“Sex and the City” is female wish fulfillment. But then again, “Iron Man” is male wish fulfillment. Women wish they could wear haute couture; men wish they could wear a flying robot suit. But such daydreams are just the candy shell of the Blow Pop. The bubblegum at the center isn’t that different from many of my favorite manly movies and television shows. The evil Emperor called Luke Skywalker’s faith in his friends his greatest weakness. But it was Skywalker’s greatest strength; the “Star Wars” movies are about friendships, loyalties, fighting monsters with people who will watch your back no matter what. Likewise, “Sex and the City” is a big wish: that we are not alone in our life’s adventure. You can’t choose your family. Romantic love is fleeting. Friends are forever. Keep reading »
In elementary school, I was the only kid in my class whose favorite Ninja Turtle was Donatello. Later, I was the only one of my girlfriends who chose Jon Knight as her favorite New Kid on the Block. In other words, I have a thing for the runt of the litter. And the current runt of the pop culture litter is Miranda Hobbes, the one who nobody picks as their favorite “Sex and the City” character.

Laugh and jeer all you want. You bet your Manolos I’ll be lined up this weekend, in my cutest summer dress, to see “Sex and the City 2.” I know that it’s so predictable-New-York-blogger-girl of me, but I am chomping at the bit. I don’t care if it’s stupid; I don’t care if Carrie and gang are wearing turbans and riding camels — I NEED IT! I especially need the hot men. Let’s play shun, shag, or marry with the dudes of “SATC2,” shall we? Keep reading »
Which is worse: wearing the same outfit as another person at the same event or wearing the same outfit to two completely different events and getting photographed at both? I say the former is most embarrassing because you’ll be known as the woman who was dressed exactly like that other woman for the whole event. But Becki Newton knows what the latter is like because she wore the same outfit (right down to the clutch and shoes) to the NBC upfronts on May 17 and the “Sex and the City 2” premiere on May 24. That’s only a week apart, but who cares? Becki looked super cute, stylish, and fun in her peach-colored blazer and satin shorts. I especially love the jade green addition, thanks to her clutch, to her two-tone outfit. Maybe Becki is just like the rest of us. Keep reading »
“Sex and the City” first appeared on TV in 1998, but the volume of conversations we’ve had about the show make it seem like it’s been on for decades. Include the movies — like “Sex and the City 2,” which appears in theaters on May 27 — and it feels like centuries.
Or maybe it just seems that way because we’ve had the same tired old conversations for years now. Are you a Carrie, Miranda, Samantha or Charlotte? Is it good for women? Is it bad for women? Someone bludgeon me with a stiletto, please!
After the jump, the 10 conversations about “Sex and the City” you are henceforth officially banned from having. (And yes, this decree is very strict and highly enforceable!) Keep reading »
“Anything from thongs to vibrators. That’s the least of it: fellatio, how to control the taste of a man’s semen. … I’m at a fish counter and this guy comes up to me and says, ‘You know, I just have to thank you. Thank you so much. There’s no way I could have really broached the subject about sex with my daughter without your help. Thank you.’ I’m at the fish counter with the father of a 13-year-old girl. I mean, at the same time it’s wonderful, but I’m like, ‘Just give me the clams and let me get the f**k out of here.’”
