According to a source who worked on the set of Top Chef, the ex-model turned trophy wife turned hostess Padma Lakshmi allegedly enjoys smoking pot on set, giving a whole new meaning to the term “Quickfire Challenge” — see, cause she’s allegedly lighting up a joint instead of a stove! Anyway. Exactly how often this happened is disputed, though we were assured it was allegedly “fairly regularly.”
But really, is this shocking? An addiction to marijuana would actually serve to explain a lot of strange Padma-related phenoms, such as:
- Her large appetite (remember, she’s an ex-model)
- Her detached, soulless vocal inflections
- Her insane outfit choices
- The strainge “itch” she got in the back of her throat during this week’s Hawaiian challenge
- Why she speaks soooo slooooowly
- Why she married Salman Rushdie
- Why she seems high all the time.
On second thought, that still doesn’t explain the outfits. Allegedly.
