Just this morning, Sarah Jessica Parker officially endorsed Cynthia Nixon for Governor of New York. It took her a minute to make her approval Instagram official, but she got there. SJP may still have beef with Kim Cattrall but it seems that Cynthia is A-OK in her book. Phew, Cynthia can move forward now that she’s secured the only endorsement that counts (suck it, Oprah. Don’t nobody need you here!).
Here’s SJP’s post.
According to Page Six, since Cynthia announced her candidacy over a week ago, people were wondering if maybe SJP was holding back some salty tears to go with her endorsement. After all, most of Cynthia’s other Sex And The City cast mates publicly said “I’m with her” by tweeting their support (well, Kim’s message was more like a pinched “sure”). Here’s what SJP had to say at that time:
Through her spokeswoman, Ina Treciokas, Parker said, “Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls. I look forward to talking to her about her New York state gubernatorial bid.”
Sorry, SJP, if you’re my friend (or even a casual acquaintance I like) and you announce a big thing like you’re running for Governor, I’m geeking the fuck out. I’m not friends with assholes, so I don’t need to hash it out and make you do a song and dance routine called What Imma Do For You, New York! in my private chambers before giving you a big Caesar thumbs up or down.
Maybe SJP gave Cynthia a tepid initial response because if she’s gonna be Governor of NY, she won’t ever be able to return as Zombie Miranda in a some future SATC abomination. Page Six says that HBO was worried that if SJP ghosted Cynthia it could hurt their SATC bottom line because people won’t want to watch reruns of a 20 year old show about girl power if they think the actors don’t like each other. Which is ridiculous because I watched all of True Blood and don’t believe in Werewolves. Although, vampires are real. Don’t @ me.
At any rate, SJP’s delayed response cleared the way for her endorsement to be the biggest, most meaningful and heartfelt one with the longest build up and the biggest payoff! Take that, Kim!
