Brides EIC Out After 25 Years

One of those rumors we mentioned yesterday turned out to be true (no, not the Kevin James one). Millie Martini Bratten, the Editor-in-Chief of Brides magazine since 1986, has been fired.

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.

Rumor Mill Cranks at Condé

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.

Rosie On Trump @ Matrix: ‘My Goal … To Give A Bald Billionaire A Boner’

During a break in the pre-Matrix action yesterday, we poked our heads into the Waldorf Astoria ballroom where recipients of the New York Women in Communications Foundation Scholarship winners were lined up in ready to rehearse their introduction to the A-list crowd. In a clever departure from years past, when the anonymous group would silently enter and exit en masse, the aspiring media mavens each walked up to the microphone this year, introducing themselves and proclaiming themselves to be “the next [insert female media maven here]” When their turn in the spotlight came, the crowd had varying reactions to their proclaimed role models. No less than three of the young women expressed a desire to helm Cosmopolitan (the one who exclaimed she was “the next Kate White” drew the loudest round of applause), the one intrepid soul who dared admit she wanted to be “the next Bonnie Fuller” got a less than enthusiastic reaction while another hopeful who said she fancied herself Atoosa Rubenstein‘s Eve Harrington rendered the crowd all but silent.
