SPARTA, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Debra Nicholson, the woman who floored New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie by calling him “hot and sexy,” is putting her feelings in a letter – to Christie’s wife.

Nicholson stunned the governor with the compliment at a town hall meeting Wednesday night.

Christie recovered his composure quickly, and quipped that Nicholson should put that on paper in a letter to his wife of 25 years, Pat. He said it would help “keep [Pat] on her toes.”

Nicholson apparently followed Christie’s suggestion. She told the Daily Record of Parsippany she began the letter by writing, “Your husband asked me to do this.”

Nicholson, 55, is a married mother of three. Her remark was caught on camera and quickly went viral. She told the Daily Record she has been inundated with 86 voicemail messages.

Nicholson insists she was just making a play on words, and was referring to a Quinnipiac College poll that found Christie to be “hotter” politically than Barack Obama.

Nicholson’s husband isn’t worried. “It’s amazing how some people are taking it seriously,” Phil Marcellus told the Record.
