Sex and the City star Kristin Davis got a little more than she bargained for from hardcore fans of the series, after she posted a supposedly innocent throwback snap on her Instagram page.
Ahead of the Emmys, she dropped a picture of herself, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon from the Emmys in 2004.
Absent from the shot, however, was Kim Cattrall.
Ever since the show wound up in 2004, there has been frequent talk of a none-too-private feud between Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the series, and her co-stars.
This bubbled up to the surface once again in 2016, after it was claimed that Cattrall would not sign up for a third Sex and the City movie, despite it having been given the green light and her co-stars all jumping on board.
Quickly, Davis was accused of ‘shading’ Cattrall, and was the subject of free flowing insults, commenters accusing her of being ‘petty’, ‘shameful’ and, in one instance, ‘hateful’.
Having missed much of the drama herself, she checked in again yesterday, and posted another picture, a flower from her garden which she hoped might calm the situation some.
Despite the rumours of in-fighting, and the truly appalling reviews of the second Sex and the City movie, a third film was said to be on the cards back in December of 2016.
Then things went sour, Parker confirming the movie’s cancellation.
“I’m disappointed,” she said. “We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
Some months later Cattrall went on the record in an interview with Piers Morgan, saying that the co-stars were ‘never friends’.
Parker later told US talk show host Andy Cohen that she was ‘heartbroken’ by Cattrall’s remarks.
“I mean that whole week… I don’t know I found it really upsetting because that’s, you know, that’s not the way I recall our experience,” she said.
“I always think that what ties us together is this singular experience is the thing. It was a professional experience but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives. So I’m hoping that that sort of eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken.”
