Cynthia Nixon Reveals Which Scene in 'Sex and the City 2' Movie Left Her 'Devastated'

Nixon, who is now running for governor of NY, opens up about everything from "Sex And The City" to politics on "The Wendy Williams Show" in her first televised interview since announcing her run.

The former "Sex and the City" star gave her first sit-down interview to the talk show host in a chat that was filmed Tuesday and set to air Wednesday.

The actress, 51, recently announced that she is running for governor of NY. "If we don't like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up".

'Well, I love NY, ' the married mother-of-three said.

Still, she adds with a laugh, "We love the clothes!"

"She's a hard worker like me", Nixon said of her character. Cuomo defended his record during an interview aired on NY1 on Tuesday night, saying it is better than any other NY governor in modern history, which would include his father, Mario, who was governor from 1983-1994. Aside from the fact that Andrew Cuomo, a two-term Democrat, is a tough opponent for the gubernatorial race, she was recently criticized for her sexual orientation and called an unqualified lesbian.

South Africa lead fourth Australia Test by 267 runs
On the other hand, the South Africans had an opportunity to turn over the visitors for the maiden time in the Rainbow nation. Australia made four changes from the last Test, replacing the banned trio with Joe Burns, Matt Renshaw and Handscombe.

The mom of three says, "The election of Donald Trump was a real wake-up call".

Nixon also said that given the recent rash of shootings nationally, NY missed out on an opportunity in the recently enacted state budget to enact new gun control measures. "For me I'm running as a New Yorker ... as a public school parent. There's such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state".

Williams also brought up the recent police-involved shooting of Stephon Clark in Sacramento, California, asking Nixon, "Is this a black man thing?"

Despite her reaction to the scene, Nixon jokes that even empowered women love clothes. Nixon then made a very valid point that "black women are going to stop showing up for the Democratic Party if the Democratic Party doesn't start showing up for them".

She also addressed the chatter over a celebrity entering politics. The candidate emphasized that, if elected, she would be adamant about investing in infrastructure, tackling gun control and legalizing marijuana.
