Nude pictures of Padma Lakshmi are seen by her baby daughter every day in the Top Chef hostÂ’s home. Lakshmi is not ashamed of her tasteful, nude, and pregnant pictures. The pictures are posted up in the jewelry designerÂ’s studio, and her one-year-old daughter sees her momÂ’s naked pics daily.
It certainly seems bizarre for a mother to allow her daughter to be exposed to these provocative pics daily, doesnÂ’t it?
Padma Lakshmi stated, Â“I think those are beautiful pictures and they hang in our design studio and my daughter passes those pictures every day. I think a woman's body is one of the most beautiful creations on this Earth and it's not what you do, it's how you do it. Michael Angelo did nudes too. There's a difference between a beautiful photo and an exploited photo, and I don't believe there's anything exploited in the photos that I've taken.Â”
Even thought Lakshmi doesnÂ’t think it is wrong for her daughter to see her momÂ’s nude pictures, it is potentially traumatizing for her young daughter. Does the Top Chef host want her daughter to grow up and take nude pictures? Children follow in their parentsÂ’ footsteps. Would she allow a future son to see his naked momÂ’s photos daily, too?
Padma Lakshmi is presently in a bitter custody battle with the Krishna Thea LakshmiÂ’s daddy. The babyÂ’s father is Adam Dell, who is the brother of Dell computer founder Michael Dell. Leading a celebrity life certainly makes her life open for tabloid exploitation.
The Top Chef host spoke about all the tabloid exposure that her and her daughter receive. She stated, Â“First of all, a lot of what you read is just plain untrue, and then a lot of it is really personal so I can't even defend myself because then I'm adding to the noise and opening up the discussion and that's not right for me and it's not right for my family and it's not healthy.Â”
It is a great idea for Lakshmi to not invoke more non-sense chatter about her personal life. And each time a celebrity chats with the media, they are exposing themselves to more gossip.
Maybe if Padma Lakshmi doesnÂ’t want tabloid exposure, then she should not take nude, pregnant pictures, and then allow her baby daughter to see them daily. This story is quite disturbing.
