NYC HOMEOWNERS UPSET WITH SARAH JESSICA PARKER: The people that own the West Village brownstone in New York City that was the fictional home to Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City are upset with Sarah Jessica Parker for taking an unauthorized photo shoot on their steps. According to Page Six, the owners and surrounding neighbors have been increasingly annoyed with tourists visiting the address so they put up a metal chain asking people not to go on the staircase. Sarah reportedly ignored the sign and took a photo shoot on the steps for her line of shoes earlier in October without getting permission to do so. A source said, “The owners are up in arms as they deal with relentless tourists, and SJP has ignored their requests for an explanation on how she could endorse the shoot, even though ‘no trespassing’ signs are posted. SJP used their house during the years of filming, and now won’t acknowledge that she and her company used the steps and facade, this time without permission, to promote her shoe line.” A rep for Sarah Jessica said she could not be reached to comment on the story.

Google previously addressed their effort to remove the photos by releasing a statement saying, “We’ve removed tens of thousands of pictures within hours of the requests being made — and we have closed hundreds of accounts. The internet is used for many good things. Stealing people’s private photos is not one of them.”

Sam Lufti Defends Himself

Sam Lufti is fully aware of his negative reputation in the media and he wants to set the record straight. The man who has had close ties with Britney Spears, Courtney Love, and most recently, Amanda Bynes, has written an open letter for XO Jane in attempt to explain his connection to the three troubled women.

He writes, “If you read anything in the media right now I’m described one of two ways: “shady” or “Svengali.” Putting aside the racist and anti-Semitic problems of those two words, there is also one other huge issue with them: They are absolutely dead wrong. I’ve worked in Hollywood for a long time, and over the years these experiences have led me to see what happens when too much fame and too much money can sometimes get the best of celebrities. I am a problem solver, and I care about helping people get out of what may seem like some of their more difficult places in life. Which is why you have seen me associated with some of the more famous celebrities when they are in their most trying hours: Britney Spears, Courtney Love and now Amanda Bynes. Also intertwined with all of these women is a lot of media scrutiny and much wrangling over money, control and influence. So it makes sense that my name has been dragged through the mud more times than I can count. People fight dirty in Hollywood. They do what they need to do to come out on top and to claim the seat next to the most powerful. This has never been my M.O. I am a person who loves a good comeback story. I consider myself somewhat of a comeback, and I am also not afraid to get dirty in the process. If I need to be slandered in order to help other people get better — or to help their reputations get better — I have absolutely no problem with that. It’s never been about me. It’s been about them. Courtney asked me to write this in order to help stop some of the misinformation campaigns that have been nonstop over the last few weeks as Bynes has been more in the spotlight than ever. All I can tell you is that Amanda is getting the help that she needs and that I am working closely with her and her family in order to ensure that we can move on from the tabloid sensationalism of her “breakdown” and instead concentrate on what a rare, talented young woman she has always been and continues to be. Amanda is a beautiful, amazing and very strong woman who has been through a lot. So are Courtney and Britney. Like me, they are also survivors. Call me whatever name you need to but please, leave these women alone.”

  • The letter also includes a photo of a text from Courtney showing her support for Sam and claiming that Lynn Spears, Britney’s mother, made up lies about him.
