Sally Field on the Joys of Her New York Apartment

In support of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sally Field is on the cover of the May 2014 issue of Ladies’ Home Journal. With her three sons now fully grown, she’s relishing the freer rhythms of her personal life.

Field recently traded a large Malibu estate for a smaller home in LA and second apartment in New York. In the Q&A with former Parade EIC Janice Kaplan, she extols the virtues of that east coast abode:

“It’s an old prewar apartment with a view of the Empire State Building and the new World Trade Center tower, so it feels very New York to me. It just invites reinvention. I get to see all the opera and theater that I want and still it’s not enough. There’s so much to do that sometimes I just say, ‘Okay, Field, you have to stop for two nights and just read your book!’”

First On FBNY: Parade Editor Janice Kaplan Out

Screen shot 2010-02-03 at 11.23.12 AM.pngFishbowlNY has learned that Parade‘s editor-in-chief, Janice Kaplan has left the magazine.

Although a good-bye memo to staff seemed to suggest that Kaplan is leaving the weekly magazine on good terms, we have heard that she was asked to leave. The change at the top of the masthead comes after Parade‘s owner Condé Nast appointed a new CEO, Jack Haire, back in April. Since then, the magazine has lost its president, Randy Siegel, who left to run local digital strategy for parent company Advance Publications last month and got a new publisher, Brett Wilson this fall.

Kaplan, an author and former deputy editor at TV Guide magazine, joined Parade four years ago as executive editor and took over the role of editor-in-chief two years ago.

In her letter to her staff, Kaplan praised Parade‘s growth in the years since she’s been in charge, highlighting its celebrity coverage, increase medical coverage, and high profile guest writers. She also talked about the magazine’s expansion into other platforms, including TV and the Web. “Leaving now, I extend my warm thanks to everyone who contributed to our many triumphs,” she said, adding: “I’m disappointed not to have the opportunity to continue this great run. But I wish all of you — and Parade — continued success.”
