Cond&eacute Nast Fires Breast-Augmented Employee

2brides2.jpgSi Newhouse may tolerate nudity in his magazines, but not in workplace, according to a Keith Kelly blind item from today regarding a former Brides employee who was recently laid off after showing two of her female colleagues the results of her breast surgery.

While the two women were “personal friends” who the employee had known for years and despite the lack of any nudity (the woman kept her sports bra on in the confines of her closed, private office), the word got around to Cond&eacute Nast‘s HR team and the woman was dismissed immediately with no severance, Kelly reports. Cond&eacute is now looking into revoking her unemployment benefits as well, he added.

Maybe this anonymous worker should have gone to work at The New York Post, which allegedly has much more lenient personnel policies.

Two Gourmet Staffers Join Former Publisher At Marie Claire

marie claire jan.jpgThe death of Cond&eacute Nast‘s award-winning Gourmet might already exist in the “things that happened last year” category, but the ghost of the beloved title still lingers in today’s stories.

Consider the announcement from Marie Claire today, which mentions that the U.S. edition of the magazine has just hired two new ad executives to work with Nancy Berger Cardone, the vice president and publisher of the Hearst mag. Both Diane DePaul and Anne Yost Carroll come from previous jobs at both Allure and Gourmet, where Cardone was formerly vice president and publisher. The new appointments bring DePaul on at the women’s magazine as associate publisher/advertising while Carroll will serve as account director. DePaul and Carroll are replacing Tami Eagle Bowling and Rachel Schauman, respectively, who are both leaving the company, today’s announcement said.

Prior to working as associate publisher at Allure, which she left in 2008 to join Gourmet, DePaul worked as associate publisher for Seventeen and advertising director for Soap Opera Digest/Soap Opera Weekly. Carroll has previously worked at Health magazine and advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi.

Cardone is not hiding her hiring favoritism, saying in a statement: “I’ve worked closely with Diane and Anne at both Gourmet and Allure, and I am thrilled to bring them on as part of the Marie Claire team. Their industry experience and energy will be essential to the continued success of the brand.”
