With Gwyneth Paltrow’s new “healthy living” cookbook set to hit stores next month, rumors swirled yesterday that the GOOP lady was in super secret, pink-swear talks with Hearst on a new cooking magazine.

“One source insisted Hearst — which has a hit on its hands with the Food Network Magazine and which helped turn Oprah Winfrey‘s celebrity buzz into O, the Oprah Magazine, now the second most profitable magazine in the entire company after Cosmopolitan, is intrigued,” wrote the NY Post yesterday.

Er, not so fast? HuffPo is reporting that a rep for the company reached out, saying that they have no plans to launch a magazine with Paltrow. Maybe they’re waiting to see how well her “My Father’s Daughter” recipe collection does first?

Speaking of which, while Paltrow’s new cooking scribe is not a vegetarian/macrobiotic affair-only (I don’t think anyone is shocked by this), there are indications that it will embrace healthy versions of traditional dishes. So, that’s a plus. Whether anyone actually decides to pay for it over their monthly taste of GOOP is anyone’s guess.
