In a new advertorial series, the Times gets a sumptuously supine Padma Lakshmi to tell us why she loves staff scribe Bill Cunningham. The omnipresent Eric Ripert is part of the series, too — they don’t get him on the couch, but they do catch him in the act of eating a crappy deli-freezer ice-cream cone! Which is more jaw-dropping? We’ll let you know after we watch this Padma video again. [NYT Conversations via NYO]
