Sarah Jessica Parker: Kim Cattrall ‘said things that were really hurtful about me’

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Hartvig Nissen School

I apologize to People Magazine for calling their Sarah Jessica Parker cover story this week “gossip-journalism malpractice.” I said that because in the first cover story excerpt they put online, there was zero reference to Kim Cattrall. I couldn’t believe that they sat there and did an entire interview with SJP and never once asked her anything about Cattrall and this incredible feud. As it turns out, they did ask SJP and they just published the Cattrall part later. Here’s what SJP had to say:

In this week’s cover story, Sarah Jessica Parker opens up to PEOPLE’s Editor in Chief Jess Cagle about a range of topics: current projects including HBO’s Divorce and her new kids’ line for The Gap, as well as marriage, motherhood and four decades of fame. She also addresses the controversy over Sex and the City Last year after the plug was pulled on a third film, Kim Cattrall told Piers Morgan that she felt she’d had a “toxic relationship” with Parker and her costars. But Parker says there is no feud.

“I never talked about it, except [to say] that some of us were disappointed [about the movie not happening],” Parker says in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “But I never responded to the conversation Kim had with Piers Morgan, where she said things that were really hurtful about me. We had this experience and it was amazing, and nothing will ever be like it. We had a connection with an audience, and we had a connection with the city and with this crew, and we got to tell these crazy stories with each other. So I don’t want to mess with that. I couldn’t imagine anyone else playing that part. So there was no fight; it was completely fabricated, because I actually never responded. And I won’t, because she needed to say what she needed to say, and that is her privilege.”

[From People]

The only credit I’ll give SJP is for finally speaking about this openly, as opposed to pushing bitchy, anonymous-sourced pieces to the tabloids about how Cattrall is a money-hungry diva. The first point I’d like to make is regarding SJP’s take that Cattrall’s Piers Morgan interview was “really hurtful.” Go back and read the quotes from Cattrall’s interview. She said Sarah Jessica “could have been nicer” about everything, but mostly Kim is reacting to the incredibly nasty Daily Mail article that came out just days beforehand, which had SJP’s fingerprints all over it. After Kim did the Piers Morgan interview, there was another mountain of negative sh-t in People Magazine, Us Weekly and the Daily Mail, all about how Kim is a deranged, delusional a–hole and poor, poor Sarah Jessica. THAT was Sarah Jessica’s response, even though she’s now trying to say “I never responded.” Nevermind the fact that Sarah Jessica has been making oblique and shady references ever since in interviews.

As for the central argument she makes: “So there was no fight; it was completely fabricated, because I actually never responded. And I won’t, because she needed to say what she needed to say, and that is her privilege.” This is SJP’s fake nice-girl persona. The fight wasn’t “completely fabricated.” That version is bullsh-t. Kim burned it down with that IG. And yes, Kim will say whatever she wants to say because she’s completely done and that’s ALWAYS been her privilege: to say no to more SATC, to say no to ever working with SJP again.

    She’s got some nerve! Imagine saying “I never said anything!” after months of making the rounds saying things. SJP is just gonna keep digging that hole I guess.

  2. Runcmc says:

    Wow. Before this SJP just seemed a little cutthroat but I kind of admired that – going out and making your own opportunities is admirable. But now she looks like a cold-hearted, selfish, conniving b***. That she can say those “poor me, I’m an innocent lamb” words knowing what Kim is going through and WORSE that she thinks were all stupid enough to believe her? Wow. Cancelled.

  3. Seraphina says:

    I give Kim a lot of credit for putting on her smile and making it all seem good while all the time going through hell. Working in a toxic environment is not fun nor good – having been there myself with a crazy boss. We all draw our own conclusions as to who is the villain and I thinks it’s SJP.

  4. Snappyfish says:

    I’m sick of seeing her face here. I have never believed her wide eyed who me routine. I do firmly believe that she is manipulative & vindictive. I never liked Carrie or the fact that she has a scream she works into every role. It’s much like trying to find a Tom Cruise movie in which he doesn’t run (heads up, there aren’t any) Cattrall is going through a nightmare & this woman is making everything about her. No one really wants to see a third SATC movie except for the possible answer to the question “how bad will it be?’ The only person disappointed is SJP

  5. OriginalLala says:

    she really needs to stop, she’s looking like such an A-hole doing this while Kim is grieving her brother.

  6. Mrs. G says:

    Wow I’m so done with SJP a truly horrible person

  7. Digital Unicorn says:

    Complete damage control by SJP, she realises that she looks bad and is trying the ‘poor little victim’ schtick with childish justifications that ‘she said mean things about me’ – someone needs to tell SJP that she’s not in the kindergarten playground anymore. The more she harps on about it while Kim stays silent the more desperate and b!tchy she sounds, esp given the Cattrall family circumstances.

    Plus it just proves she refuses to admit the NO ONE wants a 3rd SATC movie.

  8. Juliette says:

    I can’t stand SJP. Really a false and bad person

  9. minx says:

    The more she talks the worse she comes off.

  10. Luca76 says:

    And poor Kim’s brother just died but SJP is the victim. Ugh Hollywood narcissism on full display.

  11. Nicole says:

    She does know that we don’t buy this persona anymore right?

  12. RBC says:

    Kim should be left alone to grieve the death of her brother. She lashed out in response to SJP and her behaviour. She wants to put SJP and that part of her life behind her.
    SJP (or Andy Cohen)might want to read the comments on sites like this and drop their attacks on Kim. Both of them are very close to saying something that will cause a backlash against them. Disgusting people

    • Neelyo says:

      I don’t really visit any other sites, has the reaction to this been like it is here? I’m just curious if other people are buying the manure she’s selling.

