She Shills by the Sea Shore: Padma Lakshmi Makes Her Bid at Paris Hilton-dom























Let’s see, possums. The same week that Tom Colicchio was revealed as a shill for Diet Coke, and the same night that Padma Lakshmi referred to Stefan Richter’s dessert as “pedestrian at best” (at which point we half expected a lightning bolt of irony to drop casually from Zeus’ hand and smite her), good ole Pads was herself revealed as the newest shill for Carl’s Jr., following in the stiletto-wearing footsteps of Paris Hilton.



According to People Magazine, Padma claims the television ad, directed by the same cinematic “genius” who did the Paris Hilton carwash ad, is “a beautiful love song to food….I think eating in itself is the act of great sensuality, so all you have to do is point the camera in the right direction.”

Pedestrian indeed. And what could possibly make Padma so hungry all the time?

Padma knows about eating as an act of sensuality, having chowed down on a tube steak or two in her day.

The ONE single SHRED of credibility she had is now a thing of the past.

She's also pimping Pantene.

Is there anything that she won't do for money? Anything?
