Candace Bushnell went on the Today show this morning to self-aggrandize in her affected accent and promote her new show Lipstick Jungle. The show, she claims, is all about balancing your career with your family and sense of "morality." As someone whose life would appear to be devoid of the latter two ingredients — not to mention, someone whose career has consisted entirely of writing about herself and her friends and tell me why that gets to constitute a "career" again? — it was a little annoying. But not as annoying as when she said that women "weren't allowed to talk about sex" before Sex & The City. Wow, Candace, we never thought of you as the rightful heir to Erica Jong before! But thanks for adding to the already lengthy list of absurd notions for which the world has you to thank!!
