The year-old actress - who has previously admitted she had a "toxic" relationship with her co-stars - has quashed speculation she may appear in a third film in the franchise, insisting there is no chance. Asked if she would do another Sex and the City film, she replied: "Never. It's a no from me.
Back inwe would sit in front of an extremely cumbersome television at the appointed time to be pleasantly scandalised by the exploits of the Sex and the City girls. Last week, women everywhere grabbed the popcorn and watched as the cast went to war over the third film - or lack thereof. This time, the scandal played out online - and for real.
It has been exactly 20 years since Sex and the City first premiered on HBO and instantly pushed cosmos, Post-it note break-ups, and Mr. Big into the cultural lexicon, and affection for the groundbreaking series has yet to diminish. The Sarah Jessica Parker-starring show offered a fresh, funny, and very frisky look inside the lives of four very different New York City gals.
If beauty is in the details, then the attention paid to every item — from the stilettos to the names on the credit cards — made this City a stunner. The real Big Apple Carrie had many a musing on this laptop about life, love, and the pursuit of sex. Today, the Mac, a real working computer, is part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian museum in D.
Sex and the City was a progressive piece of television, for its time. The cosmopolitan-drinking girls introduced frank depictions of female sexuality and something singledom to the mainstream. There have been a lot of conversations centered on how to address the more problematic aspects of cultural gems lately.

We're on their trail, and we've got many fresh leads to chase down — please support our work. Unlike everyone else, I don't hate Sex and the City 2. Forget about low or no expectations, I was blissfully unaware of what expectations it might have been appropriate to have.
And we need one. But today, the taboo-smashing Samantha might be polyamorous, pansexual and gender queer. Today, Miranda would still be fighting that battle—but as a black woman in the workforce.
Single thirtysomething or fortysomething ladies date lots and lots of men and one woman and go through every possible dating foible out there. While earlier seasons had a Guy of the Week set-up and dating drove the plots, the later ones were considerably more character-based and focused on their respective long-term relationships. While mostly episodic, there were several story arcs.
W e've been thinking it for two long years. All of us. Gnawing our cheeks at night, clutching at sweaty sheets, our faces hollow and gray, our once-bright eyes dimmed by the pain of too many questions. Sometimes we cry out, en masse, to a faceless god and a cold, indifferent universe that holds its secrets close.
