“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.
It’s been a pretty incredible year on AMC, with shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” returning for excellent seasons. Now another great AMC program will be back soon with Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” which has joined those shows as cultural icons. The devotion of each of these shows is intense, as evidenced by the ratings, the awards and the activity on Twitter. Fans love these shows as they scoop up memorabilia, visit a poster frame depot to hang their posters and then play video games in the case of “The Walking Dead.”
To build buzz for the new season, AMC recently “zombified” some famous celebrities in some gory and cool photos. If you look at the horror sites online, all you see is stuff from “The Walking Dead” so it’s safe to say there will be plenty of attention.
AMC is just one of many cable channels that have been changing television with these quality dramas. The formula is much different from network TV, as here true artists are given the creative freedom to express themselves without focus groups and studio executives dumbing everything down. HBO led the charge years ago, and fortunately many others are following this formula. Now, the quality of stories is better on cable TV as compared to most major movie releases. Enjoy!
This Valentine’s Day, Godiva transformed its new Fifth Avenue Flagship boutique in New York City into an unprecedented chocolate pop-up experience.

She was wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and Judith Ripka jewelry.
Best known as Joan from the hit AMC show “Mad Men,” the 35-year-old bombshell from Knoxville has been bouncing around television (no pun intended) for the last decade. And get this — she’s naturally a blonde, but has been dying her hair since she was 10 years old.
What is it that makes Joan [her character on 'Mad Men'] special?
Joan’s a dream to play – she’s not always prancing around the office. There’s that side to it, which is really fun, but there’s nitty-gritty. She’s what makes the workplace so fun – in a workplace that can be so dark and so much tension, Joan gives some levity. And the wonderful thing is she still has these darker moments among the fabulous highs.
