In the world of pop culture, few things get more attention than a good old fashioned celebrity feud. Seeing celebs share their disdain for each other is actually refreshing, revealing a vulnerability that fans can relate to. They're so popular that Ryan Murphy's acclaimed anthology series Feud was built on the concept. One feud that's been gaining more and more attention over the past few months was the one between Kim Cattrall and her Sex and the City co-stars, especially Sarah Jessica Parker. Things have only intensified since Cattrall tragically lost her brother Christopher a few days ago. Apparently SJP reached out to Cattrall, which was the opposite of what the actress wanted. Cattrall wrote a scathing Instagram post about the situation, saying:
My Mom asked me today 'When will that Sarah Jessica Parker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?' Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven't already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona.
Wowza. The post, which accompanies an image saying "I don't need your love or support at this tragic time", really broke down any walls of privacy between the two actresses and the public. We know exactly how Kim Cattrall feels about Parker, and exactly why she's currently so pissed off at her onscreen BFF.
It Kim Cattrall's Instagram post is any indication, it seems that Sarah Jessica Parker may have sent Cattrall some type of message in the wake of her brother's death. But considering what shaky ground the two were already on, Cattrall found this insulting. The dueling divas had recently gone across multiple platforms to deliver jabs at each other, and now things have escalated.
The ongoing feud between Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall caught the public's attention a few months ago. Plans were in motion for a third Sex and the City movie to be produced, with SJP and the other women having a script they seemed truly passionate about. But Kim Cattrall was not so excited, and decided to pass on the deal to reprise her role as Samantha Jones. Parker and other Sex and the City stars indicated how disappointed they were with this decision, with Cattrall having to come to her own defense. She simply didn't want to play the role any longer, and even suggested they simply recast the role for a potential film.
Kim Cattrall is no doubt grappling with the loss of her brother Christopher, so we can probably all give her pass for lashing out on social media. Although I'm not sure that Sarah Jessica Parker would feel the same.
