The blonde shared this photo with her close confidante (above), and revealed how she reacted to the scary news, writing in the caption:

"In the moment I first learned of Rayya's diagnosis, a trap door opened at the bottom of my heart (a trap door I didn't even know was there) and my entire existence fell straight through that door. From that moment forward, everything became about HER. I cancelled everything in my life that could be cancelled, and I went straight to her side, where I have been ever since."

But, the writer continued to say the upsetting diagnosis made her realize that she actually loved Miz Elias as more than just a best friend, adding:

While there are plenty of disturbing memories in the brave book, the Daily Mail obtained a particularly scary passage depicting a moment when Vargas got blacked out in a public park following a late-MORNING interview for 20/20 in July of 2012.

According to the mother of two, that morning she downed a bottle of wine to compensate for a terrible hangover. Upon leaving the office, she somehow ended up in a park incoherent and with "two sketchy guys" circling her.

Luckily for the news anchor, a good samaritan saved her from the terrible situation. Apparently the journalist managed to give her address to the concerned civilian before passing out.

In a follow-up interview with People Magazine, the 54-year-old went on to describe the aftermath in heartbreaking detail:

Mindy Kaling must be furious right now!

A little more than a year after Mindy's estranged brother Vijay Chokal-Ingam revealed his elaborate race hoax to get into medical school, he debuted his tell-all memoir detailing the scam.

In the first look at Almost Black, Vijay recalls how prestigious universities basically begged him to attend their institutions after he listed himself as black rather than Indian-American on his applications. The controversial author also went on to DRAG his famous sis for her alleged participation in the lies.

Before we get into the damning chapter, we need to review the CRAZY back story of this scandal. Seriously, we can't make this shizz up!

Essentially, Vijay applied to a bunch of med schools only to be waitlisted by all of them. Instead of trying again like most people would, V.C.I. cooked up the wild idea to depict himself as black on his applications while retaining the same academic profile as he had before.

Long story short, the plot worked and Vijay went as far to alter his appearance while attending UCLA. Mr. Ingam even joined the Organization of Black Students.

Following the insane story, Mindy's rep denied she had any knowledge of her brother's deception, a claim Vijay adamantly denies in the book preview. Apparently the comedienne was in on it the entire time!

According to the grad, Kaling advised him to not apply to Dartmouth, the college she attended at the time. Mindy allegedly expressed fears that people on campus would discover the hoax and it would jeopardize her beloved comic-strip, Badly Drawn Girl.

In a supposed conversation Mindy had with Vijay in an attempt to dissuade him from applying, she reasoned:

Talk about a good investment!

The former Glee star was so excited about her new implants, she even told her teachers! Isn't that kind of awkward?!

The 29-year-old wrote:

"I went around to all my teachers, told them I was going to be out. 'I'm getting plastic surgery!' I'd tell them gleefully… My art teacher was stoked – when I told her she said that she too had fake tits and that she was very excited for me."'

But don't get it twisted. The Cali-native didn't go under the knife because she wanted more male attention; she did it for her own self-esteem.
