If you are like us, you’ve been wondering where Betty (January Jones) has been on Mad Men. Aside from her, um, large appearance on Season 5, Episode 3: "Tea Leaves," Betty has been pretty much absent from this season of the show.
However, “Fat Betty” fans can rejoice, because January Jones herself has promised that we’ll see more of Betty in the second half of the season, and she’ll be at least momentarily maintaining her new curves.
"She’s not gonna just lose weight over a period of a couple episodes," January told New York Magazine. "So, yes, she’s still heavy."
Of course, Betty’s absence from the show probably had more to do with the actress being in her final trimester during the first weeks of shooting rather than any particular plot point. Either way, we welcome the return of the complicated and sad Betty to the show. We’re getting a little tired of Megan’s wide-eyed optimism and cheerfulness. Long live the Ice Queen!
