You haven't figured out the Queen of Manipulation yet?

Nicole Kidman is a public figure. Keith Urban is a public figure. How truly low it is that Kidman is using another excuse as to why they were not at the Grammy’s. Point - at the very time period that the Grammy’s were being given out Kidman and Keith were at a photo shoot for HER epic. There is video evidence of this. Point - Keith's spokespeople refuse to answer why he didn't attend the Grammy’s. Point - a little tidbit about the location of the down under wonder couple was leaked to the press when Keith was touring out of the country. Wonder why, don't you? This smells of Kidman and her PR hacks. Keith was getting grief for not going to the Grammy’s, but Kidman was getting more for putting her career above his. For you see she is over in Oz because she is still working on the epic doing looping and photo shoots. Yes, Kidman is still working during the pregnancy and not supporting her husband in accompanying him to the most important award that his industry can give. More important to a musician than an Oscar, the Grammy is something a performer should not take lightly. But there was Keith sitting alone, getting in the way of the shoot. What a missed opportunity for him. His statement shows how much value he placed on the award, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see why he was in Oz. Nicole Kidman is so self involved that she can't accept that her husband has his own success.

As she and the love of her life were in the same business, Kidman knows nothing about the industry Keith is in. Keith, not being a father or husband before, well what could he do? He even mentioned in his KU Tube video that playing Madison Square Garden was one of the greatest events of his life; he quickly added that he wished his wife had been there. That's very sad isn't it?

What is sadder, though, is that Kidman’s peeps make another excuse. Nicole, just admit that you had to have Keith at your work site instead of having him accept the highest honor in his field. Can you be more manipulative?

How about looking at it this way. Kidman used the media AGAIN. I know - it happens all the time - what was I thinking?

Anyway, this was suppose to be a remote secret shoot, right? Out in the middle of absolutely nowhere, right? Nobody to call into the TV station and say, "Hey I just saw Nicole Kidman at a photo shoot." So remote that a TV station has to send a helicopter. Who told them?

How does Urban look to the general public by attending this photo shoot versus the Grammys? This was all part of her plan. She wanted the World to see that her husband is so whipped and in love with her that he gave up going to the Grammys to sit and watch her at a dusty photo shoot. She wanted this to be the equivalent of Tom jumping on the couch. Instead, he looks like a very weak person. This IS extreme manipulation!

maclen said...

Yeah, I found that typically predictable that kidman's pr shill would put out the "excuse." And it seems that kidman, or more likely, her people sense a real and growing attitiude that urban is just another one of the pawns to be used for her career and personal advancement. What other reason would they have to release an excuse? There must be a real attitude and perception of it even in their little bubble of pretend and make beleive world.. or there just reading blogs like this one that point it out regularly.

notachance said...

Funny, but I offered up a perfectly reasonable explanation for his absence in a previous blog and no one cared to comment...

Maybe Keith chose to stay away on purpose - because he knows his public persona would overshadow the other nominees. He clearly has great respect for Brad Paisley, and maybe he thought it best to just stay home this time and let the others have their time to be in the spotlight.

Not a one of you skeptics ever wants to give Keith any credit at all.

doublewide said...

this isn't true for all skeptics. i am glad to give keith credit when i feel he has earned it. and i don't mean a little touring with CU.

what about doing some concerts for charity? what about st. judes? could be not be doing something like this instead of sitting at her stupid photo shoot?

i just don't think your theory is plausible, notachance, on why he may have missed the grammys.

word is, he's gonna do CMA FEST this june. i hope he does, and does some reconnecting with the fans and with nashville. i would love to give him credit for this.

isitoveryet said...

notachance - why should Keith do this when Kidman isn't doing this with the Oscars? Her baby bump will take away attention from the Oscar nominees!

not anon said...

Why weren't they in Germany at the Charity event she co-chaired? She sent a tape saying she couldn't make it because she was pregnant. Funny how she's not too fragile to stand in that hot sun in a heavy costume and jog in the park. The reality - she couldn't make it because they're frantically trying to get all the promo shots for the Epic done before her face falls and her body balloons up beyond the repair of the best Photoshop artists.

White Trash said...

or here's an idea....

Maybe, just maybe he wanted to be with his wife!

banbotox said...

Yep UM, no doubt about it, manipulation. It would have been really nice if kidman could have put her career aside for a moment for Keith. I don't believe that will ever happen-she just can't do it.

