Andrew Cuomo doesn't mind the "Cuomosexual" label

In a new interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the New York governor reacts to his and brother Chris Cuomo's adoring fans -- who have called themselves "Cuomosexuals." 

"Yeah, I think that's a good thing," he says with a smile. "I don't think it's a bad thing." 

Chelsea Handler and Jada Pinkett Smith are just a few of the celebs who have expressed their admiration -- and crush on -- Andrew as he leads his state through the coronavirus pandemic. Ellen DeGeneres also counts herself a fan of Andrew and Chris. 

"Yes, but you enjoy me more," Andrew teases. "Didn't you say that earlier?" 

All jokes aside, Andrew has a lot of respect for his younger brother and how he continued to broadcast his CNN show, Cuomo Prime Time, while battling COVID-19. 

"You can't be closer than I am with my brother, Chris. We have been all our lives. He is my best friend and my little best friend," Andrew says. "We have a very special relationship."

"I just felt bad during that whole coronavirus thing. One of the peculiar, hellish facts -- he gets sick, his wife gets sick, he has the kids in the houses and I can't even go to help," he notes. "That's one of the bizarre things here."
