Sarah Jessica Parker has publicly dissed “The Carrie Diaries,” the CW series that stars AnnaSophia Robb and is a prequel to “Sex in the City.”
When asked what she thought of the show by Net-A-Porter, she replied, “I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity. … She is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about it, but it’s… odd.” Apparently she’s not alone in her assessment, because according to The Daily Beast the show might not be renewed for a second season.
Candace Bushnell, the original author of the franchise, defended the new show by seemingly hitting back at Parker.
“Look, [she’s] 47,” Bushnell told The Daily Beast. “Carrie Bradshaw couldn’t be an ingénue anymore. … I think they were stuck doing what the audience wanted.”
