The rumors are true: The CW is officially moving forward with "Sex and the City" prequel " The Carrie Diaries "! According to The Hollywood Reporter , Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage ("Gossip Girl") will produce, while "SATC" scribe Amy B. Harris will write and direct the TV series, based on Candace Bushnell's YA novel, which follows Carrie Bradshaw during her senior year of high school. With two books in the series, and another two slated for publication, producers will no doubt have plenty of source material to work with. We, for one, are cautiously optimistic about this would-be series (having a former "SATC" writer on staff certainly bodes well), but casting the right Carrie will be key. I mean, it's going to be hard to fill Carrie Bradshaw's well-worn Manolos. But we think there are a few actresses up for the task. Keep reading after the jump to see our picks for the future sex columnist! Elizabeth Olsen Elizabeth's name has been mentioned in the same breath as "The Carrie Diaries" ever since rumors began swirling this summer that it could be adapted into a movie . Even though it's now headed to the small screen, the Olsen twins' little sis would still be a great fit. With all the buzz surrounding her upcoming "Martha Marcy May Marlene," we know this chica 's got the acting chops to nail the fashionable future Manhattanite. Emma Roberts Another actress once rumored for a role in the film adaptation was Emma Roberts, who'd been eyed to play sarcastic ginger Miranda Hobbes. But we think Emma'd be a much better fit for a young Carrie—what with her blond locks, petite frame and plucky personality. Emily Osment She may be best known as Hannah Montana's BFF, but we have a feeling Emily Osment is ready for more mature things, and what better way to take your career in a slightly more adult direction than signing on for a sexy CW series? Lilly Truscott, who? Who do you think should play Carrie in "The Carrie Diaries"?

The Samantha Jones in both the TV series and movie versions admits she would quite happily tell Patricia Field if she didn't feel comfortable in something and didn't want to wear it. Read more.
Whether or not you succumbed to the idea of spending $12 to sit in a theater for a whopping 2 1/2 hours to see the latest "Sex And The City" film, it's not hard to admit that before they started taking things to the big screen, Carrie and her gang of gal-pals had a good thing goin'. After six successful seasons on HBO , a syndication deal on TBS , feminist praise and backlash, and a notoriously expensive wardrobe budget, HBO 's Sex and the City easily has become TV's ultimate say-anything girls' guide to single life in the big city. Even though the women were well into their 30s and beyond (and fabulous), the show approached a slew of issues that women of nearly all ages could relate to in some way, including friendship, romance, aging, professional life... and of course, plenty of shoes. In honor of the show's good 'ol days, and in response to the fact that whenever I'd try to watch it on TBS it was never an episode I wanted it to be, I've assembled a list of Sidereel's 10 favorite episodes, in no particular order. Trust me, this was an incredibly different choice, and it even sparked some heated debate between my friends and I, but I believe the finished product is a well-rounded selection of laughs, tears, and good times that Carrie would approve of. Samantha might be disappointed (nudity was not part of my criteria), but hey, as their sequel film proved, you can't please everybody! 1. Season 6, Episode 20: An American Girl in Paris (part deux) Synopsis: After Petrovsky leaves Carrie behind for a second time in Paris, she begins to wonder if she's doomed to follow in Juliet's footsteps. Why We Love It: Even if you weren't a Big fan, the series closer was one of the sweetest ways to end a show in a way that still managed to be subtle and open-ended. I like to pretend this is where things truly ended; unfortunately, Hollywood had to step in and trample all over it. 2. Season 2, Episode 2: The Awful Truth Synopsis: Charlotte gets a puppy, Henry, in lieu of a perfect man. Miranda talks dirty with her lover. Why We Love It: As the token awkward one, Miranda exemplifies all the embarrassing moments that are painful yet hilarious to watch, as long as it's not happening to you! Her attempt to talk dirty in bed was one of the most entertainingly awkward moments of the whole series. 3. Season 6, Episode 7: The Post-It Always Sticks Twice Synopsis: Carrie is fuming after Berger dumps her via Post-It note. Why We Love It: A Post-It? Seriously? This episode deals with one of the most notorious TV break-ups of all time. And while we know we should never bad-mouth our ex to his friends, it was pretty satisfying watching Carrie do it! 4. Season 4, Episode 2: The Real Me Synopsis: Carrie is asked to be a model on a fashion show mixing real models and real people. Why We Love It: Everyone knows Carrie's fashionably fabulous, but this is her chance to really work it! Plus, although we hate to see her stumble, it reminds us that while she does somehow manage to afford designer duds, she is just a normal gal who doesn't feel at home on a runway! 5. Season 3, Episode 2: Politically Erect Synopsis: Carrie eventually consummates her relationship with Bill Kelley, but is put out when he reveals a fantasy of his. Why We Love It: One great thing about Carrie's promiscuity is that it makes for some pretty hilarious hook-up stories. And 2 words for all you Mad Men fans: Roger Sterling! 6. Season 5, Episode 5: Plus One is the Loneliest Number Synopsis: Carrie's single status speaks volumes at her book-release party; Miranda approaches the dating scene as a single mother; Charlotte has an unexpected visitor. Why We Love It: It shows that even Carrie ends up dateless sometimes, but that it shouldn't put a damper on your proudest moments! I wish all taxi drivers were nice enough to buy you hot dogs when you're feeling down. 7. Season 6, Episode 6: Hop, Skip, and a Week Synopsis: Charlotte gets unwanted attention at the synagogue; Samantha's PR machine works a little too well; Miranda feels the pressure of being a lawyer and a single mother. Why We Love It: Harry proposes to Charlotte in a totally unexpected PDC (public display of cuteness). It gets me every time, especially with the pretty twinkly music in the background. 8. Season 4, Episode 10: Belles of the Balls Synopsis: Carrie goes to the country with Aidan and ends up accidently inviting Mr. Big when Willow breaks up with him. Why We Love It: This amazingly awkward episode further solidifies Aidan's status as "Too Good For Carrie!" Who else would put up with her ex totally crashing their romantic getaway? 9. Season 3, Episode 11: Running with Scissors Synopsis: Carrie's reignited affair with Mr. Big puts a increasing strain on her relationship with Aidan, and she meets Natasha again in the worst of circumstances: while letting herself out of the Bigs' home. Why We Love It: We knew it had to happen some time, and when Natasha finally catches Carrie red-handed, it's a dramatic sequence of events that gets my heart racing just thinking about it! 10. Season 4, Episode 8: My Motherboard, My Self Synopsis: Carrie freaks out when her computer crashes because her whole life was on the computer. Everybody starts telling her that she should have backed up her work. Why We Love It: AHHH! As people who practically live on our computers, we totally feel you, Carrie. What. a. Nightmare.