      • sunnydeereynolds says:

        Just here. Almost every comment section from different articles are pro SJP and that KC is a bitch.

      • Tania says:

        They tried here, but we’re all too smart. There’s like a core group of hired people out to defend her actions.

      • SlightlyAnonny says:

        @sunnydeereynolds. “Every comment section?” Jezebel seemed pro-Kim and their pop culture podcast Dirtcast was defintely pro-Kim. And every comment section thinks a woman grieving her brother is a B? Wow. Laineygossip is also, pro-Kim.

      • MissMarierose says:

        I haven’t really seen a site that’s pro-SJP. Most commenters are either pro-Kim or in the neutral “they both need to just stop” camp.

        But …. each site I’ve looked at has ONE commenter that is very pro-SJP and responds multiple times to a lot of pro-Kim commenters. Hmmmm…..

      • minx says:

        It’s been ages since I’ve read any site other than CB because I can’t stand stupid people. But it’s good to hear that people are seeing SJP for who she is.

      • magnoliarose says:

        CB is my main squeeze, but sometimes if a story is big and the little roses are asleep, I will peek elsewhere just to see how others are responding or if someone says I should look at something. This was one of those times, and I have yet to see many pro-SJPs except for her paid staff. Some were more neutral initially but the longer she talks the neutrality has waned.

      • Shambles says:

        MissMarieRose,

        That’s been happing here, too. One or two commenters with vague/ambiguous screen names that I’ve never seen around before stanning hard for SJP, all with the same lines. It’s creepy when you notice it. Same thing happened with Johnny Depp, just on a larger scale. These people will do anything to sway public opinion, and I guess the Russians noticed their strategy. Lol but not lol at all.

        ETA: abundant evidence can be found in the comments below. Not saying every pro-SJP poster is a paid plant, but damn. It’s literally the same lines, day after day. Logic is futile.

      • @Shambles

        I saw them on reddit, too. Same ‘if SJP hadn’t given condolences, Cattrall would’ve flipped out about that, too’ line, while everyone else in the thread broke it down sensibly… i.e., SJP made her condolences public, when they could’ve been private/she was a producer on the show, and Kim’s boss/she could’ve had her publicist tell the media not to ask her about Kim/SJP’s an ass.

        One of the pro-SJP monikers wasn’t even a proper name… just a line of random numbers. Which isn’t very typical of redditors, who tend to choose delightfully imaginative screen names.

  13. Neelyo says:

    It’s like she’s patting herself on the back for allegedly taking the high road.

  14. gingersnaps says:

    Can’t she just keep quiet? I don’t think Kim and her family has buried her brother yet but it’s all poor me, woe is me for sjp. I just can’t stand this poor excuse of a woman.

    • kNY says:

      That was exactly what I thought – she can’t just shut up? They just found Kim’s missing brother DEAD. She offered her condolences, Kim exploded, and then SJP got two magazine covers that were totally on her side. And yet she still has to freaking push her story. I really hate her now. I was so not of ANY opinion before – I thought they were both petty but really didn’t care. Now…nope. She is a monster.

    • noway says:

      This interview was done before Kim’s brother died, and originally it didn’t have anything about the feud then probably cause it is gossip gold and looked really odd they, most likely People, added it back in. Remember people were screaming yesterday it wasn’t there. I think there is only one People cover so not two magazine covers. SJP has not responded personally about Kim since her instagram post, so hopefully SJP did get the message. I wouldn’t go with monster just petty and greedy. Obviously, SJP thinks a SATC movie will make her a lot of money, not sure why she thinks that but maybe her deal was really good. My wish was that after Kim’s original classy remarks many moons ago about why she didn’t want to do a third SATC movie SJP would have just let it be. Not sure what she thought she would gain from this feud cause I didn’t dislike her before, but now she seems really petty and tone deaf. Always loved Kim since that stupid Mannequin movie in the 80′s. That was a junk food fun movie.

  15. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    This is just not SJP’s week.

    The more she talks about this the worse she is coming off in my eyes. She really is delusional and petty. So if Kim is not being overly effusive with her praise of Sarah, she is being mean and offensive. What is she four?

  16. Rinny says:

    Dear SJP,

    STOP TALKING!!!!!!!!!!!

    - EVERYONE

  17. Des says:

    I’m pretty sure SJP gave this interview before the whole situation with Kim blew up but she sure has some nerve to be all “I never said anything” when she was on Colbert trash talking Kim.

  18. Jenna says:

    Pretty sure this interview happened before Kim’s brother passed. Unfortunate of People to put more fuel on the fire right now.

    • LAK says:

      Weekly magazines are locked on monday. Kim blew up on late saturday / early sunday. Plenty of time for SJP to contact People magazine to re-edit the articles.

      Also, People doesn’t print anything unapproved by it’s subjects. A quick call by her publicists and an entirely different article would have been published.

      • Purplehazeforever says:

        I’ve barely commented due to being a fan of neither woman. However, this interview was prior to the death of Kim Cattrall’s brother. Could she have her called or her publicist & have them edit anything out about Kim Cattrall. Possibly. I’m not sure. But SJP only referenced the series, movies & how she perceived their working relationship… however delusional that is. Maybe she chose to not comment further after the blowup on the IG account? Ugh..I don’t even like SJP but at this point…she was going to be asked about the blowup over SATC 3. Should she have given a no comment response? After the back and forth that happened? Both women are “difficult” but for different reasons. Their personalities clashed, it’s time for SJP to move on but she’s going to sell her narrative until she wears everyone else down..so my point is for everyone to ignore her. She’s exhausting.

