“Mad Men” returns tonight for its sixth season, and it appears that the sexy version of Betty Draper is back as well. Of course, as you can see from the first photo, it looks like she’s just as annoyed and unhappy as ever with her trademark scowl. But at least she looks good again.
Betty is easily the most unpleasant character on the show, but last year things got worse as she gained some serious weight due to a health problem. We have to give the makeup and special effects team some credit for making the beautiful, and skinny, January Jones look puffy and fat last year. I think she was pregnant during some of the shooting, but what we saw on screen definitely required some TV magic.
Now, based on the promo photo for Season 6 at the start of the gallery above, it looks like Betty has returned to her skinny and hot natural state. We’ve included some photos of Betty from previous seasons, as she became a sex symbol representing the hot mom of the late 50s and 60s with her cool dresses and classic hairstyle. We saved the classic lingerie photo for the end.
It will be interesting to see how this character develops, or perhaps even regresses. Her new marriage isn’t all peaches and cream, so Don can expect some more heartache from is pretty but abrasive ex.
Jenny McCarthy tweeted an incredible photo of when she weighed 211 pounds back in 2002 while she was pregnant. Instead of sharing that, we dug up a clip of Jenny looking hot in a bikini on My Name is Earl.
Let me get this straight. Kim Kardashian is famous for . . . just being famous. She’s attractive, but she has no discernible other than those she displayed in her sex tape. Somehow she became famous, and now she’s suing Old Navy just because they have Melissa Molinaro in an ad, and she looks like her?
Check out the claim from the lawsuit:
The case cites all the benchmarks of modern celebrity: her 8 million followers on Twitter, more than 5 million fans on Facebook and ranking as one of the most searched-for celebrities on the Internet.
Kardashian “has invested substantial time, energy, finances and entrepreneurial effort in developing her considerable professional and commercial achievements and success, as well as in developing her popularity, fame, and prominence in the public eye,” the lawsuit states.
Hmm . . . are they referring to all the “work” she did in the sex tape?
Check out the ad above. They look alike, though I think Melissa is more attractive (her ass doesn’t look huge). Oh, and Melissa Molinaro is dating Reggie Bush . . .
So no attractive brunettes who look a little like Kardashian can ever do another TV commercial because someone might confuse them with this publicity whore? Give me a break.
Everyone knows reality TV isn’t actually real, but where do we draw the line with our most prominent public figures.
Lebron James has long been known for his carefully manicured public image. He likes to be in control of what people think of him, whether it’s to sell a product or his image as a global superstar. Most of his public figure lacks substance, though, and he ends up looking more and more like a reality star and less and less like Cleveland’s long overdue messiah.
Even forgetting every public appearance or proclamation James has made the past three years has been meticulously manufactured in advance to sell us something – be it sneakers, washing machines or himself as a global icon – the past week’s narcissifest in Cleveland is impossible for me swallow as legitimate.
James never had any intention of leaving the comfort of Cleveland despite what he’s desperately tried to make public the believe.
His deliberate misrepresentation of himself in public is no different than what we’ve seen peddled by the likes of Khloe, Lamar and other reality show drones. If there’s ever a reprise of Paradise Hotel, I think we’ve got our lead.
Our friends at Celeb Parasite did not like the new look, calling it an “ugly dyke spike,” saying that now she’s “just a jobless midget who looks gender confused” and also make the funny claim that this is why NBC canceled “Heroes.” Harsh stuff, but Hayden has never impressed us with being very gracious, particularly when blowing off interview requests.
Though this isn’t actually a best-to-worst list, “Planet of the Apes” was always going to be sitting at the top. Not only has it been the subject of countless pop culture parodies (admit it, “Simpsons” geeks: you’ve been singing “I hate every ape I see / From chimpan-A to chimpanzee” since you started reading) and contains one of the greatest movie lines of all time (“Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!”), but it was a defining moment in late ’60s science fiction, leaving a legacy that even Tim Burton’s craptastic remake wasn’t able to taint…much. Everyone knows the famous State of Liberty scene where Taylor (Charlton Heston) damns the maniacs all to hell for blowing up the planet, but Earth’s real problem started with the plague that hit in 1983 (!), which killed off the majority of the planet’s dogs and cats. After a suitable period of mourning, humanity turned to monkeys and apes as pets, a regrettable decision which quickly led to simian slave labor and the inevitable uprising. At this point, things get a little sketchy, but a nuclear exchange definitely took place, and it was all downhill for humanity after that…not that apekind didn’t have its own troubles. (See “Battle for the Planet of the Apes” for details.) Good thing the mutants had the Alpha-Omega Bomb to serve as the great equalizer. Of course, their version of leveling the playing field involved leveling the entire planet, but, hey, you can’t argue with those kinds of results.
The original is soooo good, and Tim Burton’s remake is soooo bad!
