Finally: Sarah Jessica Parker Sheds Light On HBO’s ‘Girls’

Ever since Lena Dunham’s HBO program, “Girls” debuted earlier this year, people have been asking the million dollar question: how does the show compare to “Sex and the City,” which painted a much different portrait of New York City?
Expert Sarah Jessica Parker, who of course portrayed SATC heroine Carrie Bradshaw, has finally come forward with an answer. Who cares what anyone else has said on the matter, including Dunham? Parker, the end all source, told the Hollywood Reporter of “Girls”:
“It’s a very different show. But the similarity is in the intimacy of the conversations among women.”
The SATC gals seem to be more comfortable with their place in life than their “Girls” counterparts, as Dunham’s characters are much younger, facing immense uncertainty, always sparring with friends, and in tight financial situations. With its happy hours, brunches, shopping sprees, and chic bar excursions, SATC is the NYC life to strive for. “Girls,” on the other hand, is even more depressing than reality.
