‘And Just Like That’ Explains Samantha’s Absence & What Happened Between Her & Carrie

The next chapter of ‘Sex and the City’ is one without Samantha. The ‘And Just Like That…’ premiere revealed what happened to Samantha and why she had a falling out with Carrie.

Ahead of And Just Like That…’s premiere, fans have been wondering: what’s going to happen to Samantha? Kim Cattrall decided not to reprise her iconic role in the new series, despite having been a core part of Sex and the City. And Just Like That… doesn’t kill Samantha off and doesn’t ignore her character whatsoever.

Where Is Samantha?

The series begins with Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda now in their 50s. While the trio is waiting for a table, they come across Bitsy von Muffling, who asks where Samantha is. “Oh, she’s no longer with us,” Charlotte replies, which makes Bitsy think Samantha is dead. Miranda quickly chimes in to note that Samantha is very much still alive. “She’s in London,” Carrie reveals. Samantha moved to the UK for work.

Later, Miranda and Carrie have a talk about Samantha. “You know, it Is kind of like she’s dead… Samantha,” Miranda says. “We never even talk about her.”

Carrie replies, “Well, what is there to say? I told her that because of, you know, what the book business is now, it just didn’t make sense for me to keep her on as a publicist. She said ‘fine’ and then fired me as a friend.”

Miranda doesn’t think Samantha “fired” Carrie as a friend. Carrie reveals that Samantha stopped returning her calls. “You know Samantha. Her pride got damaged,” Miranda tells Carrie. Carrie explains that she’s left voicemails asking Samantha to call her back so they can “fix” this. “Look, I understand that she was upset, but I thought I was more to her than an ATM,” Carrie adds.

Miranda says, “You are. She was embarrassed.” Carrie wonders if Miranda or Charlotte has spoken to Samantha at all. Miranda admits that they’ve texted and called but never heard back. Miranda thinks maybe if Carrie reached again that maybe they could all work things out. Carrie doesn’t have much hope for that since she’s texted Samantha multiple times and gotten no response. “I always thought the four of us would be friends forever,” Carrie admits.

Samantha Is There For Carrie After Big’s Death

The first episode ends with Big’s tragic death after a heart attack. The second episode features Carrie planning Big’s funeral. When she shows up before the service, Carrie finds beautiful white flowers draped over Big’s casket. However, she explicitly stated that she didn’t want any flowers. The funeral directors hand her a card that came with the flowers. “Love, Samantha,” the card read. Carrie decides to keep the flowers from Samantha.

Carrie tells Miranda and Charlotte that Samantha is the one who sent the flowers. There’s a look of hope on Miranda and Charlotte’s faces. Maybe they can all reconcile after all. Later, Carrie texts Samantha to thank her for sending the flowers. Samantha doesn’t immediately respond to Carrie. Carrie knows Samantha’s gesture is proof that Samantha still cares about her. All hope is not lost. New episodes of And Just Like That… will debut Thursdays on HBO Max.

Check out the trailer below:

Talk about star-studded, riiiiight?!

Phat Tuesdays features so many of today’s most famous comedians and personalities, including Anthony Anderson, Tichina Arnold, Nick Cannon, Dave Chappelle, Snoop Dogg, Cedric the Entertainer, Tiffany Haddish, Steve Harvey, Lil Rel Howery, Regina King, Jo Koy, Luenell, Flame Monroe, Jay Pharoah, Craig Robinson, JB Smoove, Chris Tucker, Kym Whitley, and more, and tells the unbelievable story of how Guy Torry moved mountains to launch an all-Black comedy night at The Comedy Store. What started as an experiment in ‘90s Los Angeles turned into a must-see, hilarious experience, elevating Black voices to have their turn on the stage. In addition to Torry and Hudlin, Byron Phillips also executive produces, along with Jeff Hasler, Brian Lovett, and Jeff Bumgarner for Original Productions, and Kelsey Grammer and Tom Russo for Grammnet Productions. Joshua Firosz, Darren Toon for Original Productions, and Jordan McMahon for Grammnet Productions serve as co-executive producers.

