Isn't that quite enough, Nicole?

I actually thought she was pregnant; I really did. I was amazed that all her quirks and foibles were coming out. You know, like when she and Keith were having lunch, and you can see where she takes her salad and places it on a smaller plate and cuts it up into little pieces and then leaves half of it. Or the Oscar report about her smoking and drinking. Or the falling of her face with that short stoppage of the botox. But, in the last few weeks you wonder if something inside Ms. Kidman has short circuited.

First, the “push out the belly” walk. Look at how she arches out the back and sticks that starving belly forward. Second, the see-through clothes. “Look at me, look at me.” Third, we have the whole “when is she due?” debate. Some say four months some five but how can we know from the bump? It hasn't changed in size for almost six weeks. Finally, this obsession with exercising. The woman is a lot of things and not a lot of things, but she was thin and did work out. Lately, it has been an obsession. Every day for up to three hours. Using weights and yoga and spinning classes. Spinning??? Is she afraid the after birth pictures that no one will really want won't come out perfectly? Well if you include Keith in that with the current haircut, you are already hedging your bets. Are you trying to show the world that you are just a pregnant woman like everyone else; that there are no problems; that you will be able to give birth and then run a marathon? Or are you trying to show up Katie and Angelina and all the other younger women out there popping babies out like they are tic-tacs?

Sorry Nicole, but you aren't just like everyone else and you have had problems in the past, and goodness knows you have droned on and on and on about it at some length for some time now. There are rumors that you are having someone else have the child. Many people do, that's okay. Why would there be something wrong with you admitting that? But no, you had to show the world that you are indeed preggers. Since no one has offered you a cover of a magazine to flaunt your maternal shape like Demi, Britney and Christina did, you are forced to lift all of those layers that you wear when you are out performing your obsession and stick out THE BELLY. Well, Nicole, not only was that unnecessary but it did something more. It showed how sad and pathetic you are that you have to live your life in the media. We know that those paps weren't just hanging around. You’ve shown the world that Nicole Kidman is an insecure person who craves attention and fame like an addict. Of course, we already knew that

I don't agree with those belly pic's being planned. Those photog's had giant lenses on their cameras - they were probably 100 yrds away. She didn't even know they were there.

isitoveryet said...

And what was the purpose of her lifting up her shirt - checking on a fetal heart monitor? Don't think so!

Perspone said...

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't think the shopping trip photos were planned. Even when Nicole is working out she does something makeup wise with her face, whereas here it seems to all be hanging out.

doublewide said...

i'm going with

belly pics, desperately planned

shopping, not planned

NotBuyingItInNashville said...

I'm amazed that the woman actually looks WORSE on a shopping trip, than she does working out!

I mean, how many of us does that happen to?

I agree - belly pics - a desperate attempt to prove that she is as fertile as Katie Cruise.

Shopping - a desperate attempt to show that she would be perfect casting as Bette Davis' role in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

notachance said...

I'm actually quite surprised that she went anywhere in public looking that way, let alone shopping. Even after working out for 3 hours she doesn't look that bad. And the clothes she had on just don't add up to NK to me. She just doesn't strike me as the type to go shopping for anything without "getting ready" for it.

maclen said...

I think the main point of the blog is that it is clearly obvious this woman is in desperate need to be in front of a camera...whether its on a movie set, 24/7... or on the paps camera lens, especially now that she has a PR gimmick shes trying to sell. And she really seems to becoming kind of pathilogical about it now... even veering into "crazy britney" territory... all that she's missing is constant trips to taco bell and an addiction to frappacinos....only for kidman it seems to be the gym and working out. How soon will it become that she has to be out and about everyday, with her own paparattzi entourage, the same one's she claims she is so " bodily threateningly " fearful of as she testified in court... or again, not very consistant for someone who claims to have a past problem with childbirth? She seems to be well enough to be on the move 24/7...getting daily photo ops, entering and exiting the gym, jogging in the woods... shopping about town...next I expect her to hike up the LA hills, and get a photo with the hollywood sign to declare to the world that she still exists!

White Trash said...

Well if you take into account that she's actually working out and the blood is pumping than she's getting circulation to her face. It looks to me she just stopped at the store after she worked out and hadn't showered or put any makeup on. Still, I'm sure you lovely skeptics will think of something more evil and planned.

You're armpits must really hurt from reaching so much!

realitycheck said...

yeah sure...only on Umyths will you get Nicole Kidman equals crazy Britney Spears. More desperate attempts to ignore the truth.

Speaking of truth, I thought that this blog was about finding it. And yet,in this blog entry like most others, we have a rehash of everything thats mentioned on the E! rumor board. Forget whats real...lets all jump on the latest rumor train and ride it until it runs out of gas.

Where is the truth? Its certainly no where near this blog.

notachance said...

maclen - get your facts straight. NK never claimed to have "childbirth" problems. She had a miscarriage, which is common.

I personally think she's in fine physical shape for pregnacy and childbirth. Her past pregnancy(s) have no bearing on this one. This miscarriage when she was splitting from Tom (if it indeed happened) could've happened to any one of us under the same difficult situation. Doesn't mean we couldn't have a normal pregnancy years later.

isitoveryet said...

realitycheck - unlike NKU, at least those of us on E and the UM blog have an expanded vocabulary other than:

Thanks for posting that picture!
Thanks for sharing that!
She looks beautiful!

