Sex and the City 2's revolving door of celebrity cameos continues this week with a gay icon, an ex-boyfriend, a Hollywood bombshell and a teen star. It all started with Liza Minnelli, who is said to have played an intricate part in the wedding of Anthony (Mario Cantone) and Stanford (Willie Garson) which filmed earlier this week at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn. According to OK!, "Liza Minnelli sings [Beyonce's 'Single Ladies'] at the weddingthe same wedding where Sarah Jessica Parker plays the best man!"
On Monday, Jason Lewis, a.k.a Samantha's ex Smith Jerrod, was spotted on the NYC set of SATC2 with Kim Cattrall, reigniting hope among "Team Smith" fans that the couple may get back together in the sequel.
Filming for Sex and the City 2 is officially underway in New York City, and the shoots have been causing the expected chaos all over the city. On the first day of shooting, near 84th Street and Park Ave, one onlooker told the NY Daily News that security was tight thanks to hordes of fans watching from the sidelines. The witness added, "They looked more like they were protecting the President than Sarah Jessica Parker."
On Wednesday, SJP and Chris Noth, aka Mr. Big, filmed a scene at Hogan and Hartson’s at 875 Third Ave. The law firm was transformed into Big's on-screen office for the movie, and thankfully this inside location kept the crowds thin.

Neil Patrick Harris alert! The Best and The Brightest starring NPH is filming on the Upper East Side of Manhattan today. The movie will be shooting a scene near E. 71 St and Madison Ave, about a block east of Central Park. The comedy, which has actually been filming in Philadelphia for the past few weeks, is about a young couple who have recently moved to Manhattan and suddenly realize the lengths they must go to in order to get their young daughter into a private kindergarten.
Today's filming location is also just around the corner from Lumi, 963 Lexington Ave, a small Italian restaurant that will seem familiar to Sex and the City fans. The scene in the movie where Charlotte runs into Big at a restaurantthat was at Lumi. And when she went into labor while arguing with Big, that was filmed on the street in front of Lumi.
Besides its big-screen notoriety, Lumi also offers classic Italian dishes at a reasonable price, well, reasonable for the UES anyway. Their dinner menu includes spaghetti with garlic, olive oil, tomato and red pepper for $19 and hand-made ravioli filled with veal in a wild mushroom sauce for $21.50.
Anthony Bourdain may fly Continental, but Kim Cattrall doesn't mess with American carriers, a tipster tells us. The "Sex and the City" star was spotted in Virgin Atlantic's Upper Class lounge on the way to New York after enjoying Nelson Mandela's birthday party in London.
Says a passenger:
She looked gorgeous--even in the black Virgin sleep suit. Sorry I don't have any pix.
Funny: We never thought of Samantha as the classy one.

"Sex and the City"-themed bus tours were rolling around New York long before the movie came out. So Radar Magazine sent two intrepid reporters to ride along with On Location Tours and see the streets the way Carrie and her friends would. And as you can imagine, the tour took them vibrator shopping, bar hopping and stoop-spotting.
Gather your gals (and Anthony Marentino-types!) and get fabulous because the big day is finally here. Sex and the City opens today and we can hardly wait to run to the theater in our Manolos and outrageously patterned prints! All of the ladies--Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha--make it back to the big screen.
The movie picks up about three years after the series ended, with Carrie as Big's fiancee, Miranda as a Brooklyn mom and Charlotte as a happy adoptive parent. Samantha meanwhile has decamped to Malibu with the ever-stunning Smith. Of course there are cosmo-laden reunions, a big wedding day to plan, fights, changes and all the inner dialogue a gal could ask for.
In the spirit of the sexiest city of all, we offer you some spots to check out in The Big Apple, where the film was mostly shot. Don't forget your tutu!
Where to Host a Smashing Party: New York Public Library, 5th Avenue The main branch of the NYPL has it all: old school glamour, stunning architecture and plenty of marble steps to ascend. You can rent it out for private parties (event planners are required) or just visit any day of the week from 11 am-6 pm. This is where the big event in the film takes place...
Where to Check in: Hotel Giraffe This hotel may look unassuming, but the building's Piano Suite area was actually transformed into Big's apartment for sections of the movie. With interiors inspired by the 1920s and 30s, rooms feature 10-foot ceilings, original photographs and Egyptian cotton sheets and towels. Book their "Diva's Only" weekend package (at $445 per person) and get all kinds of groups treats like prosecco, a pole dancing class and manicures.
More, you ask? Why, just keep reading....

With the release of the "Sex and the City" movie, a new wave of tourists is poised to enter the Big Apple with one question in mind: Where would Carrie shop? But she's hardly the first person who has looked at the fleet of taxis and seen a shopping-bag-friendly mode of transportation.
Of course with the influx of cheap-chic mall stores like H&M and Forever 21, New York trends reach the rest of the country much faster than they used to, but there's nothing like indulging in a little retail therapy in New York. Let these movie scenes get you started:
Tiffany & Co., as seen in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Sex and the City." Fully 90 percent of the foot traffic in this grande-dame store on weekends is comprised of curious tourists, not engagement-ready moguls. Still, even if you can't afford the wares, window shopping is free. (BYO croissant.) 727 Fifth Ave.
Love ain't so grand after all for Carrie and Big... errr, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth in these promo shots for the upcoming "Sex and the City" movie. What, Bradshaw couldn't get hold of the "Darjeeling Limited" suitcases?
The film's trailer and spoilers posted on the Internet suggest that Carrie and Big--uh, big spoiler alert!--get married, or close to the altar at least.
Also, Carrie takes a tropical trip with Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. No wonder she needs so much luggage! Good thing she has Big around to haul it all--keeps her looking way more classy than notorious over-packer Paris Hilton.
