From the other thread:

[quote]Candace Bushnell's husband dumped her for a young ballerina. The funny hing is, she is very pretty, in a blonde, WASP-y way. More of a Charlotte than a Carrie.

Candace Bushnell, like Charlotte, is a pretty WASP. That is where the similarities end. Bushnell was a wild party girl who did coke in the 80's. More Samantha/Carrie, very un-Charlotte. Bushnell questioned the institution of marriage and never wanted kids. Charlotte wanted the old-fashioned marriage & children "happy ending." Candace was never about any of that. Carrie wanted LOVE, but not children, and also questioned traditional marriage.

This gorgeous stud Kohl Sudduth plays the hot young chef Samantha enjoyed in the first season. He put her off young guys as he made her feel old by commenting on the folds in her neck that gave her character!

Continuing the discussion from the other thread - Petrovsky was supposed to purposely slap Carrie across the face during their argument. It was scripted and discussed but when it came time to shoot those scenes Baryshnikov refused to play it, resulting in the half-assed slap we saw onscreen.

That "slap" and Big's cartoonish reaction have got to be the weakest point of the whole series. If it was accidental, why did she make any kind of a deal out of it? Shit happens, no biggie.

And since the episode did make it clear that it was accidental - no matter what the original intention of the scriptwriters was - it makes no sense for her to break a relationship over it and to whine to EVERYONE about it, across continents.

And it makes Big's Superman bravado that much phonier and more meaningless.

Isn't Brian Callan tied to Joe Rogan somehow. I remember hearing him on Maron years ago and he was obsessed with manliness and masculinity - just came off as massively insecure and that's why he's hateful.

I was under the impression that Petrovsky bought most of the clothes for Carrie.

Sexually the best line for me was Samantha telling to Carrie, who else, how no-one will stop her giving guys oral sex. She has and will give it to who when and where ever she likes. Jason was hot as Smith but Samantha would never have settled for one cock. She loved cocks and fucking. Smith could have been her regular but she would have had fuck buddies on the side.

by Anonymousreply 2809/13/2020

I don't think Samantha was incapable of having a monogamous relationship. It wouldn't last a lifetime though. She sure got pissed when she caught Richard cheating. In the movie, Carrie opines when Samantha breaks up with Jared that some love affairs don't last a lifetime but they are just as sweet.

I think Samantha would have settled down eventually with some age appropriate old fart after she went through menopause and her cooter dried up.

Samantha had all she could have wanted with Jerry Jerrod/Smith Jerrod; he was hot, young, great in the sack, devoted as a beagle, and thanks to her efforts successful and famous. It lasted about four years before Sam called it quits as monogamy just wasn't her thing; poor sad old skank that she was simply didn't know what she had until it was gone.

You can see why Kim Cattrall wants nothing more to do with SATC franchise. She was getting too old (and quite frankly heavy) to be playing a lose tart.

As has been said, prissy Charlotte was actually less uptight about sex than Carrie.

I'll add her Jewish artist, guy who was on meds and couldn't get it up, and her handyman who she started fucking.

by Anonymousreply 4309/13/2020

R38, agreed, and Cattrall has said as much in interviews I've seen, mentioning that she felt she had played the character as far as she could go, and even beyond what she should have. If those leaks about the third movie are to be believed, her plot line in that movie was going to revolve around Samantha sexting Miranda's son, Brady. You can see why she had no interest in being involved.

by Anonymousreply 4409/13/2020

[R44] LOL I hadn't heard that - so they were gonna have Samantha horn dog the kid of one of her friends? Just when I didn't think it could get worse than the second movie, it does. The only story detail I'd heard was Big dying early on and the aftermath for Carrie being the core of the film.

