Addendum to our story that is a non-story...

I know so many of you are waiting for that picture to surface of Kidman drinking wine backstage at the Oscars. In my opinion, I don't think you will ever see it. There are often pictures from backstage at the Oscars. We have seen them in People or US but this one would be far too damaging to Ms. Kidman. I will venture an opinion that the picture has been purchased and will never see the light of day. That is a pretty strong statement, isn't it? I have no proof that it has been. But I do believe we would have seen this picture by now if someone hadn’t intervened. As for the other big news this week that poor Jamie has been denied damages by the big court: don't weep too hard. Somehow it’s always Jamie who is there when Nicole is out and about and Jamie who is there when those pesky rumors come up every few months that there is trouble between Keith and Nicole.

Jamie gets that photo that shows us all everything is fine and dandy. Of course, we all believe in photos, don't we? Just like we believe a publicist tells the truth. A couple of other notes to sum up our after Oscar coverage; New Line Cinema has died, the Kidman curse strikes again. Yes, Virginia, one big budget film that fails can take a studio down. Kidman was seen out and about in Los Angeles this week eating lightly and talking loudly about what a good baby-daddy Keith will be, and I agree with that. He will be when he finally has some children. It would be nice if Kidman would be seen with those other two children she had with her one true love. Even if she has seen them privately, how does that woman live with everyone talking about her not seeing them? Of course, like her marriage, there is probably more going on then we will ever know.

I suppose that in Nicole Kidman's world any publicity is good publicity.

lurve the new blog umyths!

yep that drinking pic of the COOTIE QUEEN has done been purchased and disposed of. and i do really feel sorry for her adopted kids, although they're probably better off without her in their lives. she's too self centered to be a good mother, anyway. keith, what have you done?

and if anybody cares to quote me and jump all over me, be my guest. i won't be responding to you.

Yes, New Line is no more, swallowed up by its struggling parent...(does that sound humorously familiar?..does kidman like grapes?...) And the idea that Warner bros. will continue the now debunked ex-studio heads shayes "Tarnished Compound" mistake lives in the childish non sensical world that believes kidman is still a top leading actress with any role at her beck and call, and can still command astronomical fees. But hollywood is still littered with money making and wheeler dealers who may stick her in an off kilter, half visualized, mind numbing piece of cinematical bilge... as kidman was so adeft at finding those sorry films to help offset her pilfering of the studios lackadasical and monetary hemoraging half witted execs or the socially stunted high school drolling directors, of the studios millions. And I would bet their are more than enough other actors, beyond the recent critisizing of kidman by colin farell, who are beginning to realize that not only is kidman a creative, but also a business liability in the industry. But they continue to burn their money at their own peril...

Too bad really-I'd love to hear how the goats would spin this to exonerate kidman.

Imahick said...

I find it amusing that the supporters of NK can never really come up with any actual evidence to support her...but instead lower themselves to criticize the bloggers and those who post. It's really quite entertaining.

How about telling us why she thinks it's OK for a mother to be emotionally detached from her children? To be more committed to her role in a movie than to her children?

No...I figured as much. It's much easier making derogatory comments about those who post here, than to find anything to defend such statements.

realitycheck said...

We dont know she's "emotionally detatched" from her children. Thats an assumption made by the skeptics. No one that posts here on either side knows what their relationship is truly like. Personally i feel how much Kidman sees her children is very much influenced by Tom and the Church of Scientology. But that doesnt mean that she loves them less than any other parents love their kids.

As for her quote about actor parents and children she has a valid point. Actors can be very emotionally invested in their job. Its a very different kind of way of life and i think actors are a unique kind of people. Is that a completely bad thing? No.

The skeptics keep demanding that we
disprove all these "facts" about Kidman. Guess what people, thats impossible when the "facts" are just opinions!!

-----------------------------------

The skeptics clearly aren't the only ones noticing that Nicole is never with her teenager children, mainstream media has questioned that as well. The skeptics also are not the only ones who've noted that Nicole gushes on and on about having a biological child as if her adoptive children will not be hurt by her statements.

Many of the things the skeptics write are indeed facts supported by dates, times and pictures.
Other things may be facts as well but aren't verifiable because someone's job might be at stake.

Berry Hill said...

Oh yeah; ditto on the theory that there was a picture but it and the card or memory stick have been purchased and destroyed. That's the way Nicole works and she's still got enough money to make things go away.

maclen said...

So, it looks like the kidman PR hack team are hard at work again. According to her little local neighborhood media leaking outlet...The Sydney Morning Herald.. there is already a bidding war for the baby pic that could blow everybody else out of the water, because she is such a sucessful US and international star! And they are also expected to go the oh so original route of giving the "multi millions" to charity. Who else but kidman, the "Kween of Kalamity".. the "kwintessential Kollusionist", could have come up with that? Of course the OZ newspaper expects that amount to up the recent amount for JLO's 6.5 million dollar twins... How could kidman outdo JLO's twins you may ask? Sure, its so easy really, just imagine if you will......The Kidman Kwintuplets!!
Seriously though, team kidman is so pathetically laughable.