      • Bee says:

        The article should have been pulled. Surely, they have a backup, even if it’s Jennifer Aniston “pregnant” for the 50th time…..

      • LAK says:

        Purplehazeforever: regardless of when interview was given, it could still be edited on monday or late night Sunday.

        SJP ( and all Alisters) has copy approval. One phonecall and this article would have been edited or pulled altogether.

      • magnoliarose says:

        They always have several backup stories and final approval. She could have changed the article. Period. She chose not to because she lives in a universe where only she matters. If Vogue can do it, People can do it, and it isn’t as easy to do with a monthly magazine. People’s cycle is faster, and they are accustomed to last-minute updates or changes for example if a celebrity dies suddenly or a huge scandal breaks out over the weekend. People magazine lives in the pockets of publicists and relies on being a friendly source for their material.
        She didn’t care.

      • Purplehazeforever says:

        Again I said I wasn’t sure, that it was possible. I don’t run a magazine but apparently Celebitchy commenters do, lol. The interview most definitely occurred BEFORE the sudden passing of Kim Cattrall’s brother, the comments weren’t bad & regardless of how you view SJP, that was how she viewed the SATC series & movies. Is she self-aware? No. Many actors aren’t. So let’s say the article could have pulled…SJP wasn’t going to pull it. She’s going to keep putting forth the narrative she wants out there. You can either take it for what it is and ignore her or argue that she needs to shut up. She’s not worth the energy, really.

      • Lorelai says:

        @LAK, my thoughts exactly. Obviously the interview was done prior to the death but SJP absolutely could have requested that they hold off a few weeks for her big cover story, or at the very least, removed the remarks about Kim.

        I don’t think she can control herself. She HAS to be out there trying to convince everyone of her rightness. It’s gross.

      • noway says:

        The original online article posted yesterday’s didn’t have this in it, and people including Celebitchy said it was weird it wasn’t mentioned. I agree. Ideally in a nice it’s not hard to stay in business as a magazine world they should have pulled the article due to Kim’s brother’s death, but look at all the posts on here unfortunately it is a reader magnet. In fairness they either used the first online article purely as a teaser for more gossip, or they may have been trying to see what people would think about the article without it in it, and the reaction I think was pretty swift to why isn’t it there. Not liking it, but I do understand.

    • magnoliarose says:

      @purplehaze
      :) The interview was before I agree.
      I am just familiar with how it works for different reasons.

      When I see your name I think of Jimi Hendrix.

  19. SM says:

    I find it telling that this woman has no friends in her life that would be honest enough to try and show her the world around and that she exists in the world amdshe is not a center of the universe. She keeps talking about being hurt. When Kim is mourning the death of her brother. Man, it’s shoildn’t be that difficult to do the math and see who is hurting more amd jist shut the f*up at least in this moment in time about your self and you hurting.

    • Scarlett says:

      She has a husband, I’m wondering what he is making of all this? Maybe he has been desensitized to her egomaniacal behavior..

    • emilybyrd says:

      Also, SJP has a career and little kids… I just don’t know how or why she spends all this time obsessed about Kim and SATC. SATC is over–move on. Kim doesn’t want anything to do with you. She’s made that very clear. Most people I know who have a career and kids are so busy that they barely have any free time left over. Yet from what’s been hashed out so publicly, it seems like SJP’s been doing nothing but stewing and talking for quite a while now about a potential third SATC movie and Kim’s reaction to it! The woman has gone off the deep end. Makes me sad because I can never watch my favorite SATC episodes now without thinking, every time I see Carrie, “Oh. There goes that unhinged b***h.”

  20. Bee says:

    As a casual observer I feel completely done with SJP, so I can’t begin to imagine how Kim Cattrall feels. The woman needs to learn to shut it. Regardless of who said what first, JUST BE QUIET.

  21. naomipaige says:

    Cry me a river!! SJP is so fake. She really needs to just STFU about this already! Sheesh!

  22. Krill says:

    Meh. If Kim can single out Sarah as she did with Piers, Sarah can say she was hurtful to do so. You dont get to minimise one and magnify the other. And in the same way that all anti Pitt articles filled with actual insider info were written off as tabloid guesswork, I dont see why surface pieces articulating what everyone apparently already knew about that SATC set are being declared as SJP driven. People probably root for her because she is a pleasant likeable person or maybe she isnt and they root for her because Kim is unpleasant.

    Because a 60 year old woman confronted by the death of a sibling and still clinging to such a silly grudge so hard that she would type that on instagram is a petty unpleasant person even in the best of circumstances.

    • Tania says:

      Umm, Bella DuPont is that you? First of all, every comment Kim made has been a reaction to all the things SJP has said either by her own mouth or her mouthpieces.

      The grudge is entirely on SJP’s part because she doesn’t get to make bank on another terrible movie. Deep down she knows a movie without its favorite character (Samantha) will not be enjoyable (the last one was already terrible as it is!)

      A 50 year old woman should be old enough to know better. She can join one of her bff’s real housewives shows. She’d fit in there.

      • katie3 says:

        which one is the 50 year old woman?

      • Christin says:

        Sarah is in her early 50s, and Kim is nearly 10 years older (though looking at them, one might guess opposite ages for them).

      • Krill says:

        My name is Krill not DuPoint. But its good to know that there are others not drinking the Koolaid. Anyway, from what I see SJPs friends are simply defending someone they like from an unwarranted attack on her by an ex co-worker who was jealous of her status on the show and now lies that she employed a negotiating tactic that failed.

