Kidman Turns Down A NYC Weekend With Urban

Keith Urban was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on February 10th, but there was no sign of his gaunt wife, actress Nicole Kidman.

The 2005 CMA Entertainer of the Year performed his current hit Stupid Boy, and his Grammy-nominated single Once In A Lifetime.

The actress, who won an Oscar in 2003, was expected to be there. SNL host and 2007 Oscar nominee Forest Whitaker said he was looking forward to meeting her. Her absence at both the rehearsal and live taping of the show last Saturday could not be explained.

The actress apparently took in a showing of Peter O'Toole's Venus with an unidentified, nondescript male companion in Santa Monica on February 9th. Could her frequent work-outs with a personal trainer also have interfered with her plans to join her husband in NYC for the weekend?

Earlier last week, Urban performed at a benefit for St Jude's Children's Hospital in Chicago. The February 8th concert featured a very relaxed and happy Urban. One of the highlights of the evening was when Urban forgot the words to his hit Making Memories of Us which he was widely reported to have sung to his bride at their June 2006 wedding.

Since sightings at Sushi Roku and the Polo Club Cafe in LA late last month, the couple has not been seen together in public.

One wonders if the newlyweds will be able to coordinate their busy schedules to spend their first Valentine's Day as husband and wife together. Urban has several promotional appearances for his latest multi-platinum selling CD Love Pain & The Whole Crazy Thing planned for the rest of the week.

Urban will be kicking off a visit to Toronto on Wednesday, February 14th with a live 4-song performance on Canada AM, Canada's #1 TV show. Later in the day, the singer will be heading to a "secret" show in downtown Toronto for another performance which includes a meet and greet for members of his Monkeyville fan club.

Urban ends his hectic week with an appearance on The Today Show in NYC on Friday the 16th.

Rumors that Ms Kidman has been exercising vigorously with her trainer...and when I say exercise, I'm talking the bumpty bumpty type...for some months. While her hubby was in rehab...it sounds like she was not exactly supportive, in the fidelity department, if you get my drift. Who knows if this is true...but interesting that all the rumors are about Keith and his lovin' ways...but it sounds like Ms Kidman may have been doing her own naked M&M eating.

This one is spot on with the facts folks. Spot on. When will this farce of a marriage end. I hope soon for Keith's sake.

Isn't it funny how he can be the brilliant entertainer on stage when his "wife" isn't with him? I have seen him perform personally when she has been there and when she hasn't, and I have seen the difference in his performance. Note to Nic - stay home - we get a better show then!

For having such a loving and happy marriage, why did she pick a director over her husband? This was Keith's first US concert after rehab. Could she not show him 100 percent support that night? A marriage goes both ways - she should be showing the same amount of support in his career as he does in her career.

I have also heard about her "work-outs" with the trainer. I'm counting the days until Keith puts a boot up her a$$!

Isn't it possible that they have agreed to keep work work and private private? Maybe this is what he learned in that time he was in prison, I mean rehab. He lost his focus in a HUGE way when she came in to his life, and he has regained that through everything he learned about himself in rehab. And what rumours about the bumpty bump with the trainer are you talking about? Oh, maybe just this one that YOU are trying to spread.

There are many photos of Nic and her "trainer" and Nic and her "driver" out and about in the city. Coffee, movies, etc...
One has to wonder why she can't leave her career for a nanosecond to support her husband as he winds up to start his very over due tour schedule. But then he does so much better when she is not on the tour with him--he has fun and actually enjoys playing.
On second thought, maybe she is showing her support by staying away. I guess we can only hope and pray she continues to stay away from Keith's tour and remain focused on herself.
Somehow, I don't think she'll have too much trouble doing that.

If she's not with him you blast her, if she's with him you blast her. She's damned if she does, and damned if she doesn't. What an ugly lot you've all become.

We just want her gone, knucklehead.

Dunno about damned if she does or doesn't but I do know she's a damned silly mare. We shouldn't be suprised she wasn't there at his first concert since rehab, as it should be all about HER dont ya know.

NK's flagrant disregard for anybody but herself is what is damning her

I was glad she wasn't there. She wasn't there before he went into rehab. She wasn't there during rehab...and don't lecture me that she might have been there and we didn't know about it. She was traveling around the world and if she did visit, we had a pictoral diary of it. She hasn't been there generally...so I'm neither surprised or unhappy about it. I just want Keith to get on with his life...look happy for a change and hopefully BE HAPPY. The relationship is poison.

Funny how his alleged infidelities make every tabloid known ... and her alleged infidelities will just slip right under the radar. She is teflon.

No, maybe she just pays better....

Pretty telling that he forgot the words to "their" song, don't you think?

How many think that she will show up in Toronto on the 14th? I can't decide. On the one hand, she's so selfish that it seems unlikely she'd fly out to support the hubby, especially since it would all be about him and his career most of the day.

But, on the other hand I can't see her missing a photo opportunity either! And Valentine's Day is a perfect chance to play the happy couple and show how together they still are.

It's Australia week celebrations in Toronto too so they could get 2 for 1. He's supposed to be given all kinds of awards by EMI Canada while there, so she may not like him getting all the attention.

Rumor has it she's been undergoing more plastic surgery, thus the reason for her absence! lol

Well...I sure hope NK gets those thin lips done. They could use some plumping up. LOL

I personally hope she leaves him alone for Valentines' Day and let's him enjoy himself promoting his music and performing. When she's around, he looks out of place and his demeanor changes.

You have got to be kidding me! Is the alien look in nowadays?

Even though she wasn't there for SNL, Keith looked worried and uncertain.

When you're happy, it shows. And when you're not, that shows too.

Well, by all accounts, he was happy in Toronto yesterday! And the wife was not there. Their 1st Valentine's Day and they spent it apart...just as they spent Christmas apart, and Thansgiving. But they keep trying to get the "they are so together" message out. Sometimes actions speak louder than words!

Although I did like these words from Keith's show last night - when he called YTOM his "Screw you Valentine's Day" song!
