Why Won't They Leave the Country Already?

Baby watch third trimester.....

So the fetus is still in utero and Kidman is still pimping the bump and Keith is telling the faithful that the money they spent on the July shows with Chesney was kind of wasted because he will be on paternity leave. Tom and his children went to a soccer game in LA, and Keith and Nicole are still in the country. Its midweek, and boy are we tired.

According to the fan site that worships Nicole Kidman some pesky bloggers saw Kidman and Keith at dinner on Monday evening. Now I really don't care about this news, except that I am using it here to discuss something else. Where, oh where, do these damn bloggers come from? More importantly, why does that site always have some kind of blogging from some obscure someone’s Myspace page? My goodness is there someone foxy enough over there that they monitor the entire internet 24/7? I think its not too far to speculate that the site is not only funded by the object of the worship but that they are fed a lot of information from the said object’s PR crew. Once you realize that, the trust is gone. It’s obvious that they want the Kidman fan or unsuspecting Keith fan to believe the crap they dish out. A skeptic knows better. So the next time Betty Jean the hairdresser and Cal the maintenance man are leaving the Piggly Wiggly and are holding the door for Kidman and Keith and run to the INTERNET and post it on their “It's our life we know you want to know more” page, and it shows up on the Nicolekidmanourworshipwench fan site be a bit questioning. Really, do question it.

Like Waldo, many are wondering where the little fetus will emerge from the womb. Some believe it will be wherever the surrogate is and Keith and Kidman are playing a guessing game so that the overeager press can't speculate about the whys that we know will come after the birth. Why does Nicole look so good? Why does the baby not look so newborn? Why does the baby not resemble either parent? These questions will be asked. But Kidman will keep all those icky personal questions at bay. If she is indeed pregnant, at 41 it’s going to be tough for her. Perhaps a C-section is already scheduled. But where and who will do it? She has been spotted at an OB/GYN in Nashville. And there have been a number of stories about her and Keith going to the doctors in Sydney. Of course it was interesting that when Keith was over there and interviewed on the radio, when asked about the ultrasound and other questions an involved father-to-be would know, Keith acted like he hadn't a clue about the exam at all. Makes one wonder. Also makes one wonder who was in the car the day the photographers got beat up? Some are whispering that the surrogate was in that car. I said some, not all, but some. So where is the fetus going to emerge? I think perhaps she will be born in LA; I don't know why. It won’t be Sydney because it would be good for the big epic movie, but maybe Kidman has already written the epic off like so many in the know already have. Wherever it is they won't be in the hospital for long nor will that kid stay in any country for long. The child is already an American based on Kidman and her duel citizenship so no worries if she isn't born over here. But who knows, so we will stay tuned.

As for when the baby will make her appearance? Keith is telling people he is taking July off. Too bad, I was looking forward to seeing him with Kenny that month and of course he does need the exposure for the career. What he will get is the personal life exposed. I think he can do both. Play the shows and pimp the family. C'mon Keith - sit at the piano and sing your lullaby. Don't do it in the Nashville mansion but do it in front of 30,000 people. You have whored out your personal life for the last three years why not the baabee? Keith reconsider those tour dates. Hell, you just might need to get away from all that family.

If you were thinking just because Keith isn't out there touring that we are going to go away: forget it! There is so much out there to talk about its hard not to write a blog every hour. But don't worry we won't. That might make some of you who have a better grip on "reality" explode!

" Betty Jean the hairdresser and Cal the maintenance man "

Perhaps only a true skeptic, or the guilty at heart will know to what this is referring but I personally found it hilarious!!

I also find it telling that Nicole Kidman is finally in the US, for the last concert of the tour and appears to be staying now that the touring is OVER! On her set, her waterboy toted along several times. But his entire 100+ shows, and she went to what? TWO???? (and through one of which she SLEPT) She couldn't travel before in her "delicate condition" but all of a sudden she has a Unifem dinner at which to promote herself and poof - she's in the US?! Sadly, Keith flew back and forth every two weeks to be with her and she stayed put the entire time. Yet, supposedly in her THIRD trimester, she's all of a sudden "undelicate" enough to travel here, coincidently after the tour wraps up? This has always been and will always be about this kid. She no more than supports him or his career than I do my dead fish's. I think she will have the baby here. She likes to think she's the "Queen of OZ". She got married there - that was the plan - to show them it is her "homeland". But I think the baby will be born here.

I am no means disagreeing with you on the subject of that NKU board. I think there are hoards of worshipers who spend every waking hour scanning the internet for positive fluff on the kidmans, but you can't make a statement like that without agreeing with me that their are just as many skeptics out there doing the same thing, an example and that is just a few...

Betty Jean and Cal - PRICELESS!

Kidman will milk being at his last concert for a long time. WOW! Two whole concerts in the US. June Cleaver move over - Nicole Kidman just took your Wife (soon to be Mother) of the Century Award away from you.

It won't be long - he'll have another breakdown with her.

Tara said...

