Many gays, including myself, can pretty much recite over 100 different classic lines from Sex and the City (the show, not the decent 1st movie or the terrible 2nd one).
Bravo talking head Andy Cohen, who was once featured briefly as a shoe salesman on the HBO series, happens to be BFF’s with Carrie Bradshaw herself, Sarah Jessica Parker. He shared an Instagram clip of them in front of an apartment building that was the same spot as one of the most memorable scenes from the show.
Carrie’s second biggest love on SATC was no doubt Aidan Shaw (John Corbett). Many fans of the show still believe that she should’ve ended up with him as opposed to Mr. Big (Chris Noth), but we saw how that all played out in the second film that should’ve never been made in the first place.
Carrie and Aidan have a memorable moment outside his apartment during the fifth episode of season 4 called “Baby, Talk is Cheap”. This is the same one where Samantha (Kim Cattrall) wears fake nipples and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) dates a marathoner who’s majorly into rimming. Ahhh… relatable.
Carrie throws stones at his window after they have a friendly double date with Miranda and Steve (David Eigenberg). This is a year after he dumped her for cheating on him with Big. He opens the window to a babbling Carrie professing her love for him and how they should get back together. He eventually cuts her off and screams “YOU BROKE MY HEART!”
Andy, 50, and SJP, 54, did a pretty decent job at recreating that scene over the weekend. Any thoughts of Carrie coming back to life is null and void, however, as the planned 3rd movie was axed two years ago. Candace Bushnell, the author of SATC, could be bringing the show back to life in a different capacity as a follow-up series is in the works based on her new novel Is There Still Sex in the City?
SJP will also be on hand to present Andy with the Vito Russo Award at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Saturday, May 4. It is presented to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community. Past winners include George Takei, RuPaul and Nathan Lane.
