For the record
Sumner Redstone: In the Dec. 17 Section A, an article said Viacom and CBS executive chairman Sumner Redstone allowed former girlfriend Manuela Herzer to use a penthouse apartment at the Carlyle Hotel in New York. The apartment is not the penthouse. Earlier this year Redstone gave Herzer title to the apartment as a joint tenant, but Herzer also stipulated that the apartment would be exclusively owned by Redstone until his death. The article also said Herzer replaced another former companion, Sydney Holland, on Redstone’s advance healthcare directive. The women were co-agents; when Holland was excised, Herzer was left as sole remaining agent. And the story said a Vanity Fair article celebrated Holland’s and Herzer’s status as co-girlfriends. In fact, Holland was described as a girlfriend and Herzer as a former girlfriend.
