Don Draper’s Relationships On “Mad Men,” From Most To Least Dysfunctional

Dating Don Draper

As a woman who loves “Mad Men,” which returns to AMC this Sunday, I’m both besotted with and disgusted by Don Draper, who somehow manages to be both tenderly flawed and nakedly brutal at the same time. Don burns through women faster than some people change socks. Some of those women try to change him (and fail). Some try to redeem him (and fail). Some try to find some spark of humanity in him to connect with (and fail disastrously). Many have amazing sex with him, but so far, none have saved him. Don and his women are often so damaged by their encounters that we thought it would be interesting to rank these relationships by how healthy they are for both players. Below, Don Draper’s sexual relationships, ranked from most to least dysfunctional. Keep reading »

“I don’t think [Jon Hamm was] wrong. It’s OK to look at something and say what it is. It’s OK to look at a McDonald’s hamburger and say, ‘Yeah, I like the taste of them, but they’re not good for me.’ We live in a time where everyone’s very aware that there’s people who are celebrities because of their fathers or celebrities because of this machine that’s selling something very simple and very ordinary, and people are buying it. It’s not an awful thing, but I think it’s OK to say it’s not a splendid thing, either.”

“You know, Sally shouldn’t be masturbating at other people’s houses or she’s going to get slapped.”

– January Jones defends Betty Draper — specifically her decision to smack tween daughter Sally after she was busted diddling herself at a neighbor’s house — in an interview with The Daily. You know, I could easily write, like, 1000 words on why this quote annoys me, especially because it pretty clearly reads like January is also speaking for herself and not just her ’60s-era housewife character, but I’ll keep it brief… Keep reading »

Is it true that the real love story on “Mad Men” is actually between Roger Sterling and Don Draper? Perhaps it is, perhaps it is. I know I’d like that to be true, and so does Elisa Kreisinger, who created this awesomely subversive take on the show. “The goal was to tell a story about  two men who once preserved concepts of manhood and masculinity but then found relief and happiness in each other, becoming a threat to the very same patriarchal system on which their power and privilege was based,” writes Elisa on her blog. “Queer Men: Don Loves Roger is a story about Don subverting rather than selling traditional masculinity.” [Pop Culture Pirate]

T-minus five days until “Mad Men” is back on-air and this will get you pumped! Video artists Elisa Kreisinger and Marc Faletti have remixed the ladies of “Mad Men” singing a kickass mashup of The Supremes song “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” You’ve probably heard the song before — but you’ve never heard it like this.

  • The cast of “Mad Men” hit “The Today Show” and of course they asked Jon Hamm about his recent remarks implying that Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are “f**king idiots,” which Kim did not appreciate. “It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than that car-crash sensibility,” said Hamm. His co-star Vincent Kartheiser then spoke up and said “I agree with everything [Hamm]. I mean, I think our society enjoys to turn on the television and seeing someone who is awful; they can say, ‘At least I’m not as terrible as that person.’” That’s just the “Mad Men” cast, spittin’ truth. [The FW]

Okay, so this dress, with just a bunch of side cut outs would have been great. Or just a bunch of weird ruffles on the bottom. Sure, I’d abide. But the combo of the two might just qualify for over-complicating what could be a very pretty garment. Either way, she’s a pretty bangin’ MILF, wouldn’t you say? And we’ll definitely be watching when “Mad Men” returns to AMC on March 25, stupid dress or no. 

Elisabeth Moss Doesn’t Have Good Things To Say About Split From Fred Armisen

“One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, ‘He’s so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.’ To me that sums it up … I don’t want to waste any more of my life talking about it.”

– “Mad Men”‘s Elisabeth Moss opens up for the first time about her short marriage to “Saturday Night Live”/”Portlandia” comedian Fred Armisen in Page Six Magazine. Oooh, burn. As for whether the two keep in touch? “Oh, god, no,” Moss said. Yikes. [Page Six]
