Padma Lakshmi: Endometriosis Foundation Blossom Ball!

Padma Lakshmi wears a colorful sari to the Endometriosis Foundation of America‘s 3rd Annual Blossom Ball on Friday (March 18) at the New York Public Library in NYC.

The 40-year-old Top Chef host was joined by Susan Sarandon and Bridget Moynahan on the red carpet.

Padma, who has spoken out about struggling with endometriosis, a gynecological condition that’s been associated with infertility, co-founded EFA to help raise awareness about the disease.

Earlier in the day, Padma grabbed lunch at Da Silvano with her adorable 1-year-old daughter Krishna.

Padma has what all East Indian lust for, a pale skinned child by a white colonizer. India is the skin bleaching capitol of the universe and they discriminate and practice racial apartheid against their own people. In India dark brown skin is seen as an impairment. My mother plastered my face with a paste of flour, lemon and milk–her very own skin-lightening cream. Bollywood and the South Asian media are the worst purveyors of self hate amongst the East Indian communities around the world.

@Anusha
There is no East India only India. That was coined by Christopher Colon to distinguish from West Indies because he made a mistake.

‘Padma has what all East Indian lust for’.

Please don’t make such sweeping statements. Perhaps your mother lusted for it and many others but you cannot speak for an entire population. It would be the equivalent of saying all people in the US lust for war on foreign countries. Wouldn’t be true of entire population.

Love Padma and am so happy to see how fab she is looking after having a baby. That is really something to be proud of, especially as she is 40. Amazing.

katie-elle @ 03/20/2011 at 1:13 pm

padma is talentless, narcissistic, and above all ridiculously PRETENTIOUS.

Padma daughter is half white that why she looks the way she does her father is Adam Dell the brother to the guy that owns Dell computers.

WOW!I can’t get over how old bridget looks!she USED TO be beautiful.she is not aging well at all.

@harris

brazilian girl use your own name and not the name of one who supports Bridget. Read the herald much?????

She only wanted a child by a rich white American. Salman Rushdie wanted children with her they were together for years but she nixed that idea in the bud. I hate her. She won’t allow the father to see his child but she demands large child support payments from him.

MangerBouger @ 03/20/2011 at 2:40 pm

She doesn’t know how to wear a sari… she should’ve asked for help.

Reply to Grewal.

Padma has repeatedly said that she is not seeking any child support from the father of Krishna, so not sure what your sources are. Also, how on earth can you justify a comment such as ‘She only wanted a child by a rich white American’ ; since when are you privy to what goes on in her head! If you hate her, fair enough. But don’t MAKE UP LIES and pose them as fact.

Mindy Kaling Says... @ 03/20/2011 at 4:58 pm

She claims her child is Indian when she looks nothing like the average Indian. She named her krishna and will dress her in Sari’s and force the child to think she is Indian. Padma would have left her in the hospital if the child had been brown. Indians are the most self hating idiots on earth and the worship the British. This woman is worst than most. Yuk!

Wow, this whole page is just a racist rant.
Is it impossible for you people to comment on a picture of a person of a different ethnicity without throwing around racist comments?

Grow up and stop being so freaking ignorant.

Lyla Says @ 03/20/2011 at 8:47 pm

@ Mindy Kaling. Don’t use Mindy’s name to sling dirt; although I am sure you’re right. Padme isn’t as bad as Halle Berry who claims Nahla is black (how patronizing?)

Anyway, Padme’s baby may turn out browner in the future. Usually, babies get darker as they age.

Cute baby! :)

@Mindy Kaling Says…: I am wondering if you have EVER been to India…. It is a wonderful country with a wonderful culture that was forced to be “european” because of the English colonization . How ignorant…

The Queen @ 03/21/2011 at 9:50 am

Don’t blame the British because they never tried to turn India European they tried to abolish the caste system and stop the burning of widows when their husbands died. India is socially backward and racially retarded and they were that way well before the British arrived on its shores.

@The Queen:

It’s only socially backwards because of Europeans and Islamic invaders. Yes the British did try to turn Indians European. The worst thing British did they distorted Indian history invented lies of Aryan invasion, caste system, and other things. Actual Indian caste system is called Varna and all it was, was people were sorted into different jobs based on their natural born qualities. It has nothing to do with race & color that was a British lie. And burning of widows? That started because Islamic invaders were taking Hindu women as slaves & converting them to Islam. The Hindu women would willingly kill themselves on their husbands pyres to avoid being taken away by the muslim invaders. English were poor before coming to India. They stole Indian gold & built their country with Indian riches. Example is the Kohinoor worth like $15 billion dollars. England refuses to give it back its in their queen’s crown today.
I’m not saying India is perfect, sure it had its problems, but why do you colonizers deny every claim & don’t take responsibility for anything? I’m sure you would even try to justify the colonization of the Americas and what you did to Native American people. You would try to justify colonization all over the world wouldn’t you? You are not being blamed for what your ancestors did, but atleast don’t defend them if they were in the wrong.