About Berger, the most cringe-worthy scene was in the Hamptons where they're at a road stop eating and he comes by (badly) on his motorcycle. Carrie accidentally gets ketchup on her face, which at first is a dollop next to her lip, but in the next frame grows to half her chin. There SJP is, trying to act coy while daintily sticking her tongue out to get at it. As if anything less than a good shower would have done at that point.

by Anonymousreply 4509/13/2020

When we did the tour a few years back, one of the facts they told us was that during the show's run Charlotte had actually the highest number of different men she'd fucked than any of the other women.

by Anonymousreply 4609/13/2020

SJP always had these cringey mannerisms as Carrie, just like R45 says. One that sticks out in my mind is where she is writing her column in front of a mirror. While the voiceover takes place("I couldn't help but wonder..."), she picks up a cocktail next to her, turns her head and drinks it in profile and then smirks at the glass, all pleased with herself. Who behaves like that?

by Anonymousreply 4709/13/2020

That would have been a disgusting low, even for Samantha; no wonder Ms. Cattrall said "so long, and don't call me; I'll call you...."

A nearly sixty Samantha going after Miranda's son would have been not just disgusting but pathetic. Yeah, when Patsy Stone goes after Saffy's school mate "Daniel" it's a bit of a laff because running joke is Patsy has always been the local bike, and even at fifty lusting after a teenage boy is something old slags do.

by Anonymousreply 4809/13/2020

Ms. Cattrall 's character should have ended with her and Smith Jerrod getting married and living happily ever after. Unlike real life couple Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore , SJ was truly in love with Samantha despite differences in age, her skanky past (and habits), etc...

by Anonymousreply 4909/13/2020

I managed to find the episode I was talking about with the cringey mannerisms, and it's "The Big Journey", the one where Carrie and Samantha catch a train to San Francisco. As I was looking into it, I realised that this is also that episode where Carrie is really horny, and... well, I'll let her put it in her own words:

"Guys, I need to have sex. It's been too long. Lately, I've been having these dreams where I run - I RUN - up to complete strangers and just start KISSING them."

Whoa, that Carrie sure has some wild, sexy dreams!

There are pictures out there of Demi Moore out at some club/bar being mutton dressed as lamb with then husband Aston K. DM had on a short skirt and was sitting with legs crossed; you could see her upper thigh area was same as SJP pictured above. Totally nasty IMHO for a younger guy who could nail tons of young girls if he wanted, (and AK could).

All older women fight same main enemies; upper arms, behinds, upper thighs, flabby upper pubic area, and maybe hands along with throat. Then there is the ever long battle against crepey skin

Surgery and or exercise can help with somethings, but sooner or later for much else nature is going to do what it wants to do. There is nothing more gross than some 60 year old plus aged granny running around streets of Manhattan wearing yoga pants with nothing to cover her behind. Grown men have blanched at the sight....

For all above situations women who suffer worse are those who've spent much of their lives trying to remain rail thin. I know people who have seen Tina Louise at gym in leotard and tights; it isn't a pretty sight......

Only to a man who is 70 or 80. Maybe to a fifty year old guy who likes his women a bit ripe.

by Anonymousreply 5509/13/2020

The storyline I heard about Samantha in the third movie is that a 14-year-old Brady was sexting her, not that she was into him. But also KC has talked about not enjoying her time on set with the other three, and she had issues with SJP being paid more than everyone else when all of them were equally necessary.

I think the show did a disservice to itself and the world by not taking its influence seriously enough. The writers knew that Carrie was supposed to be an anti-hero but made her various character flaws feel acceptable (nobody called her out on it, etc). She became the idol of many young people when it aired. Today you can read tons of retrospectives where the authors say "now that I'm more mature, I can see that Carrie was awful." It would have been less vacuous TV if they hadn't danced around that topic.

by Anonymousreply 5609/13/2020

As far as SJP looks, she's always had a great body. On the show she was confident, I think that's the reason she attracted a lot of guys. Miranda, on the other hand, attracting any man was a mystery.

R56, I'm one of those people. As a fully grown adult watching in reruns, I found them all pretty insufferable and didn't like the show as much. Carrie was called out a time or two. I think she was called out once when she whined and whined about her man troubles and Miranda finally told her it's always about her.

by Anonymousreply 5709/13/2020

One thing I couldn't stand was Carrie's constant, inconsiderate smoking. All her clothes in that one room apartment of hers must have reeked of cigarettes. She smoked in a cab with the three of them in the back, plus the driver, wow! She tried to smoke at the Park Ave party.

I would have loved it if she had smoked at the lunch where she ambushed Natasha, in addition to drinking from her glass.

by Anonymousreply 5809/13/2020

Ha! R57, that first paragraph reminds me of a moment in one of the episodes:

Miranda: Sexy is the thing I try to get [men] to see me as after I win them over with my personality.

