Grammy-winning group isn’t the only one taking Friday off; tonight’s Mary J. Blige concert at the Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land has been postponed until Sept. 19. Lady Antebellum‘s concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Sunday was also canceled “in the interest of fans safety”; refunds will be issued automatically.

Harvey is expected to be the worst hurricane to hit the Lone Star State in nearly two decades. The National Weather Service warned residents that the Category 3 hurricane could bring a potentially devastating storm surge, heavy rainfall and wind hazards to Texas’ coastal regions.

“There’s certainly someone at the helm. I think that we are in great shape having [General John Kelly] sitting next to [President Donald Trump] throughout this process, and probably no better chief of staff for the president during the hurricane season,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a press briefing Thursday. “The President has been briefed and will continue to be updated as the storm progresses, and certainly something he’s very aware of and will keep a very watchful eye on, and stands ready to provide resources if needed.”
