Sandra Lee Shops Magazine

Sandra Lee, girlfriend of Andrew Cuomo and the Food Network host whose set is so color-cordinated it makes us question her sanity, is about to start shopping her magazine, Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade. According to the New York Post, Lee is unhappy with her current publishing partner, Hoffman Media, and will announce today that the January/February issue will be the last one between them.

Lee thinks with the right publisher Semi-Homemade could compete with titles like Food Network MagazineEveryday Food, Cooking With Paula Deen and Every Day with Rachael Ray. That might be true, but Lee’s magazine has a long way to go. As of now it only has a circulation of about 300,000, while Food Network has over a million and even Paul Deen’s magazine has over 500,000 subscribers.

If Lee’s magazine doesn’t take off, there are worse things in life than being a successful TV host and author of over 20 books. She could be dating a Republican.
