While Lakshmi plans the upcoming April 13 Blossom Ball to benefit the EFA, Krishna is also trying to do her part.
As a host Padma Lakshmi was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program, and her show has also won an Emmy Award.
Lakshmi has added much to her net worth as an author of cookbooks.
Padma Parvati Lakshmi was born on September 1, 1970 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Her parents divorced when Padma was only year old and Padma moved to live in the United States.
Her first book titled ‘Easy Exotic’ won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award as the Best First Book in 1999.
In addition to this, Padma Lakshmi has increased her net worth by modelling, too.
“We are a country of immigrants, so to say you should put a wall up or limit certain ethnicities is sort of antithetical to what this country is about,” Lakshmi said. Unless you are from the Cherokee nation, your ancestors are immigrants so you may be an umpteenth generation immigrant but there you are, squatting on someone else’s land.” Lakshmi noted that because she runs the women’s health organization the Endometriosis Foundation of America, she’s been paying close attention to Trump’s recent comments on reproductive rights — specifically, that women receiving abortions should be punished. “I think he’s blabbing, I don’t think he really knows what he is saying, I am not even sure he really believes that a woman shouldn’t have a right to choose.
But I can only judge someone by what they say.” With the New York primary next week, Lakshami, who describes herself as a “bleeding heart liberal,” says she’s backing Hillary Clinton.
Known as India's first supermodel, she began her career as a fashion model, working in Europe and the US.
In 2009, Lakshmi co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America alongside world renowned Advanced Gynecological Surgeon Tamer Seckin, MD.
“Even if he wasn’t the racist buffoon that he is making himself out to be, I probably wouldn’t vote for him,” Lakshmi said.
