Or maybe I should say he was on a “hide-atus,” since it’s not exactly like he was taking a social media break just to reset his batteries and come back with a fresh outlook on life. Chris Noth was metaphorically hiding out after being accused of sexual assault. He pulled back from the spotlight, which is usually a smart thing to do if one finds themselves in the kind of situation that involves a potential police investigation. But Chris is done hiding. Much like that famous groundhog, Chris Noth decided to poke his head out of his hidey-hole and remind everyone that he’s still around. Except instead of predicting the arrival of spring, his return signals that it’s probably time for his publicist to start stocking up on headache pills again.
Chris Noth was dropped from his talent agency, cut from the show The Equalizer, and may be headed for divorce after four women came forward with sexual assault allegations against him. HBO Max sort of lucked out by killing off his character, Mr. Big, via a Peloton-induced heart attack in the series premiere of the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That…. But they also filmed another scene with Chris and Sarah Jessica Parker for the show’s season finale. But now that Chris Noth is known as alleged rapist Chris Noth, his scenes in the finale will not make it to air. And without Kim Cattrall‘s Samantha, truthfully, the whole series should never have made it to air either!
Some Sex and the City purists might argue that HBO’s revival, And Just Like That…, isn’t worth a damn without Samantha Jones, and others might suggest it’s a confusing mess of a million questionable storylines and horrible costumes. But the premiere of And Just Like That… gave HBO Max its strongest series debut when it dropped earlier this month, and there have been rumors that it won’t be a one-season series. So it’s not stretching your imagination too hard to picture a second season. But according to a source who spoke with Us Weekly, the whole situation with Chris Noth has kind of caused everyone to hit the brakes on talk of Season 2.
Previously, Chris Noth has been accused of sexual assault by three women in 2004, 2010, and 2015. The accusations got him dropped from his talent agency and the show The Equalizer, and his wife Tara Wilson may be thinking about dropping him too. There’s a new accusation and it’s been brought to us by Gloria Allred who represents the newest alleged victim coming forward, singer Lisa Gentile, who claims Chris attacked her back in 2002.
After being accused by three women of sexual assault, 67-year-old Chris Noth hasn’t just been dropped by his talent agency and his TV show, The Equalizer, his marriage is reportedly a mess too. Chris’ wife of 9 years, 42-year-old Tara Wilson, has been seen without her wedding ring, and while she isn’t getting photographed outside of a lawyer’s office holding prop divorce notes, she could get there soon as a source tells Page Six that the marriage to Chris is currently “hanging by a thread.” And Just Like That… his marriage unraveled.
Chris Noth Has Been Dropped From “The Equalizer,” While The Cast Of “And Just Like That…” Releases A Statement
I probably could have killed two birds with one stone by writing, “And Just Like That…Chris Noth isn’t getting a CBS check anymore.” And it would fit since we’re getting almost daily updates on the swift career downfall of Chris Noth in the wake of some very serious sexual assault allegations. Chris Noth doesn’t seem to be doing much better, work-wise, because his regular gig on The Equalizer has vanished. Some people might be saying, “Who cares about a show I was never going to watch – what does Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte have to say about this situation?“. Well, Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte issued a joint statement on the matter, and they’re standing in solidarity with the women who have come forward to tell their stories.
