A Tale of Two Pictures

A visitor to any of the Keith fan sites, Kidman worship boards, or the E! Board has seen some pictures from the concert in California. I was struck by a series of shots of Kidman. She is sitting at the show. Yes, you can see all the hair extensions. Yes, you can see her surrounded by her entourage - those people who derive their livelihoods from her. They are watching and reacting to the show. Keith's manager is there looking at Kidman and knowing that is the best deal he has ever made for his client. There are a few gawkers who are looking at Kidman, but the majority of the audience is looking at the stage. Everyone but Kidman, that is. Kidman looks bored to tears. She really looks weary and you can just tell she doesn't want to be there. She is using her public smile but you can see in her eyes how she so didn't want to be there. It is obvious. She is sitting though the whole show. Was she too exhausted from watching the intimate bodyguard beat up the big bad paparazzi? Heard the songs too many times? The eager fans who reported the concert to the masses said she sang every song. Of course, a few others said she just sat there and talked to her publicist. From the shots I saw she had more enthusiasm for the confetti than she did for her husband. Nicole, stay tuned.

Why would I say that? Because there is another picture that caught my eye. A friend got a shot of the duet between Keith and Carrie. “Stop Dragging My Heart Around” is no strange song to Keith Urban. He has performed it a number of times with many partners, including Sheryl Crow. Looking at this particular picture brought something rushing back into my head. What was that? Lust. Yep, dressed in her tight jeans and “do me” four-inch heeled boots, little Carrie Underwood came looking for something that isn't found in a box of Girl Scout Cookies. Something that Keith Urban knows all about. In the picture I saw, Carrie was singing and Keith was just savoring the moment. You couldn't get between them even if you had an In and Out burger. Keith was showing all indications of being quite pleased by her performance and it didn't matter if there were 15,000 people and a wife in the room. That man was interested. It was nice to see. I thought perhaps they did more than just a personality lobotomy at rehab. I wondered if something else was being kept under control. Well, if that duet is any indication, the fire didn't get put out in that man. It just needs the right kind of kindling.

If it were anyone else besides Kidman I would feel bad for her. It must be humiliating that your husband is getting turned on by a prettier, more talented and younger woman. But since it is Kidman, she was probably as turned on as Keith.

LOL LOL, i just love this one! he he

Imahick said...

I have to say that I saw a glimmer of interest in Keith's eyes during that duet. NK will have to increase the salt peter in his poached egg and asparagus appetizers.

I thought the duet was very good...I loved it and the guitar work was great. I think it was a much better selection than "brella." Too bad it's so near the end of the tour.

NK did look bored. Who wears a black dress with frills around the neck and a barette to a Keith Urban show? All that was missing was a big ass flower in her hair! I also noticed the many hair pieces / extensions in her "do". Wow...she has done some serious damage to her hair over the years. She sat the whole time and in the pictures I saw, she rarely even looked at the stage. But she was there...for ONE show in the US. Now there's a supportive wife.

She looks as out of place at his concerts as he looks at her premieres.

doublewide said...

yeah, she did look out of place and seated the entire show. how you can stay seated for one of that man's shows is beyond me.

i think i saw a little "come here baby smile" on underpant's face in that video, too.

maclen said...

Some had surmissed that kidman was actually sincere when she said she planned on joining urban on this tour, one reason being that she wanted to keep an eye on urban touring with the hotter at the moment, far more successful, and yes younger and certainly very "natural as of yet" underwood. Yet as this paltry one show appearence out of 17 shows, it's certainly proof that she was there simply for the photo op. Well, fat lot of good it did her as it is being overshadowed by the bad buzz shes getting from all sides. A few positive fansite reviews of her "performance" is hardly what she most certainly was expecting from this photo op. So, her descent into publicity catastrophy continues...
Oh yeah, just a country cd chart performance update...Underwoods previous cd, Some Hearts finally falls out of the top 10 to #11...but her current cd, Carnival Ride moves up one spot from #5 to # 4. While urban G-Hits cd remains at #15... no gain... will the gig with chesney be any help? So stay tuned! Same bat(face) time... same bat(girl) channel....

torrie said...

loved the post. Where is everyone finding these pic's you refer to? can someone post a link to them.
Should be interesting to see if Keith stays on the wagon when he gets together with Gary Allan and Kenny Chesney!

banbotox said...

