How do you keep a governor happy? New York's First Girlfriend Sandra Lee shared with Vogue her semi-homemade, slightly obsessive tricks for connubial bliss with live-in Andrew Cuomo. The multi-millionaire Food Network star, 44, has reorganized her company so she'd have more time to devote to her guy: "I've always seen my job as making life easier for my audience, and now my job is to make life easier for him." Other revealing bits:

• Guests to their Mount Kisco home are asked to wear slippers in their all-white (ivory carpet, decorative polar bears, mother-of-pearl coffee table) living room: "Some people think I have an issue with cleanliness, but to me it's just so pretty."

• A Founding Fathers theme for their dining room, complete with plates imprinted with historic buildings (Mount Vernon, Independence Hall.) "I like to create what I call 'tablescapes.' It's so much more fun when you organize your table around a theme, don't you think?"

• She's confident he's no Eliot Spitzer ("Oh, no, I don't have to worry about that.") Marriage? "Right now I'm happy being a girlfriend, but someday Andrew and I will get there."

Please watch this nitwit's show on the Food Network before you give her any press that makes her look legitimate. She's a joke.

Nitwit is exactly right. Blech.

Agree - she's a "nitwit".

She only had a show because her older multi-millionaire husband paid for it - once they split her show disappeared.

She's trying to make a comeback but she's just not good and/or believeable.
