Possums, we had quite the coughing fit (from the smoke, bien sûr) when we read a shocking allegation about Padma on the Best Week Ever blog. Selon the BWE kidders' exclusive!:
According to a source who worked on the set of Top Chef, the ex-model turned trophy wife turned hostess Padma Lakshmi allegedly enjoys smoking pot on set, giving a whole new meaning to the term “Quickfire Challenge” — see, cause she’s allegedly lighting up a joint instead of a stove! Anyway. Exactly how often this happened is disputed, though we were assured it was allegedly “fairly regularly.”We're shocked, possums, shocked. We knew she had said "No!" to fashion sense, and we thought she had also said "No!" to drugs. Miss XaXa wonders, "Is this why Michael "Beer Bong" Midgley stayed on the show so long?"
