Nothing like a romantic getaway to heat up a new relationship!!!

While Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi has reportedly been dating hotelier Vikram Chatwal since January, it appears they are now exclusive after a weeks-long vacation together in exotic India!

We're so happy for her!!!

After all the drama and heartbreak she's been through with previous men, she definitely deserves it!

Ted Forstmann Dies

Padma Lakshmi was romantically linked to Teddy Forstmann, who was a vet in the business world and a philanthropist.

He was 71, and lost a battle with brain cancer, unfortunately.

It's never good to hear news like this, and our thoughts go out to his family and sons, who will need support through this tough time.

From what we understand, he was a good man.

Audience Pays Padma Laksmi To GTFO Stage

| Filed under: FoodPadma Lakshmi

Padma Paid To Get Off Stage

Wow.

So, Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi is apparently terrible at hosting things, because her audience interrupted her to donate a thousand dollars to The Moth just to get her off the stage:

“She was rambling,” our source said. She told a long story about wanting to try a hot dog and later begged guests to donate $20 each. The man stood up and said, “I will donate $1,000 if you get off the stage right now.”

Lakshmi’s rep said, “She was not intoxicated but having fun in an unscripted format … The person offered $1,000 and Padma said she’ll take that offer.”

LOLz!

Rambling about hot dogs??

We guess that's one tactic to get people to donate: be just so terrible that they pay you to leave!
