If you haven’t spent one second with The Carrot Diaries, then consider yourself one of the lucky ones, because I suffered through 3 episodes for the music alone until I realized that I can listen to the same damn music on my iTunes and I don’t have to look at AnnaSophia Robb’s $2 thirsty wig of curly polyester nightmares while doing so. The Scary Diaries is like a Disney Channel-like period piece (that has double meaning) for fetuses who didn’t live through the 80s and I am way too old for that mess. (Cut to me later tonight when I’m puffing on my vaporizer while watching Jessie on the Disney Channel.) The original TV Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker, pretty much feels the same way. Net-A-Porter Magazine (via UsWeekly) asked SJP how she feels about some girl playing Carrie Bradshaw and she said that it’s odd.
How does she feel about another actress playing the role she so definitively brought to life? “I’m not sure… You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity. She [AnnaSophia Robb] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about it, but it’s… odd.”
My mom was talking about The Carrot Diaries the other day and I don’t think she really knows that it’s about young Carrie Bradshaw, because she asked, “Why didn’t they get Sarah Janica to play Katie Bradshaw?” (FYI: Sarah Janica and Katie Bradshaw in mom talk mean Sarah Jessica and Carrie Bradshaw) My mom has a point and she could be a TV executive and a TV casting director. Because if Sarah Janica’s Iggy Pop looking ass played a 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw, I’d totally watch the hell out of that. A drop of some Strangers with Candy shit is definitely what is missing from The Scary Diaries.
And SJP also told Net-A-Porter that she’s done with wearing platform horse shoes off camera, because they mangled her hooves:
“For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained. But then I did I Don’t Know How She Does It, and I was very thoughtful about my whole wardrobe and said, you know, [Kate Reddy] could not afford really good footwear. So I got [lower priced] shoes and the bottoms weren’t leather, they were plastic, so I slipped a couple times, twisted my ankle.
I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there… You’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there.’ The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost. It’s sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, ‘You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop – and don’t put cheap shoes on us?'”
So many farrier jokes, so little time.
And here’s SJP stomping on the snow with her twins and nanny in NYC this morning.
