Whether Ms. Parker was researching a “college years” installment of Read More
Things that won't die
Last night during The New York Observer‘s foray into the studios of Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live we actually learned something. (Incredible, when dealing with a reality television roundups.) During the after-hours show, Mr. Cohen asked actress/comedian Sandra Bernhard (via a reader’s query) if the rumors were true that she was in competition to play Samantha in Sex And the City.

While the Sex and the City prequel film is still up in the air, rumors today abound that the CW will be coming to rescue young Americans from having to think about relationships in anything other than metaphors about chocolate. Think: a TV adaptation of The Carrie Diaries, Candace Bushnell’s teen tale of the iconic Bradshaw during her senior year of high school.

“Meg Ryan really fucked up a lot of people’s relationships,” I was saying to my best friend, Seth. “I mean, back when she still had her human face.”
“Billy Crystal has just as much blame,” Seth replied. He reached for a canapé. We were at a cocktail party, and we’d parked ourselves by the kitchen. Read More
If you want to join us in the new romantic order, you must first accept this: You live in a postdating society.
There will be no dates.
There will be “nondates”–ambiguous drinks, overwrought g-chats, cheeks unexpectedly flushed over coffee with a co-worker. You will not have a boyfriend, but your inboxes will overflow with text Read More
British tabloids report–and take this with a grain of salt the size of Manhattan–that the Sex and the City film series (which all began with a column in the Observer) is to be rebooted, based on author Candace Bushnell’s teen novel The Carrie Diaries. Director Michael Patrick King is said to want Blake Read More
Since spending money is now considered the patriotic duty of those who are still employed, I hoofed it over to the Barneys Warehouse Sale the other day, confident in my ability to find, perhaps, a pair of Marc Jacobs flats that I could wear in the same way that politicians don flag lapel pins.
Last weekend, Sunday Styles’s Alex Williams explored a complaint that New Yorkers have had for as long as they have occupied the island: that the city is not what it used to be, that it’s no longer this because it’s becoming too much of that.
