turn to Sarah Jessica parker making a lot of headlines -- By speaking out against mean girl behavior both on the screen and in real life. ABC's linsey Davis has the story. Reporter: For six successful seasons it wasn't just sex and fashion that made the show "Sex and the city" a cultural landmark but the strength of friendship. You're human. I don't want him to know that. Reporter: That depiction of female camaraderie according to the star of the show is now a thick thing of the past. In the April issue of "British Harper's bizarre" Sarah Jessica parker says "Sex and the city" which stopped airing exactly one decade ago in week was a more innocent time. So much reality television and the women that dominate culture today are pretty unfriendly toward one another. Don't call me stupid. Reporter: Just this week on "The real housewives of Beverly hills" a brawl broke out while the women were away on vacation. Shut up. Stop. Stop, stop, stop. Reporter: A far cry from this "Sex and the city" getaway. Parker, who played the show's beloved Carrie Bradshaw says women loved her character because she was a deeply devoted friend and I think women really respond to that kind of connection. We've all been there. That's for sure. It's literally like a form of feminine bullying. Reporter: Stacy Kaiser agrees that many of the female friendships on TV today are cruel and unsupportive. I do think that women are meaner on television but I think in real life we women have always had it in us to backstab and be mean to other women. Reporter: As for parker, she admits, we're not always the very best friends we can be. But says, I think we all want it. We all work towards having it. And it's actually not just women who parker says are cruel. She says she never Googles herself or reads anything about herself because of the harsh things that people have to say. She says the random cruelty is something that she just doesn't understand and that she wishes we could all just go back to a simpler nicer time. I like that idea. It's when social media becomes decidedly anti-social. That's true. We asked you what you think about all this. Is the mean girl culture worse than ever before? Here's what you had to say. Not even close. 84% said yes, 16% said no.
