Sandra Lee Spotted for the First Time Since Split from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo
Celebrity chef Sandra Lee was spotted for the first time since her split from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
In the video, Lee parks a black Range Rover outside an L.A. hospital and helps her Uncle Bill out of the vehicle. The two then walk arm in arm as Lee keeps hidden under a black cap and sunglasses.
The sighting comes after Lee opened up about the breakup on Facebook, writing, “Dear Everyone!! Over the recent past Andrew and I 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. I send you all my love and gratitude for all your support over the years.”
She followed up with a post about love and family in celebration of her Uncle Bill and Aunt Peggy's 60th wedding anniversary. Sandra shared how the celebration was extra-special because of his medical issues over the past three years.
“It has felt like we have all been fighting back the Grim Reaper and his doctor is shocked that he is here to celebrate today,” she wrote. “But I have to say God loves Uncle Bill! He goes to church every single week no matter what condition he is in. And has been an amazing example to everyone in our family.”
Lee recalled how they were like parents to her, and she even moved into their L.A. home when she was in her twenties.
“My uncle gave up his in home office and turned it into my bedroom and he help me find manufactures and create a real business. He would get up at in the middle of the night when I came home from a business trip and made me something delicious to eat ——always handing me a hot cup of coffee when I walk through the door. My Aunt also help with my business creating my crafting projects and product displays for my first product lines in home decorating.”
She added, “So many window treatments and wreaths that she actually got carpal tunnel from all of the sewing and pinning.”
Despite his health troubles, the family has been traveling together and checking things off Bill's bucket list. He even renewed his vows with Peggy.
Sandra wrote that the couple had “truly taught me what it means to be a family” and wished them a “Happy Happy Anniversary.”
Lee has had her own health battles. In 2015, the chef was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy to save her life.
