The Mindy Project Exclusive: Maria Menounos Returns to Romance [Spoiler]!

MariaMMindyProjectDeslaurier brothers be damned: Maria Menounos is making her way back to The Mindy Project, and she’s got her sights set on a certain Schulman & Associates stud.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress/Extra host will once more play a fictionalized version of herself in a handful of the Fox rom-com’s upcoming episodes.

Menounos will return during Mindy‘s holiday episode, in which she’ll immediately steal the heart of Adam Pally‘s frat boy man, Peter. “There’s a big party in the office, and Peter’s dream woman (Menounos) shows up as one of the Deslauriers’ dates,” the Happy Endings vet teases.

As luck would have it, Peter’s crush eventually becomes something more (“It’s slowly evolving,” Pally reveals) — and he’s actually not as awful a boyfriend as one might assume. “Peter is one of those dudes that talks a bunch of s–t when he’s single, and then as soon as he has a girlfriend, he becomes the most whipped, doting, attentive boyfriend on the planet,” he laughs. “He’s a softie.”

“Maria is so awesome and so beautiful and so funny and nice,” a complimentary Pally says of his co-star. “I really liked doing scenes with her. She’s a great actress.”

Menounos first appeared on Mindy midway through Season 1 as a spokesmodel — one “made up of billions of cells and millions of feelings” — for the Deslaurier midwife practice.

    Dear GOD please… Enough with the stunt casting. I love this show but wish they’d focus on the amazing cast they have instead of guest star of the week.