        I am aware of the show although I never watched a full episode or movies. I am not the demo and frankly the only show about four white ladies I would ever spare a minute for is Golden Girls. So for me, this unpleasant persons exit is great. It gives the producers a shot at making this show speak to more than just middle aged white women. Step 1 give Laverne Cox that sexy girl part. Step 2 de-vanilla the rest of NYC.

      • minx says:

        Krill, you seem to be completely overlooking the fact that Kim Cattrall’s brother died. This isn’t some garden variety beef between coworkers.

      • Bellagio DuPont says:

        @Tania

        I’m starting to think you’ve developed a crush on me……😀. Thanks but no thanks, my girl crush is Priyanka Chopra and I intend on staying faithful.

        Besides, you are NOT dragging me back into this jungle fight, I still haven’t regrown all the hair and teeth I lost from the last go round.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Or… Kim was pushed to her breaking point during a time when she was incredibly emotionally vulnerable and she lashed out at SJP. It’s a very psychologically human reaction. Doesn’t make her an unpleasant person, it simply makes Kim human.

    • Bridget says:

      I see your point, though that same logic must be applied to the fact that it’s also widely “known” that SJP uses proxies in the press. It’s social warfare to try to pressure Kim into continuing with the role (she’s done it for years).

    • magnoliarose says:

      Sarah, you must stop. This can only be you or Andy your back up bitch because this is just too mean to be a by stander. Or Andy Coop on a coffee break doing recon. Maybe Stanford because he can’t live large on residuals.
      Grief has no age, and neither does fed up and over it. SJP isn’t an ingenue, so the age reference is moot.

    • Coco says:

      @ Krill

      For someone who doesn’t watch the show you sure are an SJP Stan. Why the vitriol for Kim in every article posted the past couple of days?

      Even IF Kim is in the wrong and SJP is the poor victim, can we agree that SJP should drop the victim tour so soon after Kim’s brother’s death? Can you see how decent it would be to not say anything in response to Kim’s IG right now? To not send out her friends and PR people while Kim has been planning a funeral? To not have two magazine covers discussing their feud while the Cattrall family is mourning the loss of a loved one? If SJP really was the bigger person all these years, then why the massive media push right now? Instead, she comes across as incredibly self-involved, insensitive, and only concerned with her PR image. I find it disgusting.

      • Coco says:

        Also, the only reason this continues to be a story is because SJP and her friends and/or PR team keep talking about it. Kim has been silent since her IG post. Logically, with the way our news cycle works these days, everyone would have forgotten about this story two days after the IG post. With the Olympics going on, Trump doing something moronic daily, and the horrific school shooting in Florida yesterday there are multiple stories to catch the public’s attention. If SJP didn’t want the focus on her then she should have stopped talking days ago.

      • Amy Too says:

        Why is it that these SJP defenders always claim to have never seen the show or the movies? Do they think it makes their argument seem more logical, like it’s not coming from someone who is clouded by the fact that their a huge fan of the show? I think that’s always such a tell, when someone goes out of their way to say “I don’t even care about this, I don’t like either woman, I don’t even know the show, I’ve never seen an episode…” followed by the same pro-SJP talking points over and over again. I also don’t understand how one can claim to have never watched the show or follow the actresses but somehow have all this inside information about who was jealous of whom on set, who spoke to whom, who had diva demands, etc. It doesn’t make any sense. I would believe these type of comments were genuine and not paid-for-by-SJP if the commenter said that they watched the show and saw all the movies and really liked everything about SJP and her character. Then you can at least imagine that they’re coming from a place of misguided fandom. But when they harp on the fact that they’re SO FAR REMOVED from all of it and thus the only people who can possibly see it all clearly and logically without bias, then I know they’re faking. It’s like when people come on and claim to be a WOC and then talk about “reverse racism” against white people and now it’s true and exists. Or people who claim to be survivors of childhood sexual abuse, plus multiple rapes and claim that #metoo has gone too far. I don’t feel the need to preface all of my opinions with a list of my qualifications for having that opinion, and it doesn’t make it more believable when trolls do it either.

    • CairinaCat says:

      Oh look here is krill (Bella Dupont?) SJP’s PR shill right on schedule.
      I don’t know why you bother, surly you’ve noticed that the commenters aren’t stupid here.
      We SEE sjp for what she is

  23. HK9 says:

    SJP didn’t speak to her in the make up room for YEARS during the show(as well as the other two). It’s not fabricated. No one believes that this came out of nowhere-no.one. The fact that she’s got to continue to push her side of the story while Kim is grieving her dead brother tells me all I need to know about who SJP really is.

    • Raina says:

      Hk9, I’m curious as to what the problem between those two were during the last few seasons? I’ve read contradictory things depending on whose camp responds. When I watch re-runs from rare time to time, I always try and see if I can pick up any strife in their acting, but they’re pretty good about it.

      • HK9 says:

        Apparently after Darin Starr left, and SJP became an executive producer the tensions that were there became much worse. One of the main things that came out was that Kim wanted to do less nudity and SJP was unresponsive to that request. Since we know that SJP lives in the land of petty, you can close your eyes and imagine how she would respond to any request from Kim if she had already made a habit of not speaking to her. Some people blame HBO, but my feeling is the source of that issue was much closer to the show.

      • magnoliarose says:

        One thought about the nudity. It means that Kim had to stay in top shape all the time and be nude on set and that is uncomfortable and awkward. If a castmate asked that most people would understand and accommodate their wish. I would hope a woman would be even more sensitive to it.

  24. PlayItAgain says:

    Like anyone cares what that walking closet thinks. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be so far up your own a$$ you actually believe your own paid puff pieces. SJP needs to sit down.

