Breaking News! “Top Chef” Health Scare: Padma Lakshmi Suffers Broken Irony Meter
















Is there any other explanation, possums, for Padma Lakshmi saying, “Looking good and making the most of what you have is what Miami is really all about,” in this outfit?

Sergeant Pepper should be court-martialed, the Sioux warrior put out to pasture, and Kipling’s Raj lieutenant banished to the Hindu Kush. We’re afraid, possums, that Padma has had a relapse. She’s dressing herself again. (“And stealing blue pants from MFMalarkey’s…er…closet,” Miss XaXa pointed out.)















We thought the rehabilitation and di-vest-ment had been successful, but those damned vests are back (check out this week’s Padma vlog on Bravo’s website). Padma, possum, if the '80s and the decade’s signature salmon-mousse canapé are out, then so are the '80s and the decade’s signature vests. Is it time to bring back the Padma Lakshmi Weekly Fashion Review? Did Padma get her vests from the cast of Full House?


As for guest judge Michael Schwartz, to use his own words against him, “What the fuck is that?” For someone who is so focused on what “look[s] great” and on “presentation,” it seems dubious to go around looking like Edward G. Robinson in The Ten Commandments.

That vest reminded me of Adam Ant.

the vest reminded me of
1) high school marching band
2) michael jackson

neither were good recollections.

oh those blue pants!

despite my mini-crush on brian, and my own personal fascination with MFMs, finding out about mrs. malarkey has really crushed brian in my opinion. she just seems so...tawdry. tacky. nouveau riche. and blaring your MFM activities on a MYSPACE page when you are in your thirties is beyond gauche.

ugh.

i think i'm solidly cheering for Dale now.

To me, the chef looks like Bud or whatever his name was who played in Married with Children. Well, maybe not even that good.

Anent Padma's blue pants, let it be noted that it's easier for a rich man to enter than for a camel toe to go through the eye of a needle--an observation that might cause Michael Schwartz to ask, "Where's your messiah nooooooow?"

I thought the "super-star of Florida cuisine" looked more like Maynard G. Krebs from the "Many Loves of Dobie Gillis".

Which, come to think of it, sort of fits your Third-Wives theme. Kind of.

Thank Gawd Padma is back to her fashion faux pas. Her regression and Hung's beautific expression as he diddles with cereal are the two things that saved this show.

Marius said...

LOL. I agree with Ms. Place; I'm so glad she’s dressing herself again. We really need the material.

Adam Ant! Love that comment. It was the first thing I thought of. I had that poster on my bedroom door for the longest time - hee
