Who knew that a third Sex and the City movie could cause so much drama when it was never even made? We all know the actual film would be terrible (after the disastrous sequel, how could it be good?). But the behind-the-scenes, real-life drama has been much more entertaining to see unfold…because it’s all so petty. Ladies, just go out for a boozy brunch to air your grievances in alcohol-fueled private like the rest of us.
If you have been living under a social media rock for the past six months, there has been an ongoing feud between former SATC cast mates Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall, and it all (re)started over the failure-to-launch third SATC movie. Back in September of 2017, Parker confirmed that there wouldn’t be a third film in the franchise. “We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story,” she said. “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.”
Cattrall felt singled out as the reason why the third movie wasn’t happening, and responded in an interview with Piers Morgan that she was simply done playing Samantha and only looking forward in her life and career, not backwards. She could have just left it at that diplomatic reason but, well, she twisted the knife a bit. Cattrall made it clear that, being 10 years older than the other SATC stars, they had “never been friends.” Damn, girl, that is way harsh.
And then instead of talking things over to each other like real adults, Parker gave her response to Andy Cohen on his Bravo show, “I found it very upsetting cause that’s not the way I recall our experience.”
Here’s where things took a turn for the very publicly nasty (as if it wasn’t already). After Cattrall’s brother Chris died recently, Parker was asked about it at a press event for her HBO series Divorce. “If somebody in your life, whether you’re in touch with them or not, [is] suffering for any reason, it’s involuntary that you want to convey condolences or sadness or just let someone know you’re thinking about them,” she said. “I can’t begin to know how her family is managing such a loss. We all send her our love and condolences and grant her the privacy that she’s asked for.”
Well, Cattrall definitely did not like that. She decided to take to Instagram to continue to air out their dirty laundry.
Come on ladies, just take this to DMs! Each response is even pettier than the last, and it’s all because none of this is being said to each other. This is not how Carrie and Samantha would handle things. And if you’re growing tired of the immaturity of this ongoing feud, you are not alone. Cohen — one of SJP’s longtime friends — is very over it as well.
Very clearly Team Parker, Cohen had one last thing to say: “There’s only one person fighting here.” So basically be on the lookout for another social media takedown from Cattrall soon — but this time, Cohen might be the subject. (And calling Ryan Murphy, might the SatC drama be viable subject matter for a future Feud season?)
