A blank table, non-processed food and a bartender screaming “last call” are just a few things that Sandra Lee hates.| You can now add “Paul Ryan” to that list. Sandra was doing a cooking segment on Fox & Friends last week and House Speaker Paul Ryan was also on the show. The rumor from Page Six went that Fox & Friends’ hosts asked Paul to stay for Sandra Lee’s cooking segment, but like Nicole Kidman and Giada’s focacca, she wanted nothing to do with him and shooed him away. A source said then that to Sandra, Paul Ryan is like a plain flour tortilla that hasn’t been covered with microwaved apricot jam, brie cheese and turkey lunch meat. He goes against everything she believes in.The culinary angel, master tablescape artist and breast cancer survivor was at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Hot Pink Party in NYC the other night and Page Six asked her about their story.The First Lady of New York confirmed Page Six’s story and went even further by saying that Paul Ryan’s presence sent rage flowing through her Alizé-filled veins and she started to shake. If you added a scoop of Banana Strawberry Nesquik to Alizé and rage, you’d have a cocktail straight from the mind of Sandra Lee and I’d bet she’d hate drink the hell out of it.
“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. 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.
I have been really surprised about the reaction . . . I think it is because I have never stated my opinion. 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.”
