Oopsie! January Jones Went to a Party and Left with Someone Else's Fiancé

By Cindy Davis | Pajiba Love | March 7, 2013 | Comments ()

Looks like Taylor Swift may soon have competition in the bad break-up song category. January Jones recently attended a pre-Oscar party and walked out with a little extra arm adornment. But let me clarify: January Jones is not a slut; nor is Liam Hemsworth, nor Emma Watson. And if Miley and Liam break up, I blame everyone equally. (Celebitchy)

Jones' "Mad Men" castmate Christina Hendricks was just signed as the lead in an adaptation of Joan Didion's A Book of Common Prayer. Hendricks will star as Charlotte Douglas, reunited with her estranged 19 year old daughter in a South American country on the verge of revolution. (Vulture)

The Shat started his own subreddit. The man is 81 mothereffin' years old and technology has nothing on him--evidenced by his recent contest win to name one of Pluto's moons. (via Twitter)

Little Oscar is supposed to be enjoying this ride, but I'm not entirely sure? (via Neatorama)

Even if, like me, you never got into the whole Dungeons and Dragons thing, you probably know someone who has--either way, this is a supercool engagement ring. You can watch the totally tissue-appropriate proposal here. (Unreality)

In other geekalicious news, read how excited Neil Gaiman was to take on classic "Doctor Who" villains, the Cybermen. The author wrote a "huge episode" for Matt Smith, who according to producer Caro Skinner, delivered a brilliant performance. (SFX)

Have a look at Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk and Bryan Cranston on the set of the final eight "Breaking Bad" episodes, *sob* bitches. Oh, we like it! (Breaking Bad)

So these promos for Justin Timberlake's upcoming SNL stint (March 9th) look about as funny as the rest of this season...which is to say, not at all. Get it the fork together, SNL. (NBC)

But the piss poor season isn't keeping the talent away--Melissa McCarthy will host again April 6th. (Hollywood Reporter)

To get along or not to get along, that is the question. Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf publicly state their answers. (Celebitchy)

Lack of work seems to have sent Cuba Gooding Jr. off the deep end. The Oscar winner has a party alter ego who goes by the name of Dick McWilly, and tells stories no one wants to hear. (Uproxx)

Do you get headaches after drinking red wine? Rejoice! The solution to your drinking woes is easy--take a pill! ("Fridays," anyone?) *Note: I am not a medical professional. I am not any kind of doctor, real or imagined. You probably shouldn't listen to anything I say. (Lifehacker)

Here's your mandatory animal video of the day, Dramatic Apple Cat. Warning: It's dramatic. (via Boing Boing):

And finally, I leave you with what may be one of the coolest roundtables you'll ever watch.
In 1988, Icelandic journalist Magnus Magnusson hosted this fascinating discussion between Steven Hawking, Arthur C. Clarke and Carl Sagan. They cover, among other things, the start of our universe, the concept of time and the feasibility of time travel. (via io9)

    Not fair! Two against one, but I can't believe the deadly calm on those apples. They never even flinched.

    So, the Cybermen went from six pack can abs and cod pieces to codless wheatbellies? Or are they pregnant? It's so hard to tell with metal exoskeletons.

    I can't wait for the final episodes of Breaking Bad to start. Just so you know, a week before they start I am avoiding Pajiba like the plague, I know what you fuckers are like with spoilers.

    I mostly blame the person (man or woman) who is in the "committed" relationship because they are the ones who made the promise to be faithful or at least upfront.
    That said, I think there should be a special place in hell for those who knowingly facillitate and participate in the cheating.

  • dizzylucy

    Except all the special places in hell are full - Taylor Swift sent everyone who has ever made a joke about her there. She got a group rate.

  • Jezzer

    The Taylor Swift Hell Groupon is now my favorite idea ever.

    Does that mean I'll be sharing eternity with Amy and Tina? YAY!

    I am proud of myself for still knowing that reference.
    I love that people here will recognise it, too.

    - seratonin
    - the above quote because I would not DARE post such a thing without checking the reference first.

  • L.O.V.E.

    If someone cheats on taylor swift that is like a double negative. That person gets a vip stairway to Heaven.

  • And you've now set in motion seven minutes of bliss in my head, cheers

  • eag46

    FRIDAY!! You linked to a clip from FRIDAY!! *big hug* I watched this show when I was too young for it and hardly anyone ever mentions it! I hope someone tells Larry David "Well pardon ME Mr. Doody!!" to his face, just to see how he reacts.

  • Jezzer

    If "slut" is apparently off the table, can we at least admit that January Jones is kind of a bitch?

  • apsutter

    She's one of those bitches that habitually goes after married/taken men. You guys know the type. The one who if she learns that a guy is spoken for is automatically intrigued and considers it a "challenge." Women like that can fuck the hell off.

