Last June, Us broke news that the twosome — Bledel played the mentally imbalanced mistress to his character, ad exec Pete Campbell — had been “dating for a few months.” Says another friend: “Vincent proposed a few weeks ago.

Will Don Draper Live or Die?

 

Long live Don Draper: Mad Men's creator has revealed he plans for Jon Hamm's character to live into his 80s

Spoiler alert: Mad Men show creator says that Don Draper will live to drink, schmooze and womanize another day. Matthew Weiner hinted that he sees the end of the series -which will run for seven seasons – potentially advancing to the end of Don’s life to see how things turned out for him.

‘I want to leave the show in a place where you have an idea of what it meant and how it’s related to you.’ If the show was brought to modern day, Draper would be 84 – that’s a lot of life to show in the next couple years (Mad Men is currently filming its fifth season, set to air next March.)

However Weiner told the Grantland.com website he doesn’t want to overstay his welcome – there will be two further series with Mad Men expected to bow out in 2014.

 

Was January Jones Drinking Before Car Wreck?

Mad Men star January Jones allegedly lost control of her car Thursday night and slammed into three parked cars, causing some major damage to the vehicles. Jones told police she was being chased by paparazzi before she crashed.

Jones also claims she fled the scene of the accident because photographers were harassing her. Turns out, however, Jones’ story about the whole incident may have a few glaring holes.

According to TMZ.com, January Jones told police paparazzi had been trailing her when she lost control of her Range Rover and struck three parked cars. She also allegedly said she left the scene for 45 minutes because the photographers wouldn’t leave her alone. Jones reportedly walked home to call 911, but later returned – allegedly wearing different clothing and chewing gum.

Witnesses at the scene, however, allegedly told TMZ.com no one saw any photographers around anywhere after the crash. In addition, at least one allegedly said they smelled alcohol on Jones before she left the scene.

Police did not administer an alcohol test on Jones after the wreck. Since she went home before police arrived on the scene, there would have been no way to verify that she didn’t drink while she was gone and any test would have been invalid.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, January Jones allegedly lost control of her Range Rover around 9 PM and hit three parked cars. There was reportedly significant damage to the vehicles involved.

January Jones initially left the scene of the accident, but returned after she says she walked home and called 911. Jones reportedly claims she fled the wreckage because she was being harassed by paparazzi photographers. The Mad Men star also allegedly told police the paparazzi were somehow involved in her losing control of her vehicle in the first place.

The LAPD does not believe alcohol or drugs were involved in the accident. Although Jones did leave the scene briefly, police will not be charging the actress for a hit and run. Jones was not arrested or cited but her car has been impounded and an investigation into the accident is currently ongoing.
