There have been only a couple of fleeting moments in which Betty Francis has aroused our sympathy this season, and this brief whipped-cream binge is one of them. She's just come home from an awkward run-in with her ex-husband's young, slim new wife, Megan, at the Drapers' swanky Manhattan high-rise, and she's feeling pretty self-conscious about her weight gain. So she seeks comfort in a can of Reddi-Wip – no cake or ice cream necessary. But immediately after putting tube to mouth, she remembers her diet (remember that paltry one Brussels sprout for Thanksgiving dinner?) and hacks the creamy goodness into the sink.