  25. Erinn says:

    I’ve never watched an episode of this show, or the movies. But she’s not even saying “I refuse to let you do this movie with or without me!”

    Couldn’t they just bring in some ‘protegee’ of Samantha’s or something and say Samantha retired and is off on a beach somewhere with a hot dude? I don’t understand why – when she’s essentially given her blessing to move on without her with a new character – they don’t just do it.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I’m betting that the studios have said that they won’t fund unless all 4 original characters/actresses come back, hence she SJP is so obsessed will bullying Kim over it.

      • minx says:

        Exactly. Also, I would be surprised if Chris Noth would sign on for another picture, after SATC2 was such a stink bomb. But they could kill Big off and Carrie could be free to date! I’m sure Aiden is somewhere still pining for Carrie 🙄. So they couldn’t have 2 deaths of major cast characters. No Samantha, no movie.

      • Lady D says:

        She can more than afford to bankroll the damn movie herself if she wants it that badly. She can also afford to pay Kim what she’s worth in that stupid movie if she wants her so badly. If SPJ really wants that movie, put your money where your mouth is.

    • FredsMother says:

      Think it’s because as the seasons went by, and when the movie came out, us girls showed up for Samantha…Kim is a great actress…without her the series would have flatlined.

      Seriously though, how could SJP think that Kim should feel obligated or compelled to work with her when it is clear that the work environment is somewhere between strained and toxic? How do you not leave a person alone when she asks you to? How, as a woman in her 50s, and with young children in school, does SJP not see that her actions are bullying, very worrisome to say the least? I am honest-to-goodness scandalised by this disturbing behaviour. Set a better example for your children, SJP. That New York society and crew SJP hangs with must be really rough if she thinks her behaviour is acceptable.

      That people magazine cover should have been delayed. Now it just looks like SJP is intentionally capitalising on the PR from the spat surrounding Kim’s brother’s death. Maaaaaajjjjjoooooor shame on you SJP.

      • Jayna says:

        Stop with the “us girls” showed up for Samantha. That may be true for some. My friends and I showed up for the show and all of the women, all of their stories, all of their realism of friendship, which means they did some great acting, I guess. It was believable. It was about their friendships that pulled me in the most. I adored Miranda, and she was my least favorite in the beginning. But Cynthia Nixon was amazing as Miranda and the complexities of her character.

        I loved the show, not one person. And that’s what made the show a success, a group effort, each bringing something special to the show. Samantha was superb, don’t get me wrong. I loved what she brought to the show, the great one-liners and balls and sexiness. I tuned into the show after hearing about her, but that’s not what kept me tuned in each episode. Because her character needed the balance of the other women that brought different things to the show. I loved Carrie also. It was four different women who shared a bond in the great NYC and their crazy lives as singe women there.

      • Trashaddict says:

        Realism?? Samantha was a column writer in NYC with a huge apt and Manolo Blahnik (however you spell it) shoes. Realism?

      • Amy Too says:

        Trashaddict, I think you mean Carrie. She was the one with the huge wardrobe and expensive shoes and the apartment in NYC that she was paying for with her one column.

    • Bridget says:

      Honestly, the show doesn’t work with only 3 of the women (and I’d say this about any of them that missed). The personalities are all designed to have 1 defining characteristic and they balance each other out.

      • magnoliarose says:

        It is an ensemble and the chemistry that people liked. I really do think though Samantha, if pushed, would be the most impossible to replace. I know I used to wait for her scenes the most. But that is also what gave it balance.

      • Bridget says:

        Samantha’s scenes may have always been the most sexy, but her character also was the most confident and practical about pretty much everything else. And there was so much humor in her storylines. The only weak spots were when she got too campy.

        Ultimately the show’s ensemble was a woman’s psyche symbolically divided into 4 – Career, Sex, Family, and “I don’t know”. It’s out of balance otherwise.

      • magnoliarose says:

        That makes sense, and I think there is a little of each in our personalities to varying degrees.
        It would have been more interesting in the subsequent movies the storylines moved with the times, but they didn’t. As I got closer to their age from the series, after it was over it began to seem dated. Now that I am in my 30s I don’t know anyone single like them at all.

    • Raina says:

      In my opinion I think another Samantha or even a different character would be a mistake. If they had a really strong story line, MAYBE they could have made it work with just the remaining 3. I doubt it. They’re not know for great storylines per se. It was the dynamic that worked.
      Then again maybe SJP is in the mood to kill off Kim’s character and have THAT be a storyline. Would receive A LOT of publicity, pro and con.

  26. Bobbymilly says:

    Can SJP just stop?

    Where are her friends or husband?

    Is there no one around her?

  27. ThenThereIsThat says:

    I found Kim’s character in sex in the city two-dimensional and unlikable. I am sure they could do another movie without her. Maybe they can’t? It has to be all-or-none?

    I personally don’t have a dog in this fight. I see Kim saying horrible things about SP and SP making small comments about Kim. It seems that many of you are assuming that she is getting others to do her nasty work. But perhaps her friends are doing it on their own because they think Kim is in the wrong?

    I think they both need to move on and shut up. Enough already!!! This is one reason women are not treated equally. Men usually don’t have these petty fights…

    • HK9 says:

      Here’s the thing though, SJP has been throwing shade and saying unpleasant things about Kim for years and the first I ever heard of Kim actually acknowledging is was twice, once on Piers Morgan and the other on her instagram regarding SJPs behaviour regarding her brother’s death. I don’t have time enough to list the bad things that SJP and her “friends” have said, leaving me to believe that she’s still having a tantrum over the fact that there will be STC3 movie. Kim Catrall has been the only one of the two who handled this in an adult manner and SJP is still doing the mean girl thing at 50.

