There are a lot of eyes on Andrew Cuomo, including his ex-girlfriend's.
Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the New York governor has become the face of the fight in the state, which is currently facing more cases than any country outside of the United States. With his daily briefings, the 62-year-old leader has also emerged as a source of comfort for people watching while his recurring banter with his brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, has offered a side of entertainment and comedic relief. In fact, the Internet is kind of crushing on them right now.
Well, don't get too ahead of yourselves out there because according to a new New York Times interview, Andrew's ex Sandra Lee is still very much in his life. The two confirmed their split in September 2019 after more than a decade together.
In the newly published profile, the famed TV foodie, who currently hosts the #TopShelf series for Today.com, told the New York Times they still communicate nearly daily.
"I get up and I see what the latest news is. Of course I watch Andrew live," she said of her current days. "And then share with him my thoughts."
But, that wasn't all. Lee also told the Times, "He's still my guy...Neither one of us, well as far as I know, has had a date."

According to the article, she is helping connect P.P.E. donors with his daughter, Cara, who has been volunteering with relief efforts for the state.
"They're my family, and they always will be my family," she said of his three daughters.
While they ultimately split, it's crystal clear Lee's feelings toward her former partner are the furthest from ill. "We share a home, we share children, we share friendship," she said. "I will protect him and be there for him until the day I die."
Though Cuomo was unavailable for comment, a spokesperson told the Times, "The Governor wishes her well in her next endeavor and we're sure it will be a success."
