Sarah Jessica Parker Says There Will Be No ‘Sex and the City 3’


I'll believe it when I don't see it. But Sarah Jessica Parker told Extra that there will definitely not be a third "Sex and the City" movie.
“It’s over… we’re not doing it,” said the former Carrie Bradshaw. “I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
Hillary Clinton also said she wouldn't run for president again after losing the 2008 nomination. But after those first two SATC movie doozies, this is news I'm hoping is actually true. (I'm guessing Kim Cattrall is to thank.)


For those playing the home game, SJP and Kristin Davis are now 52, Kim Cattrall is 61 and Cynthia Nixon is 51. I remember hearing Dorothy saying she was "in her 50s" during one of the first episodes of "The Golden Girls." When the show premiered in 1985, Bea Arthur and Betty White were actually 63, Estelle Getty was only 62 and Rue McClanahan was 51, younger than all four SATC women are now.

5 Things About 'Will & Grace' 2.0


Did you watch "Will & Grace" last night? I thought it was a pretty seamless return -- Karen's "dream" was a fun nod to shows that have tried to rewrite their misguided history past, and I laughed out loud a couple of times, which bodes well for the future. Here are few thoughts:

1. The Trump stuff was well done, but I sure hope they got a big chunk of it out of their systems. The original run used to stick in little jabs at W and Cheney, but never built entire plots around the White House. I don't find what Trump & Co. are doing to people -- particularly of the LGBT ilk -- amusing, so I hope they use it sparingly.


2. Heard some snarky comments about how "old" everyone looked. (I think someone called Sean Hayes "Droopy Dog"?) I've often wondered what stars would look like if they just tried aging normally but then am reminded that the public expects actors not to -- even if they wind up with that Real Housewife look. (I thought they all looked fine, by the way.)


3. I love what they've done with the place(s). Go on a tour of all of the updated sets -- "The most important thing is just making it look like 12 years have passed" -- with Architectural Digest HERE.


4. My pal Brian Moylan ranked the post-"Will & Grace" careers of the actors for Vulture HERE. (If Shelley Morrison is still shoplifting, I'm guessing she's done the best financially.)


5. I'm SO GLAD Grace is divorcing Leo. He was not funny and ruined so much of the original series. Of course, the attempt at adding a new character this time -- Grace's assistant -- fell equally flat. Maybe the show is like a clique that we all think we're a part of and just don't want to let in anyone new.

P.S.


Owner David Cooley's viewing party at The Abbey in West Hollywood sure looked fun!