"The skeptics clearly aren't the only ones noticing that Nicole is never with her teenager children, mainstream media has questioned that as well."

Let them question away. What does it matter? The world keeps spinning.



"The skeptics also are not the only ones who've noted that Nicole gushes on and on about having a biological child as if her adoptive children will not be hurt by her statements."
------------------
Is Nicole the first woman on this planet to want a biological child even though she's adopted two? What about Tom being extatic over having a kid with Katie? I guess he hurt his kids by having one biologically. If Kidman cared less about them why didnt she just have a baby without a husband a long time ago? Then she could be completely rid of them and focus on her "real child".



"Many of the things the skeptics write are indeed facts supported by dates, times and pictures.

Sure....

But she's so evil. But not evil enough i guess for someone to sacrifice their job.

I find it amusing that the 'second coming' to Angelina & Brad will udoubtedly upstage Kidman's 1st.

And no...there is nothing wrong with a mother who has adopted childern to want one of her own. However most mothers who have adopted childern, actually spend time with them everyday. So they tend to have the same feelings as any other sibling expecting the arrival of another. The big difference here is everyone knows she is not a significant part of Isabella and Connor's life anymore. It has the appearance that first try just did not work out so well for her, so lets try this again. Most people just don't treat kids like puppies...

Ok, I'm with you on a lot of things but Nicole isn't a singer. Yeah, she sang in Moulon Rouge but her voice in paltry in comparison to JLo's. And truthfully, I think JLo's movies have performed better....

I'm not criticizing, just simply curious to see what they look like as they seem so quick to pick apart Nicole's look, you skeptics you wait with bated breath for the next non-flattreing picture of Nicole Kidman to surface.

As for the absurd comment about skeptics having facts with dates, times, etc. I don't believe quoting tabloid magazines constitutes as fact - Really, if that's what my point has been all along. Skeptics here read an article out of a rag magazine and assume if it's written there it must be true - That's what I find so creepy!

No one knows the contractual agreement that Tom and Nicole have with the kids, so making assumptions as to abandoning your kids and not caring is simply your opinion - there's much more to the story than what we see in the media, as is with just about every tabloid headline out there.

You skeptics are so quick to take a headline and twist it to your way of thinking and state it as truth. I'd prefer to wait for the facts - and I don't consider tabloid fact as you all do.

doublewide said...

i remember when i thot People mag was gospel.....now i have learned it is just an extension of PR, whatever an artist wants OUT THERE instead of the truth, will appear in People mag or on People.com.

when KUNK got married, People mag printed some things that i saw the Priest that married them, refute on GMA with Diane Sawyer....i saw him refute these things with my own eyes..so it seems you can't trust People either. some so called rags are closer to the truth. JMO

wastedemotion said...

Someone mentioned we dont know the contract obligations Nicole has to Tom in regards to the kids I assume you meant from their divorce? As a mother I would do everything in my power to fight for those kids to have equal time with me, clearly that is not the case for one reaons or another. I personally can see no reason why a judge would not have granted equal time between Tom and Nicole unless one party just didnt fight for that. There is no reason why Connor and Isabella cant be with Nicole, no reason, except for the one that has been said time and time again here, she doesnt want them with her.
When was the last time you saw a picture of her with them? Honestly?

notachance said...

About the only magazine I would trust to print anything close to the truth would be Rolling Stone, because they can't be bought & paid for. That said I don't believe they've done an article on Keith & Nicole so we have no truths to take from.

Every other magazine on the newstands is either a gossip rag or PR vehicle. So, for either the skeptics or the NKU lovers to find any truth or fact or pictures supporting said facts is ludicrous IMO. It's all opinion, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors, with their lawyers (unless it's published on The Smoking Gun), etc.

This is why I've chosen to just accept what I see on the surface, it hasn't really impacted my life in any way. Like I said, he doesn't owe me anything. I have far too many other artists that enrich me and are *gasp* willing to actually communicate with me, the fan, and make me part of their artistic life. I will be there for Keith as long as he wants, but that is his decision. I can't force him to do anything - and for you skeptics to be continually whining about this you are only hurting yourselves. He still does a kick-ass show and no one can dispute that. Shit, even my husband - THE Keith hater - admitted it was a good show.

Off to listen to others....

Sonora_Melody said...

"Boozing backstage during the Oscarcast is a no-no. But if you're pregnant Nicole Kidman it's a yes-yes,'' Adams tut-tutted dripping with scorn and moral judgment. "She wanted white wine. She got it.''

The report resulted in an avalanche of criticism fired at the supposedly irresponsible Kidman. But anyone who knows how desperately she has been trying to have a baby knows what a load of utter nonsense the report was.

