10 Years Later: Sex and the City Lessons That Are Still So True

Originally posted 02/21/2014 03:00PM

It's been 10 years since the series finale of Sex and the City aired Feb. 22, 2004, which was many, many cosmopolitans ago.

We've since filled the void with shows like Girls, hair accessories that aren't scrunchies and the aforementioned cocktails (not to mention two follow-up films). But we'll never forget the HBO rom-sitcom, which followed the ultimate N.Y.C. core-four – Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) – through a dizzying world of guys, 6-inch heels and perfectly phrased one-liners.

Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni Take a Family Stroll

Originally posted 05/30/2012 10:00AM

It's a family outing in their Manhattan neighborhood for the just-married Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni.

The actress (who shaved her head for her recent stage role as a cancer patient in the award-winning drama Wit) and the education activist have been a couple since 2004, then became engaged in 2009 and finally tied the knot last Sunday.

In addition to their 1½-year-old son together, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni (who apparently shares his parents' red hair), Nixon has two children, Samantha, 15, and Charles, 9, from her previous relationship with teacher Danny Mozes.

The couple got engaged in 2009, but waited to marry until it was legal in New York state, which happened last summer.

Spider-Man Gets Cold Shoulder from Tonys

Spider-Man Gets Cold Shoulder from Tonys

Broadway's biggest night – the 66th annual Tony Awards – may be 40 days away, but the celebrating has already kicked in, especially for a modest new musical called Once, a love story set in Ireland that scored the most nominations of any show this year: 11, including best musical.

Not celebrating: the much-maligned Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which, despite an expenditure of $70 million, scads of publicity and the music of U2's Bono and the Edge, landed with only two nominations, for costume and scenic design.

Faring better after the nominations were announced Tuesday morning – by a chipper Kristin Chenoweth and a droll star Jim Parsons, who is about to star in a Broadway revival of the comedy Harvey – were such nominees as Andrew Garfield, Cynthia Nixon, Philip Seymour Hoffman, James Earl Jones, Stockard Channing, Linda Lavin, John Lithgow and Frank Langella.

Her wedding to Christine Marinoni might not be imminent, but Cynthia Nixon can promise ahead of time that she won't be a drama queen leading up to the big day.

"No, no Godzilla wedding," the Sex and the City star, 44, told PEOPLE at last week's New York Women in Film & Television's Designing Women Awards at Macy's Herald Square.

Nixon and Marinoni haven't set a date and are still holding out hope that they can tie the knot in New York, where same-sex marriage is not yet legal. "We're doing two things," Nixon says. "We're doing as much as we can to make it legal here, and we're also looking into other options."

Sarah Jessica Parker & Rest of Sexy Ladies Premiere the Sequel

Sarah Jessica Parker & Rest of Sexy Ladies Premiere the Sequel

Originally posted 05/25/2010 09:40AM

Wearing a bright yellow Valentino gown that alter-ego Carrie Bradshaw would certainly approve, Sarah Jessica Parker was "excited and nervous" at the chandelier-lined blue carpet for the premiere of Sex and the City 2 Monday night.

It's a "once in a lifetime experience," Parker said as she met throngs of fans lining the street outside New York's Radio City Music Hall.

Even with the rest of the leading ladies, Kristin Davis (in Jean Desses for Decades), Kim Cattrall (in Naeem Khan), and Cynthia Nixon (in Carolina Herrera) rocking glamorous gowns as well, Parker, insists that the success of SATC isn't just about the clothes.

"You can't hang your hat on fashion forever," she said. "I think people want a substantive story that is meaningful whether they relate or not, and they want to hear women talk about things that are important to them besides their desire to wear a pretty dress. [What's] so unique about these characters is that you can do both."

Feuding on set? The ladies of Sex and the City say it's a lovefest working together – usually.

"Things just have to be explosive for no other reason than for people's imaginations," Kim Cattrall, 53, tells the June issue of Marie Claire "The chemistry among the four of us is very strong."

Kristin Davis laughs off rumors that she snubbed Cattrall at dinner one night while they were filming the SATC sequel, due in theatres May 27. "[One tabloid story] said Kim and I would eat in the restaurant and not sit together," the actress, 45, says. "The story was that we don't like each other. Ridiculous!"


While the fab four dispel any reports they can't stand each other, they don't deny there has been some tension over the years – just like any busy office.
