Glenda Bailey Out at Hearst?

Adding fuel to the recent firestorm of rumors claiming that Harper's Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey is on her way out, WWD publishes an item today saying that one top editor at Hearst is on her way out. The story mentions Bailey by name: "Perhaps Harper’s Bazaar’s Glenda Bailey is on the way out? She has a new counterpart on the business side, hard-charging Carol Smith, who can’t be happy with the magazine’s current numbers and will want to turn the magazine around right off the bat." Take that with a grain of salt, a source tells WWD: “Glenda rumors come all the time, it’s just like the boy who cries wolf... For the past two years, there have been Glenda rumors.” [WWD]
