She might be only nine, but the Cyrus family apparently thinks it’s time to let producers and agents alike know that Noah Cyrus is a ripe fruit ready to be plucked from the tree…and who knows, with a bit of luck they will take the bait and cast her as the sixth member of Sex And The City.

FYI,  Noah Cyrus was attending Jamie Lee Curtis’s Halloween Party on Saturday. Jailbait costume available at Toys R Us for 29.99. Crak ho make-up kit sold separately for $5.99.
