Stanford's Grandmother


Carrie is presented to Stanford Blatch's adored, classy grandmother, but comes to the conclusion his being gay cancels all his qualities on her bottom line and probably in her last will. Miranda is losing her self-respect after many rejections, but turns to blind dating - just to walk out on the first man who's still willing to give it a go when they meet. Samantha tries everything to turn Bernie Turtletaub, a Wall street guru but society laughing stock with viciously bad breath the girls met at the "singles" table at a posh wedding, into a fashionable date, but can even the best PR expert's make-over make up for his intrinsic lack of charm?

Showing Stanley's grandmother
8 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

One of Carrie's friends,Brooke,is about to marry. After a life full of rich and famous men, and being treated like a star, she finally chose a guy to spend her life. But is she happy? Carrie starts to think about this when she says that ''is best to marry someone who likes you more then you like the person''. Samantha,after trying to go out with a guy who humiliates her, gives a chance for The Turtle, a guy who was a good investor but had a bad breath, to go out with her.(But only if she helps him to change his style!) Charlotte starts to be addicted to the vibrator she bought with Mirand and Carrie, avoiding going out with guys. Carrie starts to be worried when MR. Big says that he doesn't want to be married again,making her spends lots of hours only thinking in if it is worthwhile to be with someone who doesn't want to marry. She and Stanford even imagined a way of getting Stanford's grandmother 's inheritance: If she marries Stanford, they maybe could be a chance to have it all.
