Rumors of a third “Sex and the City” movie are in the works, and I’ll be honest, I’m a little excited. I didn’t love the second movie (did anyone?), but I love the series. Like so many viewers, I feel like I know those characters and that they just get me — minus the show’s leading lady.
Carrie Bradshaw is a nightmare. She’s the worst example of a female role model I could ever think of, and an awful representation of single life in general. My fury at Carrie has gotten so bad that I find myself shouting at my screen when watching the show. I wish, more than anything, that I could shake her by the shoulders and ask how on earth she could be so clueless. Here are some things I wish I could scream at Carrie (besides “BE NICE TO AIDAN!” because that would fill hundreds of pages all on its own) — with accompanying GIFs of Carrie being annoying, naturally.

Like so many ladies, I have a storied love/hate relationship with “Sex And The City.” Carrie Bradshaw infuriates me on the regular, but that hasn’t stopped me from periodically binge-watching the show and wondering whether Carrie would ever work it out with the one and only Mr. Big. Yes, the fact that she ends up with such a commitment-phobic jerk with little personality to speak of is a pretty crappy example for viewers, but Big has his redeeming moments. Try to imagine, though, what would’ve happened if Carrie had gone a different route. When the series finale was filmed, the show’s creators put together three alternate endings, apparently in an attempt to leave the crew unaware of how the series would conclude so they couldn’t give away any secrets. Enjoy, and try to imagine what a challenge it would’ve been for producers to cobble together two subsequent films from any of these alternate endings. (Let’s be real, nobody would want to spend two hours in a movie theatre watching Carrie’s marriage to the Russian). [Into The Gloss]
Let’s be real: the only way you could afford even one pair of Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes is if you skipped out on rent for the month. But what if I told you that you could own a bunch of Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes at once? It’s possible through the magic of art! This 18″ x 24″ print by PopChartLab features dozens of Carrie’s beloved heels from Christian Louboutin, Dior, Manolo Blahnik, even J.Crew. Plus, it’s made on recycled paper in Brooklyn (a place I’m not sure Carrie set foot in, even when when her best friend Miranda moved there). It’s the perfect print to hang while you try and manifest your dream closet. A girl can dream, can’t she? [PopChartLab]
The fashion world is up in arms at the rumor the Anna Wintour is considering Sarah Jessica Parker to take her place as the next editor-in-chief of Vogue. Sometimes I confuse SJP with her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw. They’re both New York fixtures and total fashionistas, which is why it would make perfect sense for SJP to succeed Anna Wintour and run the magazine. Well, it sort of would, if we ignore the fact that she has no editorial experience that I know of and that there are Vogue employees who have been with the company for decades and toiled their way up to an opportunity like that through years of hard work.

Over the last few weeks, two very popular TV shows came to an end. “Breaking Bad” went out with a bang, while “Dexter” flatlined and choked on its own absurdity. Don’t worry — I won’t spoil either of those show conclusions for you (for now). But I will spoil the endings to these 12 other shows. Click on, if you dare…
“Sex and the City” is one of the many shows I have a love-hate relationship with. In the beginning it was a groundbreaking show for portraying women in their thirties as single (without judging them to be spinsters), being frank about the fact that women enjoyed sex and for showing each to be independent and successful. Then it sort of became shoe porn and harder to understand why Carrie was obsessed with Big, a guy who seemed pretty indifferent and outright mean to her. Oh, well.
No matter how much hate I have for the show, I have a lot of love for it and will probably always watch the TV series or movie with glee if it is put in front of my face. With great love and admiration comes great parody. The “Sex and the City” 3-quel twitter perfectly captures Carrie’s not-so-clever, on the nose, voice overs in a way only a fan could. You would have had to have watched quite a few seasons to get Bradshaw’s naive, pun-y musings about romance in the big city down so well. Read more on College Candy…
