New York’s first girlfriend, Sandra Lee, stormed out of BG restaurant at Bergdorf Goodman after thinking she heard offensive comments about her “semi-homemade” empire. The Post’s Kirsten Fleming reports that Calvin Klein’s ex Nick Gruber was dining with new boyfriend John Luciano and several friends near the entrance to the cafe Tuesday night when Lee, the longtime girlfriend of Gov. Cuomo, came in to sit near the back of the restaurant with an unidentified male friend. Gruber and others at his table didn’t recognize Lee, whose “Semi-Homemade Cooking” empire spawned a Food Network show, magazine and
Oh my, the "first-girlfriend" of Gov. Coumo---on TV--realty cooking show--that is bad for his political life; divorced Kerry Kennedy and she just lucked out of a DUI even when hitting a truck in the rear after taking ambien.....just cannot support him with his ex-wife and girlfriend always in the news and on TV. Just chasing those dollars with writing all of those cookbooks. Wish they would just go back to Wasilla----oops, New York and get out of the limelight.
Since all the players are Dems everything is just fine, but let a Republican´s name get in the news--------different story!
Because she is gov. Coumo´s live in girlfriend. Family values Dem style. Same withnbloomberg and his live in who happens to be on board of corporation that owns Zucotti Park -ground zero for Occupy Wall Street. Now we learn that Zcotti is part of Common Cause. Know the Enemy.
I´ve seen the show a few times in the past and it´s not really all that bad (and she is a little cutie to be honest). It´s basically about taking stuff you bought from the store and making a few simple changes to make it look (and hopefully taste) better. It´s for people who don´t have the time or desire to cook and lets them do something a little nicer than prepackaged meals. I do think she needs to grow a thicker skin. And I do think those twinks were intentionally trying to insult her. It wasn´t acoustics that let her hear them, it was their intentionally LOUD voices.
This woman has created enough hideous table scapes (what she calls the monstrosities that fill a table to match the awful food she cooks) to launch a cruise ship. Now living with Cuomo, her back goes up easily...hey, he´s the NY governor and she´s his arm candy. His daughters apparently also live with them. If this new doyenne wants to be above reproach she ought to think before she acts. The restaurant thing is as phony as she is and her power play is transparent. I don´t think she could cook her way out of a paper bag but I gave her credit for her hard work. That just went bye-bye as she shifted into the real second hand mama and revealer herself as just another whiny and pukey demonRAT.
“She takes an angel food cake, slices it in half, opens a can of frosting, frosts the cake, calls it semi-homemade, and makes a lot of money.” She is just mad because he left out the main ingredient. COOL WHIP.
This white blonde once made "Kwanzaa Cake" on her show which could have been renamed "Dog´s Dinner." It consisted of a store-bought angel food cake covered with chocolate icing, canned apple pie filling dumped in the hollow center of the cake, with three regular candles, one red, one black and one green, stuck in the cake. Lastly, and to dress it up I suppose, she then dumped acorn meat over the icing. When I first saw it I thought it was a joke. But no. She was getting down with the brothas and sistahs Betty Crocker-style.
Watched her show....once. She always pushes the cocktails and she makes her lasagna with tomato soup....blech
It has been written she has not always lived in a fancy house complete with cooks and bottle washers, butlers. She had family obligations, no money, and many mouths to feed. For this reason, she is cut a little slack from the Texas viewers nick of the woods. Sandra has done well for herself, pulled out of misfortune, but still on the prowl for easy cooking Personally, McDonalds would be a choice before considering Sandra Lee´s dinner parties.
I give her credit for pulling herself up by the bootstraps, as it were, but somehow she comes across as less Shania Twain (who also raised her siblings, while giving up a shot at stardom) than Scarlett O´Hara (who looked after her family but became a ruthless golddigger in the process). I cannot STAND to watch her. I´d rather watch that hideously awful Nadia chick on the Cooking Channel than her. And that´s saying something. This little episode validates what I think of her.
A friend worked for a magazine and worked with several of the Food Channel people on photography layouts. She said Paula Dean was a lovely down to earth lady and Sandra was a pain in the neck....nothing pleased her.
If you get a chance, read her biography sometime. Yeah, she cooks with Bisquick but the reason is she learned to cook for her siblings using the limited supplies available to her. Instead of wallowing in self pity, she tried to make meals interesting and festive. There are MILLIONS of Americans struggling right now that could learn a lot from her and her spirit. Count me as one of her fans.
