Willie Garson's former L.A. home is now officially off the market, his estate found a buyer nearly a year after his death.

The late "Sex and the City" actor's bungalow in Valley Village sold last week for $1.9 million, a jump from it's original $1.695 million listing price. The home was on the market for a month.

Willie bought the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home back in 2005 for just over a million dollars. The Spanish-style home features 10,399 square feet of living space and comes with a ton of charm.

The living room has beamed vaulted ceilings, built-in bookshelves and a fireplace. The backyard is very private, and the new homeowners can enjoy a pool and spa.

TMZ broke the story ... Willie -- who was famous for his role in the "Sex and the City" series and various movies -- died last September after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Bryan Abrams of Sotheby's International Realty held the listing.

Thomas Canestraro Won't Rule Out Kim Cattrall Return ... Still Possible for 'And Just Like That ...'


The Kim-ticipation's been killing fans of the "Sex and the City" reboot, and this could be a smidgen of good news for 'em ... 'cause someone who's been on set isn't ready to write off a Kim Cattrall comeback.

We caught up with Thomas Canestraro Friday afternoon as he left Complete Body in NYC, and if you've seen his role on "And Just Like That ..." as hot mover, Nick, then you know why he was at the gym.

Anyway, we digress ... we asked Thomas if there was any buzz on set about Kim possibly squashing her beef with Sarah Jessica Parker, and making a cameo. Check out the clip ... he plays it coy, for sure, but what he did NOT say could be a clue.

As you've probably heard, Kim turned down the offer to play her beloved character, Samantha Jones, on the reboot, but that hasn't killed hope for fans ... who continue to cross their fingers there's a HUGE plot twist coming that leads to Kim's return.

What Thomas says here won't crush that dream.

Of course, he's far from calling the shots on the production ... but actors hear things.

As for his time working on the reboot, Thomas says it's been an unexpected but very nice experience.

Sarah Jessica Parker on Chris Noth Sexual Assault Claims Make Me Sad ... Standing With Alleged Victims!!!

Sarah Jessica Parker and her "Sex and The City" costars are breaking their silence on the Chris Noth sexual assault allegations ... giving the alleged victims their full support.

SJP released a statement Monday along with her "And Just Like That" stars Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis ... saying they are "deeply saddened" to learn of the claims against Noth, who plays Mr. Big in the OG show and reboot.

The trio says ... "We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences. We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it."

As we reported ... Noth is facing 3 accusers and he's already been booted by his talent agent. He did not deny having sexual encounters in 2004 and 2015 with the first two accusers, saying both interactions were consensual.

A third woman claims Noth sexually assaulted her in 2010 at an NYC restaurant ... but he says her story is a complete fabrication.

he's baaaaack ...

Of course, Noth’s Mr. Big made headlines after the premiere of the ‘SATC’ reboot, dying of a heart attack shortly after working out on a Peloton bike.

Peloton was quick to put together a spoof-ad featuring Noth after the episode aired, but that has been pulled in wake of the controversy.

Chris Noth Booted by Talent Agent ... As He Denies 3rd Accuser's Allegations

Chris Noth is starting to get the cold shoulder in Hollywood ... he's in the market for a new agent, after his dropped him due to the claims of rape and sexual misconduct.

The "Sex and the City" actor's reps at A3 Artists Agency gave him the ol' heave-ho Friday ... the day after he vehemently denied 2 separate allegations -- one from a woman in 2004, and the other from a woman in 2015.

But, now Noth is facing a 3rd accuser ... a woman, using the pseudonym, Ava, told Daily Beast she was an 18-year-old hostess at an NYC restaurant in 2010 when the actor allegedly sexually assaulted her. She claims he drunkenly groped her and pulled her onto his lap when he had an erection.

Noth's denying that as well ... a rep told People, "The story is a complete fabrication, and the alleged accounts detailed throughout read like a piece of bad fiction. As Chris stated yesterday, he has and would never cross that line."

