Top Chef Ejectee Lauren Starling Hope on Padma Lakshmi [saucy]
After being sent home from Top Chef, Lauren Starling Hope gave some pretty standard exit interviews to a few blogs, but she let loose when Yum Sugar interviewed her, having some choice words about Padma Lakshmi:
As for Padma, they do a very nice job editing and she comes out looking nice. She's not a person I would like to hang out with. I'm pretty easy going and not high maintenance. Everyone has to do their own hair and makeup, but she has a glam squad surrounding her at all times. They had to stop filming every two minutes to powder her nose. I was disenchanted with the beauty side of the film industry. Film is very different from the food industry.
