Sometimes life imitates art! Sources close to Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon say she had so much in common with her preachy, ambitious onscreen alter ego Miranda Hobbes that she’s going to run for governor of New York! Since hanging up her Manolos, the actress has been active in criticizing current governor, Andrew Cuomo, frequently blasting him for under-funding public schools: “I think that, basically, Governor Cuomo is short-changing the children of New York State,” she said recently on The View. Now, she’s looking to challenge the Democratic politico in next year’s race — and she just may win!
“She’s a household name who really cares about kids and parents,” enthuses a political expert. “She’s an unexpected candidate who could really shake things up.”
