Younger Olsen sister nixes 'Sex and the City' rumors

Elizabeth Olsen may love the HBO series “Sex and the City,” but that doesn’t mean the “Silent House” actress feels she could fit in with show’s four single New York City women.

In an interview with OK! magazine, the 22-year-old sister of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen denied rumors that she will play a younger version of “Sex and the City” lead Carrie Bradshaw in a potential prequel film.

“My friend who loves blogs told me about [the reports] when it was happening, and it’s not real,” Miss Olsen told reporters at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Luncheon in Southern California over the weekend.

The New York University graduate went on to say she enjoys “Sex and the City” but doesn’t have what it takes to pull off the role.

“I love 'Sex and the City,' and I would never pretend like I could ever be one of those ladies. … No one is as cool as Carrie Bradshaw!” Miss Olsen said.

She said something similar to InStyle.com on Friday, “I’m like the biggest fan of 'Sex and the City,' and that’s why I would never do that!”

Earlier this summer, the Daily Caller interviewed “Sex and the City” author Candace Bushnell, who came to D.C. to promote the book’s prequel, “Summer and the City.” During the sit-down chat, Miss Bushnell addressed the buzz around possible “Sex and the City” prequel flicks and said she’d be interested in seeing 19-year-old Disney star Selena Gomez portray a young Charlotte York.

Miss Bushnell’s novels “Summer and the City” and “The Carrie Diaries” track Bradshaw’s teenage, high school and travel adventures before the fictional character becomes a well-regarded New York City sex columnist.

Levi Johnston’s sister says pregnancy was planned

Mercede Johnston, the sister of Levi Johnston, says Bristol Palin’s pregnancy was no accident.

Levi never liked [Bristol] to drink since it just made her more promiscuous,” Miss Johnston said in an interview with Playboy, according to the New York Post. “Bristol’s pregnancy [with Tripp] wasn’t … an accident. She and Levi planned it. They were trying to conceive for months.”

Miss Johnston made a similar statement last summer, when she wrote on her personal blog, “[Bristol] and Levi were sexually active and trying to conceive a child. … As hard as it is for many of you to believe, they were indeed TRYING. It was NOT an accident!”

But then Miss Johnston, who reportedly posed nude for Playboy’s September issue, went on to say Miss Palin hoped Mr. Johnston wouldn’t be the father of her unborn baby.

Miss Johnston said Miss Palin had sent a text message to Mr. Johnston, saying, “Ever since the moment I found out I was pregnant, I prayed to God you weren’t the father.”
