And it’s not what any of us expected...
Sex and the City fans have been rejoicing as former star Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes) announced her plans to officially run for Governor of New York this week.
Following the Sex and the City feud between SJP and Kim Cattrall, we needed some good news from Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.
And it looks like Cynthia has provided it – running against Andrew Cuomo in the primaries later this year.
While it’s not the Sex and the City reunion we expected, team SATC have been quick to get behind the 51-year-old, voicing their support.
The first to make her support known was Kristin Davis, the Charlotte York to Cynthia’s Miranda Hobbes on the HBO series.
‘I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair chance and a good education,’ tweeted Kristin. ‘I know that she would be an excellent governor! I’m excited to support someone I have known for 20 years to be one of the most intelligent and caring people in my life.’
While the show’s male cast were also quick to show their support, the silence from SJP and Kim Cattrall was deafening, with fans accusing them of not supporting their former cast mate.
‘Kim, what do you think of Cynthia running?!’ Victoria Batezel tweeted yesterday, prompting a response from Cattrall herself – but it wasn’t exactly an endorsement.
‘I support & respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices’, tweeted Kim.
There’s still no word from Sarah Jessica Parker, but that doesn’t mean that Cynthia has been without support from her former SATC pals.
‘I cant think of anyone who’s more prepared, more caring, more educated on the issues and more READY than @cynthiaenixon,’ tweeted Willie Garson, or as we known him, Stanford Blatch.
He continued: ‘An educated, concerned, positive candidate, filled with empathy, not out for personal gain, who cares about SERVING, nor has spent life as a CAREER politician? We can pretty much ALL agree on this one…’