    • magnoliarose says:

      You really believe men don’t act like whiny babies when they are mad at each other? They are petty and are worse gossips than women are stereotyped to be. Many actors act like complete petty Peters on set and in their jobs. Ever see a bunch of male models on a swim shoot? They are practically exhausting themselves checking each other out and dropping for pushups to near exhaustion to look more pumped. And catty as hell. Those abs are lipo sculpted! He’s on steroids look, and he packs his trunks! That’s a sock!
      If anything men are worse.
      This is SJPs poor behavior on full display, and she has to own it. She can flood the comment sections like a Russian bot, but we aren’t stupid.

      • anne says:

        @ThenThereIsThat I don’t have a dog in this fight. LOl then continues to defend that narcissist SJP. Is that you SJP?

      • SlightlyAnonny says:

        @ magnoliarose. I don’t know what’s worse, that a PR troll would spew such sexism or that a real person actually believes it.

        I can’t dig it up now but there are tons of blinds about the fact that the two male leads of Sherlock hate each other. Hate each other to the point that they will not act with each other. As in one male lead, instead of reading his line said, “blah, blah, blah your line.” Giving his male scene partner nothing to act against and making his job harder. But, you know, you need ovaries to be petty.

        Also, all the characters where two dimensional, they just were. Any depth came from the actresses and what Catrall and Nixon mainly could work into their roles.

  28. Gisele says:

    SJP needs to give it a rest. She’s so narcissistic and lacking self awareness, it’s frightening. She clearly believes her own PR. Someone finally called her on her phony, saccharine persona and she can’t handle it. STFU and let the poor woman grieve her brother. Carrie Bradshaw was an insufferable character who couldn’t accept the personal boundaries and feelings of others and could never let anyone else have the last word. Everything was about her and only her. SJP clearly modelled her after herself.

  29. Adorable says:

    TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY!!At this point nothing SJP says can change,”how you view her”.Its clear they weren’t close(& you don’t have to be close to a colleague),however I don’t see kim as “The innocent victim”laying down after all these years narrative.Again TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY!

  30. agnes says:

    …and there she is, talking again…

  31. littlemissnaughty says:

    Oh my god, stop embarrassing yourself, SJP. Whatever happened, whatever was said, she should’ve read the room when KC’s brother passed. How do you keep this going in light of that?

  32. Beluga says:

    Honestly, this site keeps me sane sometimes. Thank god for the commenters here! Practically everywhere else on the internet, SJP is an angel and Kim is an evil witch. It was the same around the Amber Heard/Johnny Depp story.

  33. SammynotSosa says:

    It’s odd seeing so many people who are positive SJP is in the wrong. It’s takes two people to carry on a feud. And Kim wasn’t friends according to her to the other actors too. The common denominator is her. She reminds me of Debra Winger who constantly feuded with actors and directors and then people blamed her aging as to why she barely worked. The truth from her is she wasn’t happy and worked less. Hopefully she worked on herself. And hopefully sjp and Kim do the same to figure out why this is so public. And hopefully you guys realize you’re all speculating on who the bad guy is. if either SJP or Kim are your enemies, good god.

    • Tania says:

      Actually the “feud” was entirely one-sided for a long time until Kim went on Piers to speak. Until then it was sjp and her minions doing all the shading and dirty work. This only blew up because Kim got tired of being bullied by sarah. The truth is, SATC wouldn’t survive a 3rd movie because without Samantha the movie is flat and sjp knows this, hence her full on blitz of demonizing Kim. It must be nice to live in a world where the bully is the victim like sjp claims she is. There is no speculation. Follow the crumbs. I see sjp’s little minions are trying to infiltrate Celebitchy again with their narrative. We see you.

      • noway says:

        Who is kidding who the first SATC movie wasn’t that bad but the second was awful, stupid, and seemed dated. The third would just be horrible with or without Kim. The tv show was good though, but it did wane in the last few season. Thank you Kim for not subjecting your fans to that drivel. I like to remember the good SATC.

    • minx says:

      Did you miss the part of the story about Kim’s brother dying?

      • Adorable says:

        How’s kim brother passing SJP’s fault??Almost all her former co-stars sent they’re condolences via social media,it apparently become a problem when SJP did it,the same people would’ve been crucifying her had she said nothing.

      • minx says:

        No matter how Kim responded to SJP’s “Dearest Kim” tweet, that should have been the end of it. Even if she thought Kim’s response was over the top, SJP should have shut up, been the better person, cut Kim slack, been gracious, etc. etc. etc. instead she keeps blabbing.

      • Adorable says:

        The fact that SJP actually aknowledged the passing of some one who. She knows doesn’t care for her shows me she’s gracious.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        Doing it in private is gracious. Doing it on social media is manipulative. It puts Kim – whose brother had JUST passed – in the position of either acting like everything is fine now lest she be called an ass or doing what she did. Tell SJP to shove off and be called an ass. Yeah, how gracious of SJP.

      • Adorable says:

        Oh please,her co-stars sent condolences via social media & she was fine with it(& apparently so are you),which tells me she’s harbored certain feelings for a while,a mature phone call,to the one who feels wronged would’ve solved all this.

      • HK9 says:

        @littlemissnaughty You’re entirely correct. She should have done it in private expecting nothing in return. SJP’s miscalculation was that she thought Kim cared what anyone else thought and didn’t think she’d get the proverbial ‘slap’ in public.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        @Adorable: Her former co-stars are not part of this dumb fight. If she is fine with them, that is her prerogative. If I’m sick and when I get back the co-workers I like put flowers on my desk, I appreciate it. If that one bitch who’s been backstabbing me (or who simply knows we don’t get along) does the same, they do it because they’re trying to send a message to the office. I don’t understand how this is a hard concept to grasp.

