Sandra Lee is celebrating life after successfully undergoing a series of “traumatic physical surgeries.”
Now the ex-girlfriend of former Gov. Andrew Cuomo has posed nude in “New York Moves” –a coffee table book to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the magazine’s Moves Power Women gala.
Lee is featured in the tome with nearly 200 women, including rocker Pat Benatar, actresses Felicity Huffman and Mira Sorvino, famed lawyer Gloria Allred and Hillary Clinton’s right-hand woman Huma Abedin.

Lee is the only subject who posed in her birthday suit, decked out in just a string of pearls.
Moonah Ellison, publisher and editor for ‘Moves,’ told Page Six that Lee is a “powerhouse.”
She added of those chosen for the book: “The essence for the search… is to look for the women who make a difference for other women’s journeys… having a voice for women who don’t have a voice, and Sandra was in that space.”
A source close to Lee, 57, told Page Six she agreed to pose nude because “she was really tired of hearing about women who feel shamed or stigma from aging – or shame in their health challenges.”
A source further told us that Lee ”felt very comfortable and confident,” adding that she wanted to do the shoot “for those women, who feel like they have to hide… or think they’re too old to sit for a photo nude. This photo is for them.”