Pity, poor bat faced gal-she just can't buy a break now can she...boo hoo.
I have to say that all of the pictures I've seen tell the same tale UM. Seated, bored, staring off into space.
So glad to see his "come here baby" smile directed at anyone other than kidman.

There's quite a few pics of the duet and a couple of Nickers if you scroll down this link:

realitycheck said...

What fools the skeptics have become. Its called stage presence, being in the zone musically, connecting with your fellow performer...and i dont mean sexually. I think the song is a better fit for them and so they were both very comfortable. Carrie can put on all the sexy clothes and fuck me boots she wants. She's still going to be plain as a Nilla wafer.

Urban Myths said...

Again with the name calling, realitycheck?

And your foul language isn't welcome here.

realitycheck said...

Thats what those boots are called. Why is it acceptable for a writer on Umyths to use the f word but not the posters?

doublewide said...

well, RC, you're a fool if you think that marriage they have goin is anything but a contract complete with a pre-nup.....

and you're a bigger fool if you don't think keith isn't lookin at carrie THAT WAY, boots and all. you kidding me, with HIS history?

i don't appreciate your foul language either

realitycheck said...

I dont believe anyone demanded that the blog with the f-word be edited. Some words are too strong for you and yet what i see in these posts is people wishing a man would cheat on his wife. Cheering on adultery is far more offensive than a curse word could ever be.

And Umyths you can single me out for name calling. But we all know that when you call the fans bunnies and that they are drinking the Kool-Aid what that really implies. That we are all crazy and deluded. So keep hiding behind your nicknames. I'm not here to mince words.

BTW hows that poll going for ya? I see the truth won by a landslide.

bloggers and posters alike have used foul language. the difference may be a symbol, but we can all read between the @#$%^&*()

as for the duet, i think it's a much better fit. love the backward 'dance' up the catwalk. i'm sorry i won't be seeing this one live.

notachance said...

I use foul language quite a bit on here. No one has called me out for it. She named those boots properly - everyone knows it. This place is people leaving commentary to a blog. If you don't want commentary - don't blog.

It appears that the skeptihaters have become quite sensitive of late. If you think that RC saying " What fools the skeptics have become " is name calling, then methinks you need to grow some more skin. That was an opinion, not name calling.

kumusicfan said...

I DO NOT care for the f-word being used here either. I think it needs to be edited or removed.

notachance said...

I find it quite ironic that UM wants to squash, what they deem to be *inappropriate* language, when their existence and sole intent is to counter the "bunny" & "love" sites that do not allow freedom of expression.

Cake and eat it too anyone?


It's not like RC used the word for no reason - maybe her mistake was not capitalizing it since it was being used as a name. The proper way should've been Fu*k Me Boots, or is it Come Fu*k Me Boots? (there, I tried to be delicate about it - did putting that asterisk really mask anything?)

Sonora_Melody said...

To the Skepti-haters who would go on and on about the size of Nic's baby bump:

http://www.people.com/people/gallery/0,,20184400_2,00.html - It looks like Angie's shrunk in size.

And to those who would go on and on about her exercising, here's something from 41-year-old Halle Berry who just delivered a baby girl:

"During her pregnancy, the Oscar, Emmy and Razzie winner told InStyle she felt "fantastic" thanks to eating right and keeping fit with yoga, swimming, light weights and an elliptical machine."

-----------------------------------
I don't think it's doubted that certain clothes may make one look a bit less or more pregnant than they are at the time. But they shouldn't change the appearance drastically, and the bump should still grow over time.

