Sarah Jessica Parker has NOT been chosen by Anna Wintour to replace her as the new editor-in-chief of Vogue, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “false.”

According to the National Enquirer, Wintour is getting ready to retire, and is currently vetting Parker to become her successor in overseeing the fashion magazine. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “There’s a huge behind-the-scenes movement underway to get Sarah on board.” Another supposed “insider” adds, “It’s a logical choice, the only question is whether Sarah wants the radical career switch.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Parker, who exclusively tells us that the outlet’s claim about the actress being in talks to become the heir to the Vogue empire is simply “false.” In fact, the Enquirer appears to be recycling a similarly bogus story from its sister outlet, RadarOnline, which Gossip Cop busted more than two years ago for making an almost identical claim.

The webloid said at the time that Wintour had informed her staffers that Parker would soon become their new boss. Obviously, that situation never panned out, and it’s still no closer to happening. The actress and fashion icon are good friends, which is seemingly why this phony story was concocted, but the Enquirer’s claim of a job offer is completely untrue.
