Chelsea Handler is “O-V-E-R” her crush on Andrew Cuomo.
The comedian, 46, revealed she had a change of heart in her feelings for the New York governor, 63, after multiple women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct.
“I found out all the stuff we found out about him … and I thought, well, I guess, this is a guy that doesn’t like it offered up. So my crush with him is, yes, O-V-E-R,” she said on the New York Times’ “Sway” podcast Thursday.
Handler first revealed that she had her eye on Cuomo in her HBO Max special “Evolution,” which debuted in October 2020 amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
“I offered myself up to Andrew Cuomo,” she recalled to “Sway” host Kara Swisher. “In the pandemic, I was very turned on by his morning news conferences, as many of us were.”
Handler claimed the politician subsequently reached out to her, leading to “a couple of conversations” between them. After saying Cuomo was metaphorically “feeling himself” on the phone, Handler joked that he “could have literally been feeling himself.”
“I’m not sure. We weren’t FaceTiming, so I can’t tell if he was pulling a Jeffrey Toobin,” she said, referencing the writer’s November firing from the New Yorker for masturbating during a Zoom call with colleagues.
Handler said that she was preparing to film “Evolution” on the East Coast at the time of her correspondence with Cuomo and thought they could meet up for a drink while she was in town. However, that never happened.
“He blew me off,” she said.
Cuomo said on “The View” in October that while he is a “big fan” of California-based Handler, he only dates “New York residents.”
He has denied all allegations and refused to resign as governor.
