A Young Samantha Jones is coming to ‘The Carrie Diaries’ »
I kinda obsess over ‘The Carrie Diaries’ – in part cause it reminds me of my youth. Love the TV show,and it’s not just because Austin Butler is pretty to look at. I was excited to hear that next season we have something even more to look forward to, they are casting a younger version of Samantha Jones. Looks like I wasn’t the only one excited, because star Anna Sophia Robb is too.
“I’m really, really excited,” Robb said while speaking at the CW’s upfront presentation. ”I had to keep it a secret, but I think it’s going to be so much fun. I’m looking forward to seeing where that goes.”
In HBO’s ‘Sex and The City’ Kim Catrall played the role of Jones. She is the character best known to fans as the wild on unbashful best friend of Carrie Bradshaw. the show plans to welcome the young Samantha into the fold as the cousin of the mean Donna LaDonna, showing fans how Carrie and Samantha first met.
A mention of Carrie’s other Best friend, Stanford Blatch, was also mentioned in the season one finale. The role of Blatch has also yet to be cast. After moving ‘The Carrie Diaries’ to Friday nights it looks as though the CW is in the hopes of turning the show and its ratings around with the sophomore season.
The CW Does Something Right and Renews ‘The Carrie Diaries’ »
Super Excited that The CW did something right and renewed THE CARRIE DIARIES and NIKITA. According to Deadline..
And just like we predicted a month ago, the CW has renewed all of its existing series. The last to get the nod today are The Carrie Diaries and Nikita. The network is not confirming the sizes of the pickups, but Carrie’s is automatically a 13-episode order as it is a midseason show, and I hear Nikita will return for a six-episode cycle.
The Carrie Diaries, episode 13 recap »
This is the last episode of the season. It starts with a recap of what’s happened in the previous episodes.
Carrie wakes up and she remembers she broke up with Sebastian. And she can’t even be angry but now she’s miserable.
She’s in the diner with Mouse and Maggie, talking about the break up. And the bad part is that she’s bought a dress and she doesn’t have someone to take her to prom. Mouse isn’t sure she’s going to prom with Wes, because her parents won’t approve of him. They decide to go together.
When they’re at the diner, Maggie’s cheat date walks in with his FIANCE. The bastard!!! Maggie tries to wave it off, but of course she’s upset!
Tom is whistling and going to the “gym”. Of course he’s not going there, but he makes it sound to Carrie that he loves it. He’s going to his lady friend, but he won’t stay the night because he doesn’t want to get caught. They’re talking about them “coming out” as a couple, but Tom’s not sure because of his children.
Carrie’s at Interview and I’m lost on the conversation because of the hideous eighties clothes and the HUGE mobile phone. Larissa goes on a trip and she invites Carrie to live at her loft.
When Carrie comes home, she finds Dorrit with her boyfriend AND SEBASTIAN!!!! They’re talking about Dorrit and her boyfriend (whom Sebastian knows from private school). And then he says he misses Carrie. They apologise and say what they hate about their relationship and Sebastian says he loves her. AND THEN SHE FINALLY SAYS IT BACK. Hallelujah.
Dorrit and her boyfriend make out and Dorrit wants to take it further, but he doesn’t. Dorrit wants to know how it’ll feel and to get it over with, but he wants to wait.
Maggie, Walt and Carrie are walking through the hallway and Carrie asks them if they’ll be mad if she’s going with Sebastian. Maggie and Walt decide to go together. Maggie says something about Sebastian taking care of Carrie, but we all know she’s hiding something. And she spills that she and Sebastian saw Tom and his girlfriend making out. Carrie gets mad at Sebastian because he hid it from her, because he wanted to protect her.
And of course, the reason Tom didn’t want to tell his children about his girlfriend, that’s exactly what Carrie thinks. And then Carrie starts to think about the differences between her and Sebastian and then she starts to doubt their relationship. How her heart hurts because she loves him so much, but she doesn’t want to live in pain again. And I think they broke up again? Carrie runs into Maggie and she’s upset how they hid it from her.
