Now gossip queen targets Nicole Kidman's kids

December 20, 2007 12:00am

NICOLE Kidman is under personal attack on two fronts today: first gossip bitch Perez Hilton mocked the Aussie star in his continuing vendetta by leaping on claims her children call Katie Holmes "mom" - and now the Vatican has urged movie-goers to avoid her new movie The Golden Compass.

In recent weeks Hilton has waged an increasingly nasty personal war against 40-year-old Kidman, with each item on his website - the most popular Hollywood gossip blog in the world - getting more and more bitchy.

His latest story is so vicious it has been headlined: "Nicole Kidman's Kids Really Hate Her!".

Today's item also questions whether Kidman even has a heart - and Hollywood insiders are baffled why the self-confessed gay queen has taken such an intense dislike to Kidman and why he is so actively taunting her about her relationship with her children.

At the same time it would appear he has given considerable space on his site to promote Holmes, the actress wife of Kidman's former husband Tom Cruise.

Insiders say Hilton is suggesting the two children of Kidman and Cruise prefer 29-year-old Holmes to the Aussie, who is now in Sydney spending Christmas with her family.

Among his recent string of web jibes on Kidman, Hilton:

- BAGGED out her new movie The Golden Compass as a "stinker" and "yet another bomb to Nicole's string of commercial disasters!"

- INSISTED the recent unveiling of her waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds gallery is more attractive than her. "The waxwork looks just like her. How sad is it when the wax version of you looks better than the real thing?!"

- MOCKED her looks again when discussing the Catholic Church's concerns over The Golden Compass. "But that will make Nicole Kidman sad. No frown lines!"

- FURTHER on her looks, Hilton called Kidman a "botox w****", ran a headline above her photograph saying "Does This Scare You Too?" then wrote: "We're trying really hard not to be so superficial - and failing miserably! Nicole Kidman was a hot mess at the world premiere of the Anti-God film The Golden Compass, Monday night in London. From the not-quite-right hair to the bad choice of lipstick and the face that doesn't move. Wrong all over! Keith Urban was at the premiere with his wife. At least he likes her."

- RAN a headline on a photograph of Kidman which simply said: "Lies". The item referred to the following quote from the actress: "I wear sunscreen and I don't smoke. I take care of myself. I'm proud to say that. To be honest, I am completely natural."

In the latest Hilton item published today, he refers to a new interview when he writes: "Katie Holmes reveals that Tom Cruise's two adopted children with Nicole Kidman, Connor and Isabella, call her mom.

"Says Holmes, 'His first two children are incredible, really smart and kind. They call me 'Mom.' So Tom understands the female bond and he loves it.'

"That must break Kidman's heart, if she has one.

"Just last month, in this interview, Nicole told the UK's GMTV that her kids DON'T call her mom.

"Said Kidman, 'My kids don't call me mommy, they don't even call me mom. They call me Nicole, which I hate and tell them off for it.

"Katie is more of a 'mom' to Connor and Isabella than Nicole is!!!

"That must hurt!"

Meanwhile, the Vatican today released a long editorial in which it condemns Nicole Kidman's latest film The Golden Compass, calling it "anti-Christmas."

Vatican paper L'Osservatore Romano said the movie advocates "a totally atheist ideology, the enemy of all religions, traditional and institutional, and of Christianity and Catholicism in particular".

The film tells the story of an orphan living in a parallel universe in which a dogmatic dictatorship - the Magisterium, which also refers to the teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church - threatens to dominate the world.

"The fact that the film earned only $29.13 million in box office on the first weekend is a consolation," L'Osservatore Romano said.

The flick led the US box office on its opening weekend earlier this month but fell short of expectations for such a high-budget production.

The film, packed with special effects, cost $174.77 million to make.

Criticism from some religious groups led to a watering down of religious elements in the film, to the dismay of secular organisations and movie fans.

I think the fact that kidman herself said it so matter of fact only a few weeks ago, and now holmes says it, also matter of factly, it doesnt seem to be too much of a contraversial issue with them. In fact it seems to kidman to be not much of a issue as it frees her to plot her next move, take a break from filming, or tour with urban...well ...unless suddenly there are photos that come out of her with the kids, then it would seem she feels a need to counter these two statements. And with the christmas break, it would be an opportune time to get the photos circulating... but, come to think of it, not even a christmas card..