Carrie: You win men over with your personality?

Miranda: They want you to be a model?

I agree with the second part of your post too. I was amazed when trying to rewatch this last year how insufferable they are, and also how bad the show is in general.

Carrie also gets called out somewhat in that episode about the "Face Girl" because she won't shut up about it and all her friends are sick of hearing about it. But she doesn't really ever have to face how annoying and selfish she's being, it's really just played for humour. And of course, when Stanford finally gets her to realise that he'd like her to listen to him, she doesn't have to for long because Nina Katz just happens to be walking towards her, accompanied by Heather Graham who's about to demonstrate of the worst acting I've ever seen her do, and that's saying something!

R23 - funny enough, I always assumed that Bryan Callen and Joe Rogan were related to one another. I have no clue why, but I always put them in the same "bucket" for whatever reason. Rogan used to be a hot snack size pre-RWNJ politics and weight gain. Callen has been far more successful as actor - from MADtv to The Goldbergs and tons of movies including 2 of the "Hangover" series. IMO, Bryan is incredibly sexy and seems like he'd be great bottom material - at least in my fantasies anyway.

Now that story line could believe; a teenage boy sexting an older woman known to be a skank and up for anything is plausible. Brady would have grown up over hearing his parents and their friends talk about Samantha. Agree that Samantha wouldn't be interested; loving sex and being an easy lay is one thing; breaking in young boys is another. Not every woman wants to be or can pull off being Mrs. Robinson...

by Anonymousreply 6309/13/2020

Samantha would probably also not be interested after her experience that time when she decided to take that boy's virginity and he started stalking her (the one who was also called Sam Jones).

I posted above about this. Drove me crazy too and I'm an ex-smoker who would never have been that inconsiderate to other people. She never asked anyone "hey, do you mind?"

I love how in that clip she has the voice over about being her own critic, but isn't critical of herself over what's way more important. Being a good friend and actually listening to people.

Haha, me too! She isn't even embarrassed in the slightest that she is getting called out for gossiping. Her expression is hilarious. Of course by the end Carrie twists everything to be a moral about: "someone somewhere could be making a face about you but it's the reviews you give yourself that matter"... nice self-justificaton of your terrible behaviour there, Carrie. You don't have to treat other people well, and you can be as selfish as you want, provided you tell yourself you're fabulous, I guess. Now I'm wondering if it was this episode in particular that is responsible for similar behaviour I've seen amongst certain women I've met.

One of the (many) things I thought so dumb about the second movie was the way they tried to make a point over repressive cultures overseas by showing Samantha get arrested for having sex in public in Abu Dhabi, and then followed that by her having sex in public in the US with fireworks above her and no consequences - as though any American police officer who happened to pass by there wouldn't also have arrested her for public indecency!

Apart from Heather Graham having heard of her, neither Nina's friend in the bathroom where she first made the face, nor the friend she had lunch with (the one who looked like a poor man's Helen Mirren) knew anything about Carrie's reputation, and the second woman actually worked with Carrie. It was more Samantha telling Carrie that Nina "loves to talk" which caused Carrie to conclude that Nina was talking about her "all over SNL".

It's interesting R82, I mean, I understand some of it was done for comic reasons, but the women really did dump some of their boyfriends over nothing and then stayed with other men with much bigger problems.

That's not at all true. I recently re-watched the episode and all three women Nina Katz is with react as though they've been told the story of how shitty Carrie was to Aidan and what a mess he was. Even the first woman in the ladies room when you're meant to just notice Nina's expression reacts as though she's been told the story. I rarely side with Carrie, but on this one, she's pretty much on point.

R93, that comment of hers still cracks me up!

To be fair R85, what you say is only half right. I give you that the first woman does look up in surprise when Nina says: "You're Carrie Bradshaw!" so it seems she does know. But the second woman absolutely doesn't. She asks them both: "And how do you two know each other?" and Nina responds: "I'll tell you over lunch". I don't think anyone would deny Nina was a gossipy bitch, but R86 is right - Carrie's issue was other people knowing what a cunt she (Carrie) was. She didn't really care about whether Aiden was messed up by her or not, just that other people had negative feelings towards her. She's so typical of that type of person who wants everyone to think she's a lovely person, but doesn't actually want to BE a lovely person, and is affronted by others not kowtowing to this version of herself.

