No Condé Nast, no comment

Portfolio September front coverToday’s Financial Times picks up on two magazine stories – both from Condé Nast titles. The paper’s People column in the UK edition quotes a Portfolio story (‘Blackmail, sex and corporate secrets‘) that BP chief Lord Browne balked at revealing his sexual orientation during a discussion on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs about Così Fan Tutte, the first opera he attended, despite careful preparation.

Schwarzman, ‘who often spend $3,000 on a weekend’s worth of food’, did not invite Kravis to his 60th birthday party, which featured Rod Stewart, because Kravis failed to invite him to his flat for dinner. Poor dears.