We can speak our minds on E and here. We don't have to live within the cult-like atmosphere of NKU! We have our own eyes and brains to see and form our own opinions.

Ya'll think she is so beautiful on NKU - something must be in the water over there!

realitycheck said...

isitover, if thats all you think is posted there then you have read a very limited amount of posts. Ive read very intelligent reviews of movies, Nicoles performances, what she is doing next in her career etc.

And the "thanks for posting that picture" is just an average persons way of thanking them for taking the time to do so. Would a better way be "Let me express my gratitude for the swift manner in which you displayed the photographic image of Nicole"? What kind of wording do you expect anyone to say on a fan board?

I dont agree with some of the posters over there that everything Nicole does is perfect. But that doesnt mean theyre all crazy.

You say you have your own minds and ears but there is a blanket acceptance, at least by the hard-core skeptics, of any negative rumor. No proof is needed. But whats funny is that the rumors contradict each other. Many skeptics were convinced there's no way she's pregnant. Then when the drinking rumor came out they were the very same ones that were outraged. Why such outrage if you dont believe she's pregnant in the first place?

Believing every negative rumor and believing Nicole is perfect...two sides of the same coin.

What's equally funny is they're running another silly poll yet again using a photo that their buddy Anna has already deemed a "badly photoshopped" photo.

These skeptics are so convoluted in their fantasies and lies that they themselves can't even keep track of the stories they made up.

realitycheck said...

sonora, like who got Nicole pregnant? Its everybody but Keith. That one kept me laughing.

And the one about how she's a pedophile, lesbian, hermaphrodite 60 year-old whore who doesnt have a problem getting all these men to sleep with her! If I was all those things I'd have problems getting some...but not Nicole!

Imahick said...

I'm not sure if the exposing the belly pictures were "for the press" but I do wonder why she needed to lift her shirt up that high in a public place. I would be more discreet...but if I wanted people to see my belly??? Maybe not?? Also...I wonder how much experience her trainer really has in training pregnant people? He has been with NK for a long time.

The experts recommend NOT going by the heart rate monitor during pregnancy, but by RPE's (See below). No pregnant woman should exercise to the point of exhaustion, either. If you're tired, stop. It's OK to get a bit short of breath, but the guideline is that you should not exercise past being able to speak easily while exercising.

Heart Rate While Exercising in Pregnancy
By Lisa Stone, ACE

Q. I have read a bit about heart rate during exercise while pregnant. I have read estimates as low as 140 bpm but then heard my doctor say that she's had marathon runners run up until they're due. What's a good safe guideline to follow? I am currently in good shape and work out regularly with a heart rate monitor.

A. Toss the heart rate monitor, at least during your pregnancy, and listen to your body instead! The most recent ACOG guidelines for exercise during pregnancy make no mention of heart rate limitations; rather, they recommend using Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE). All that means is to pay close attention to your body's signals as to when you've had enough. It's okay to sweat; it's okay to breathe hard; it's okay to get a bit red in the face; IT'S NOT OKAY TO PASS OUT FROM OVER-EXERTION!

http://www.storknet.com/experts/fitness/exls48.htm

ACOG is the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists - THE experts.

The pictures I saw of NK after she'd been exercising (most programs recommend no more than 20-30 min. of exercise at a time) she looked totally done in. She looked exhausted to me...not just a bit flushed in the face.

She seems obsessed with the need to exercise. Is her history of anorexia manifesting itself thru' this obsession? In my opinion, it is NOT healthy for this baby.

As far as the shopping trip..holy crap is all I can say. I can't imagine her wanting those pictures out there. But why anyone ... especially someone of her stature ... would be seen in public looking like that is beyond me. Yikes. It does tend to make one wonder if NK is losing it. She's made some very odd decisions ... in terms of dress and even some of her public statements.

Maybe she's a little bit "off"? It wouldn't be the first woman who lost it under the kind of pressure she's facing...declining career, constant ridicule regarding her apprearance, hi risk pregnancy and speculation about it. Who knows...but it could be that she's suffering a mental illness of some kind.

banbotox said...

Yes it is quite enough Nicole.

As usual, the worshipers have excuses for everything kidman does. Talk about living in denial land.
Now we are to believe that kidman would buy off the rack for herself? C'mon now...Where are the designers to create her maternity fashions-maybe even bring them to her?

I think every photo op is planned-nothing is random in kidmantopia.

maclen said...

Well, Imahick, it certainly wouldnt be the very first time a celeb has lost it in the face of disappearing success, and the stress of trying to remain relevent in the always changing and shifting atmosphere that is Hollywoodland. The #1 issue of actresses in hollywood is the age factor. As it is well known and established that women in the business have far more narrow opportunities and most certainly have such a smaller shelf life as compared to male actors. In kidmans case, I'm reminded of Meg Ryan's case. Once very popular, a string of hugely successful movies... you know, that whole 'America's sweetheart" business... but once she hit 40, the flailing success...the whole ridiculous issue about her sudden extreme "trout pout" issue , the string of insignificant and film failures basically doomed her career... I can certainly imagine kidman just dreading that fate... and desperately trying to hold on to it. And I certainly dont believe she has the talent, or the competent PR team to avoid that fate.

realitycheck said...

"getaholdofurself said...

As evidenced by the new theory here that Nicole must be going crazy.

LMAO!