Well maybe, just maybe she should have wanted to be with him! Photoshoots can be reschedule.

"Why weren't they in Germany at the Charity event she co-chaired...?"

Thats because her charitable causes take an even farther back seat than urban does. Her next charity promotion wont come until her next movie comes out. Australia is scheduled to come out in the US on Nov ... no doubt in Dec. in the land of Australia, so she can do the "kids from the hospital go to the movies bit! ... its so very convienent. Now the the whole UN ambassadorship is completely neglected, because it would be too much work, take too much time from what is too important to her. She got out of it what she needed, the official press conference announcing it made it to the presses, the photo op flashed across the net...But the actual leg work is just too demanding to be bothered with, you know, bringing the "spotlight" to the plight of such far unfortunate as she... so they'll make due with just a video conference call... then she can just so easily bring in the reporters to shill her movie, all without batting a eyelash , or freshen up her make up, or actually getting her ass to those unfortunate woman and children from those unfortanate lands she claims she's so concerned with and she would visit!

I am not a skeptic, and I think that's not even close to reasonable. Stay home to give other people a chance to be in the spotlight? That's not how awards shows work. He should have been there, to let us have our moment of pride as his fans. People stood by him during the 'scandals' for lack of a better word. Then he should show up for something as big as the Grammys.

Following your logic, no one but first timers should show up. That would be fair.

skepticRN said...

" Photoshoots can be reschedule." (inittowin)

Well I will agree that since she is pregnant this one COULDN'T be rescheduled. She will not be able to fit into the costume to much longer.

As for Keith, I don't by the whole.. he didn't show out of respect for others. Not plausible. He is a professional musician, and he wouldn't stay away from the Grammy's out of respect for the other Country Artist, that thought is too far fetched.

However, I believe Keith may be so PW'd that if she couldn't go, he wouldn't go. This is VERY plausible, as he has traded his addictions from Alcohol and Drugs to her. I do believe HE chose to skip the Grammy's! The excuse was cooked up by Nic's PR team because HE didn't realize that the fans would notice....again making one of MANY mistakes and missteps in his career. He claims to have balance..the reality is that HE cannot balance his high profile marriage with his career, and missing the Grammy's is Proof!

doublewide said...

great post skepticRN.....and i think you are very close to the truth....kinda sad, really, that the grammy didn't go to somebody who actually gave a rip snort

Imahick said...

I agree SkepticRN. He chose to skip the Grammy's to be with NK. It is likely his decision. But can't you hear her crabbing at him if he HAD decided to go and leave her in OZ while he went to LA to attend an award show? He'd never hear the end of it, if the telephone conversation with TC is any example.

If it was my husband, I'd re-schedule the photoshoot (why did she agree to it in the first place...to be held at the same time as the Grammy's were planned. It's not like the Grammy date was just announced!) or I'd tell him to go and enjoy it ... don't worry about me. But instead, she did the photo shoot...and I don't believe for a moment she suggested he go.

When I saw the KUTube from MSG on his site, I realized that he really wanted her there ... to see him play the Garden. She IS his wife and though I didn't really want to hear about subpar shows because of her presence, I actually thought she would go...she said she would tour with him (over & over).

She SHOULD have been with him for a major show like that...even if it was just ONE show. It was a milestone in his career and she should have been there to celebrate it with him.

But no...she wouldn't come over to the US for him...she had work to do. She will, however, come over for the Oscars...HER career.

For those who support NK, I can't understand how you can see this type of self centered act over and over and not recognize her for what she is...a selfish manipulative cold self absorbed woman who is more concerned with her career and herself than with anyone or anything else. This goes for her husband and her kids (who she doesn't even include as members of her family. That says it all)

Whatever...he's made his bed. It's just sad that his career will continue to suffer until this is over. And I am especially sad that a child is being brought into this union. God help the poor little tyke.

" Photoshoots can be reschedule." (inittowin)

"Well I will agree that since she is pregnant this one COULDN'T be rescheduled. She will not be able to fit into the costume to much longer."

