A “Mad Men” fan with far too much time on his/her hands has used FloorPlanner.com to lay out the hallowed offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. I am glad to know the whiskey reserves are plentiful in case Topaz pantyhose pulls their business. But I spot one egregious oversight: Miss Blankenship/Megan‘s desk! [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »
“The question of Betty Draper’s motherhood is very peculiar to me. Because we were all raised by women like this. And I know it’s easy to hate her and think she seems childish and impulsive. We’re all here because of women like that. We’ll see how those kids turn out. They could end up being TV writers.”
— Matthew Weiner, “Mad Men” creator, defending Better Draper’s parenting skills. It’s unclear whether the “we” in “we’re all here because of women like that,” refers to writers, TV writers, entertainers, or, literally, everyone. I’ll speak for myself and say I am not here — as a person, a woman, a wife, or a writer — because of a woman like Betty Draper. My mother, like everyone else, isn’t without her flaws, but if she raised me the way Betty is raising her children, I think the only place I’d be right now is in serious psychotherapy. Weiner went on to say, “People must see a lot in themselves, or they wouldn’t be reacting so strongly [to Betty].

Well, it wasn’t the fairytale ending many “Mad Men” viewers hoped for. But it was a fairytale ending for one character in particular — Megan, Don Draper‘s secretary and soon-to-be … well, let’s not spoil it for those of you who might have missed the episode. Spoilers after the jump! Keep reading »
If you think you know which housewife on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is back on the dating scene, think again. Find out who it is! Read more … Keep reading »
I didn’t think it was possible to top the madness that is those bitches in New Jersey, but “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” may have done it. Last night’s premiere was seriously off-the-hook. Where do I even begin? Oh, how about with the plastic surgery disaster above with Taylor, who paid a visit to Adrienne’s husband for a little botulism. Susannah has informed me that she suspects Taylor isn’t getting the usual Botox, but Dysport, another brand of the stuff that causes those weird facial bubbles you see. Apparently it goes away after 30 minutes, which is a relief, because I am pretty sure that would be the end of Taylor and Adrienne’s friendship.
But temporary facial deformities were only the beginning of the hot mess that was “RHBH”! More, after the jump … Keep reading »