Maggie tells Sebastian that she isn’t jealous, because she really is happy for Carrie, but she’s insecure about herself. Because guys don’t want her. And then Sebastian shares that Walt doesn’t like girls.
Walt, Mouse and Carrie are in the diner and Maggie walks up to them, completely losing it because she now knows Walt is gay. And then she finds out Carrie knows as well. They have a huge fight and Maggie leaves.
Carrie’s getting ready for a party for Larissa, while she’s supposed to be at the prom. She asks Tom if she can stay at Larissa’s afterwards. Tom agrees, because Walt’s coming as well.
Tom’s going to the “gym” again and Carrie voices her opinion on how she thinks Tom should spend more time with her and Dorrit, and that he’s spending an awful lot of time at the “gym”.
Dorrit’s at her boyfriend’s house and he’s lit a whole lot of candles and put rose pedals on the bed, especially for her. And now she’s crying.
Mouse is getting ready for prom with her tiny date. He looks like such a nerd and they agree they don’t even want to be together, going to the prom. Mouse finds out that she’s the best thing that’s ever happened to the family, as they’re from a village and have been working like madmen there. Her success is everything for the family.
Walt and Carrie are at the party and Walt is talking to Bennet about being gay.
Dorrit’s boyfriend is saying how they can wait if Dorrit’s not ready. But she tells him she has never felt happier and doesn’t want to wait. And then they make out.
Maggie and Sebastian are at some bar together, and Sebastian buys her a drink.
Carrie and Larissa are talking about Carrie’s breakup with Sebastian and how she wants to be happy. Is it just me or is Carrie too young to drink? Everyone’s drinking like it’s such a normal thing.
Carrie dreams about being married and having kids, but Larissa predicts it’s not her life. She believes that they’re not their parents and they should be grateful for their parents, but to make her own life. Carrie realises she wants to be with Sebastian, because she is madly in love with him.
Maggie and Sebastian are getting drunk and Maggie’s rambling about her future, or the one she doesn’t have. And of course they kiss. Because Maggie doesn’t want to be alone tonight.
Carrie walks up to Sebastian’s house, all excited, because she’s gonna tell her she wants him. He invites her in and she declares her love for him. He tries to say something, but she shuts him up and says she wants to be with him.
Tom and Deb are in bed and they’re talking about their relationship. He knows Carrie is not ready for him to date yet, maybe in a few months.
Sebastian and Carrie are making out, but Sebastian doesn’t want to take it any further and just lay there holding her.
Maggie walks into the diner to find Wes and she’s told her parents that she wants to be with Wes and not the Chinese neighbour kid. AND THEY DANCE TO BRYAN ADAMS. Oh the memories. I totally forgot about that song.
Carrie comes home, alone and then Maggie walks in with a sad face. That means trouble!
Walt and Bennet are walking around New York and Walt kisses him!!! Bennet doesn’t want to kiss with him, because he’s not 18 yet and Bennet feels he’ll be taking advantage of him.
Maggie tells Carrie about the kiss and of course she’s upset. Carrie says Maggie’s not the victim and that it’s always about her, that she needs drama in her life. I am just marvelling about Carrie’s dress. It’s so cute.
But anyway, Carrie tells Maggie to go because she doesn’t think she’s a good friend. Carrie stays on the couch for ages, the phone keps ringing, because Sebastian calls and she doesn’t pick up.
Dorrit walks in with a huge smile and finds Carrie on the couch and tries to console her. Dorrit is happy and Carrie tries to warn her, but she’s glad Dorrit’s happy. The doorbell rings and it’s Sebastian. Dorrit opens the door and tells him Carrie’s not home.
Mouse’s parents meet Wes, Walt is happy with Bennet and Maggie is making out with her cheat date.
Carrie talks to Tom about the “gym” and she tells him that she wants him to be happy and how she doesn’t want to meet the “gym” yet, but he should go more often.
Carrie then asks him if she can stay at Larissa’s loft, and of course Walt will be staying with her. Tom doesn’t say no to that and says he’ll think about it.
