Bossy was all prepared to do an innocent post about how Top Chef host and cookbook author Padma Lakshmi is pregnant, and about how Bossy and her daughter can finally be all, “Told you!” because they have been all something is weird with Padma this season, but Bossy was interrupted from her innocent Padma pregnancy post by the following photo:
Lingerie and chinese spare ribs. Makes total sense. Because they go together, sort of like a cookbook author and a serious career. That’s OK, we’re all allowed one ill-advised photo. And then Bossy found this:
And Bossy knows what you’re thinking. You’re all, But Bossy, she was married to Salman Rushdie, she must be smart.
Speaking of ex-husbands, Padma has not yet announced the baby daddy, but Chinese food delivery man? Bossy is looking at you.

Ok , so you found out. Yes its me, anybody got a problem with that???
tuesday saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:06 am
I don’t know what is worse, looking like a zombie while licking cake batter off your arm, or wearing a see through copper dress in public.
Jeri saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:07 am
When I saw her in that blue satin dress with a sideways shot on the show’s commercial, I knew I saw a baby bump. She just didn’t look right. I wasn’t surprised to hear she was preggers.
3limes saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:09 am
Well, that just sums up my life, right there. Licking chocolate batter in a white t-shirt, make up impeccable, million dollar hair. Yup. Not at all frizzy and frazzled and hot and dusty. You might find me sucking a mango but I am pretty sure it would smudge my lipstick.
Daisy saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:14 am
Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Good stuff.
thatgirlblogs saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:14 am
sitting in bed right now with some baby back ribs, ready to start my day.
BH saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:14 am
don’t you mean BETTER?!
Carrie saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:15 am
I’ll give it to Padma… she’s hot. The bitch. 😉

Miss Spoken saysOctober 14, 2009 at 11:25 am
Is there some kind of ghost globe floating out of frame that she’s staring at that the rest of us can’t see?
The Domestic Goddess saysOctober 14, 2009 at 11:31 am
I love it when models get fat.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysOctober 14, 2009 at 11:43 am
Good Lord. My husband walked by as I was reading this and said “Now, THAT’S how you eat ribs!!”
Reeb saysOctober 14, 2009 at 11:55 am
She is not smiling with her eyes. Tyra would disapprove.
Wonder what foods she’ll crave.
Martie saysOctober 14, 2009 at 1:31 pm
At first I was interested. Then I was hungry. Then I was just, just…Oh, man! Ewwww.
Martie saysOctober 14, 2009 at 1:33 pm
Pamela saysOctober 14, 2009 at 2:09 pm
You know you’d have paid a dollar at least to be the baby daddy.
Tasha saysOctober 14, 2009 at 2:12 pm
Wow, y’all, there are some really nasty responses here. Her sex life is none of your business, and catty remarks to that effect are absolutely unnecessary.
Domestic Goddess (in training) saysOctober 14, 2009 at 2:15 pm
After the cake batter foreplay, I would guess Duncan Hines beat out the delivery boy!
txsjewels saysOctober 14, 2009 at 2:22 pm
guess tasha is a big padma fan.
of course, padma’s obviously a total hottie (and quite the little serious batter-licker, huh?) but thinking about her sleeping with salmon rushdie… makes me feel better about my sucky single life!
Lori saysOctober 14, 2009 at 3:31 pm
This kind of stuff makes me so sad. How can a beautiful, professional woman think that taking these kinds of pictures sends any positive message. It’s hard to explain to your daughter that beauty and brains should be enough; you don’t have to take soft porn pictures, too. Gag.
goblinbox saysOctober 14, 2009 at 5:35 pm
If I were young and beautiful, I would not marry ugly old guys even if they were, like, total literary geniuses. Because HELLO! If I were young and beautiful, I could totally have HOT MEN.
Pop and Ice saysOctober 14, 2009 at 8:34 pm
My husband was all “What?” and “What?!!!” so I had to send your link. So now Mr. Pop and Ice will be reading Bossy.
DemMom saysOctober 14, 2009 at 8:59 pm
Is that really Salman Rushdie?
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysOctober 14, 2009 at 9:21 pm
I think she’s expecting a babyback.
sugarpie saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:04 pm
If I were young and beautiful and smart (and hungry!) I would totally dress like her and sit for these photos. Seriously, who’s exploiting who?
I think she’s absolutely in on the joke.
Happily Employed Susan saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:29 pm
I like Padma.
wendy saysOctober 14, 2009 at 10:48 pm
padma’s preggers and everyone else is emotional here! i personally hope they have loads of butt/side shots as she gets bigger and bigger this season on Top Chef.
i was kinda hoping all the seasons of food tasting got to her hips finally, but a baby can be nice, too.
Hunter saysOctober 15, 2009 at 8:04 am
So… uh… are these photos in her cookbook? I’m just asking because I think I could use to learn some cooking techniques. (Yeah, that’s it.)
Oh she knows exactly what she’s doing, and I don’t blame her one bit. I guess she didn’t have the talent to cure diseases, or make a bundle in high finance. So exploiting her natural talents was a nice backup. I’d do it if I could.
But the Salman Rushdie photo just depresses a guy like me out on my own. I mean, could *I* score with hotties if I stopped working out, had my hair fall out, and insulted a major religion? Just wondering…
Rebecca saysOctober 15, 2009 at 9:34 am
She has seemed a little cranky this season. Normally she is more upbeat. Mystery solved a mini-chef is on the way!
David saysOctober 15, 2009 at 12:19 pm
“Chinese food delivery man?”
That is so Tales of the City.
Owengirl79 saysOctober 15, 2009 at 1:13 pm
I think the pics are photoshopped.
I totally knew she was preggers when she was drinking water instead of wine on Top Chef!
goblinbox saysOctober 15, 2009 at 2:00 pm
@hunter: “But the Salman Rushdie photo just depresses a guy like me out on my own. I mean, could *I* score with hotties if I stopped working out, had my hair fall out, and insulted a major religion? Just wondering…”
I bet you could!

Those posts are probably what got her the Top Chef gig…

She is a very very smart woman.
V. saysOctober 15, 2009 at 5:25 pm
Lord she’s beautiful. Wish I looked that good with food on my face.
Leah saysOctober 15, 2009 at 7:09 pm
Thank God we ARE here to judge!
Hunter saysOctober 15, 2009 at 7:20 pm
To Goblinbox: Thanks! Woo hoo! No more getting up at 5:30 to run or lift weights. I’m sleeping late and hitting the keyboard!
Dingo saysOctober 15, 2009 at 8:56 pm
She’s either in a food coma or they’ve replaced her eyes with American Doll eyes because that pic of her licking the cake batter off her hand is seriously disturbing. I expect George Romero will cast her in his next film about the consumerization (yes, it is a word, I just used it didn’t I?!) of eating.
helenel saysOctober 15, 2009 at 10:23 pm
So, no one has seen this? It’s been on TV here in New England, and we don’t even have that restaurant.
Padma Lakshmi for Carls, Jr.:
josh saysOctober 15, 2009 at 10:37 pm
I am hardxxxcore craving Chinese food. My hankering is sooo bad for it that I would totez [read as: almost] let the delivery man impreggerz me for a scoop of beef & broccoli and a swallow of wanton soup!
Avitable saysOctober 16, 2009 at 7:53 am
Oh I love Padma!
foolery saysOctober 20, 2009 at 1:09 pm
Have no idea about this woman but it appears Salman Rushdie is the true sell-out here.
Though who could blame him? Few would kick her out of bed for eating ribs.
Kelly saysOctober 20, 2009 at 4:51 pm
It bettah not be Tom Colicchio!
