Peloton blames shocking ‘Sex and the City’ death on character’s ‘extravagant lifestyle’

Thursday saw the release of the first episode of And Just Like That…, the HBO Max reboot of Sex and the City, and fans were in for a, well, Big surprise.

(Stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happens.)

When Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) is pressured into attending the piano recital of one of Charlotte’s (Kristin Davis) children, she leaves her husband Big/John (Chris Noth) at home for a night exercising on his Peloton, the exercise bike that became wildly popular during the pandemic.

Big suffers a heart attack after a particularly intense workout. Carrie comes home from the concert to find him collapsed in the bathroom with the shower running. He dies in her arms.

“I’m sure ‘SATC’ fans, like me, are saddened by the news that Mr. Big dies of a heart attack,” said Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, a preventative cardiologist and member of Peloton’s health and wellness advisory council, in a statement to The Times. “Mr. Big lived what many would call an extravagant lifestyle — including cocktails, cigars, and big steaks — and was at serious risk as he had a previous cardiac event in Season 6. These lifestyle choices and perhaps even his family history, which often is a significant factor, were the likely cause of his death. Riding his Peloton Bike may have even helped delay his cardiac event.”

It continued: “More than 80% of all cardiac-related deaths are preventable through lifestyle, diet and exercise modifications. And while 25% of heart attacks each year are in patients who already had one (like Mr. Big), even then they are very, very treatable. The lesson here is, KNOW YOUR NUMBERS! It’s always important to talk to your doctor, get tested, and have a healthy prevention strategy. The good news is Peloton helps you track heart rate while you ride, so you can do it safely.”

Kanye West Asks Kim Kardashian to ‘Run Right Back to Me, Baby’ During Benefit Concert

Kanye West is making another public plea for reconciliation to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian West.  While performing at the Free Larry Hoover concert Thursday at the Los Angeles Coliseum, West, 44, dedicated his song “Runaway” to Kardashian, 41.  After singing the lyrics, “I need you to run right back to me, baby,” the rapper added, “more specifically, Kimberly.”

West’s onstage proclamation comes after the Yeezy designer posted a five-minute “Thanksgiving Prayer” to his Instagram last month in which he opened up about his regrets and his wish to reunite his family.
