"Sex and the City" creator Candace Bushnell recently told The New Yorker she's "startled" by some of the decisions made on " And Just Like That。”

在接受采访纽约客的贾·托伦蒂诺published Wednesday, Bushnell discussed her thoughts on the "Sex and the City" reboot, which premiered on HBO Maxlast December. Bushnell wrote the newspaper column and1996年的书that inspired the popular TV series.

"I'm really startled by a lot of the decisions made in the reboot," Bushnell, 63, told The New Yorker. "You know, it's a television product, done with Michael Patrick King and Sarah Jessica Parker, who have both worked with HBO a lot in the past. HBO decided to put this franchise back into their hands for a variety of reasons, and this is what they came up with."

When Tolentino says she gathers that Bushnell doesn't see herself in "And Just Like That," Bushnell responds: "Not at all."

"I mean, Carrie Bradshaw ended up being a quirky woman who married a really rich guy," she adds. "And that's not my story, or any of my friends' stories. But TV has its own logic."

One of themain differences fans noticed in the reboot was the stride towards diversity。In the reboot, actor Sara Ramirez portrayed Che Diaz,a non-binary Irish-Mexican podcast host and comedian.Ramirez's character forms a bond withMiranda Hobbes, played by Cynthia Nixon.The series also cast凯伦·皮特曼(Karen Pittman)饰演Nya Wallace博士。

当被问及批评“性与城市”因其缺乏多样性而面临的批评时,布什内尔告诉《纽约客》,“那是人们当时的投入方式”。

布什内尔说:“我自己的世界唯一的白人吗?不,当然不是 - 那不是纽约。”“但是,对于节目,这就是人们那样的事情,这就是电视中的人们的方式。我认为没有人有意识地试图对此感到讨厌;他们真的没有想到。”

During the interview, Bushnell also noted that Carrie stopped feeling like her long before "And Just Like That" aired.

Asked by Tolentino at which point she felt that way, Bushnell replied: "When the character of Carrie sleeps with Mr. Big after he's married to somebody else — that's when I felt like the character's becoming something other." Carrie's affair with Mr. Big begins in season three of "Sex and the City," which aired in 2000.
