If you saw Mad Men last week (and you should be seeing it every week), you were able to catch a rare glimpse of Don actually making Betty happy. And all he had to do was take her on a surprise, all expenses paid trip to Rome! The real surprise for us was finding out that “hitting on your own wife as if you were strangers in a Roman cafe” is a fairly douche-y move that we can get behind. But, then, Don Draper seems to be a fairly douche-y guy that we can get behind. Although, who wouldn’t hit on Betty with that coo-coo-it-must-be-Italy-in-1963 complicated up-do!
Here are some examples of the real deal:
P.S. This is what Don would sound like if he was Italian.

Marilyn’s really a Joan, not the other way around.
T minus 10 days until the season 3 premiere of Mad Men! If you haven’t been watching it, let me be the one millionth person to tell you you should be. One of our favorite things about the show: Joan Holloway . Check out the interview with Christina Hendricks in Esquire and don’t miss the photo gallery in all its curvy goodness. (The interview takes place over a meal and Hendricks actually, gasp, eats. Also, she knows what guanciale is. . . as if we needed more reasons to love this woman.)
