In quirky PSA, Lea Delaria says she’s not Che Diaz in ‘And Just Like That’

This week, Lea DeLaria reminded fans that she would very much like to be excluded from the “And so…” narrative.

The actress, singer and comedian made this clear in a quirky video on her TikTok and Instagram pages, which she called a “public announcement”.

“I just want to say: I am not Che Diaz,” she says in the video. “Thank you for your time.”

Che Diaz is the most talked about new character to appear in And Likewise…, the HBO Max revival of Sex and the City, which premiered in December. Played by Sara Ramirez, Che is a quirky and non-binary comedian who hosts the X, Y, and Me podcast with Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw.

Some viewers indicated that DeLaria, best known for her role as Carrie “Big Boo” Black in the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, looks like Che. DeLaria is as popular in stand-up comedy as the fictional character.

While the video was probably meant to be a joke, DeLaria may have been wise to publicly distance herself from Che. The character has divided many Sex and the City fans in recent weeks after having an affair with Miranda Hobbs (played by Cynthia Nixon).

The backlash came to a head in last week’s episode “Bewitched, Troubled and Confused,” in which Miranda split from her longtime husband Steve Brady (David Eigenberg) in hopes of a more serious relationship with Che.

“It’s no exaggeration how insufferable this character is,” Kevin Fallon wrote in The Daily Beast. “Calling them unwatchable is no exaggeration.”

Meredith Blake of the Los Angeles Times offered a more defensive stance, applauding the writers of “And Just So…” for introducing a character that adds “some much-needed sartorial variety to a show known for its super-feminine style.” ”

It is not yet known whether Che and Miranda have plans for true love. But one thing is for sure: DeLaria will stay away.
