The ladies of “The View” grilled New York Governor Andrew Cuomo about more than just his state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic during Thursday’s episode.
All serious subjects aside, Sunny Hostin got down to brass tacks: “Governor, are you ghosting Chelsea Handler?”
After a good belly laugh, Cuomo addressed that very important question — and weighed in on Handler’s comments about wanting to “flatten his curve” during her appearance on the daytime political talk show the day before.
“I’ve had a lot of conversations about flattening the curve, but never quite that way,” Cuomo laughed. “I’m a big fan of Chelsea and she is great. We have fun. But on my dating life, you know, I am only dating at this point, in-state residents. I’m dating New York residents. So if Chelsea changes her residence, then maybe we can work it out.”
Whoopi Goldberg interjected with a joke: “Don’t say that, because she will be living in New York next week.”
“I said maybe. Maybe we can work it out,” he added with a laugh.
Handler asked “The View” co-hosts to follow up with Cuomo about agreeing to go on a date with her and then ghosting on Wednesday’s episode, noting that she “did ask him out on a date. And he did say yes. And then I never heard from him.”
Well, Cuomo didn’t seem too averse to the idea of trying again. Maybe it’s not too late for this potential celebrity couple?
Your move, Chelsea.

10 Scene-Stealing Cats in Movies, From 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' to 'Captain Marvel' (Photos)
Cat, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961)
Let's make this clear: Holly Golightly does not own this cat. He belongs to nobody and nobody belongs to him. But that doesn't stop him from playing a pivotal role in the movie, including the tear-jerking final scene.
Tonto, "Harry and Tonto" (1974)
Art Carney's portrayal of a feisty retiree on a cross-country road trip won him an Academy Award, while his feline costar didn't even get a nomination. What gives?
Twentieth Century Fox
Jonesy, "Alien" (1979)
This orange tabby was the unofficial mascot of the USCSS Nostromo and one of the few crew members to survive a Xenomorph attack. He also remains the only character to successfully steal a scene from Sigourney Weaver.
Twentieth Century Fox
Church, "Pet Sematary" (1989, 2019)
Ellie Creed's playful kitty Winston Churchill was run over by a truck and came back from the dead as Church to terrorize his former owners. That's something to consider before burying your cat in a cursed cemetery.
Binx, "Hocus Pocus" (1993)
Thackery Binx was just a normal teenage boy in 1693 before he was cursed to live forever in the body of a black cat. But hey, everyone goes through weird phases in their teens.
Buena Vista Pictures
Mr. Bigglesworth, "Austin Powers" series (1997-2002)
When Dr. Evil's cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, gets upset, people die. Honestly, Dr. Evil doesn't sound too different from the average cat owner.
New Line Cinema
Mr. Jinx, "Meet the Parents" (2000)
This movie should actually be called "Meet the Parents' Cat," because Mr. Jinx is the real star. The perpetually-frowning Himalayan cat is Jack Byrnes' pride and joy, and knows how to come when called, wave and even use the toilet. That's called a 'triple threat' in showbiz.
Fat Louie, "The Princess Diaries" series (2001-04)
Behind every great princess of Genovia is an equally great black-and-white kitty.
Buena Vista Pictures
Ulysses, "Inside Llewyn Davis" (2013)
This honey-colored tabby joined Oscar Isaac's grumpy folk musician as he wandered around New York City and Chicago in the Coen brothers' film. Though he takes up more screen time than many of the human actors, the feline actor isn't named in the credits -- perhaps because the character was played by three separate (but equally adorable) animal performers.
Goose, "Captain Marvel" (2019)
Okay, Goose is technically not a cat. Carol Danvers' orange sidekick is actually a Flerken (an alien with massive tentacles hidden inside her mouth), but Goose's fluffy coat and knack for getting into trouble puts her firmly in the cat category.
