Christina Cuomo looks zen at yoga class as her husband disputes sexual assault report

Chris Cuomo’s wife, Cristina, looked serene at an Instagram Live yoga class on Wednesday – the morning after news broke that her ex-husband, a CNN host, was accused of sexually assaulting an ABC temp in 2011.

Christina noted in her “self-improvement” exercise video that she turned off the comments, telling her viewers to “remember” the “power of the word.”

“I turned off comments because the power of the word is so powerful, and remember that later and as you move forward throughout the day,” she said in her video, which had 1,291 views as of Wednesday afternoon.

“Think about how much your words affect other people. Those that you write and those that you speak,” concluded Christina, continuing to practice yoga with instructor Erica Halveil.

Meanwhile, Chris Cuomo struggles with the power his own words hold after a woman says they coerced her into revealing how he allegedly invited her to his office for sex and forced himself on her when she refused.

The woman, who has not been named and identified as Jane Doe, detailed her account in a New York Times report released late Tuesday night.

In December 2021, her lawyer Debra Katz wrote to CNN to report the alleged assault after Cuomo was removed from office for helping his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, with his own sexual harassment scandal.

She says she was forced to speak out after she saw him state on live TV in March 2021 that he was “deep and deep” concerned about the #MeToo movement and the allegations of sexual harassment against his brother.

“Before we start tonight, let me say something that I’m sure is very obvious to those who watch my show. I will be frank with you. Obviously I’m aware of what’s going on with my brother and obviously I can’t cover it because he’s my brother,” Chris said in March 2021.

“Now, of course, CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively and they will continue to do so. These questions have always worried me very deeply, and very deeply. I just wanted to tell you this,” he said.

The woman identified as Jane Doe is not the only woman to accuse him of misconduct; Shelley Ross, a former ABC executive, said he groped her at a 2005 party, and Melanie Buck claimed she asked to be removed from Cuomo Prime Time because she found his behavior threatening.

The accusations are not the only reason for his firing, but according to The New York Times, they contributed to the wider web of scandals that followed him and eventually became “too big” for CNN President Jeff Zucker.

An unidentified woman says she was forced to come forward after she saw him state on live TV in March 2021 that he cares “deeply and deeply” about the #MeToo movement and the sexual harassment allegations against his brother.

Zucker resigned for failing to disclose an affair with top aide Allison Gollust, who also left the company last night. All three are accused of violating the ethics of “newsrooms” because of their inappropriately close relationship with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

It was previously known that Chris was accused of sexual harassment, but on Tuesday evening, new details of the accusation emerged.

According to the woman, in 2011 she worked as a temporary employee at ABC News and hoped for a permanent role.

According to her, Chris invited her to his office for lunch. She came, but found that there was no food. He then allegedly began to “molest” her for the purpose of sex, and when she refused him, she says that he raped her. No other details about the alleged attack were released. The woman said she then sent him friendly emails to try and smooth things over.

As the #MeToo movement gained momentum, she said she heard from Chris, by then a celebrity CNN anchor. He said he wanted to talk about the firm she worked for.

She said she interpreted this as a veiled threat not to come out with her #MeToo statement. A spokesman for Cuomo denied the allegations made in the letter.

Chris and his wife Christina have been married since 2001.  He has always denied allegations of sexual harassment.

Zucker is said to have been hurt and “deluded” by Cuomo, who helped his brother with his own scandal while also working online.

Zucker and Chris were close – in 2018, when Zucker was recovering from heart surgery, the couple took long walks in Central Park.

Late Tuesday, a spokesman for the former CNN anchor issued a statement regarding The New York Times report and insisted that the real reason for the firing of all three was their connection to Governor Cuomo.

“Clearly, it was never about an undisclosed relationship,” a Wall Street Journal reporter said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“As Mr. Cuomo previously stated, Mr. Zucker and Ms. [Allison] Gollust was not only fully aware, but also fully supportive of what he was doing to help his brother.

“It’s still an open question when Warner Media is going to release the results of its investigation and explain the alleged basis for firing Mr. Cuomo.”

In November, then-CNN President Jeff Zucker told Cuomo they were removing him from office for his part in helping his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, amid allegations of sexual misconduct against the politician.

Chris Cuomo reportedly offered to resign, and Zucker allegedly informed him that he would be able to return to the network at some point.

But 24 hours after Zucker removed Cuomo from office, CNN received a letter from the woman’s lawyer describing Cuomo’s removal as “an abuse of power at CNN to silence my client,” according to The Times.

Shelly Ross accused CNN host Chris Cuomo of molesting her at a party in 2005.

Shelley Ross, the former executive producer of Cuomo’s Primetime Live, previously accused him of molesting her at a party in 2005.

Later that week, Zucker fired Cuomo, telling him that drumming scandals had become “too much for us,” according to the paper.

Zucker himself resigned on February 2 after revealing his romantic relationship with chief executive Allison Gollust.

Hollast resigned Tuesday night as CNN’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer months after an internal investigation into her alleged “inappropriate” relationship with Zucker.

The 49-year-old left the network after an independent investigation into “issues involving Chris Cuomo and former Gov. Andrew Cuomo,” a source confirmed to .

Gollust acknowledged her departure in a bitter email to her staff, alleging that CNN was trying to publicly undermine her reputation: “WarnerMedia’s statement today is an attempt to get back at me and change the media narrative after their disastrous treatment over the past two weeks. ‘

“It is deeply disappointing that after spending the last nine years defending and upholding the highest standards of CNN journalistic integrity, I will be treated this way when I leave.”

“But I do it with my head held high, knowing that I gave my heart and soul to working with the best journalists in the world.”

“With much love and gratitude,” Gollust signed her farewell message to her colleagues.

Chris Cuomo is still vying for the $18 million he claims he is owed on the remainder of his contract, which Zucker flatly refused after the termination, claiming he brought the network into disrepute.
