Weird couple alert: Richard Gere and Padma Lakshmi?

padma lakshmi richard gere

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?

From People:

“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!

Here’s Where I Avoid All “Bun in the Oven” Jokes


Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi is expecting her first baby, an event she is calling a “medical miracle”.  Lakshmi is a co-founder of the Endometriosis Foundation of America as well as a long-time sufferer of the condition.

Padma hasn’t named the father yet, but I was wondering what was up when I saw her on the Emmy red carpet.  I figured she moved past eating just the garnish during Top Chef judging segments and had ventured into consuming actual entrees.

Congrats to Padma and the mystery daddy (who I’m sure is a billionaire)!
