Padma Lakshmi is taking a breather!
The longtime host of Bravo's "Top Chef" has been working non-stop in 2019, and she revealed to her Instagram followers this week that she's finally getting a moment to regroup.
"When you’ve been on the road for six months straight and you finally get a minute (1) to yourself," Lakshmi captioned a photo of herself nude in a bathtub.
In the snap, the 49-year-old television personality lounges in a copper bathtub full of murky water and rose petals.

Fans and friends were quick to praise the star for the gorgeous photo:
Some notable celebs commented on the post, too, with "Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson joking about the photo possibly showing too much, while her "Top Chef" co-star, Tom Colicchio weighed in by callinig it "one hell of a selfie."
Padma's moment of relaxation follows a busy year of filming for the star: Bravo announced at the first-ever BravoCon last weekend that the next season of "Top Chef" will be an all-stars season that was filmed in Los Angeles, and she also has been working on her new solo show for Hulu, which she revealed exclusively to AOL earlier this month will be called "Taste the Nation."
"The mission statement is to show what the country really looks like and how we eat. It’s called 'Taste the Nation,' so that tells you everything you need to know," Lakshmi told AOL. "We like to say things like, 'It’s as American as apple pie.' Not one ingredient in apple pie is indigenous to North America, including the apples. Everything is brought here. That’s what makes our country unique, is that we’re able to take the best of all of these immigrant influences that have come and contributed to our society and distill them into one American culture, which is really a microcosm for the best and the worst of the world."
