Memo Pad: Round 'Em Up... Goofing Off... Women, Then Men...

The December issue of Maxim will introduce someone old and something new. Albert "A.J." Baime will return as an executive editor.

WOMEN, THEN MEN: Can a sales rep who spent 13 years at Interview selling ad pages to high-end fashion brands switch gears to hawk pages to Puma and Speedo? Apparently not. Victoria Fuller, who joined Women's Health in August, has left the magazine to take the same job at Men's Vogue. Fuller served as vice president/associate publisher of Interview and was fashion director at both Vanity Fair and Esquire before jumping to Women's Health, but sources close to the magazine say her luxury background was too highbrow for the Rodale monthly. At Men's Vogue, she replaces David Miller, who moved to The New Yorker as associate publisher.

SPLITTING HEIRS: While the British press went hog wild with coverage when Prince William dumped Kate Middleton last spring, they have been a little more subdued when it comes to the love trials of Prince Harry and longtime girlfriend Chelsy Davy. On Sunday, news broke in the News of the World, Sunday Mirror, and Mail on Sunday that Davy — craving her privacy and fed up with the Harry's partying antics — had dumped him, but the reporting was straightforward and lacking nasty asides. "Prince Harry has been ditched by girlfriend," the News of the World led with, saying the "pretty blonde" had also grown tired of Harry's "boozy, playboy lifestyle," and had been upset by his decision to attend the Rugby World Cup Final instead of her 22nd birthday celebrations. At the same time, the Sunday Mirror tracked the prince's subsequent alleged $4,000 booze binge in a London nightclub. Unlike the William/Kate split, where snide columns about Middleton's breeding and middle-class background appeared, the focus of venom — if any — lay with Harry's partying lifestyle and womanizing ways.
