Andy Cohen has sided with his friend Sarah Jessica Parker as speculation rages about a decades-long feud with Kim Cattrall.
Last weekend, Kim told her former Sex and the City co-star ‘You are not my friend‘, after Sarah Jessica reached out to a bereaved Kim on Instagram following the death of her brother.
She furthermore said on Instagram: ‘I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker. 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.’
Now Watch What Happens Live host Andy, known for his close friendship with Sarah Jessica, has given his opinion on the situation.
Speaking on SiriusXM channel Radio Andy, the star said: ‘I thought it was fake.’
‘It’s a catfight of one from where I see it’
He furthermore added: ‘I was like, “There’s no way Kim Cattrall has posted this on her Instagram.” This is a women who is in the middle of grieving the loss of her brother, which is tragic and sad.’
He also added: ‘She accused SJP of exploiting a tragedy… She follows Kim on Instagram, Kim posted about her brother dying, and she expressed her condolences on the post … She posted it in a comment! I would not call that “exploiting a tragedy.” What was she supposed to do? Say something bad? I mean, I don’t understand.
‘I also don’t like it that people are characterizing this as a catfight. There’s only one person fighting here… I even kind of, admittedly, didn’t try to stir it up on Watch What Happens Live when Sarah was on, but I was like, “What do you think?” Sarah only said the nicest things about her… It’s a catfight of one from where I see it.’
Rumors of Kim and Sarah Jessica’s tense relationship date back to the early days of Sex and the City, which launched on HBO in 1998 and ran for six extremely successful seasons, followed by two tepidly-received feature films.
