SATC creator hits back at Housewives

Speaking at a live Television Critics Association event, Housewives creator Marc Cherry yesterday said the end of the show after eight seasons later this year would not be followed by a movie.

Referring to the Middle East-set Sex and the City 2, which received largely negative reviews, Cherry quipped: "I'm just never sending these gals to Dubai."
