Memo Pad: No Words... Short Stint... Rewriting History...

The third issue of Portfolio will arrive on newsstands later this week with one thing missing...

TO THE RESCUE: The well-coiffed Denis Leary criticizes everyone and everything as the star of the FX drama series "Rescue Me," but he might get some of his own back after the October issue of GQ hits newsstands. The sharp-tongued comedian, along with actors Michael Lombardi and Steven Pasquale, appears in a special section inside the magazine for Matrix Men that tells readers how men can save themselves from bad hair days. These, a GQ spokesman offered without a hint of irony, can be "just as tough as a bad day in the firehouse." Alongside a perfectly coiffed photo of Leary, the ad reads: "Now, wrapping up the season and preparing for fall, they've called on Matrix Men celebrity stylist Diana Schmidtke to rescue their hairstyles from hours under firefighters' helmets." One can only hope that it isn't too late. — Amy Wicks

ANOTHER COMPETITOR FOR THOSE LUXURY AD DOLLARS: ForbesLife Executive Woman, a new lifestyle magazine that arrived in homes on Saturday (polybagged with Forbes), was created for the female hedge fund manager, high-powered lawyer or senior-level executive who is looking for a "different kind of luxury lifestyle magazine," said editor in chief Catherine Sabino. For its first issue, 125,000 copies were sent out, and next year, it will publish quarterly. "It's about a success level, not an age range," she added. The cover features Mary Callahan Erdoes, the chief executive officer of J.P. Morgan Private Bank, and inside, there are pieces on Thia Breen, the president of Estée Lauder Worldwide, as well as a look at the challenges of making partner, and also having a life, inside Goldman Sachs. On the ad side, a spokeswoman said Paul Stuart and Brioni, which formerly only placed ads aimed at men in ForbesLife, have placed ads targeted at women in the first issue. — A.W.

GIVING BACK: Seventeen vice president-publisher Jayne Jamison went public with news of her battle against breast cancer in last year's Vows column of The New York Times. Since then, Jamison has gone into remission, and joined the cancer organization Look Good...Feel Better, which provides seminars on makeup and appearance so women can look their best. Next month, her magazine will give back to the cause — Seventeen will include a makeover of a mother with breast cancer and her daughter done by makeup artist Sonia Kashuk, who is also a breast cancer survivor. Today, the magazine will launch breast cancer charity e-cards at The cards will carry different messages, from the importance of self-breast examinations to remembering loved ones affected by the disease. Seventeen will make a donation to Look Good...Feel Better for each card sent. Meanwhile, Jamison talks about her cancer treatment, her wedding and working with Look Good...Feel Better in a blog on the group's Web site. — S.D.S.
