We will always have Sex and The City to thank for the divine inspiration that led Michael to gift us with the moniker Rojo Caliente. For that I am thankful. But I, and I think many Americans, have successfully moved the fuck on. And late last year, the hookers of SATC seemed to have come to terms with the end of the road after Kim Cattrall said she couldn’t take it anymore and put the kibosh on a third installment of the movie franchise. I mean, they went down kicking and screaming and clawing each others eyes out, but it seemed like it was safe to toss the dirt on the coffin. Not so fast! Sarah Jessica Parker was on Ellen recently and made it sound as if SATC might have been buried alive.
Sarah expressed to Ellen DeGeneres how sad letting go of the paycheck, sorry, the show has made her. UsWeekly reports:
“I think there’s a period of grief, a mourning process,” Parker, 52, told DeGeneres when asked if there will be a third film. She then joked: “Perhaps we’ll be able to consider … say for instance, you playing Samantha.”
Do you think Sarah offers the role of Samantha to everybody she meets? Like is she at the market asking the checker if the bodega cat has any acting experience?
Ellen pressed Sarah about the possibility of a third movie since she so clearly is still in the “bargaining” stage of grief. Here’s Sarah’s anguished reply.
“I don’t know. Last week, I said ‘No.’ Reality is a brutal companion,” she told DeGeneres. “I feel like maybe, I don’t know. I have to make up an answer, because I have absolutely no idea. You know, who knows. Perhaps, we’ll find a way. Right now, I don’t know.”
Good lord, woman! Get to “acceptance” already and move on like the rest of us. Nobody wants to see the reanimated corpse of SATC staggering around the streets of New York lunging at buses and guzzling bottomless brain mimosas at brunch. Actually, on second thought…
You can watch the entire interview here. SATC talk starts at 3:45 if for some bizarre reason you don’t want to hear Sarah talk about her stubbed toe.