Her history of anorexia??? More rumors posted here as fact. My God, the way Kidman is portrayed here she's got more issues than Angelina Jolie in "Girl, Interrupted"!

As far as Meg Ryan goes she is a one-note actress. People buy her in romantic comedies and thats about it. I personally can only stomach her in "Kate & Leopold" and "When Harry Met Sally". The rest of her performances can go in the rubbish bin. But Nicole can deliver a complex and rich performance on film. I guess you could say Meg Ryan is to film what Carrie Underwood is to country music LOL

And i think her affair with Russell Crowe hurt her publicly. It also didnt help that the movie they did together, "Proof Of Life", was an absolute stinker. She's just not very interesting on-screen or off.

Imahick said...

I know for a fact that NK has been admitted for treatment of an eating disorder while she and Tom were together. This is via care provider from the treatment facility where she was admitted. Do you not see the signs of anorexia? Her hair, her hands, her bloating. It's almost textbook.

realitycheck said...

Wouldnt that be a HIPAA violation for you to know? Not that i believe it anyway...

The skinniest NK ever got was AFTER the divorce when she was under alot of stress. Understandably so.

I dont believe if she truly was anorexic she'd be able to conceive at all. If she was treated back when she was with Tom thats a long time to be suffering with a disease. With her age and that prolonged starvation how could she become pregnant?

As for the other things, some women experience hair loss when they are pregnant. The grey hair is just from age. People with anorexia get swollen hands. I havent seen that with Nicole. Every criticism about her hands is that they are too skinny and gnarly. If anorexics arent eating their hands are usually cold and blue, not red. Does Nicole have a condition that causes redness on her hands? Maybe, but its not anorexia. The only "bloating" she has is that "little pooch" of fat that you cant exercise away.

cricket said...

RC I was outraged because she was drinking in front of her recovering alcoholic husband.It was thoughtless and cruel.It showed no concern for Keith at all. Just what I would expect from a selfish self obsessed wicth like Kidman.I don't give a rats ass about Kidman or her maybe baby,but I do care about Keith and don't think she should be slurping wine right in front of his nose.

realitycheck said...

Once again a skeptic expresses herself as if this drinking is fact. Just where are those supposed photos???

Ah very good cricket... kidman's maybe baby! funniest line so far... and most telling...
now a song... coincidently....by The Crickets!

(kidman begins... in that horrible singing voice....)
"Maybe, baby, I'll have you(?)
Maybe, baby, you'll be true(?)
Maybe, baby, I'll have you for me..

(kidman's Maybe Baby takes over)
"It's funny, honey; you don't care
You never listen to my prayer
Maybe, baby, you will love me someday(?)"

(now in unison for the bridge)
"Well, you are the one that makes me sad
And you are the one that makes me glad
When someday you want me
I'll be there; just wait and see"

...now the question remains... will the Maybe Baby be there for the photo op?

Exactly Maclen, so why are you skeptos so quick to persecute Ms. Kidman if this is a normal "Hollywood" step in the ever-aging saga of actresses?

_______________________________

Doublewide - you crack me up with your so called "proof" that she's a lesbian or maybe bi. If you're so quick to know the facts which is it...a Lesbo or a bi-sexual? If you "know" this to be true one would think you'd have clear-cut details...or maybe you saw her kissing a woman in the movies or just dreamt it. I'm betting it's the latter. lol Way too funny!
----------------------------
And for those of you swearing she's had anorexic problems, why chastise her for it. You state it like it's a crime - if this is indeed true (which I've seen no proof or statement to that fact) than it's a shame and I would hope she's overcome it, regardless if she's Nicole Kidman or MaryKate Olsen or Karen Carpenter.

It's just really sad your hatred for her is so vile you have to attack her because she may or may not have an eating disorder. Just plain sad!

Imahick said...

Read my post. I didn't attack her. In fact, I expressed concern for this baby. Your vile comments toward the posters on this blog shows far more nastiness than most of the comments about NK.

I think she needs help. Sadly, no one in her entourage will tell her she's losing it, least of all her husband. She's surrounded by "yes" people, as is Keith.

notachance said...

I didn't think whitetrash's comments were anywhere near "vile" imahick. Go back and read her post again. I did just to make sure.

What she said was that there are posters on here that have "hatred so "vile" for NK...". I'm not an NK lover by any means, but the hatred here for her far outweighs what should be good judgement. The mere suggestion of her doing anything right and you (skeptics - and I use this begrudgingly these days*) are shutting the door immediately and completely unwilling to accept it and will put the hate spin in full play and turn it ugly.

*skeptic - I don't think any of you are skeptic any longer - you've all crossed over into total hatred of NK and unaccepting of anything she says or does and therefore the same rule now applies to Keith. I consider myself a skeptic - I can see & argue both sides of the coin. If you are unable to do that, then you are not a skeptic.

wastedemotion said...

Someone said a lot of women loose hair during pregnancy....
WRONG! Hair loss comes after pregnancy and/or while nursing, during pregnancy you get more hair. You want the skeptics to post facts, post them yourself. Stop reaching for excuses for your princess.....
If Nicole is in fact having hair loss she could have a vitamin or mineral deficiency.
Hair loss can also be caused by:
"Discontinuation of birth control pills or any other hormonal type of birth control method
Miscarriage or stillbirth
Abortion
A hormonal imbalance"

Of course they'd have to see him somewhere other than on stage to speak to him. Keith is concerning aloof to all.

