To Top

The HBO series that invoked a cult-like following of women everywhere ran for six seasons. Sex and the City highlighted the ups and downs of single women searching for love in New York City. Women envied Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte’s lifestyle, but respected their loyalty and honesty as friends. Fans, here are ten things you didn’t know about Sex and the City.

1. The Real-Life Carrie Bradshaw

The hit HBO series was partially based on a true story. Sex and the City was drawn from Candace Bushnell’s book, which was comprised of her weekly New York Observer columns. Bushnell was paid just $60,000 for the rights to film those columns. Another fun fact: Carrie was orignally supposed to be a brunette, but just 24 hours before the pilot was shot, producers changed their minds because Bushnell is blonde.

2. The Magnolia Bakery

After Carrie and Miranda devoured cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery at 401 Bleecker Street, it became so popular that the store needed to hire a bouncer. The bakery’s popularity only grew as it was also featured on screen in The Devil Wears Prada, Prime, Veronica Mars and Spin City. Magnolia Bakery currently has a total of 11 international locations in the following cities: Beirut, Dubai, Kuwait City, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Moscow City, Tokyo and Mexico City.
