Padma Lakshmi, ex-wife of Salman Rushdie, host of Top Chef, and Hardee’s spokesbreasts, is about to add ‘sitcom star’ to her resume (because that is how resumes work). From Variety (via WarmingGlow):

“Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi is cooking up plans to star in a sitcom for NBC.

Building on her “Top Chef” credentials, the show will star Lakshmi as a woman working in the culinary world. (One possible title being mulled: “Single Serving.”)

Lakshmi’s acting credits include ABC miniseries “The Ten Commandments,” as well as the features “The Mistress of Spices” and “Boom.” She also played the singer Sylk in “Glitter.”

Whoops, Padma Lakshmi, those are your acting credits. Whatever, she’s not here to make friends. Anyway, this show clearly needs help in the name department (much like how Padma Lakshmi needs help in the being my girlfriend department). How about:

  • Dulce de Lakshmi
  • No Reservations: The TV Show
  • Pretty Single Lady Chef of Indian Heritage in the City
  • Cashmere Kitchen
  • Lipstick Kitchen

I’m not saying that any of those are any good, but all of those are definitely more good than Single Serving. Low to high millions. I’m the hardest working man in Name Business.

    Any chance of a cameo appearance by Jar Jar Binks in her new show?

    (I’m deeply sorry everybody, I couldn’t help myself).

  51. I didn’t know she was divorced from Rushdie until I read this post. How disappointing. He’s a professor at Emory here in Atlanta, so I always hoped to run into Padma shopping at Whole Foods (this hope never panned out because I can’t actually afford to shop at Whole Foods). Anyway:
