Just days after the tragic death of her brother Chris, Kim Cattrall has lashed out at Sarah Jessica Parker on social media, calling her “cruel”.
In an Instagram post, the Sex and the City actress said, ‘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’.’
Alongside her post, Kim shared a link to a New York Post article detailing Sarah Jessica Parker’s alleged ‘mean girl’ behaviour on the set of Sex and the City. It suggests that a lot of the problems between the two women were down to ‘jealousy, rivalry and money’.
The article says that from very early on, Kim was a ‘scene stealer’, and this made things awkward since Sarah Jessica was supposed to be the lead.
A ‘clique’ between the other cast members formed, and it got so bad that Kim was not invited to stay with the rest of the girls in a house rented by Sarah Jessica while they were shooting the TV show.
It’s fair to say that Kim’s Instagram post is not the first proof of the pair’s frosty relationship.
In an interview with Piers Morgan in 2017, Kim said of her fellow Sex and the City cast, “We’ve never been friends, we’ve been colleagues. The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over.”
She then singled Sarah Jessica out, suggesting that their issues went much further than just indifference, “Sarah Jessica, she could have been nicer, she could have in some way. I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.”
She also said she turned down a third film, elaborating, “This is what my 60s are about. They’re about me making decisions for me. Not my career, for me. And that feels frickin’ fantastic.”
In an interview on Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked how Sarah Jessica felt about Kim’s first comment that they were never friends,
“Just heartbroken…I found it very upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience.”
While Sarah Jessica has not yet responded to Kim’s latest accusations, it’s fair to say that fans on had a lot to say about it on Twitter.
Some were on Sarah Jessica’s side…
Some were on Kim’s side…
And some were just sad to see their two favourites fighting!
One thing’s for sure, we don’t know whether we’ll be able to watch the SATC series and movies in the same way again…