Good for Halle - but I don't recall her stating she's had previous miscarriages, nor an ectopic pregnancy - BIG difference IMO!

inittowinit said...

Also- Yoga involves stationary movemens. An eliptcal machine - again, stationary. Nicole was RUNNING - which is cardio but also involves movement and JARRING of the body - another BIG difference. Try comparing apples to apples next time please.

Healthy Debate About What?

You wonder why the music is lost? Because she couldn't give a f**k about the music. She is his savior.



Like notachance said, does the meaning change with that little asterisk??? Everyone here knows what that means and everyone reads it as the F-word. I know you claim to be objective but the jig is up.

realitycheck said...

Actually this blog is the property of blogger.com aka Google. You are using a free service that anyone can post on. No one gives anybody the right to post here. Thats what private message boards are for.

notachance said...

"and the bump should still grow over time."

Judging by the pic I saw over at NKU - the bump has exploded.

Imahick said...

If you're talking about the picture of her in her virginal white dress pushing her pelvis out as far as she can, I agree...it's the first time she has actually looked pregnant to me. But unless there are other pictures, the belly is partly hidden in that photo.

As far as posting on the board and using foul language, you all know that this is one of the only places you can come and express your "actual opinion" or, as some seem to prefer, bash other posters. Why not just try to avoid discord in reference to cuss words?

I can live with the F word being used, but it is a bit less graphic visually if it's muted with an * or other symbal. I think that it's just common courtesy ... but whatever. We're all big boys and girls, right??? If people feel that the F word helps them express something ... I'll survive.

isitoveryet said...

If the admin of the blog has the opportunity to shut off comments on this blog, I would rather they not. Just like other public boards, this just shows how rude and nasty the bunnies/Kidman's fans can be.

isitoveryet said...

Take a good look at the virginal white dress - did she get that tent size or what? That would make the Olson twins look like they were nine months pregnant!

Sonora_Melody said...

"inittowinit said...
Also- Yoga involves stationary movemens. An eliptcal machine - again, stationary. Nicole was RUNNING - which is cardio but also involves movement and JARRING of the body - another BIG difference."

That just shows how much you don't know about yoga!

Elliptical machine being stationary? I recall there was so much hoopla on this blog about Nicole with her spinning exercise, which is on a stationary bike.

As to Nicole "running", that's just the interpretation of the paparazzi. To those of us who are in fact taking up running, those photos show her doing a combination of jogging and power walk.

Sonora_Melody said...

Ah...skepti-haters say NK looked "bored" just because she was sitting the whole time?

With her nearly 6-feet height, if she were standing near the small stage, she would have been easily noticed and be the target of flashing cameras. Then you skepti-haters would say she's hogging the limelight.

isitoveryet said...

You don't think the tall and wide bodyguard blocked a few fans' view of the whole concert? It was a joke that she needed a bodyguard with her that entire time. I have seen that barricade, and it would take a lot of crazed fans to knock it down. I'd rather see her standing and cheering like everybody else rather than looking like she just woke up from a nap!

doublewide said...

i have my own elliptical at home, and trust me.....it's WAY different than a spin class. assuming it was the usual spin class she did, those things are KILLERS....you can set an elliptical at any resistance...it can be a very easy workout. a spin class is another story.

and with her history, which she has testified to, it's a bit much IMO.....and you can tell from at least one of the pics that she was running, didn't look like power walking to me.....but i could be wrong. something i'm sure you NK supporters will probably never admit to.

Sonora_Melody said...

"isitoveryet said...

According to some posts I have read from people who were ACTUALLY at the concert and sitting near her, she was enjoying herself and singing along as well. Which specific photos are you referring to where she looked "bored". Please give us the links.

As to "tall and wide bodyguard blocked a few fans' view of the whole concert", how do you know that? Were you there? Again, based on the posts from fans who were actually there, no one complained about that. In fact,the only posts I have read was about an ANNOYING FAN who was standing and waving his arms about and blocking another fan's view for most of the night.

isitoveryet said...