Yes that is a relevant point skepticRN ..but I tend to doubt that it was such a nesessity. In this day where pretty much every celeb and model photo shoot is photoshopped to the max, where faces are not only smoothed and "youthanized" to near fetus appearance... their waists trimmed, and breasts lifted, and even instances of bodies just simply replaced... it would be just as easy to slap on another body, in need be. But the fact is she would not even consider canceling, even for urban's grammy night. Now whether urban decided not to show himself or not, it did cause enough questions for an official excuse of his sick mother to explain it seems to indicate that something is not so clear, or apparent in the real cause. And the fact that kidman used to say before she remarried, that she would give up making movies if she were to remarry,because she did not believe she could remain happily married and work at the same time, obviously shows how disengenuous she is..

realitycheck said...

I will say it again. The only people that keep harping about Keith not being at the Grammys are the skeptics that are never satisfied. Here's how the night would go...

Keith wore the wrong outfit. The cameraman was paid off by Wendy Day to show NK too much. Nicole didnt give Keith an appropriate-length kiss when he won. The kiss was totally fake. Her dress was ugly. His acceptance speech wasnt good enough. Personally i see it as a blessing that Keith wasnt there. That way the skeptics couldnt spit all over his appearance that night. Because lord knows if he won and he was there he didnt deserve it. Oh but they're saying that anyway.

doublewide, i do believe he is the first artist to confirm his appearance at the CMA fest.

However, it wont matter for Keith. Whatever he does it wont be enough for the hard-core skeptics. He wont have played long enough, too many of the same covers, too many of the songs from LPATWCT, he'll dedicate GIRTT to NK....there will be SOMETHING to upset the hardcore skeptics in a poor attempt to taint Keith even being there.

And all this proves one thing. They think Nicole is Keith's boss and they dont like it. The skeptics want to be Keith's boss.

wastedemotion said...

I dont want to speak for other people, but I think it's safe to say most skeptics want Keith to be his own boss.......he's done a lot I dont agree with, or I wouldnt have done, but Im not him. I just want him to go back to doing things his way because to me it's clear they are being done her way. You cant follow the man for 12 years and not see a change in the way he does things come about as soon as she comes into the picture.
It's also clear from this blog that if you idolize Keith there is nothing you can say to change the mind of people who see his faults and acknowledge he has them and the same goes the other way there is nothing a skeptic could say that would make him fall from your pedestal you place him on because in your eyes he's perfect, so why bother reading this stuff, what does it give you?

ShutUpAndSing said... (from previous thread..."Healthy Debate About What?"

"I found this interesting.
This is a sad indication of where Keith's career is heading.."

http://www.hitpredictor.com/country.artistchart.php

Just wanted to highlight this link that ShutUpAndSing posted in the previous thread... to find urban, just scroll down... dont see it yet? Scroll a little farther down... down.... there, all the way to #26. This is what happens to you when you marry kidman... end up in rehab only 4 months later, then your cd sales are lackluster and you half ass your touring.

undecided said...

It doesn't matter how many times you say it, it doesn't make it true.

He should have been there.

I stuck with him through the bad, I am entitled to think he should be there for the good.

White Trash said...

I don't Keith has ever been his own boss and he doesn't have the personality to be a "take charge" kinda guy when it comes to his career. I think he's more than happy to let Borman or even Nicole and her people handle things for him.

Though, I think the real "Queen of Manipulation" is the one writing this blog.

doublewide said...

so, she can go to tokyo for her movie premiere of TGC.....but she can't make the Berlin Cinema for Peace because she is "expecting a baby, giggle giggle" figures....

what is it? about 9 hours from sydney to tokyo....just a little jaunt for an expectant mother.

and of course, the grammys was COMPLETELY OUT, because, after all, it's just keith's silly little country thing that he does. not important in the least in the grand scheme of her career.

notachance said...

"Though, I think the real "Queen of Manipulation" is the one writing this blog."

Sorry whitetrash - I'd have to disagree on that point. If UM were capable of manipulating anything, we'd all be on their train by now.

But I do agree that Keith does allow Borman much control over all things business. I think as long as Keith has the creative freedom he desires and the outside life he always wanted, he's going to be happy.

He doesn't owe anybody anything IMO, unlike the skeptics who believe Keith owes them everything that they demand when it comes to the direction of his career.

AmandaPornstar said...

This is my first post.

Why would Keith stay away to give respect for the other nominees? That's the funniest thing I've read in a long time.

I love how she can fly to Tokyo for her movie flop premier, but can't make her charity event because she's pregnant? Huh, that seems a bit backwards doesn't it? I love how radiation was used last week and now she's jetting to Tokyo to show off her see thru dress yet again, for her movie. IF she's so concerned about radiation, skip the damn premier! It's so ridiculous at this point, it's really kind of funny.

doublewide said...

welcome amandapornstar! love your name, btw

notachance said...

