Sex and the City feud ‘a catfight of one’
ANDY Cohen just doesn't understand the drama going on between Kim Cattrall and his close pal Sarah Jessica Parker.
"I thought it was fake," Cohen said on his radio show Radio Andy this week. "I was like, there was no way Kim Cattrall has posted this on her Instagram. This is a woman who's in the middle of grieving the loss of her brother."
After Cattrall announced on Feb. 4 via Instagram that her brother had passed away, her "Sex and the City" co-stars Parker and Cynthia Nixon expressed their condolences in the comments section, with Parker writing: "Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother." Afterwards, Cattrall thanked her "SATC" family for their support.
However, come Saturday, Cattrall changed her tune and blasted Parker, declaring on social media, "https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/news/boy-7-fights-for-life-after-falling-three-floors-f/3333828/
Cohen was still confused by Cattrall's outburst come Monday.
She accused SJP of exploiting a tragedy ... I was thinking about it over the weekend. She follows Kim on Instagram. Kim posted about her brother dying. She expressed her condolences, posted in a comment. Said something like 'My heart goes out to you and your family at this time' - one line, that's it.
"I would not call that exploiting a tragedy," Cohen said. "What was she supposed to do? Say something bad? I don't understand."
"'For the last and final time' - [Cattrall] made it sound like maybe [Parker] said something privately? Maybe she'd sent flowers or something?" Cohen's radio co-host asked.
"Oh, how offensive is that?' Cohen scoffed. "I don't get it."
"I also don't like it that people are characterising this as a catfight. There's only one person fighting here," he continued.
"Sarah's only said the nicest things about her. The same thing with the movie - the only thing she's ever commented about the movie and about Kim not wanting to do the movie was that she was disappointed the studio pulled the plug on it. I don't get it: It's a catfight of one, from where I see it."
Although rumours of a feud between the Sex and the City co-stars swirled for years, the quarrel resurfaced once it was confirmed there wouldn't be a third Sex and the City movie.
"This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City, specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, is that I think she could've been nicer," Cattrall said in October. "I really think she could have been nicer."