Oh you know of people that were there too? I was told that the bunnies/Kidman's fans were the biggest pain in the arses leaning in and pushing their way onto fans that unfortunately were stuck by her. They were there for the real show - the concert - not the "correct image" show! It sounds like her fans were nothing but pests when it came to trying to get her picture taken. People had to finally move they were so irritated with the interruptions!

Sonora_Melody said...

"i have my own elliptical at home, and trust me.....it's WAY different than a spin class. assuming it was the usual spin class she did, those things are KILLERS....you can set an elliptical at any resistance"

And you don't think a spin machine can be adjusted to different resistance levels? Think again!

Any spin class instructors would remind their students to go at a pace that's comfortable for them. While it may be "KILLER" to some, it can also be toned down by other participants. Since none of you were in the same class as Nicole, how in the world would you know what intensity level she was using?

Sonora_Melody said...

isitoveryet - yet again, you're making things up as you go. Show us the photo links of her looking "bored" and the links to the posts alleging that "the bunnies/Kidman's fans were leaning in and pushing their way onto fans that unfortunately were stuck by her."

It's now 3:32pm EDT. So please don't run to post some made-up stories elsewhere and bring them over here. I'll be checking the timestamp. :)

biteme said...

I have been to 2 shows that have had the duet and it was majorly hot! She is not a nilla wafer! At one show I got a very good look at her and she is a healthy size. I told myself that if my hubby was on tour with Carrie, I would be chaperoning that one.

isitoveryet said...

So ONLY your people should be believed - huh? I see how it works. The people I know that were there are in the boredom picture with your Queen. That's all the facts I need to know how close they were to the Queen.

Sonora_Melody said...

isitoveryet - still waiting for the photo links.


"biteme said...

Sounds like you're also slandering Carrie that she might be a party to an adulerous affair?

isitoveryet said...

Oh, and for your information sonora, there are some people that go to concerts that don't go on private or public message boards and report their reviews/pictures of concerts. So just because YOU didn't read it on a board somewhere doesn't mean it didn't happen!

doublewide said...

i said i could be wrong! geeeeez louise can you guys not keep from jumping on everybody???? very few things on this blog can be PROVEN....it's a blog for cryin out loud. speculation is the name of the game. what do you not get about that??? add something to the mix, instead of just jumping on the skeptics.

i try to be half-way polite and where does it get me?

isitoveryet said...

Oh, I'm sure you have seen the pic already sonora and are worshipping it hourly. I have gone to many Keith concerts with my sisters and three friends, and none of them belong to any type of a board, so that tells you that you aren't getting every fans' experience just because you read a fans' board.

Sonora_Melody said...

"isitoveryet said...

No, I haven't seen ANY photo of her looking "bored". So, please tell us where we can find one.

isitoveryet said...

Whatever!

White Trash said...

Wow, you obviously didn't read and see the reviews and pictures I saw of Nicole. Yeah, I have to agree she looked a big haggered, but several and I mean several people said she was singing at the top of her lungs to most of the songs.

Keep plugging away at your vile attempt to discredit her...maybe one day you'll get someone other than the 5 or so skeptics here to agree with you.

isitoveryet said...

How come none of the pictures show her singing?

Imahick said...

I heard from a person who was there, that many NK fans were trying so hard to get a picture that one man who was within 3 seats of NK had to move. People were actually trying to crawl between his legs to get a picture of her. He was very annoyed, embarassed and distracted. I have no reason not to believe this.

I have seen four pictures of NK at the Anaheim show. Two showed pure boredom. She was solemn faced and not looking toward the stage. In one she was smiling but looking away from the stage, (perhaps talking to someone beside her) and one she was grabbing for confetti. That was the only one in which she showed any interest ... and it was for the confetti. But it beat a picture I saw of her at a show in 2006, where she had ear plugs in and looked entirely miserable. I didn't see her singing along...but hey, if her supporters say she did, she must have, right?

