Richard Gere is one of the original Silver Foxes and ladies love him. Padma Lakshmi was pretty popular while Top Chef was at its height (does that show still air anymore? Has it just fallen off my radar?) and is generally agreed to be pretty hot. Therefore, it kinda makes sense that they’d team up and start dating, right?
“They’re just getting to know each other,” the source said. “They’re just dating. This is the first person she’s dated since Teddy [Forstmann] passed away and she’s just putting a toe in the water of the dating world again. They’re not sure where it’s going yet.”
Well, that’s nice and vague, “insider” – thanks for the update! These two should be able to keep things under wraps, though. Neither of them are really tabloid fodder so they should be able to avoid too much press and maybe love will flourish!
