New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reacted to Chelsea Handler’s claim that she ghosted him, in an interview on The View on Thursday.
The 62-year-old politician was asked about a potential romance with the Chelsea Lately personality, 45, on the ABC program, a day after Handler’s claim.
‘I did have a conversation with Cuomo a few months ago, and I did ask him out on a date,’ Handler said Wednesday. ‘And he did say yes. And then I never heard from him.’

Cuomo on Thursday said on the program, ‘On my dating life: I’m only dating in-state residents, I’m dating New York residents,’ as he continues working on battling the coronavirus pandemic in his home state.
He left the door open for Handler, who resides in Los Angeles: ‘If Chelsea changes her residence, then maybe we can work it out.’
Handler spoke about how handsome she thought Cuomo was in a Wednesday appearance on the show. She said she found herself attracted to him watching his daily COVID-19 update conferences this past spring amid the massive outbreak in New York.
The View’s Sara Haines asked Handler what she found so alluring about the governor, while slipping in the fact he would be appearing on the show the next day.

Hubba, hubba: Handler called Cuomo a ‘big, Italian hunk’ during her chat on The View
‘First of all, he’s like a big giant: He came in like the Incredible Hulk, right?’ ‘Handler said. We needed someone to come on the scene. We were so dehydrated for real leadership.’
She continued: ‘Then he came on the scene, looking like this big, Italian hunk. He was like, “Wear a mask,” I was like, “I’ll wear a mask, I’ll put a mask on every part of my body. I want to flatten your curve, and you can flatten my curve and then we can both apex together.”‘
Cuomo laughed at Handler’s words, saying in response: ‘I’ve had a lot of conversations about flattening the curve, but never quite that way. I’m a big fan of Chelsea’s and she is great. We have fun.’

Handler’s love life was broached in a subsequent question from guest host Ana Navarro.
She mentioned Handler’s current spat with ex-boyfriend 50 Cent after he pledged his support for President Donald Trump earlier this month.
‘You sound like you’re going to be very busy here saving the Republic,’ she laughed. ‘And please, please, tell 50 [Cent] if he’s going to be joking around about supporting Trump, he might want to wait until after the election to tweet out such jokes, ’cause they ain’t very funny right now.’
