HOW IL­LU­MI­NAT­ING: Let’s give credit to where credit is due— and, in the case of the fa­mous Di­wali episode of “The Of­fice,” Mindy Kal­ing is get­ting all of it. The Cam­bridge na­tive just re­vealed she was be­hind the iconic Sea­son 3 episode as she shared well-wishes with fans cel­e­brat­ing the Hindu fes­ti­val on Wed­nes­day. “Fun Fact... I wrote this episode of #TheOf­fice,” the Cam­bridge na­tive shared in an In­sta­gram story. In ad­di­tion to pro­vid­ing mem­o­rable stills from the 2006 air­ing, the show’s alum gushed, “I love this episode and ev­ery­thing it stands for.” COM­MON COUR­TESY: Rap­per and so­cial ac­tivist Com­mon gave a spe­cial shout-out to the Bay State’s own Ayanna Press­ley af­ter her vic­tory speech on Wed­nes­day. The artist, who re­cently spent time in Bos­ton film­ing the ac­tion movie “Eve,” posted a se­ries of In­sta­gram pho­tos to con­grat­u­late re­cent elec­tion win­ners — and he put Press­ley front and cen­ter. “From Ayanna Press­ley be­ing elected as the first Black con­gress­woman from Mas­sachusetts,” he wrote, “to Sharice Davids and Deb Haa­land be­ing elected as the first Na­tive Amer­i­can women in Congress, the 2018 Midterm Elec­tions were his­toric and will lead us on a path to build­ing a more in­clu­sive govern­ment that re­flects the ex­cel­lence and di­ver­sity of our na­tion. Salute to these trail­blaz­ers on be­ing the ‘first’ and coura­geously paving the way next.” Press­ley was elected to the U.S. House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, run­ning un­op­posed ear­lier this week af­ter she de­feated in­cum­bent Michael Ca­puano dur­ing the state pri­mary in Septem­ber. FEEL­ING GOOD: Michael Bu­ble just an­nounced he’s end­ing his hia­tus from per­form­ing with a new tour, and his 27-city sched­ule of shows will in­clude a stop in Worces­ter. The Gram­my­win­ning singer stepped out of the spot­light af­ter his son Noah, 5, was di­ag­nosed with can­cer a cou­ple of years ago. But now, Bu­ble is kick­ing off his “Don’t Be­lieve the Ru­mors” tour, which likely ref­er­ences re­cent spec­u­la­tion that he was hang­ing up his mi­cro­phone for good. Bu­ble will be tak­ing the stage at the DCU Cen­ter on Feb. 26, with tick­ets to the show avail­able for sale start­ing Nov. 19 at 10 a.m. through Tick­et­mas­ter. The tour co­in­cides with the Nov. 16th re­lease of his new al­bum, “love.”
