Worst of 2011: who’s the father of January Jones’s baby?
On paper it was Great for Gossip:
Beautiful actress, mystery sire, married director...
We were made for this.
But at the heart of the story: January Jones. F-cking Boring January Jones. January Jones who - ask Zach Galifianakis - is a giant bitch to begin with, which is normally a wonderful first ingredient for Good Gossip, couldn’t make me care about a story that was built for every gossip blog.
And I tried, I really, really did. On slow summer days, I would try to summon up the interest and write a post about her baby and whether or not X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who kept making photo opportunities in London with his wife Claudia Schiffer, was the baby father, wondering why he kept his distance when it came time to sell the movie but...
I didn’t even want to finish that sentence. January Jones sucks the life out of anything fun and intriguing, even a baby father drama. You know how I know this? More people will email me about her sweater in these photos than about the actual story in this article. That’s January Jones.
