Padma Lakshmi: Jack of All Trades?

Monday, January 26, 2009

Padma Lakshmi is launching a new jewelry line, inspired by “seeds and pods, like cardamom, lentils, and cloves" as well as Lakshmi's "Indian heritage." Hope her baubles are better than her Top Chef hosting abilities. Wonder if Salman will be buying this stuff for future paramours.

She annoys the bejesus out of me but I love Top Chef! Can't believe they booted Radhika. Racists.

"lentils"? gag me! i am so tired of indians trying to be all overly indian just to further some career!

i guess some people think it's better to be mediocre at lots and lots of things than to focus on being good at one. but yes she is unbelievable beautiful.

she drives me crazy, doesn't it seem like she is always on sedatives on top chef? and what qualifies her to host top chef anyway? a random "indo-inspired" cookbook or two? i am all for desi inclusion but something about her gives me the heebie jeebies. like she's half robot or something.

i bet her jewelry line will be pretty enough but who the hell is buying this sort of stuff right now?!?

everyone needs to calm down. so what if she annoys you. just for once can we NOT be cynical, jealous, angry, self hating? it's an indian woman doing something somewhat positive, at least nothing harmful or destructive. So what if she uses lentils in her jewelery? even though I don't find that representative of the vast culture of india in the least, is it harmful? let's be happy and encourage other brown women, instead of criticize them into dust. we don't always have to be our own worst enemies!!

The poster above is right I think. I mean, yes we should support our fellow Desis. But, above poster: She is so annoying! Can't we make a hater exception for her!!!!!!!

Is she serious? $600 - $6,600 dollars in THIS economy? And my friends, go to India, or an Indian jeweler where you can get the same pieces made, with more gold for less.

I never understood why qualifies her as a judge. She doesn't say anything original or enlightening. And I hate her VOICE! And I don't think she's that pretty. They should someone a little more personable and charming to host... like... FABIO!
