Sarah Jessica Parker has retuned to work on the set of the Sex and the City revival under a week after the death of her friend and co-star Willie Garson.

The two-time Emmy winner returned to filming for And Just Like That on Monday and began shooting scenes in a dress shop in Manhattan's SoHo neighbourhood.

The 56-year-old was spotted wearing a mauve coat, striped skirt and brimmed hat. For a second scene, the star switched into bright purple fish-net stockings and a plaid dress, which had a belt to cinch it at the waist.

Sarah was joined on set by Homeland alum Sarita Choudhury, who has taken up the role of a new character called Seema Patel.

Sarah's appearance comes just three days after the actress broke her silence following Willie's death.

The actor died on September 21 at the age of 57 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Sarah had originally commented on co-star Chris Noth's Instagram tribute to send say she wasn't ready to release her tribute.

She later found the right words to say, taking to her own page to tell her 7.1 million followers: "It's been unbearable. Sometimes silence is a statement.

"Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship. A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie's apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.

"Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls."

She continued: "Your absence a crater that I will fill with blessing of these memories and all the ones that are still in recesses yet to surface.

"My love and deepest sympathies and condolences to you dear Nathen. You were and are the light of Willie's life and his greatest achievement was being your Papa."

Willie and Sarah were close friends as well as co-stars

She ended her heartfelt message by saying: "These were his last words to me. "Great bangles all around." Yes. Godspeed Willie Garson. RIP. X, SJ"

The death of Willie came just a few days after Sarah's business partner George D Malkemus III died.

His also died after a battle with cancer and he passed away at the age of 67 on September 16.

  • Miguel and wife Nazanin Mandi split after 17 years together

     Miguel and wife Nazanin Mandi have split.

    The singer and the actress, both 35, have been together for 17 years, including three years of marriage.

    Their rep announced the news on Monday: ‘After 17 years together, Miguel and Nazanin Mandi have decided to separate and have been for some time now. The couple both wish each other well,’ via People.

    The way they were: Miguel and wife Nazanin Mandi have split. The singer and the actress, both 35, have been together for 17 years, including three years of marriage

    The news comes after Miguel wished Nazanin a happy birthday two weeks ago with a touching note. 

    The artist wrote: ‘Happy birthday to the most beautiful woman inside and out @nazaninmandi. Play more than words by extreme,’ adding a crown emoji. 

    Interestingly enough, Nazanin shared a slideshow of professional snaps with two quotes included in the series.

    Share

    One of them read: ‘Do right by me and ima be in your corner for life… lover or friend’ while the second one said ‘You gotta understand that everybody ain’t got the same heart and mind as you…’

    She added her own caption to the second quote in her ‘SeptemberFeels slideshow’: ‘…And that’s ok. Once understood, you learn where to place people in your life… IF any place all. Empathy plays a key role for me…  perception is relative. When key values don’t align, I kindly position people where I see fit…’

    Former flames: Their rep announced the news on Monday: ‘After 17 years together, Miguel and Nazanin Mandi have decided to separate and have been for some time now. The couple both wish each other well,’ via People; seen February 9, 2020 in Beverly Hills

    The former lovebirds met when they were 18, with Nazanin interviewing Miguel while he promoted his first music video.

    She revealed their meet cute to Vogue in 2018: ‘I asked him a question that wasn’t on my Q & A, which was: “All the ladies want to know, do you have a girlfriend?” And then he smiled and said, “No, but I’m looking for one.”‘

    Adding: ‘We exchanged numbers, and he called me the next day to ask me out on a date… and ever since then it’s been one hell of a ride!’

    Interesting timing: The news comes after Miguel wished Nazanin a happy birthday just two weeks ago with a touching note; he posted it on September 11

    They confirmed their engagement in January 2016 after Nazanin was seen wearing a large diamond ring on her ring finger. 

    They obtained their marriage license in November 2018 and had their wedding on November 24, 2018 at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, California.

    The former couple have cleansed their respective Instagram accounts on any wedding or engagement pictures previously posted.

    In August 2018, Nazanin shared snaps from her first date with Miguel, born Miguel Jontel Pimentel.

