"Are you alone?"
That was the rather loaded question facing Mad Men's Don Draper (Jon Hamm) as the AMC drama ended its fifth season. Would Don, who had finally given into his wife Megan's desire to be an actress by getting her a job in a shoe commercial, go back to his philandering ways?
Mad Men Finale: Chasing phantoms and being alone
"When you see the face of Don at the end of the last episode, you say, "Oh, that's where that guy's been," creator Matthew Weiner tells TVGude.com. "I recognize him."
But Weiner says that doesn't mean Don is just going to throw his marriage out the window...
Time magazine has sparked controversy with its latest cover depicting a mom breastfeeding her 3-year-old son.
Los Angeles-based stay-at-home mother Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26, was photographed with her son for the issue that tackles attachment parenting. The divisive practice, which was started by The Baby Book author Dr. Bill Sears, is focused on breastfeeding past infancy, co-sleeping and baby-wearing, which is attaching an infant to their parent via a sling.
Grumet told Time that her mother breastfed her until she was 6 and that she posed for the cover because she wants to make extended breastfeeding publicly acceptable. She said that strangers have threatened to "call social services on me or [said] that it's child molestation" when they see her nursing in public.
When Mad Men returned after the 17-month long hiatus, Betty had put on a few pounds. Well, more than a few.
January Jones was eight months pregnant during the filming of the fifth season, and so Betty became Fat Betty Francis, inspiring a Twitter meme and now, a music video, courtesy South Music & Sound Design. Check it out below:

NATALIE: Erica's inevitable demise will be the first parenting challenge for Charlotte and Cooper. "Their principal concern is Mason's psychological well-being in dealing with her [death]," Paul Adelstein says. "He said goodbye to her, but she's still alive and he knows she's still alive, so as much resolution as there was, that actually causes some problems. Then they're going to have a grieving child, and they're going to be grieving themselves, so it's a big challenge for them."
It's odd, but I missed Betty in the Mad Men premiere. When will be seeing her? — Ashley

After an interminable 17-month hiatus, AMC's Mad Men is finally back! Because it's been so long since we last visited the offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, we'll be playing catch-up with the show's most important story lines all week before the show's two-hour premiere on Sunday, March 25 at 9/8c.
Up next: Will Betty's marriage last?...
And you thought we weren't going to get any Mad Men dish before the Season 5 premiere.
So what if only some of it pertains to future episodes? You already know that they don't do spoilers. Does that mean you don't you want to know who series boss Matthew Weiner considers to be the healthiest person at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce? Not curious about the real basis for Don's diary last season? And what about Kiernan Shipka's take on whether or not little Sally is doomed with parents like hers? Isn't it just fun to hear Weiner and the cast talk about making the show?
Exactly. To further whet ...
It's been so long since Mad Men was on the air that it feels as though the show actually shot in the 1960s. We don't care to dwell on the contract negotiations that delayed it. What's important is that Don, Roger, Peggy, Pete, Joan, Betty, Lane, Sally and the rest of that impeccably groomed, highly dysfunctional crowd are back. With Season 5 premiering in a two-hour episode on March 25, TV Guide Magazine sat down with the cast — and creator Matthew Weiner — in Los Angeles to try to pry some secrets out of them and chat about why the wait was worth it.