And by anyone, I mean the millions of the gossip-addicted people in the Western world and those assiduous readers of the weekly women's magazines, gossip websites and watchers of the daily entertainment shows.

Kidman, as those same people know, rarely drinks at the best of times. And as the gossip columns tell us, she's more conscious of alcohol than ever before having married a man with a drinking problem who fell off the wagon just four months after they tied the knot, sending him back for a much-publicised stint in rehab.

She didn't even toast her nuptials with a glass of the bubbly stuff two years ago. While a couple hundred guests polished off copious amounts of fine French bubbles and decent drops of red and white wine, the bride and groom abstained.

And now Kidman is several months pregnant. You'd hardly think that she would jeopardise her pregnancy when she is so close to realising her long-held dreams of having her own baby." ~By Sandra Lee, March 02, 200, The Daily Telegraph http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,23302786-5001030,00.html

Interestingly, Cindy Adams had stayed silent after her story is publicly denied and she being called an idiot. If I were in her shoes and knew my story to be true, I would stand up for the authenticity of my story and demand that Catherine Olim apologize. That did not happen. Cindy KNEW her story was made up!

notachance said...

And the inevitable diatribe from the skeptics of how NK has been drunk on numerous occassion since the wedding and rehab - of course, none of it will be, or can be, substantiated with any real proof from any reliable source.

I've seen it posted here many times about NK was drunk at this birthday bash, or this function, but it's only ever been innuendo - never proof.

Face it - Cindy Adams is a gossip hack on her way out looking for anything to keep HER name in the game.

Notachance, you have a healthy and balanced attitude about the whole Keith/Kidman circus; however, you would seem to belie that by posting on this blog.

Taking the time to search out the venue and communicate your opinion indicates you are as motivated to look beyond the surface as the others who post here--regardless of their point of view.

And while not trying to be argumentative, I feel compelled to point out that many who've seen Keith's show-- including his own people-- are bored with it.

However, if your husband's view was a reaction to his very first Keith Urban concert then of course it's understandable. A bored Keith just going through the motions is usually still better than the shows put on by other acts. That's the musical gift that Keith was blessed with.

Many--please note I'm saying many and not all-- longtime fans see Keith has lost the passion for his music that once sparked spontaneous moments of pure genius on stage and off. A Keith concert neophyte has never witnessed that so they have no comparison.

Skeptics connect the dots and see that the changes in Keith came with the arrival of Kidman in his life.

It's never a long wait.

Here's the deal from my perspective.

Nicole puts herself in the public venue as an icon of style, taste and glamour. She doesn't, as many other and younger Oscar winning actresses manage to do, keep to herself and live as simply and as privately as possible. Nicole places herself on display. By doing that she opens herself up to comment and criticism.

She has nurtured an aura about herself of aloofness and iciness. Since she's never done anything to change that aura one can only assume it's the persona she desires. Her consistent actions feed the label of narcissist fame whore she's been given.

Let's not forget that she married fame she didn't earn it. Tom pursued her but Nicole didn't discourage this married man from making advances. She knew who he was and what an alliance with him would do for her career. Her so-called Catholic morals and ethics, if they ever existed, were gone. (I won't defend Tom either. His actions were reprehensible as well) Nicole's teenage dating history is well-documented-- so, in my opinion, her scruples were already questionable. Morton bluntly spelled out that there was nothing or no one she wouldn't do to get what she wanted.

___________________________________

There was a study done and publicized finding the National Enquirer had a higher accuracy rate in its reporting than several other "reputable" publications. I'll grant you that study is now quite dated but it does give one pause.

In any case, the KUNK skeptics and Kidman worshippers are generally equal in believing whatever is written that supports their point of view and disputing what doesn't. That's human nature. Our paths part in how we view the plethora of photographs where awkward and hostile body language denies the PR handout describing them as a "happy couple."

In my opinion, it's blatantly obvious they are rarely happy when they are together. It comes back to the sage advice of believe what you see not what you hear.

By the way White Trash, what source would you deem qualified to give you facts?

As a Skeptic, I obviously would not consider anything coming from Wendy Day or Catherine Olim fact. They've lied before to protect or promote Nicole because that is their job. They are paid to say whatever Nicole tells them to say which furthers her agenda. That's not an attack on Day or Olim that's simply a statement of their job. Any PR flack says or issues statements of what their boss tells them to say or they don't have the star as a client any longer. That also holds true for Gary Borman and for Paul Freundlich and his associates. There is a woman who used to work for Paul a few years ago. She left his office to work elsewhere. She once told me what we know and what we say are almost always two vastly different things.

The reality is everyone involved in the sideshow has a point of view and they are motivated by money, job security or fame.

I agree White Trahsh. We don't know what Tom and Nicole's divorce decree says regarding custody of the Connor and Bella.

What we do know is Nicole is rarely seen with her existing children. We also know that most mothers would swear nothing and no one would keep them from their children.

