Kim Cattrall Savaging SJP Is The Most Important Thing That Happened This Weekend
"You are not my family. You are not my friend."
Winter Olympics? Nah. Barnaby Joyce’s affair? Old news. The most important thing that happened in the world this weekend went down on Instagram, between former Sex and the City actors Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker.
By now, SATC fans are probably across Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker’s long-running super-feud. After a decade of rumoured bad blood, last year drama erupted publicly when Cattrall refused to sign on for a third Sex and the City movie, a decision SJP told the media she found “disappointing”. Cattrall was furious that Parker had thrown her under the bus, explaining that she’d respectfully turned down the project and describing their relationship as “toxic”.
If this weekend’s events are anything to go by, “toxic” is definitely the right word for it.
Last week, Kim Cattrall shared an Instagram post announcing that her brother, Chris Cattrall, had died. On that post, Parker left the following comment: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.”
… and that’s when things kicked off.
Kim quickly devoted a whole new Instagram post to calling Sarah Jessica Parker a “hypocrite”, “cruel”, and suggested she only offered condolences about the death of Chris Cattrall to score points with the public.
“Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” she wrote. “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.”
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.

Cattrall also directed her followers to an NY Post article that claims the pair’s rivalry dates back to 1998, when Sex and the City first aired on HBO. The article claims that Sarah Jessica Parker, who allegedly felt threatened by Cattrall, deliberately formed an on-set clique that excluded her. According to the article, Cattrall nearly didn’t sign on for the first Sex and the City movie because of her “horrible” treatment from SJP on set over the years.
Unsurprisingly, the internet has not been chill about this very public drama:
The only TV show I want to watch now is the true story of Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker by Ryan Murphy

Kim Cattrall needs to drop the memoir. I’ll ghost write if necessary.

SJP and Kim Cattrall is what happens when you teach Baby Boomers how instagram works.

Now would be a great time for the rest of the Sex and the City cast to log on and keep this drama rolling. Looking at you, Kristin Davis.
