EXCLUSIVE “Sex and the City 2″: Gossip Cop separates WHAT’S REAL from WHAT’S RUMOR
By Michael Lewittes | 9:50 am, September 25th, 2009EXCLUSIVE DETAILS!!!
Since Gossip Cop is THE trusted source in reporting, we found out what’s in the current script of the “Sex and the City” sequel in order to correct a few inaccuracies that have been reported.
Do not worry: We are NOT going to spoil the film’s plot – well, not that much of it.
If you don’t want to know anything about the film, now’s the time to check out our other stories, otherwise…
Rumor: According to Us Weekly, “Big loses a lot of money and takes a job in London, living alone in a one-bedroom apartment. Big gets really low and ends up in bed with another woman. After she leaves him, Carrie discovers she is pregnant.”
Reality: While Mr. Big (Chris Noth) talks about the declining stock market, losing a lot of money is not part of the plot nor does he take a job in London. He also doesn’t end up in bed with another woman, and Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) does not discover she’s pregnant. There IS an interesting plotline involving Carrie, Big and kids, but we’re not going to spoil the film.
Rumor: The Brisbane Times, and other outlets, have reported, “Charlotte and Harry also let Carrie Bradshaw… and husband Big move in with them when they lose a huge amount of cash in the recession,” and that Big “eventually travels to the Middle East to try and recover their fortune.”
Reality: Carrie and Big do NOT move in with Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and her husband Harry (Evan Handler) – because the financial crisis affected them – but a lot of the plot does take place in the Middle East, only we’re not going to spoil the reason why the women from “Sex and the City” end up there. All we’ll say is that the Middle East plot is Samantha related.
Rumor: Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) is sued for malpractice and quits her job at a law firm to open up a restaurant with Steve (David Eigenberg).
Reality: Miranda does leave her firm – not because of a malpractice suit – but she does not open a restaurant with Steve.
Rumor: Charlotte suspects Harry of cheating and, along with their kids, she leaves him.
Reality: Charlotte does suspect Harry of cheating. They now have TWO kids, but her fear of him cheating is secondary to her interest in the woman who she suspects he’s fooling around with.
Rumor: Carrie’s friend Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson) marries Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone) in a gay wedding, and Liza Minnelli performs.
Reality: Yes, the two men tie the knot, and Liza Minnelli takes an active part in the wedding. According to the script Samantha says, “Why would Liza say yes to this?” to which Big replies, “She had money with Bernie Madoff.”
On the subject of marriages, despite photos of Samantha in a wedding dress, in the current script she does NOT get married in the film.
We can also tell you that Aidan (John Corbett) is back, and there are a few wild twists and turns involving Big, but that’s all we’re going to say (for now). For the rest, you’ll have to check out the movie when it’s released next spring!
