PR 101 on Nicole Kidman and Her Happy Marriage

We get what we wish for.


In a direct response to those of us who question the stability of the Kidman /Urban union after the photos on Friday and Sunday everything "appears" to be fine and dandy.

Nicole and Keith, in a suit he borrowed from Connor Cruise (who will be allowed to buy his own clothing soon), had dinner at that quiet, out of the way, Hollyweird restaurant, Mr. Chow’s. While we did not get access to the inside of the restaurant, we did get to see the happy couple strolling briskly to their chauffeur driven car. I guess Keith was confused about his place as he was going to get in the front of the car but seeing Nicole's distress at the short walk to the car Keith had to get in next to her.

Saturday there was a report that our happy couple was at a CAA party happily talking to Tom and Katie Cruise. Unfortunately there are no pictures. Why? Because it didn't happen. Kidman was at another gathering alone across town. The word “alone”. Look at that word, and I will come back to it later.

Finally, Oscar night! Nicole, splendid in her lovely red gown, walks the red carpet alone (see there is that word again). Well, she had her preggo-rumored “more than friend” Naomi with her. But she did not have her husband with her. “Miss when I get married, I will have my husband to walk down the red carpet with Kidman” stammered about his whereabouts. "He is, um, we decided, well he, um, decided we that we, um, he won't walk down the carpet because well it just leads to too much scrutiny and speculation.”

She was talking about “Keith I never met a red carpet I didn't like Urban”? I smell a lie if ever there was one. Apparently Keith was backstage twirling his pinkie ring and getting used to the lifts in his shoes. His big appearance was soon upon him. For all of 45 minutes, after Kidman presented, Keith and Nicole sat in the audience for all to see. The happy couple, she looking like a drag version of Clifford the Big Red Dog in Gay Stars on Ice, and Keith looking like a reject from Guys and Dolls, talked, applauded, and looked sincere. After Naomi presented, and during Tom Cruise’s introduction of Sherry Lansing, the happy couple escaped to the Vanity Fair party.

And what a party! Everyone was there. Oprah pestered Keith into giving an interview, touting it being his first since rehab. I guess Oprah sleeps in and misses the Today Show. And Nicole met her peers like Meryl Streep and Mary J Blige. Then the Kidman’s greeted their very good friends the Murdoch's. You know them; they own all the papers in Oz. And they posed for a number of lovely pictures. At one point Keith tried to whisper something into Nicole's ear and she had to bend down to hear him, he hit her head instead. But to a good PR person that was a very lovely kiss, and the People magazine money shot. Keith earned his dinner. The couple retreated to the couches where last year they gazed at one another. This year Kidman looked sedated and Keith stuffed In and Out burgers in his mouth.


Did they look like a couple in love to you? Yeah, I know, me neither.

Then why the display? Because we have not seen them together since 2/5/07. Nothing, nada. Keith looking happy and relaxed and alone. Kidman refusing to fly to NYC where Keith was, to do a UN event because of her cracked ribs. Kidman later said they weren't cracked at all. Also there were sightings of Keith back in Nashville. Keith happy. Keith returning to LA on Oscar week and going out every evening alone. Yep, alone. Alone. Alone. Hey, you probably did read about a concert where Keith was spotted actually using the bathroom for its real purpose but he was alone. No wife, just a blog entry saying she was there. Now if they were there it would have been noted and photographed. It's Oscar week - the paps are out like the cigarettes Britney chain smokes. The reality is this couple is spending more and more time alone until it is noticed and then they become happy campers.

I can only show you this. It’s up to you to believe and more importantly ask why.

Interesting blog. The fact he wasn't on the red carpet spoke volumes to me. This marriage is hanging on by a thread and is about to be snipped ... the sooner the better.

The red carpet was and is all about Nicole.I knew he would not walk the red carpet and im glad he did not. Great choice in my book. Smart move Keith.She walked with who she wanted to walk with.

Keith seems to be finding his crown jewels again and not bending over every time the wench wants a photo op.

We miss you in Nashville, Keith!

well you're right about one thing..maybe two....it's all about HER..and she walked the carpet with who she wanted too..BUT SHE'S SO FLIPPIN IN LOVE WITH HER HUSBAND!!!yeah right...the waxy with needs to marry Naomi..she's NEVER looked at keith with so much affection..
and what is up with that face???!!!My God Joan Rivers looks good next to her..and Michael Jackson(despite his other issues) has nothing on her.."The Bride of Frankenstien" does exsist..and she married too the new TC wannabe!!!

