Padma Lakshmi might be hiding some male genitalia, at least according to a friend who says she appears to have a penis in one particular photo. Check out the picture below, which Lakshmi made available and embeddable through Instagram.

In the snapshot, the “Top Chef” star is wearing a white-and-grey bikini as she runs on a beach along the surf. Looking at her crotch, which Lakshmi apparently wants us to do, there appears to be some kind of protrusion in her swimsuit bottom, giving the impression that something is tucked inside. And the brunette beauty’s unnamed pal thinks it was due to a secret penis. “My friend claims it looks like I have a penis in this pic,” Lakshmi captioned the photo she shared, which she noted was in honor of Throwback Thursday. The foodie added, “One guess as to whether he’s gay or not… #onhismind.”

Commenters seemed divided on whether it did, in fact, look like Lakshmi had a penis. “It’s your vagina mound, not a dingdong!” wrote one follower. Someone else said it just looked like “ballz.” One person wanted to know if the friend in question was Bravo pal Andy Cohen. Another quipped, “I was honestly looking at the sea… Didn’t notice you at all.” See the photo Lakshmi shared on Instagram below. Surely scientists will study it for decades to come.
