Sex and the City
CHICAGO – Carrie Bradshaw finally has her own shoe line. Sarah Jessica Parker – the actress who portrayed the footwear obsessed Carrie through six TV seasons and two movies with “Sex and the City” – has launched her own line of shoes. She introduced her “SJP Collection” in Chicago at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue on March 7th.
CHICAGO – Fans that were excited for the possibility of a third “Sex and the City” film may be disappointed at the news the movie will be put on hold. However, the fix to see Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda could still be filled.
CHICAGO – Those of you longing for a film version of “The Sopranos,” “Friends,” or “24” (all of which have been rumored at some point or another), should look no further than “Sex and the City 2,” which was recently released on Blu-Ray and DVD, for a cautionary tale. HBO’s “Sex and the City” was a fantastic comedy but both films based on it have been disastrous. Their only value is for filmmakers to learn what not to do with a creative property.
CHICAGO – Dance legend and actor Mikhail Baryshnikov stopped on point for the HollywoodChicago.com lens before meeting fans at the signing of his first book of dance photography entitled “Merce My Way” on Sept. 22, 2009 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
CHICAGO – “My Boys,” which is a set-in-Chicago television comedy series on TBS, recently began its second season. The popular comedy stars Jordana Spiro as P.J. Franklin. She’s a Chicago Sun-Times sports writer who filters her life through bonding with her male buddies.
Three of the “boys” – Michael Bunin (Kenny in the show), Kyle Howard (Bobby) and Reid Scott (Brendan) – were recently interviewed by HollywoodChicago.com.
CHICAGO – To its voracious universe of cult-following fans, it feels like a television marathon that spans an entire season. To everyone else who bats an indifferent eye at the religion that is “Sex and the City,” it may surprise you to find that all the glam and glitz has something even for you to learn, too.