  • Lyn

    Did you read the link? She was photographed GETTING INTO A CAR WITH HIM AFTER A PARTY. Sharing a ride = whoooooooore now?

    Seriously, ladies, if your man cheats on you, it's 100 percent his fault, and he'll probably do it again. It's not her fault, it's his.

  • apsutter

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply she's a whore for getting into a car with him. I'm just saying that she's been known to go after guys that are spoken for and that women who do that are the lowest kind of trash. But I 100% agree that if Liam is fucking around with randoms at parties it's completely his fault. What I don't understand is why the hell he would freakin' get engaged if he clearly wants to just enjoy being young in Hollywood. Liam seems like a super douche.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Its a lack of class and respect. Tacky.
    But the dude is a shed full of tools.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    and at the OSCARS. Where clearly NO ONE would be watching.

    Jones going full drunk cougar is kinda funny though.

    I will say, though, that as a performer, there is a different level of "playful, flirty close-talking" that's acceptable, beyond what civilians engage in. (Must be the reason those actor relationships are so stable...)

  • Hammers, spanners, trowels and troughs, what a dickhead he is, this [insert rhyme with troughs - too hungover to think]

  • Cami

    I have no love for Jones but she's single, she can do whatever she wants. He on the other hand was engaged and decided to cheat, making him the asshole.

  • Ben

    If she knew he was engaged, she's just as much of a bitch as he is an arsehole. They're both equal in douchebagery stakes as far as I'm concerned.

  • e jerry powell

    Didn't we have this discussion last week?

  • chanohack

    I disagree-- I assume that the lesser Hemsworth at some point said to Miley something along the lines of "You can trust me" or "I'll take care of you" or some other large or small vow of affection. Jones is only equally in the wrong if she's also gained Miley's trust and then betrayed it. They both suck, but cheating on a stranger is one deplorable thing-- cheating on someone you love is worse.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    From the linked article - here's Matt Damon on the sex scenes:

    As for their sex scenes together (and trust us, the movie has plenty), Damon and Douglas both say that shooting a moment of passion is always awkward, no matter who’s involved. “The scene where I’m behind him and going at him, we did that in one take,” recalls Damon, laughing. “We do it. Cut. There’s a long pause. And then you just hear Steven go, “Well… I have no notes.”

  • I love you all and wish I could comment more.

    The End.

    So say we all!

    Ah, you sweet innocent cat. Do you not realize that the apple is a foe beyond your ability to overcome? If you continue on this course there can only be tragedy for all involved. Bloodshed only begets more bloodshed.

  • Kathleen Allen

    re: january jones. well, i am NOT surprised. i've never forgiven her (character) for marrying chris o'dowd('s character) under false pretenses just to get into rhy ifans ('s character's) pants. he made her tea and she crushed his poor little irish heart. harumph!

    Matt Damon looks a lot like Ellen Degeneres in that picture:

  • Bert_McGurt

    Not to hijack the post, but I'd like to take a moment to mention the millions of fellow Canadians at home and abroad in mourning today after the loss of a national musical folk hero and icon.

    So long, Stompin' Tom. May your boot wear a hole in the great stage in the sky.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

  • kushiro -

    I remember there was a period in the early-to-mid-90s when Stompin' Tom suddenly became the trendiest thing amongst university students. It was weird because all these people who'd literally never heard of the guy (but probably knew The Hockey Song), or who would've thought he was a joke, were all talking about being huge fans. The "alternative" radio station in Toronto, The Edge (always CFNY to me, no matter how much they protest), even had ads for a Best Of album.

    I think it was one of those things that started out ironic, like "hey, check out this old dude with his board and songs about potatoes", but then people sort of missed the joke and wanted to be in on the trend. It was bewildering, because there was nothing about him that would appeal to people who normally got all excited about Jesus Jones or House of Pain or Blind Melon or whatever.

    This happened every year or so (one time it was John Denver, another Neil Diamond). It was like an early version of the Rebecca Black thing, but, y'know, with someone who was actually a tremendous songwriter and a real musician.

    Truly a great artist and, as Bert says, a genuine folk hero.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Hipsters, eh?

  • kushiro -

    It wasn't just hipster types. A lot of them were frat types and their girlfriends. People who just a few months previous would have pointed and laughed at anyone who liked someone like Stompin' Tom (or Johnny Cash, to use another example of someone who became trendy overnight around the same time).

  • Oh, no! I didn't know. Thank you. I just found this on the Globe and Mail site -

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com...

  • Bert_McGurt

    Classy to the end.

  • Mitchell Hundred

    He was a true national treasure, mainly because most of his songs were so ostentatiously nationalistic that you couldn't really get them unless you lived here. He will be missed.
