Think way back to the third season of Mad Men. Remember that beautiful school teacher that Don Draper had a brief affair with? Well that was Miss Suzanne Farrell, played by the wonderful and sexy Abigail Spencer who just happens to be our Babe of the Day!
One of the few problems that I have with Mad Men was the way Abigail Spencer‘s tenure on the show ended. Of course, I should have seen her departure coming because she was just another Don Draper mistress. But the set-up for their relationship was so good that I thought maybe she was going to stay. It’s probably for the best because otherwise we wouldn’t have future Babe of the Day Jessica Pare.
You may remember that Don Draper and Suzanne Farrell had planned a secret vacation together. However, the night that Don was supposed to elope, Betty confronted about his real identity. So Don had no choice but to break it off with Suzanne. Don calls her and Suzanne asks “Are you okay?” to which Don replies “Only you would ask about me right now.” That exchange encapsulates Abigail Spencer in mind because she’s always portraying very sweet and sincere characters. Sweet and sincere? Yeah, it’s sexy.
You might know Abigail Spencer from the best web-series on the internet Burning Love. She was fantastic in season 1 of Burning Love as the “Perfect One” Annie and her cameo in season 2 was probably my favorite moment of the show (other than seeing Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino talk about getting oysters at their favorite bar Nipples). Based on the preview, Abigail Spencer will be back for season 3 of Burning Love and I’m super excited. Not just because she’s a beautiful, talented actress that I don’t get to see much but season 3 of Burning Love will be a different format than a straight-forward Bachelor parody, which I’m curious to know more about.
Anyways, here she is our Babe of the Day, Abigail Spencer:
I feel bad for putting a classy lady like Abigail Spencer on blog like this, but what can you do? Am I supposed to just shout from a mountain top about how great Abigail Spencer is? No. Not when I have this blog.
Your assignment for today: rewatch season three of Mad Men, rewatch Burning Love, fall in love with this classy lady.
Abigail Spencer, congratulations on being Babe of the Day.
