Padma Lakshmi: Page Six Sexy

The beautiful Padma Lakshmi gets personal on the cover of Page Six magazine, available Thursday (December 3) inside the New York Post.

The 39-year-old Top Chef hostess, who’s expecting a baby next year but hasn’t revealed the father yet, opened up about being recognized, going easier on her body during her pregnancy and refusing only to eat low-cal foods.

On being recognized: “I went to a bar mitzvah on the Upper East Side last year, and not to toot my own horn, but I might as well have been Michael Jackson to these 13-year-old boys and girls. There were something like 30 children around me, and they were all practically hyperventilating. I had this swarm of little kids going, ‘Oh, my god! Oh, my god!’ Kids are so authentic, so pure, and they’d be telling me, ‘My sister and I had an amuse-bouche contest, and we need you to tell us who should have won.’ I think that’s really cool.”

On going easier on her body during pregnancy: “One of the reasons I think I’ve gained weight pretty quickly during my pregnancy is that I’m not exercising as much as I do normally…I can’t. I’m feeling tired, and I have this business to run. You hope that with age, what you pay for in gravity, you gain in gravitas. I’m sure my thighs looked better when I was 25, but I think my mind is better today.”

On balancing diet and exercise: “You can eat and work out, or you can be the person who only eats a cucumber every day. I’d get really irritable if all I ate was a cucumber, so I have to work hard.”

    I think that the scar is the result of a car accident.

    Now, who’s the father and where did the arm scar com from??
    Dish the dirt!
    It’s funny, but I’ve noticed that alot of INDIAN women’s skin change color according to the light reflected on it or even the temperature. Their skin is very different from other ethnic skin. They also have diferent pigment within their skin color that is different from black/hisanic/middle eastern women. Also their hair is very different.

    This absolutely boring host of a semi-interesting reality show is so DESPERATE to be noticed and jump start a career. I can’t believe how hard she’s tried to milk something from her dumb Bravo job. Go away back to cooking. That at least gave you some legitimacy.
