The future is looking celibate for the Sex And The City franchise after Kim Cattrall took to Instagram to confirm what we’ve long believed to be true – she and Sarah Jessica Parker are not friends.
Unlike their characters, Samantha and Carrie respectively, Cattrall and Parker have long been at odds. However, things came to a head following the untimely death of Cattrall’s younger brother, Chris.
Earlier this week, Parker spoke to Extra about his passing, saying, “I can’t begin to know how her family is managing such a loss. We all send her our love and condolences and grant her the privacy that she’s asked for.”
Cattrall took to Instagram to thank fans, friends, and her SatC colleagues for their condolences. She followed this up with a separate post, in which she called out Parker for her insincerity.
After labelling Parker a “hypocrite,” Cattrall goes on to say:
“You are not my family. You are not my friend.”
She also included a link to a New York Post article from October 2017 called, Inside the mean-girls culture that destroyed ‘Sex and the City’. The article detailed the reason behind Cattrall’s refusal to do a third movie (she was labelled a “diva” for saying no), the clique formed by Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon that often left her out, salary disparities, and what Cattrall describes as “toxic relationships.”
In an earlier interview with Piers Morgan, Cattrall said, “The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over. Sarah Jessica, she could have been nicer, she could have in some way. I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.”
Parker is yet to respond, but Cattrall’s post has finally given fans the confirmation they have long been waiting for.
In the meantime, we’ll be rewatching old episodes of SatC and pretending like everything is okay.
