Amuse-Biatch Dispatch from the Department of Duh: Padma Lakshmi and Salman Rushdie Take the Train to Splitsville?

Well, possums, we can't say we didn't see this coming.

We had Top Chef sources who had let it drop to us that Padma would talk on the set about dumping Salman Rushdie's Booker Prize-winning derriere, and lo and behold, look what we saw in today's edition of the New York Observer:

Is it curtains for author Salman Rushdie and his fourth wife, the actress, chef and reality-show hostess Padma Lakshmi?

Late last week, a source overheard designer Diane von Furstenberg obsessing over the news that the luscious Ms. Lakshmi, 36, was set to drop the 59-year-old novelist, her husband of three years, like a heavy sack of unread best-sellers.

“I can’t believe she’s leaving him,” Ms. von Furstenberg kept saying, according to the source. The wrap-dress queen is a longtime friend of the couple and attended their wedding in April 2004, along with editor Tina Brown, comedian Steve Martin and assorted other famous guests.

Most troubling to Ms. von Furstenberg, apparently, was Ms. Lakshmi’s stated and not exactly literary reason for putting an end to the relationship with the Booker Prize winner: to focus on her big Bravo hit, Top Chef.

I thought the elaborate temporary tattooing was for VIRGIN hindu brides?

Anonymous said...

Nevermind. I did some research. Whore brides are eligible for the tattoos. Here's the proof.

First of all, props to padma for (1) being a whore bride and (2) taking full advantage of the henna rights she is apparently entitled to for being (1).

Secondly, I haven't had any sympathy for salman since he ditched the first wife - who stuck by him while he was in hiding - to marry a model.

Thirdly, the idea that Padma is leaving him because of the "success" of Top Chef is sad.

Oh, puh-leez: Ilan is gay as a handbag. Also, this whole post is bullshit--Padma is not leaving Rushdie.

Anonymous said...

Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. But why are so many people willing to believe someone anonymous who overheard someone else at a party? Not exactly a credible source

Reeya said...

Padma would be nowhere without Rushdie. Would anyone give a hoot about a no-talent poorly-dressed stoner unless she were married to the so-called father of Indian writing in English? Seriously. Only reason why Bravo hired her was because she's Rushdie's wife. She needs to get a clue, and fast.