I love the ideas for a Nina cameo in the second movie, would've made it more bearable! Hahaha at 'The Face' going global!

Just to add, I love that that second woman mentioned above still casts shade at Carrie:

Carrie: We work together at Vogue.

Woman: Hardly. She gets to run in and out once a month while I'm chained to the hem of Anna Wintour!

It's interesting isn't it? Carrie gets a diaphragm stuck up her cunt and Samantha steels herself and heads into the bathroom to help Carrie fish it out.

In return, Carrie whines and whinges and carries on when Samantha asks for advice on what to do about a mishap with dying her pubic hair. And then plotzes when Samantha shows her her pubes.

That scene bugs me so much just because of Carrie screeching and shaking her head and looking pained. Some friend Carrie is.

Yeah, the show actually made a really recognisable character in Carrie - just not in the way they thought, haha. I think a big reason why Carrie is so disliked is definitely due to people being able to say: "I KNOW this type of woman".

I'm sure that, as someone upthread said, the writers had a field day deliberately inserting multiple examples of Carrie's cuntiness behind SJP's oblivious producer back.

I bet they hated her. Any stories about Producer SJP being a cunt on set?

by Anonymousreply 10909/16/2020

The only story I have heard myself is the one Bradley Cooper told on the Graham Norton Show. He said that SJP used to send intermediaries to him to tell him how to act with her. Like, if they did a kissing scene and she didn't like his kissing, she would tell someone else to come and tell him that. He thought it was bizarre, and then someone else on the couch (Rob Lowe?) mentioned that that was his experience with SJP too.

Ummm, that's how you're supposed to do it if you're an actor. You talk to the A.D. or 2nd A.D. who talks to the director (or you can go straight to the director yourself and discuss what the problem is). That's the hierarchy on a set. SJP did nothing wrong by not going to Bradley Cooper herself.

by Anonymousreply 11309/16/2020

Love her or hate her, the truth is that SJP is a class act on set. She is very good to the crew, knows people’s names and looks out for their general well being. She brings a whole “we’re in this together” vibe to set and she really sets the tone. I think it stems from her being a child actor. She comes by it honestly.

Was that scene at Dolce & Gabbana (the year everything was trimmed, ridiculously, with pastel marabou) from the first season? Because Carrie breaks the fourth wall, talking directly to the camera.

It was very weird to call the person she is hugging "Eurotrash" to the camera while she's an inch from her ear. And it was pretty fucking rude and ungrateful since she had just allowed that person (someone she admits to not really knowing well) to buy her an expensive pair of shoes Carrie couldn't afford because of her bad credit.

From Forbes:

Bangkok Is The Most Visited City In The World...Again

Welcoming around 22.7 million international visitors, Bangkok ranked as the top destination for global travelers this year, according to Mastercard‘s 2019 Global Destination Cities Index.

The commendation is a repeat for the Thai capital, as it was named the world’s most visited city for the past four years.

Following Bangkok, Paris (19.10 million) came as a close second, with London (19.01 million), Dubai (15.93 million) and Singapore (14.67 million) rounding out the top five most visited cities in the world in 2018. Mastercard’s annual list looks at visitor volume and spend at the 200 largest cities in the world, counting both vacation and business travelers in the previous year.

New York, the only city in the Americas to crack the top 20 global destinations list, ranked at seven with 13.6 million.

According to MasterCard, cities in the Asia-Pacific region have seen the most growth in international visitors since 2009, growing 9.4%.

Dubai was named as the top city for international visitor spending globally at $30.82 billion. With the average traveler to Dubai spending three and a half nights in the emirate, that translates to a whopping $553 per night. Mecca was named second ($20.09 million) while Bangkok ($20.03 million) ranked third.

