Thank God All My Children is no longer on the air because who would have the time to keep up with Erica Kane’s shenanigans when the cast of Sex And The City is pulling twice the drama with just as many episodes as a daytime soap?
As we know, Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed the third movie was a no-go, it quickly emerged it was all Kim Cattrall’s fault, and – I assume – Kim got thousands of Edible Arrangements in gratitude from fans who didn’t want to spend $20 to go see a movie that most likely would have been shit. Kim has been verbally tarred and feathered by Stanford Blatch (aka Willie Garson) all week, and she kept her verbal daggers for main cast members like SJP, who she added could have been nicer. Now sources have snitched to People about how Kim was negotiating to do the third film.
Kim said she didn’t want to do the movie because she’s just over it and wants to put Samantha to bed. Such a Samantha thing to say and do! But sources repeated what Willie Garson said about Kim being difficult.
“[She] was dragging her feet all summer and cast and crew members had put their lives on hold to get ready to shoot the movie. Then when she made outrageous demands, the studio had enough and pulled the plug. Her demand for them to buy her films in development and to give her a TV deal are what broke the camel’s back for them.”
Get back to the negotiating table! We need a Mannequin TV series immediately!
It seems like all of the “sources” have been anti-Kim, so it was nice to see someone at least try to speak up for her:
“She was willing to have a conversation, but she needed to hear something she hasn’t heard before — namely, that they would treat her character with some dignity and respect — and they wouldn’t even engage in that sort of discussion.”
The first movie saw Samantha pack on the pounds because she was eating to avoid cheating on her boyfriend. The second saw a menopausal Samantha get her hormones pills confiscated at the airport so she wandered into the dunes of the Middle East in a mammoth hot flash. Is it so hard to write a plot line where Samantha just hosts an upscale key party with all the couples in her Upper West Side co-op?! Kim did the right thing by saving us from this third movie. At the rate those writers were going, I have a feeling the “funny, heartbreaking…very relatable” script they had involved Samantha’s colostomy bag exploding on her at the state-run old folks home.
