Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi’s work is never done. The culinary queen headed up to Albany this week to hang out with boatload of kids from the Riverdale Middle School and continue her mission for teen health awareness. And from the looks of it, Padma left quite the lasting impression on the students and politicos she was there with. The Endometriosis Foundation of America, an organization Padma co-founded, tweeted out a photo of State Senator Jeff Klein and Lakshmi:
Padma and Senator Brad Hoylman apparently had a lot to talk about, and not just regarding teen health. According to Brad’s Twitter, Padma told him that she has rats in her East Village neighborhood!
Padma also left a lasting impression on Senator David Carlucci.
But after returning home from her day’s mission, Padma wanted to make it clear to followers that she’s not doing much dating these days.
