Her reputation was dragged through the mud when Kim Cattrall branded her a ‘cruel hypocrite’.
But as Sarah Jessica Parker emerged on Monday morning, her friends rallied round to offer their support in the aftermath of the nasty public spat.
Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen publicly offered his support to his long-term friend, while her Divorce co-star Molly Shannon praised Parker as a colleague.

Despite her friends making supportive comments, a brooding Parker looked downcast as she emerged on Monday, braving the cold New York day in a thick fur coat.
Wrapped up warm, she looked down at her cell phone, perhaps following the media reaction to the weekend’s fall out.
‘I thought it was fake,’ Cohen stated.on his SiriusXM channel, of Cattrall’s Instagram attack on Parker. ‘I was like, “There’s no way Kim Cattrall has posted this on her Instagram.” This is a women who is in the middle of grieving the loss of her brother, which is tragic and sad.’

And, according to Shannon, the Parker she knows is nothing like the one Cattrall describes.
‘For me, Sarah is just so supportive and so wonderful and we just get along so well,’ Shannon told Entertainment Tonight of her Divorce co-star.
‘We just get along so well. It doesn’t really feel like work because we have so much in common, and she loves funny women and is just so genuinely supportive and kind, and like a girls-girl. I just feel lucky that I get to work with her.’

Not friends: Cattrall’s attack on her former s3x And The City co-star was sparked when Parker publicly shared her condolences following Cattrall’s brother’s death
Their comments couldn’t be more of a contrast to Cattrall’s. Her attack on her former s3x And The City co-star was sparked when Parker publicly shared her condolences following Cattrall’s brother’s death.
Liverpool-born Cattrall, who played man-eater Samantha in the TV show, accused Parker of ‘exploiting’ the tragedy to promote her ‘nice girl’ image.
In a scathing attack on Parker, who played fashion-obsessed Carrie Bradshaw, Cattrall, 61, fumed: ‘My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.

‘Let me make this VERY clear (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your “nice girl” persona.’
The post was accompanied by an image saying: ‘I don’t need your love or support this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker.’
Her rant came after Parker wrote on social media: ‘Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother xx’
Chris Cattrall, 55, was found dead on his farm in rural Canada last Sunday. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