Has Nicole and her associates demanded a retraction from the Post or filed a lawsuit against Cindy Adams and her boss Rupert Murdoch?

Answer: No.

Thanks banbotox... the truth is everything about kidman is such an easy joke... her films certainly are, her face has been transformed to Batman nemesis the "Joker" proportions... when I watch the next Batman movie this summer, , Ill certainly be reminded of kidman's warped features... as well as kidman's flagrant expoitative publicity shilling of ledgers death... yes sir, she got out the generic and basically bland press release before anyone ... even good buddy and ledger ex watts. Now the story of Maybe Baby... miniscule bumps...roadside baby exams for the paps...receding hairlines... crumbling forehead and cheek bones revealed in the harsh light of the "natural" sun... Kidman has become the funniest celeb in hollywood... should she be overjoyed by that?

banbotox said...

berry hill said: Has Nicole and her associates demanded a retraction from the Post or filed a lawsuit against Cindy Adams and her boss Rupert Murdoch?

Answer: No.

That's very true bh and I wonder how that would work for kidman-being such good chums with Rupert and then filing a lawsuit against his paper?

Berry Hill said...

Kidman and Murdoch are good friends. A statement supported from year's of observering and the 142,000 Google hits that mention both of them. A few examples include Kidman's wedding and the Simon Wiesenthal Center honoring Rupert Murdoch at a dinner where Kidman introduced him.

My point is; neither the New York Post nor Cindy Adams have suddenly announced her "retirement."

Kidman and her reps have not demanded a retraction nor have they filed a libel suit.

Kidman is not one to "let it go" especially when it's potentially so damaging to her image.

She sued over perfume:

///////////////////////////////////

"The Golden Compass" actress has accepted damages from a British newspaper that published a story claiming that she had breached provisions in her promotional contract with the popular perfume, report news sources.

Last month, the Daily Telegraph reported that even though Kidman had a contract with Chanel No. 5, she was seen carrying a bottle of a rival fragrance while she was in the UK promoting "Compass." As a result, Kidman's lawyer John Kelly claimed that she suffered embarrassment and distress.

//////////////////////////////////


Therefore the logical conclusion is Cindy was right and she can back it up with either a still undisclosed picture or witnesses and Kidman and Co. know it.

realitycheck said...

The suit over perfume was necessary from a business standpoint because it involved her employer. Its important in that way to say that the story was incorrect. Even if Nicole did not want to sue, I bet Chanel would have pressed her on it. She is one of their spokespeople.

You cannot equate a business decision with a ridiculous personal rumor.

WRONG! I said some do. In fact my mother did. She never had an eating disorder either. It can be caused by hormonal changes and/or thyroid issues. Not everyone gets lush hair and nails during pregnancy. Dont try and change my words to suit your agenda. And for the record I have never called Nicole or anyone else "my princess" ever. Dont put words in my mouth!

Still doesnt make it fact. If you think that not suing is proof that its true than you need to take a good logic class. Nicole doesnt like to sue over personal matters. Thats Cruise's pastime. Why drag this on when she has a pregnancy to enjoy? The only people that are still harping on the rumor are the handful of skeptics that post here and on the E! board.

Sonora_Melody said...

"Berry Hill said...

I strongly disagree! I have posted another thread that the US laws on defamation simply suck!

Kidman sued the tabloids on two separate occasions and won. Both of those lawsuits were brought up in the UK tabloids in the UK, where defamation laws are much stricter, as in Australia and NZ.

Because of the very lax defamation laws here in the US, tabloids can get away with printing almost ANYTHING.

To me the biggest proof that story is bogus is that Ms. Cindy Adams did not indicate any outrage over being called an idiot and having her work questioned as "not getting anything right". If I were a columnist, I would fire back at being called an "idiot" and demand an immediate apology from Kidman's publicist!

So far, no word yet from Ms. Adams to defend her story against Ms. Olim's statement!

The only logical conclusion to me is Ms. Adams is a malacious idiot who made up that story.

Sonora_Melody said...

"NotBuyingItInNashville said...
I'm amazed that the woman actually looks WORSE on a shopping trip, than she does working out!"

That's because those photos from the shopping trip were photoshopped to make her looked much older.

The photos showing her out walking with her trainer were taken a few hours before the shopping photos. There's absolutely NO WAY anyone can age so much in a matter of hours. Both sets of photos were candid ones where she was not wearing any makeup. It's obvious the shopping photos were tampered with. This is no different than the time the paps posted some photos of Victoria Beckham where they obviously photoshopped some varicose veins onto her legs and thighs.

Sonora_Melody said...

Need proof that Cindy Adams is a complete idiot?

"Reported by Ms. Adams:
October 29, 2007 -- MOMMY-to-be Nicole Richie. 3:30 p.m. Pony tail, black jeans, waistcoat. Exits DaSilvano with one young girl, one middle-age lady. On the sidewalk, after checking who's at which outdoor tables, she lights up. They jump into a waiting black Caddy Escalade, Nicole into the front seat. Still smoking.

Three days later, 7:30 p.m., Nobu. For somebody who doesn't eat, she sure frequents lots of restaurants. She's there with the baby in the bun's father. They leave. Outside she lights up again."

Posted Oct 30th 2007 1:09PM by TMZ Staff:

"A report surfaced yesterday saying a pregnant Nicole Richie was recently seen smoking outside of two NYC restaurants, but that seems highly unlikely... as she's been out of the country and hasn't been in the Big Apple in months!

