By Cady Lang June 6, Lest the title suggest otherwise, Sex and the City was hardly just about the love affairs and bad dates of sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker and her gang of girlfriends: The cast members vocally denied any bad blood — and repeatedly called out the media for finding reasons to pit women against each other when the same is rarely done with men in the public eye.
But none of that stopped fans from speculating. Parker, Davis and Nixon are all seated next to each other.
Some fans notice the separation and wonder if there is a reason behind it. The piece suggests that there had been tension about pay since Season 2. She mentioned money and no one should vilify her for it.
It makes for juicy gossip and copy. The truth of us being friends and getting along and happily doing our jobs together is nowhere near as newsworthy. She is a born leader and she guides the crew and the cast in such a strong but gentle way.
She and I are sick of this. Parker points to the struggles of long days on set, but stresses that all is well between the cast. If it was going to happen, it would have happened by now. It would be a challenge to do a third installment. It could be fun though. To say goodbye completely to Samantha would be pretty hard. It was so strange to me and upsetting. We were all at liberty to walk away at any time!
But nobody asked those questions of shows with men. Disappointed for all crew holding on for negotiations to conclude for their jobs, and of course, for the fans. Leave it at that. This is about a clear decision, an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another. Dear fans, because I'm "toxic", I'm going to negotiate a contract for 6 months, not come to terms, then say I never wanted to do it anyway.
I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects. To be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous. She then jokes that DeGeneres might make a good replacement for Samantha.
Cattrall seemingly co-signs the suggestion on Twitter, although she later suggests two celebrated funny actors for the gig of future-Samantha. It was a professional experience, but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives.
That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with is such a privilege. Cattrall later thanks her fans, friends and her Sex and the City colleagues for their support during the difficult time.
So there was no fight; it was completely fabricated, because I actually never responded. March After Nixon announced her intention to run as a gubernatorial candidate in New York, Cattrall tweets her support with a seemingly pointed message.
