Feud Ex­plodes

The bad blood be­tween Sarah Jes­sica Parker and Kim Cat­trall boils over

Life & Style Weekly - - The Week’s Hottest Stories -

The Sex and the City bat­tle gets even nas­tier as Kim Cat­trall speaks out against her for­mer co-stars.

Sarah Jes­sica Parker wanted to be clear: Ru­mors of squab­bles among the Sex and the City cast were al­ways non­sense. “These were my sis­ters,” she said last year. “This is a fam­ily of peo­ple who…re­lied upon each other and loved each other.”

Now the real story is com­ing out. In re­cent weeks, a feud be­tween Kim Cat­trall and her SATC co-stars has ex­ploded into pub­lic view, and it’s get­ting nas­tier ev­ery day, with Kim lash­ing out and claim­ing she was never friends with her co-stars. “The other women are hurt and be­trayed,” an SATC in­sider tells Life & Style. “Kim and Sarah haven’t got­ten along from day one, but they faked fond­ness for each other in the past. Clearly Kim is done play­ing nice.”

That’s an un­der­state­ment. In a re­cent in­ter­view with Piers Mor­gan, Kim, 61, said the se­ries was the only bond she had with SJP, 52, Cyn­thia Nixon, 51, and Kristin Davis, 52. “They all have chil­dren and I am 10 years older,” she noted, claim­ing one of the rea­sons she didn’t have kids her­self was be­cause the SATC sched­ule pre­vented her from do­ing IVF. Say­ing she hadn’t spo­ken to them in years, she called it “really dis­ap­point­ing” that they never even call to ask how she’s do­ing, adding, “It feels like a toxic re­la­tion­ship.”

SHE SAID, SHE SAID

Kim’s at­tacks were a di­rect re­sponse to SJP’S an- nounce­ment that a third SATC movie was dead. A re­port claimed the film was just days from film­ing when Kim’s diva de­mands got it shut down. Kim, who claims she ac­tu­ally turned the movie down nearly a year ago, felt SJP was spread­ing the story. “To get any kind of neg­a­tive press…that I’m de­mand­ing or a diva, this is really where I take to task the peo­ple from Sex and the City and specif­i­cally Sarah Jes­sica Parker,” she said. “I really think she could have

been nicer. I don’t know what her is­sue is.” Her is­sue, the in­sider claims, is that Kim really was be­ing a diva. “Sarah hates the games that Kim played,” the in­sider says, “and ap­par­ently is still play­ing.”

With the movie fran­chise DOA, Kim no longer sees a need to pre­tend the SATC ladies are off­screen besties. Even in the early days of the se­ries in the 1990s, “Kim and Sarah were al­ways icy,” the in­sider re­veals. In any dis­agree­ments, Cyn­thia and Kristin took Sarah’s side, and by the time the movies were filmed, “Kim was al­ways by her­self be­tween takes,” says a source who vis­ited the sets. “She was never with the other women.”

With Kim’s bru­tal in­ter­view, any chance of putting their rift be­hind them is slim. “Sarah doesn’t ap­pre­ci­ate drama,” says the in­sider. She, Cyn­thia and Kristin “are very an­gry. They may never speak to Kim again.”
