Snap, snap!!

Looks like the men behind two of the most fabulous television series are putting their paws up, baby!!

When Desperate Housewives' creator Marc Cherry was asked whether or not he'd ever turn Wisteria Lane into a movie, he totally clawed at Sex and the City!!

Cherry said:

I'm never sending these gals to Dubai. That's all I'm saying. Sex and the City only did, I think, a total of something like 69 episodes. So I always thought that the advantage for them was that they had they hadn't really plumbed the depths of those characters.

Uhmmm…. ouch!!

Did he forget that while the quantity might be smaller than his ABC hit, the six seasons of SatC were written and crafted by a staff employed by HBO??? You know, quality TV mecca???

Of course, Sex EP Michael Patrick King responded with his own backhanded burn:

I don't think he has ever made a feature film, so I don't know if he knows what that entails, but the reality is my second movie made almost half a billion dollars. It's fine.

The reality is I've moved on from that. I'm doing a new show (2 Broke Girls). It's the number one comedy.

Here's what happens: You create something in the moment that you feel will be good, and then people's reactions to it or people referencing it years later, it's a compliment.

Well said, MPK!!

But honestly, we're sure Cherry is tired of always asked to compare his own show to Sex, and that's probably where most of the sass comes from.

But SatC deserves a little respect! That franchise had — and still has — a major effect on pop culture.

    I hate the new format of the site. It takes much too long to load each page which means I don't want to "read more" when I actually do. I preferred before when "read more" would send you to a separate elongated page and you could click the background to go back to the main page. You're losing my interest with waiting perez….

    OMG enough already. Both are great shows in their own ways.

    SJP and the "procucers" ruined s&tc, it's was a cash cow thats totally dried up. The demographic grew so all the have to cater to are "fabulous" gay's.

    Marc Cherry is an obese and frustrated queen. Sorry, but he is. He's always has a piss poor attitude. And his show Desperate Housewives can't even compare to Sex and the City. How the comparison is made outside of the most gay man/fab woman superficial circles, whoknows. Sex and the City always had a style and a vision (AND A PLOTLINE) which was concise, clear and meaningful (you know, for tv stuff). I think the mistake made is even putting these two shows on the same plane for comparison. SATC was far superior in acting and cinematography. And better to go to Abu Dhabi (not Dubai) than to watch the senseless nothingness of Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher looking for a story that makes sense on some street for nearly a decade's time.

    I admit… the SATC movies weren't the greatest - - but they were fun! As a fan of the shows, I spent time watching the episodes…and loved the girls. So, even if the movies weren't the greatest, I still wanted to watch and see them!

    I am a DH fan… I like the show. But this last season/the past seasons??? ehh…not my favorite.

    I don't know if a DH movie could work. It's a TOTALLY different type of story. SATC can focus on one thing. They were able to do the first movie pretty much on the relationship of Carrie 7 Big (and Miranda and Steve…) and a few other things.

    Desperate Housewives spends many episodes on one little thing.. so yeah.

    Marc Cherry is embarrassing himself by acting like a High school bitch. Desperate housewives will never be as good and as re-watchable as satc. There's no need for a movie because it seems like the show itself is already scraping for story lines and does anyone really care?!
