Cathy on And Just Like That

Fans are going WILD over this insane IRL detail in And Just Like That

And it's got a whole lot to do with Jack Berger and Aidan's ex-wife!

The casting of Aidan Shaw’s ex-wife in And Just Like That has broken the fourth wall and sent fans spiralling, because of the mindblowing real-life link to the actress.

In season two, episode nine, Carrie Bradshaw is introduced to her on-and-off boyfriend Aidan’s ex-wife Cathy (Rosemarie DeWitt) for the first time. While the meeting may seem awkies enough, in reality, it’s SO much more.

Fans of the show may remember that DeWitt played a lawyer named Fern at Miranda’s law firm in Sex and the City.

Sex and the City. Max.

However, hardcore SATC fans will know that the casting of DeWitt runs so much deeper. She is actually the IRL wife of Ron Livingston, who played Carrie’s long-term boyfriend Berger in Sex and the City. Whew, that is some Taylor Swift-style Easter Egg dropping.

What did fans say about the casting of Rosemarie DeWitt as Aidan’s ex-wife?

Because absolutely nothing gets past SATC fans, Twitter (X?!) erupted with hundreds of users posting about the real-life crossover.

Are Ron Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt still together?

Yep! Rosemarie and Berger, erm, Ron Livingstone are happily married and share two children Gracie James and Esperanza Mae.

What was Carrie and Berger’s storyline in Sex and the City?

Berger was one of Carrie’s long-term boyfriends on the show. However, he’s most famously remembered for dumping her via a post-it note. The note read: “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me.”

Sex and the City. Max.

Even two decades on from the infamous scene, it’s one of the most memorable parts of the iconic season. Speaking in a 2018 interview with Today, Livingstone said that the age of post-it break ups is long gone.

“There’s something about being in the age of texting, and Tinder where, like, a handwritten Post-it note is actually kind of old fashioned and quaint,” he said. “You put some effort into that.”
