Top Chef Host Padma Laksmi has an appetite for Billionaires

What she lacks in the kitchen… she makes up for in the bedroom!

The poster girl for sleeping your way to the top, Padma Lakshmi apparently has more heat and drama in the bedroom than a Top Chef finale! Rumor has it she allegedly cheated on author Salman Rushdie with Harvey Weinstein to secure her Top Chef gig.

But that wasn’t enough for our dear Padma, whose social climbing appetite is voracious, and thus proceeded to go after billionaire Ted Forstmann, then venture capitalist, Adam Dell, of Dell computers fame, who fathered her child (she kept that one quiet for a while). It seems Padma is on the wrong Bravo show – she should host The Billionaire Matchmaker!

Is Baby Xander a mini X-Man?

We hear the set of X-Men First Class was more X-rated than the film itself!

Rumor has it blonde Brit Alice Eve got ousted from the role of Emma Frost after the director, Matthew Vaughn, felt she was too “heavy” for the role/costume plus (the real reason) he took an, ahem, special liking to January Jones who ultimately replaced Ms Eve. Let’s face it, while Miss Eve may not be exactly an Oscar worthy actress herself, Ms Jones attempted frosty line delivery left us in the cold.

Cue 9 months later, January gives birth to a baby boy who she names, coincidentally, Xander, and has still refused to announce the father. Could it be Mr Vaughn, who is still married to Claudia Schiffer (well her certainly has a type!) created a mini X-Man with his leading lady? It certainly doesn’t help quell suspicion that the baby is his spitting image. What is it with these married British directors getting with their American leading ladies??

Who Are You Kidding Nicole?

Rumor has it Nicole Kidman has not only one, but both of her daughters via a surrogate, allegedly her sister Antonia who happened to “disappear” around the time Nicole announced her first “pregnancy.“ Which means she toted around Beyonce’s favorite accessory, a fake baby bump for a few months. I guess these stars do like “method acting” approach when it comes to pulling the wool over the public’s eyes. Oh well, at least Nicole admitted it the second time around. Will Beyonce do the same or do we have to go through the “closer down hospital wing” charade again?

Taking Liberties!

Rumor has it the marriage of Kristen Stewart’s ex paramour, Rupert Sanders, has been on the rocks for quite sometime, and his now estranged wife Liberty Ross was already taking quite a few liberties herself when it came to monogamy. Sources say she was seeing English artist Anthony James on and off for over a year before her husband’s’ indiscretion. It has also been speculated that she herself was the one who tipped off the paparazzi in an attempt to gain back her former fame. Who is less than snowy white now Ms Ross?

Nothing LIVELY About Blake’s Acting!

Rumor has it movie producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti and Universal Studios casting director Jeff Gelber has tapped Blake Lively as the frontrunner to play Anastasia Steele’s best friend Kate Kavanagh in the highly anticipated movie adaptation of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ Um…WHY? Despite the usual critical savaging over her so called “acting” in Oliver Stone’sSavages,’ a continuously monotonous mumble delivery, and playing every role as a diffident California Girl, Blake remains on casting director’s wish lists. If anything, Blake should star in ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes,’ because we simply don’t get it. Do you?

But we to be fair, we would like to congratulate Blake on great work done in the nose and boob departments, and on her new role as a power beard to one of Hollywood’s hottest A-listers.