There's nothing wrong with that dress. It's a very pretty cocktail dress that I would wear to a party. It's not "see thru" like the last one was.

Any word on Keith being with her in Tokyo?

AmandaPornstar said...

That dress is hideous. It looks like something died on her. What's with the feathers again? I wouldn't be caught dead in something like that, but I guess to each his own.

Thanks for the welcome doublwide.

don't believe the lies said...

Speaking of the Tokyo trip she doesn't look pregnant at all?!?! Am I the only one that can't figure it out? She should only have what like 3-4 months left? She's flat as a board. Unless she's having the skinnest baby ever to go on record I think she's full of crap.

Oh about Keith not being at the Grammy's he should have. There's no way around it. Whether he left her at home and took whomever he should have made an appearance. Hell he could have jumped on HER private jet afterwards and went back to playing her bitch boy. Whoever said it maybe because he wanted other people to have the spotlight I say WTF are you thinking? They don't need Keith to not show up to stand well enough on their own. Please, they have pulled so much farther ahead than Keith is and maybe ever will be again. Their record sales are doing great and their fans respect them.

Tara said...

Sorry but the non appearance at the Grammys really said a lot because before Kidman he would have shown up.
He loved to go to those things and do the red carpet and participate. Is sitting at a photo shoot really that much of a draw?
As for Kidman and her new outfit
well it was done to get in the papers and next weeks tabs. Nothing quite like that cry for attention. Guess thats as strong as having a Dr. Botox visit. So sad isn't it?

White Trash said...

Hate bringing up the grammy thing again, but correct if I'm wrong cause I taped the show and thought I watched most of it. Keith's win wasn't televised was it, wasn't it one of those done before the show? So if this is the case why would he go, he wasn't asked to perform.

And yeah, I saw the dress Nicole was wearing...it doesn't look see-through, but it sure does look pretty darn ugly. What the heck was she thinking? It looks like someone in sewing class, just pieced a few rags together with no rhyme or reason. Bad-bad choice!

woriedmonkey said...

Keith is, no doubt, something of a tragic romantic.. very commonin addictive personalites. that's what makes him a beautiful heartfelt performer and also gets him intro trouble with relationships.Hence the striving for balance.

I can understand if Keith stayed away from the Grammies because NK was have scares in the
'pregnancy' or was trying to limit travel,flying and general chaos. When I was Pg, I wanted to nest and not go anywhere ( esp given her history). So how weird did it look for her to jet off to Toyko now and suddenly be ok to attend her BIG event at the Oscars. The only plausible explanation would be if she passed some milestone in her pregnancy... out of the first trimester.
However, miscarriages can still happen at 5 or 6 months, rare but possible,


I feel for Keith in all of this even thouigh he is maing the choices. So wanted him to be with a
genuine persoon because I truly believe that he is.. or was... maybe he fell for her because she was from Oz and had a parallel celeb status but the status part never seemed to be something he needed... being a man of the people.

I hope she doesn't ruin the child. I can barely stand to hear her speak anymore. EVERYTHING she says seems to contrived and juts weird....
re " the child inside " wont be seeing the movie anytime soon....oh and the bizarre way she talked about children giving or being a part of you and her career...still trying to figure it out but since she is so convulated is it any surprise...

ooooo I am worried for Keith. She's a peice of work.

maclen said...

Boy, just saw the japan pics over at NK forhead... I agree with Anna... she now only wears the most hideous dresses because thats the only way she can get any kind of attention. Now as for the "bump"... looks like this kid will only be about 3 inches long and weigh about 2 ounces if, and when it is actually born! But here is the reason it's seems to be so confused and inconsistant of how far she is in this so called "pregnancy. It seems obvious she is not as far along as it was made to appear. Why? Because back in Oct of 07, team kidman leaked that she was gaining weight for the role in the movie, the Reader...which would then explain the comments online about how she suddenly looked so "bosomy".. Why? To try and cover the fact that she actually got breast inplants... But then, when team kidman leaked to the Daily mail that she was "expecting" just after the new year, '08, and then denied the story at first, then only a week later confirmed it...(team kidman is really inept at PR and leaks and excusses)... the reason for the new "bosoms" changed from gaining weight for a movie to shes pregnant... but the date of Oct '07 for her growing bosom was already established, so a new leak that she concieved in late oct of 07 was then also put out... and so by that reasoning, womans breast now start to grow noticably at conception! And presumably even weeks before conception! What a tangled web we weave...yada yada yada....

woriedmonkey said...

