Cynthia Nixon’s first television interview since announcing her run for governor of New York aired this morning on The Wendy Williams Show. Those who still aren’t sure if Cynthia has the experience to run for governor should probably watch this interview as soon as possible. She’s seriously on top of things. Before Wendy could get out her signature, “How you doin’?” Cynthia asked, “How are you?” in a way that said, “No really Wendy, what can I, Cynthia Nixon, do for you.”
Wendy and Cynthia talked about everything. If they hadn’t run out of time, I’m sure they would have eventually gotten to Cynthia’s turn as Heather the new age nanny on Addams Family Values. Wendy brought up the fact that all three of Cynthia’s co-stars from Sex and the City have endorsed her gubernatorial run, and that she’s an O away from an EGOT. Wendy then asked why she wanted to run, and much like her campaign announcement video, she says it’s because she loves New York.
We already know Cynthia’s focus is on public schools and public transit. Well, she also wants to legalize weed and pass better gun control laws:
“I’m absolutely for the legalization of marijuana. Let’s capture some of that revenue.”
“We have good gun laws here, but we just passed a budget where we did almost nothing to amend our gun laws, and there is such an appetite for real progressive change in New York State.”
She also got a little shady while defending herself against the argument that she’s just a celebrity, by saying that her opponent Andrew Cuomo is basically just former governor Mario Cuomo’s son:

Wendy also asked Cynthia how she and her wife Christine Marinoni plan on handling being thrust into the spotlight during the campaign run. Someone needs to inform Wendy that in some pockets of the world (like Dlisted), Cynthia and her wife Christine are already huge celebrities. But let’s just play along with Wendy for a second and pretend that all this exposure will be new to them. Wendy asked how they’re going to manage being photographed “every time you and Christine make out.” To which Cynthia replied, “Hopefully not in our apartment. Are they going to be there in our apartment?” No really, is that what happens when you’re the governor of New York? Is Governor Cuomo’s partner Sandra Lee curating a semi-sexual tablescape on which to lean while sucking face with him? I guess I’ll have to wait and see if and when those pics hit Page Six.
