Cristal and the CityPart of: Literati , Television

Candace Bushnell AKA creator of "Sex and the City" was on some Scottish guy’s late night show. I’ve only read print interviews with her, so I decided to check her out. I did not find her endearing like I found the character "Carrie" who was based on her in "Sex and the City". She mentioned that there was some interest in people doing a reality show starring her. Hmm…not if she says insulting things like:
"Why do Americans only have champagne for special occasions? It’s so boring. In Europe people drink champagne all the time! I was just in London and was offered champagne everywhere I went."
Blah, blah, blah--Whoever came up with that not-quite-amusing anecdote should be fired.
Q. Where were the "Sex and the City" writers when you need them?
A. Hanging out in their Hawaiian houses coming up with their next hit show.
I decided not to be so judgmental. Maybe I had just been to the wrong parts of Europe. I called up my English friend Toby for consultation.
He laughed and we came up with a few European scenarios starring Candace.

Toby and I had a good laugh. I wonder if Candace is in L.A. right now? I’d love to have her over at my boyfriend’s house for a Valentine’s Day Mimosa. I wonder if Veuve Clicquot yellow label would be beneath her.
