And Just Like That

WHAT DO KATIE HOLMES AND SARAH JESSICA PARKER HAVE IN COMMON?

And just like that, Katie Holmes could join the cast of And Just Like That. Season 3 of the updated Sex and the City series won’t air until 2025, but according to a show insider, Katie is being wooed to appear on a few episodes and we can thank Zac Posen if it happens. AJLT star Sarah Jessica Parker is buddies with fashion designer Zac, and he also happens to be friends with Katie. Zac thought NY based Katie would be PERFECT for the show and Sarah, who’s also an executive producer, agreed. A few details still need to be ironed out, but our source says it’s pretty much a done deal.

CARRIE BRADSHAW MIGHT END UP WITH MATTHEW BRODERICK!

It only took around 30 years, but Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker are finally planning to work together again. The last time the couple were costars was in 1996 in the Broadway revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, According to a source, Matthew will join an upcoming season of Sarah’s popular HBOMAX series, And Just Like That. Since Mr. Big died and Aiden went back to his family on the farm, Sarah’s character Carrie Bradshaw is solo. Producers, including Sarah, want Carrie to end the series in love, so they’ve tapped her real life husband to play her love interest. Our source says that the show has been greenlit for a few more seasons and the plan is to introduce Matthew’s character in the very last season, so expect Carrie to have her fair share of flings until then.

“AND JUST LIKE THAT” CHARACTERS MIGHT BECOME DOLLS!

Will women and gay men play with dolls? That’s the question And Just Like That producers are trying to answer now. According to a series insider (remember we were the FIRST to reveal Kim Cattrall was making a surprise appearance!) producers have developed a series of collectible dolls complete with designer wardrobes that they are test marketing in focus groups. The show’s demographics are mainly middle-aged women and gay men, (just like this website!) so producers are trying to decipher whether there’s a market for these dolls, which will retail for a few hundred dollars each. So far the feedback has been positive, so Sarah Jessica Parker and her pals could be coming to a store near you.

KIM CATTRALL HAS THE UPPER HAND

You might recall that we were the first to reveal that Kim Cattrall made a surprise cameo in the season finale of And Just Like That and just as we predicted, the episode is already shattering expectations, drawing HUGE ratings. The powers that be at HBO know a good thing when they see it, so they’re now negotiating with Kim (begging her) to make a few more cameos in the upcoming season 3. They know it’s unlikely Kim will film with Sarah Jessica Parker, so they’re hoping to get her to film some scenes with Kristin Davis. Kim and Kristin seemed to get along well during the original run of Sex and the City, so Kristin’s sweet character Charlotte is the likely choice to interact with Kim. It’s not a done deal yet, but if the stars align and the actors strike ends, we COULD see more of Kim on the popular series.

KIM CATTRALL MIGHT GET THE LAST LAUGH

As you know we were the first to tell you that despite all that infighting, Kim Cattrall was set to make a guest appearance on And Just Like That. Kim’s cameo in this season’s finale is expected to bring in HUGE ratings. If these predictions are correct, my source reveals Kim will likely be BACK in season 3! Cynthia Nixon’s character Miranda has moved to LA this season and films her scenes separately from the original cast. Kim could come back for a few more appearances with the explanation that her character lives outside of New York, so she would NOT have to film with the others. My source insists that if the ratings deliver, Kim could earn millions of dollars just to appear in a few episodes next season – and she’d never have to come in contact with her costars…

SAMANTHA IS COMING BACK: WE TOLD YA SO!

Back in 2021 we told you that Kim Cattrall would make an appearance on the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That, in a special episode dedicated to beloved star Willie Garson. While it didn’t happen in the first season (since his character’s death was never addressed) it’s happening in the upcoming one! This is especially surprising because Kim has been openly feuding with Sarah Jessica Parker. People magazine just revealed that Kim filmed her guest appearance this past March and while they didn’t reveal the episode’s plot, our source says it’s a memorial tribute to Willie’s fan-favorite character, Stanford.

AND JUST LIKE THAT: BETTE MIDLER IS SET TO MAKE TROUBLE

Persistence pays off, just ask Sarah Jessica Parker. Since her days on Sex and the City, Sarah has wanted her Hocus Pocus costar and fellow New Yorker, Bette Midler, to appear on her series, but it never happened. They had so much fun filming their hit sequel Hocus Pocus 2, that Bette agreed to appear on the SATC spin-off, And Just Like That. The details are still being worked out, but the current plan is for Bette to play herself and plug her pet project, the New York Restoration Fund, the project Bette started over 25 years ago to save NYC’s parks and green space. The working script has Sarah’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, volunteer at the charity and clash with Bette.

KIM CATTRALL: LIVING WELL IS THE BEST REVENGE

Looks like Kim Cattrall is living happily ever after since that disagreement with her Sex and the City costars that caused her to be written out of their new series And Just Like That. Kim seemed to resent Sarah Jessica Parker for some reason. Of the two actresses, Sarah has always seemed to be the most reasonable and downright nice. But Kim’s colorful character was much loved on the show. Nowadays she’s living in both New York and London with her boyfriend of 6 years, Russell Thomas. He’s 14 years younger than Kim (good for her!) and they met when he was working at the BBC- not sure what he does for a living now. Above, Kim was a guest at the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards where she received the Screen Icon award.

SEXUAL ASSAULT IN THE CITY: WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO CHRIS NOTH?

If Chris Noth had not reluctantly agreed to appear in the SATC series And Just Like That, this sexual assault scandal probably would NEVER have come to light. Noth ONLY returned to the series because he liked the offer of a brief appearance and a spectacular ending for his character. The Peloton story turned out to be so hot that it brought back bad memories for two women, and they coincidentally brought their stories (over 10 years apart) to the Hollywood Reporter without knowing about each other. Both young vulnerable girls were enchanted by the popular mature actor who played Mr Big. As yet, the women have not filed charges with police or even mentioned lawsuits. They just wanted to tell their stories. Since Noth was married during the 2015 alleged assault, he must be in hot water with his wife. (and more women might come forward!)Just one episode into the series and And Just like That is getting an astonishing amount of publicity!

WILL KIM CATTRALL SHOW HER LOVE FOR WILLIE GARSON?

If you were saddened about the sudden death of Sex & the City actor Willie Garson (he played Carrie’s gay BF Sanford) you can imagine how the rest of the cast and crew feel. We hear that And Just Like That writers plan to honor Willie by writing an episode all about Sanford’s “death” – and here’s the BIG news: they want Kim Cattrall to guest on this special episode dedicated to Willie and his character. And she has NOT said no! How could she? Like her costars, Kim WAS fond of Willie and this would be a great way for her to mend fences with the SATC people and finish off her connection to the show in a nice way. We shall see…
