I want to live at Padma Lakshmi’s house

Padma Lakshmi is butt naked

Top Chef and model Padma Lakshmi posed nude for Page Six magazine back in 2009, probably looking very similar to these old modeling shots of her back in the day. And blah blah blah. Something something something. Seriously, this story isn’t the least bit newsworthy. Take it away Padma:

“I think those are beautiful pictures and they hang in our design studio and my daughter passes those pictures every day,” Lakshmi told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column while unveiling Frito-Lay’s “Flavor Kitchen” on Times Square. “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.”

Padma does make a great point here. It’s completely okay to make out with another woman in a huge vat of chocolate who also looks fantastic naked. So you can just leave your preconceived notions at home and quit judging. Um . . . she said that, right? Sometimes my imagination just sorta takes over.
