Sandra Lee Shows Off New Look Since Her Split With Andrew Cuomoadmin
Making her first public appearance after nseparating from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, television personality Sandra Lee looked nabsolutely gorgeous at an event in Capri, Italy, on Saturday, July 31st. Wearing a nyellow Matičevski gown matched with a pair of vibrant Miu Miu stilettos and a fuchsia nAmanda Pearl clutch bag, the newly single Lee struck a confident pose on the red carpet nat a gala hosted by LuisAviaRoma and UNICEF. Lee was in attendance as na UNICEF special emissary, having co-created the Los Angeles board n25 years ago. She shared on Instagram, “I have to say I’ve been to many, many events, nbut this has been the most extraordinary event I have been to in so long. Cheers to the team, nthank you for all the hard work, dedication and support… You have made the difference in nhundreds of thousands of children’s lives.” The event raised more than $5.9 nmillion for UNICEF’s “work to provide care and protection to vulnerable nchildren across the globe,” per People, mainly through an auction of n”several one-of-a-kind items” from celebs past and present, such as Steve nMcQueen, Andy Warhol, and Pablo Picasso. The celebrity chef, known for her “Semi-Homemade” ncooking as well as for being the former long-time fiancée of controversial New York politician nAndrew Cuomo, also took some time away from her Malibu mansion to explore the isle of Capri. nShe shared her vacation photos on Instagram, including a sunny dinner at the Lemon nGrove restaurant on the island. Lee wrote, “I thank God everyday for my beautiful, nblessed life and all the wonderful people in it – every pain makes the sweetness of these nmoments and experiences even more special.” In another post, Lee filmed herself dancing nto the sweet melodies of Barry White, delighting her fans on the social media nplatform. Lee’s followers were thrilled to see her enjoying herself. nAs one user pointed out, “Happy girls are the nprettiest and you look happy.” While another commented, “Enjoy every minute of your life. nYou fought hard enough for it!” Sandra Lee is certainly having the time of nher life, having reached a milestone goal in her well-documented weight loss journey. On nJuly 6th, Lee left her fans speechless after posing in front of a mirror to reveal that she nlost over 20 pounds since lockdown. She wrote, “Wanted to meet my goal weight nbefore I turned 55 tomorrow but I’m pretty happy with nwhere I am – I feel great!” According to People, Lee has been on her nweight loss journey for several months. She describes the process of shedding those nunwanted pounds as “not easy,” but she’s stuck with it, practicing intermittent fasting and ngetting in her 10,000 (or more!) steps per day. Her stated goal has been to lose 30 pounds nin all. Lee topped out at 170 during 2020, a difficult year for her that saw her dealing nwith a COVID diagnosis as well as putting on more than the dreaded “quarantine 15.” As nshe admitted in a January 4th Instagram post, “None of my clothes fit and worse I feel terrible. I feel my very best at 140 npounds-I’m 5’9″ that’s a good weight for me.” Lee said that her new healthy eating nplan would exclude both red meat and alcohol while including minimal ncarbs, lots of fruits and veggies, fermented foods such as pickles and nsauerkraut, and lots and lots of water. So whatever happened to call off nthe long-planned Lee-Cuomo nuptials? Nothing dramatic, at least naccording to the former couple. Lee never once spoke out about nCuomo’s numerous alleged infidelities, and her final word on the relationship came in nthe form of a joint statement issued with Cuomo: “Over the recent past, we have realized that nour lives have gone in different directions and our romantic relationship has nturned into a deep friendship.” Even if Lee was disappointed that she nnever got to become New York’s first lady, she’s evidently put all that behind nher. From what we can see now, she’s looking ahead to leading nher better-than-ever best life. Check out one of our newest nvideos right here!
