Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi has come down with a case of the babies. Padma’s rep confirms the news to UsWeekly. They said this:
“Model, author, and Emmy-nominated Padma Lakshmi confirms that she is carrying her first child after years of struggling with endometriosis, a cause for which she has co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America. As a result of her condition, this pregnancy has been referred to by her physician as nothing short of a medical miracle, and due to its delicate nature, we ask/implore the press to respect Ms. Lakshmi’s privacy at this time.”
This is why publicists are hilarious. “Model, author, and Emmy-nominated….” HA! The next time I’m at Starbucks and they ask my name, I’m going to say, “Slut, whore, and cunt Michael K.”
The rep wouldn’t say who the father is, but knowing Padma the dude has grey pubic hairs and is richer than Beyonce’s weavemaster (I’m looking at you, Tom Colicchio).
And you better believe that on the next season of Top Chef, the challenges will include making an amuse bouche for toddlers, a trio of baby food and a 4-course meal out of pickles and ice cream.
