A source told US Weekly : “She is fiercely protective of Carrie Bradshaw and livid that she and everyone else at the show has been put into this position.
“It is not about the money, but rather her legacy. Carrie was all about helping women and now, under her watch, women are saying that they have been hurt.”
They also added that she feels there has now been two deaths, speaking about Mr. Big’s death in the premiere.
The source mentioned that Parker takes her role as Carrie very seriously and despite knowing the situation is not about her, she still feels she has let fans down.
