Padma Withdrawal Post
Late Breaking News on an otherwise slow Friday…..In an effort to prove that she’s enough of a chef to warrant her constant presence on this blog, Padma Lakshmi did the catering for some fancy-shmancy benefit party in Manhattan this week. But guess who shows up?
The evening’s most dramatic moment was a chance encounter between Salman Rushdie and his soon-to-be ex-wife Padma Lakshmi, who saw him at the after party and threw her arms around him as everyone watched. She held on as if for dear life. He held on too. Lakshmi walked away minutes later, sobbing, as a few friends consoled her. She then returned to Rushdie and they began kissing. They separated again.
