Sex and the City’s leading lady, Sarah Jessica Parker, has finally come forward to clear the air about her luke-warm response to co-star Cynthia Nixon’s bid for New York Governor.
On screen, the ladies of SATC were each other’s most fervent supporters. It’s no surprise that when Ms. Nixon came out swinging against incumbent Gov. Cuomo, fans of the show anxiously awaited her co-stars’ responses.
Initially, Parker was approached by Page 6 when she offered this questionable answer to the reporter’s probe:
“Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls. I look forward to talking to her about her New York state gubernatorial bid.”
Social media went ablaze with commentary from angry fans of the show, which caught Parker’s attention. She took to Instagram today to clarify her vague non-endorsement. Following a short list of Nixon’s qualifications, Parker posted:
“A dear friend… Running for Governor of our great state.
My sister on and off screen, you have my love, support and vote.”
Nixon quickly took to her own Twitter page saying simply, “It means so much.”
She also has the support of Kristen Davis, the third lady of the famous franchise. After Nixon’s announcement, Davis was quick to congratulate her via twitter, writing, “I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair change and a good education. I know that she would be an excellent Governor!”
With Parker’s official endorsement under her belt, the only former cast mate Nixon is missing is the estranged Kim Cattrall, who said simply, “I support & respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices.”
Considering Cattrall’s ongoing feud with Parker, Nixon probably can’t count on her vote. We’re anxious to see if she can win over the fifth lady of SATC, New York City herself, and secure the nomination over Cuomo this spring.
