Padma Lakshmi Talks Boob Flashing in New Orleans
The Top Chef host says she'd bare it all for milkshakes.
New Orleans—the location of the spicy upcoming season of Top Chef—is known for more than fabulous food and music. As Andy Cohen reminded us on last night's Watch What Happens Live, the Big Easy is also famous for "heavy drinking and boob flashing." So in the spirit of Mardi Gras, where ladies show off their goodies in exchange for beads, Cohen designed a little game for guest Padma Lakshmi called Mardi Gras or Mardi Nah.
Would Lakshmi get half-naked for a greasy burger? "I might, depending on who's holding it."
What about her Top Chef colleague Gail Simmons? "Definitely," Lakshmi says, noting she's "always flashing her between scenes."
Poodles and sweet breads wound up on the cooking guru's "no" list, while milkshakes snuck into the "yes" column. Don't ask her about weed (she gave Andy the equivalent of "no comment") or offer her squid without being specific: "How is it grilled," she asked.