Noth, whose character Mr. Big just died from a Peloton-induced heart attack, did not deny having sexual encounters with the 2004 and 2015 accusers ... but claims both interactions were consensual.

'SATC' Star Chris Noth Accused of Sexual Assault ... Calls Allegations 'Categorically False'


11:51 AM PT -- Noth had done a rebuttal advertisement with Peloton after Mr. Big's death ... the ad has now been pulled.

Chris Noth -- the actor who famously played Mr. Big in "Sex and the City" as well as the show's reboot -- is now facing allegations of sexual assault from two women, but Noth is coming out strong, calling the claims "categorically false."

A report from The Hollywood Reporter Thursday details the accounts of two women who say they were triggered to come forward and tell their story after seeing Noth reprise his role in the 'SATC' reboot "And Just Like That..."

Noth tells us, "The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual. It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women."

As for the allegations ... one of the women, Zoe, says she was 22 in 2004 when she and a friend met Noth -- who she'd previously spoken to -- at his apartment pool to hang out. Zoe claims Noth asked her a bunch of questions about her major before giving her a book to take a look at.

Zoe says Noth went to his apartment to take a call, and after a while, she went into his unit to return the book where she says he first kissed her and then forcefully removed her shorts and bikini bottom and raped her as she yelled "Stop!" Zoe told THR she went to the hospital, but wouldn't tell cops who had assaulted her.

A source close to Noth confirms to us that he and Zoe were flirty, but tells us the sexual encounter in his apartment was consensual and Zoe asked to meetup again.

The other woman, Lily, told THR she was 25 in 2015 when she met Noth while working at a VIP server at a NYC nightclub. Lily says the Noth invited her for dinner one night, but the two just ended up drinking and wound up back at the actor's apartment.

Lily claims they started to kiss, but Noth became much more forceful, removing his pants and sticking his penis in her mouth before having sex with her from behind.

Our Noth source confirms the meeting between the two, but says the encounter with Lily was also consensual.

Of course, Noth's Mr. Big character made headlines last week after dying on the first episode of "And Just Like That..." shortly following a ride on a Peloton bike.

Peloton Recruits Reynolds for Funny Spoof Ad ... Mr. Big's Alive, Guys!!!

he's baaaaack ...

Ryan Reynolds is here to save Peloton's day -- narrating a new spoof ad that's in direct response to the outrage over Mr. Big dying in the new 'SATC' show. Also ... spoiler alert.

The actor just posted a hilarious 38-second clip, something Peloton apparently whipped up over these past few days. It shows Chris Noth -- who plays Sarah Jessica Parker's love interest throughout the OG series -- yukking it up with actress Jess King.

She stars as the hot Peloton instructor that Big is kinda into during the first couple episodes of 'And Just Like That ..." -- which killed off Carrie's hubby after a Peloton bike ride. As you can see, he's doing just fine ... and even jokingly asks if King wants to go for another ride.

As you've probably heard, CN's death made for a huge twist -- but it also had very real-world ramifications for Peloton ... whose stock price took a nosedive in the wake of the premiere.

Peloton came out and said Big didn't die as a result of riding their bike, but because of what he'd done prior to hopping on ... namely, living large. A company spokesperson responded, "Mr. Big lived what many would call an extravagant lifestyle -- including cocktails, cigars, and big steaks -- and was at serious risk as he had a previous cardiac event in Season 6."

They added, "These lifestyle choices and perhaps even his family history, which often is a significant factor, were the likely cause of his death. Riding his Peloton Bike may have even helped delay his cardiac event."

Now, here's them putting a bow on the whole thing ... assuring fans Big is alive, and happy, despite his on-screen tragedy. Reynolds hits that point with a long disclaimer at the end. 😅

'Sex and the City' Big's Death on Peloton Bike ... Causes Stock Price to Crash!!!


