It should be noted that less than a month, ago, Padma Lakshmi appeared at a benefit for endometriosis, and, in the words of HuffPost Entertainment, "talked about her love for Teddy Forstmann, a long term companion who is not the baby's father." (The father is Adam Dell.)
She said of Teddy:
"I am lucky to have someone who unwaveringly gave me love and manly support -- and is also the person that I love. So thank you, Teddy."
So her evening with Spade may very well not have been romantic.
The spotting has resulted in a nearly unanimously display of internet jaw-dropping:
- "David Spade and ... Padma Lakshmi? Could It Be?" -- PopEater
- "Today's "Huh?" Couple .. Does this make any sense at all?" -- Celebuzz
- "David Spade and Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi make an unlikely couple?!" -- Just Jared
- "Good god, David Spade snagged another outrageously hot date...Did this awkward little man sell his soul to the devil or something?" -- Gawker
