“Top Chef” Host Padma Lakshmi REALLY Serious About Her Diet

Is this show as good as ProjRun? Probably less gays running around. But plenty of shots of delicious entrees and wacky people sweating into them. Padma Lakshmi was at NYC’s Fiamma in Soho the other night and acted up. You would figure when a bim who makes her living on a television show about food comes into your joint, you make her something extra special so she’ll tell a friend. Well not for this one. Lakshmi freaked out when the chef sent over several special dishes for her. In fact, she ended up yelling “‘Take it away! Don’t you know I’m on a diet?” at the waiter. She was said to have been rude to his ass all night. Well, I never! Easy there, Pad. You’re not exactly on the Heidi Klum hosting track just yet. Can’t you have at least been courteous to people? Ugh. Here are pics of this crazy at the annual Guggenheim Young Collectors Council Art Show at the Guggenheim Museum.
