Sarah Jessica Parker Ends The Kim Cattrall Catfight Once And For All

by Taylor Harris

Sarah Jessica Parker is waving the white flag so to speak. In a new interview with New York, SJP dismissed claims that she was ever at battle with former “Sex & The City” co-star Kim Cattrall. “I’d just like to remind everybody that there is no catfight,” she said, speaking at the launch of her new bridal line. “I have never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word, so I would love to redefine it.”

She added: “I also want to remind everybody that there were four women on the set and I spent equal time with all of them, so this was not a set with two women who didn’t get along. I’ve always held Kim’s work in high regard and always appreciative of her contributions. If she chooses not to do the third movie, there’s not a lot I can do to change her mind and we must respect it.

“But, no, there is no catfight, there never has been a catfight,” she reaffirmed. “I’ve never fought with someone publicly in my life, nor would I. And I spent time with all of the women on the set. People need to recall that it wasn’t just two women on the set fighting because that just never happened. We are enormously proud of what we got to do and I don’t want someone sharing thoughts publicly, which is Kim’s right to do and that is what it is, but we spent 10, 12 years of our life doing something that I really loved and I feel privileged to be part of and I don’t want this to eclipse it or change its experience for that audience that was so good to us for so long.”

The feud started last October when Cattrall reportedly drew a line in the sand, saying she would not sign on for a third installment of the SATC film franchise. She told Piers Morgan “the answer was always a respectful but firm no.” She also added that she was never close with her cast mates. “We’ve never been friends. We’ve been colleagues,” she said.

While on bestie Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, SJP responded to Cattrall’s comments, saying “I was heartbroken. It’s really upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience so it’s sad.”

Things turned ugly when Cattrall’s brother Christopher passed away and Parker expressed her sympathies, writing: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.” Cattrall responded with an Instagram post, suggesting Parker was sending condolences on a public platform as a means of generating positive press.

The post also shared a New York Post story detailing the mean girls culture on set that was allegedly fostered by Parker. Parker responded in an interview with People in February, saying “I never talked about it, except [to say] that some of us were disappointed [about the movie not happening],” Parker said to People. “But I never responded to the conversation Kim had with Piers Morgan, where she said things that were really hurtful about me. We had this experience and it was amazing, and nothing will ever be like it. We had a connection with an audience, and we had a connection with the city and with this crew, and we got to tell these crazy stories with each other. So I don’t want to mess with that. I couldn’t imagine anyone else playing that part.”
