Padma Lakshmi & David Spade: new couple?

41646, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Wednesday June 16 2010. New couple alert?!? Padma Lakshmi and David Spade do their best to look like they're not together as they leave Koi in West Hollywood.

Padma Lakshmi will stop at nothing to promote the new season of Top Chef. She will have some random Dell dude’s baby. She will fight publicly with the Dell dude over her baby’s custody. She will romance a 70-something billionaire. She will go on a date with David Spade. What…? David Spade? But he’s not inappropriately old, nor obscenely wealthy. What gives Padma? What happened to Teddy Forstmann (the 70 year old billionaire)? And does David Spade have a Magic Wang or what? How does he date such inappropriately hot women? Maybe he’s a good listener? That’s probably it.

David Spade may have done it again. The funnyman, who throughout his career has had as many (if not more) devastatingly gorgeous girlfriends as he has hit movies/shows, was photographed yesterday with none other than Padma Lakshmi. You know, the painfully sexy ‘Top Chef’ host and food writer? While a few photos together and a ride home certainly doesn’t mean the two are dating or even the slightest bit romantically involved, given Spade’s girlfriend catalog, crazier things could happen. Should they indeed be an item, though … Kudos, Mr. Spade. Kudos.

Here’s why I don’t think Padma and David are a couple: because he is not even close to her type. She generally goes for much older men, and they’re always very wealthy and/or important. While I’m sure David is a nice guy (scratch that, I have no idea), I suspect he and Padma are just friends, just like she’s “friends” with someone like Jeremy Piven. Maybe she just goes on “dates” with these dudes for publicity. Stranger things have happened.

    Gah, David Spade always swoops in on girls who have just gone through a break up or something.

  2. Tess says:

    New baby.
    No relationship with the baby’s father.
    All good.

    Sigh….

    you know your dress is too tight when we can see your girdle. seriously, it doesn’t hurt if you go up a size, especially since you just popped out a kid.

  4. The Truth Fairy says:

    The guy must have a huge one. It’s the only logical explanation.

  5. Jackson says:

    Padma looking rough in these pics, although I think she is a beautiful woman. Spade looking…like Spade. He certainly is not her type. He might actually be funny, though, IRL. It’s nice to just go out and laugh sometimes.

    Now let’s get some new pics of Tom Colicchio, shall we? A hottie who can cook. Mmmm.

  6. LindyLou says:

    Padma and Spade look uncomfortable to be photographed together.

    And I wonder too about how he manages to get super hot women to go out with him. Magic wang or incredibly effective pickup lines?!?!

  7. RHONYC says:

    he is such an unassuming mack-o-broads, lol.

    she’s got a terrible nose job, though… like, she needs a punch in that fugly nose.

  8. audrey says:

    Good for him! but I also don’t think they are dating. She likes rich, powerful old fogies.

  9. lucy2 says:

    I SOOOOO don’t get why any woman is interested in him.

  10. guesty says:

    he must be a living breathing vibrator to newly single ‘starlets’. nothing else could possible explain this.

  11. GatsbyGal says:

    Awwwww, David Spade’s a little cutie. I always thought he was super adorable.

  12. Lady LaLa says:

    Learn how to tie your shoe laces and lose the douche-y hat already

  13. Johnnyboy says:

    A better shot of the car would have been while the driver’s side door was open … you know, so you could see the stack of phonebooks he sits on.
