Quotes

[first lines]
Carrie: [narrating voice over] The most powerful woman in New York is not Tina Brown, or Diane Sawyer, or even Rosie O'Donnell. It's the hostess at Balzac, which had overnight become the only restaurant that mattered. And we were there to celebrate the moment.

Money And Sex
2 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Neville Morgan, a famous artist, visits Charlotte's gallery and invites her out to his Connecticut home. Carrie is introduced to a handsome French architect, who pays her for sex. Skipper confesses to Carrie that he's becoming hooked on Miranda. At his studio, Morgan shows Charlotte his new works, and asks her to pose for him, which creates the question of whether her awe of him as an artist will outweigh her modesty.

Despite of not liking the storyline about a woman getting paid for sex,I still found it entertaining considering that it showed the relationship of money and sex and how both are closely related.It could have been better if it presented a different story of how both are connected instead of having Carrie act like a prostitute.