Urban Myths said...

Ha, Maclen! What a brilliant idea! Maybe she should fly the kids to Oz for 12 hours or so (like Keith has to do sometimes) just to get a photo with them, and then she can rush that out as her Christmas photo card!!!

Sonora_Melody said...

Actually, you have just described Katie's desperate attempts to be accepted as "mom" by these 2 kids. First, she "designed" a Christmas card and included the names of the 2 kids, and made sure it's available to the press, even though Mr. Scientology Tom does not celebrate Christmas. Then she made sure her self-proclaimed "mom" statement is printed.

For the record, both Keith and Nicole have mentioned in several interviews that they will be spending Christmas in Sydney with their kids, Antonia and her kids, and both of their parents. These interviews happened long before this latest Katie statement. Sorry to disappoint you with your statement of "unless suddenly there are photos that come out of her with the kids, then it would seem she feels a need to counter these two statements".

Both Nicole and Keith do not need to use the kids for PR purposes, unlike TomKat who parade the kids before the cameras whenever they can. btw... we haven't seen photos of TomKat with Bella and Connor since their wedding a year ago. It looks like Katie is "losing control" of these 2 kids, and her latest ploy is nothing but an attempt to have the public think she has the kids' affection. How pathetic!

For the record... are you also also aware Sparky, that in a quote to the New York daily news, "Keith Urban, told us at New Line Cinema’s 40th anniversary party the other night that they’re rarin’ to start farming on the land they just bought in Tennessee. “We’re starting to build very soon,” revealed Urban. And in the Dec. Marie Claire, kidman is quoted as saying, "At Christmas time I have a weeks off,... after that, my husband and I have bought a farm in Tennessee and we'll lay low.." This is the only time I've seen christmas being mentioned until the very recent "Christmas with my sister's kids, my kids,my mum, my husband's family - and I mean his whole family" quote. There isnt any other christmas in Sydney quote before this week in fact, that I am aware of, but if there is, I'd like to know where, Sparky. And also with the contradiction in kidmans "bought ranch" and urbans "building very soon Ranch"... I wouldnt be setting as gospel what either of these two have to say "On the Record" there Sparky.

maclen said...

... oh yes, I just wanted to add, just for someoral_malady here... in the quick research to show just how consistant free kidman is, I found this funny blog entry at momlogic,com....

Nicole Kidman, mother of two, on her new marriage in Marie Claire. "My husband and I have bought a farm in Tennessee, and we'll lie low. I'll be setting up a new home. It's not too big—maybe we'll add to it as we go along— but right now it's enough for two people."

We don't claim to be math whizzes here, but last time we checked two plus your two children equals four, Nicole.
http://www.momlogic.com/2007/11/my_mother_is_a_centerfold_1.php

...so recall also, Someoral_Malady, urban is quoted as saying, "...on the land they just bought in Tennessee... “We’re starting to build very soon,...”

Sonora_Melody said...

Lol... you're running out of logical arguments so you're resorting to name-calling? How pathetic!

It's even more pathetic that you're quoting a blogger! Nicole and Keith NEVER grant interviews to bloggers, so whatever they write are simply junk or made-up stories.

The fact of the matter is both Keith and Nicole have both mentioned to interviewers from the legitimate press that their kids will be spending Christmas with them. This is way before this Katie Parade "interview" got leaked to the press.

There's no doubt in my mind that Katie is desperate to be accepted by her stepkids. She's totally insecure. Look at how many "makeovers" she has gone through in the last few months. She tried copying Victoria Beckham's hairstyle, but it didn't work for her. Now she's trying to copy the hairstyle of her 21-month old daughter! How laughable is that. It actually made her look like Bai Ling, a trashy Chinese-American D-List actress. Come to think of it, Katie would have remained a D-List actress if she were not married to Tom.

notachance said...

Fact of the matter is this - if those kids were with NK at all someone would be getting pictures of it. You can't tell me that those kids are spending time with her and NO ONE knows about it? Bullsh*t! The paps are not honorable at all, they would be snapping away. (Unless they are in a cave in Pakistan.) And I'd bet if those kids wanted anything to do with NK she would've had them at the Children's Hospital thing for sure. She has a pattern of parading her kids before the press, and the Children's Hospital is a must do.