Walt and Carrie are at the loft and Carrie is smiling like a madwoman because she’s really happy.
THE END. I’m kinda sad that we have to wait until September or something for the new season, because I really love this show.

The Hottie Austin Butler Departs LA with his Girlfriend »
The Carrie Diaries, episode 12 recap »
This episode is called “A first time for everything”, and starts as usual with a recap of what’s happened in the previous episodes.
Sebastian and Carrie are playing Trivial Pursuit (OMG I loved that game!). I don’t think I’ve ever played the game with a guy with such smoldering eyes as Sebastian, though. But.. HE SAYS HE LOVES HER. And then she replies she wants to have sex with him. Hahahaha, great reply, darling. And I’m dancing because they’re playing “Like a virgin”.
Mouse and Carrie are talking about Carrie’s reply and Carrie feels so upset she’s ruined it. She loves him and she wants to have sex with him.
Thomas walks in and Mouse rolls her eyes. She thinks if she’s hooking up with him that she won’t get into Harvard.
The phone rings at Carrie’s house and Tom and Dorrit both rush to the phone. But it’s Deb, the lady Tom’s made out with and he’s not sure if they’re dating or not. They are totally flirting and it’s kind of weird.
Dorrit is at the record store and they’re smoking something. Talking about books and politics and everything. And make out.
Carrie is at Interview and I keep staring at the computers which are painted in the same pattern as the walls. They’re talking about Madonna and they’re doing an issue about her. And Carrie’s saying that she can be the Material Girl. Oh dear, I love this show so much.
Carrie’s inviting Sebastian to the Madonna concert and they’re gonna stay in a hotel together that night. But she still has to get her dad’s permission. Of course she’s lying about who’s coming with her, but Tom’s got a secret idea as well.
Dorrit walks in and she doesn’t have any make up on! Because the boy of course told her she doesn’t need the make up. Of course that’s true! Pay attention everyone! Carrie’s questioning Dorrit and she says how she doesn’t want her to change for a guy.
Mouse has a new idea for Africa and nobody really likes it. The only one staying is Thomas and of course he’s flirting with her.
Carrie and Sebastian are on their way to New York and while Sebastian’s complaining they’re on the train, he’s happy holding hands with her. Carrie’s still trying to say I love you back, but it’s not the perfect moment yet.
It’s Madonna’s launch party and I’m secretly dying and I wanna go back in time so I could be there. Carrie’s dressed perfectly. Carrie is on the VIP list, but Sebastian isn’t. Carrie’s trying to get him in.
Thomas and Mouse are packing up chocolate bars and she’s asking him why he’s there. She thinks he likes her because of her grades. He says he likes her for who she is and she’s trying to be angry and pretend she doesn’t like him and then kisses him like no other.
Tom is asking advice about his date from Max (who’s name I still don’t know) and he’s in the car with a HUGE cell phone. Hilarious.
Carrie’s still trying to get Sebastian into the VIP area and he’s convincing her that it’s not a big deal. Carrie’s going into the VIP area to look for Larissa. The way she made this hand gesture, it was just like SATC Carrie. Brilliant.
Carrie’s coworker is trying to give her advice about getting Sebastian into the VIP area. Somehow he talked her into going to this huge guy to get his wristband. She’s talking to the guy and really she’s ranting and it turns out, the guy knows the guy with the list.
Mouse and Thomas have done something, but they’re still half dressed, so I don’t know what’s happened.
Dorrit is in the diner and Donna’s trying to talk to her and somehow I’m still distracted by Donna’s lips. Of course Donna’s trying to explain that’s perfectly normal to change for a guy, but it really isn’t.
At the party, Sebastian’s drinking and Carrie’s apologizing, but at least they’re getting both in the VIP area.
Tom’s at Deb’s house, of course, and she’s showing him her bedroom. Of course that’s for a reason.
Carrie’s coworker is panicking about how people are leaving and they still need quotes and she’ll get into the magazine with her name. She’s still weird about leaving Sebastian. She apologizes to him, but you can still see that he isn’t happy.