Sorry about my spelling there. NK is so convoluted in her comments to the press.... whether this is to appear 'intelligent', 'different', 'deep' who knows. Methinks it is a manifestation of how inwardly contrived she is... too bad she's not a better actress. I have grown to dislike her more and more since she
hooked KU and while I'm sure they are both superexcited about having a baby ( who wouldn't be) I worry about how the constant tweaking of the truth will rub off of baby kunk. Great point about the Breasts timeline maclen.
She has also been puffy around the jowls and generally looked off which could have been from the hormone shots which presumably she'd been take to get preggo. So disappointing that KU ended up with a mannequin. Anyone- that is, anyone with a body- standing next to her will look odd and short. She's doesn't seem to be doing her husband any favors- except for having his child. He wanted to be a Dad, remember

On another note... if he IS genuinely in love with her I wish him ( and grudgingly them) the best.
As Morrissey used to sing; " I am human and I want to be loved, just like anybody else does".

notachance said...

NK the person, NK the business. There is a difference, isn't there?

Participation in certain events may be based on NK the business decisions - events that are non-income generating, hence the video feeds with NK the person delivering her excuses that come across so poorly.

Maybe it does all come down to money.

Just a thought - not a defense.

maclen said...

Hey Woriedmonkey, yes, great to see you on the thread. Thats a great title, The Breasts Timeline", I think Ill patent it under that title!
But I do see your point on kidman, and the obvious, as you say, convuluted statements and actions. You know, I wasnt always so irritated by her... in fact, back when cruise dumped her in 2001, I actually did feel sympathy for her. And noticing how she seemed to talk of it, a year later, then 2 years later... 3 years later.... IT jsut appeared to me that she seemed to be milking it, especially at the time her movies were coming out... I recall for the film The Hours, she said it helped her to cope with the hearbreak of the split, for Cold mountain, she said she used her relationship with cruise to portray the character who falls in love at first sight... that she didnt do the film In the Cut because of the heartbreak of the split... It just comes to a point where you dont believe she can feel, or have empathy, or deal with reality unless it pertains to one of her films. Which of course, in my opinion, explains why she is constantly filming somewhere, working even to the determent of her personal life, or personal commitments, like her marriage, her adopted kids. To lose the life on a movie set is just inconcievable to her, which explains why urban is sitting at her photo shoot instead of going to the grammys, and probably why he'll most likely be at the Oscars with her because it is about her career.

ShutUpAndSing said...

notachance

I truly don't know that there is a difference for Nicole. I understand what you saying but I don't think that she knows how to just to be a person and not a celebrity (business)

notachance said...

Maybe it's possible that WE don't ever see the person Nicole, because that is the part of her life that isn't photog'd and filmed. Obviously Keith sees something there..... cause if he's seeing in private what we see publicly from her...... I just can't fathom that one.

Excuse me, you can see her black thong AGAIN!

KUsnob said...

Wow, what'd you guys do, go and recruit from the bunny board? Amandapornstar (harhar), Worriedmonkey, OR have you guys just doubled up your screen names, so you can have more defenders in your Nicole bashing.

I'll give you that dress though. It's amazing what thousands of dollars'll getcha.

isitoveryet said...

kusnob - I am so sick of hearing that we all have ten screen names on a board. There are a lot more of us out there than you think! Is it hard to imagine that sooooo many people can't stand her? This comment is so high schoolish!

notachance said...

The bottom of that dress is not see thru at all. There are layers there. Only the top has the see thru mesh.

ShutUpAndSing said...

Yes there are two layers on the bottom but both layers must be sheer because it sure looks like her underwear to me..lol

doublewide said...

that really was uncalled for......you talk about NK bashing, but you're pretty bad yourself to other posters....is it so hard to believe that ALOT of people see NK for what she truly is? high schoolish is right!

inittowinit said...

There isn't a chance in Hell that's anything other than her underwear through that dress! Layers? I've never seen a layer that is cut up high on the side, downward toward the crotch, and rests beneath the belly!

maclen said...

