When Sarah Jessica Parker recently mourned the world’s lack of a third Sex and the City movie, many couldn’t help but wonder if she was singling out one person in particular for holding up the endeavor. And let’s face it, after the critical and commercial failure of Sex and the City 2, another sequel was bound to be an improvement.
“We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story,” she told Extra. “It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
Considering there had been rumors swirling around that Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha, was holding up production with “outrageous demands,” this seemed a bit like Parker throwing her frenemy under the bus. After all, she could have said that Cattrall didn’t hold up the series — or not talked about the movie like it was a cute puppy that Cattrall had heartlessly murdered in front of the entire nation.
“At this very moment it’s quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I’ve been saying for almost a year of ‘no’ that I’m demanding or a diva,” Cattrall told Piers Morgan on his show Life Stories. “And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, in that I think she could have been nicer.”
“She could have been nicer” is this year’s “I hope that raging bitch burns in hell.”
She continued: “This isn’t about more money, this is not about more scenes, it’s not about any of those things,” she continued. “This is about a clear decision, an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another. I’m 61. It’s now.”
Cattrall’s remarks seemingly confirmed that there really had been a years-long feud between Cattrall and Parker, even though Parker denied it in 2016. Perhaps Parker just forgot about the feud due to brain damage she may have suffered from wearing all those fifty pound hats as Carrie Bradshaw.
