Chris Cuomo makes ‘official re-entry’ from basement after coronavirus quarantine
Over a week after he was reportedly spotted out and about in the Hamptons, coronavirus-stricken CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has released a video of his “official re-entry” from his quarantine.
“All right, here it is … the official re-entry from the basement, cleared by the CDC,” the 49-year-old says in the roughly one-minute video shot by his 17-year-old daughter Bella and posted on Instagram.
“This is what I’ve been dreaming of literally for weeks. This is the dream, just to be back here, doing normal things,” he adds in the living room of his $2.9 million home as he joins his wife Cristina and two other kids, Carolina and Mario.
“My wife. She was cleared by the CDC,” the newsman adds. “She doesn’t have fever. She doesn’t have the symptoms anymore.”
Over Easter weekend, Cuomo got into a heated altercation with a 65-year-old East Hampton resident named David who was riding his bike when he saw who he thought was the anchor with a couple of women and three kids.
“I said to him, ‘Your brother is the coronavirus czar, and you’re not even following his rules — unnecessary travel,’ ” David told The Post, referring to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
According to David, Chris Cuomo snarled back: “Who the hell are you?! I can do what I want!”
During Monday night’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” the governor’s brother said his wife “has proven again that she is the stronger part of the couple” after she “powered through” her battle with the illness herself.
“She’s out of quarantine, and she dealt with it in a fraction of the time. So we are among the blessed,” Cuomo said on his show.
Despite his emergence from household purgatory, Cuomo told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta that his illness put him into a “depression.”
“I have never had anything like this in my life. It humbled me,” Cuomo said. “I know people are dealing with so much worse, but for me, personally, I’m not that strong, and it really tore me up inside and out in terms of making me reassess things about myself and my life.
“It scared me, like some people, when they get a heart attack. I know this is nothing like a heart attack, but for me it was,” he added.