So apparently, not only has her movie career collapsed, but her standing in the eyes of the fashion set has so fallen, that they'll only give her their bottom line rejects. Or perhaps urban was able to get it into the prenup, in exchange for kidman getting to make up his touring and breaks schedule, urban gets to choose her wardrobe...

doublewide said...

the fashion police will be all over this one.....can't wait to see the comments. what a riot

notachance said...

I don't know what the hell you guys are looking at, but the picture on THIS site clearly shows a white/gray underskirt with the black mesh on top. You cannot see any underwear at all.

Those glasses you guys wear must have special vision...

doublewide said...

i didn't see the underwear at first either.....but when i started really looking i could see black either thong or bikini. look starting up at the waist, and then below the little bump

isitoveryet said...

notachance - look at the hump area of the "h" in the watermark - you will see the black image that is underwear - perhaps even a thong!

maclen said...

...your right, isitoveryet. If you go to Getty Images here:
http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?EventId=79765010

...scroll down and click on the second to last picture to enlarge, you can see her black thong... no doubt this dress is more transparent outside... and no doubt to be used in the future.

banbotox said...

notachance you have to give up the dress...it is hideous and the fact that she is preggers makes it all the more ridiculous for her to be wearing anything see-through.

However, mission accomplished camp kidman.

Imahick said...

Yes, I see her underwear. Nice. The dress is hideous. Good Gawd.

As always, this is all about NK. Keith has made so many concessions for her...and there is NOTHING in return from this woman. It's all about her career. If there was any consideration for anyone else...for her charities...for her kids...for her husband, she'd have gone to LA, visited with her children (Ivanka and Caleb), joined him for the Grammy's and then, gone along on the last few tour dates. She'd have at least been there for Madison Square Garden...it was important to him. He SAID it.

Make all the excuses you want for her. She's a selfish inconsiderate self important arrogant woman and I'm adding poor fashion sense to my description after seeing that mess at TGC premiere. Yikes.

isitoveryet said...

Did anybody see her on Access Hollywood tonight? She actually did forget her kids' names for a few seconds at the premiere!

don't believe the lies said...

Well I'm not surprised she forgot their names. She really has no connection to them. I bet it makes them feel real good to know that their "Mom" is such a selfish woman. She really shouldn't be allowed to have kids.

Urban Myths said...

She's a selfish inconsiderate self important arrogant woman

Which she proved yet again. Keith didn't attend the Grammy's cause he was holding her water bottle and her purse and her vomit bag and her sweater on the set of the photoshoot, yet she flies to Tokyo for the premiere of the flop known as the Compost. Then on to LA to "present" an award. Such a pompous self-serving wife you have, Mr. Kidman.

woriedmonkey said...

To KUSNOB... it that 'KU Snob" or "KU's nob" ?

I am actually new to this board and not some doubled up umythic... so new I have no idea what the bunny board is ( please advise). I have no axe to grind with KU and I wanted to like NK, really did, but started to feel several years ago, a most unpleasant sensation when I was watching her on film, in interviews, posing wherever she was posing. Unlike the majority of 'stars', who god knows usually have Winnebago sized egos, I saw something else.
A star who was , is........ pretentious......... and possibly not unlike Gwyneth Paltrow.... elitist.
Plus she was so hideously bad in, say (name the movie) Eyes Wide Shut I could scarcely believe it.
I wanted to like her, I really did and I too felt sorry when Cruisebot sent her packing but my BS detector starts beeping off the charts whenever I see her.
The now infamous declaration that she had "nothing' in her face will go down as one of the most laughable statements in recent popculture history. WHy can't she be honest. She'd be a helluva lot more likeable. There are reasons she is BO poison .She has made a joke of herself.

As for the thong-googling; it's fun and goes along with her deplorable lack of taste. I started to worry when I saw the honeymoon pix of KU and NK and she looked liked something out of a 1980's Tampax ad with her straw hat, white cravat, white shirt and jeans.... they so do not go together.

I am guessing that she must have some super marvellous qualities we don't know about to keep him glued.

But the fact is, if they are happy together none of our gripes matter in the least, IN fact, they probably don't matter anyway but I feel better for venting....

keith chose his wife over the grammys. he wasn't performing, his award wasn't televised, and he wasn't predicted to win. i can see my husband making the same decision under the circumstances. keith did say home is "wherever my wife is" after all.

as for the dress, i'm going blind trying to find that damn thong (even with the getty link), but there's no denying it's hideous.