As far as Carrie...she looked great. She's a gorgeous girl ... and I'm sure most men would concur. biteme was stating a fact and making a tongue in cheek comment ... why, senora, would you suggest anyone was "slandering" Carrie. That's a ridiculous statement and totally unfounded.

The point about the eliptical machine is that it is easy to modify the intensity of the work out. Swimming is also a reasonable way to stay in shape while pregnant. Halle didn't train for 3 hours a day. She did 20-30 min. workouts, according to a few articles I read. She looked healthy and absolutely like she was comfortable with her pregnancy.

NK looks anything BUT comfortable ... she looks like she's either posing (and pushing out her stomach) or she's distressed by the pictures.

As far as the exercise, i think what most people find disturbing is that NK has been photographed going to or coming from the gym frequently and some of the pictures showed an exhausted and haggard NK. She was definitely jogging in the pictures I saw...and that is not the best exercise for a woman who is pregnant. Yes...some people jog throughout their pregnancy, but there are better ways of maintaining your fitness.

You can justify her actions til the cows come home, and say she's just doing the normal amount of exercise as recommended to pregnant women anywhere, but most objective observers who have followed the media would see that it appears to be an obsession with her. The media has certainly picked it up.

From her own mouth, she has had a complicated obstetrical history. Her age adds to the risk factor. Her past eating disorder (possibly ongoing) is another factor to consider. Of all people, you'd think that NK would modify her exercise regime to a more moderate one, given her condition. Instead, it seems to be more strenuous.

We will never agree about this. NK's supporters will support ANYTHING that she does. Those who aren't supporters will have to see extensive evidence that she isn't the arrogant, controlling, manipulative, cold woman that we believe her to be. It's as simple as that.

In case the "Clooney for godfather" blanket story release (It's everywhere today - must have made some calls over the weekend to get it picked up by more outlets) doesn't distract us from the Assults maybe this "Dr visit photo" will. Good little hubby goes with the little woman to make sure all that flying didn't hurt the wee one. Nice touch - the white "purity" dress that billows in the breeze.

"...i try to be half-way polite and where does it get me?"

Well, you know doublewide... they have signs at "Jellystone" national park - "DONT FEED THE BEARS!" It'll only keep the pests coming back for more...

And at this point, another kidman photo op is staler that her last movie...uh.... the one everyones forgotten already. Urban's career is in a downward spiral, just like his latest cd, G-Hits, and kidman is public ridicule red meat. The laughing stock she's becoming over her ridiculous baby bump and the shambles that team kidman is in, isnt going to sell any more movie tickets that she usually gets... and her usual is typically failure. And its not going to get any better than when she was supposedly at her height of popularity. A few examples? Moulin Rouge grossed 57 mill.... The Others- 96mil... Birthday Girl -5 mil... The Hours-41 mil. Not exactly a huge blockbuster performer, more like mediocre. And this was supposedly her "prime"!

isitoveryet said...

I saw him back in February of 06. She was there and in the soundbooth not very far from me. That was when Keith flew out to the small satelite stage. The entire time he was on that stage, her head was down lookimg at the floor. I couldn't believe that she didn't look up at him once.

Imahick said...

That's exactly what I've heard ... she doesn't look at him or even look to be enjoying herself. But if she has been made aware of some of the criticism, she will make an effort for the cameras, which may be why there were sporadic reports that she was showing interest in Anaheim.

At the show where she was looking down the whole time, maybe she was nodding off? I can't believe anyone could sit the whole time, let alone NOT watch the show. But that just confirms everything I've heard.

The woman is as interested in his performances as she is in his career. In other words...she has NO interest. That's been proven out by her actions of the last four months.

maclen said...

Hey cj, just saw that pic you linked to... boy, isnt she just too CUTE for words? apparently she's waving to the pap she tipped off to the photo op. Funny, doesnt it look like urban is intentionally turning his back to the paps.. and cant you just see the look of disgust on his face? That tilt of his head is a real tipoff...

doublewide said...

