Padma Lakshmi’s Sex Life Is FASCINATING

Padma Lakshmi sex life

Who doesn’t lie awake thinking “Salman Rushdie. A person that exists. A person who Padma Lakshmi slept with.” I mean, not Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, that’s for sure.

At this point, I guess Padma is famous for also sleeping with people who are not Salman Rushdie. Namely Adam Dell, brother of Michael Dell, of Dell computers. They’re curently going through a bitter custody battle. Dell claims that “to minimize, if not eliminate his role in Krishna’s life and to install” her late billionaire lover Teddy Forstmann as the child’s father.

She has a late billionaire lover (the head of IMG) who just died of brain cancer at 71. He was linked to Princess Diana before her death. Apparently, she encouraged her child to call him “Papa.”

Basically, following Padma’s sex life makes me feel like I a watching some kind of 16th century courtesan in action.

Question: would it be fun to be Padma Lakshmi? Answer: yes. But it seems stressful, right? Right. Not as stressful as being Salman Rushdie though, because, Devorah Rose.

    Do you like non-fiction? If so, you should look into
    The Book of the Courtesan: A Catalogue of Their Virtues, by Susan Griffin. It is a bit dry and scholarly in places (which I don’t mind, but some do) but does give great anecdotal bits about individual historical courtesans and the eras that made them. It is a fascinating read, in my opinion.

      This is one of my all time favorite books! Admittedly, I got sucked into it after watching Dangerous Beauty 700 times. I’ve kept looking for more equally good ones about courtesans, but kind of come up short (though Madame Du Barry: The Wages of Beauty is really good – http://www.amazon.com/Madame-du-Barry-Wages-Beauty/dp/185043753X)

    Why don’t you focus on all of the good that Padma is doing? Check out endofound.org, where she helps women with endometriosis. If you read her story, you’ll see that she has struggled a lot.
