Cuomo on Thursday said on the program, 'On my dating life: I'm only dating in-state residents, I'm dating New York residents,' as he continues working on battling the coronavirus pandemic in his home state.

He left the door open for Handler, who resides in Los Angeles: 'If Chelsea changes her residence, then maybe we can work it out.'

Handler spoke about how handsome she thought Cuomo was in a Wednesday appearance on the show. She said she found herself attracted to him watching his daily COVID-19 update conferences this past spring amid the massive outbreak in New York.

The View's Sara Haines asked Handler what she found so alluring about the governor, while slipping in the fact he would be appearing on the show the next day.

'First of all, he's like a big giant: He came in like the Incredible Hulk, right?' 'Handler said. We needed someone to come on the scene. We were so dehydrated for real leadership.'

She continued: 'Then he came on the scene, looking like this big, Italian hunk. He was like, "Wear a mask," I was like, "I'll wear a mask, I'll put a mask on every part of my body. I want to flatten your curve, and you can flatten my curve and then we can both apex together."'

Cuomo laughed at Handler's words, saying in response: 'I've had a lot of conversations about flattening the curve, but never quite that way. I'm a big fan of Chelsea's and she is great. We have fun.'
