Kerry Kennedy Cuomo was in a dishy mood the other night at a Beverly Hills dinner party for husband Andrew Cuomo, the former Clinton cabinet secretary who is running for governor of New York. "Want to hear about our first date?" she asked. Yes, please. As she tells it, the two met at a political banquet in New York in the late 1980s when Cuomo was HUD secretary and Kennedy was coming into her own as a human rights advocate. "So, what are you working on?" was Kennedy's chatty gambit.
