  • Cynthia Nixon for New York merch

"Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker has endorsed co-star Cynthia Nixon in her run for governor.

This comes after Christine Quinn, the former speaker of the New York City Council and a supporter of incumbent Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, used the phrase to criticize Nixon earlier this month.

"Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls", she said through a spokeswoman.

Egypt votes on final day, with all eyes on turnout
Polling stations in Egypt closed Wednesday at 10 p.m. local time (0800 GMT), bringing an end to the presidential elections. The authorities are talking about a higher voter turnout, compared to the previous presidential election (in 2014 - 37%).

Parker posted her endorsement on her Instagram a day after her publicist issued a more mealy-mouthed statement on her behalf saying "I look forward to talking to her about her NY state gubernatorial bid". That's what Carrie Bradshaw might call "sending a mixed message". "My sister on and off screen, you have my love, support and vote", she wrote. Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte York, tweeted her support on the day Nixon officially announced her campaign.

The much-publicized fight between Parker and Cattrall, which has been rumored for years, came to a head in the wake of Cattrall losing her brother.

Nixon's other former co-stars from the hit HBO show had previously shown their support to the 51-year-old candidate.

Dozens dead after Russia Mall fire
State TV said the mall had opened in 2013, and official documents showed it had last undergone a fire safety check in 2016. Four people have been detained for questioning, including the head of the company that manages the shopping centre.

So the far-more-enthusiastic Thursday Instagram puts her in the same camp as Davis, who immediately after Nixon announced her run for the Empire State's Democratic nomination, publicly backed her former co-star. "I know that she cares deeply about the issues facing all of us". But using her celebrity and Hollywood connections may backfire after we elected the inexperienced celebrity Donald Trump as President.

"She never went for the fame", Field said. "On health care, ending massive incarceration, fixing our broken subway".
