SATC: Carrie Bradshaw’s 10 Most Annoying Moments
8. She Brings Miranda Bagels
In this episode, Carrie is obsessing over the fact that Aiden is treating her differently and that he’s still not over the whole cheating thing…which isn’t all that surprising considering the guy she cheated on him with still calls her apartment! Miranda calls Carrie to come help her because she’s thrown her neck out and can’t get up. Carrie sends Aiden in her place (without warning Miranda) which is all fine and well, but Miranda had to go through the awfully embarrassing situation of her best friend’s boyfriend seeing her naked on the bathroom floor. Then Carrie comes over the next day to supposedly apologize for sending her boyfriend in her place. She brings “I’m sorry bagels,” but Miranda quickly notices that it’s all a decoy when Carrie dives right into talking about her own minuscule problems instead of asking Miranda how she’s doing or feeling. To top it all off, she didn’t even bring cream cheese for the bagels! As Miranda would say, those were clearly bullsh-t bagels and it’s just another way Carrie proves she’s completely self involved.
7. She Forces Herself Onto Natasha
Carrie is out for lunch with the girls when Natasha walks in with a friend. Natasha and her friend give Carrie a “dirty look” then turn around and head out. It didn’t take Carrie long to mourn the fact that she broke up a marriage, but spends an awful lot of time acting horrified that “someone in New York could hate me that much.” She then proceeds to harass Natasha so that she can feel better about herself and apologize over the whole sleeping-with-her-husband-thing, but she never takes into account that Natasha clearly isn’t ready to come face to face with her ex-husband’s mistress. We don’t exactly blame her for giving Carrie the cold shoulder. At the end of the episode, Carrie ambushes Natasha at a restaurant so that she can get her feelings and apologies off her chest. She naively thinks that a mere apology will mend the fact that Natasha thinks badly of her. In the end, Natasha doesn’t forgive her and that doesn’t seem to bother Carrie much because she finally got to say what she needed to say then struts off down the street with her head held high, happy that Big is once again alone.