She’s interviewing the writer of “Like a virgin”. He’s advicing her to go after Sebastian.
Tom’s at Deb’s house and he needs to go to the bathroom. NAKED. Of course he runs into Deb’s son, who’s acting like it’s the most normal thing ever. Tom’s shocked and he gets dressed because he doesn’t want to be there when her son’s there. Of course she gets upset and breaks up with him.
Dorrit’s back at her boyfriend and of course he’s the perfect boyfriend because he doesn’t want to hurt her feelings and now she wants to have sex with him.
Thomas is following Mouse around school. Mouse gets all angry because she doesn’t want to lose herself in the relationship, because she’s done that before.
Sebastian’s angry with Carrie because she thinks it’s the perfect night and he thinks it’s all about her and how he’s annoyed with her. He just wanted to be with her instead of being at a party or in the VIP room. Of course he’s angry that she hasn’t said “I love you” back. He believes she has to think about everything. And of course, Carrie says that it may be better to break up. And so they do.
Carrie goes to Mouse to talk about the break up and how she’s sorry it happens and how it hurts. Mouse promises it’s going to be better, but when, they both don’t know.
Tom’s at the diner and of course he walks into Deb. He apologizes because he does get the situation and he feels he’s screwed up. But, Deb wants to make up and says fighting happens when you’re dating. They make up again! Now all we need is Sebastian and Carrie to get back together and it’s all perfect.
Thomas is at school, when it’s a Saturday, because he’s joining the gardening club, of which Mouse is the President of most of the clubs at school. And he wants to be with Mouse. He asks her if she really doesn’t like him and then asks her out for a date.
Dorrit’s bringing her boyfriend to her room and she finds out he really likes her, and everything about her.
Carrie’s trying to write, but she can’t write because she’s so sad. And in the meanwhile, some bad version of Like a Virgin is playing. I would be sad too if I had to listen to this version. Quite depressing. Plus she’s not with Sebastian anymore, that’d make me sad too. And that’s the end of this episode.
I really hope the last episode of this season will be better. Gees. Now I’m all sad. And lonely.
The Carrie Diaries, episode 11 recap »
This episode is called “Identity crisis”. As always, this episode starts with a recap of what’s happened in the previous episodes.
It’s spring and it’s the perfect time to try something new. And of course with the soundtrack of “My Sharona” and I’m dancing in my seat. Carrie’s working at Interview all week and if she’ll do a great job, she’ll get hired for a full time position in the summer.
Mouse is full on basketball team manager and she loves it. When Maggie sees her ID, she wants one too. But Mouse thinks that’s illegal.
Sebastian’s mother walks in the school and she’s completely devastated because his father’s broken up with her again. Or something.
When Carrie hears about the details of Sebastian’s parents sex life, she’s grossed out. That is a thing you should never have to hear as a child, haha. Carrie’s completely excited about the week at Interview magazine. I’m excited about all the eighties music! Plus the decorated computers, hilarious.
Carrie picks up the phone and it’s Andy Warhol’s assistent with something that Carrie’s confused about. I’m sure she’ll have to do something and she’ll screw it up. Of course Larissa is the only one who can do the job and now Carrie has to do it. She gets in the store and the shop assistent is saying she can only give the package to Larissa. But she’s never seen Larissa, so Carrie pretends to be her.
Mouse has called the team back during spring break to talk about the team.
Tom is at the yoga center, trying a meditation class, or to meet women? But there’s only one cute woman and there’s another guy who’s there to meet chicks. But when he tries to relax, the hot lady is chewing her gum like a horse (don’t you hate that? I get so annoyed when people do that! Chew your guy with your mouth closed!).
Walt is at Interview for a lunch with Carrie, but she’s still gone. Now he’s getting lunch with Carrie’s colleague. Carrie’s still at the store, completely feeling the Larissa persona and looking like a complete different person. She’s on the phone with Sebastian, and his parents are having sex. Carrie gets all the clothes she’s just tried on, as a bribe to get them on the cover of Interview. I wish that was me. I need a new wardrobe!
