HSN Celebrity Chef Todd English Still Has Taste For Asian Woman, According To New York Post

February 27, 2010

The New York Post must save a spot in its Page Six gossip column each Saturday for an item on HSN celebrity chef Todd English.

Ever since English left his bride-to-be, Erica Wang, at the altar last October, the Post has been writing about him. Most of those tidbits have been about English kicking up his heels at some joint having a good ol’ time, not mourning his nasty break-up with Wang.

Today Page Six wrote about a possibly touchy subject: English’s “taste for Asian beauties.” His jilted bride Wang is of Asian descent, and today’s item says English was spotted in Las Vegas at American Fish “chatting up” an Asian woman at the bar there.

Page Six added that on Wednesday, Todd was seen with “another Asian stunner” while flying from Sin City to the other sin city, South Beach.

We’ve read stories by Asian woman talking about the sexual stereotypes Caucasian men have about them, and how they feel about those myths.

We’re half Puerto Rican, so we’re aware of the Latin spitfire, Madonna-whore, notions that men have about Hispanic women. We once went to a party for a Spanish-language cable network, and we ran into men who were essentially there just to meet the Latina hot tamale of their dreams.

It gave us the creeps. You couldn’t tell if the guy was interested in you, or the Latin stereotype he had in his head.

HSN Vendor and ‘Top Chef’ Star Padma Lakshmi Tells New York Post She Digs Being Naked

November 30, 2009

It’s becoming a habit: HSN’s celebrity vendors winding up on the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column. Monday it was “Top Chef’s” lovely Padma Lakshmi.

Page Six offered a tidbit, from its upcoming interview Thursday with the pregnant Lakshmi. It will appear in Page Six Magazine.

Bravo star Lakshmi, who has done a line of her cookbooks, teas and spices for HSN, tells Page Six, “I like me better naked….When you don’t have any clothes on, it’s just you, raw, and you can’t hide.”

We’re sure that will catch the attention and spark some fantasies for many red-blooded American men.

We can’t wait to read the full interview Thursday.
