    It’s Not Easy Being a Condé NastWhat you might sometimes forget amid all the talk about anorexic assistants and Graydon Carter and Frank Gehry cafeterias and Anna Wintour is that once upon a time, long, long ago, there was a real, live man named Condé Nast. Condé was born in Paris, and he started the magazine company that bears his name. He also, as it turns out, has descendents (and they’re not the Newhouses), as an editor we know discovered when browsing Wikipedia today: Jamie Isaac Conde Nast (born August 11, 1986, in Los Angeles CA) son of Rickard Joe Conde, CEO and chairman of Conde Systems, a prominent graphic designing company, is also an heir to part of the Conde Nast Publications, Inc. (CNP) fortune. He currently lives in Bel Air (Beverly Hills) CA, and goes by the name of Jamie Isaac Conde. Jamie appeared on the cover of LA Youth, a newspaper by and about Los Angeles teens, posing for an article titled, Born Rich. He also talked about his not-so-perfect life in Gunstories, a book about teens and their experience with gun violence, written by Beth Atkin…. He is the great great grandson of Conde Montrose Nast, publisher of such magazines as Vogue (1909-1959), House & Garden (1909-1959), and other titles. Is it actually for real? The guy who found it suspects yes. Plus, would Wikipedia lie to us? Jamie Isaac Conde [Wikipedia]

    Aoki Family Feud Here’s our not-quite-automated guide to New York’s feature stories. In “Rocky’s Family Horror Show,” Logan Hill looks at “Rocky” Aoki, the Benihana entrepreneur, and his kaleidoscopic mess of a family. Keywords: Money; mistresses; Hawaii Five-O; saketini; money; insider trading; Japanese food; money. The details: Rocky Aoki, a man whose over-the-top gaudiness makes Donald Trump look like Martha Stewart, built an empire out of cheesy eateries that peddle Japanese cuisine as a knife-twirling minstrel show. Now four of his six kids are trying to wrest control of the business from him, he’s suing them, and all of it unfolds among some of the kitschiest furnishings you’ll ever see. Crucial quote: “Before his accident, Rocky boasts, he had ‘three kids from three different women at exactly the same time’ — though he only found out about the third via a paternity suit.” Takeaway: When you raise your spawn like Rocky did — encouraging greed and competition and openly picking favorites — do not be surprised when the kiddies start feuding with each other. Or even sharpening knives for you. Read the full article here — and the full issue here.
