Desperate Housewives, Sex and the City Creators in Catty Feud
Would Carrie Bradshaw and the gang get along with the women of Wisteria Lane? TV fans will never know -- but the men who helped bring Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives don't exactly see eye to eye.
At the TCA in Pasadena, Calif. this week, Desperate Housewives' creator Marc Cherry made an obvious dig at the film Sex and the City 2 when asked if his ABC hit, currently in its final season, would ever become a feature film.
"I'm never sending these gals to Dubai. That's all I'm saying," Cherry sniffed of a major plot point from the big-screen sequel starring Sarah Jessica Parker. Further slamming the beloved HBO series, he added: "Sex and the City only did, I think, a total of something like 69 episodes. So I always thought that the advantage for them was that they had they hadn't really plumbed the depths of those characters."
Sex and the City creator Michael Patrick King responded to the dig on Wednesday. "I don't think [Cherry has] ever made a feature film, so I don't know if he knows what that entails, but the reality is my second movie made almost half a billion dollars. It's fine. The reality is I've moved on from that. I'm doing a new show," he said of smash hit 2 Broke Girls. "It's the number one comedy."
"It doesn't matter," he quipped of the so-called feud. "Here's what happens: You create something in the moment that you feel will be good, and then. . . people's reactions to it or people referencing it years later, it's a compliment."