So maclen, what's PH's vendetta with NK all about?

Tara said...

Point of fact- Scientologist do celebrate Christmas. They have an annual party in Los Angeles at the center. And no one is questioning Tom using the kids for his own purposes- thats why they were adopted. But these two children seem happy and quite content living with their father and if they want to call the mother of their sister mom - whats wrong with that?
Oh and the comments aren't from blogs they are from actual legitimate magazines.. Sonora you are with the adults here so bring your A game to the field if you want to comment.

CJ said...

Nic said in an interview weeks ago she and Keith were going to spend a "Quiet Christmas laying low in TN". Now it's a huge family affair in Oz. Nic hasn't been photographed with Keith's family since the wedding. Hummm, actually, neither has Keith. Only one story he took his parents to a coffee shop and picked his nephew up from school in a limo - no photos though. She trying to convince us they are one big happy family and everything in the charade of a marriage is just fine. Too bad those of us with 1/4 of a brain aren't going to buy it.

Sonora_Melody said...

How interesting that you're looking for snaps of Nicole with the kids, but conveniently forget to ask for snaps of TomKat with them!

TomKat had always taken EVERY opportunity to be photographed with Bella and Connor. But after their wedding, that came to a grinding halt. Why? Because they're never with them. If the kids are not visiting their mom in Australia, they are back in their Scientology camp.

NK haters can't have it both ways. If Nicole is photographed with the kids, she's immediately branded as being a publicity hound, even though those shots were made by paparazzi. If she shielded the kids and no photographs appear, she's immediately accused of not spending time with her kids.

Nicole and Keith are nowhere near the PR hounds you portray them to be. They pay for security to shield them from paparazzi as much as they can. That's why you hardly see photos of Keith nor the kids when they visit Nicole. Keith has been back in OZ now for several days, and so far there's 0 photo of him. Likewise, his last trip yielded hardly any photos.

Ciao! I have no desire to stay much longer in your land of hatred and ill-will.

Hey Sparky, since compared to you, I seem to have total recall, or do you have no memory of responding back on Oct 17, on the entry, "Savior or Warden. A refection on rehab". In responding to Shutupandsing...you wrote..

"Sonora_Melody said...
"ShutUp&StopWhining. He himself had said he's the happiest he has ever been."

...see, i recalled it, and just wanted to respond in kind to an annoying blowhard. And yes I'll take the word of a blogger over your shabby memory, as you have no crediblity with me, and no sources beyond your blabbering idiocy.

Sonora_Melody said...

Good idea sparky, as you have a juvenile grasp of the facts... stay in the land of bunnys and monkeys, it suits you.

Perez Hilton rags on pretty much everybody, doesnt he? . And I just think hes about as iritated by kidman as alot more people seem to be becoming. And I think the whole vendetta aspect is being played up by the Aussie Daily Telegraph, who it seems is trying to defend kidman from all critisism. Hilton has a pretty popular blog, and of course they also played up his last kidman blog... i think, the botox whore entry. But with critisism coming from even the Vatican on the Compass movie... its going to be very much harder defending her.

realitycheck said...

They were planning on having Christmas in Nashville. But with Australia's filming going over schedule, they will be in Oz. Simple as that.

maclen said...

Its certainly simple for someone like you or the ridiculous sonora_melody to mindlessly buy whatever they may say at any given time. And despite the fact that kidmans career is in shambles...and believe me this Australia film will be just as endlessly edited, cut and recut, mangled and mutilated...( for how can even the most brilliant editor in lala land salvage any dismal footage of a bland and bleached out kidman...) and put out to stink up the movie theaters just as Invasion and Compass did in the short few months they came out. Her hopeless filming schedule no doubt pollutes every aspect of her personal life, being that her films are her life, and how or where, or with who she may spend Xmas is merely an afterthought, and so therefore, by nature just a hilarious joke.

cricket said...

Sonora If not for Tom Cruise Kidman wouldn't have even made it onto the D-list. She's the queen of flops.The only reason she gets hired anymore is studios looking for a tax write off.So they hire her because they know if she's in it a movie is doomed.

banbotox said...

