Sandra Lee Didn’t Want GOP Stinker Paul Ryan Near Her Food Segment For “Fox & Friends”
Celebrity chef Sandra Lee didn’t want Paul Ryan stinking up her cooking segment on “Fox & Friends” during a recent taping. The Food Network star, who has been dating New York’s Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo for several years, didn’t hide her distaste for the GOP leader, who was in the same Fox studio filming an interview.
A source told Page Six,
“Paul Ryan was on the segment before Sandra, and the hosts asked him to hang around for Sandra’s cooking feature to try the food. But in the break before her demo, she said to Ryan and some others there, ‘I need you to go away so I can collect my thoughts, prepare, and get ready for the segment.”
The source continued, “It wasn’t a very friendly ‘Fox & Friends.’ Sandra wasn’t even comfortable with having Paul Ryan on the same stage as her during the commercial break, never mind on air. It was very frosty. She simply does not believe in anything Ryan believes in.”
The source added that Ryan remained off-camera while Lee did her “Cooking With Friends” segment with show hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade. She prepared a Mother’s Day menu of coffee cake, chocolate cupcakes and chocolate-covered bacon. Lee also discussed a Manhattan Magazine cover story in which she champions small businesses.
Another source tells us, “Steve [Doocy] brought Ryan over to the kitchen to try the chocolate-covered bacon, and Sandra looked annoyed. She made a dismissive remark and looked away.”
Clap it up for our girl Sandra Lee. Much respect for this one. FDB!!!
