Cherry dismissed the idea of making a Desperate Housewives film after the show's eighth season, as he had no interest in going down the same path as Sex and the City.
"I'm never sending these gals to Dubai. That's all I'm saying," Cherry said, referring to feature film Sex and the City 2.
"Sex and the City only did, I think, a total of something like 69 episodes. So I always thought that the advantage for them was that they hadn't really plumbed the depths of those characters."
King responded to the criticism on Wednesday, telling reporters: "I don't think [Cherry has] ever made a feature film, so I don't know if he knows what that entails, but the reality is my second movie made almost half a billion dollars.
"It's fine. The reality is I've moved on from that. I'm doing a new show, [2 Broke Girls]. It's the number one comedy."
King insisted that he did not take offence from Cherry's comments, adding: "It doesn't matter. Here's what happens - you create something in the moment that you feel will be good, and then... people's reactions to it or people referencing it years later, it's a compliment."
