Sarah Jessica Parker has been toying us with the prospect of a third Sex and the City film for months — yep, we're talking about THAT not-so-subtle Twitter exchange between cast mates and THAT Bloomingdale's photo shoot. which turned out to be a bust — but now it looks like the shows die-hard fans have finally got their answer as to whether or not there will be a SATC 3. Sadly, it's not good news...
In a twisted turn of events, one of the stars of the series, Cynthia Nixon, has just delivered a punch to every Carrie Bradshaw wannabes' gut that rumours of a third Sex and the City film are just that — RUMOURS. Say it ain't so, Cynthia.
The actress, who played Carrie's lawyer BFF Miranda Hobbes in the show and films, explained in a very Miranda-esque fashion she reckons that we don't need a third movie. Each to their own, we guess.

Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, Miranda — sorry, Cynthia — said, 'With something that is such a success, it's very hard to know what all went into us capturing that moment. We don't need another Sex and the City because we learned the lesson of the show: marriage isn't the be all and end all in women's minds any more, and women are friends with each other in a way that rivals their romantic relationships.'
If we're friends Cynthia, then why are you shattering our dreams?!
The thing is, although she may think we don't need the show or films anyone, pretty well 99.9% of the female population begs to differ. While the shows characters were often hellbent on understanding their men, the underlying message of the programme was, of course, the importance of women being there for women.
And while other TV shows and films and films have tried to recreate the SATC formula, no one has won over the hearts of it's viewers quite like Carrie, Miranda, Samantha (played by Kim Cattrall) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) with quite the same passion. With one-liners are stellar as these, it's not hard to see why, is it?
Of course, there was always the high fashion aspect of the series, which allowed those of us without a 100 pairs of Manolo Blahnik's-per-year salary to indulge in our own sartorial fantasies.
While we've chosen to respectfully disagree with Cynthia on this one, it looks like we better start moving our floral corsage collection into storage — the dream of Sex and the City 3 is over for now, at least...
