Padma Lakshmi

We are so honored to have not only these two very extraordinary men and recipients of these awards but also many extraordinary surgeons and doctors and health professionals in the audience. I want to thank everyone who came to the conference today because my part of the pie at endo is just to talk to normal lay people and tell young girls that if you have pain it is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong, get checked, we will help you, you do not have to suffer in silence. It is very embarrassing to talk about, especially if you are a young girl but Tamer’s job is to get all of his really smart, big brained people on board. I want to thank all of you for taking such good care of us and using your talents and your intellect and your hard work and your dedication for the better health of us all. And that includes my uncle by the way, thank you.

If only I could travel with this posse every day. If only they could follow me, beating to my rhythm making the world a sexier place but I am happy they are with us tonight because it is a really special occasion. Thank you for being here in order to give you pleasure. So that we may return the favor of your support we present with great honor Ms. Cucu DIAMANTES!

Are you ready to party? MUSICA!

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I am Cucu Diamantes and I am really proud to be here with, you know, these beautiful people! So let’s have a coffee, one more drink and let’s PARTY tonight. “Mentiras”, Cumbia…


Thank you but there are still many people sitting. You need you know to sleep well tonight so you need the food to o down through the pipes. Stand up! And join me and these lovely ladies in silver and white to dance. Who are the stronger people in this room? Women! So, I really call every woman who is sitting to stand up and come closer to me because this song is called “Stronger Than You”. I wrote it for us so when we have some problems we have to use our own philosophy. I sing this song because we are stronger than you guys. “Mas Fuerte”…baby cry for me…you better cry for me otherwise there is no…Ramon is going to cry for me and all of us here…okay, go baby…Sweet Cry.

I think they learned that tonight we are the stronger