What legal experts would assure you is no court would prohibit a fit mother from being with her children IF she wants them. So, from a legal explanation, Nicole either isn't fit to be with her kids or she doesn't want to be with them.

__________________________________
Realitycheck I was debating your point that the Skeptics are the only ones who question Nicole's attentiveness to her existing children. I was refuting that point by stating the mainstream media questions her devotion as well. It seems you have proven the Skeptics belief that if a "worshippers' point is shown not to be valid then the entire point is discounted.

-----------------------------------

Of course Nicole is not the only woman on the planet to want a biological child. However, she is in the minority of mothers who don't consider their existing children's feelings when making statements that are hurtful to tender teenage psyches.....especially since the comments originate from a mother who apparently does not make choices that allow her to see Bella and Connor.


You ask why Nicole didn't just have a baby without a husband a long time ago. My answer to that is simple but will probably enrage you. I don't believe Nicole can have a baby. Consequently, I believe the baby bump doesn't exist. I believe she is capable of relentlessly playing the role of expectant mother in the same way Bree did on Desperate Housewives.

Curious Reality Check, one could take my earlier statement as a nod to Nicole's power and money despite her receding career status.

don't believe the lies said...

What's with all the Jlo bashing? You non-skeptics looking for another scapegoat for Nicole? People respect JlO a lot more than they do Nicole, IMO. She makes good movies,she can sing, she's a smart business woman and I think she'll make a wonderful mother and not forget about her children.

I agree about the pictures of her drinking and them being disposed of. Money can just about buy anything in her world...I mean look at her bought and paid for husband. Sad.

I also agree that if Nicole REALLY wanted to be a mom to her adopted kids she could have been. Instead it seems like they're just kids she sees every now and again. Ya know when she's feeling low and needs a little pr pick me up. Sad.

Also you non-skeptics seem to come down pretty hard on us for not having proof of what we say here. Well where's you proof to say that we're wrong? Ya see it works both ways. It's just that your to quick to jump on our asses and bash us. Like I said before quit coming here to state your non-existent case for Nicole. It just doesn't work here. Or keep coming here and deal with the backlash.

It's the way Nicole's built. Unless she wears Spanx or some kind of girdle-- she has a naturally protruding stomach.

NICOLE SMOKING AT CANNES

(SEE FOR YOURSELF:)

http://s246.photobucket.com/albums/gg111/berryhill26/?action=view¤t=SmokingKidmanCannes.jpg


"Anti-tobacco groups were fuming with Oscar-winning Australian actress Nicole Kidman Wednesday after she publicly lit up during a press conference at the Cannes film festival. Kidman shared a cigarette with her Dogville co-star Stellan Skarsgaard while promoting her new movie at the European festival", Agence France Presse, May 21, '03

At a media briefing while promoting her new film Dogville, Kidman scammed a cigarette off her co-star Stellan Skarsgard, only to be admonished by director Lars von Trier in front of the world's press. 'Oh, Nicole, don't do that - you promised,' von Trier said. Kidman coolly kept puffing ... Wendy Day, Kidman's Australian publicist, said she hadn't spoken to the actress since the incident and referred inquiries of Kidman's overseas activities to her U.S. representatives", Associated Press, May 21, '03

The world saw different images of Nicole Kidman at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday when she smoked her way through an international press conference", The Advertiser (Australia), May 22, '03


"Kidman has been slammed by the anti-smoking league back home, after being spotted smoking during the Cannes Film Festival. The Oscar-winning actress came under fire after she was caught on TV cadging a cigarette off co-star Stellan Skarsgard at a press conference for her new movie, Dogville - and then carried on smoking even after her director Lars Von Trier begged her to stop", Reuters, May 22, '03

"Nicole Kidman this week joined an elite corps of Australian stars who have been singled out for their contribution to the international tobacco industry", "there is a long dossier on Kidman on a website called smokingsides.com", Sydney Morning Herald, May 24, '03


"I would hope that, with this latest award, she's conscious of how her smoking does affect young people. She's in a very unique position now to contribute to improving the health of women, not only Australian women but worldwide.", "Nicole quite clearly and publicly flaunted her smoking when it was quite unnecessary at those press conferences.", "At the very least, you'd have to say that it'd be much more responsible for her to not smoke in public, if not to make a decision to quit.", website, c. May '03

AND MY FAVORITE:

"'I'm always getting in trouble for saying or doing something', she laughs with exasperation. 'I smoked a cigarette at Cannes and suddenly people were expecting me to make some public apology. I'm like 'Hold on!'", Sydney Daily Telegraph (Australia), Jan. 1, '04

