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!

Giuliana Phone Home!(to Mama Depandi for pasta)

SOUND THE ALARM!! Call Steven Spielberg! The E! Channel stole ET FROM Universal Studios to co-host the Emmys red carpet show with Ryan Seacrest! We realize they are all part of the NBC/Universal family wouldn’t ET have at least been more appropriate for the Oscars on ET, not E!. Oh, wait, sorry, what was that? That WASN’T ET you say, that was Giuliana Rancic? Gosh sincerest apologies Mr Spielberg, false alarm, continue as you were. In the meantime, dear Giuliana – we realize jumping on every press opportunity that comes your way and squeezing every last media whoring morsel out your new child (who cares anyway) doesn’t leave much time for food, but we’re increasingly worried about you. You should take a leaf out of Lady Gaga’s book and eat your parent’s Italian food. Or is this actually a sly plot to come out as an anorexic next year for another press tour/reality show once the furor over the baby has died down? We wouldn’t put it past you Rancids
