Padma Drops Serious Bomb in Book
The chef's new memoir digs deeper than just the food.

The juicy details about Padma Lakshmi’s personal life just continue to unfold as she promotes her new memoir, Love, Loss and What We Ate.

The model-turned-reality-TV-host shares her side of the story of her eight-year relationship to famed author, Salman Rushdie.

In Rushdie’s 2012 memoir, Joseph Anton, he described her as fickle and narcissistic while Padma describes him in her book as being insensitive to her health issues.

After undergoing major operations for her endometriosis, Padma claims that Rushdie, her husband at the time, referred to her as “a bad investment.”
