Much Of The “Sex And The City” Plot Lines Were REAL?


I don’t know if I wholly believe this…BUT I LIKE IT.

According to Cynthia Nixon, AKA Miranda Hobbes, all of the insane and (in my opinion) cartoonish plot lines for the HBO show were inspired by actual events that happened to the show’s writers or people they were close with.

That makes me have pretty much no hope for humanity, but OKAY.

During a recent IMDb Asks interview (skip to 16:10 if you’re lazy), the actress came clean:

“Even though crazy and outlandish things happen in Sex and the City, fantastical things seemingly, they had a rule in the writer’s room that nothing — they couldn’t put anything in an episode that hadn’t literally happened to someone in the writer’s room or someone that they knew firsthand…The outlandish, physical, sexual things that happened, they really happened. They weren’t just tall tales.”

Woah. if this is true (and I’m not sure it is) TV writers and their friends certainly are FRISKY, aren’t they?

Do you believe it?

Cynthia Nixon reveals her “devastation” over ‘Sex and the City’ teaching that true love is all about money

Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda on ‘Sex and the City’ is opening up about the TV show that made her famous. While the 47-year-old is proud of what SATC accomplished for women, she is ashamed of it’s portrayal of what true love is.

It’s been almost ten years since the show ended (CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!?). Cynthia, who is currently campaigning for Bill de Blasio in the New York mayoral race, told The New York Times “Is this what these women think true love is? A man who has enough money to buy you a walk-in closet?”

She never liked the relationship between love and money on the show. “It is an aspect of the show I never liked. I remember when we screened the first movie in London, when Mr. Big shows Carrie that closet he’s built for her and the entire audience clapped. I found that devastating. Maybe that’s a strong word, but I was disheartened.”

Cynthia is married to Christine Marinoni, the former New York director of the Alliance for Quality Education.

Ms Nixon, who had been heterosexual before falling in love with Ms Marinoni in 2004, has worked as an activist since her Sex and the City days.

She quickly came out publicly and began doing work on behalf of gay rights, and also became an advocate on behalf of public education.

Unlike the typical Sex and the City character, flaunting designer clothes, perfect apartments and expensive nights out in New York, Ms Nixon says she buy her groceries at Whole Foods and rides the subway everywhere.

‘What am I going to do, take a limousine?’ she said.

What do you think? I watched every season of SATC, and I didn’t really think much of it – other than it’s entertainment. It never really bothered me, but I can see how some women would want to hold out for what Carrie Bradshaw had. If you have enough money, you’ll have love.

An event where Ellen Barkin looks like a zombie, and everyone else looks miserable.

I was looking through the pictures from the Tony Awards last night, and I thought to myself – DANG – everyone looks awful! Staring with Ellen Barkin, who in my opinion looks like a zombie – and ending with the usually beautiful Amanda Seyfried.

Is everyone trying to look miserable? Cause it’s working!

Jessica Chastain is wearing a see-through dress, which most everyone is talking about today. Sheryl Crow looks great, even with her Texas hair.

Seriously, look at their faces! Is this the saddest event ever?
