Los Angeles, July 1 (IANS) Indian-American model, TV host, author and activist Padma Lakshmi has shared the true story of the battle behind an old stunning photoshoot that had turned heads when it was launched.
The 50-year-old star posted the throwback photo on Instagram of a jewelry campaign footage, quoting Oprah Winfrey in the caption.
“You can have it all, just not all at once” – @oprah
“This is me in our jewelry campaign for The Padma Collection. I am exhausted here, not only from making Top Chef, losing weight and running a jewelry company on the side, but from all the burdens that come with being the sole business owner. A year from when this picture was taken, I had to make the difficult decision as a new mom to close my company, my boyfriend died of cancer, and I just could not handle it all.
“I learned so much about my priorities during that time,” Padma wrote.
In the picture, she is seen wearing a blazer with a deep neckline and a pair of jewelry.
She welcomed her daughter Krishna, whom she shares with her former partner Adam Dell, in February 2010.
