While most of us who watched the horrendous second Sex And The City Movie did the happiest of happy dances when Kim Cattrall refused to do a third, I guess there still people Samantha Jones-ing (yuk yuk) for more. A few of the lesser cast members lost their collective shit over the chance for a check that wasn’t coming from a role in a commercial for arthritis medication. Fans have also been upset, and one point blank asked Sarah Jessica Parker to write Samantha off or replace her and still do the movie. SJP isn’t so convinced.
Recognizing that nobody wants to see just one Olsen twin, The Daily Mail says Sarah Jessica responded to a fan who blabbed on her Instagram:
“you are still my hero. Please replace or write her out kim/Samantha if she is not interested and bring back sex and the city movie #3. The fans need this.”
No, the fans don’t! Someone tell Kristin Davis to stop commenting on Sarah Jessica’s Instagram under a pseudonym! SJP replied, “not sure if I can imagine doing another movie without her.” Well, that’s certainly one way to push blame back at Kim and subtly say, “Who’s the power hungry bitch now??” Just to refresh your memory, there was a script ready to go for Sex And The City 3. SJP eventually said it wasn’t happening, and there was first reports that Kim refused to do the movie when Warner Brothers wouldn’t produce other shit she was working on.
Kim eventually went on Piers Morgan’s show to say she had a toxic relationship with the other gals and that she never wanted to do the movie. You would have thought maybe a détente would go down after SJP publicly offered up a condolence after Kim’s brother died, but Kim lashed out and said “You are not my friend.” Kristin seemed to agree when she posted a throwback Instagram during this year’s Emmys, and it was a photo of her with SJP and Cynthia Nixon sans Kim. Oooo, burn! I don’t know, maybe it’s for the best that SJP thinks she can’t go on without Kim in the franchise. Or, what’s most likely to have been what went down, the studio is the one who can’t imagine going on without Kim, so this franchise is – finally – as done as the rent control on Carrie Bradshaw’s old apartment.
