What made Sex and the City alluring wasn't just the sex and the romance, but also the depiction of the strong female friendship between four powerful women who individually have their own successful careers.
Fans of the show could also recall how close the characters Carrie Bradshaw and Samantha Jones were. It seems that may not have been the case for the actresses who portrayed them; at least according to one of them.
Sarah Jessica Parker Speaks Up
Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Carrie, finally responded to the remarks made by her costar and former friend Kim Cattrall who played Samantha. While on the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Parker spoke on the alleged feud between the ladies and Cattrall's hurtful claim that she was never friends with her cast mates.
"I found it very upsetting because that's not the way I recall our experience. It's sad, but I always think that what ties us together was this singular experience," Parker stated. "It was a professional experience but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives, so I hope that that eclipses anything that's been recently spoken. That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with it is such a privilege."
Parker made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she jokingly stated who could replace Cattrall as the rumbustious Samantha. However, there still seems to be no hope for Sex and the City 3 movie.
Kim Cattrall's Diss
The drama began when reports of the film being made were canceled due to Cattrall's over-the-top demands. The actress defended herself, stating that she never made any demands and that she was done portraying Samantha.
Cattrall appeared on Piers Morgan Live where she further elaborated she would not be on board for another film and that she hadn't spoken to her former costars in years. Cattrall also stated that since she is older than the other ladies on the show and because she does not have children, they have nothing in common anymore.
Prior to this, there had been rumors that Cattrall and Parker did not get along while filming the show, with Cattrall particularly upset over the pay difference between her and Parker. Cattrall and Parker starred on the HBO hit sitcom for six years with Cynthia Nixon who played Miranda Hobbs, and Kristin Davis who portrayed Charlotte York-Goldenblatt.
Parker currently stars on the new show Divorce with Thomas Haden Church and Molly Shannon.
