Designer Manolo Blahnik never wanted to be a "celebrity designer," but after years of having his name bandied about in reverential tones on "Sex and the City" that's exactly what happened.
Blahnik tells the Sunday Telegraph, "If people talk to me about 'Sex and the City' I get sick ... It becomes too much and I don't feel comfortable."
Oh, it's hard to be a success.
Adding insult to injury, if it weren't for the first "Sex and the City" movie, Blahnik may have gone under last year.

So will "Sex and the City 2" fuel Blahnik's hatred? Maybe, but for entirely different reasons. Word from the set is that Carrie Bradshaw has switched her allegiance to the red soles of Christian Louboutin.
