When it comes to The CW's "The Carrie Diaries," it sounds like we should consider Sarah Jessica Parker unimpressed.
The 47-year-old actress, who played the original Carrie Bradshaw on HBO's "Sex and the City" for six seasons (and two movies), told fashion and shopping website Net-a-Porter.com that she's not particularly loving The CW's new "SATC" prequel series.
"I'm not sure," Parker responded when asked what it feels like to see Bradshaw back on the small screen, this time played by 19-year-old AnnaSophia Robb.
(Robb stars in the series as a high-school-aged Carrie Bradshaw in the '80s, as based on the book from "Sex and the City" writer Candace Bushnell.)
"You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity," Parker continued. "[Robb] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about it, but it’s… odd.”
As for what "Sex and the City's" legacy might be on TV - aside from that "odd" prequel - Parker's more hesitant.
“I think it certainly encouraged women to share more candidly," she said. "I don't know if it empowered women. I hesitate to say whether we were the pioneers or whether we gave voice to something that was there, but I recognize there was a connection."
Hello! I really like this blog. Please tell me – from where do you have information for ths post?
I really like your blog. You write about very interesting things. Thanks for all your tips and information.
There's no way in hell that this cute girl AnnaSophia Robb would ever grow up to be the horse face that is SJP.
Interesting point. I think we need to see before and after nude photos of both actresses in order to make a final decision.
the gosselin blues
we received what we needed....you can monitor her 24/7 now...she has no respect for her boyfriend or the people who go see him...do NOT want too be part of this piece of trash person.
as we have witnessed she is worse when he is not around–
Fran thanks you Kate and why because your embarassment moves foward for all too see.
its important everyone know how talented she is and now everyone knows

people who pass around movies of strangers?
Nudity, profanity, and unrestricted discussion of adult topics are essential to the core of SITC. It can't be done on CW. I haven't watched. Most of my friends loved SITC, but i don't know anybody who's watched the prequel.
And those of you making rude comments about her appearance.... karma is only a hateful if you are....
and goofing on other also that we do not see?
her personality sucks also.
I never watched SJP's show, and I haven't seen this new one. Really not my thing. My question would be, who picked that picture out? It's really not very flattering.
she's not a loser wife by any stretch, she is a career woman and can handle a career at the same time...she is not a disgrace like kate gosselin is. SJP is what we call a great wife too matthew unlike kate gosselin who is a disgrace and a poor example to women. sorry kate you deserve it.
A whole family of Mexicans could stand under her nose when it rains and none of them would get wet.
Is that a toucan in the picture? I knew toucans had long noses but jeez. Maybe it's a skinny elephant.
takes the makeup off when she's taking care of business like late tonight when she is reading...
I agree with SJP. They've already screwed up the story line. In SATC, Carrie's father left when she was a child and in this show, it's the mother who's not there.
I love SJP and think she's a wonderful person, it's just sad to see all the years of smoking she did had such a dramatic affect on the skin on her face. I was shocked to see her appearance in the last SATC movie. Either they caked the makup on or she had work done, but she just didn't look natural at all. Now that I think about it, both Carrie and Samantha could have used a lot less makeup. I get there was almost a decade between the show and the final movie, but good lord....
She's a putz
ur all retarted.........."oh she looks like a horse" thats so old..........shes beautiful, love her, and u guys think ur so funny and im shaking my head like how stupid are these kids?!?!?!?\
I, for one, would not kick SJP out of bed (unless she brought Ferris Buehler with her). She's one, hot, middle-aged woman.
you effed up again
you came and you gave without taking, and I sent you away. You kissed me and stopped me from shaking, and I need you today...
i read at 4am also...maybe i'll read from this masheen at times.
Mandy? what r u talking bout? Im "EFFED" up again?
A total ratings killer
I am assuming from some of these commenst you are either 12yrs old or extremely unhappy with your own lives...get a grip! I watch one episode of the show and thught it was awful she does not have the same personality of Carrie Bradshaw and on SIC Carries father left her and her mother when she was young. It won't last there is no chemistry on the show.
i love SJP and her relationship with Mathew–She never makes him look bad especially with a career like his.
as famous as they both are nobody knows a d*m thing about their personal life...good job SJP to you and
your marriage too Mathew (Broderick)
i find the dynamic odd.
SJP is a better woman then some of you are.....SJP never talks about matthew's "preferences" to the public and why because she know he has a career and would NEVER EVER do that to him.
She should have spent that $40,000 a plate Obama donation on her nose!
go look at your own noses
I agree. Horses are cool. But SJP, "why the long face?"
everyone we know is aware of who is in charge of the hate game on these blogs - she made her mark
I like SJP. What did she ever do to cause so much hate?
and looks like a girl
yea and that mole where did that come from
Mommy. That horse faced lady is scaring me again.
Hurry up and hook that horse faced mule up to the wagon. We got work to do.
The horse wants an apple.
Neeeeeiiiggghh. Naaaaaay. Pttttttth. It's a horsey.
