governor cuomo's girlfriend sandra lee was rushed to the hospital last night with a painful build-up of fluid in the chest. dr. max gomez is here with more on the type of complications women may face after similar breast surgery. max. >> reporter: that's right, dick and kristine. sandra lee we know had a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction in may. what we don't know is what kind of mastectomy, skin or nipple sparing, for example what kind of reconstruction, implants or her own tissue all of which impacts the kind of complications that might arise. here's the most likely scenario. sandra lee has been very open about her breast cancer
diagnosis posting videos and tweets from the hospital after her double mastectomy and breast reconstruction but now she is suffering a complication described as a fluid build-up on her chest wall two months later. dr. cassel chief of breast surgery at lenox hill hospital said she probably had brings implants because she is too thin to use her own tissue which means probably she has an infection. >> i think the statistics place it at less than 5% and it's only a few percent of patients who will develop it but it is one of the things that patients are told that could potentially happen. >> reporter: the fluid build- up on lee's chest is easily drained but the fact that doctors want to keep her in the hospital for a few days suggests that they suspect an infection which is treatable with iv antibiotics and is a known possible complication after reconstruction. >> sometimes what they actually do is take her to the operating room, wash out the area and if possible, exchange the implant and sometimes if that is not successful or not
possible, they may have to actually remove the implant. >> reporter: the implants would have to be removed because they are foreign bodies that can harbor bacteria making an infection extremely difficult to eradicate but a high-profile complication should not prevent women from seeking breast reconstruction according to dr. cassel. >> reconstruction is an important part of a woman's body image. it is a great thing that we have to offer patients who undergo mastectomies. >> even when there is a complication like an infection, after treatment, the implants can usually be replaced and the reconstruction completed. again, we don't know whether this is what's actually happening with sandra lee but it is a known issue after reconstructive breast surgery. >> thank you. ironman is worth his weight in gold and just about every other metal. we're talking about robert downey, jr. making $80 million
this year followed by jackie chan at $50 million and vin detroitle with $47 million. also in the top five, you see bradley cooper who beats adam dollars. what's a half million. >> not much. >> gravity stars sandra bullock topped that one with $51 million. so chew on that. >> jackie chan doing well. mariah carey now has a star on the hollywood walk of fame. it was unveiled today. she was selected for the honor in 2007 but her team wanted the ceremony held after she finished her residency at ceasars palace in las vegas. carey is the best selling female recording artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold. she released her first album in 1990 and has won five grammys. >> kind of doesn't really need the star. think we already decided that. "vanity fair" announced its 2015 best dressed list
today from hollywood stars to magicians, even newcomers. cbs 2's jill nicolini has the story. >> reporter: singer-songwriter taylor swift takes the number 2 spot. >> she has an incredible sense of style, "vanity fair" describing it as prep power. she always looks amazing on the red carpet, very well put together. >> she wears it well. she can put on the sheet and it looks fabulous on her. >> reporter: another new yorker who just recently named principal dancer for the american ballet theater misty copeland. >> she has an amazing sense of style especially because she is a performer, she is in amazing shape. her style icons nicole ritchie and the ultimate new yorker sarah jessica parker. >> reporter: also on the list is rhianna. >> her style could be described as sultry swagger. she is not always necessarily -- she is an icon herself to so many young women. >> rhianna to me is more fashionable because she is like a trendsetter. a lot of things she wears you wouldn't normally see on
anyone else. >> reporter: others include sophie hunter and matt bowmer. >> can you believe george and amal didn't make the list? but amal made the list no surprise. she in particular is a style icon and loves british designers. prince william and kate didn't make the list as a couple which is surprising because she looks amazing. together they still look amazing. it's surprising that prince harry landed on the list because when i think of him, he always looks more disheveled. >> reporter: hollywood actresses emma stone, emma watson and charlize theron made the list. jill nicolini, cbs 2 news. >> they all look good. >> amazing. all look amazing. >> amazing! absolutely. [ laughter ] >> i agree with a lot of those choices, though. >> george clooney? they look good together that's for sure. [ laughter ] >> time for your forecast. lonnie always looks amazing. amazing. >> dickie boy, thank you. listen, we're looking amazing outside with those skies and that makes me feel good about things. hopefully you do, as well. temperature readings now new york city and central park
coming in at 84 degrees. i have a little warmer south of the city. i have an 89 right now from walter in bradley beach and walter is saying, how low can the humidity go? right you are. it felt so nice out there today. we called it the pick of the week because humidity was going to be low nice temperatures and that's what you got. there's your picture now. seeing a shadow cast over central park. sort of like a dark underbelly after cloud above but it's still partly sunny officially. it's 84 degrees, no rain in new york city. there's a slight shower for a couple of folks out there but not a big threat. in terms of the headlines, i have mostly good news. i'm still watching the storm off to the west but now it's heading towards delaware. i think we'll get clipped by it but we don't take the full brunt of this system and the brunt of the system now is around -- the transition you're going from arkansas into tennessee that little yellow band there. severe thunderstorms. we are going to watch this and the computer models are watching it, as well. here's how they see it progressing.
early friday morning, i'm saying we are going to get clipped by it but most is south of the area. that's about the center off delaware. and yeah, ocean county, monmouth county, a little bit of rain maybe early friday morning throughout the day could see a few breaks further north. all i'm same most of this is -- all i'm saying is most of this is somebody else's storm, not ours. the weekend it breaks up into two pieces and it starts to curve up the easter seaboard. it's better for the mountains than the beaches. it's not terrible. saturday more cloud cover. so i'm going to go with a temperature of lower 80s at the beaches on saturday. but you will see more clouds out there. on sunday mostly sunny 80 to 83. for the mountains again i think your forecast is nicer. you're further north from where that system is. 83 tonight at 7 p.m. feeling like 82. 77 at 10 p.m. there's no feels-like
temperature because the humidity is low. 8 a.m. sunshine and 70 degrees. it feels like 70. so that's nice. if you look at the extended forecast, high temperature will get up to 38 on thursday. more clouds later in the day so you start off with the bright sunshine and the clouds come into the area late. friday i'm still going to keep the spillover cloud cover in the area slight chance for rain. better bet for rain would be south of the area but again the bulk of the rain is going to somebody else's state not ours. >> good for us. a year off work without a pay cut? how netflix is breaking new ground with parents and has nothing to do with tv. >> at 6:00 crowds of homeless smoking synthetic marijuana on the streets of the city. and there's not much police