Well, you know doublewide... they have signs at "Jellystone" national park - "DONT FEED THE BEARS!" It'll only keep the pests coming back for more...

LOL.....i'll take that under advisement!

doublewide said...

yeah....the whole back to the paps thing was interesting

CJ said...

I just thought he was holding the car door open for her to get in but I could be wrong. I've heard he doesn't like her staged photo ops. Add jet lag and he may well have been in a bad mood. I'm sure he got yelled at for not smiling on cue when the pic came out. She'll probably have to stage another photo op tomorrow to give him another change to "get it right".

Since I doubt no one at the "Dr Office" tipped the paps off (it would probably cost them their job) I'm sure the call came from Kampy Kidman. "Come show we're back in Oz and my bump grew 1 mm!"

That hat is hideous - but probably looks better than the hair underneath it.

isitoveryet said...

"Funny, doesnt it look like urban is intentionally turning his back to the paps.. and cant you just see the look of disgust on his face? That tilt of his head is a real tipoff..."

maclen - I couldn't agree with you more. That's the first thing I noticed when I saw the picture!

isitoveryet said...

cj - what you last said reminded me of something. Remember how miserable Urban looked in all of his pictures from the day the rumor hit that she was pregnant until the day before the news was confirmed. Then look at the big huge smile he had on his face the day they went for lunch - ya know the day when she had the mental breakdown at the restaurant that night. He never once looked happy up until that day. Again, a scheduled photo op and was told to be happy and in love because of their baby news!

doublewide said...

ha!! love your whole post CJ.....esp. the comment about the hat!

Berry Hill said...

I don't think he's holding open the door for her... unless the negative was flipped. They're in Australia so, Keith is standing near the driver's door. I think he's just waiting for her to get over herself.

doublewide said...

good lord BH, i never thot of that! you're right! very interesting

CJ said...

lol, "I think he's just waiting for her to get over herself." That's going to be a LONG wait.

CJ said...

Your right bh, and we know he wouldn't be holding the driver door open for her since she no longer drives herself - she said so in her testimony against Jamie last year. I wonder if she trusts Keith to drive her or if the bodyguard was just "out of the picture". Maybe still inside paying the doctor bill...

Urban Myths said...

I think he's opening the rear door for her. The driver is probably in the front, unseen. Too bad we only have one pic from THAT photo op. Probably the only one she approved from Wendy Day's daughter's shoot.

ok as her pregnancy continues her fashion sense has been disconnected for sure! Can almost read Keith's thought's "just get in the friggin car already! Notice how Nicole always has to display the wedding ring! The rock and her bump are almost the same size lol

well well well, looks like the BBP high-tailed it back to oz for a "barefoot and pregnant" photo op.

keith looks happy....not. she just gets more pitiful and transparent by the day. another virginal white dress for the big event.

this is on lainey's site if you care to take a gander. oh, of course there is a pic of her little bump....with the wind blowing just so....

the happy family together, non?

Lisa said...

oh but that was so fake. She does that to make herself look like a victim. They looked like a comical Bonnie & Clyde trying to steal a bag of cheetos from a gas station.

Sorry, thought it was something new.

I thought the SAME thing about the wind when I saw the pic.

Shame Keith couldn't put a pair of shorts on for the beach stroll.

isitoveryet said...

Staged photo op - Keith on the beach with boots and jeans on - don't think so!

isitoveryet said...

Compared these beach pics with the white dress at Target pic - what do you think?

doublewide said...

and isn't it very interesting that in the beach pics, keith isn't carrying any of her junk? she is carrying it all.

he looks unhappy and irritated.

yep, he was summoned alright...no beach attire for him.