Accolades come easy to Australian-born actress Nicole Kidman, but the thought that she is a chain smoker isn't going down well with the anti-tobacco lobby. Having been nominated as the NSW Australian of the Year, anti-tobacco lobbyists think she should set an example to the younger generation, especially women, and quit smoking. 'Her public smoking does reinforce the wrong message, that smoking and glamour and success go together for young women. I would hope that, with this latest award, she's conscious of how her smoking does affect young people,' News. Com quoted Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) Australia chief executive Ann Jones as saying. 'She's in a very unique position now to contribute to improving the health of women, not only Australian women but worldwide. There's a great opportunity for Nicole to improve the health of Australian women by actually not smoking in such a public way,' she added", WebIndia, Dec. 3, '04

From Starpulse/Last year

Nicole Kidman refuses to give up her smoking habit, insisting 'you have to enjoy life a little.' The actress says she has no plans to give up the unhealthy habit for good. She tells Britain's Closer magazine, 'Yes, I smoke cigarettes. It's an addiction and I'd say anybody to who was going to start: 'Don't!' But you have to enjoy life a little, don't you?''

SMOKING WITH EWAN MCGREGOR:

"Ewan McGregor, who shared a cigarette with Nicole Kidman during the pre-screening press conference", World Entertainment News Network, May 9, '01

"Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor couldn't keep their hands off each other before the premiere of their film Moulin Rouge at Cannes. ... Ewan and Nicole held hands, giggled, whispered to each other and shared a cigarette before the film was shown", World Entertainment News Network, May 9, '01

"actress Nicole Kidman said on Wednesday that she would like to perform in a Broadway musical. .. 'You can't smoke, for example,' she said after a puff on a cigarette. 'A musical is physically much, much harder than a straight play'", Deutsche Press-Agentur (Germany), May 9, '01

"As she spoke she shared a cigarette with Ewan", The Mirror (UK), May 10, '01

"She broke a rib and injured her knee during the physically demanding song-and-dance numbers of Moulin Rouge, and she even had to stop smoking, although she recovered enough to light up at the press conference.

"Nicole Kidman apparently had a premonition that Russell Crowe would take the Golden Globes best actor award. The star, already armed with her own award for best actress in a musical or comedy, was backstage talking to reporters when word of Crowe's win reached her. 'I told him,' she gushed.

Thank you.

How do you know she's stopped? You can't prove that statement any more than I can provide you verifiable evidence she hasn't. I can tell you I know people who've been in the room or area with her when she lights up but I don't have time-stamped video to prove it to you.

Perhaps the International thrashing Nicole got for smoking at Cannes sunk in. Nicole is very aware of her image and she was beat up for days for her filthy habit. There are pages and pages and pages of web alerts for stories on that one event. That cigarette was an international scandal. Her image was a dirty as a used ashtray.

Now Nicole's handlers are quite careful to make sure her smoking is done privately... although I suspect Nicole is savvy enough to exert self-control over her addiction in order to preserve her reputation and image.

Catherine Heigl and Charlize Theron are getting blasted for their smoking addiction and they are much younger and have a better box office track record. They can probably weather the storm. At this point in Nicole's life she's just weathered.

As for Keith visiting his mum, i dont know if thats true or not. But Keith could have visited without her being on her death bead. There is varying levels of being ill.

For the record that explanation was floated in reaction to anger that Keith did not attend the Grammy's.

The general perception is Keith respects the Grammy organization and has never snubbed them before.

No one would question his priorities if he went to his mother's side IF she were ill.

But no one would believe Marienne, who has always been, in regards to the music, Keith's #1 supporter, would want him to blow off such a prestigious award (even if it wasn't televised)in order to hand her a new role of toilet paper or bring her a glass of flat 7-up.

Such a big brew-ha-ha. The pictures (actually cell phone video) from the Oscar's aren't that telling. Yes, she's drinking. What's inside? Clear liquid. Could be white wine. Or water. Or Sprite/7-Up or the diet versions. Or vodka. Or anything else clear. If the PR hacks had half a brain they could easily explain it away and the story would have dies by now. IE: That's the only glass they could find but it was filled with water. Even better - it was filled with Sprite to settle Nic's nausea from the pregnancy.

Once upon a time I posted on Teena's "Mates" board. You get used to the "I'm painted into a corner" desperate and worthless replies.

It can be productive to contemplate the points the worshippers make-- when they make them. Like any debater I want to explore all the sides of the argument or issue. We all have a wealth of knowledge and experience we could contribute but much of it is lost in personal attacks and defamatory comments.

However, what I can't fathom is why worshippers come to a Skeptic's sight and then get angry when a good majority of the posters are skeptics and consequently take the viewpoint in their/our writings?

I understand the desire to know what's being said about someone you care about and then make the
choice to defend them. What I don't understand is the self-righteous attitude the permeates those posts?

Again, I point out, a diversity of posts is allowed here. It's a Sketpics sight but worhsippers are allowed to post their strong opinions which are contrary to the founders of the sight. The same cannot be said about NKU.

Berry Hill said...