TMZ tried to smoke-out NY Post columnist Cindy Adams, who published the inflammatory item, but we were not able to nail down the exact date when Nicole was allegedly spotted lighting up. Cindy's spies are clearly a little slow with the tips, as Nicole hasn't been in NYC since September 5 for Fashion Week -- and that was nearly two months ago!"

Clearly, Cindy Adams has the habit of writing inflamatory items without proof! And her "spies" are clearly sending her some made-up stories.

Any sensible readers should view those so called "sightings" without accompanying pictures as suspect. As an example, one Aussie paper,news.com.au, reported today that "Nicole Kidman was spotted shopping in George Street, city (Sydney) last weekend" lol... Nicole has been in the US since the Oscars and there has been many pictures of her in LA.

realitycheck said...

It is very curious that an established columnist who's been around the block more than once would tolerate being called an idiot essentially in front of the world. Not a peep from Adams on how she was slandered and deserves an apology. Having people read what she prints is her bread and butter. No one will do that of they think she's just making up stories. Even though she's a gossip columnist she's got to have at least a little credibility.

Its obvious the pics of Nicole in Brentwood were tampered with. Just look at the "creases" on Nicoles neck. Ridiculous. Did Nicole drink some crazy aging syrum after her workout??!!

undecided said...

No, the only logical conclusion is that Ms. Adams doesn't care what Nic's publicist says through a blog like Perez'. She's above that in the gossip hierarchy and won't acknowledge it.

Imahick said...

I agree with undecided. The only credible denial would have been a retraction by the original source, if not legal action. But I think she was drinking wine. I am not saying she's drinking all the time, but I do think she was having a glass of wine backstage to calm her nerves.

They used PEREZ's site because they couldn't go for a retraction ... so they made a strong statement that was going to be widely distributed. Mission accomplished.

ok, here ya go. i have a good friend who lives in CA, and was here visiting. he was employed by tom and NK, john travolta and kelly, michael jackson.....etc. he was at a function when NK walked in with a tall blonde model and went to a back table in the establishment and started making out like crazy. saw it with his own eyes.

he also said NK isn't much to look at, buy kelly travolta is drop dead gorgeous. he told me all of this NO KNOWING i was a keith fan, and i disliked NK. so believe me or not, but i swear this is how it went down.

i'm not gonna address the issue further.

Of course I can equate the two actions. I have.

And what you call a ridiculous personal rumor I would call libel. However, truth is always a defense.
Unless the libel laws have changed since I went to school.

"I didn't think whitetrash's comments were anywhere near "vile" imahick. Go back and read her post again. I did just to make sure.

What she said was that there are posters on here that have "hatred so "vile" for NK...". I'm not an NK lover by any means, but the hatred here for her far outweighs what should be good judgement. The mere suggestion of her doing anything right and you (skeptics - and I use this begrudgingly these days*) are shutting the door immediately and completely unwilling to accept it and will put the hate spin in full play and turn it ugly.

*skeptic - I don't think any of you are skeptic any longer - you've all crossed over into total hatred of NK and unaccepting of anything she says or does and therefore the same rule now applies to Keith. I consider myself a skeptic - I can see & argue both sides of the coin. If you are unable to do that, then you are not a skeptic."

i agree with everything you said, notachance. i've seen no comments about the posters on this blog that could rival the hateful comments made about nk.

there's a big difference between skeptic and hater, which seems much more fitting for those with their claws out concerning anything and everything nk. i don't blame her for keith's decisions -- he's a big boy; i don't believe everything the gossip columnists tell me as they're selling magazines, not truth; and i don't disect every move made by two people that i don't even know, who are just trying to live their lives.

doublewide said...

whenever i feel like i have seen NK do something that is not TOTALLY self-serving, then i will be more than happy to give her the credit. to date, i have not seen anything, only things to the contrary.

she has only shown me a controlling, selfish, manipulative, powerful, spoiled, "entitled" only to the best of everything, person.

and BH, i totally agree with you on the libel issue. it is so very nice having you here.

"Another Oscar night "neck" for ya.

http://tinyurl.com/2c4o76"

Did I claim she had no lines on her neck naturally? The photos have been tampered with. Features exaggerated. Even the coloring looks to me like its been changed a little. Like they yellowed her out on purpose to make her look sallow.


If Nicole's people were to sue over every personal rumor they'd be working overtime for what? Certainly not to get rid of the rumor mill.

Berry Hill, there is a difference between rumors about yourself and ones that involve your work. In that the one about your employment needs to be addressed because you receive compensation from a company and that rumor claims you are violating your contract. A contract that says you are are a spokesperson and you stand for this company. No one is going to get hurt over the drinking rumor financially. She's not going to lose her next movie role and no studio is going to lose money. Thats the difference.

The skeptics can say what they want but wishing with all their might this rumor is true wont make it so.

doublewide, didnt you say your proof was not second hand? For that to be true you would have had to seen the making out yourself, not your friend. I dont believe an A-list star who is known as a straight woman would go to a public place to make out with another woman. Too risky. And of course she's blonde right? Just like Naomi Watts, who shes secretly in love with.

doublewide said...

i forgot to add the make-out session with the blond model was at a PRIVATE party. not a PUBLIC place.

i don't see that happening, dw. for example, if nk travels with keith, the crew hates her, his performances suck, and she's only doing it to keep an eye on him. if she doesn't travel with keith, she's selfish and unsupportive. the woman can do nothing to suit.

