Padma Lakshmi Gets a Surprise (Belated) Birthday Bash

Posted on

She was away for her actual birthday (Sept. 1!) filming Top Chef: Texas, but Padma Lakshmi‘s friends did not forget her. Instead, they threw her a surprise belated birthday bash at New York’s Sons of Essex. The group all sipped Armand de Brignac Brut Gold champagne, and some signature cocktails. “She was completely surprised and had no idea,” a source says. Lakshmi also took a trapeze lesson earlier in the day. Says the source: “Her friends made it a really special day for her.” – Jennifer Garcia