I dug out the column Lainey wrote about Nicole's "natural look" and what she's heard about Kidman's smoking which explains why there are no pictures of her smoking in public lately:


The Natural Granny Freeze

Does this look like a face not poked by needles, not pulled by strings, not scrubbed by a surgeon? Apparently Nicole Kidman expects you to believe that yes, indeed, what you see is what was always meant to be. In a new interview with Marie Claire, Nicole says she is “natural”:

"To be honest, I am completely natural. I have nothing in my face or anything. I wear sunscreen, and I don't smoke. I take care of myself. And I'm very proud to say that."

What’s more ridiculous? Victoria Beckham insisting her concrete tits are real or Nicole Kidman claiming she’s never had Botox?

As for the smoking part – hmmm…funny that. I just dug up this photo of her lighting up during a press conference in Cannes a few years ago. Guess that must mean she’s quit. Only rumour has it, she actually IS like Posh in that regard: a closet smoker, behind closed doors, just like Jackie O.

And if that’s the case – what IS real about Nicole Kidman?

"If the PR hacks had half a brain they could easily explain it away and the story would have dies by now."

Whether or not it can or will be "proven" to be a fact, or whether or not a "smoking gun" will in fact ever surface is competely besides the point. Whether it may be a 50-50 split ...or 40-60... etc. on how it is perceived, the damage is done. I agree with CJ's point, this was ineptly made into a bigger story than need be, and the spot light was pinpointed by her team to continue the question of whether she drinks while claiming to be pregnant. Not very sensible Publicity 101. Although the popular catchphrase in fantasyland is even negative press is preferable to no press, that is not the case for kidman. The anti american bent to Dogville didnt help it's visabillity... the pedophile element to Birth certainly stained the coverage of that film with a touch of repulsion. Now this drinking story is to help with the visability of her next film, Australia? As I've written before, kidman doesnt do provocative very well at all, she does sensationalism very unsuccessfully.

banbotox said...

maclen-the only things kidman does well are desperate and pathetic.

Imahick said...

I agree with CJ. If she wasn't drinking wine and was just using a wine glass, why not just say so and be done with it?

I think Ms Olim had no option but to go this route, because NK WAS drinking wine. I think that she took the only route she had available to her...try to get a very strong indignant message out there via a gossip site, because she wasn't going to get any formal or official retraction.

And I think there's been some sort of communication with the NYP...from NK's peeps...please let us have this indignant denial on PEREZ because otherwise our client is going to be ridiculed from now til the cows come home. If you do, we'll give you something down the road that no one else will get.

And the NYP and Cindy backed off and haven't been heard from again, while the denial has been well distributed through PEREZ's site.

But I don't think for a minute it means NK didn't drink wine (or smoke, which wasn't part of Cindy's item). I think she continues to puff away and I think she continues to drink. After all, she IS Nicole Kidman...and surely the rules that other people have to follow don't apply to her?

don't believe the lies said...

Drinking and smoking wouldn't suprise me. She's been out doing a lot of things that a "pregnant" woman who's had many miscarriages shouldn't be doing from the beginning. Which still makes me think that she's NOT pregnant.

I mean would Keith let his "pregnant" wife do these things IF she REALLY were? Keith's a bought and paid for man but I'd still like to think that maybe he'd try to put a stop to her doing something so severe as this.

Simon Cowell is a jerk but he's a smart jerk who gets it!

In an interview with Glamour magazine, Cowell, 48, said Dannii Minogue would be better in bed than Amanda Holden and that Nicole Kidman had no sex appeal.

He said of Hollywood stars: "The current crop of actresses - Nicole Kidman and Kate Bosworth etc - they're just nothing. There's nothing to fancy or fantasise about there. I like old-school glamour - Raquel Welch and Brigitte Bardot - voluptuous and naughty. Mistresses."

________________________________

Thank you DBTL-- I also do NOT think Kidman is pregnant. It suited the plot line she designed and after his rehab, tweaked, for her role with Keith. She also needed something positive to hide behind when all her latest movies, by industry standards, tanked. How humiliating to realize the film casting you as the marquis name was the death knell for an entire movie studio. But I'm sure Nicole points her bony, chapped, hideously red finger with bitten nails at everyone but herself.

I don't think Keith has any influence over his employer. She is the "alpha" in their partnership. Which is part of why Keith carefully seeks companionship elsewhere. Nicole strips him of his manhood and his very nature. Keith is used to being in control. He may never find his muse again but he looks for his masculinity when he's not "on call" to escort his boss.

As for the bunines and the worshippers, I welcome the intelligent debate. I'm confident in where I stand and what I have to support my view.

"maclen-the only things kidman does well are desperate and pathetic."

Well you know banbotox, the one sure thing that will effect celebs credibility is failure. When their flying high, everything they touch is golden. kidman had her one golden year... and was basically given an honorary Oscar for a failed marriage. Since that time, her credibility has been chipped away with every uninteresting and lackluster film. So now every little flaw is magnified, and disengenuous statements are not overlooked any longer, and not just by blogs like this one... but the industry pundits who at one point were celebrating every move and film she made in her golden year. And certainly last year was her worst year so far... I dont see it getting any better in the near future.

