Cuomo made his comments Friday on
It was the first time Cuomo has spoken publicly since his GOP opponent, Carl Paladino, suggested in an interview Wednesday that Cuomo may have had "paramours" during his marriage to now ex-wife Kerry Kennedy.
Paladino has acknowledged fathering a child with a mistress 10 years ago.
Paladino subsequently got into a much-publicized dustup with another reporter who pressed Paladino for proof of his allegations. Paladino has since said he has no evidence that Cuomo was unfaithful.
Cuomo says Paladino's comments have hurt his family. He and Kennedy have three daughters.
