Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” was a rough one. Rough because it was the last one of the season — but the show has been picked up for season three — and rough because I didn’t think my heart could break any more for Betty Draper. The dichotomy between her life and Peggy’s was glaring — Betty has found out she’s pregnant and despite hinting to her doctor and to her friend that she “cannot have a baby right now”, she does not have the right to choose. Her doctor says she is a woman of means; her friend seems deaf to Betty’s hint that she wants to end her pregnancy. And so, in the end, she screwed a guy in a bar powder room and then took Don back.
Umm, axed Danity Kane member, Aubrey O’Day, and Kanye West may or may not have made at out at a club. Really Kanye? [DListed]

Um, what is Bono (who is married) doing canoodling with a bunch of bikinied 19-year-olds? [Perez Hilton]
I am a staunch defender of Uggs — during frigid winter temperatures, when I have to run my dog out at midnight for a walk, nothing is better than those squishy, fur-lined boots. And I even saw them in a cool grey color this weekend! But, my mind, there is no greater fashion mistake than a pair of Crocs…well, until now. Behold, Croc winter boots! I’d sooner walk barefoot over molten lava. [SportsAuthority.com] Keep reading »
“Every 13-year-old girl in the entire country has read this ["Twilight"], and you can almost guarantee wherever you go you’ll hear, ‘Oh my god! It’s Edward Cullen.’ …I’m sort of signed on for another two, but it’s all dependent on what happens at the box office.” — Robert Pattinson to VarietyKeep reading »
Last night, my boyfriend, I mean, Jon Hamm (Don Draper on “Mad Men”) hosted “Saturday Night Live” — he was actually very, very funny! He IS perfect. Sigh.

#8 — Our Pick: Sarah Haskins AskMen’s Pick: Rob Kay
We had to make a bit of a leap with this pick, as Rob Kay is the dude who created the video game Rock Band and I could not, for the life of me, think of any female video game influencers because, duh, we, in general, don’t play video games. But we do like VIDEOS! One of our favorite web video stars is Sarah Haskins, who has her own show, “Target Women”, on Current. Every few weeks she tackles a new topic facing women with her hysterical, dead-pan, feminist perspective. Whether she’s talking about women and pooping or women and Sarah Palin, she always hits the nail on the head. Yes, we have a girl crush. And just because we have a lot of girl crushes, doesn’t mean the one we have on her isn’t extra special. Keep reading »
We’ve seen some cuh-razy footwear on the red carpet lately — some cool, some hideous, all totally painful to wear. After the jump, eight pairs that would make our dogs bark. The pain would just be worth it for some. Keep reading »
On last night’s “Weekend Update Thursday” — “Saturday Night Live”‘s special election coverage — Will Ferrell showed up to do a skit as George W. Bush, with Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. It was gosh darn hysterical and definitely a teaser for the material Ferrell is going to do in his upcoming comedy show, “You’re Welcome America — A Final Night With George W. Bush”, coming to Broadway in February 2009. One quibble about the skit — Tina’s new bangs are all wrong. [Variety] Keep reading »