Kerry Katona has one brain cell between her ears. She's not even close to NK's height or body type.

"... and was basically given an honorary Oscar for a failed marriage. "

Ah, so that explains the following:

Julia Roberts got her "honorary Oscar" in 2001 after her divorce from Lyle Lovett and a broken engagement with Kiefer Sutherland.

Halle Berry got her "honorary Oscar" in 2002 after a failed marriage with David Justice, and another marriage on the rocks with Eric Benet.

Reese Witherspoon got her "honorary Oscar" in 2006 while her marriage was on the rocks and ended in divorce a few months later.

don't believe the lies said...

Yes but that doesn't explain why Julia, Reese and Halle continue to still make good movies that people see. While Nicole hasn't done anything worthwhile in years!

Face it Nicole is old news. People don't really care about her career anymore. Yeah they'll treat her with respect and let her sit front row at awards show but that's only because of being a past winner. She's a hasbeen now.

realitycheck said...

Julia...Charlie Wilson's War. She was declared the weakest actor in that one. Horribly miscast with a ridiculous Washington wig. Before that 2 animated movies that didnt do anythng for her career.

Reese...Walk the Line was great but did anyone see Rendition or Penelope?

Halle...Things We Lost in the Fire, Perfect Stranger...more movies no one saw. And lets not forget Catwoman!

woriedmonkey said...

OK.. I agree NK is full of shit up to her eyeballs and beyond BUT there's no way in hell Keith Urban would perpetuate a fake pregnancy.

Come on people; I don't doubt Plastincina would fake it if she was single and trying to do it as a single MOM ( think of what she could milk out of that) but give the guy credit for some integrity, no matter how far you feel he's fallen.

Trying to fool the public in this way would be a gross fraud and deception and way too risky; what if the fake bump slipped, what if one disgruntled friend or family member talked. Think of the ridicule and humiliation: remember NK has to look good at all times ( even though ironically, she has quite the opposite effect).

Besides, NK isn't THATgood of an actress and KU's credibility would be in tatters. PLUS.... this is a guy who's deep into the recovery program, the basic tenet of which is rigorous moral honesty with oneself and others. To say that she if faking is to say that he is complicit and totally sullies HIS moral character. She may be the alpha but this guy is not stupid and is not a eunuch.

I for one, wish she wasn't pregnant because as I said before, I wouldn't wish a narcissistic manipulative Mother on anyone.

Anyone agree ?

And when Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman wakes up this morning to find these rare UNSANCTIONED images taken by Flynet of her released worldwide depicting an alarmingly receding hairline and a bump that never seems to grow, suffice to say the wheels will be put in motion for a set of more flattering photos. Perhaps a few of her rubbing a bigger belly, complete with full maquillage, and a doting husband kissing her forehead. Give it less than a week. Trust.

For now, feast your eyes if you dare on the Freeze coming out of what looks like a rather intense workout yesterday. My favourite rumour right now?

Many people in Hollywood are buzzing that there’s a surrogate. That she’s not really pregnant but that she will “deliver” in 6 months or so by a woman hired to carry her baby while Freeze wears a prosthetic.

Do you love it, or do you LOVE it?

But Gran would never, ever, ever lie…would she? Gran would never, ever marry a gay. Or deny freezing her face. Because Gran always, always tells the truth, right?

Of course she does. Gran is totally, totally pregnant.

Hmm... the pictures indicate Kidman is still in Los Angeles.

Wonder if she'll be on the phone threatening Tom to give her one of the kids for an hour or two.

Perhaps those pictures will be Kidman and Bella coming out of a baby store.

That receding hairline is downright scary. We've seen it before but it's gotten worse!

Immediately after I posted I saw these pix of Granny Freeze coming out on intense workout.... and I have to admit that shit... maybe she is faking it.

What women in her right mind with her history would risk an intense workout (raising her core body temp, leg lifts, whatever) during a 'geriatric' pregnancy.
IS she so arrogant to think that she still can't miscarry.... up to and including at 5 months, even later.
She either really is the Queen of Sheba and no one can get through to her ( a la Britney) or they have arranged a surrogate pregnancy and perhaps Keith is going aong with it since there will- they hope- really be a baby to show for it and they've somehow convinced themselves that they are not really lyin

But why can't she be honest in that case like Angela Bassett or James Taylor and wife or The Quaids. There's no shame in wanting a child.

BY THE WAY,

it is almost a universal fact that during pregnancy a woman's hair gets thicker and more lucscious and less of it falls out because of the Human Growth hormones being produced from the fetus.

So not happening

White Trash said...

I am by no means defending Ms. Kidman, but my hair fell out while I was pregnant, it was not lucious. My hair dresser told me it was common because the proteins were going to the baby not the Mom.
But whatever I haven't even noticed anything different with Nicole.

woriedmonkey said...

