Lifestyle guru Sandra Lee and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are going their separate ways after 14 years.
The couple told reporter Zack Fink in a statement, “Over the recent past, we have realized that our lives have gone in different directions and our romantic relationship has turned into a deep friendship. We will always be family and are fully supportive of each other and dedicated to the girls. Our personal lives remain personal and there will be no further comment.”
People reports Cuomo’s former aide Alexandra Stanton introduced Lee and Cuomo at a party in the Hamptons in 2005.
Lee was previously married to L.A. businessman Bruce Karatz, and Cuomo was married to Kerry Kennedy. He has three daughters with Kennedy: Michaela and twins Cara and Mariah.
