On February 1st, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott gave birth to a baby girl. Although we have anticipated Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy for a while now, her announcement dropped jaws and…
It was a ritual every Wednesday night over a glass of pinot grigio, you turned on your TV, sat back, and lived life through Carrie Bradshaw eyes. Comparing your best friends to Charlotte, Miranda, and NYC, biggest sex goddess, Samantha Jones. Never gone for too long; we were extremely happy when Sarah Jessica Parker stated, there was going to be a Sex and The City 3. When we heard the news, It was as if a weight came off of our shoulders, we didn’t have to find the answers out for ourselves anymore, Carrie was back in our lives and able to give us tips on how to juggle our career and relationship issues. Oh yea, and to share with us, how it feels to be a married woman. Is it everything we wish for, or is the single life where we want to be, better yet need to be?
Unexpectedly and most importantly, disappointingly Samantha stated (one of the worst news any SATC lover could ever hear,) in an interview with Piers Morgan, that there would be no Sex and The City 3. It was as if Samantha single-handedly ripped our hearts out. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, she also said “ we’ve never been friends, we’ve been colleagues, and in some ways that’s a very healthy place to be.” (Yes we get it, just like sports, and other entertainment business foundations, not everyone is there to be friends. Most people are actually there simply for the fame or check, but no way was the Sex and The City girls ever not really friends.) They were in the image of every group of girlfriends. Everything Carrie experienced I related to and my best friends shared the same connection with Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. It was as if Samantha just told me that the friendship I’ve built with my girls for the past 6 years was so unreal. Our friendship wasn’t true, and as many moments we laughed emotional convos we had, and unexplainable connections we’ve shared it wasn’t ours.
Samantha, the sex symbol. The leading lady that made us feel good about our bodies and confident that our passionate and provocative thoughts were okay, actually needed time to be the woman she truly wanted to be, a mother. In her interview, she expressed that becoming a mother was something she truly wanted. She stated that she even sought out to get IVF treatment, with her third husband, Mark Levinson in 1998. Although this was something she wanted, the timing was off and the filming and work schedule of SATC was too hectic. Kim Cattrall later discovered other ways to become a mother and mentor to young actresses in the business.
As a feminist, Samantha, better yet, Kim Cattrall, we understand and respect your decision as a woman. Although your comment took away from our fantasy and unreal image of being Carrie Bradshaw, we thank you for snapping us back into reality and truly finishing out our own fairytale story.
