When asked for her opinion of Miranda Hob—excuse me, Cynthia Nixon’s—freshly announced campaign for Governor of New York, Samantha Jo—excuse me, Kim Cattrall—told a fan on Twitter, “I support & respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices.”
Using “former colleague” instead of “Cynthia” was clever wording on Cattrall’s part, and, as far as I’m concerned, officially ends her feud with Sarah Jessica Parker. She supports any and all of her Sex and the City colleagues’ career decisions, full stop.
Thanks to this extremely accepting and supportive tweet, we can assume that if Sarah Jessica Parker ever wants to, oh, run for Senate, Kim would give a thumbs up. If Kristin Davis ever wants to open a kombucha bar on Staten Island, she’ll have Kim’s blessing. If Jason Lewis (who played Smith Jared) wants to write and star in a one-man show about how much he loathed working with Kim Cattrall, Kim Cattrall will say, “Break a leg, bud.” If Michael Patrick King wants to make a third Sex and the City movie, kill off Samantha, and cast Sharon Stone as a new fourth friend named Cassandra Cohn, Kim would just smile and return to her scatting.
But that’s not how celebrity feuds work. We as a society will never let them end, and despite the fact that Cattrall’s tweet is the most mature thing anyone involved in this feud has said in months, let’s be honest with ourselves: headlines will include the phrase “Amid SJP’s Feud With Kim Cattrall” long into Cynthia Nixon’s second term in the White House.
