'Top Chef' Host:

I'm PROUD

of Naked Pictures

4/14/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi doesn't regret baring her pregnant body in a nude photo shoot a couple years ago -- claiming the pics are "beautiful" and her young daughter sees them every day.

Padma Lakshmi Nude
Lakshmi -- who posed nude while she was pregnant for a spread in Page Six Magazine in 2009 --
tells FOX411, “I think those are beautiful pictures and they hang in our design studio" ... adding, "My daughter passes those pictures every day."

Lakshmi claims, “There's a difference between a beautiful photo and an exploited photo, and I don't believe there's anything exploited in the photos that I've taken.”

And that's the naked truth.

"Whenever you get naked for money, then it's exploited, dumbass!"

Why? What can you do for money that isn't exploitation?
I work for a living and live in a society that values freedom of speech. But, I'm not free to say certain truthful things about my employer.
Am I exploited? Did i sell out?

When you have a Body™ like that it is your solemn duty to pose naked as much as possible. Our only problem should be that she doesn't do it enough.
