You'd think someone like Padma Lakshmi would have a fancy breakfast the day of the Emmys.
But no, the Top Chef host keeps it simple.
"I'm going to wake up and I'm going to have a big fat breakfast," Lakshmi told me Thursday at Audi's pre-Emmys party at Cecconi's in West Hollywood. "Probably a lot of protein like eggs and yogurt. Lots of coffee and juice. And then I'm going to have a lot of laughs and slap on some lipstick."
Laughs will include some at her own expense. "I like to have family heckling me while I'm getting my makeup done," Lakshmi said. "My mom usually comes out because my daughter is with me and it's fun."
