Once again, this three named actress continues to amaze with her ability to make her own demands look like it is someone else causing all the issues in getting a third installment of a movie made.
Does anyone really think that trashed actress is indispensable to a third film? You don’t think they could find a niece or something and write the other person out?
It is all about the money demands of the three named actress.

“Sex and the City” director details Kim Cattrall drama, tension began over parity
“Sex and the City” executive producer Michael Patrick King recently appeared on the “Origins” podcast and spoke candidly about the drama between Kim Cattralland her co-stars. King, who also wrote and directed several episodes and the feature films, says tension between the cast became obvious early on in the show’s run. “Sex and the City” was designed and marketed from the beginning around Sarah Jessica Parker, who was the biggest name of the four central cast members after making a career as a movie star.
“The show doesn’t exist if Sarah Jessica wasn’t the blonde star of the show, that’s number one,” King told “Origins” host James Andrew Miller. “Kim was not at the height of her career, Kristin was under her in terms of notability, Cynthia was a theater actress and their contracts reflected that status.”
King said the initial parity between Parker and Cattrall is what drove a wedge between the actresses, one that was driven by Cattrall. “As the show progressed, the characters, everybody grew, it became a family,” King said. “Kristin, Cynthia, and Sarah Jessica became one group, and Kim never joined mentally. Kristin and Cynthia went in the light, they became those two ladies, they understood it was Sarah Jessica’s name — look at the posters.”
Cattrall never got comfortable playing support to Parker, King explained. As “Sex and the City” became a flagship series for HBO, Cattrall allegedly took issue with the fact Parker remained the selling point of the series’ marketing despite the character of Samantha’s growing popularity.
“Kim fought and said, ‘I’m everyone’s favorite,’” King said. “Sarah Jessica said, ‘Yeah, that’s why the show worked, you were certain people’s favorites, they loved you. Certain people loved Kristin and people liked Cynthia but you were the favorite and that’s why the show worked. That doesn’t mean you’re being punished.” – Source
