"I just want to be happy and free, and do what I want to do," Lee shared. "John was so good to me when I was going through my breakup with Andrew… We saw each other in Monaco and I said, 'You would know me with Andrew Cuomo,' and he goes, 'I know you because you're a great chef.'"
"He was so sweet. He is a good guy," she added. "And he took time to reassure me when I was going through a hard time. A lot of people wouldn't do that."
Meanwhile, Cuomo and his brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, have both become more prevalent public figures since the start of the coronavirus outbreak last month. Chris, 49, who tested positive for COVID-19 last month, is still hosting his CNN show, Cuomo Prime Time, from home and often interviews his 62-year-old brother, Andrew.
The source jokingly added, "Although, Chris doesn’t understand why people think Andrew is so handsome."
Despite the Internet's obsession with the two public figures, they're not letting their popularity distract them from the work at hand.
"Both brothers know the responsibility they have during this global crisis and they take their jobs seriously," the source noted. "Chris has lighthearted moments during interviews with his brother, but isn’t afraid to ask him tough questions and hold him accountable. They both respect what the other does, and both are extremely proud of one another despite the ribbing."
