There was always talk that Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker didn't get on during their Sex and the City days, although the two of them were always keen to shut down the rumours.

That seems to have changed drastically in the recent months, to say the least. Before you all start blaming Piers Morgan (more on him in a bit), the feud seems to have been reignited by Parker confirming in September 2017 that the third Sex and the City movie wouldn't be happening – and it's escalated from there.

Here's the timeline of everything you need to know about Samantha Jones vs Carrie Bradshaw since it came out into the open.

The preliminaries

In October 2016, Parker appeared on The Howard Stern Show to respond to the long-running rumours that there was a feud during the making of Sex and the City.

"It used to really confound me and really upset me because, you know, we were part of a family of Sopranos and nobody ever questioned the relationships of the men on that show, and no-one ever said to them, 'Did you hang out this weekend with each other?' or, 'Did you give each other Christmas presents?'," she reflected. (We're not sure whether she meant the Sex and the City stars were like the stars of The Sopranos, or like actual mobsters, or both.)

"Was every day perfect? Were people always desperately, hopelessly in love with each other? No, but this is a family of people who needed each other, relied upon each other and loved each other. The narrative of the ongoing catfight used to really upset me. It was usually about bad behaviour on the set and I take very seriously my reputation.

"I work really hard and I treat people well. I have a work ethic that's very meaningful to me, and it's based on the affection I feel for the people that I get to work with."

Round One

When Parker confirmed that Sex and the City 3 wouldn't be happening, she didn't namecheck Cattrall and just stated that it was "disappointing" to not get to tell the "beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story" they had planned.

Following the announcement, some tabloid reports put the blame at Cattrall's door and she wasn't having a bit of it, writing on Twitter: "The only 'DEMAND' I ever made was that I didn't want to do a 3rd film... & that was back in 2016."
