Actress Kim Cattrall refused Sex and the City co-star SJP’s condolences for her dead brother, Christopher. Cattrall posted on Instagram: “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker”.
We all knew that Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker aren’t best friends. On the contrary, the two have criticized each other over the years, despite the tight relationship that was linking their characters, Samantha Jones and Carrie Bradshaw in the famous HBO romantic comedy Sex and the City.
But the latest development gives us a feeling of how deep the antipathy goes between the two.
Kim Cattrall announced her brother’s death just one day after she shared on Instagram that he was missing. The 55-year-old had been missing for almost a week and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance were odd. According to Cattrall, Christopher’s home was unlocked and his cell phone and keys were still in the house.
Last Monday, the actress was announcing the sad news. “It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall”, she captioned a photo of her and her brother.
On Wednesday, February 7, she was thanking her fans and her Sex and the City colleagues for their “outpouring of support” for her and the entire family. She didn’t include Sarah Jessica Parker in the collective thanks, because on Saturday she posted a very explanatory message directed at her co-star.
“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker”, the caption reads. The 61-year-old actress also mentioned that her mother had asked her right that day: “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” She continued by writing to SJP that her reaching out is nothing but “a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.”
She added that she didn’t want Parker as her friend and she should stop exploiting her tragedy to restore her “nice girl” persona.
My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.

Cattrall also attached a link to a NY Post story from last year, in which Parker was indirectly making her into a villain for destroying the Sex and the City movie, by refusing to play Samantha in the third installment.
Cattrall commented on Parker’s reaction at the time. “I really think she could have been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is”, she told Piers Morgan.