ConfusedAndDeeplyTroubled said...

Third, we have the whole “when is she due?” debate. Some say four months some five but how can we know from the bump?

"How can WE know?" WE? Who exactly is WE? Her husband? Her doctors? Her Sister...mother...father...even her gardner?

Lol...are you sure you're adults? Come on be honest...it will make perfect sense and it just might stop people like me from visiting your blog...you know the ol' "Ah they're children, they don't know any better, let them enjoy playing in their sandbox" kinda thing. So 'fess up girls...how are are ya? 12...13...14?

How can we know...WE LOL. You crack me up...you do. Next You will be calling the Maury show for blood tests to find out if this WE is the baby daddy

realitycheck said...

doublewide, private or not, it doesnt stop anyone from telling tales outside of school. Why havent details of this event surfaced? It just seems to good to be true that no one would reveal this. People love a story where a celeb is exposed for being something other than what they claim to be.

confused, the skeptics arent 12 year olds. But they kept asking for proof Nicole is pregnant. They got it and they are still unhappy. Definitely a case of be careful what you wish for...you just might get it.

ConfusedAndDeeplyTroubled said...

realitycheck said...

Why do they need proof of pregnancy? IS Nicole Kidman asking anything of them...apart from their best wishes, I mean and even that is not a must.

So what exactly is their stake in this pregnancy? What makes them think they must have proof of it? See, an adult understands that a pregnant, married woman owes no one buther husband an explanation or proof of pregnancy. On the other hand, a child...well, let's just say with children, they might have a hard time separating their own lives from the life of their favorite celeb which is perfectly understandable...after all, their brain is still developing, therefore unable to grasp certain concepts.

realitycheck said...

In the grand scheme of things no they dont need it. But here in gossip land where every detail is poured over and discussed its of the utmost importance. They want to bring Nicole Kidman down. It hasnt been stated here but some posters on the E! board have explicitly said that is their goal. And i would imagine that that is the true intent of this blog. The pregnancy pictures and even the negative rumors havent done that so they are miffed.

Honestly Keith and Nicole arent the only ones who receive this kind of scrutiny and vitriol. Angelina and Brad receive massive amounts of hatred. Despite the KUNK haters not being the only ones out there, it still doesnt make it a more sane activity. I understand not liking a celebrity. Believe me theres plenty of them that i wish I'd never have to see again. But I just dont find discussing people i loathe a good use of my time.

Well, doublewide, who's to say you have to give her any credit for anything she does if you believe she is only interested in how it will serve her public persona? And I'm certainly not too impressed with her "charitable endeavers".. if you can actually even call it that. Truth is she has miniscule sympathy of the general public.. hence the little interest of her films here...as for foreign markets, its true of the legitimate and true deserving "A listers" that their foreign numbers are twice, if not a third higher than their domestic numbers. A "kidman" film is a true flop, domestic and foreign, and the films that have done well, she is simply a "faceless" and insignificant "voice", as in Happy Feet. Golden compass was a very bad and expensive business mistake by new line, and kidman's non existant BO appeal, as well as insignificant public support, of which as I've memtioned is very minimule, was no help in the debacle, hence the demise of New Line. So her "simpathy" was an inside the industry creation that transformed her from a mediocre movie performer to an illegimate A lister practically overnight. Yeah sure, the Foreign Press just loves her... they'd even nominate her for a golden globe for tripe like Birth ... but now that you mention your little "private party" with kidman and blondie.. makes me wonder what kidman has had to do in private with, for instance, the globes foriegn press members that would cause them to actually support her for so long after her non existant public appeal was finally revealed to be basically nil?

realitycheck said...

An update on The Golden Compass... The movie has made over $300 million despite not cracking $100 mill mark in the US which is a first for any film. Dont count out the sequels just yet.


http://tinyurl.com/2wqddy


Producer Deborah Forte is not only hopeful that The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass will be made, she is adamant…

“This was a success as a family movie in most countries, it’s a very strong family franchise, it won an Academy Award [for Visual Effects]. We have to make the second and the third movie. …”I will make ‘The Subtle Knife’ and ‘The Amber Spyglass,’” she vows. “I believe there are enough people who see what a viable and successful franchise we have.”

. A "kidman" film is a true flop, domestic and foreign, and the films that have done well, she is simply a "faceless" and insignificant "voice", as in Happy Feet.

I suppose Hugh Jackman, Robin Williams, Elijah Wood were insignificant voices as well? An insult to voice-over actors everywhere.

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

Golden compass was a very bad and expensive business mistake by new line,


The mistake they made was selling off the international profits. Its breaking records. It was unfortunate for New Line that the US is out of step with the rest of the world. But whats done is done. The sequels still may be made.

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

and kidman's non existant BO appeal,as well as insignificant public support, of which as I've memtioned is very minimule,



Baz Lurhmann could have picked many other actresses for "Australia". Why would he pick someone who is so disliked? Oh maybe its because he's sleeping with her...another rumor made up by the skeptics.
-------------

hence the demise of New Line.


Yes Nicole Kidman is the sole reason for the demise of New Line. Im not going to go through all the reasons NL failed again. They are posted everywhere on the net. But hello, the bomb "Over Her Dead Body"...a New Line move that should have been dead in the water before it was even filmed.

