Page Six says that understated gold digger and host of Top Chef Padma Lakshmi and the Dalai Lama’s homeboy Richard Tiffany Gere have been casually bumping nipples while he’s shooting a movie called Time Out Of Mind in NYC. The 64-year-old zen silver fox is currently in the middle of divorcing his second wife Cary Lowell and 43-year-old Padma dated billionaire Teddy Forstmann until he died of brain cancer in 2011. Page Six’s source says that Padma and Richard are keeping it casual right now, so they’re not exactly sharing a toothbrush after they suck on each other’s down low parts.
“They have been quietly spending some time together. It is all very new and recent, and happened while he has been filming in New York.”
A source at UsWeekly co-signs what Page Six’s source said.
Padma lives in NYC with her 3-year-old daughter Krishna whom she made with Adam Dell. She was married to Salman Rushdie for three years.
These two together makes TOO much sense and I’m surprised it took them this long to start humping on each other. Richard Gere’s nipples throb for seasoned model types with a strong jawline that could crack open a coconut and if Padma doesn’t pull white pubes out of her teeth after blowing a dude, she’s not fucking with him full-time. They’re perfect for each other and will probably go all the way. We’ll know if things are really serious if on a future episode of Top Chef, Padma tells the chefs that for their Quickfire Challenge they have to make an amuse-bouche using dead gerbils that are covered in Crisco and some kind of weird jelly.