7:54 AM PT -- Now, this is amazing!!! Peloton just tried to soften the blow, saying, "Mr. Big lived what many would call an extravagant lifestyle -- including cocktails, cigars and big steaks -- and was at serious risk as he had a previous cardiac event in Season 6. These lifestyle choices and perhaps even his family history, which often is a significant factor, were the likely cause of his death." Well done, Peloton!!!

Peloton may want to hire a Hollywood type to vet its products being used in the movies ... because it allowed "And Just Like That..." to kill off one of its characters on the bike and Peloton's stock went into freefall.

So, in case you haven't seen it and you care ... read no further, but Big [played by Chris Noth] had a grabber [aka heart attack] as he peddled furiously in the saddle and kicked the bucket.

Once the word started circulating, Peloton's stock price tumbled more than 11%.

Now here's the crazy part ... Peloton says it not only allowed its bike to be used on the show, but it also allowed one of its instructors -- Jess King -- to play an instructor. In other words, it all looked authentic. Yet the company claims it had no clue about the plotline.

A spokesperson said, "HBO procured the Peloton Bike on their own. Peloton was aware that a bike would be used in the episode and that Jess King would be portraying a fictional Peloton instructor."

First rule for companies asked to participate in a flick -- GET THE SCRIPT SO YOU KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT YOU!!!

Anyway ... Big's dead. RIP.

Sarah Jessica Parker Pays Tribute to Willie Garson

Sarah Jessica Parker just paid tribute to her "Sex and the City" costar ... saying the sudden loss of Willie Garson is a crater in her life -- one she's trying to fill with memories of their time together.

SJP poured her heart out Friday ... saying she'll fondly remember their 30-plus year friendship that included road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a devotion to parenthood -- along with all the time they spent on sets ... "most especially Carrie's apartment."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

She added, "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."

Sarah also expressed her condolences to Nathen ... Willie's 20-year-old son whom he adopted when Nathen was only 7 years old. Sarah said, "You were and are the light of Willie's life and his greatest achievement was being your Papa."​

As we reported ... Willie's sudden death sent shockwaves throughout Hollywood. "Bosch" star Titus Welliver broke the news saying, "There are no words. I love you dear brother. We are fewer." Our sources say Willie had been battling with cancer.

He had a huge HBO following as Carrie's BFF in 'SATC' but he also appeared in a ton of other TV shows. He was only 57.

'Sex and the City' Willie Garson Dead at 57 ... After Cancer Battle

Willie Garson -- famous for his role in the "Sex and the City" series and movies -- has died ... according to his close friends.

"Bosch" star Titus Welliver broke the news of Willie's passing with a post that said, "There are no words. I love you dear brother. We are fewer," and he attached a photo of Willie.

Willie's fellow actor and friend Rob Morrow also posted a tribute.

Sources connected to the 'SATC' star tell us he'd been battling cancer, though we've not confirmed it as his cause of death.

Willie was a fan fave from the hit HBO series ... playing Sarah Jessica Parker's male BFF, Stanford Blatch -- a gay socialite who Carrie Bradshaw often called "Stanny."

He didn't appear in every episode, but for the 27 he did pop up for over the course of 6 years ... his scenes were always memorable.

Willie was also in both 'SATC' movies ... and he's at least slated to appear with SJP and co. in "And Just Like That..." -- the new HBO Max series. We know he shot scenes in NYC this summer with Sarah Jessica and Mario Cantone.

WG's roles went well beyond 'SATC' though -- he's been in tons of shows and movies throughout his career ... including stuff like "White Collar," "Hawaii Five-0," "Quantum Leap," "Girl Meets World," "Mr. Belvedere," "Just Shoot Me!" "Big Mouth," "Supergirl," and many, many more.

He's got a total of 170 acting credits to his name, dating back to the '80s.

Willie was 57. He leaves behind his son, Nathen.

Cynthia Nixon Loses NY Gov. Democratic Primary To Andrew Cuomo

Cynthia Nixon's bid to be the next governor of New York is officially over, 'cause she just lost to incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo ... and it wasn't even close.

