Winds from the land down under bring us harrowing gossip: one John James Preston (alias: Mr. Big) has been quoted saying critical things about his wife/gal about town Carrie Bradshaw – most specifically, her sexual proclivities. After reading this interview, I couldn't help but wonder: will she ever forgive him?
In an interview with News.com.au (during which he curiously spoke in the third person), Mr. Big said:
One of the things I tell people is that he never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was. It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn't. He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. The relationship just didn't work, and he went on to get married while she went on to … how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore! [laughs] There's a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that's not the case — she was a strong, smart woman.
His comments have some friends and hanger-ons of Carrie's reeling. Mr. Big "is offering a textbook case of 'slut-shaming,' holding women who have casual sex to a different standard than men who do," wrote one in a seething editorial. The remarks are also likely hitting Ms. Bradshaw hard; it was only so many years ago that she appeared on the cover of New York magazine looking a little worse for the wear, the headline reading "Single and Fabulous?" (note the question mark).
Mr. Big also weighed in on the potential for yet another documentary about the lives of him, Carrie, and those other friends of hers he spends time with sometimes, and discussed why the last movie didn't do so well at the box office:
I don't think it was a bomb, but I think because they're greedy, it didn't make as much money as they wanted. But I think it was considered an indulgence and a distraction because it hit right when the recession happened. People were like, 'Who gives a f*ck about these broads going to Dubai when we can't pay our mortgage?'
Is there going to be another [Sex and the City] movie? The tweets! I can't believe those girls are tweeting, they're being very naughty. I don't go near Twitter, it's all bulls**t. I'll believe it when they say 'Action!' and until then I don't pay any attention. Sure, I've heard rumours, but they've been sayin' that s**t for 10 years. It'd be a great thing, but for now it's all just Tweety-pie s**t.
But the most important question has yet to be answered: will New York City's dream couple break up – again?!
