This weekend I walked into Bergdorf Goodman in New York City for an interview session with the cast and director of Sex and the City 2 (Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Catrall, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, Chris Noth and Michael Patrick King). I walked through the same revolving door as the four women do in one of the opening scenes of the movie (that hits theaters on May 27), when they go to peruse a wedding registry.

Two years ago, when the first movie came out, I interviewed these six stars, plus Jennifer Hudson and phenomenal costume designer Patricia Field.
