Lingerie In Your Purse

Underwear Expert: Bras!

There’s nothing worse than meeting Person Whose Job You Want at a party and not having any way to contact them again, foiling your plans to kidnap them and slurp up their brains. An up-and-coming career lady such as yourself has got to have business cards and if your field lets you be quirky, go with it! We think these two-sided cards featuring a retro lady lingerie do the trick. Just be very, very clear your actual profession is not a lady of the night. [$56 for 100, Etsy]

 I know you were all breathlessly waiting to hear what Patricia Heaton, who played the wife on “Everybody Loves Raymond,” had to say about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke’s public comments regarding birth control coverage under health care reform. (More background here and here.) But unfortunately for you, Heaton has deleted all of her tweets about the topic. Why could that be? It seems the public did not look too kindly on Heaton’s tweets last week, which included:

“If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn’t have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce – sound good?”

And:

“G-Gal: you’ve given yer folks great gift for Mother’s/Father’s Day! Got up in front of whole world & said I’m having tons of sex – pay 4 it!”

  • Rihanna tweeted a photo of a bag of rice cakes with sunglasses and hoop earrings, which some people are saying is a racist potshot at Chris Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, who is half-Vietnamese. Considering how Rihanna was rightfully outraged when a Dutch magazine called her the n-word last year, I’m surprised she would do something like this. [PopCrush, Twitter.com/Rihanna]

Elisabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if [Don Draper and Peggy Olsen are] gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen — that to me is really interesting and rarely done well.

Jon Hamm: People want to put us in a “Sam and Diane” box, but it’s about their mutual appreciation for the work. That’s where the material strikes its resonant chord, when it’s ostensibly about one thing and then it becomes about so much more. That’s the fun thing about Don and Peggy, and that’s the deeper thing about “Mad Men.”

If you thought this was the season that Don and Peggy were finally going to get together on “Mad Men,” you were wrong (again). Which is how it should be. [NYmag.com Vulture]
