The first photo of Padma Lakshmi’s 3 week-old daughter, Krishna Thea–taken while mother and child were hangin’ on a park bench in NYC–has been revealed on Celebrity Baby Blog.
Celebrity Baby Blog also reports that Padma has said she’d be “delighted” if her daughter became a chef, “as long as she was a good one.”
Hear that, little baby Krishna? NO PRESSURE.

It looks like Padma is going to have a baby girl!
And dayum. If that little baby grows up to look anything like mama, all of your kids are gonna need to lock up their husbands.
Padma Lakshmi tells Page Six Magazine this week, “I like me better naked.”
And we couldnt’ agree more. To be clear, the context of that comment is actually about being perceived as one’s genuine self:
“I don’t mean that in a vain way… When you put clothes on, you immediately put a character on. Clothes are adjectives, they are indicators. When you don’t have any clothes on, it’s just you, raw, and you can’t hide.“

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!
“Hello, World. Meet my pregnancy puppies. Pregnancy puppies, meet world. Consider these girls my gift to you. Drink them in. Eat them up. Move in a little closer. Uh, okay, that’s close enough, now you’re starting to perv me out and remind me of my creepy ex. Ahem, where was I? Oh right, I was introducing you to my glorious breasts. Can you imagine what these babies will look like when they’re brimming with milk? I mean, hello. Now there’s a Quickfire Challenge for you–what can you do in an hour with Padma’s breast milk? Ha! Like that’ll ever happen. You can look but you can’t touch. Actually, touch these boobs and I cut you. They’re as tender as a Kobe-strip right now and my hormones are all over the place. Jesus, what I wouldn’t give for a cold compress for these sore nipples. That and a vodka cocktail.”

Congratulasians are in order! The divine Padma Lakshmi has confirmed to Us Magazine that she is preggers at age 39, after a long struggle with Endometriosis. Endometriosis is a uterine tissue condition that is often associated with infertility; after being diagnosed herself, Lakshmi co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
We could not be more thrilled for Lakshmi, and wish her an awesome, weird, joyous, safe 9 months!
Seriously, though: If she maintains those stick arms and that skinny face and says stuff after the birth like, “It was so easy and comfortable! I’ve never felt more sexy or beautiful! My ankles never felt so thin! I certainly didn’t feel gassy or constipated or acne-prone or whale-like! I just love being pregnant!”–she’s going on our shit list.

Padma Lakshmi has a secret talent. In addition to her obvious ones, like rocking a huge scar, making food from Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. actually seem desirable, and looking good naked, the 38 year-old Top Chef robo-host is secretly FUNNY.
Although I’ve never seen evidence of this in the five seasons she’s hosted Top Chef, I cleverly deduced this when I learned that she’d signed a development deal to star in her own sitcom. And, you see, “sitcom” stands for “situational comedy.” And Comedy = Funny. So that must mean Padma = Funny, right?
What kind of funny do you think Padma is exactly? Sardonic funny, like Jon Stewart? Prop-comedy funny, like Carrot Top? (Okay, Carrot Top’s not funny.) Rape-joke funny, à la La Silverman?
Ooh, I just had a terrible thought. What if Padma’s not funny at all? Hmm…
Let’s go over this again together. She’s going to star in her own sitcom. Check. And sitcom stand for “situational comedy.” Check. And Comedy = Funny. Check. So that means Padma = Funny.
Phew! Glad I worked that one out. Padma = Funny, end of story.
Nothing says, “I’m attending a dreary event in D.C., and although I’m more fun to look at than Todd Palin and Rahm Emanuel, I still feel like a reality robot among Spielbergs and Stephanopouloses. By the way, I was once married to a respected author, so feel free to take me seriously…Oh my gaw is that President Obama??”

Why She’s a Babe: Although she elocutes like a robot–albeit a sensual femme-y one–and she often appears expressionless when she’s not smiling, Padma Lakshmi is undeniably hot. In the May issue of Allure Magazine, you’ll find her posing nude on a fuzzy Beni Ouarain rug looking like a glistening lobe of foie gras–in other words, delicious. Maybe not quite as delicious as when she’s got burger dripping all over her in those Carl’s Jr/Hardee’s ads, but pretty damn close.
Admittedly, I questioned Padma Lakshmi’s ability to whet my appetite in one of those vile, slobbery, ketchupy, digestive sound-filled Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s commercials.
Quite frankly, I was right. Not even Padma could make me hungry for a sloppy Bacon Western Thickburger, especially not by spilling and licking barbecue sauce/meat juice off of her calf. But I must say…
…she does have a truly special way with a burger. And I want to fuck that burger. I want to fuck that burger RIGHT NOW.

Thank you, Jasmine!

I guess we should be glad that a glorious, gorgeous, out-of-this-world, epicurean goddess like yourself would agree to do a commercial for a fast-food joint. Because even though you have a beating heart, two eyes… even though you drink, sleep, excrete, and screw, it’s hard for us to accept that you’re a real-live person, much less one of the people.
Okay, we can appreciate what’s going on here: the fact that you’ll soon be using that face to peddle sloppy burgers for Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. (same beast) brings you down to Earth. It shows us your lowest common denominator. It proves that processed meats and sesame seed buns are not just for the ignorant, saddle-bagged, Tuna Helper masses of Middle America, but also for famous, particular, beautiful, elegant TV hosts from Manhattan. It’s meant to show us that this famous author’s ex-wife is real, and for that matter, so is Hardee’s. Now everybody, rich or poor, finicky or not, has the ability to get real along with you. Yeah. That’s really lovely.
But Padma. We feel that despite the motivation, you’re better than this. You do not want to take career cues from Paris Hilton. We’ve watched enough Top Chef to know that these quick burgers are not up to your standards, even after a bottle of wine (trust us, we’ve eaten enough of them for anybody). More importantly, we’ve never actually seen a commercial of this ilk that made us want to even eat food–in fact, they almost always inspire waves of nausea and a lasting aversion to the sound of chewing.
Maybe your “beautiful love song to food” will be enough to change our minds. But at the moment, we’re hard-pressed to truly believe that.
When the dazzling, gorgeous Padma Lakshmi divorced her much-older husband Salman Rushdie, many were quick to gossip that the statuesque beauty was guilty of an affair. In my travels between LA and NYC, I’ve personally heard some first and secondhand accounts of her romantic dabbles, and while staying mum on all of those stories, I’ll just say, I believe that the odds that the whispers were true are… pretty good.
The one most people were interested way back when, however, was the rumor that Lakshmi was bouncing around with a married, well-known chef. Blind item after blind item nailed Lakshmi for this one, until Gawker finally supposed, for a while at least, that the culinary hero in question was–eek!–Anthony Bourdain.
I, on the other hand, had always held out the hope that the lovely Padma would only have surrendered her special parts to the boyish advances of Rocco DiSpirito–even though I’m not even sure he was married at the time of her detours. Though I could never exactly figure out why, I did.
Today, however, after reading that Match.com writer/relationship expert Whitney Casey recently spilled to Howard Stern that DiSpirito was the best lay she ever had and bearer of a “perfect penis”… I think “why” is now pretty clear.