Keith get your head out of your ass..she is os using you..and SHE IS SOOOO NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!!

Definitely this red carpet thing proves that the illusion of their so-called happy marriage is unraveling. I wonder how soon their separation will be announced?!! I have a feeling and hope it won't be long now.

I agree Nicole seems to love the limelight, but Keith not walking the red carpet...let's just say if you were just off the heals of a long rehab stint and have already had interviews about it, why hash through it again? My take is that he didn't want to be confronted with "off the cuff" questions from reporters. You remember, those today show, GMA interviews are totally scripted.

i say ..keep hoping hon..keith is proving to be a real wuss..so until the AUSSIE QUEEN declares it's over..he's going to keep licking her ass..he won't dump her..no matter how miserable he is..so until she is done destroying him..and can't get anymore PR out of it..he'll contininue to be there and look stupid..

Anonymous said...

I thought she looked ridiculous in that dress-Keith should have pulled the bow alot tighter...Too bad Keith still has many required appearances with her to end this farce once and for all.

Anonymous said...

Keith is so out of his element in Hollywood. That whole scene is chewing him up and spitting him out. He needs anonymity (sp?) and he cannot have that as long as he is with her. I watched a vid of him at the LA airport yesterday. They were asking him about Naomi's pregnancy. Chuck was telling them to get away. He can't go anywhere incognito now. I feel for him. But why isn't the wench giving him the jet? Or is he choosing to travel this way?

Anonymous said...

Keith never expected it to be like this. He thought he could handle the media and carry on ... life as usual. No one carries on with a normal life when with Kidman.

I think the happy happy couple are happy apart and after a respectable period of time (likely into the US tour - ? Oct / Nov 07) we'll hear an announcement of a separation...although the couple will continue to love and respect each other, their careers have not allowed them to spend enough time together yada yada yada.

And some time later, the divorce for "irreconcilable" differences will take place. I really can't see the outcome any other way.

Julie said...

I knew Keith wouldn't walk the red carpet with her either. I remember a time when Keith said he didn't like going to "everyone envelope opening". But I'm sure it wasn't HIS idea to stay backstage. And doesn't Nicole understand that NOT walking with Keith opens up srutinizing and speculation? What an airhead.

Anonymous said...

He's walked the red carpet several times at country music events...once he escorted Loretta Lynn...very cool. He was funny and seemed to enjoy himself immensely.

Anonymous said...

Kidman says it's to reduce "scrutiny" but in reality, all it does is fuel speculation about the marriage etc. And quite probably, that's part of why they didn't walk the red carpet together.

Why not try to get an extra mile of coverage out of the media? Things are calm right now...no baby bump (this week), no M&M eating incidents, no rib fracturing horrendous accidents. Why not get the media talking about the relationship? Mission accomplished.

Anonymous said...

WHy did he look so sad at the airport video? i mean down right sad. And that idiot taking the pictures is not as bright as his flash bulbs.Why in the hell would he want to comment on Naomi? he has nothing to do with her. That was stupid. I hope and pray he went home to Nashville, well we know he did , he is performing there tonight.

Anonymous said...

Looking at this from another perspective, is it possible she did not WANT him there? Because evrey question would be about him how is he doing after rehab? And we know she could not have THAT at HER event...because it would not be about Nicole Kidman...

Anonymous said...

i think that's very possible...heaven forbid that she's not the center of attention..

keith is better off in Nashville surrounded by people that actually care about him....i hope he stays there until he has to leave for OZ..

It is very telling that they did not walk the red carpet.

Thanks for your blogs. They speak the truth and it's about time someone throws it all out there.

Keith is far too good for Nicole. She will ultimatley ruin his career and life (rehab anyone?) He needs to get out while he can. Dump the biotch and get your career back Keith!

Anonymous said...

From all reports from his private show last night in Nashville...he's back. Hopefully that happy performer is a reflection of a happy man. I think it's obvious that he needs to get past his Hollywierd phase and get back to the music. The relationship is poison for him and I think he realizes it.

And why would I waste my time, knowing it would be ripped apart by the skeptics. Much like those bunnies rip every word a skeptic writes. Two sides of the fence and it's hard to tell which one is the right one.

