Why 'Top Chef' host hit 'Race's' Phil Keoghan
Padma Lakshmi says she was 'really mean' to 'Race' host
"Top Chef's" Padma Lakshmi got physical with "The Amazing Race's" Phil Keoghan on the red carpet at Sunday night's Emmy.
"I thought 'Amazing Race' was going to win again. In fact, I was really, really mean to the host on the red carpet. I think I hit him twice with my purse!" joked Lakshmi after her Bravo show finally beat "The Amazing Race" in the outstanding reality-competition program category, which had won for the past seven years.
"I told him I was taking him down, and guess what, 'I was right!'" Lakshmi went on.
So what are her and Tom Colicchio's plans for next season -- currently taping -- to start their own winning streak?
"We'll up the ante," she hinted to The Hollywood Reporter. "The next season will knock your socks off."
But don't expect them to share any details.
"We signed a million-dollar contract," Colicchio told THR. "We don't want to do jail time. The food in jail is not good."
