Gov. Andrew Cuomo now ‘persona non grata’ in Hamptons social scene, told to stay away

Disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is being told that he is no longer welcome in the Hamptons or the Martha’s Vineyard social scene and that he should permanently stay far, far away.

“I can tell you that the Hamptons or Martha’s Vineyard is not where he should be going. He might want to get a tent and go to the Adirondacks to eat in,” society columnist R. Couri Hay told Fox News. “Andrew Cuomo socially is persona non grata everywhere – and I’m not sure when that veil will be lifted and when he’ll be allowed back into society. It’s not going to be anytime soon. A lot of people are very angry and disappointed.”

“I can tell you if Andrew Cuomo tried to walk into a party with Leticia James all holy you know what would break out. Now is the time for Gov. Cuomo to stay home, stay in, and reflect on his life and what he’s done, and what he’s going to do next. This is not the time to be wining and dining with voters or with the high society of the Hamptons,” declared Hay, who also owns a public relations firm.

“Now some of the restaurants and nightclubs might think it’s absolutely interesting that Andrew Cuomo would be here,” he said. “I very much doubt that they will be rolling out the red carpet for Gov. Cuomo. Now you’re in the high season and every single weekend there are both private parties and charitable events people go to. My advice to the former Gov. would be don’t show up.”

“The next place for him to go is to church and to see his confessor,” the PR professional quipped. “He should give thanks and seek redemption. This is not the time for cocktail parties and fancy boat trips. Really the best advice for Gov. Cuomo is to disappear for now.”

“He’s already rattling his page and talking about next moves. I’m sure that as he leaves he’s already planning. We just don’t know what that will be,” Hay noted.

All of this follows Cuomo’s announcement on Tuesday that he will resign in 14 days after he apparently came to the conclusion that he could not politically weather the storm enveloping him after New York Attorney General Letitia James released a report that found he sexually harassed 11 women.

Cuomo’s younger brother Chris Cuomo, who has a mansion in the Hamptons, has been caught up in the scandal as well after advising his brother on how to handle the sexual harassment allegations. He was spotted boating for hours in the Hamptons while he took a “planned” vacation from CNN that coincided with his brother’s political career imploding. The New York Times is reporting that Chris Cuomo actually advised his brother to resign.

Gov. Cuomo has reportedly become a fixture in the Hamptons social scene, schmoozing with celebrities, the wealthy, and the elite. He’s also said to be a regular at Scotto’s Italian Pork Store in Hampton Bays, Southampton’s Going Nuts candy store, and the White Water Outfitters tackle shop according to The New York Times.

“New York tough means New York loving, and I love New York and I love you,” Cuomo said on Tuesday as he announced his resignation. “I would never want to be unhelpful in any way, and I think given the circumstances, the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing, and therefore, that’s what I’ll do.”

Cuomo is still denying any wrongdoing. In his stead, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will take over in two weeks as the first female governor of New York.

It would seem that Cuomo is not welcome anywhere at the moment and neither are those still supporting him. The mockery of the “Luv Gov” is legendary on social media:
