When I heard the CW network was making a Sex And The City prequel, set in 1984, focusing on a 16 year old Carrie Bradshaw, I was dubious. But then I saw this trailer and I have to say, I can’t wait to see it!
The Carrie Diaries features Carrie’s first love – New York. However, her other 3 loves Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte are nowhere to be seen. According to huffingtonpost.com, this is an intentional move, executive producer Amy B. Harris said, “We didn’t want to do the Baby Muppets syndrome, Oh it’s baby Samantha! It’s baby Miranda!'”
AnnaRob Sophia (Soul Surfer, Race To Witch Mountain ) has been cast in the lead role of Carrie. Joining her are Katie Findlay, Austin Butler, Freema Agyeman, Brendan Dooling, Ellen Wong, and Stefania Owen.

With Gossip Girl coming to an end this year, fans are looking for something to replace that and I’m sure this will fill that void nicely. But does this mean, 80s fashion is going to be all the rage come 2013?
The Carrie Diaries premieres on the CW network on Monday 14 January at 8pm.
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
