TIFFANY HADDISH AND BRAD PITT MAY BE A THING IN 2019: Let's make this happen, people! Tiffany Haddish and Brad Pitt made a pact in an elevator recently to hook up if they're still single in 2019. “Oh I just met him an the elevator, he said in one year if he’s single and I’m single we gonna do it, so you know what that means,” Haddish told Kelly Ripa backstage at the Oscars. “But he do got seven kids, I don’t know if I could deal with a man that’s got that many kids.” When Ripa asked who she'd marry, date or dash, she said: “I would date Brad Pitt, marry George Clooney and I would ditch Javier [Bardem] because I don’t know who Javier is,” Haddish said.

MINDY KALING AND B.J. NOVAK SPARK ROMANCE RUMORS: Office alums Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak attended the Oscars together, and the Internet cannot contain itself, pointing to several instances of palpable sexual tension in the photographs of them from the pre-and-post-parties. The pair have been friends for a loooong time (since 2005), they've dated on and off throughout the years, and have managed to remain friends. Recently, when Kaling welcomed her little girl and refrained from making the identity of the father public, many speculated/hoped that it was Novak. Kaling has spoken out on their unusual relationship before, telling InStyle in 2015: “I will freely admit: my relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell. He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend. I guess you could describe our relationship as a ‘romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments,’ but I don’t think Facebook would accept this as a new status.”
