Channeling My Inner Joan Holloway

Last week, I got an email from an editor at The New York Post asking if I might be interested in modeling some "Mad Men"-inspired looks for a story she was working on. Janie Bryant, the costume designer for "Mad Men," is launching her new clothing line and the editor at the Post had read…

Naturi Naughton To Be First Substantial Black Character On “Mad Men”

Naturi Naughton, who some of you might recognize from the remake of "Fame" or as Lil Kim in "Notorious," will be the first black character not in a service position (or a criminal) on "Mad Men." There are no details on what her role will be, but we're definitely going to tune in this Sunday…

Sally Draper Is Really Smart And Plays Golf

Kiernan Shipka, aka Sally Draper of "Mad Men," is apparently really, really well spoken for a 10-year-old girl. When asked whether she would act like Sally if her parents were like Betty and Don, she said: "I think Sally's actually much better than I would be, given her situation. Sally is really, really reserved. Divorce…

This “Save Sally” T-Shirt Doesn’t Exist — Yet

Oof, last night's episode of "Mad Men" was a bit of a heart-breaker, especially for sweet, rebellious, misunderstood Sally Draper. All I want is for Don to let her come live with him, or for her mom to suddenly stop being an evil word-that-rhymes-with-runt. I want to put my arm around Sally and tell her,…

Frisky Q&A: Bryan Batt, AKA Salvatore Romano On “Mad Men”

It would be easy to hate Bryan Batt. He breathes the same air as Jon Hamm, playing the closeted gay art director Salvatore Romano on "Mad Men." He counts Christina Hendricks and Jane Krakowski from "30 Rock" among his besties. And you wouldn't know it from "Mad Men," but this Louisiana native has the dreamiest…

Don Draper’s Secret Diary Entries

Don Draper -- alpha male, top ad guy and ... diary writer? We never imagined that Don Draper would do anything as sissified as keeping a journal, and yet, on last night's episode of "Mad Men," he did just that. I guess he and Angela Chase and Doogie Howser have something in common. We've unearthed…

Nobody Likes Seeing Don Draper Cry

When Don Draper has a sad, the whole world has a sad. Witness the blog devoted to Don Draper's miseries, where the lonely "Mad Men" character cries about kittens, cigarettes and Christina Hendricks' marriage to a guy that is not him. [Sad Don Draper]…

Quotable: Christina Hendricks Struggles To Find Designer Dresses That Fit

"People have been saying some nice, wonderful things about me. Yet not one designer in town will loan me a dress. They only lend out a size 0 or 2. So I'm still struggling for someone to give me a darn dress."— Christina Hendricks, a reported size 12, talks dress size and fashion with Scottish…

Peggy Olson, You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

"Mad Men"'s Peggy Olson has really transformed from shy secretary in the next cubicle to a saucy little minx! She drinks, smokes weed, hangs out with lesbians, and strips naked to get the job done -- and we love her for it. [Nerve]…

Absolute “Mad”-ness On Rolling Stone

"Mad Men"'s Jon Hamm is on the cover of Rolling Stone with three more hot women than his character deserves: January Jones in regal gold, Elisabeth Moss in body-hugging dusty rose, and Christina Hendricks in a little red, five-alarm-fire of a dress. I love how this cover is demure by Rolling Stone standards but it…

The Emmy Seating Chart

Picking who sits where for the Emmys has to be complicated. Images of the seating chart were released today and it appears that the "Mad Men" cast got the prime real estate, with Jon Hamm front and center, and Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, and then Christina Hendricks behind him in a line. We wonder what…

The Dumb Things “Mad Men” Characters Do

On Season Four of AMC’s "Mad Men," Don Draper started the season out with a bang; he slept with his secretary. And then all but pretended it never happened. For ad guys at the top of their game, the crew over at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce manages to engage in pretty dumb behavior. With the…

“Mad Men”‘s Sally Draper Rebels By Cutting Her Hair, Flicking Her Bean

Poor Sally Draper! "Mad Men"'s lisping spawn of Don and Betty is having a hard time in the aftermath of her parents' divorce and Grandpa Gene's death; she's acting out in ways that stupify her dad and piss off her mom. On last night's episode, Sally chopped off her hair (I thought she did a…

Quotable: January Jones Thinks Sexism Is Just Less “Gentlemanly” Now

"I don’t think we’ve come very far. At least they were gentlemen back then. They might say something s**ty behind your back, but at least they opened the door."-- January Jones on the sexism depicted in her show, "Mad Men," and whether men of today are really any different in Tatler magazine. Do you agree?

ZOMG, "Mad Men" has released a juicy clip from their next episode! I'll be nice and save spoilers for after the jump. But I will say it stars Joan Holloway wearing some fab blue eye shadow.

Frisky Rant: “Mad Men” Is Making Advertisers Comfortable With Sexism Again

Maybe it was because last night's episode of "Mad Men" was a little slow—my brain couldn't process that it was Christmas time—but I found myself actually paying attention to the commercials. Yes, commercials are always annoying, but last night's were particularly so. I couldn't help but be especially irked by the blatant sexism in the…