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


So her "simpathy" was an inside the industry creation that transformed her from a mediocre movie performer to an illegimate A lister practically overnight.


If thats true Tom Cruise needs to hire the same magical team. But he cant because it doesnt exist. And believe me if it did he would have used them by now.

--------


Yeah sure, the Foreign Press just loves her... they'd even nominate her for a golden globe for tripe like Birth.

The Foreign Press does give noms to tripe..just look at "Juno".

Nicole gave a masterful performance in a role that could have been a joke by a lesser actress because of the fantastical elements of the plot.

-------

so long after her non existant public appeal was finally revealed to be basically nil?


Was there an unveiling of her dislike because i missed it. Was it covered by all the major networks? LOL

worldwide said...

Does anyone know why NK is not on tour with Keith? She stated in December, when she was already pregnant, that she would be living the life of a gypsy, (what a joke) since that is how musicians live. So far, all she has done is photo shoots in Australia and exercise in LA.
Anyone know why she has chosen to not be with him? I am one of those that don't get the relationship either, but I am very curious why she isn't with him......if they are so in love, why isn't she with him? I suppose a tour bus is beneath her standards of living conditions. Any thoughts?

Hey worldwide.. well as has been pointed out in this blog, kidman says alot of things that she never actually does. As I've just pointed out, she hasnt even begun to visit a fraction of the countries and the unfortunate women and children she claims to be so concerned about and said she would visit... just google her Honorary ambassadorship press conference back in early 2006, on behalf of the UN.... She also claimed at the end of last year she planned to settle with urban on their new Tennessee "ranch", where she gushingly claimed was her new "homeland" because all the locals just love her down there... and that also is just a fraction of the statements she makes in those phoney and disingenous press jaunts and meaningless magazine interviews... and all those fairly tale stories are simply to shill for her pathetic movies that a more increasing number are avoiding like the plague... so expect there to be more, while her career smolders in a heaping pile of useless and forgotten celluloid kindling...

realitycheck said...

She also may be spending time with her two kids.

Imahick said...

Nicole was aware that she was being criticized for being in Australia for 9 months, while her recently rehabbed husband was having to fly over to her every 2 wk. Many people were making a big deal about how supportive he was and how committed he was.

I think those "oh so dutiful and committed wife" comments were in response to Keith's positive press coverage. She wanted to get her own "I'm a supportive" wife BS in ... and I really don't think she ever intended on being on tour with him or going to any of the important events in his life. If she had, she'd have been at the Grammy's and at the Madison Square Garden concert.

CJ said...

Keith has one more week of concerts in the US. Then he goes to Oz to tour. Not sure if she'll show on any of the US leg but since Oz loves her so much she might show up to some of those concerts. Jamie will let us know if she does.

Imahick said...

I would like to address the issue of NK's popularity in the US. To be honest, I don't think she is "hated" by everyone. I think people are indifferent to her. It is very hard to feel a connection with NK. She does not project a "warm" girl next door kind of personna, as some actresses do. She is wealthy and seems to flaunt that wealth, with the use of her private jet and decadent yachts and a lifestyle that no "average" person can relate to.

The fact that she is not seen with her children (this is noted and discussed on many forums and in the tabs), does NOT endear her to the public.

She chooses some gawd awful roles. She may be a good actress...I honestly don't think she's bad at all. But her choice of roles is horrid and so, the movie going public is never going to "get" her after seeing her in Margot or Fur.

When she gives interviews, she says things that make her sound scattered ... and if she is interviewed with limited preparation, she sounds inarticulate. I think that makes people think she's sort of empty headed.

On the other hand, she has a reputation of being classy and having lived a very difficult life. Why is that? Why do people think she's lived through such difficulty? In my opinion, Wendy & Catherine have done a great job painting her consistently as the 'victim'...victim to her X husband; victim to fertility challenges; victim to the COS regarding her kids; victim to cancer ... and yet, at 40 yr old, I don't see her life as being any more tragic than the average person's life, and in most cases, far less tragic because of her wealth and by all reports, excellent family support structure.

Generally, I think that the movie going public in the US is apathetic to her. They really can't relate to her...and they don't care either.

How can she turn it around? She continues to fly in her private jet inspite of the pressure to be "green". She admits to rarely seeing her kids, but to connecting with them by "webcam." Sorry...that doesn't cut the mustard for most! Rumors of her diva behavior continue to crop up. To be honest, I'm not sure what will help her here, but she needs to thaw out to start with.

Imahick said...

Oh...I have no doubt she'll be at some of his shows in Australia. That's for her...not him.

From Ted Casablanca:

"I rang Adams up. “To what do I owe the honor?” she bellowed. I mentioned Nicole and company. “You must want something,” she quasi-roared. “Yeah, I want to know if you stand by your story,” I most politely growled back. “I am not going there,” is all Adams would provide as explanation. Never known this broad to be circumspect. Ever.
“What have you done to Cindy Adams?” I then asked Olim, after calling to find out if she’d participated in any further private mauling of the New York institution. No response. I then told Mama Olim I’d asked Cindy directly, and she wouldn’t comment on the veracity of her original story.

“That’s because she made it up,” Ms. O sniffed. “But I must tell you, I’m done with my 15 minutes of fame on this one.”

worldwide said...

