“If people talk to me about Sex and the City, I get sick…It’s sweet but it becomes too much and I don’t feel comfortable.

We love Manolo Blahnik; well, mostly we just love his shoes. We also love (more like obsess over) Sex and the City and all of our fave NYC gals, if you haven’t already noticed; therefore, a battle of words between the two is not exactly the kind of fight we’d like to get in the middle of.

The rumored tiffs between SJP and Kim Cattrall just may not be as juicy as this one…
