She is currently embroiled in a bitter battle with a former boyfriend over custody of her 11-month-old daughter Krishna.
But that doesn't seem to have distracted Padma Lakshmi from focussing on other things - namely looking for a brand new home in New York.
The 40-year-old Top Chef host is said to be particularly keen on a $10 million historic loft in the trendy neighbourhood of Greenwich Village.
Boasting five bedrooms, a study, dining room, kitchen and laundry area, the 4,535 square foot apartment is on the market for a cool $10.9 million.
Padma has been seen recently checking out an number of downtown residences in the city, according to the New York Post.
However, she is said to be interested in the apartment which was built in 1904 and was originally a department store.
The 12-story apartment building includes a doorman, concierge, and basement storage.
Along with a modern kitchen, the expansive lounge area features herringbone floors, high ceilings, a dramatic fireplace and large windows.
Padma, who was married to author Salman Rushdie from 2004 - 2007, already owns a $1.6 million loft in the city's East Village, but is clearly looking to upgrade.