In response to the possibility of photoshopping the wrinkles on Nicold's face and neck. My husband is a professional photographer (30 years) and I showed him these pictures of her. (He doesn't get involved in any of this stuff about her) Here is his comment when I asked if this was photoshopped: It is easy to photoshop objects with EVEN COLORS such as a car sitting on a street outside. The picture of Nicold in the store shopping clearly shows that the front of her face is being lit by an in store type of overhead (tungsten, halogen) light which appears yellow or orange. Her back and side of her face have a blue cast from the daylight from a store window. It is extremely difficult to edit a photo and blend that type of lighting. The lighting clues indicate to him that none of these pictures have been photoshopped. Of course, the one used on this blog that is the comparison picture of her looking "glamorous" is HEAVILY retouched with controlled lighting to help decrease any imperfections.
My point of writing this, she really looks like a old and miserable woman. Yes, she is 40, but she needs to get over her diva attitude with these looks and come down to earth with the rest of us. Maybe she would be a bit more accepted in this world if she learned to age gracefully.

RC...you should have posted the whole thing:

"“That’s because she made it up,” Ms. O sniffed. “But I must tell you, I’m done with my 15 minutes of fame on this one.”Fine. Asked about Nicole’s tummy, as everybody in Camp Nic is keeping mum on the sex of Kidman’s expected baby with retired gal-wrangler Keith Urban. When’s the due date? “July, I believe.” Fab, I said, so very gay. Then asked if there was going to be a joint wedding anniversary (June 25) and Baby-X birth celebration. Olim said she found it a “personal” query but nonetheless promised the Awful Truth would be the first to learn if said hoedown goes down. Merci, babe, but quite frankly, I’d rather know what the hell went down to shut up one of Manhattan’s most notorious mouths."

It sounds like Ted thinks that all is NOT as Ms Odim says. I think he knows that Cindy has been "shut up" ... and I bet that the pictures will never been seen.

realitycheck said...

Pictures cant be seen if they dont exist.

I'd shut up too if i was wrong and called out on it.

realitycheck said...

Ted wouldnt outright exonerate Kidman. He loves drama, even if its made up.

"Keith has one more week of concerts in the US. Then he goes to Oz to tour..."

So, getting back to that always overlooked and always forgotten urban... not a good sign when your careers sinking faster than kidmans face... a quick checkup of the charts shows that he also has the staying power of kidmans Cold n' Comb over-pass... urban's G Hits cd fell 3 spots this week from #12 to #15... while underwoods previous cd, Some Hearts, fell only one spot from #9 to #10... but underwood's current cd, Carnival Love, actually jumped 2 spots from #7 to #5....and I also noticed that Taylor Swift has re-taken the # 1 spot. Boy, I bet urban is looking on as he falls down the charts with envy, as these two country blondes are ruling the charts... and look what he got himself swindled into with the furiously aging and peroxide "blonde" wannabe... urban no doubt is singing the "blue haired lady" blues, as this Crazy Carnival ride certainly belongs to underwood... and all he has to look forward to is cooling his jets, and making like a munchkin back to the land of Oz, and the wicked witch of the East...

imahick - your post was well thought out and quite possibly, the most eloquent thing written about NK in a long time - anywhere.

Interesting tidbit with Ted C.

maclen said...

So, just saw the latest batch of kidman workout photo ops over at NK's Forehead. And yes, she looks even thinner than the last batch of work out ops... the one where she showed off her beer belly... or is that "wine belly"? One has to wonder what the mindset of these obssessive work outs. Is it just the photo op of choice from the notoriously publicly tone deaf team kidman? Is it just kidman's previously mentioned anorexic bent taking over her sense of moderation or just a disregard of her past declarations of pregnancy problems? No doubt the movie going public will look at this over indulgance in physical exertion as a sign of her disregard of those past problems or just another case of usual celeb... and especially by this celeb... of lies and fabrications. Something like that cant be good for already failing business. Perhaps this new "Marathon Woman" is her typical public response to ex cruise latest squeeze's katie holmes press coverage stealing recent New York maration run? Perhaps she intends to not just run a marathon, but to outdo Holmes and run it supposedly 9 months pregnant? Trying to pick the head of a vain, self obssessed, self important and self centered and publicity starved woman certainlly can lead to the most bizzare and outlandish theories of her self preservation... beyond the already abuse of botox and collogen... and the ever more revealing cheek inplants.

CJ said...

Maclen, is it "wine belly" or "whine belly"?

IE: "But Keith, I know you have 3 concerts in CA but I don't have time to go to even one. I MUST work out you know!"

I wonder if Isadora and/or Caleb will attend one of the CA concerts - since it's a safe assumption it will be a NK free zone.

Urban Myths said...

CJ, I would think she may try to take Irena and Cletus to the Anaheim show, if she gets permission.

maclen said...

CJ said...
"Maclen, is it "wine belly" or "whine belly"?"

Its most definately whine belly, cj... As for urbans last 3 dates of underwoods tour in Cali? Cj, you surprise me... the notorious photo opportunist kidman not making it to one of these gigs? Seeing as its once again oh so convienent for her... being that it seems she'd already planned to be working out in Cali., would she skip em all? We shall have to wait and see what the real deal is. But then again, she doesnt seem to be too concerned about getting a photo op in with cruise's kids, or as is probably the case, not being allowed to get in a photo op. as I've said before, the reason she is so unpopular and her movies are flops, she isnt very good with all this publicity perception stuff. She has the exact image she so rightly deserves.
