Big Loss! Chris Noth Doesn't 'Think There's Anything Left' for His Sex and the City Character
Much to Sex and the City fans’ chagrin, Chris Noth has made it clear that his run playing Mr. Big is finished.

“I don’t think there’s anything left for me to say about that,” Noth, 62, told Us Weekly at the premiere of Manhunt: Unabomber last week. “I want to tell other stories.”

Noth portrayed the suave, on-again-off-again boyfriend of Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Carrie Bradshaw from 1998–2010, including the HBO hit’s entire six-season run and in two films.

And Noth takes exception to how many lovers of the show think of Big, saying, “The thing that I don

'Sex and the City' Author Explains Why Carrie Bradshaw Would Not Have Ended Up With Big in Real Life

'Sex and the City' Author Explains Why Carrie Bradshaw Would Not Have Ended Up With Big in Real Life
The woman behind Sex and the City isn't so sure Carrie Bradshaw would've had her happy ending if she lived in the real world.

"Well, I think, in real life, Carrie and Big wouldn’t have ended up together," Candace Bushnell -- who wrote the books that inspired the beloved TV and movie series -- admits to The Guardian. "But at that point, the TV show had become so big. Viewers got so invested in the storyline of Carrie and Big that it became a bit like [Pride and Prejudice's] Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet."

Bushnell adds that Sex and the City became too much of a phenomena not to have Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth's characters end up together. "They had become an iconic couple and women really related to it. They would say, 'I found my Mr. Big' or, 'I

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 Episode 4 Review: The Etiquette of Friendship

No one does a dinner party like a Real Housewife.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 Episode 4 picked up right where we left off last week with Sonja arriving at Ramona's dinner party in the Hamptons ready to confront her.

It's Tinsley's first time meeting Dorinda, and she's nervous because she knows Sonja is fighting with her.

I don't think there's anything possibly free about staying at Sonja Morgan's house. So I think Tinsley may not be paying with benjamins, but she's definitely paying in other ways.

Dorinda Permalink: I don't think there's anything possibly free about staying at Sonja Morgan's house. So I... Added: April 26, 2017

It takes about 10 seconds for Tinsley to bring up her arrest and Dorinda almost chokes on her drink. She assures her that no one is going to judge her because everyone in his group has messed up, and she's not wrong.

3 Big Reasons There Should Be Another Season of 13 Reasons Why

13 Reasons Why has broken our hearts - and we should give it the chance to put them back together again. The Netflix series is an adaptation of Jay Asher's bestselling Ya novel, and while it was initially going to be a movie starring Selena Gomez, the plan shifted over the years and the project eventually found a home as a miniseries at Netflix. While it may have been talked about behind the scenes, a second season wasn't presented as a possibility . . . until the show was released and we needed to know: will Clay's story continue? While some fans passionately believe that there shouldn't be a second season, I'm on the other side of the fence. Not only should it at least be discussed as a possibility, but I'm rooting for Netflix to greenlight season two - here's why. 1. There Are So Many Cliffhangers The final episode of season one
