It would appear Carrie and Aidan are continuing to be Carrie-and-Aidan. The show is clearly able to control or make deals about the paparazzi access to its outdoor shoots, because Sarah Jessica Parker is the one who debuted the first shot of them walking in the middle of the street, and they seem spectacularly unfussed about all this exposure. But I couldn’t help but wonder: Do these dribs and drabs help or hurt? For example, how many people will watch to see what happens with Aidan, versus those who will see these leaks and conclude, “REALLY? This again? I’m out.” I guess they’re coming it as though all press is good press. Even if that press is from cranks like me who are all, “UGH.” At least there’s a Steve sighting?
