Sandra Lee Handles A Question
Now that Maria and Arnold are out of Sacramento, we have Sandra Lee and Andrew to attract our attntion in Albany. Sandra does not seem to be handling press questions very well, with not even so much as a "semi-homemade" answer to a press question.
At least the pre-dinner cocktails and tablescapes might get more interesting in the Albany governor's mansion now.
As the article said:
'The press release announcing the event boasted that Lee intended to "use her added notoriety as Governor Andrew Cuomo's significant other to raise awareness of hunger in New York State." '
It's like politicians/celebrities and their kids. If the press is asked not to cover the kids, they'll usually be respectful. But, you can't bring the kids into the spotlight and then ask the press to back off. It's really an all or nothing situation.
She can choose to either promote her relationship (as the release did) or she can have it be completely off-limit.
I'm not a bit Sandra fan, but I think she handled herself very well. I particularly liked her remarks about children.
I can't get over the cocktail Christmas tree of hers below and her excitement over it. I think this tops the Kwanzaa cake.
