ALBANY, N.Y. – Food television star Sandra Lee says she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The popular lifestyle personality and live-in girlfriend of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo divulged the news on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an interview aired Tuesday.
The 48-year-old Lee says she found out she had cancer late last month in a phone call from her doctor just after she finished a photo shoot for People magazine. She says she didn’t cry but was “stunned” by the news.
Lee says she has had a lumpectomy and will undergo a double mastectomy this week.

Cuomo says he expects to take some personal time to be with Lee as she handles the “trauma of her operation” and her recovery.
She and Cuomo share a home in Westchester County.
