Padma Lakshmi

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!

Ch-ch-check out Adriana's rather blunt reveal (above)!!!
