Richard Wright/James Remar
Samantha's had many men and one notable woman but few long-term relationships. Richard was one of the exceptions. A successful hotel magnate, he also didn't believe in monogamy. But as their relationship heated up, the couple decided to try exclusivity. Ultimately, Richard cheated. Samantha gave him another chance but broke it off for good after she began seeing a much younger man, Smith Jerrod.

Smith Jerrod/Jason Lewis
Smith was the young hot waiter at "Raw" that Samantha seduced and ultimately fell for. Samantha jump-started his acting career and he supported her through breast cancer. In the first "Sex and the City" movie, Samantha moved to Los Angeles with Smith so he could pursue his burgeoning career. But after realizing how much she missed her single life in New York, the couple separated.
In the new movie, Samantha, who is going through menopause, admits she's over boy toys.
"Who cares about 25?" actress Kim Cattrall, who portrays Samantha, says in the movie. "I'm bored with 25. It's like a young wine. I hate Beaujolais. I don't want to drink it. I think it tastes terrible. I want a nice, full-body wine that's aged gracefully."
From the previews, it appears Samantha will get her wish in the form of a desert romance. And Smith will make a return appearance.
Meanwhile, Lewis has gone on to star in several television series, including "Charmed," "Brothers and Sisters" and "House M.D." He's been linked to actress Rosario Dawson.
