Sex and the City fans everywhere are clutching their imaginary pearls at the drama unfolding between two of the show’s leading ladies. While we’d all love for Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon to get along IRL as well as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda did on screen, long time fans of the iconic series know there’s been beef brewing between Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker for some time now.
The longstanding feud came to a head earlier today (Feb. 10) when Cattrall took to Instagram after Parker reached out in light of her brother, Chris Cattrall’s recent death. “My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” she began.
My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.

Not holding anything back, Cattrall added, “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend.”
Cattrall announced her brother’s death in a social media post on February 8, days after he was reported missing. SJP offered her condolences on Cattrall’s post writing, “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.”
SJP dished on her reason for extending condolences despite their strained relationship during a chat with Entertainment Tonight. “If somebody in your life, whether you’re in touch with them or not, [is] suffering for any reason, it’s involuntary that you want to convey condolences or sadness or just let someone know you’re thinking about them,” she said.
Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker starred on Sex and the City from 1998 to 2004, and in two spin-off films in 2008 and 2010. Cattrall, who has been vocal about not being “friends” with her SATC co-stars, even wrote, “The only “demand” I ever made was that I never wanted to do a 3rd film,” in response to claims that her excessive demands held up talks of a third installation.