We all know that Tom uses the kids when it's to his advantage-no argument there. However, Nic does the same thing but hides behind her "motherhood" when actually her agenda is so obvious. When the talk ramps up regarding her lack of parenting skills suddenly she is photographed with the kids-anyone's kids.
NK was the one who first made the statement that her kids call her Nicole. Maybe it's because she's been interviewed repeatedly saying she wants her own family. Maybe her kids have heard her say that over and over again. How much time could she possibly be spending with them when she is working almost constantly? I'm not surprised they don't call her Mom-and seriously, are you surprised?

Since she is celebrating Christmas in Oz now, maybe she can just stay there...for good.

notachance said...

Even the Aussies are starting to doubt their Queen. Lately there have been articles popping up in their press that haven't been very nice to NK. She's wearing out her welcome in her own country because her double-speak is catching up with her.

maclen said...

Funny, just saw this article in the Sydney Morning
Herald....http://www.smh.com.au/news/people/kidman-falls-for-costar-11/2007/12/21/1198175341201.html
...titled, "Kidman falls for co-star, 11" It claims kidman has become very attached to 11 yr old Brandon Walters, whos in the Australia movie with her. Also at the end of the article it mentions that kidmans kids will not spend Xmas with her in OZ. Interesting, if true. Does this sound like a Team Kidman leak to the presses, in response to the whole holmes vs kidman mommy story? If the kids do in fact not spend xmas with her, I'd be willing to bet it is a leak, and is meant to somehow compensate for the kids being in fact not very close to her. If I was this kid actors parents, I'd be worried she might try to pull a Madonna... "give me your kid, and he'll...and you...will have anything youve ever wanted!"

notachance said...

Wasn't Isabella's birthday just this past week? Seem to recall that was Keith's first intro to the kid (supposedly), was at a birthday dinner at the hotel in Beverly Hills. So she didn't see her kid on her birthday?

bstnactrs said...

"TomKat had always taken EVERY opportunity to be photographed with Bella and Connor. But after their wedding, that came to a grinding halt. Why? Because they're never with them."

"If she shielded the kids and no photographs appear, she's immediately accused of not spending time with her kids."



This line of reasoning by the NK supporters always fascinates me.

So, let me get this straight...

If TomKat aren't seen with the kids, it's b/c they aren't actually with them.

BUT

If KUNK aren't seen with the kids, it's NOT b/c they aren't actually with them...it's b/c they are spending time with them privately so as not to expose them to paps & tabs.


Sounds like a double-standard to me.

Interesting how sonora & her crew can believe things about TomKat but those same things couldn't possibly be true of KUNK.

YOU can't have it both ways either sonora.

It's amazing the extent to which you make up your story when you don't even have the basic facts. Isabella's birthday is Dec. 22, not "this past week".

Its amazing how these bunnies not only have no grasp of the facts, or no cognitive or logic in their thought process... they obviously have no integrity. They are obviously so starved for attention, they will submit themselves to "hatred and ill-will" by continuing to return, despite claiming they will not return, all for the simple reason of showing off how ignorance they are.

Notachance, since your main point was not adressed, I'm sure as Sparky will attest to, if kidman actaully spends bella's birthday with her, you will never know because kidman doesnt allow that to be revealed, but at the same time, if you believe they did not spend the day together, because there are no photos, it must be true because you dont see pictures of Angelina jolie with her kid on their birthday....boy, thinking like Sparky really hurts my brain... your right bstbactrs, they make no sense whatsoever.

banbotox said...

maclen-Your brain hurts because logical thinkers cannot get their hands around the need to speak in tongues or should I say double speak.
We, logical independent thinkers, usually do what we say and say what we mean.

notachance said...

Wow sonora_melody - just because I wasn't EXACTLY sure of the date, I knew I was in the ballpark. But, thanks for clearing up the date issue - I'll mark my calendar now so I don't forget Isabella's birthday like mummy does.

cricket said...

sonora At least notachance knew Bella's birthday was in December.That's probably a lot more than NK knows about her.And in spite of Granny's yakking about her big family Christmas the kids are going to be celebrating with their Mom,Dad,and adorable little sister as usual. Poor Granny Kidman it looks like no one wants to see her anymore. Not the movie going public and not her kids.The only person who still wants to see her is her plastic surgeon.
