Padma Lakshmi is in Vanity Fair‘s December issue, talking about life, love, career, divorce, lalala. The photos from that session are absolutely gorgeous. She should just stop talking and posing for pictures. Although, I read through most of her new cookbook, Tangy Tart Hot & Sweet, and it’s actually pretty fun, and some of the recipes are ones I’ll be trying for sure.

Padma Lakshmi is in this week’s People plugging her new book and the end of this season’s Top Chef. She talks about Salman Rushdie, her ex-husband. “I miss having that sounding board. I don’t think you ever stop loving people.” Isn’t that so sad?

So…Sandra Oh, Masi Oka, and Mindy Kaling all lost in their respective categories last night. I didn’t see the show, but looks like Masi Oka showed up on stage with a laptop. Um.

Here are some shots of Sandra, Mindy, Padma, and Kimora (of course) at the Emmys last night.
