*Everyday Chatter

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick want to escape the paparazzi (which SJP admits to helping attract) of the West Village. So they might be coming...brace yourselves...to the East Village. "According to New York magazine, the pair has been looking at a $17.8 million home in the more private East Village." Who's ready to rumble with buses full of SATC girls? [NY Mag] via [SFGate]

The giant place they were looking at? Right down the block from the defunct Fontana Shoes and soon-to-be defunct tailor shop. [NYMag]

Christadoran goes head-to-head with Jerry the Peddler--and others who would label him Yuppie Scum. Maybe SJP will help take the heat off him when she comes East. [Voice] via [Curbed]

I saw SJP walking her dog at Charles Street a couple of weeks ago, and when she saw me heading her way, she had this befuddled look and turned around and walked back to her home; I avoided her instead by walking across the street. I felt like shouting at her and be thanking her, sarcastically, for turning NYC into vapid land. She must really feel guilty by bringing these hordes of tourists and paparazzis in the West Village. She ain't no sweetheart at all. Now she wants to move to the EV, yet the people at 66 perry street are stuck with all these tourists taking picture of thier stoop. Way to go SJP -- spineless coward. No wonder Mr. Bradshaw cheated on you.

oh for the love of god.... please tell me this SJP rumor is a joke. She just can't move over here, she's ruined enough neighborhoods already - this summer has been the worst with these tourist mobs. Why can't she just move to Westchester - why are we all being tortured by this woman? I have to go take another xanax now...
