Padma Lakshmi On 30 Rock: Exotic And Robotic

November 11th, 2009 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

Attention Padma pervs fans! Hollyscoop reports the Top Chef host will guest on 30 Rock Thursday as herself.



Stills released from Padma’s guest stint suggest she’ll be sharing some screen time with Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy, with her bringing the cleavage and Baldwin bringing the funny. But what exactly will their relationship be, Hollyscoop wonders?

Could she be the next love interest? Guess Donaghy has a thing for beautiful exotic women!

“Exotic” women?

Perhaps Hollyscoop’s making this assessment based on the fact that Donaghy’s last love interest was played by Salma Hayek, and by “exotic” they mean “brown”? Because there’s nothing “exotic” about Padma. Unless Hollyscoop means “exotic” as in rare (but really, that language is for the birds). And as a life-sized robot–robotic does rhyme with exotic–who was designed by her engineers to look flawless in the buff, who somehow manages to digest human food, sports a shockingly human-like scar on her right arm, and speaks in the most geographically-unspecific but nevertheless pleasingly-lazy drawl, Padma is rare indeed.

    As an exotic male, I find there is nothing exotic about her (hahaha).

    Since there are more Asians on earth, isn’t everyone else exotic?
