After the announcement that Sex & The City is doing a revival series sans Kim Cattrall, I’ve been waiting for the IRL Samantha Jones to make a comment ‘cos as we’ve seen from her long-running feud with Sarah Jessica Parker, she’s not one to shy away from a public scrap.
In the days following the announcement of the 10-episode miniseries titled And Just Like That, Kim has been unusually quiet. All we’ve seen from her via social media is a coupla shots out in nature, two of which were captioned with the word “breathe” which I believe to be her way of saying that she’s gritting her teeth and ~breathing~ through the pain of seeing her former co-stars cop millions of bucks to return to the show they once helmed together.

And today, fans have spotted the closest thing to a reaction by Kim Cattrall over on Twitter. The actress liked a tweet that applauded her for declining to appear in the revival.
The tweet read, “I absolutely love Sex and the City and whilst I am saddened that Samantha will not return, I applaud doing what is best for you and think this is great example of putting yourself first. Well done @KimCattrall.”

Yesterday SJP assured fans that the reason why Kim Cattrall isn’t in the revival is not because they “dislike each other.”
“No. I don’t dislike her. I’ve never said that. Never would,” she wrote on Instagram. “Samantha isn’t part of this story. But she will always be a part of us. No matter where we are or what we do.”
It comes after the third Sex & The City film was scrapped because Kim Cattrall pulled out at the last minute.
Back in 2016, she told the Daily Record that she doesn’t feel like the iconic noughties series fits into the current climate.
“I think the climate changed,” she said. “To have four women talking about shopping trips and spending $400 on shoes when people are having trouble putting food on the table?”
Not to mention the fact that she doesn’t want to be “in a situation for even an hour where I’m not enjoying myself,” as she famously told The Guardian.
