Padma Lakshmi Is Leaving “Top Chef” After 17 Years

June 2, 2023 / Posted by:

Deadline reports that Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi is leaving the show after 17 years and 19 seasons! The news comes as a total shock to Top Chef-heads like myself, who assumed Padma would be cooly judging Quickfires while serving effortless FASHUN until her dying day. But at least fans can breathe a big sigh of relief that it wasn’t Tom Colicchio. I truly don’t know what we’d do if we lost sexy, sexy Tom.

Open Post: Hosted By Padma Lakshmi Saying She Eats 8,000 To 9,000 Calories A Day While Filming “Top Chef”

The other night, Padma Lakshmi went on  Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and she and Jimmy Kimmel got to talkin’ about her new Sports Illustrated photo shoot. Entertainment Tonight reports that Padma told Jimmy that she would’ve killed for the opportunity as a twenty-something model, but now, at age 52, the prospect of posing in a bikini totally freaked her out.  Padma says she immediately thought, “I gotta go to the gym!” Fortunately, she was already hitting the gym hard cuz she was trying to work off the weight she’d gained while filming the latest season of Top Chef. Jimmy asked how many calories Padma eats while filming Top Chef, and she answered “8 or 9,000 calories a day. Easily!” Big whoop, I can eat 9,000 calories in one sitting (when I’m blackout drunk and feasting on Mcdonald’s).

Victoria Beckham Defended Brooklyn Beckham’s Rare Roast Beef On Instagram

January 6, 2023 / Posted by:

I’m sure Victoria Beckham couldn’t be any more proud of her son, Brooklyn Beckham, for not only keeping up with his pandemic hobby for two entire years, but also for making a career for himself out of it. To think, had Brooklyn taken up drinking too much and masturbating in the middle of the day like the rest of us, instead of learning how to cook; well, he’d be broke and bloated with a raw pee-pee/woo-woo like the rest of us. Instead, his business is thriving. So much so he’s had to bring on help! And not just in the kitchen. We all know that the concepts of “dining” and “cuisine” were heretofore foreign to Victoria, but now that they are the only things separating Brooklyn from reaching his full potential and professional destitution, she’s had to step out of her comfort zone to defend Brooklyn against charges of under-cooking a roast of beef in his latest tutorial sizzle reel.

Padma Lakshmi Defends Filming “Top Chef” In Texas As Other Productions Refuse To Shoot There

September 23, 2021 / Posted by:

Earlier this month, the Governor of Texas Greg Abbott signed the Texas Heartbeat Act, a ban on abortion after the six-week mark. The THA makes it possible for any regular person to snitch on and sue anyone performing or facilitating these illegal abortions. To put it mildly, it’s all kinds of fucked up. And so because of this some Hollywood productions have decided not to put money into the state and have refused to film there. This happened to Georgia in 2019 when the state banned most abortions after six weeks, and several productions pulled filming and moved to other states, with others saying they wouldn’t begin shooting in Georgia until that law was changed. Now it’s Texas’ turn for a little boycott, but not everyone is interested in moving elsewhere. Top Chef recently announced that their upcoming 19th season will be filmed in Houston, Texas. Naturally, some people really weren’t feeling that. But Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi piped up and explained that everyone should chill because what they’re doing at Top Chef is good, not bad.
