Lee posted photos to her Facebook page Monday showing her smiling and sitting with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the backyard of their suburban New York City home.

Lee had surgery last week. She revealed her diagnosis earlier this month on ABC's "Good Morning America."

The 48-year-old "Semi-Homemade Cooking" star said she decided to talk about her illness to encourage other women to get screened for breast cancer.

Cuomo took some personal time to be with Lee following her operation.