Oh...almost forgot.

I'm sure everyone caught NK's quote about
"My Isabella and Connor", when she was talking in Tokyo about making film's for children.


Now she's using the Possessive form . The mind boggles.

Thats a good catch woriedmonkey...another quote to place in the vault that I am so certain will also come back to plague her. Of the endless list of films she has in pre-production, rumored or considering... that I can recall just off the top of my head is about at least 6 films... which is about 12 years in hollywood years.... a conservative number too... which of them is children friendly? As for the possessive quote, no doubt a mental over compenstation for her apparent neglect and distance from them... Uh...what's their names?

White Trash said...

And if she said Connor and Isabella, instead of using "my", half the people their wouldn't have a clue to who she's talking about. It's splitting hairs, but either way she says it, you'll find fault.

LOL, i had to squint and look really hard!

good post worriedmonkey

i still think he should have been at the grammys, but that's just me. unless he had a VERY GOOD reason, and the camera tells us he did NOT. except duties of water boy, purse holder, and toenail painter.

In our celeb-driven culture, and since she's a star of 'global' reknown pretty much everyone would know about her children, Isadora and Conrad, if she ever spent anytime with them. Since we 'know' ( from those unimpeachable sources, the tabloids) that they call Katie Mom and the kids supposedly call her Nicole, it seems pretty desperate of her to affix a possessive term to the kids,
Of course it could be the Japanese translation.

Also, I do feel for NK in this a little. It must be extremely difficult to see those kids she's known since infancy and no doubt, really cared for at times, be so utterly sucked into the Scienotology machine. That in itself is a relationship breaker. But my intuition is that she never really bonded with them because THEY were a compensation for the biological spawn she desperately wanted.... and for her I'm guessing that they were a poor second. Hence the mommy-smirk/glow she has now.Can't say I blame her for wanting her own bio-spawn but it does appear she got bored with
the kids as much as Tombot.

don't believe the lies said...

I think the whole "losing her kids to Scientology" thing is a joke. IF she really cared for those kids she would have fought harder to have them with her. The judicial system is what makes the decisions not the Scientology freaks. She has no excuse. I agree that maybe she never really cared for them because maybe they weren't her's biologically. She seems just selfish enough.

Jeniecho said...

I love your blog, first of all. It's truthful and refreshing. I was a Keith Urban fan from 2002. I have met Keith and Jerry. I have to say he has changed, it's heart breaking because his music is no longer out there, so to speak. You have a pic of the new Keith and the old Keith....wow, when I seen that my heart sank. I so miss the old Keith. It's like he is putting on a front. He was so sweet when I met him. Down to earth, loved his fans and music.
His last CD was not the best in my opinion. The greatest hits, I almost bought but didn't, song choice was poor.
Now, on the subject of Nicole...wow...she is just gross. Her attitude is HORRIBLE! Poor KEITH! Also, what is wrong with her face? Seriously, something has gone really bad! I just had to comment because I feel like you are putting the truth out there and it's a sad day for his music, that he once so loved! I miss the old Keith!!

"I think the whole "losing her kids to Scientology" thing is a joke. IF she really cared for those kids she would have fought harder to have them with her."

Yeah, I'd agree with that. At the very least they both share equal custody...if not , then its misleading of them in that they both say they "share" the kids upbringing, and it would also not be true that they are amicable about it. Kidman has all the means to truly contest any unfairness in the custody of these kids... the money... influence to get a hearing on it... noteriety to get it covered and not simply swept under the judicial system...etc. If there is a perception that she is a neglectful mother, and rarely even see the kids, it would most likely be that that is the reality... because if there is one thing kidman does incessantly and constantly, for things that really matter to her, is to play the media for the right spin. And I dont think she even cares anymore... in the past, whenever questions arose about it, she usually got in a photo op with the kids.. but after all the hoopla at the end of last year...kidman says the kids call her by her first name ... katie holmes says the kids call her mom, kidman first says she's spending christmas with them, and once its established they werent... she changes it to "spending it with her family...mom, sister and the sis kids.... and after all that... no more photo ops of kidman with the kids... you see... she moved on to her kid, that microscopic bump she's parading in Tokyo...then to LA... and no doubt back to OZ...but she couldnt make it to the grammys for urban because of her "delicate" condition...as i mentioned, that you can barely even see! .. and I'm not talking about black thongs...

maclen said...

