Mindy Kaling had a fling with an Obama aide that lasted a year--but she's not telling anyone anything about him, other than his first name--Will. This is just one of the revelations the star of The Mindy Project makes in her new book, Why Not Me?

In her book, Mindy Kaling goes into great detail about the romance she had with President Obama's aide. She talks of how Will took her on a tour of the White House and how they attended some of Washington, D.C.'s "hottest parties." She even gives details on nights of passion with the so-called "Will."

Even though Kaling doesn't divulge Will's last name, she describes him in fairly intricate detail. She shares that he's tall with blonde hair and that he wears glasses. She says he's a Tennessee native, an Ivy League graduate (University of Pennsylvania), and that he travels "everywhere with the president." She reportedly met Will at a fundraiser President Obama attended in New York.

"Will spent the night. The next morning when he was leaving, he was so shy and adorable in my foyer, that when I closed the door, I covered my mouth with my hand to stifle my scream," Mindy Kaling writes in her book.

"Will and I continued to text and e-mail, and would try to see each other, but it never seemed to crystallize into anything more," Kaling adds. " … All I had to do now was move on. In the words of both Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift, I knew I could shake it off."

Mindy Kaling covers lots of other topics in her new book, but none are quite as enthralling as the story of Will.

Will you be picking up a copy of Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling to see if you can get the whole scoop on Will the White House aide?
