Omid & Bita Kordestani

A billion for you, a billion for me

ValleyWag (San Francisco Bay Area): Affairs of the heart are never easy for outsiders to understand. But when they stray into the office, they, alas, become everyone's business. Which is why we asked, a while back, which Googler had put his marriage at risk over an affair with a coworker. As commenter notelling correctly guessed after we ran a blind item, it's Omid Kordestani, Google's top sales executive. Kordestani's no mere sales guy, however. For one, he's worth $2.2 billion, thanks to his Google shares. And inside the Googleplex, he's referred to as the company's "business founder," responsible for the fabulously successful money machine that is AdWords. With his stunningly beautiful and intelligent wife, Bita, shown above to the left, Kordestani might seem to have it all. But all was not enough. Gisel HiscockKordestani's new love, as is widely known within Google, is Gisel Hiscock, a New York-based finance director for the company>>>

I have heard many great things about Omid from business students at Stanford. It's funny how everybody makes mistakes but there are always people who love to bash on others. It's the sick sense people have to make themselves feel better by berating others. Whether it be to name call or drop bombs. Only Omid and Bita know what went on in their own personal lives, and at some point in their lives there was love. If the love is gone to the point where they actually wish demise on one another, then there the love was not real and they are better off in their separate ways; anyways, it's not our place to judge either one of them and the pathetic thing is that the Iranians are the ones that go out of their way to bash their own people. Get rid of the jealousy, judgements, and the hate.

Let him [without sin] first cast a stone ... DO NOT JUDGE!!!

by FARNAZ JAFARI (not verified) on

Please stay away from his personal life!!!!!!
This is no ones business!!!

Jesus said:
"Do not judge so that you will not be judged. "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. "Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? "Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye? "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. (Matthew 7:1-5)

Omid Kordestani we all love you and your lovely family always...

We, Iranain, should be proud of Omid Kordestani.

Omid Kordestani, Long live omid!

by Anonymous on

As Frank Sinatra song goes:

And now the end is near
So I face the final curtain
My friend I'll make it clear
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much much more than this
I did it my way

Yes there were times I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all
And I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now as fears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may i say not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
Not to say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
Let the record shows I took all the blows
And did it my way

Yes it was my way

GPA=4 actual brain=0

by my opinion (not verified) on

I think it is dobble terrible if someone is smart enought to hold a gpa = 4.0 but does not have the the self decipline to stay faithful to his wife compare to some one who is really dumb did not go to any school and has no money but is spritually well balanced to act responsiblly in the society.

I am in no way saying he should stay in a bad/loveless marriage but he can divorce his wife and then start looking around. I would go with a bald/fat/uneducated/broke/totally unattractive guy who has love and dedication to offer me.

Hey Bita as they say "Don't get even... Get Everything! :D

Omid Kordestani

by Mori (not verified) on

Once in a while a flower grows among us and we do not see it, we do not smell it and we do not appreciate it until it fades away and then we all talk about it and celebrate its death not its birth, a culture of the past not present!

I went to school with Omid at San jose State university and I have not seen him since 1986.

Omid was an amazing student, 4.0 GPA all the way, he was teaching at the school of engineering while he was going to school, a roll model, an absolute gentleman, positive, always big smile, always positive, bigger than life and set the bar high and higher, no limit.

I learned a lot from him as a young student, he is truly one of a kind and most important he is
ONE OF US.

We all make decisions that we may or may not regret, it is part of life, accept it, we need to accept change, it is the life. People change and grow apart, it is healthy and no one should judge it but time will tell whether it was right or wrong.

Be proud of our countryman and look at their positives than negatives,lets be good citizens of this earth and smell the flowers NOW!

A QUESTION (for "HAMDARD" & "Kouroush"):

by Sousan (not verified) on

The narrow-minded contents of your comments implies that you must be very YOUNG or I should better say RAW!
Imagine yourself, god forbid having a daughter somewhere down the line:
How would you feel about someone who would judge your precious daughter based on the size of her nose, the amount of her body hair or the size of her chest???
Wouldn't be an unfortunate trajedy if men with your mindset ever get to be the father of an innocent child?
Do you even care that an Iranian mother with low self-esteem would highly be nurturing a self conscious daugther who will in turn, lack the confidence needed to be a high achiever?!
Going ahead with this attitude, you will probably crush any ounce of confidence left in the females around you...
But please, for the sake of our children's well being, let's see deeper than the skin & value "SIRAT_E_ZIBA" over "SORAT_E_ZIBA"!

Somebody tell HAMDARD & other men like him, that
only nice "NOTHING" doesn't excite women!!!
Oh... Bita, the lucky gal, you are FREE at last!
Damn with the split! You apparently have two legs, borrow another pair & just RUN!!! Barefoot, through snow, through fire: JUST RUN!!! And make no more mistake!
I mean for the rest of your life.

that's enough

by doost (not verified) on

ey baba, basteh digeh....this is really getting nasty. Please have some respect for persian women and men! We all have families, father, mother, sons and daughters! what's going on here? Lets respect each other, why are we talking about hairy women and bald men? this is so sad. We are all intelligent individuals, can we stop this? This couple is trying to work on their marriage, they are not divorced or separated. Most of the things you guys are reading is just gossip and not much truth to it. We all have problems in our lives and specially in our relationships, lets not involve others in it, and say nasty things. I don't know Omid much, I'm sure he is a wonderful man, and he made a mistake, but I worked with Bita on couple of Fundraising, she is such a true caring lady! We all have ups and downs in our marriages, I hope things workout for them, and if not, good luck with their decisions. please respect and support our hamvatans.