... just read an article posted at NK's Forehead that it appears kidman is back on the juice again... it appears that "leatherface" at the Aussie Open has been transformed back into the smooth and impeccible "porcelana" in Tokyo. What with this premiere, and the Oscars this weekend, who really is surprised? And too think many thought that she would be too concerned, being that she is in such a "delicate" condition... to continue to inject and submit to medical procedures...It's one thing to be confident in the latest medical achievements, but again, for someone so concerned and having a so called "troubled" history in child birth... many would have had you believe she wouldnt even risk it. But with kidman, they seem to always wrong.

I guess Keith couldn't get to Japan
he apparently visiting Nicole's mother who was recently sick...
did I get that wrong?
ha-ha

notachance said...

Hmmmm.... maybe Keith played a little tit for tat - she wouldn't go to the Grammy's so he wouldn't carry her purse in Tokyo?

How's that?

CJ said...

Hummm, he had a show the 16th. Maybe he came to his senses (or got mad over the doctor's visit while he was in the states touring) and refused to fly from Virginia to Japan back to LA for the Oscars within one week. Wonder if he'll go back to Oz between the Oscar's and his show on the 29th.

White Trash said...

Obviously you don't since their names are Bella (Isabel not Isadora) and Connor, not Conrad.

...a few excerpts from a satire post on UM dated Wednesday, May 30, 2007...

Fugly in Pink

First in a three part series of comic relief for the blog…

"...Nic: "CONRAD...come into the pub with Mummy and have a soda pop."

Connor: "Uhmmm...it's Connor and no, I think I'll just stay outside and enjoy the dust in the air and the smell of cow manure."

Nic: "Oh...Conroy...now, come on and show the common people how much you love your Mummy."

... and this one from Monday, October 15, 2007
Keith & Nicole in NYC

A conversation between Keith and Nicole at the Carlisle in NYC, the afternoon of the premiere of her movie, Margot at the Wedding:

"NK: It IS my night. And if ISADORA and Cletus call…tell them that Mummy is busy and I’ll call them some time next week. I’m sick of their whining that I don’t have time for them. We had three lovely days together last July…they are so selfish and demanding...."



Clueless....positively clueless....

----------------------------------
Your "lie" is satire Tara, the blurb in the Daily Telegraph last week is pure BS.

A very good friend sent me the link to this deliberate deception attempting to calm and misdirect irritated fans wondering why Keith wasn't at the Grammy's.

Camp Kidman is playing with fire when they pull Mum into their web of deceit.


Urban legend

NOW it can be revealed why Keith Urban wasn't at the Grammys to pick up his award.

The dad-to-be and his wife, Nicole Kidman, were reportedly in Queensland visiting Urban's mum, who had been unwell. What a good son.

I'm sitting here reading all the well thought out comments and I have to say Thanks to you all for writing what I have been thinking.

And then there are those who will make ANY excuse for her behavior and I am shaking my head. Why can't they just admit she is a train wreck? It's just so laughable that the adoration of kidman continues at such a frenzy. I hope that in private you all are at least scratching your heads even if you can't yet get the courage to admit there is something really wrong with her.

Welcome to woriedmonkey and jeniecho.

CJ said...

1. We have photographic evidence Keith & Nic were NOT visiting his mom, she was doing a photo shoot for her next big flop and he was sitting around watching.

2. The last time we have word (but no pictures) of Keith visiting his parents he was on tour in Oz, they were at a coffee shop, and she wasn't there.

3. Has Nic ever gone to visit his family in their home? Not that I can recall.

4. How dare they bring Keith's family into their LIES. The Urbahn's have managed to remain very private. How dare camp Kidman try to force them into the media spotlight when they obviously don't want to be there.

i tell ya CJ.......nothing is sacred with that woman when it comes to keeping/making herself marketable....not even an innocent baby

Tara said...

that bitch kidman would whore out anyone if she gets the press for it

Anna said...

"Anyway, this was suppose to be a remote secret shoot, right? Out in the middle of absolutely nowhere, right? Nobody to call into the TV station and say, "Hey I just saw Nicole Kidman at a photo shoot." So remote that a TV station has to send a helicopter. Who told them?"

It's only a little thing but Richmond where the AL shoot occured is only an hour's drive from Sydney, I grew up there. It was shot at the polo club which is private property and a long way from the road which is why the tv crew used the chopper.
