And, man, has she had to! I know I’ve watched “Mad Men” over the… READ MORE »

“Well, everyone knew [Joan’s husband] had to go at some point, right? I mean, you can’t rape your wife in the office and not expect to go away. … It was the first time it was mentioned and I think it was a long time coming, for the audience in particular.

Oh, I’m swooning. Christina Hendricks from “Mad Men” shook up some cocktails with Martha Stewart this morning and she’s so lovely it should be a crime.

“I read Sex and the Single Girl and Sex and the Office before [both written by former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief, Helen Gurley Brown, in 1962 and 1965, respectively] — not before the pilot, because I didn’t know about it at that point — but after the pilot, and before we started season one.

I’ve written here before about how Joan Holloway makes me feel better about myself. With her flame hair, pale skin and curvy figure, she and I could be sisters.

Last night’s “Mad Men” had an all-too-rare subplot involving Joan and her betrothed, The Handsome Doctor . In a previous episode, Doc’s abusive, douche-tastic tendencies were barely hinted at — “Didn’t you say you were getting me a drink?!” — but this episode confirmed it for any doubters.

“I’ve always had a bit of a walk — this girl’s got hips — but on the show it’s exaggerated.
