Sarah Jessica Parker has a lot to celebrate. News that the actor and producer's new series for HBO, Divorce, had been picked up broke the very same day she headed to Las Vegas to celebrate the opening of her Sjp pop-up shop with Zappos Couture. We caught up with her at the Sin City bash last night to congratulate her on the series - which she told us has been four years in the making - and grill her for more details. In the dramedy, Parker plays Frances, a woman whose husband calls off their marriage. "She's been married for 17 years to Thomas Haden Church, on the show," she told us, "and there's an event that happens in the pilot that, for her, really provokes a very serious sort of . . . She responds to it in a way that I think surprises even her." The series, Parker also suggests, will speak »
Thirteen years after "Sex and the City" ended its run, Sarah Jessica Parker has announced her return to HBO to explore another facet of modern womanhood. In a single-cam comedy called "Divorce," which just received an order to series from the premium cable network, Parker will play a woman flirting with the idea of ending her marriage when her husband discovers the affair she's having and initiates a separation.

The series will begin filming in New York this year. Fingers crossed that HBO will pick up its comedy projects with Sarah Silverman and Issa Rae too. [via THR]

Sure, it's not an aesthetic that everyone can wear, but at best, it broadened the scope of conventional styling and, at the very least, reaffirmed Manolo Blahnik's spot in luxury shoe history. Love it or hate it, Sarah Jessica Parker's Sex and the City persona challenged and inspired the style game. In true Carrie fashion, we must pose a few questions: Ten years post-satc, where are the true television trendsetters today?

Sarah Jessica Parker should probably try her hand at the lottery because she has the most amazing luck of all time.