Loaded with exclusive interviews with comedians and celebrities who were there—either performing on stage or in the audience—and never-before-seen footage of legendary comedy sets from back in the day, Phat Tuesdays is the inspiring story of how a little experiment to help Black comedians following the tragedy of the 1992 LA riots turned into a triumphant must-see experience. The showcase regularly brought together people from all walks of life—icons and ex-cons, stars and starlets, pros and regular joes—for one purpose, laughter, and became the most popular comedy show in Hollywood during the ‘90s.

‘Phat Tuesdays’ arrives on Prime Video February 4th

Rachel Brosnahan Wears Open, Midriff Top With Nothing Underneath In Stunning Look—Photo

Rachel Brosnahan

Rachel Brosnahan, 31, is showing a different side to her buttoned-up character on ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ while promoting the show’s 4th season on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’.

Leave it to Rachel Brosnahan to prove rocking a midriff is classy — always! The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star stole the show in a stunning two-piece, blue print ensemble for her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 19 to promote the fourth season of her hit show. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native was snapped heading into the studio in her head-to-toe blues, but appeared to be feeling the opposite with her big smile and wave. Rachel sported a maxi skirt that grazed her ankles, revealing strappy, blue-suede pumps, while her taut tummy peaked out through her flowing top. Rachel completed the look with a mini blue bag in hand. Boom. Fashion icon.

However, not everyone always agreed with how Rachel presented herself, shockingly! The stylish star once shared that prior to breaking into show biz, she was told she’d have to change her appearance if she wanted to make it big. “Early on, you get a lot of feedback on auditions,” she explained at a 92nd Street Y Q&A in 2019. “People give it to you like it is [the] Bible, like it is truth,” she said. “I’ve been told so many times I had to change my hair and learn to do my makeup and ‘buy different clothes’ . . . It starts to get into your head.”  Nowadays, it looks like Rachel is making her own fashion bible, and topped with her talent, she is unstoppable, as this will definitely be another big year for the Emmy winner.

Along with returning as her Maisel character Midge, the actor will also be starring in the upcoming film Dead For a Dollar with Willem Dafoe, Christopher Waltz and Benjamin Bratt. Rachel also recently shared on Instagram that she has indeed been feeling fresh so far in 2022. “Fresh flowers. Fresh cut. Fresh face. Fresh fit. Did you know if you type fresh enough times in a row it doesn’t look like a real word anymore?” she wrote, then added, “Do your worst 2022.” 

2022 is definitely no match for Rachel! Like many TV and film productions, there was a delay in Mrs. Maisel’s filming in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Season 4 production finally got underway for season 4 last January in New York City. Fans have basically been waiting since the December 2019 announcement for this season. And we are here for it! Clearly, Rachel is too!

By now, everyone is aware of Antonio Brown’s departure from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the middle of a game. After he left, many blamed mental health and claimed people who care about AB should check on him. But honestly, in my opinion, AB has seemed more normal than ever during this whole situation.

The baller has been enjoying life while hitting NBA games, spending time with Kanye West, and just relaxing. He seems to show no signs of any mental breakdown or issues at all, it really seems like his coach disrespected him and told him to leave, so he did.

AB has already done the NELK podcast and opened up about the situation, but now, a preview has dropped of him on the I AM ATHLETE podcast with Brandon Marshall and, for some reason, Nick Young.

“Why every time something happens bad, or how someone reacts, ‘Aw, he’s crazy, there’s something wrong with his mental health,’” Brown said in the preview clip from the “I AM ATHLETE” show.

“There’s nothing wrong with my mental health. Someone told me to get the f**k out of here. I’m not passive-aggressive.”

The interview releases this Monday, but until then, you can watch the preview clip below.
