January Jones: “I’m Doing Fine On My Own”

Glamour-April13_gl_27feb13_pr_bt

Mad Men star January Jones graces the April 2013 cover of Glamour UK and opens up about consuming her placenta, and “doing fine” as a single mom to her 1-year-old son Xander.

On being a single mom: “People keep saying, ‘Oh poor you, being a single mom,’ but I don’t want to be pitied. I can do anything I want to do. I work, I date, I have friends. I have time for everything I had time for before. I just have an added amazing thing in my life. I have a great family and friends, and I know they’d be there if I needed help, but I feel like I’m doing fine on my own.”

On talking publicly about consuming her placenta: “I should never have told anyone about that. But it’s not gross or witchycrafty. Nor am I putting it in a shake or eating it raw. It’s a very civilized thing that can help women with depression or fatigue. I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I’d highly suggest it to any pregnant woman.”

On motherhood: “Being a mom is something I always wanted to do and I love it.”

    Um, fine on your own but with a team of help. Nothing wrong with having a nanny… But dont pretend you are doing it completely alone. There is no way she could trot off to Paris fashion week on her own unless she had help.

    I wish I was her :-) and have her confidence. Who need a husband anyway. They are all a pain in the ass. She has it made. She has a beautiful son, money, family and friends and help. And, she is beautiful. Good for her!,

        One should know how to read statistics… “Fatherless” homes have a very high correlation with a low socio-economic status, a low level of education, a history of traumatic experiences (divorces, at times preceded by domestic violence…), drug abuse, etc. HOWEVER, this is usually not caused by the absence of a father. If anything, it is the other way round.
        This means that if you grow up in an affluent fatherless home, with no major traumatic experiences, you’re most likely going to do as fine as everybody else.

        And certainly better than someone coming from an abusive home with a father…

      • Get the right stats

        Your stats are skewed. Poverty went with single mother households historically …and poverty has shown to be the biggest factor in those stats. A single mothers education level makes a huge difference in your statistics. Since JJ is wealthy regardless of education those statistics still don’t pertain.

    And she also helps herself to Mylie Cyrus’s man.

    There is just something so utterly dislikeable about this woman – I don’t get it!!
    She can say all the right things, but she just comes off as a complete cold hearted bitch.

    She needs to work on her presence.
