Sandra Lee Kicks Paul Ryan Out of Fox News Cooking Segment
It wasn't a very friendly "Fox and Friends" Tuesday when TV chef and author Sandra Lee asked House Speaker Paul Ryan to scram before her cooking segment on the conservative news network's morning show.
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.'"
Lee's beef with Ryan likely stems from the Wisconsin Republican's continued attempts to gut Obamacare. A breast cancer survivor, Lee is the longtime girlfriend of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has publicly blasted the House Speaker over his "rabid conservative orthodoxy."
Eventually Ryan made it into Lee's studio kitchen to sample her chocolate-covered bacon. According to Page Six's source, "Sandra looked annoyed. She made a dismissive remark and looked away."