Mouse is trying to talk strategy with the team, but the team is fighting and Thomas is sending them all away to talk to Mouse, to stop her.
Tom’s at the meditation class and he’s flipping out because of the lady chewing her gum. That could so be me!
Carrie’s talking to her colleague on the phone, to see if Larissa’s back yet. She asks him if she could take the clothes and he thinks she should.
The package arrives and the lady bringing the package is all pissed off because apparently Larissa has slept with her boyfriend. And then Carrie tells her she’s not Larissa and the lady at the store freaks out too. Carrie runs off with the package. I think I would’ve done the same thing!
Tom’s at the diner and has rang the chewing lady to apologize. The lady doesn’t know what she’s done wrong and Tom’s so annoyed with her. And then they have sex. Like you do.
Mouse is in the hallway when Donna walks by. And she asks Donna what’s gone on with the basketball team. Turns out that Donna dated two of the guys at the same time and the guys found out and fought together.
Sebastian’s given Maggie a false ID. Sebastian tells Maggie about his parents fighting and turns out Maggie’s parents fought a lot too. And then they see Tom making out in the car.
Carrie’s back at Interview magazine, looking all stressed out. She tells the story to the guys and they open the package because they think there is cocaine in the package. Turns out Andy’s wig is in the package! When they try to deliver the package, they end up in a child’s clothing store. The wrong location, they think. Until they hear music.
Sebastian and Maggie are in the diner, still grossed out from seeing Tom making out. They talk about whether they should tell Carrie or not. They decide not to tell her.
Mouse walks in the diner and looks all stressed. She sees the basketball team eating French fries and grilled cheese sandwiches and she freaks out. She wants the team to grow some balls. And then the team fires her.
When Sebastian gets home, he finds his mother crying. She needs to talk to him about his father, that he want her to leave. She needs Sebastian to fix it all. He gets all angry because she obviously doesn’t care about him, because all she does is fight with his father and she’s selfish. She wants to do what’s right for the family, so Sebastian suggests that might be that they get a divorce.
Carrie pretends to be Larissa again to get in the club but the security guy knows Larissa and so they don’t get in. She tries again and now that she’s honest, she can get the guy to get Andy’s assistent and she delivers the package.
Walt leaves because he is upset that Bennet was talking to another guy (or was it because he stayed back at the club? I’m confused). Carrie asks him what’s up and he tries to tell her that he’s gay. Carrie asks if Walt has a crush on Bennet, and he doesn’t know. Carrie says she doesn’t care if he’s gay or not because he’s a good person and that’s all she cares about.
The next day, Mouse is at school again, she runs up to Thomas in his short shorts. She tells him it was a set up to get fired so the team could get back together.
Sebastian and Carrie are in the diner talking about Carrie’s job and that everything’s fine and that her summer job may be safe.
Sebastian’s mother is back with her boyfriend again and he’s glad the fighting’s over.
Carrie’s back in New York and I’m loving her shoes! But she then gets asked the way by a tourist and she’s all happy they see her as a New Yorker. I’ve so done the same in London, haha!
And then she realises she gave the tourist the wrong directions and runs after him. And that’s the end of the episode!
AnnaSophia Robb Talks ‘The Carries Diaries’ Season Finale »
Don’t know about you but I love ‘The Carrie Diaries’. I love AnnaSophia Robb and think she makes an amazing Carrie Bradshaw.
She shot the cover of Seventeen Magazine and talked about the show. Ladies, I think we all may need to give up on Austin Butler being single, cause according to Anna, he’s INLOVE.
“One of the biggest challenges for us is to be sexy and flirty on camera because we just can’t take each other seriously any more. Kissing on camera isn’t that fun! But he’s so cute!” she said. “He [Austin] talks about Vanessa [Hudgens] all the time. They’re crazy in love! I don’t think I’m ready to be that in love. They put so much time into their relationship, and I’m too selfish right now.”
