On Tuesday, Sarah Jessica Parker expressed her outrage about how her surrogate — the woman carrying her twins – had been identified by the tabloids and followed by the paparazzi. Today, Sarah handles the shots taken at her marriage.

"Am I immune to it? No. Do I read it? No," she said. "That doesn't mean I don't have an inkling or that I don't smell it around me… It's hard because things are hurtful and things are shocking."
Being targets for a tabloid is not new ground for Sarah Jessica and Matthew Broderick, who just last summer faced reports about their supposed marital problems. Now, the salacious headlines have gone off on a tangent, outraging Sarah Jessica. The focus: the surrogate mother who is carrying the couple's twins.
"How is Matthew in all of this? Is he furious? Because he doesn't seem like a man that would get furious and want to rip off heads?" Billy asked.
"No, he's furious," Sarah said. "He's angry. It's shocking daily because there are daily if not more-than-daily incidents… As a parent, it's so interesting how differently you function when you have a child. I have a responsibility to somebody far more important than myself. I look [at my son James Wilkie's] face and I think, 'He can't… he doesn't need to know about this. He doesn't need to know what's upsetting me right now. It does him no good. He can't help me. He will only worry.'"
Sarah Jessica is currently away from her family, on the New Mexico set of her upcoming romantic comedy with Hugh Grant, "Did You Hear About The Morgans?"
In August, she'll start shooting the "Sex and The City" movie sequel and she took time to tackle a few questions about the follow up.
"Will Carrie be pregnant?" Billy asked.
"Well, first of all, I really don't know because I haven't seen a script," she said. "I know an outline."
"But you have had discussions with people," Billy commented.
"I know, I know. I can't pretend anymore Billy. I feel like you're looking inside my soul," she laughed. "I won't tell you."
"Have the designers begun falling all over each other to send in the gear?" Billy asked.
"I think it's going to be very interesting – or, it should be — because you know, our country has changed significantly in a year," Sarah Jessica said. "[Carrie] will have been affected and she's not an idiot. She's gonna have to change her thinking about indulgence."
Sarah herself indulged in the ultimate extravagance of the accessory kind a year ago at the film's London premiere.
"The hat heard round the world, do you keep it in a box?" Billy asked. "Does it have its own museum?"
"Do you know where the hat is – it's on tour – in museums," Sarah Jessica revealed. "I think it's traveling in Europe as we speak!"
