Kim Cattrall posts savage Instagram message to Sarah Jessica Parker following the death of her brother
If you didn't know already, things weren't all fun and games on the set of Sex and the City. As revealed in October last year, Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha on the show, doesn't have much in the way of good feelings towards her co-star Sarah Jessica Parker.
In an interview, she claims that not only were they not close during the show's six-year run between 1998 to 2004 (plus the two movies), but they had "never been friends":
"We’ve never been friends. We’ve been colleagues and in some ways it’s a very healthy place to be, because then you have a clear line between your professional life and relationship and your personal.
“The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over. Sarah Jessica, she could have been nicer, she could have in some way. I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.”
Following these comments, Parker said that she was "just heartbroken". In an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, she said:
"I mean, that whole week, you and I spoke about it endlessly, because I was just, I don’t know, I found it very upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience.
"It’s sad, but I always think that what ties us together was this singular experience. It was a professional experience, but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives, so I hope that eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken."
However, the rift between them didn't stop Parker from reaching out when she heard the news that Kim Cattrall's brother, Chris, had suddenly passed away. In an Instagram post Cattrall said that she and her family wanted privacy to mourn, but also thanked her followers for their "outpouring of love and support in this trying time".
While she responded well to a message sent her about the death from Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda Hobbes on Sex and the City, writing that "hearing your voice meant so much to me", she didn't have anything nice to say about Parker when she reached out.
“Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx,” Parker wrote, and in reply, Cattrall posted an image that showed the text: "I don't need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker". In the caption, she wrote:
"My Mom asked me today 'When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?' Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) 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."
She also linked to a New York Post article titled 'Inside the mean-girls culture that destroyed 'Sex and the City'' for anyone who wanted to read into the ongoing feud in more depth. As you can expect, the internet exploded when they heard this news.
With the history that these two have had, it's unlikely that this feud is going to die down anytime soon.
