The openly gay star spoke at the annual Breast Cancer Summit on Long Island, N.Y., on Monday, where she detailed her struggle with breast cancer.

During the event, Nixon made a passing reference to her wife, Christine Marinoni, which prompted audience member Pastor Lisa Calabrese to scold the "Sex and the City" actress, saying, "Her speech didn't offer enough hope and she didn't need to speak about her wife when the summit's purpose was to discuss breast cancer," according to the New York Post.
