“I think so much reality television — and the women that dominate culture today — are pretty unfriendly towards one another,” she says. “They use language that’s really objectionable and cruel and not supportive. I like to remember that Carrie and the other woman in ‘Sex and the City’ were really nice to each other.”
While that stance can certainly be debated, it’s hard to deny that Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda were anything but the best of friends. SJP says that’s why everyone liked — and still likes — Carrie so much.
“She was a really good friend,” Parker says. “That’s why they can forgive those very apparent flaws and selfishnesses. She was a deeply devoted friend, and I think women really respond to that kind of connection. I think we all want it, we all work towards having it, and we’re not always the very best friends we can be.”
Do you agree with Parker’s stance on the women on TV in pop culture?
