This is going to change the way you view Sex and the City FOREVER. All the crazy storylines? They all happened to someone in real life, either to the writers or to someone they knew firsthand.
Let that sink in for a minute…
The dude Charlotte sleeps with who gets a bad case of Tourette’s every time he climaxes? “Fcking bitch, fcking whore” etc? Yeah, he exists.
The dude who goes down on Miranda, er, ‘back there?’ “Is this on the menu now?” Yeah, he exists.
The dude who calls Samantha’s boobs her “titty witties”? Yeah, he exists.
The politician who wanted to pee on Carrie? Yeah, he exists.
Cynthia Nixon (aka Miranda) spilled the beans in a new interview with IMDb Asks*:
"They had a rule in the writing that they couldn't put anything in an episode that didn't literally happen to someone in the writer's room or someone they knew firsthand," said Cynthia. "It couldn't be, like, my father's brother's sister's shoe repair guy heard once that, you know. So the outlandish physical, sexual things that happened—they really did happen."
How awkward are we going to feel next time we’re on a SATC binge and we realise all the batshit crazy stuff actually happened to some poor shmuck?!
Meh, we’ll get over it…
