Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham is on the mend!

As you may recall, back in November, the 29-year-old penned an intimate look into her painful struggle with what has now been diagnosed and treated as endometriosis — a disorder that causes the lining of the uterus to grow outside of the uterus. In March, the Girls star underwent surgery after having an ovarian cyst rupture.

Needless to say, it hasn't been an easy journey — but things are beginning to look up.

The event benefited the Endometriosis Foundation, and it's no surprise that the Girls creator was there, as she has publicly revealed she suffers from the condition.

The actress was looking healthy and glowing in a white blazer and cut-out top worn with blue and green print silk pants.

Now the pants are not so bad but Lena's accessories were definitely unnecessary. She could've gone without the necklace and drop earrings, and the overall ensemble would've been much more polished.

Padma and Allison kept their accessories to a minimum, and instead let their glamorous gowns do the talking.

The Top Chef host and Girls actress picked a backless silver shimmering number and a navy blue sheer long-sleeved lace dress, respectively.

Thoughts???

Padma Lakshmi Reveals She Was Molested As A Young Girl

So upsetting.

Padma Lakshmi is getting real about a lot of topics in her new memoir Love, Loss And What We Ate — including being molested as a young girl by a friend of her then-stepfather.

Ugh.

The cookbook author opened up about her decision to share her story with EW's Jess Cagle saying:

"I wanted to talk about it because if women like me don't talk about it, who will?"

The 45-year-old actress was just seven years old when she recalls the first incident.

As a child, she lived with her mom in a Queens two bedroom apartment, along with her then-stepfather and his friend, with whom she shared a bed.

Sorry, Justin…

Do you remember those random rumors out of Cannes back in 2014 that said Adriana Lima and Justin Bieber went home together after hours of flirting?

Well, the Victoria's Secret Angel stopped by Watch What Happens Live! on Thursday alongside Padma Lakshmi and not only did she speak the truth about the whole situation… she didn't even know people ever thought she'd hooked up with The Biebs!

When Andy Cohen asked the 34-year-old beauty about their possible relationship, Adriana clarified that it didn't happen — and furthermore it couldn't have happened!

Why? Because Justin is only 5'9" — and everyone shorter than 6'7" gets instantly friendzoned!

Ouch!
