We're all mad Prince is dead, and I don't think he should have been part of the show. That just makes him one of the many SB halftime shows that were underwhelming.
Maybe, 100 years from now, Bushnell will be seen as one of the seminal authors capturing a heady time in American life like Fitzgerald, but I'm not sure that will be the case haha.
I think that it's very possible that SJP was a mean girl & got Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon on her side throughout the last few seasons, but I do think that NY Post article was gauche, especially since really no one else straight up came out and said who was holding up negotiations. I think everyone should let SATC die. Samantha might have been a caricature but honestly all those women seem like caricatures; the whole concept has aged terribly. I rewatched the series recently and I'm fucking embarrassed for them, and myself, because MY GOD were they all pretty awful.
But, at the same time, if it was all shitty and that's why Kim Cattrall never signed on again...I mean, apparently the money & work was enough to get through 6 seasons and 2 movies even though everyone was so horrible. If this is the breaking point, that's fine, but I think that after everything, the most dignified thing to do is ignore it. I know that there are a lot of 40-year-old SATC junkies on social media with too much time on their hands who want to harass the stars of the show, but, man, opening up another can of worms is just making it worse.
Never gonna feel a lot bad, though. #TeamJanet
There was a NY Post article last fall that was mostly anon-sourced that came out when SATC 3 talks apparently broke down that seemed to be completely taken from Kim or Kim-adjacent people, but who knows. I don't really like SJP* but it does seem like the real sour grapes are coming from Kim, or people who don't necessarily have anything to gain (like Willie Garson). I mean, I think he has something to gain from $$ from another movie, but I'm not sure why he'd go on record with some pointed shade if it weren't true.
That said, SATC 2 was a goddamn dumpster fire (and SATC the series & SATC: The Movie 1 haven't aged well at alllllllll), so I'm not sure I really care in the end. Except I am mad that she ended up with Big. (Whatever Baryshnikov's character's name was) was was terrible, but it was like they had him cleanse everyone's palate so that ending up with a game-playing dick was refreshing after watching the last season of SATC.
*there's just something unabashedly...fake? about her. But it seems her BLL costars liked her enough and I don't think she's notoriously mean? I feel like it's ok if the dynamic was just bad, and that's not exactly the fault of either woman.
I had a man read my tarot in Jackson Square in NOLA who was more specific.
(Really though. I guess boycotts of the other companies wouldn't be as effective because buying homes or genetic testing, or women's clothing, wouldn't be of interest to them because...ah, fuck, there are a lot of jokes here.)
