Has Sarah Jessica Parker been sending Kim Cattrall gifts in an effort to get her on board for Sex and the City 3? That’s the claim in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can set the record straight.
In an interview with Piers Morgan last year, Cattrall said she’s “never been friends” with her Sex and the City co-stars and had no interest in returning for a third installment in the movie franchise. Parker responded on “Watch What Happens Live” this past February by saying she was “heartbroken” over the actress’s comments. Shortly later, she sent condolences to Cattrall on Instagram after her brother passed away, but Cattrall shot back, “You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
According to Star, Parker has continued reaching out to Cattrall to make peace because she’s desperate to get another Sex and the City movie off the ground. An alleged insider tells the magazine, “[Kim’s] made it clear that she hates Sarah. But Sarah is dying to make the movie happen, she she’s buttering Kim up with notes and gifts.” The outlet’s questionable source adds, “Sarah has realized that Kim is the one calling the shots here – not her. So she’s scrambling to make amends. But it may be too little, too late.”
However, it seems the magazine concocted this phony report because Parker recently said that she can’t “imagine” doing another Sex and the City movie without Cattrall. The actress said this in response to a fan on Instagram suggesting she “replace or write [Kim] out” of Sex and the City 3. The outlet is capitalizing on the exchange by coming up with a story about Parker sending gifts and notes to get back in Cattrall’s good graces. It’s not the case.
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Parker, who tells us on the condition of anonymity that the tabloid’s article is fabricated. That’s not surprising, considering that we recently busted Star‘s sister outlet, RadarOnline, for wrongly reporting that Heidi Klum wanted to replace Cattrall in Sex And The City 3.
Last year, the tabloid’s other sister publication, the National Enquirer, falsely claimed that Parker was killing off Cattrall’s character so they could make a third movie without her. As time has shown, that never happened. It’s clear that Star and its related outlets have no insight into what’s going on with the Sex and the City franchise.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