HAMDARD, I couldn't help noticing your grudge against women who use "Vanishing Creme".

Don't be quick to judge

by Persian Woman (not verified) on

For all of you gossip mongers, please do not be quick to judge Omid or his wife Bita. Everyone has issues in their marriages, families, and lives. It is NOT up to you to judge a relationship especially when you don't know the parties involved. You can make your cutrageous speculations of white vs dark chocolate, cravings, sexual desires, until you are blue in the face.
Please spend your time discussing issues that really impact our world and humanity (i.e., they are children that sleep at night with hunger burning in their stomachs, villages that don't have adequate water supplies, innocent people dying around the world, etc.) and you expend your energy judging two people know don't even KNOW.

TO "KOUNROUSH" SASSANIAN & all Iranian men who think like him:

by VOROJAK (not verified) on

RESAD ADAMI BE JAEE KE BEJOZ KHODA NABINAD :)

RESAD "KOUNROUSH" BE JAEE KE BEJOZ KOSE "sefed va bolouree" NABINAD :(

"sefed va bolouree" ONES ARE GIVING THEMSELVES CANCER WHILE TRYING TO COOK THEIR SKIN IN THE SUN SO THEY COULD LOOK JUST A BIT LIKE THE GOLDEN PERSIAN WOMEN!!!
AND IF YOU "MAKE LOVE" INSTEAD OF HAVING "SEX", YOU'LL SEE "ABREESHAM" INSTEAD OF "HAIR"!
FOR YOUR INFO, "HAIR" IS A "SEXY" ATTRIBUTE! YOU DIDN'T REALLY THINK "BALD IS BEAUTIFUL", DID YOU!!??
YOU SEE, IT'S ALL HOW YOU LOOK AT IT.. YOU WILL ALWAYS SEE WHAT YOU "WANT" TO SEE!!!

I WILL NOT EVEN TRY TO JUDGE BITA NOR OMID SINCE I DON'T EVEN KNOW THEM. BUT IN GENERAL, WHY DO YOU EVEN MARRY PERSIAN WOMEN IN THE FIRST PLACE, IF THEY'RE SOOOO BAD???!!!
WHAT'S WRONG?? ARE YOU BLIND BEFORE YOU GET BLESSED WITH THE MIRACLE TOUCH OF YOUR FIRST PERSIAN PARTNER?? AND THEN YOU REALIZE YOU WANT "WHITE CHOCOLATE" INSTEAD OF "DARK CHOCOLATE"?!
OR DID ANYBODY FORCE YOU TO MARRY OR STAY IN A MARRIAGE WITH THE PERSIAN WOMEN???
PLLLLLEASE, FREE YOURSELVES ANY SECOND YOU LIKE & SAVE OUR BREATH! YOU CAN DEFINATELY BE AS LUCKY AS OMID IF YOU WISH SO, HELP YOURSELF!
AND EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GOOD FOR YOU, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STICK WITH YOUR "DARK CHOCOLATE" IF YOU DON'T WANT TO!
BE OUR GUEST, GO AHEAD & GOBBLE ALL THE "WHITE CHOCOLATE" YOU WISH UNTIL YOU TURN WHITE YOURSELVES!!!!!!!!!

BECAUSE WE IRANIAN WOMEN CAN FEED THE IRANIAN MEN'S "HUNGER", BUT HOW CAN WE CURE THEIR ERRATIC "CRAVINGS"!!!!?????????

well said

by well said (not verified) on

I agree with Shame! We as Iranians haven't learned to be happy for others when they rise and sad for their falls! Why are we so ruthless!? These emails are so dissappointing, and shocking. its such a shame for me to say I'm Iranian! The only thing I want to say to all of you is I hope you find your happiness else where, not here with trashing this couple. As the other guy said, no matter what you all say about him or her, they are accomplished, successful and respectful people. They complement each other in many ways. How many people do you know to be as generous as Bita has been for the past few years? Lots of people have money, millions and billions, but don't give a damn to help anyone. Lets look at them in a different light, and take our nose out of their lives and end this. Thank you.

Omid Koredestani The Great,

by he_changed_the_world (not verified) on

We, Iranain, should we be proud of Omid Kordestani.
He changed the world , he leads the world, he accomplished a lot, he made life much easier for the entire world, bring his name with respect,
Only small men and small women will misjudge him.
I am certain, he chose a great wife, someone at his level, since Omid was being Omid. Respect him and his family, as they are the reason to be proud of being Iranian.
I wish Omid and his wife, a long life, at least
1000 years more and everyday wake up with a smile on their faces.

what a shame

by shame (not verified) on

It's a shame to see these messages! All of you really need to get a life, and worry about your own well beings! You all have resentments and angers, it's none of our business what they did or doing! Negative energy will go around and will hurt all of you. Please move on and stop this shameful comments. Nothing will happen or change with what you're saying. Nobody can ruin anybody's life if they don't want to. If you all had bad relationships or marriages is because you let it get there,you allowed it, and it happened because you didn't take care of it, no one can hurt anyone without your willingness!These are all private issues, the world will look at Omid as a great achiever, and will look at Bita as some one who is making a difference and was behind omid's career and successes for 15 years. She is out there and doing something, what have you done lately? she worked hard with this life and marriage and they both deserve a good life, either with or without each other. I work with both of them, Amazing human beings! No matter what you guys say and how you waste your time with these comments, there are people who believe in them, respect them, and love them. So go and heal yourself and your life. Nobody gets any where with bad mouthing others.
Blessings to you all!
