There are few things more juicy than a celebrity feud-- just ask FX and Ryan Murphy. Seeing two public figures come to blows is something that has long enthralled the public, and makes celebs more relatable and accessible. Recently TV and movie fans have watched as the drama unfolded over Sex and the City co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall. Cattrall's disinterest in returning as Samantha reportedly got the third SATC movie canned, and a feud was born. But now Parker has spoken up about the headlines, and maintains she's never had an issue with Cattrall. As Carrie herself tell it,
It looks like Sarah Jessica Parker is trying to distance herself from the growing narrative around she and Kim Cattrall. While the latter has openly attacked her former co-star on social media, Parker herself has kept pretty mum as the story continued to evolve.
While Sarah Jessica Parker hasn't attacked Kim Cattrall in the media, in some ways the story began with her. Parker revealed that there was a script ready for a third Sex and the City movie, but that the film didn't come to fruition without the full cast. In the wake of that announcement, other cast members like Willie Garson (aka Stanford) openly admonished Cattrall's decision, which also likely fueled the fire.
In her same conversation with Vulture, Sarah Jessica Parker also revealed how she doesn't want Kim Cattrall's decision to depart the franchise to take away from its legacy, saying:
While this spat won't stop the generations of Sex and the City fans from re-watching the show on syndication and through the first two movies, one has to wonder if the third film will ever get made. It just wouldn't be the same group without Samantha, so the producers and writers are going to have to go back to the drawing board in order to make a threequel happen.
