Top Chef's Padma Butters Her Belly

padmalakshmied3Top Chef host and cookbook author Padma Lakshmi doesn’t just use butter for sautéing and sauces. She also uses butter for her bulging belly. Body butter that is.  Padma stated that…“One thing that happens when you’re pregnant is that as your stomach starts to stretch [and] it itches! So I have to keep my belly really lubricated.”  She continued to say, “Every morning, there’s a buttering ceremony after I get out of the shower. It’s really like basting a turkey with body butter.” But she has help keeping buttered up. “Before, my housekeeper was helping me because I can’t bend over to do my feet. Now my mom’s here and she’s been buttering up my tummy.”

On becoming bigger Padma said that she’s used to public scrutiny since her weight changes with the production of Top Chef. “During the course of filming Top Chef, I gain 15 lbs., so I’m used to needing two dress sizes. Now I’ll just need three: my fat size, my skinny size and my super size.”
