The dark sides of being Carrie Bradshaw, one can easily imagine, are as long as a grocery list: contributing to the materialistic culture of Manhattan! Perpetuating unrealistic standards of romance! Not being able to go to a bar in New York (Midtown or Murray Hill especially) without women bum-rushing you! Et cetera.
But Sarah Jessica Parker has just discovered another. Specifically, all that traipsing around Manhattan cobblestones in five-inch stiletto torture devices, which ran the gamut from high-end Manolos and Jimmy Choos to whatever Pat Field found in the $3 bin at Goodwill, has permanently fucked up her feet.
"For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels," Parker told Net-a-Porter's magazine. "I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained."
"I went to a foot doctor and he said, 'Your foot does things it shouldn't be able to do. That bone there … you've created that bone. It doesn't belong there.'"
"The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost. It's sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, 'You know what, we're really tired, can you just stop - and don't put cheap shoes on us?'"
Almost as damaging as the idea that ANYONE short of mayyyybe Andre Leon Talley would make $4 a word at Vogue. (Does someone make $4 a word at Vogue?!) [NYDN]
Chris Brown was his usual charming self onstage at Emerson Theatre in Hollywood:
"You gotta say that one thing to [your girlfriend]... Don't make me have to tell you again, that's my p***y, baby!... so you better not give it away! So every person in this motherf**king building, if you got a bad bitch you better say that s**t to her, or she might f**k another n***a."