The top ten cities for international visitors in 2017 is below. The full list, and breakouts, are available here:

2018 International Overnight Visitors Bangkok 22.78 million Paris 19.10 million London 19.09 million Dubai 15.93 million Singapore 14.67 million Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 13.79 million New York 13.60 million Istanbul 13.40 million Tokyo 12.93 million Antalya, Turkey 12.41 million

Most people are terrified of having to rely on the kindness of strangers when they are old and in need of assistance for even getting up from the couch. That's why some people want to settle down later in life with someone and have some nice years that create a tight bond between them, so the other one is not going to leave when it gets tough. Seniors having alternative options, which look better than taking care of a longtime partner, makes it tricky.

Shows like Sex and the City, Friends et al can't help but look really odd after you've been there.

She didn't try to justify it because she knew that it's not really justifiable.

Another weird moment in this show just popped into my head. How about that episode where Alexsandr is trying to woo Carrie with old-fashioned romance and he's playing a song for her on the piano? She's watching him from across the room, and he asks her to come sit next to him. This odd moment occurs where Carrie takes a few steps towards the piano, suddenly turns back, gasping: "Oh, the berries!" and grabs a bowl of raspberries and cream, then returns to the piano. It totally comes across like SJP forgot she was meant to bring the bowl with her, but they didn't have time to reshoot.

And then, well, if you struggle with Carrie eating the grape in Paris, check out her attempting to eat the raspberry here. Struggling briefly to get it into her mouth, making sure there is enough cream left on her lips to be kissed off.... and she had the nerve to say afterwards that what [italic]he[/italic] was doing was "ick".

Speaking of the Hamptons episode, do we think Carrie is a total cunt in regards to aging gay Bobby Fine when he gets married to Mitzy. All she does is crack bitchy jokes from the time she learns of the pairing; really bitchy. But wouldn't a lot of us do the same thing? Or would we "get" the marriage for companionship and friendship. Or, even if us queens made bitchy jokes, was it still out of pocket for Carrie to do so? Geesh, I forgot how much more grating and squealing she is in season 5 - "A SCHRUUUUUNCHIE?!"

The Hamptons episode was a throw together of things--Berger on the expensive cycle and having a house in the Hamptons, the gay friend's marriage which was an obvious shot at Margret Whiting and her porn star, and location shooting in the Hamptons. The episode could have been done in the City w/o seeming so convoluted---the wedding stays and Berger could be a guest---a distant relative of someone, perhaps.

To me Carrie acting like a total dork when it came to romance was true to the character. Bitch was over her head just being kissed by another woman (Alanis Morissette in the Bi episode). She was the ultimate Frau who thought way too highly of herself and yet couldn't cope with simple things in life without making a big, messy fuss about them.

It's odd that Carrie was supposed to be Everywoman in the Big Apple, yet so few people could identify with her. because she was so dislikable. Darren Star was more successful with a later retelling of the same tale, the protagonist in Younger. She was a much more modest woman who did not get people's backs up.

R84, I think at that point Charlotte was still young and hopeful, so she dumped him over minor things because she assumed someone better is coming along. By S6, she is matured enough and tired, so she kind of settle. It is a quiet way of showing the mature pessimism has settled into Charlotte at that point. Plus, she married her prince charming Trey, only to be treated like dirt and would always be second fiddle to Trey's mother. I think that eager-to-marry guy would have been the same, a real mama's boy. Charlotte does not like that. She is a park avenue princess. She knows that by marrying a schleppy guy like Harry, he will worship her all day long like she has been used to.

In real life it would be considered having self worth issues where people claim they want something but "are not ready yet" to receive what they want and freak out when they get something that resembles what they want.

Actually all of the women settled and took what they could get. Big was old, fat and tired, with a heart condition, by the time Carrie got him; Sam wanted a power player like Richard but ended up with a novice actor; a younger Charlotte and Miranda wouldn't have given Harry and Steve the time of day.

But Charlotte had had her fingers burned; she had learned that if you marry into an upper-class (American) family, your mother-in-law will run your life.

I read an interview with Chris Noth once where he said he didn't think Big should've come back into the series after he married Natasha. I think I agree. That was actually realistic, that a character like him would settle for 'beige' and what looks right for him. It was realistic he would start cheating on her too, but I don't really think him going back to Carrie was particularly realistic.

