The second season of Bravo’s Top Chef kicks off Wednesday with another trophy wife as host. And how can they go wrong when she poses for pictures like the one above? Well, Padma Lakshmi may be a sexy model and actress who once wrote a cookbook, but she’s a serious type who’s known for flaunting a hideous scar on her arm, says she hates the reality genre– and just happens to be married to Salman Rushdie.
Sounds like the next TV superstar.
“I hate reality TV, I have to tell you,” the latest reality TV discovery tells the LA Times. “I think a lot of it brings out the worst common denominator of the human spirit.”Sexy Padma, of course, promises “a very high-caliber, high-brow food show. I didn’t want it to turn into some kind of schlocky reality piece of fluff that I would feel embarrassed about.”
We get it. Less Hell’s Kitchen, more Satanic Recipes.
Padma’s doing all she can to separate herself from last season’s host, mouth-breathing Katie Lee Joel, who probably had a hard time keeping hubby Billy Joel away from the cooking sherry. Katie Lee’s 32 years younger than Billy. Rushdie’s only got 23 years on Padma.
Padma should remember this is Project Runway with meat cleavers. And for the contestants’ sake, she ought to keep Rushdie away from the set– and make sure the recipes are non-fatwa-ing.
