    Team kidney is a loon, but team writer is a plagiarizing bullying hack. And she got her friends to pile on and make it sound like “oh team kidney pitched this nothing to see” is a defense. Got caught in gaslighting lie after lie after lie-and then even put in writing that they stole team kidneys work verbatim.

    Kidney took it way overboard and is annoying and harassing writer- but everyone in this story comes out looking awful.

    • minx says:

      I started to read Bad Art Friend yesterday and I just gave up. It was so lengthy and I wasn’t responding well to either woman, so I cut my losses lol.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Scal, agreed on all points. I’m firmly Team No One in that story.

      (Except for maybe Kidney Lady’s husband who said only “oh” about the whole thing.)

      • Anne Call says:

        I’m team the guy who got a kidney that saved his life. Whatever her motives, team kidney did a good thing. The writer who took the story, used phrases from Dorland’s fb post in her story and turned the organ donor into an unsympathetic character is pretty terrible. And those mean girl texts that were made public should remind everyone to never write anything down that you wouldn’t want to see made public.

    • mellie says:

      I just waded through this article and what a crazy $hitshow. Sonya Larson is a plagiarizing fake a-hole, and Sarah Darland is seems kind of like an obsessed borderline stalker.
      And if I’m as talented as Celeste Ng, I’m not wanting my name associated with either of these two idiots.

  2. Anne says:

    I’m just annoyed that HBO funded this dated, classist nonsense and not season 2 of Lovecraft Country.

    • bettyrose says:

      I can’t like this comment enough. Lovecraft Country was a masterpiece. SATC was never good, IMHO, but even if it had some cultural value to add to the late 90s, that window has long since closed.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Hear, hear. I’m still mourning the loss of Lovecraft Country.

  3. minx says:

    Not watching the SATC reboot. SJP needs a makeover.

    • Lady D says:

      I wish I didn’t love the pink dress she is in.

    • josephine says:

      is it wrong that I want to check in just to see that everyone, no matter how pretty they are, ages?? in some ways it was nice to see the photos from filming the show to remind myself that aging is perfectly natural and it happens to all of us.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Josephine I don’t think it’s wrong at all— it’s human nature! We’re curious about things like this. There are probably sooooo many other women out there who feel the same way.

        But since the entire world has gone insane, it would probably only be an issue if you were to admit it on a platform like Twitter, because people with nothing better to do would probably attack you for…(fill in the blank; they’ll come up with something, because you’re curious about something, it automatically means you’re not loyal to other women or some nonsense.) But people on CB are generally more open-minded and not waiting to attack their fellow posters.

        tl;dr no I don’t think it’s wrong at all!

    Justice for Kim Cattrall!

    • Kate says:

      Everytime I read the title ‘And Just Like That’ I feel violently irritated

      • Gina says:

        Same here! Not watching. I don’t understand… After 3 disastrous movies SJP still succeeded to milk this dead cow?
        Don’t take me wrong, I even liked SATS in 90th. I couldn’t stand Carrie character most of the time but still somehow enjoyed the sitcom. But now? And without Samantha?

      • Diana says:

        Agree with you both!!!!! Gina I also loved the show when it was on HBO, hated Carrie but still found enjoyment in the stories and other characters. Samantha was my favorite!!!!

      • Lorelei says:

        @Kate SAME! I get unreasonably annoyed whenever I hear it too. Not only because the whole thing is such an obvious money grab (as if any of these people need more 🙄) and a gigantic stroking of SJP’s ego, but because it’s so…extra. It’s so obvious that SJP just cannot let go of Carrie Bradshaw. She needs therapy, not another version of SATC.

        I loved the series when it was on and thought they nailed the ending, it was so perfect!, so I was surprised when they announced there would be a movie. The first movie wasn’t great, but it also wasn’t as horrendous as the second movie was.

        This is just so beyond ridiculous. No one wants this. It will suck without Samantha. The mere fact that it exists annoys me, lol.

