SATC: Carrie Bradshaw’s 10 Most Annoying Moments
Sex and the City was one of the best shows on television during the late ’90s and early 2000s and it continues to gain popularity even though it’s been off the air for nearly 12 years! SATC told the story of four professional women in their mid-thirties living in New York City who all confide in each other about their personal lives and ever-changing relationships with men. The HBO show helped launch the careers of Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon who all starred as the main characters, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda. As the narrator of the show, Carrie was no doubt the star and glue that held it all together. She was a fan favorite, but now when we look back it’s pretty clear she was someone we probably wouldn’t like in real life. She was incredibly self-centered, judgmental and spent her entire life talking about men! To back up our claims, we’ve complied a list of Carrie Bradshaw’s 10 most annoying moments!
10. She Complains Aiden is ‘Too’ Perfect
It wasn’t until season 3 when Carrie finally met the perfect boyfriend, Aiden. She definitely had to kiss a lot of frogs to find him and it was clear from the get-go that he was much more innocent, selfless and kindhearted than she was. Once they’d been dating for a while Carrie begins to sabotage the relationship because she starts to get nervous that he’s “too perfect.” She is anticipating something in their relationship to go wrong, so out of fear she starts to push him away. To viewers it’s incredibly frustrating because she spent the past two seasons looking for someone to treat her well and when she finally gets it, she doesn’t want it! What’s even more weird is that Aiden is acting like Carrie did when she was with Big and Carrie is acting like Big. She is taking on all of Big’s traits that she just spent the past few seasons complaining about. Luckily she snaps out of it and eventually goes to have breakfast with Aiden and his parents.
9. The Country House
Carrie Bradshaw is no stranger to complaining — we’ve seen her do it in each and every episode. More often than not, it’s her way or the highway when it comes to relationships. In this particular episode, Aiden is really excited to show Carrie his country house that he’s been fixing up. It’s obvious that Carrie is a city gal who won’t even venture outside of Manhattan, but sometimes we have to make compromises in our relationships even if it means stepping outside of our comfort zone. It’s bad enough that she complains about it to her friends like she’s going away for capital punishment, but she also doesn’t shy away from letting Aiden know that it’s the last place she wants to be. She acts like a total diva by wearing high heels to the cabin, then screaming bloody murder every time she sees a squirrel, and then gets mad at Aiden when she drops a hot pan on her legs after freaking out over seeing a squirrel (for the 100th time). For being a self-proclaimed relationship expert, Carrie Bradshaw knows nothing about relationship ethics!