      • Adorable says:

        @LittleMissNaughty,It takes two people to fight & in this “dumb fight”as u call it,Kim has been the one “Going in”.Sjp was asked why there is third film,she’s yet to mention kim by name or put anything out there that kim herself hasn’t said,the fact that we’re now believing “sources”who say Sjp was a bitch I find questionable…

      • anne says:

        @ Adorable this is not a fight. KC has told SJP she doesn’t f*ck with her but the psychopath SJP will not leave her alone. She discussed her in all the talk shows she went to this last month. Nice try. PR plant

      • noway says:

        @littlemissnaughty I wouldn’t assume the person who hates you at work wouldn’t send condolences on the death of a family member. Death triumphs anything. I know for me, I rarely disliked anyone enough a death in the family wouldn’t make me feel sad for that person. Also, as the person who has been at work when a close loved one died, you don’t notice the petty fights as it seems trivial.

        My problem with SJP isn’t really this, and I don’t have a problem with Kim’s reaction to SJP post either as people who grieve can act any way they want as far as I am concerned, provided it doesn’t physically hurt anyone. My problem is Kim has a right to not do this movie or feel bad about it. She can just be done, leave it alone.

  34. Whydoicare says:

    Why is everyone so anti SJP? I really don’t get it.
    Seems to me Kim has been the one making terrible comments and doing bad interviews. Sounds like she didn’t get along well with most of her co-stars.
    Is SJP not allowed to comment on her experiences too? Imagine the headlines if she said “no comment” when Kim’s brother passed away?
    Usually the one pointing fingers is the problem in, my opinion.
    Feel very sorry for Kim. Instead of focusing on her family and processing her grief, she’s attacking old co-stars.

  35. LittlefishMom says:

    Don’t believe a word of this.

  36. HelloSunshine says:

    So basically all this mean girl is doing is proving Kim’s point right? Kim is grieving something traumatic and SJP just can’t let it go. It’s really gross and I don’t understand how anyone could be supporting her side at this point.

  37. SlightlyAnonny says:

    Every time, I see something SJP and Kim related, I hear that great Michael Jackson song “Leave Me Alone” in my head and imagine singing it to SJP on Kim’s behalf. Leave her alone, SJP. She sees you for what you are, she doesn’t want to/wasn’t incentivized enough to work with you again, and her brother just died. Take her name out of your mouth and leave her alone.

    That said I have started watching Sensitive Skin and it is actually really good. I’m only two episodes in and I’ve laughed out loud and cringed several times.

  38. Miss M says:

    My God she is exhausting…She needs to have the last word, doesn’t she?
    Let it go, cray Bish!
    If you thought Samantha was so important to SATC, you should have treated Kim Cattral better. But you know your ego was too bruised to admit she is the better actress eith the most interesting character.
    Get a hobby and leave KC alone!
    Ps: I am questioning Anderson Cooper’s character now by association with Andy Cohen et al.

  39. Jayna says:

    She gave this interview before the brother went missing. I don’t think she said anything bad here.

    I don’t really care, I guess. I always say there’s a middle as far as truth. In this situation, I can see how both sides have their view. I do think Kim iied about saying a year ago no movie, and nothing further was said. I do think SJP played the “grieving” over the movie thing too much, and so Kim had a right to do Piers and say her piece, even if she wasn’t completely honest about some form of negotiation going on. And I do think Sarah, in her perception of everything, had a right to say on WWHL that it hurt her to hear Kim call working with all of the girls toxic and there was no friendship. Kim said it coldly.

    So it’s their view of events. Sarah did need to stop her pity party, though, publicly on it not happening. That was directed at Kim, so Kim went back at er. Ultimately, whatever happened, Kim decided not to do it, and one statement by SJP should have been enough and move on. Nobody cares about the movie anyway.

    Team Sex and The City, the show, always. As I said, I love all of the women and all of the characters. I think I might do another re-watch of the series from beginning to end. It will be my third time.

  40. Svea says:

    I had apparently fallen for her schtick. Then I really understood Cattrell’s point of view. Now, Parker has started to nauseate me.

  41. Betsy says:

    Sarah Jessica Parker just comes off like a snake! It’s so terribly disingenuous for her to make such claims and it insults the intelligence of people. I remember last fall, SJP. I also remember that trash movie you made, and I remember how Kim Cattrall’s character was made to seem totally sex crazed. Goodness me. Quit it.

  42. MoAnne says:

    “I WILL NOT BE IGNORED, Kim”! Do you hear ME? Stop grieving over your brother’s death and pay attention to ME.

    My goodness. I’ve had to deal with a narcissist in my family. With all the chaos and drama they like to cause, each year can feel like 7. Sarah Jessica Stalker’s publicists need to pull her aside and have a chat with her. But, I bet it also has to do with control issues, too. SJS has used the media to attack Kim and get her way. Kim always came crawling back to make another movie and play nice. Now, that this strategy has backfired and made her look bad to boot, SJS can’t stand it. She’s losing her grip.