    When I was growing up, there were no Jewish characters on tv (plenty of Jewish names in the credits, but no characters). Seinfeld is the first show I’m aware of with Jewish characters, followed by Friends and ER. And earlier than that, Dirty Dancing was the first movie about Jewish characters I can think of where the plot wasn’t about the experience of being Jewish, like they were Jewish but that wasn’t the point of the movie. But it’s not like with Black and Asian characters where white actors have historically played truly racist interpretations.

    • Ann says:

      Valerie Harper’s character Rhoda Morgenstern made her 1970 debut on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

      • bettyrose says:

        I completely forgot about Rhoda! But I didn’t grow up watching it, so technically it’s still true none of the shows I grew up on in the 80s had overtly Jewish characters. The father on Family Ties was played by a Jewish actor and it was definitely eluded to in some episodes with flashbacks to his childhood, but never stated outright.

      • bettyrose says:

        Oh, and Meathead on Archie Bunker! But again he was Jewish “in code,” like if you knew you knew.

      • minx says:

        Rob Reiner’s character in All in the Family was Michael Stivic, he was described as being a Polish American kid from Chicago.

      • bettyrose says:

        @Minx – That’s exactly I mean about being Jewish “in code.” The show stopped short of calling the character Jewish, but he appealed to Jewish viewers of that generation (e.g. my father) who could relate to him, many of whom had Archie Bunker types in their own lives.

    • Anne Call says:

      There was a show in the 1950’s called the Goldbergs about a Jewish family in Brooklyn. Dick Van Dyke show had Jewish actors/characters as well as Rhoda and All the Family. Not a lot but a few.

    • Chaine says:

      I wish this had its own blog post earlier in the day because I really want to hear what people think about Sarah’s comments. This past weekend I watched “Shiva Baby” on HBO. Polly Draper (from Thirtysomething) plays a Jewish character in the movie and the way she portrayed this character seemed so over-the-top stereotypical that I was thinking the whole time, “Is Polly Draper even Jewish? because if not this is borderline offensive.”

      Later I googled it and sure enough, there was an interview of the director that confronted her about neither Draper or the actress that plays her daughter actually being Jewish, and the director kind of wriggled out of any meaningful reflection on that by saying basically, “Well I’m Jewish and I cast them for these roles so it’s fine.”

      • ME says:

        I just recently washed Shiva Baby as well. I’m disappointed to learn the actresses aren’t really Jewish. Now the movie just seems straight up offensive. Like why couldn’t they have hired Jewish actresses?

      • bettyrose says:

        I haven’t watched that. Should I? When I read Sarah Silverman’s comments, I was reminded of the movie Mermaids, which was based on a book my mom had bought me as a kid to make sure I had books that featured a variety of different types of Jewish families. In the movie, the main characters are played by Cher, Bob Hoskins, Winona Ryder, and Christina Ricci, of whom only Winona Ryder is Jewish in real life, but that never bothered me about the movie. There were no stereotypes and part of the theme is that the mom doesn’t really care about being Jewish and doesn’t pass it along to her daughters, but I always liked that it’s a weird dysfunctional family that just happens to be Jewish. But Silverman is specifically making a point about characters whose Jewishness is “front and center,” while I think it’s still a victory when characters are Jewish without that being the whole point of their character, so we’re kinda discussing different things.

      • Dashen’ka says:

        I love Peaky Blinders but I am still pissed about the “Orthodox Jewish thug” character played by TOM HARDY of all people. It was a disgusting caricature.

    • Truthiness says:

      I 100% agree with you on the big picture Betty Rose but I always looked up to Joan Rivers. Even when she had a style of comedy I didn’t love. It was that a woman held her own on Johnny Carson and eventually became his permanent sub when he was on vacation. Before Johnny froze her out, that is. Joan is an icon.

