Cynthia Nixon is Actually Running for Governor of New York

Cynthia Nixon has a message for Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall:

You women keep doing your adorable little cat fight thing.

I’m gonna go makeover an entire state, okay?

Indeed, while the latter two ex-Sex and the City stars continue to bicker over their fake friendship, Nixon has set her sights on something a bit more pressing.

The actress announced on Monday afternoon that she is running for Governor of New York.

“I love New York, and today I’m announcing my candidacy for governor. Join us,” Nixon Tweeted alongside a two-minute video just a short while ago, adding via voiceover in this video:

“New York is my home, I’ve never lived anywhere else.

“When I grew up here, it was just my mom and me in a one-bedroom, fifth floor walk-up.

“New York is where I was raised and where I’m raising my kids. I’m a proud public school graduate and a prouder public school parent.”

Sounds like she has one item on her platform (education) already checked off.

Sex and the City, of course, was filmed in The Big Apple.

One television critic after another analyzed how the location itself was as much of a character on the HBO smash hit as Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte themselves.

Continues Nixon in her campaign footage:

“I was given chances I just don’t see for most of New York’s kids today.

“Our leaders are letting us down. We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty. Half the kids in our upstate cities live below the poverty line.

“How did we let this happen? I love New York. I’ve never wanted to live anywhere else, but something has to change.”

Nixon will be challenging Governor Andrew Cuomo in a Democratic primary this fall

If she wins the overall election, she’ll be the first openly gay woman to hold this position.

Her entrance in the race guarantees that Cuomo (who has over $ 30 million his campaign account and who polls list as being far ahead) will face an intra-party challenge from his fairly far left.

“We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us,” Nixon says in her video.

“It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”

The Democratic primary will be held on September 13 and Nixon has already received encouragement from Rosie O’Donnell.

“CYNTHIA NIXON FOR GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK!” Tweeted the comedian after Nixon made her announcement, adding:

“#myFULLsupport – she is one of kind – brilliant – brave bold and so smart – a true leader #Nixon4NY.”

Concluded Nixon, running down more issues on which she feels strongly:

We want our government to work again, on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us.

Do YOU agree?

‘RHOA’ Star Cynthia Bailey Gives Chrissy Teigen Fire Evacuation Tips

Cynthia Bailey and Chrissy Teigen are alike in a lot of ways — ‘cause they’d both be super moms in an emergency fire situation. We got the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star at LAX and briefed her on the latest news about the L.A. fires and people…


Cynthia Bailey Makes a Pledge: NO MORE MARRIAGE!

It is all over for Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas.

This is not news, of course, The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member confirmed the end of her six-year marriage back in July.

Speaking to E! News about estranged husband Peter Thomas at the time, Bailey said:

“I don’t want it to be an ugly divorce because I still love Peter. I just don’t want to be married to Peter anymore. It’s as simple as that.”

That does make it sound pretty simple.

And amicable.

Are there any hard feelings between Bailey and Thomas? It doesn’t sound that way.

“I still root for him. I want him to win. I still love and support him. We are just not going to be married anymore,” Bailey added this summer.

And the reality star makes a similar point in a new interview with Us Weekly.

“I will always love Peter and have his back,” Bailey told the tabloid, explaining of her marriage:

“There was a lot of internal unhappiness. I wasn’t at peace.”

Those who watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online have been familiar with pair’s troubles for awhile, ever since Bailey joined the Bravo franchise.

Last season, for example, a video came out in June that depicted Thomas kissing and touching a female clubgoer at his Charlotte business, Bar One.

“He was just being social,” explains Bailey, defending her ex-lover.

And she continues to defend Thomas, despite the many cheating allegations that have circulated around him over the past few years.

“I believe with every ounce of oxygen and bone in my body that Peter never had sex with another woman,” Bailey tells Us Weekly.

Way back in Season 3, Bailey’s mother and sister turned on Thomas.

They alleged he was unreliable and riding her wealth and fame, strongly protesting the union right up until the couple exchanged vows.

These days, Bailey acknowledges that she placed her daughter’s well-being over that of her husband and says she was never “wife material.”

And she won’t be again, Bailey vows.

“I will never be in a relationship again where it will take a lawyer for me to walk away. I will never marry again,” she says.

Bailey and Thomas hope to finalize their divorce in January. Beyond that, when it comes to her dating life, Bailey isn’t sure what to predict.

“There’s something very scary about turning 50 and being by yourself,” she admits. “I just have to believe everything will be OK.”
