Author of Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell, as observed that modern dating has apparently led women to be "angrier". Has she heard of the #MeToo movement?

"Women have the same complaints about men as they did before, except their complaints are much harsher now," the bestselling writer told The Sunday Times regarding dating apps.

"They seem angrier. The rejection and the uncertainty of online communication, it hurts people's souls. It seems to be emotionally destabilising."

Bushnell was famous for her column for The New York Observer back in the 1990s, which was adapted into the Sex and the City novels.

The books led to a hit HBO series starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon as four women in New York City, navigating romances, friendships, and womanhood.

The series ran from 1998 to 2004, and the success led to two films in 2008 and 2010 being released. The Carrie Diaries and Lipstick Jungle, also penned by the 60-year-old, were also adapted into TV shows.

Bushnell has been dating Jim Coleman for two years, and has commented on the two key things she's learned about finding a partner;

"At this age you want someone to be nice, you don't want someone who's critical or demeaning," she told The Sunday Times.

"It feels like when one is younger there can be this competition between partners. Maybe that's part of the sexual attraction, but that kind of stuff just doesn't work when you get older."

She added: "I think romance is something where you're not in a rush to get to the end. It's just about enjoying each other's company. It's doing things together."

She's got some pearls of wisdom, we must say. Some of the most iconic quotes from the hit show from Carrie Bradshaw are still applicable to the complex dating lives of women today.

Samantha Jones' groundbreaking attitudes to sex were also controversial at the time, but arguably educated an entire generation of women on sexual positivity.

Last month when American talk-show host Wendy Williams addressed the rumours that Kim Cattrall is getting a spin-off series about Samantha Jones, Kim herself added fuel to the fire by tweeting "Fingers x's."

The actress then later responded to a video posted on Twitter and said, "Can't WAIT 2 get back 2 the serious business of making u all laugh (sic)!"

Of course, the whole Sex and the City world went berserk at the idea of a spin-off show, but nothing more was said about it… until now.

Kim took to Instagram last night to share her first ever Boomerang and captioned it, "My 1st Boomerang, Honey! Channelling Ms Samantha Jones once again…."

Her make-up artist then shared a similar picture on IG, telling his fans that he's working on a "secret project" with Kim.

Could this be it? Are we finally going to get a show dedicated to Samantha Jones?!

We think it's time to plan a viewing party, ladies.


When you look back on Sex and the City, a lot of questions need to be asked.

For example, how did Carrie afford that NYC apartment with only a weekly/monthly sex column? How did she afford all of those shoes as well?! And how on earth did Kim Cattrall not get her own show?!

After all was said and done with SATC, Kim's character Samantha totally came out on top. Compared to Carrie, Samantha was ahead of her career game, didn't take sh*t from anybody (including guys) and was just an all-round badass.

yes sex and the city agreed yeah agree

So, you can only imagine how excited we were to hear that Kim is in talks to have a SATC spin-off.

Throughout the years there has been numerous rumours of another series, and indeed another movie, but they went away as fast as they came.

However, this time around, Kim gave a little hint on Twitter that this spin-off might actually happen.

After US talk show host, Wendy Williams posted a video on Twitter stating that "reportedly Kim Cattrall is in talks with HBO to reprise her role as Samantha Jones," Kim saw and simply tweeted, "Finger's x'd."

2018 will mark the 20th anniversary of the show, so hopefully this will all work out. Our fingers are definitely crossed.