    • Zoochy says:

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Rachel Brosnahan at least partially Jewish? I would think since she’s related to Kate Spade (who was)

      • Sue Denim says:

        no, kate spade wasn’t jewish, and neither is rachel, overall I’m jewish and am not sure how I feel about this all but it is an interesting conversation to have. before reading this, I was watching Scenes from a Marriage and found myself a little disappointed to learn that the guy is supposed to be jewish but isn’t and in subtle ways he does read as off that way to me, but then, how far do we draw the line between characters and actors, fantasy and real life…

    • Lorelei says:

      @BettyRose, I think the first time I saw it was on Little House on the Prairie (any other LH fans here?!). Nellie Oleson fell in love with Percival, a man hired by her parents to teach her how to cook.

      The fact that he was Jewish didn’t even come up until they were planning their wedding, and when informed that his family was Jewish, Mrs. Oleson momentarily went into shock and totally lost her sh!t and screamed from a window, “Jewish? He’s JEWISH?!” as her husband just sort of shrugs apologetically. But her character was well known throughout the entire series for being a bigot, so the show is poking fun at *her* reaction, not the fact that someone was (gasp!) Jewish. It’s actually a very funny scene!

      Anyway, he became a regular on the show, and I don’t think it was ever even mentioned again until they were going to have children.
      Totally not the point, but I really liked his character, and was so sad to learn that the actor died of AIDS at a very young age. The actress who played Nellie was actually good friends with him IRL and was there until the very end. 💔

      Oh and I also love Mermaids but I feel like no one else I know ever even heard of it. So underrated!

    “That letter was just too damn good.”

    That poor woman. Honestly, Larson is wrong IMO. This will not hold up well to a jury of people who are immersed in the literary world (and white frankly may be hostile to it).

  7. Stacy Dresden says:

    Pass. SATC is in the history books

  8. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    It’s obvious that Patricia Fields is not doing the costuming on the latest SATC. I loved most of the looks she has created across a variety of shows. The fashion has been atrocious this go round.

    • Watson says:

      This!!! I would rather watch patricia field’s work on Emily in Paris than this pile of poop. No Samantha? No fun fantastical clothing? More of Carrie behaving like a self absorbed airhead but in her 50’s now???? Hard pass.

      • LaUnicaAngelina says:

        I enjoyed the looks on Emily in Paris too! I actually enjoyed that show too. *hangs head in shame*

  9. Busyann says:

    I never liked SATC, I didn’t get the allure. With life being so chaotic the past 18 months though, I’m reaching for nostalgia and comfort and SATC belonged to a simpler time that’s still relatively recent. If any of what I just wrote makes sense. I won’t be watching, but it is kind of nice to hear the familiar music, see the fashion choices, and even SJP’s energy and excitement about the role. One thing I am curious about….I can’t tell and it’s driving me nuts….have they made the ladies look older than they normally do even in their personal lives or is that just me? I feel like Carrie and Miranda are more noticeably grey.

  10. Lunasf17 says:

    The Diplo fiasco is messy AF and sounds like him and the woman pressing charges had some weird, toxic relationship…also he was banging 17 year old Azalia Banks when he was in his 30s??!! Yuck.

  11. Merricat says:

    I started out mad, then it made me laugh, and now I’m at the place where I see these photos from SATC and I just feel sad for SJP, who so needs reassurance that she’s going back to the last place she got it, and she’s dragging those other women with her. You can’t go home again, SJP. I don’t even like her, but I’m kind of embarrassed for her. I feel that way about all entertainment that is made in service to the artist’s ego and little else.

  12. Lala11_7 says:

    Been a SJP fan since “Square Pegs”…that hasn’t changed…watched SITC then…watch it now…and can’t wait for the next episode.

  13. Grant says:

    I know I’m probably in the minority but I’m going to watch “And Just Like That.” I’m excited to see how they incorporate these fabulous women of color–especially the divine Nicole Ari Parker–into the cast.