I just thought he was holding the car door open for her to get in but I could be wrong. I've heard he doesn't like her staged photo ops. Add jet lag and he may well have been in a bad mood. I'm sure he got yelled at for not smiling on cue when the pic came out. She'll probably have to stage another photo op tomorrow to give him another change to "get it right".
----------------------------------

BINGO! Now we have the lovely beach pics today.
Keith looks so uncomfortable. The one pic where she has the big floppy hat on and has her head turned just so, cracks me up! Yeah her lips are huge again. Okay.....why is she wearing a jacket/shirt, and walking barefoot? Her shoulders are cold and her feet are hot? HA HA HA! Just so predicable and laughable.

Lisa said...

also... what's with being the same height all of a sudden?? Keith is a short dude. In her running pics, she looks over 6ft. I still think they cut these pics up & "repair" them according to her standards before they are released. That's why they always look so different than the candids.

I think kidman looks pregnant in the Target picture but she sure doesn't look preggers to me while walking the beach-barefoot (eyerolling here) and wearing a sweater and carrying a denim jacket. And she's not on the sand either but on the concrete? Whatever...

She wasn't pregnant in 2006 in her virginal white sun dress and her "bump" was bigger.

The Kidman's go to Nashville Target in July 2006

In the last pic, I swear it looks as if KU has been slapped! Look at his check. Maybe it's just sun burn? He does not look happy at all.

CJ said...

Oh for pete's sakes! Two white dresses and two hideous hats for two unbelievable photo shoots in one day. RIDICULOUS! I thought the dress was the same at first, but it's not. The beach is much shorter than the kneww length at the dr visit. She sure made sure to tuck that short dress between her legs to show off her bump for the camera. Keith doesn't look like a happy camper. He owns flip flops - I've seen them. Who wears boots to the beach?!? You know what that means - another photo op coming soon so maybe the photog can catch the 5 seconds Keith doesn't look angry/unhappy/miserable on film.

CJ said...

kumusicfan, he might have been slapped and told to "perform well for the camera or else!". NK really can't stand much more bad press - and her hubby looking unhappy by her side is not good press. KU said in an interview once "My wife doesn't hit me but...". In my experience, when a person says "My spouse doesn't hit me" most of the time they really are being beaten. It's one of those "red flags of abuse" you're taught to look for. IMO, I think being required to make international commercial flights every other week is abuse too. Unfortunately, until Keith sees that and decides to stop letting her get away with such behavior the cycle will continue.

kumusicfan said...

It's most likely the way the sun is shining on his check. I just thought it looks awful red. Surely KU would not subject himself to that kind of treatment. He has such beautiful skin.

biteme said...

"Sounds like you're also slandering Carrie that she might be a party to an adulerous affair?"

What I meant was that she is a hotty plus I was just kidding. If you were there you would how could you not look at Carrie, she is not a little girl. She is a 25 year adult.

biteme said...

"As far as Carrie...she looked great. She's a gorgeous girl ... and I'm sure most men would concur. biteme was stating a fact and making a tongue in cheek comment ... why, senora, would you suggest anyone was "slandering" Carrie. That's a ridiculous statement and totally unfounded."

Thank you imahick. You actually got it.

Berry Hill said...

Carrie gets something Keith used to want very much:

Carrie Underwood will soon be joining
the Grand Ole Opry family.

Randy Travis extended the invite, after
surprising her onstage during her sold out show this past Saturday
at the Grand Ole Opry. She jokingly said "Let me think about it,"
before immediately responding "yes!" as she wiped tears from her
eyes. Underwood will be formally inducted on Saturday, May 10th.
Underwood made her Grand Ole Opry debut on June 10th, 2005, just
two weeks after winning "American Idol."

isitoveryet said...

Hail, hail your Queen - you'll be visiting her in jail soon!

realitycheck said...

Carrie's induction to the Opry is a joke. Its not based on merit but popularity. It used to mean alot more when artists get inducted. You should be around alot longer than Carrie to get this honor. I can think of a long list of artists who deserve it more than her. And remember, George Strait, King George, isnt even a member. It shows how screwed up the process really is.

