Sarah Jessica Parker, haven't you had enough? Let me be the first to tell you that I was one of the original "Sex and the City fans." Yes. I'm not ashamed. I participated in girl's nights, where we drank and watched the show on HBO. I was one of those people who went to opening night of the first movie (I think...OK, that may or may not have happened), and I dutifully went to SATC2, knowing that the chances of it being horrible and sad were high.

And indeed, it was horrible. And sad. Samantha flailing around on the ground in Abu Dhabi, grabbing at her pile of spilled condoms while surrounded by racist interpretations of Arab men was the final, sputtering gasp of the franchise, and that's when we all knew it was over -- over like our ability to relate to what had become pathetic caricatures of characters we once loved.

But now, what's this? SJP has told the LA Times that she thinks there's still room for one more film:

"I would go back," said Parker, speaking to 24 Frames on the New York set of her new movie, the working-woman comedy "I Don't Know How She Does It." "I think there's one more story to tell. I know there is.... ...I'd definitely tell that [third] story, and I know Michael would do it right. But maybe not now. Maybe in five years, you know?" she said.

OY. Please, SJP, for the love of God and all that we once shared, let it go. In fact, you know what? This is going to hurt me more than it will hurt you, but...it's already gone.