#33 -- While I admire her tenacity and the fact that she came from nothing...she didn´t work her way into "striking it rich." As I understand it, her first husband was a multi-millionaire, and he helped her catapult her career. Every once in a while she does a recipe I really like...for instance, one that I actually added to my recipe box is her recipe for tangerine teriyaki baby back ribs...they´re actually very good and very easy.
With all that said, she came from nothing but alas, she is a stinkin´, dyed-in-the-wool, liberal...and now can be classified as limousine liberal to boot!
I wonder what the comments would look like if Sandra Lee was a Republican and lived with a Republican governor who was not married and had two children.
Are you kidding me?! Did you seriously just ask that? Your make-believe Republican Governor would have never been elected b/c the press would have crucified him for the exact same life-style choice shown by Gov. Cuomo. What media have you been watching?
The "Piano Man" who became one of the world´s best-selling artists of all time with such hits as "Just the Way You Are," "Uptown Girl" and "Allentown" is being awarded the nation´s highest honor Sunday for influencing American culture through the arts. Billy Joel joins Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, opera star Martina Arroyo and actress Shirley MacLaine in receiving the Kennedy Center Honors. All of them have been playing music, dancing or singing since they were children -- and have never stopped. Joel said the honor stands apart from his six Grammys. "This is different. It´s our nation´s capital," he
Couples should not have children if their relationship is not stable enough to merit getting married, a senior High Court judge said yesterday. Sir Paul Coleridge said those couples whose relationship was stable enough to cope with the rigours of child rearing should marry. But the judge, who is retiring from the bench next year after decades as a family lawyer and judge, said those who did not feel ready for children should not have them. He said couples had no right to have children, “you only have responsibilities if you have them”. Sir Paul criticised warring parents’ obsessions with
Thursday’s sad passing of world civil rights icon Nelson Mandela was a frequent topic of discussion at Friday’s White House daily briefing, as several reporters asked Press Secretary Jay Carney to elaborate on Mandela’s influence, and on details surrounding his funeral. CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta asked about “this great impact” that Mandela had on the President, while repeatedly stressing that President Obama had only met Mandela once. Acosta began with a personal observation, telling Carney that “it just sort of struck me that the President talked about this great impact that he had on his life, but
As an unrelenting wintry storm threatens to choke the Mid-Atlantic into Sunday evening, intrepid NFL players duked it out in Philadelphia amid white-out conditions. The potent system battered the South and Midwest in recent days and now, as it creeps East, it has the Eagles and visiting Detroit Lions both battling major snow. While the blizzard has professional athletes struggling to stay ahead of the weather, a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow is delivering a sloppy smorgasbord from the Mid-Atlantic through southeastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey.
The two drugs have been declared equivalently miraculous. Tested side by side in six major trials, both prevent blindness in a common old-age affliction. Biologically, they are cousins. They’re even made by the same company. But one holds a clear price advantage. Avastin costs about $50 per injection. Lucentis costs about $2,000 per injection. Doctors choose the more expensive drug more than half a million times every year, a choice that costs the Medicare program, the largest single customer, an extra $1 billion or more annually. Spending that much may make little sense for a country burdened by ever- rising health
LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif.— An Olympic gold medal won by Jesse Owens at the 1936 Berlin Games has sold for a record $1.4 million in an online auction. SCP Auctions said Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner Ron Burkle paid $1,466,574, the highest price for a piece of Olympic memorabilia. The online auction ended Sunday. "We just hope that it´s purchased by an institution where the public could have access to it, a museum or something like that," Owens´ daughter, Marlene Owens Rankin of Chicago, told The Associated Press before the sale. The auction house said Burkle, who also owns William Faulkner´s Nobel Prize
The State Department on Friday defended its decision to commission a $1 million sculpture for the American embassy in London just days before the partial government shutdown in October. The department awarded the contract for the granite sculpture to Sean Scully, an Irish-born American artist, as part of its Art in Embassies program, which curates exhibitions for American embassy and consulate facilities. "Like much of the art purchased by this program, this piece was purchased under the market price after considerable negotiation with both the artist and the gallery. This is an important part of our diplomatic presence overseas," spokeswoman
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
