The Most Amazing Connecticut Stereotypes In The New York Times’ Candace Bushnell Profile

No one would accuse Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell of being not-fancy. This is the woman, after all, who popularized Manolo Blahniks and finance fiancés named Mr. Big. But even I’ll admit this entire New York Times Magazine profile of Bushnell, whose book The Carrie Diaries, has just debuted as a CW drama,…

Candace Bushnell Will Milk “Sex And The City” For All It’s Worth

“Summer In The City” is not just a hit song in the ’60s by Lovin’ Spoonful. It’s also author Candace Bushnell’s second “prequel” young adult novel about Carrie Bradshaw, a.k.a. the way she keeps making mucho clams off “Sex and the City.” (Not that I blame her!) Summer In The City picks up where The

Candace Bushnell Tames The Term “Cougar”

Famous lady author Candace Bushnell has cracked the whip against the term “cougar” in an op-ed published in the upcoming issue of More magazine. So what if the “Sex and the City” writer is 50 and her hubby (a ballet dancer … hot) is 10 years younger? Don’t call the lady a “cougar!” She wonders,…

Is A Sex And The City Prequel Too Much Of A Good Thing?

Romance On TV: It’s A Lipstick Jungle Out There

It’s weird — as much as I loved Sex and the City when it was on TV, in retrospect, watching the episodes on demand now, I realize how “meh” the show was in its last few seasons. Which is why I was half-super excited and half-weary of seeing the latest show based o…
