Her picture had been in all the papers in the world and she felt vulnerable, she said." 6) On the "deliberate policy of being seen in public": "There would be no more 'hiding.' He would eat at Balthazar, Da Silvano and Nobu, he would go to movie screenings and book launches and be seen enjoying himself at late-night hot spots such as Moomba, at which Padma was well known." 7) On acquiescing to the lifestyle: "And in spite of her frequent moodiness, her capacity for brattish "model behavior," and her not infrequent coldness toward him, Padma, to her great credit, agreed that this was how he should live, and was prepared to stand next to him while he did so..." 8) When they lived together: "She was capable of saying things of such majestic narcissism that he didn't know whether to bury his head in his hands or applaud.
When the Indian movie star Aishwarya Rai was named the most beautiful Indian woman in the world in some glossy magazine or other, for example, Padma announced, in a room full of people, that she had "serious issues with that." Her moodiness was unpredictable and extreme." : "French Playboy found nude photographs of her and ran one on the cover, calling her his 'fiancée.' She didn't care about the words and she didn't mind the picture being there, but she wanted to be paid for it, and he had to hire a French lawyer to work for her.
In March 2016, Padma got candid with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show as she talked about a time when she didn't realize who Krishna's father was after she got pregnant because she was dating two men following her divorce from author Salman Rushdie."It probably wasn't the best choice, but it was the choice that I made at the time," she explained.

On the Padma side, the memoir tracks Rushdie leaving his wife for "an American of Indian origin who had grand ambitions and secret plans that had nothing to do with the fulfillment of his deepest needs." The book goes into detail about their tumultuous relationship; he is at times harsh in his language when writing about her, citing her "frequent moodiness" that was "unpredictable and extreme," her "capacity for brattish 'model behavior,'" and her "majestic narcissism." He also talks about her ending up on the cover of the French back in 2000 and how she had to hire a French lawyer because "she wanted to be paid for it." (The cover is below, sort of NSFW.) Rushdie, who reveals Padma's original name as Padmalakshmi Vaidyanathan, wrote in his journal that "selfishness is her most prominent characteristic." Here now, eleven things you didn't know: 1) On their first meeting: "[H]e came face-to-face with Padma Lakshmi and at once he realized he'd seen her before, or her picture anyway, in an Italian magazine in which he, too, had been featured, and he remembered thinking, 'If I ever meet this girl my goose is cooked.'" 2) On Padma's real name: "Her name was an oddity, one name broken into two by her mother's divorce.She had been born Padmalakshmi Vaidyanathan in Delhi...A paternity test eventually revealed that Dell is the father of the model's daughter, 6-year-old Krishna Thea Lakshmi-Dell.Dell and Lashmi were engaged in a year-long custody battle before eventually settling in March 2012.Looking back, Lashmi still completely owns her decision."I probably shouldn't have been with anybody and just taken the time I needed for myself, but I was presented with two very different, very interesting men, and you know, men do it all the time," she pointed out.
