padma lakshmi signs a sitcom deal

Okay, so you know I have a massive infatuation with Padma Lakshmi, the super-gorgeous host of Bravo's Top Chef. Well, according to Variety, Padma has signed a development deal with NBC to develop and star in her own sitcom: Padma Lakshmi could heat up sitcom.

She'll reportedly star as a woman working in the culinary world. Possible title: "Single Serving." (Blech.) Sure, she can explain a quickfire challenge and she's certainly shown that really really knows how to eat a Carl's Jr. burger... but can she carry her own sitcom?

Prior to the Top Chef gig, Padma's acting credits include the ABC miniseries The Ten Commandments, as well as the features The Mistress of Spices and Boom. She also played the singer Sylk in Glitter. Not an overly impressive resume, but hey, maybe she'll surprise us.
