Last week, Semi-Homemade superstar Sandra Lee reportedly told Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, "I need you to go away," refusing to allow him to appear in a cooking segment on Fox & Friends. Now, she's shared with Page Sixthat she detests the man.
Lee, a longtime celebrity chef and the girlfriend of Democratic New York governor, Andrew Cuomo, had the following to say about Ryan:
"At first what occurred to me is that we are both from Wisconsin. And I realized he is the one thing from Wisconsin that I cannot tolerate or stomach. I just do not stand for anything he stands for."
Naturally, when Ryan tried to join her onstage during her cooking segment, Lee did not react well.
"I was so angry I was shaking, and I never had that experience before in my life or on any show. I love Fox & Friends. That was the only time that happened to me. I do not get angry for too long. He left the set, and I was back to Sandra Lee."
While Lee may not have made a loud political statement on the air--aside from refusing to let Ryan cook fritters--she's making one now:
"Just because I chose not to state my opinion does not mean I do not have one. When it comes to health care or childhood hunger issues, I am not going to be quiet, tolerant, or silent about my experiences or my convictions."
Here's an idea, Paul: quit your day job and learn how to make some damn crescent rolls.
