What Made Padma Lak­shmi Go Berserk?


IN A rather un­called for in­ci­dent on the sets of Amer­i­can chat show WatchWhatHap­pen­sLive , model-ac­tress Padma Lak­shmi al­most came to log­ger­heads with a fe­male staffer for touch­ing her. Ac­cord­ing to sources, the fe­male staffer in ques­tion gen­tly placed her hand on Padma’s arm to get her at­ten­tion as she wanted to ask some­thing to the TopChef host. Padma flipped com­pletely with this ‘touchy’ ges­ture of the staffer, yank­ing away, spin­ning around and then glar­ing dag­gers at this poor lady (in that or­der). Padma, who al­ready has a rep­u­ta­tion of be­ing prick­lier than a cac­tus, took every­one by sur­prise with this over-the-top re­ac­tion. Peo­ple won­dered if the #MeToo move­ment was psych­ing her up all the more. How­ever, every­one on the sets de­cided to just play it safe and keep an ‘arm’s dis­tance’ from her af­ter that.
