Mrs. Carter: He didn’t waste any time, did he?
Anyone who watched “Mad Men” season 5 could easily see that the chemistry between Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel was very real and went well beyond acting. Kartheiser’s character of Pete Campbell was completely consumed by Bledel’s character of Beth Dawes and it lead to a passionate love affair. As much as we wanted to see Pete find love with Beth, it wasn’t meant to be as Beth’s husband entered his wife into shock treatment to help her forget Pete and become a little more docile leaving Pete alone in a loveless marriage once again.
In real life Vincent and Alexis embraced the passion between them and started quietly dating almost immediately. Now Us Weekly confirms that Kartheiser has proposed to his girlfriend and the two will be getting married (this will be a first marriage for both Vincent and Alexis). Vincent is known for living a very quiet and simple life, but when it comes to Alexis, he bares no expense. A source told the publication: “Vincent proposed a few weeks ago. She’s been wearing her ring. It’s huge.” We always expected that if Vincent got proposed or got married to Alexis (or anyone for that matter) that it he wouldn’t go overboard on the ring, but since we were wrong about that maybe he will have a big splashy wedding after all.
Kartheiser has a lot to be happy about these days. Besides his new fiancee, Vincent also has the premiere of his hit AMC series “Mad Men” season 6 airing on April 7th. Hopefully Vincent’s marriage to Alexis will go better then his fictional marriage on “Mad Men” has gone and we hope to see Pete Campbell find some sort of happiness in season 6.