In celebration of Sex and the City 2 (and the return of my beloved Aidan Shaw to the Manolo-wearing, Cosmopolitan-sipping world of Carrie & Co.), BuzzSugar created a video montage of "10 Sexy Flings" the ladies had over the course of the series (after the jump). Looking back, many recognizable faces passed through Carrie's Upper East Side doors. Can you remember each one? Any surprises? (Hello, Bradley Cooper!) My most memorable: Mad Men's John Slattery (as the politician with interesting bathroom habits), Vince Vaughn (as Keith Travers, faux-presenting Matt Damon), and David Duchovny (the literally committed ex-boyfriend). Of course Carrie wasn't the only one having fun, and Miranda's fling with "public guy" (Will Arnett) and hot neighbor Doctor Robert (Blair Underwood) make the cut as well. What, no Jim Gaffigan on the toilet seat? Watch the video of the many men of Sex and the City after the jump, and let us know who you think was left out. Read more and video
It's an iconic scene: Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker's character in Sex and the City, sitting at her Mac computer and typing away her daily insights. Well, guess what? That Mac is now a PC. Who knows what went on behind the scenes, but Cnet noted that Carrie's bedroom looks a bit different in the new movie Sex and the City 2. Product placements are rarely worth mentioning, but seeing Parker's character in her room, pining away about life stories, sitting so memorably in front of that Mac computer, was one of the most iconic parts of the long-running HBO series. The decision to replace such a pivotal product to a Windows-based HP PC could not have been a flippant one. Most likely, HP probably doled out a lot of cash to get the spot. Sarah Jessica Parker stars in a new HP commercial so HP must be invested in this somehow. It will be quite a shock for devotees of the series to see the noticeable set piece change. I wonder what Steve Jobs would say. Source: TGDAILY

New Line Cinema has shed light on the hope for third " Sex and the City " film. Despite report which mentioned that they have expanded the franchise again by planning "Sex and the City 3", Digital Spy claimed the studio's executives have denied the news as their representative said, "This is not true." On Wednesday, January 27, The Sun came out with report that the second sequel to this Sarah Jessica Parker-starring film has been worked on though "Sex and the City 2" has yet to be released. "There is also a third movie on the go. It's under wraps for publicity reasons," a source told the U.K.-based site. The third film was additionally reported being shot back to back in order to outrun the rapid aging of the franchise's stars. "It makes sense to film the second and third movies back to back. The characters will look a lot younger on screen when the third movie is out in a couple of years," the source further claimed. "They're keen to look as young as possible because that movie will be their last. They want to go out on a high." Taking place two years after the end of the first movie, "Sex and the City 2" will see Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw Preston and her friends bring their glamor lives to a place that is far away from their New York City homes. However, official plot for the film has not been unveiled yet. Beside Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis will return to the upcoming movie to reprise their roles as Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbes Brady, and Charlotte York Goldenblatt respectively. Featuring a cameo by Miley Cyrus, this drama comedy is set to be dropped in U.S. theaters on May 28. Source Here