  43. geneva says:

    It seems that the damage control is so rapid fire – in order to smooth over the rift – that it does seem even more insensitive to someone who is grieving not only a brother’s death but the fact that he had gone missing and K. Catrall had actually reached out on social media..basically saying “folks, my brother is missing ..has ANYONE seen him?” My question is where was SJP then? Why not say “Kim – we have friends in that part of Canada (or wherever) and have passed the info. along. Our thoughts are with you.” It seemed KC needed actual HELP finding her brother…it probably made her appreciate true kindness, friendship and caring…and then to get a tepid condolence note on social media from SJP…she just blew her lid. In grief and anger. My sense is she regrets posting it…but it also shows SJP’s true colors that she has to PR and Publicist her way out of it. SJP is a brand with a PR crisis, Kim Cattrall was just being human here.

  44. Mumbles says:

    Do we know whether this interview happened before or after Cattrall’s brother died? Because if she’s continuing this nonsense knowing full well that Cattrall is grieving, she is beyond mean….she’s evil.

    And I’m sick of this crap about how beautiful and lovely SATC 3 was going to be. The first two movies were tacky and tone-deaf (in full disclosure I grew tired of the show itself after a few seasons). If it’s so wonderful, just do it without Cattrall.

    • stinky says:

      … maybe thats what this is really all leading up to. Theyre really going to do the 3rd flik w/o ‘Samantha’. Catrall’s was a one-trick pony on that show – i dont get the worship AT ALL. She couldnt have been more predictable or cliche.

      • wood dragon says:

        Based on those few episodes I made myself watch and chunks of the two movies, Samantha’s character became a joke by the time they did the second film. It must have been so trying to have to play that character by the end. I don’t blame her at all for wanting to get on with her career and never returning to that franchise.
        SJP needs to let it go and move on. Her character in the show was a glorified ingenue and she’s too mature for that now.

      • minx says:

        Kim did the best she could with the material she was given. Her character degenerated into a menopausal sex-crazed mess.

    • magnoliarose says:

      SJP could have altered her story or had People ax it all together. They always have backup stories, and they always leave room for fixes until the last minute. Once she found out Kim’s brother was missing she could have changed the story for at least 24 to 36 hours.
      The other question though is why is she even talking about it anymore anyway? Movies don’t get made for hundreds of reasons. The Spice Girls aren’t touring. The Hills reunion ain’t happening. Months about a film very few people wanted or cared about is beyond strange.
      The first two were horrible. The second I can’t even remember. I think I blocked it out.
      SJP is the only one going on and on about it like she is obsessive. So that then makes me wonder why.
      Much more beloved films have never had the sequel the public wants, and the stars didn’t whine and scream and smear like this. It is only a movie.

  45. Heat says:

    I don’t like either one of them, to be honest.

  46. Anna says:

    I’ve broken up with a friend who was just like SJP. She then sent over her boyfriend to make me feel like I’m the worst person on the planet to break up with the most perfect girl to ever exist. Makes me sick to keep seeing this behaviour.

  47. Rachel in August says:

    Well that’s an issue of people I won’t be buying :)

  48. Cher says:

    SJP should just shut up. Enough is enough.

  49. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Has her husband come out of the closet yet?

  50. perplexed says:

    I don’t get why SJP cares whether people think she’s nice or not. When you make it to the top in a place like Hollywood, I figure you’d have thicker skin.

    People like J-Lo have had worse said about them, but they keep on truckin’.

    Regardless of whatever you may think of Kim Cattrall, it doesn’t seem like she cares whether you think positively or negatively about her.

    Ideally neither would be fighting publicly, but SJP’s need to control public perception of her is a little weird to me. Just let it pass and most likely people will forget about it.

  51. Bug says:

    SJP has been using Woddy Allen tactics, and that is about the worst thing I can say about someone.

  52. ravynrobyn says:

    My god, I didn’t realize SJP is ill-severely mentally ill. Yikes!

  53. mela says:

    she seems like she is the type that HAS to have the last word

  54. Cookiejar says:

    All it does is confirm that she’s no actress. In SATC she was being herself. A selfish, self-centered bitch. Oh and I HATED Mr. Big.

    • Rachel in August says:

      Me too. I liked Aiden and she buggered that up too. When she threw food at the wall because Big had to go to Paris for work, that was it. Jesus Christ, get over yourself, girl! “You have to put an ocean between us!” I’d have thrown her right out the door then.

  55. jetlagged says:

    SJP is in full damage control mode because she has a high-profile product launch with Gap Kids – she (and Gap) have to protect her image at all costs. This is about the $$$ her product endorsements and licensing deals are bringing in. Those are directly impacted by the public’s perception of SJP. No one cares about SATC any more.

  56. Christina S. says:

    The 2nd movie got a 16% rating on rotten tomatoes and she wants to do a 3rd movie!!?? That’s what’s really funny about all of this. Let’s waste money and lose money while we release a movie that like won’t even score double digits in ratings.

  57. Jay says:

    Team Kim all the way! I’ve been exhausted by SJP’s good girl act for yeaaaars. As have many of you. Yuck.

  58. Adele Dazeem says:

    BUT HER EMAILS?!?!?!?!

    lol seriously what do we have to do to make this old as f non story go away?????

  59. Jennifer says:

    I am sure Matthew is rolling his eyes going, “mmmHMMMM”

  60. Justwastingtime says:

    SJP was a scrappy child actress who reportedly supported her large family growing up., Its always been odd that she used that fakey gee whiz tone during all her interviews when she clearly is s hustler (which I admired till she became cruel)

    I am no shrink but it seems like she was always trying to be something she was not. Self loathing maybe?

  61. raincoaster says:

    One thing she does NOT say is “They were untrue.” Hmm, wonder why?

  62. Texasho says:

    Is it just me or is SJP starting to look like a really bad, aging drag queen? I’m no stylist, but perhaps a shorter hair-do and less eye makeup?