Cuomo was projected to beat the "Sex and the City" actress late Thursday by AP, the NYT and others as exit poll numbers poured in throughout the state. He has over 445,000 votes compared to Nixon's 230,000 votes of the count that's currently in. About 33% of the vote has been accounted for so far, and if it continues like this ... Nixon basically got creamed.

Nixon's candidacy began in March on a platform focused on public transportation and immigration. Thursday's result will piss off T.I. -- the rapper is/was a HUGE fan of her plans to legalize weed.

Cynthia got a big fundraising boost from celebs like Alec Baldwin and Chelsea Handler ... though Cuomo raised $12 million in donations compared to Nixon's $2.5M.

Better luck next time?

Cynthia Nixon Hollywood's Got My Back for NY Gov. ... Donation $ Pouring In!!!

The stars are aligning with Cynthia Nixon in her bid to become the next governor of New York.

Lee Daniels, Marisa Tomei, and Aaron Sorkin are just some of the MANY celebs who cut checks totaling thousands of dollars ... this according to the NY State Board of Elections Campaign Finance Disclosure records.

The list is impressive:

-- Daniels $5,000

-- Tomei $1,500

-- Sorkin $1,000

-- "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star $5,000

-- 'SATC' costume designer Patricia Field $7,000

-- Sigourney Weaver $1,000

-- Christian Siriano $1,000

Alec Baldwin donated a whopping $16k back in July and TMZ can now report he cut Nixon's campaign another $5k check on Aug. 31.

Chelsea Handler is another repeat contributor ... first with $1k in June and again in July with $1,500. John Slattery, Amy Sedaris, Sarah Paulson, Andy Cohen, Edie Falco, Debra Messing and Rosie O'Donnell are other celebs who are rallying behind Nixon.

BTW ... Nixon's raised nearly $2.5M in 2018, but her rival, incumbent Andrew Cuomo, is way ahead with more than $12M in donations. Super BTW -- 'cause we know you're wondering -- T.I. is a big Nixon fan (even though he has no idea who she is), but he hasn't put his money where his mouth is. At least not yet.

T.I. I Don't Know Cynthia Nixon But, Her Politics Are Dope!!!

T.I. is so high on Cynthia Nixon's political platform -- at least the marijuana parts of it -- and vows she's got his vote for governor, even though he doesn't know who she is ... and can't possibly vote for her.

The rapper shouted out the NY gubernatorial candidate for her stance on legalizing marijuana -- in fact, he called her "brilliant." However, he also added ... he doesn't have a clue who she is. Guess Tip isn't binge-watching "Sex and the City."

Basically, Cynthia says it's important to legalize Mary J in NY because it's a multi-billion dollar industry -- that's a lot of GREEN -- and because blacks and latinos have historically been penalized for toking up more than whites.

T.I. can't vote Cynthia for New York governor -- he lives in Georgia, where ganja is still against the law -- but she made the most of it ... introducing herself and asking him to spread the stoner word.

Cynthia is battling incumbent Andrew Cuomo in this week's Democratic Primary, but sounds like T.I. would love to see her go Green Party.

Cynthia Nixon Trades Blows with Governor Cuomo ... 'Stop Lying!'


Cynthia Nixon and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo held nothing back in a nasty debate for the Democratic seat in the state's race for governor.

Nixon and Cuomo squared off Wednesday night -- at Hofstra University -- in the only debate scheduled before New York's Democratic primary September 13. Two topics in particular got the two trading jabs ... immigration and public transportation.

At one point, Gov. Cuomo flat-out yelled at the former "Sex and The City" star, asking her to stop interrupting. However, the shining jab came from Nixon who dished an insult calling Cuomo a liar.

Nixon announced her candidacy back in March on a platform that's focused on public transport and immigration.

The actress has consistently trailed Cuomo in the polls -- most recently, he held a 30 point lead -- but if one thing's for sure ... the power of TV can change an entire political landscape.
