Andy Cohen is defending Sarah Jessica Parker after the feud between her and her "Sex and the City" costar Kim Cattrall turned intense over the weekend.

After news broke that Cattrall's missing brother Chris was found dead, Parker expressed support and sympathy for Cattrall and her family. But Cattrall wasn't having any of it, taking to Instagram and posting an image of text that reads, "I don't need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker." She captioned the photo by writing,

My Mom asked me today "When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?" Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven't already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona.




Cattrall, who played Samantha on "Sex and the City," also added a link to a New York Post article that detailed alleged "mean girls culture" on the set of the hit HBO show.

Cohen is adding his two cents on the feud, speaking out about it on his "Radio Andy" Sirus XM show, People magazine points out.

"I thought it was fake. I was like, 'There's no way Kim Cattrall has posted this on her Instagram.' This is a woman who is in the middle of grieving the loss of her brother, which is tragic and sad," he said on his Monday episode. "She accused [Sarah Jessica Parker] of exploiting a tragedy and I've been getting all these tweets from people."

"She was doing press all last week for 'Divorce,'" he went on to say. "And you know, guess what? When you're doing press, you're asked the same questions about what's going on. So people, I'm sure, were like, 'What do you think of what happened?' And she simply and concisely expressed her condolences.

"I would not call that exploiting a tragedy," Cohen added. "What was she supposed to do? Say something bad? I don't understand,"

Cohen later said he doesn't like that people are calling the actresses feud a "catfight."

"There's only one person fighting here," he said.