Anonymous said...

That's why the only "right" place to be is "on the fence" - unfortunately that is the most painful one.

You can see the points of both sides but really better off not taking either side. To me, the truest form of not wearing rose colored glasses....

Prime example...why isn't the writer or writers here commenting on the recent whereabouts of Keith and Nicole? I guess because they had a field day shouting to the world she was off on vacation somewhere in the Caribbean with friends and not with Keith. But wait...somehow Keith was spotted down there too! What's a skeptic to do?

And now you're telling us that recent pictures of them in St. Bart's are doctored right? It's not really them, just a little cut and paste and voile'! I can only show you pictures of them happy and together, it's up to you to believe and more importantly, ask why do the skeptics continue to disbelieve they actually do love each other.

From the pictures I looked at through my regular glasses they looked like ANY other couple on vacation having fun. Please don't say it was a photo op, they were completely unaware of anyone taking pictures. We all know NK wouldn't dream of looking like that for the camera on purpose.

Of course it was a photo op, silly rabbit! Keith looked directly at the photog a few times. She didn't like the fact that he was getting good publicity back in Nashville and a story is coming out about their spat at the Oscars. So VOILA! We see pics of the "happy" couple on vacay. She's a famewhore, plain and simple.

But we still post it for all to see - b/c we don't care what the "bunnies" think.


"From the pictures I looked at through my regular glasses they looked like ANY other couple on vacation having fun."

Those wouldn't be rose colored glasses by any chance, would they?

"Please don't say it was a photo op, they were completely unaware of anyone taking pictures."

Pfffftttttt. Yeah sure they were.

Ok, it wasn't a photo op - it was actually a photo shoot for an upcoming tab spread "Happy Vacationing Power couples 2007."

We have all seen pics captured by paps of other famous couples on vacation - but did we see 132 of them in 2 days?

This is overkill.

And it is intentional.

"See? see? see?

We are happy! we are happy!

we are! we are! WE ARE!

Look, look look!!!!!!

See us walking on the beach?

See us hugging?

See us kissing?

See us cuddling?

See ME poll dancing?

LOOK LOOK LOOK LOOK!

WE ARE HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


"We all know NK wouldn't dream of looking like that for the camera on purpose."

That's what you think. She's an actress...she will make herself look anyway she wants to get you to believe what she wants you to believe.

My take on this...there was recent speculation that they were less than ecstatic together at the Oscars. They've been spending less and less time together. They are facing a heavy work schedule, much of which will keep them on different continents. So...how to convince the public that the fairytale is still going strong?

Why not stage a happy hot vacation and show more affection for each other than was evident even in their staged honeymoon? Now they can be apart for several months and anytime someone says they aren't happy happy, they can just pull out one of their hugging or kissing or pole dancing pictures to end the rumor! Mission accomplished!

Anonymous said...

This is overkill.

You got that right...obviously so many people cannot see that this was waaaay too many pics...there are more "interesting" people in the world than Keith and Nicole..especially now...bet there are some happy paps...well paid...he gets good press, she makes a point to "overkill"....he can't get better press than her...he is her bought and paid for lap dog....god forbid he stand up and say...hey, I HAD a career and I wanna take it back!!!

Anonymous said...

These 2 meant to be for real or fake. They just can't sell that reality at all. They don't look happy or in love. Some people aren't meant to be for whatever reason, real or fake. Real love, they are a disaster. Contract? They are fighting all the way thru it.

Put a end to it all so they can go on..No ones buying into it, so they are just wasting their time.

You skeptics are truly delusional. Just let them live their lives and be happy.

you don't go to rehab 4 months into a marriage if you are truly "happy". fact is, most of the time keith looks miserable. and you bunnies really think the man is happy? and NK is only happy when SHE is the main focus. i know somebody who was employed by NK and Tom, and she is gay, or at the very least, bi-sexual. if keith doesn't get out soon, he and his carrer are gonna be totally screwed.

The "girlfriends only" days of this little vacation was the fun part for her, this is ALL business folks.

"You skeptics are truly delusional. Just let them live their lives and be happy."

I would do that in a heart beat if ANY of the BS that has been written about them (other than what has been written here) was true.
And if you really believe they are happy and in love-I'm sorry for you. Evidently, you have never seen a real happy couple.
