MANTHRAX (noun) A boyfriend who’s so bad he’s hazardous to your health. A no-good guy. A hybrid coined by Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker, bottom), on the July 21 season premiere of HBO’s Sex and the City when Samantha (Kim Cattrall, top) complains about the love of her life. ”I can’t even be around that man, he’s dangerous and toxic,” she says about hotel king Richard Wright (James Remar, left) — whom she caught with another woman at the end of last season doing…a deed that cannot be named in this family mag.