Most women who experience hair loss have it occur during the postpartum period and often hair falls out at at alarming rate because the cycle for each follicle tries to reorganize. Something about the hormones being produced by the fetus interrupt the cycle of the hair as well as nourishing it and they tend to stay on the head longer. Not saying it didn't happen to you Whitetrash but it is more unusual.

Anyway, back to regular scheduled programming,
Could just be that NK is more uptight than she usually is about becoming large. The thinning hair is so symptomatic of past or present anorexic behaviour. People who probably care more about her if she was upfront about herself. But no, too uptight.

notachance said...

Well, those pictures certainly don't do her justice. She looks horrid to say the least.

It's been years since I was pregnant - what do doctors recommend for working out these days? Keep up at the same pace as before? Scale back? She doesn't look like she's gained an ounce. Funny, thought she wanted those Marilyn Monroe curves - she won't get them by working out excessively and eating next to nothing.

banbotox said...

That's true notachance-no curves at all and this seems to be rather unhealthy for a baby-no weight gain and strenuous workouts. Don't think those would be ok'd by any OB.
Gotta wonder about the rumor that Lainey mentioned...

notachance said...

I sincerely hope it's not true about a secret surrogate. I wouldn't care if that's the way they had to go and they were open about it, but to fake being pregnant???

Makes be think of that "Dirt" episode from the first season where the looney photog guy got the pic of the hot young star removing the baby belly....

So, getting back to the always over-looked and unfortunately ignored...(for him)... urban. Seems he's back on underwoods tour, seemingly sans kidman... who it seems from the previous comments here, is on some kind of bizarre, subconcious, self destructive and uncontrolable bent to either out herself of not expecting as soon as many were led to believe... or is simply trying to lower the expectations of her previously stated non procedural laden face... but again, i digress... a check over at Billboard.com, after last weeks slight bump of CD sales for both underwood and urban... underwood's previous cd release having impressively jumped 4 spots to rejoin her current cd release in the top 10 of country albums, has fallen 1 spot, meanwhile urban GHits cd, having jumped only 2 spots, barely missing the top 10, was at #11, has this week also fallen one spot to #12. The sales status of G-hits is still at Gold...500 k sold. Doesnt seem very impressive chart action for a not even half way finished tour...but I'm so sure if kidman was actually there touring with urban, as once stated, his numbers would be oh so impressive, I'm sure. One appearence on an awards show is in no way a balance to daily and constant indications of disengenous and contradictory PR missteps.

CJ said...

woriedmonkey, just a thought: if Nic told KU and the family that she is preg, even if she is lying to everyone, Keith, his family, and her family would go along as if she is preg since she is the only one who knows it's not true. Eventually the truth will come out, it always does, but it can be covered up for awhile without even hubby suspecting.

CJ said...

maclen, I don't know how much attending the Oscar's would help KU's record sales. However, if he had performed at the Grammy's sales of one, if not both albums, would have jumped. Attending might have helped as well but we'll never know for sure.

Perspone said...

Worriedmonkey, there are actually several scenarios for NK's reported pregnancy. On one had, I could see NK faking the pregnancy and because KU really isn't spending as much time with her as they are trying to make it appear, he doesn't know she's faking, he only knows what she is telling him. On the other hand, KU is in this so deep that he had no other choice but to go along with it and is using this to possibly end this mess. The third sceniario is that NK is pregnant and is just not behaving responsibly given her history of miscarriages. And the final scenario is that KU has become NK's famewhore mini-me who will go along with anything to get his name into the spotlight. With regard to the last scenario if, that is the truth of the matter, it is sad and disappointing that someone with his talent would take that route.

That being said, we will probably never know the truth.

NotBuyingItInNashville said...

14 weeks on the charts and he doesn't have a single in the top 25.

I'm sure he'll do well playing at the Basement in a few years. There's always that to fall back on.

Yeah, CJ, that was my point also... the one Oscar appearance doesnt help urban, after the Grammy no show... and in fact for kidman it was a total failure. The question of her drinking.. being compared and outdone by other obviously and naturally looking expecting celebs. And now these photos this morning...that is the ultimate, in my opinion, of very shoddy PR and an almost resigned attitude to reality. But its not the first weve seen of this behaviour lately, as with the spears and lohan trainwrecks...they just cant help themselfs. Kidman seems to have some fixation with working out right now, and has no regard to how she looks. For you know, she does not have to visit a public gym... but for some reason, she needs to be seen. Strange.

methinks-shes-delusional said...

Anybody checked out people.com lately? I haven't believed the pregnancy rumors since they came out ... this seems to just confirm the "RUMORS".

Sonora_Melody said...

The skeptics with their endless speculation and made-up stories about the size of Nicole's baby bump should look at other celebs and the size of their bumps at the same relative stage of their pregnancies. No surprise for me that Nicole is about the same size.