As for the beach pictures, Nicole and Keith look great. She wasnt trying to get a barefoot and pregnant pic. Or to even out their heights. Her sandals are flats. And I found a pic of someone else barefoot on the concrete. It would only be in the 70's over there, not exactly burning hot.

We wont be seeing Nicole in jail. How funny it is we only have one side of the story and the paps are to be believed on every little detail???

notachance said...

Interesting read. I just don't think NK will come under any scrutiny - she's teflon coated for some reason.

----

As for Carrie being invited to join the Opry - why should that bother Keith? He hasn't shown ANY interest in being a part of that institution for a long time. He's made his intentions very clear - he doesn't want to be tied to a contract with the Opry. Not sayin' I agree with that choice.

doublewide said...

is there one pic on the beach that keith is actually smiling in?

did i miss it?

CJ said...

16 pics on Gossip Girls plus 3 elsewhere. If he's smiling anywhere it's in the shots where he's turned away from the camera. It's almost like he wants the photogs to think he's angry. Maybe he'll be the next to "attack". These things come in threes don't they?

Imahick said...

No...there are no pictures of Keith smiling at the beach. He is not a happy looking man. He is not an excited looking father to be. He is wearing jeans and his boots at the beach, while sitting in the sand. To me, he looks ticked off. I personally think he was not prepared for a full PR campaign at Bondi Beach, and is less than thrilled.

As far as the info about NK holding the stollen camera while the trainer kicked the paparazzi ... I guess we'll see when the police complete their investigation. I think the reason it's fairly quiet is because Kidman's PR machine is spinning very quickly behind the scenes to try to keep this under wraps, to try to divert attention away from this story (Doctor's visit in all virginal white; romantic walk on the beach again in white..) while the police are investigating. Time will tell.

If this is true, she is an accessory to the assault and theft. It's reprehensible.

Up til the information about NK actually witnessing the first assault, I was willing to sit back and blame this all on the body guard. Clearly NK not only knew about it but condoned violent action. That actually surprises me.

I always felt she was arrogant and snooty. I believed her to be manipulative..that's well documented by numerous sources. But I didn't really think she'd be a party to an assault...no matter if she was frustrated with the paps or not. For a woman who preaches non-violence, it's hugely hypocritical.

maclen said...

Yeah another day, another pointless photo op... See, she has her goons beat up on the paparatz in the states, because she is finished in the states...no one could care less about her or her movies in the states...$70 paltry million for her Tin Compass... but over in Oz, its "tip toe throught the tulips", a sexegenarian in a silk dress waving and smiling at the paps"... because everything left of her career rides on "Australia" doing well at least in Oz. Yeah, the dimbulbs will be so impressed with its Aussie box office gross! So she stages another pathetic photo op with her live in manequin...I'd swear that was a cardboard cut out of urban.

realitycheck said...

Its hilarious that the skeptihaters think Nicole is trying to project a virginal image by wearing a white dress while pregnant.

LMAO!

music said...

Not literally virginal but as a way of imparting a sense of innocence. Wearing white as a PR move to look pure and incapable of participating in any wrong-doing. You know bad guys wear black in the movies and good guys wear white.

realitycheck said...

Yeah i know about the movies but she's worn them before she was even pregnant. Its a silly theory.

ANOTHER LIE EXPOSED:


Washington , Mar 18 (ANI):

Hollywood actor George Clooneys representative has slammed rumours that the The Perfect Storm star has been asked by Nicole Kidman to act as her childs godfather.

Reports had claimed that Kidman saw her The Peacemaker co-star as the ideal godfather material and was determined to get him to step into the role.

However, Clooney’s long-standing representative Stan Rosenfield cleared the dust and has laughed off the claims, stating Kidman has not asked the actor to be the child’s religious guide.


--Notice it's Clooney's spokesperson correcting the lie-- not Wendy Day or Catherine Olim.