I always laugh at that scene where Charlotte yells at her friend for stealing her baby name and then later you see her weepily putting away her cushion with the hand-stitched named "Shayla" on it. Here in Australia, a name like "Shayla" is so not the kind of name someone like Charlotte would give to her baby, it's, to be honest, a bogan type name (read: "redneck" for Americans). You could see Kath and Kim naming a child Shayla. I always wondered if it really does sound like a fancy name to Americans.

Considering this is meant to be about the men of Sex and the City, and speaking of Charlotte, while the show did a bad job of portraying gay men mostly, I did like that scene towards the end where Charlotte is trying for a child, and Anthony seriously asks her if they will still be friends, because in his experience once the baby comes along, the friendship disappears. I thought that was a sweet scene.

He even chides her & says he's always been able to make other women come & she just stares at him & he gets this look on his face like "they all faked it too?!" At the time SATC was pretty frank about sex, which was groundbreaking at the time. Keeping in mind that HBO/Showtime were *just* starting their late 90s/ early 00s renaissance of tv shows that had no limits on what they could show & discuss.

Miranda dates a guy who hasn't left Manhattan in ten years. He's a douchebag.

The "Single and Loving It?" episode where Carrie is on the date with Bradley Cooper & she's waxing poetic in the cab & he comes up to the window with that totally unflattering magazine cover. "Is this you?!" Its fun to watch Carrie get knocked down. Sometimes she needs it.

I have no answer on that, but I did just see a sixth season episode where Samantha wanted to get a boob job and when asked what sort of boobs she wanted says: "like... yours" and indicates Carrie. Charlotte says: "what's wrong with mine?" and Samantha is like: "oh they're not bad either..." but it made me think of what this poster was saying, that naturally it's Carrie's breasts that are the most desirable, just like she was the most desirable at the casino when standing next to Charlotte too.

I think on the old Might Big TV site that became Television Without Pity, they referred to it as like a Donna from 90210 moment. I never watched 90210, but I guess a similar thing happened there?

R14/R15 That Versace gown was priced at $80,000.00. So, it definitely was pretty pricey, and alone was worth tens of thousands.

R328! Aaargh! That fucking "lov-ah" nonsense!

"Uncomfortable with me taking a lov-ah?"

Not half as uncomfortable as SJP was, trying to recite those lines!

R332, LOL, Jesus fucking Christ!

Why did Kim never get an Emmy? She was even beaten by Miranda for season 6 who did nothing outstanding to merit a win. Samantha stood up to cancer and should have won for that sweaty speech scene alone

Call me a sop, but I actually really like those scenes of Miranda caring for Steve's mum. The shot of her eating out of the bin does make me tear up a bit whenever I see it. And of course they juxtapose Miranda running through the city looking for her mother-in-law with alzheimers, with Carrie running to try and get to her party, haha.

She didn't win for that episode

The scene with Miranda in the changing room after her mother dies always gets to me 🥺

Some speculation (and it's just that) at the time was that people didn't vote for Kim because she was an unlikeable character. I didn't fully buy it, but it's what people were saying (given that Doris Roberts was winning multiple Emmys for playing an elderly harpy, it didn't make sense to me).

That last season, people were worried Kristen Davis might win because she (allegedly) came off better in Cattrall's and Nixon's tapes than those two did in each other's/Davis'. I've often wondered if Nixon won because it was perceived she was the best actress of the three, not based on the tapes (similar to the first season Desperate Housewives' situation, when Felicity won somewhat unexpectedly).

Cynthia was great in that episode when her mother died. And I would say she was head and shoulders above the other three in general as an actress. (Cattrall when she was good was really great too, she just had a few moments where she was less convincing, like whenever she had to say "cunt". Davis, as likeable as she seems to be, is probably the ropiest of all of them).

R339 One of the most emotional and raw scenes in the entire show

^Didn’t that scene involve the sales lady trying to cop a feel of Miranda’s boobies?

No the shoplady was just being kind, but overbearing. She helped Miranda realise she was wearing the wrong cup size.

By the by, how do women know which bra size to get? Is there a communal set they try on,!like measuring ring sizes?

R344, measure and try on different make and models. Like clothes, not all bras fit the same. A 34C in one brand will fit different than another brand because tits are different.

But I thought you couldn't return underwear?