    The beauty, who is a model/actress/entrepreneur, penned a heartfelt caption alongside the black and white snap; the stunner wrote: ‘Sept. 2005… our first date & I truly thought it was going to be our last. Clearly underage we decided to put our fake ID’s to use and head to the club.’

    Nazanin wrote that they drank ‘multiple glasses of champagne,’ which resulted in her getting sick and she ‘barfed in my leather jacket, in his friends car & in my clutch.’

    Despite it all she said: ‘I’m usually extremely put together but he made me feel safe so my guard was all the way down. I remember all I kept thinking was omg I blew it he’s never gonna want to talk to me again.. it was fun while it lasted.’  

    Nazanin continued, saying that he took her took her apartment and put her in the shower as he went and got food for them.

    Adding: ‘I apologized all night while he laughed, held me and said relax… I’m not going anywhere. Over a decade later, many life lessons and a few more puke filled nights lol he still got me.’

    Britney Spears reacts to latest documentary as she tells fans ‘a lot of what you heard is not true!’

    Britney Spears is reacting to the latest documentaries about her troubled life – The New York Times, FX, and Hulu series titled ‘Controlling Britney Spears, as well as CNN’s Toxic: Britney Spears’ Battle For Freedom.

    Although she did not specify which documentary she was referring to, both were released over the weekend, and Britney said she watched one of them, and told fans that a lot of what she saw was not true.  

    Addressing fans in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday, she said: ‘I hate to inform you but a lot of what you heard is not true!’

    One of the claims came from a former security member alleged that Britney’s father Jamie Spears had his daughter under constant surveillance during her conservatorship. 

    Britney Spears reacts to latest documentary as she tells fans ‘I hate to inform you but a lot of what you heard is not true!’

    ‘I watched a little bit of the last documentary,’ Britney admitted, and then appeared to sarcastically critique the program for painting her in an unflattering light.

    ‘I really try to disassociate myself from the drama! Number one… that’s the past !!! Number two… can the dialogue get any classier,’ she said with a series of emojis. 

    ‘Number three … wow they used the most beautiful footage of me in the world !!! What can I say .. the EFFORT on their part,’ she added. 

    Fan address: the singer appeared in an all-white ensemble baring her midriff alongside a lengthy caption on Instagram 

    It seemed as though the singer was unhappy with the footage that the documentary makers had used of her, which she has complained about in the past.

    She then made reference to her so-called Rose Project, that she has been discussing with fans on Instagram for the last few years. 

    The Toxic singer has referred to it in the past a ‘personal photo project’ when she will wear the same clothes in multiple different photos, though it is not quite clear why Britney was discussing this in relation to the documentary. 

    Jamie Spears is pictured with his daughter in 2015. On Tuesday he filed court documents to officially end his 13-year control of her estate 

    Britney said last year on Instagram: ‘Yes, I know, I did wear the same top 17 times, but it’s for a project, Project Rose. And you’ll be seeing way more of Project Rose in the future.’ 

    Last week, her  former tour manager Dan George detailed just how much the star’s conservators have controlled her medical care for over a decade.

    In an explosive interview, George came forward with his observations of how the singer, 39, was treated while working with her on the Circus tour from 2008 to 2009 during CNN’s upcoming documentary TOXIC: Britney Spears’ Battle for Freedom.

    Not okay: Britney Spears’ former tour manager Dan George detailed just how much the star’s conservators have controlled her medical care for over a decade; seen in 2018

    ‘The conservatorship dictated to her who her doctors were going to be, which doctors she was going to see, how often she was going to see them, how long those sessions would be — every aspect of her medical care,’ he said in a preview for one-hour special, obtained by Page Six.

    George’s statement comes after Spears testified that her conservatorship was so restrictive that she wasn’t allowed to remove her IUD birth control.

    While speaking to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny in June, the mom-of-two said she just wanted her ‘life back.’

    The Gimme More singer has been under a court order for 13 years where her dad has held the power over all of her personal and financial decisions following her multiple involuntary holds in psychiatric hospitals.
