We’ll be back in an hour with news that all of the above has changed.

The New York Post reports that Anne Fulenwider, the Executive Editor of Marie Claire is replacing her. There has been no word on Carolyn Kremins, Brides’ Publisher yet, but she is still expected to move on from the title.
The shakeup at Brides might not be the only moves. We mentioned Lucky’s Publisher Michelle Meyers yesterday, but now there is word that tensions are mounting between Self’s Publisher Laura McEwen, and its Editor-in-Chief, Lucy Danziger.
Everyone likes a good rumor, right? Well, unless it happens to be about Kevin James releasing an album, then it would be kind of depressing. But thankfully, this isn’t about James. WWD says that there are a few rumors floating around at Condé Nast right now, especially around Brides magazine.
Apparently the buzz is that Carolyn Kremins, the Publisher of Brides, and Millie Martini Bratten, the Editor-in-Chief, are on their way out. Kremins is likely to stick around Condé — ”She’ll be incredibly strategic with her next move,” said a source — but Martini Bratten looks to be headed out of the company.
Additionally, there is a lot of talk that Michelle Myers could be ousted at Lucky.
According to Adweek, Glamour is on the lookout for someone to take the Publisher reins from Bill Wackermann. As Publishing Director for Condé Nast Wackermann’s duties have been piling up, and the company is hoping to find someone who can take over Glamour and dedicate more time to it.
Just who might fill the role? Adweek has some ideas:
If it looks inside its ranks, it might tap Carolyn Kremins, the ambitious publisher of Brides, who’s been recognized for the title’s strong performance. If Condé goes outside to fill the position, it could try to poach Nancy Berger Cardone, a Condé Nast alum with strong fashion chops who’s now publisher of Hearst’s Marie Claire (and whose hire could be a poke in the eye of the rival Hearst).
Other potential outside candidates could include Connie Anne Phillips, a Condé vet who as publisher of Time Inc.’s InStyle has made it a formidable competitor to Vogue, and Kim Kelleher, a onetime rising star at Condé who is now worldwide publisher of Time magazine.
As you can see, none of the FishbowlNY Editors were on the list, but maybe that’s because we’re almost too fabulous for the job. At least that’s what we’re going to believe.
VP/publisher of Condé Nast bridal brands Carolyn Kremins will be taking on some more responsibilities in the new year. Condé CEO Charles H. Townsend announced today that he has appointed Kremins to oversee sales and marketing for Brides.com and sixteen Brides local magazines. Both Brides.com and Brides will continue to work together under magazine editor Milli Martini Bratten and website editor Julie Raimondi.
Kremins has served as VP/publisher at Brides since 2009 after working at the same role for the now shuttered Cookie magazine. In her tenure at Brides, the title has witnessed a 27 percent growth in ad pages from 2009 to 2010. Kremins also was group publisher of The Week at Dennis Publishing since 2002 and worked with Maxim, Maxim online, Maxim fashion, and Stuff magazine.
In the past few weeks, more layoffs have come to almost every surviving Condé Nast title, and all of them (except maybe The New Yorker) will likely experience cuts before the end of the year — if not the end of the week.
Read on for a round up of layoffs at Condé Nast that we’ve heard of so far. Know of any that we missed? Drop us a note.
