Sex and the City and the gossips

The story was about four best friends who went to thick and thin together.

However, after the last episode of the show, Kim decided to quit because instead of showing the friendships between the four ladies, the show was being too focused on Sarah Jessica’s emotional breakup of the character.

Nevertheless, this Monday, Sarah announced the return of Sex and the City. Despite the announcement, Kim has repeatedly told that she won’t be continuing the series. So, the show is set to continue without Kim Cattrall.

Kim has reacted to this by recently liking a tweet about “putting herself first” by snubbing the Sex and the City reboot.
