In case fans of Sex and the City were still unsure about the true feelings Kim Cattrall holds for her co-star and the show’s sometimes producer, Sarah Jessica Parker, wonder no more.
On Sunday morning, Australian time, Cattrall posted a blistering attack on Parker on her social media, in response to SJP’s condolences over the death of Cattrall’s brother, Chris, last week.
Former Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall has blasted Sarah Jessica Parker in the wake of the death of her brother, Chris Cattrall.
“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time,” Cattrall posted on Instagram.
My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.

In the caption, she went further: “My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
As if that wasn’t enough, Cattrall also linked to a New York Post article that outlined some of the festering animosity between the pair, whose strained relationship dates back to the filming of the series, which ran for six seasons, and two movies.
Although there has been continuous speculation about a third movie, the pair’s relationship has been a huge sticking point, leading to Parker floating the possibility of the film proceeding without Cattrall, whose character, Samantha Jones, would assumedly be somehow written out of the script.

It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall. At this time we ask for privacy but we want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time.
But the sudden death of Chris Cattrall, who was found dead in his home in Canada on February 4, has also brought the fued between the actresses to the fore.
On Thursday, Parker said at an event in New York City: “If somebody in your life, whether you’re in touch with them or not, is suffering for any reason, it’s involuntary that you want to convey condolences or sadness or just let someone know you’re thinking about them.”
Both Parker and another Sex and the City co-star, Cynthia Nixon, sent their condolences to Cattrall after she posted a tribute to her brother on Instagram.
“Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx,” Parker wrote.
Nixon wrote: “Hey Kim such awful news. So sorry to hear. Sending you love. XO.”
However, Cattrall made it clear she was only pleased to hear from Nixon, who played Miranda Hobbs in the series. Nixon apparently also called Cattrall with her wishes.
“Cynthia, hearing your voice meant so much to me. Thank you for reaching out. Love Kim #SexandtheCity.”
The article Cattrall linked in her post describes the blame directed at Cattrall after it was announced that the third film would not be made, as well as the friction between the Cattrall and Parker on-set.
