Parker angers owners of the townhouse that was Carrie Bradshaw’s in Sex and the City with an unauthorized photo shoot for her shoe line SJP. Bradshaw places her shoes on the stoop of the townhouse under a sign posted by the owners stating “Do NOT go on staircase please”. Source:
The owners are up in arms as they deal with relentless tourists, and SJP has ignored their requests for an explanation on how she could endorse the shoot, even though ‘no trespassing’ signs are posted. SJP used their house during the years of filming, and now won’t acknowledge that she and her company used the steps and facade, this time without permission, to promote her shoe line.
Parker accepts the ALS challenge and nominates Joan Rivers and Kim Kardashian.
Parker serves as a bridesmaid for her friend and employee, Melinda Relyea for her marriage to James Kearns at First Presbyterian Church in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Its wedding day for Melinda! My bridesmaid dress, stretching, releasing wrinkles and then a quick disco nap before heading towards church and a very joyous day and night. X sj
Seacrest interviews Parker during On Air With Ryan Sacrest and questions her about where she got her fashion sense.
I grew up with a mother who had great appreciation for beautiful things. We could afford almost nothing, but she was very industrious and clever. We were always like the poorest family in the nicest neighborhood and we would go to church tag sales and buy things for like a dollar, so we had really lovely things, but they didn’t come to us in the typical way.
Seacrest interviews Parker during On Air With Ryan Seacrest asks if there would ever be a Sex In The City 3.
Not in the near future. We might find that its the right time to tell a third and perhaps last story.
Parker appears on the cover of the June 2010 issue of Glamour UK magazine. She talks about motherhood and everything she knows about fashion with the magazine.
I want to be a great mother, and I want to feel good when I’m at work. But it’s hard.
The second Sex and the City film premieres in the U.S. The film follows Carrie Bradshaw and her friends on a vacation to Dubai. Parker tells People
I think people want a substantive story … and they want to hear women talk about things that are important to them besides their desire to wear a pretty dress. [What’s] so unique about these characters is that you can do both.
Parker and Broderick welcome twin daughters Marion and Tabatha, who were born to a surrogate mother. Parker tells People magazine:
It’s the most perfectly overwhelming experience.
Parker plays Meredith Morton, the invading girlfriend, in this dramedy directed by Thomas Bezucha. When the favorite son brings his uptight, corporate girlfriend home for the holidays, the Stones disapprove and conspire to make her feel unwelcome amid their free-spirited ways. Co-starring Diane Keaton, Dermot Mulroney, Rachel McAdams, Craig T. Nelson, Luke Wilson and Claire Danes.
I’ve never met anybody like Meredith, but it was also the fact that she was also this beautiful—I love the way that she was written, but larger piece was equally important. It’s fine to have a great part, but not so fine to have a great part in a mediocre script. This was a double whammy in a great way.
Parker appears on the cover of People to discuss spending more time with her child and why she quit Sex and the City.
Having a child changes you. Before him, I would have sacrificed myself completely for my work. After him, she didn’t even want to sacrifice giving a bedtime bath. You cross the threshold of your home, and if your baby is awake, you drop everything and run. You could be exhausted, upset, discouraged, disappointed. And you see him and it just changes
Parker gives her thoughts on the last show of HBO’s Sex and the City in an interview with O Magazine.
What a hard decision it was to end the show! I kept asking myself, How’s the party faring? And how am I faring? Right now the party’s in full swing, and I hope the audience feels the same. But I don’t want to crawl across the finish line with bloodied hands. And as scary as it is to leave—and as lucrative as it would be to stay—sometimes you have to do what’s risky.
Parker and Broderick get married Broderick in lower Manhattan,. Parker wears a black wedding gown. She later says she regrets the decision not to wear white:
I was too embarrassed to get married in white, and both Matthew and I were reluctant to have people pay so much attention to us. Which is ridiculous, because that’s when you can relish the attention, when it’s natural.
