When is a Padma Lakshmi bikini photo more scandalous than it is sizzling?
When one is forced to wonder whether the Top Chef host actually has a penis under her alluring bathing suit? Allow us to explain...
Lakshmi shared a picture of herself running on the beach in a two-piece yesterday, writing something as a caption that has followers now staring at her crotch.
But for a reason you might not expect.
“My friend claims it looks like I have a penis in this pic,” Lakshmi wrote along the throwback picture. “One guess to whether he's gay or not... #onhismind #tbt.

But Padma's fans are having some fun with it as they show her support.
“Who cares?! You're freakin hot!!!!” wrote one Instagram follower, while another added: “@padmalakshmi YOU are a goddess!!! Penis or not lol Love it.”
