See Her Tonight
Padma Lakshmi on Hollywood Game Night
(9 PM EST, NBC)
It’s a great night f or gals on television, with the cast of Castle investigating high-fashion murder and the lesbianic Lost Girl featuring a triple-threat guest cast of semi-regulars Mia Kirshner, Ali Liebert, and Emmanuelle Vaugier. And yet here your See Her Tonight column is making a big deal over the cornball Hollywood Game Night–but, you know, it’s not often that we get to treat Padma Lakshmi like a guest star.
In fact, we’re considering this to be a Very Special Episode of Hollywood Game Night–even if it is the second of two episodes airing tonight. We have Padma Lakshmi and Michelle Trachtenberg goofing around in tonight’s celebrity games. That makes for double distractions, so it’s a good thing nobody invited us over to play. Those two would be doing a fine job at charades, and we’d just sit there saying, “‘Boobies?’ This has something to do with boobies, right?”
Anyway, for those who don’t know about such things, Padma Lakshmi is a culinary type who just stumbled into being one of the biggest sex symbols in the reality-television biz. She was already an official big deal as a cookbook author when she joined the Bravo network for Top Chef. Plenty of guys were soon tuning in for a double-serving of Padma’s curves. It wasn’t an unexpected twist for the India-born beauty. She had moved to California as a young gal, and was discovered by a modeling agency at the age of 18.
Padma was a big deal in the fashion industry by the time that she released her first cookbook in 1999. It wasn’t some cheap corporate cash-in, either. Padma soon proved that she was a serious culinary figure–with the kind of figure that had people taking her seriously when it came to nutrition. We’ve admired Padma’s nude pics in the past, but this is a good excuse to build an all-new gallery of sexy-but-SFW pics. Padma’s the kind of bright babe who’ll keep things going on Hollywood Game Night–but let’s check out the built bod that appeals to even non-foodies…