I for one was glad that Kidman didn't show at more shows. Let's count our blessings on that one.
As for looking for articles somehow for skeptics they just fall into our laps...
I agree I think Keith should keep the professional commitments he has made its not like they won't have a staff to cater to the babies needs.

notachance said...

It's quite possible that early in the pregnancy she was experiencing bad morning sickness and now that that's not an issue she's much more visible. Just sayin'.....

doublewide said...

well she didn't have any problem with intense exercise in that first trimester, now did she?

kidman PR machine with it's nose to the grindstone. LOOK AT ME, I LIVE IN NASHVILLE!

the UM blog is up for yet another award! this is one hoppin place.

betty jean and cal - hee

-----------------------------------
Well, one can only hope, being that she's made Keith and the rest of us SICK for the past 2 1/2 years!

isitoveryet said...

She still managed to go out to a restaurant for every meal during her first trimester. If she was so ill, why didn't they eat in?

And seriously, who the hell is she? Every other pregnant woman has to live with morning sickness. I bet there are plenty of pregnant women suffering from morning sickness who still get on a plane for their job, vacation or whatever, and especially to go be with their husband!

notachance said...

Yet another attempt by skeptics to sit in judgement of people's lives that they really know nothing about. This blog hashes, rehashes, etc., etc., etc. until the hash ain't no more.

Today we're back to the "I Hate NK" venom that show's the posters character more than anything else.

At least NK's Forehead has something interesting to write about....

Actually, I have not been on any site that had anything to do with KU for over 2 1/2 years. The only ones I was really aware of was MV & KUFans which I have stayed away from because mostly what you read over there is too much Rainbow Bright fluff. I get those e-mails from Yahoo, you know the kind you get when an artist, health condition,news story, etc is in the news. I hardly ever even look at ones about KU any more, because usually I have already heard it from inside sources or talk of it here (Nashville), before it is ever in the news. But for some reason in the last few weeks I clicked on one of the Yahoo things in my e-mail about KU, then next thing you know I am over at MV and found this web site from a post over there. You know the one where someone posted something about this site & the link...The one that only stayed on there a few days , then was deleted. Until I saw that post on the MV site, I never knew there were any sites like this. Sites that you can say what you think. The only sites I knew existed were the all sunshine & rainbows type ones.

I actually found the 2 articles I posted from one of the links provided here, you know the ones that are in green to the right of the blogs on this site. The WalMart ad for the Golden Compass was sent to me via a Walmart ad e-mail (which I did not search for, it came to me). The other 2 links (the ones that came from one of the links on this site) I posted were not about KU or NK, just about the fact that celebrities actually call the paps to control the pics & press that they get. If you actually take time to read the articles you will see they are from reputable sources, one from the Wall Street Journal & the other from New Millenium PR. (I guess others know better than these 2 reputable, established sources).

All 3 links provided came from a link that was provided to the right of these blogs & the other from my e-mail. I didn't have to do any searching and it only took a few mintes to read! You can put me in the Skeptic category all you want (I work in the music biz, I actually get to witness & hear the truth, not the bulls**t PR that is in the news)so I have an EXCELLANT reason to be a skeptic. As far as you singling me out for being the one skeptic that spends hours on the internet searching for negative fluff or any fluff for that matter on KUNK, you couldn't be more wrong...They were all 3, pretty much right in front of my face.

So, if you are trying to make your case that both sides spend a lot of time searching for fluff on KUNK & using me as an example, you couldn't be more wrong!!

zoe said...

For any of you that truly believe the wonderful crap that is spewed about Kidman or any other celeb, the 2 links I previously posted were on that subject. They are about celebs controlling their press and photo ops, by actually contacting them to be at a certain place at a certain time. They are actually from reputable sources, the Wall Street Journal & New Millenium PR.

zoe said...

By the way Whitetrash, I wasn't meaning to attack you & I am sorry if I came off that way. I just wanted to let you know, that I didn't have to search for any of those sources, they basically just fell in my lap.

Yeah, that is true, doublewide, excellent point...and interesting after that excercise bingeing was highlighted here, she then wants it known that she not only has morning sickness, but "severe" morning sickness!
...this is a little off topic.... but, another new rumor is kidman may be considering doing a Dusty springfield bio pic. If true, with this and the valerie plame bio pic, kidman may be desperately trying to Oscar harvest with the bio pics... which makes me wonder...again... about the previous 6 to 7 , and most definately that 3 pic deal with Fox...I would say this is an indication that kidman's failed career has caused all those previous possible film roles to evaperate or simply fizzled from neglect. Kidman producing a film? Only in her dreams...which is where they actually existed! So you may as well forget the monroe remake, the supernatural remake, the broadway adaption, the watts film...those Compass non-sequels...etc... kidman is trolling for any little role she can get some awards attention... the blockbusters and the hopefull sequels have now become a distant memory.

Tara said...

Zoe I enjoy your postings and no one ever has to defend what they are saying here. Some seem very uncomfortable when people know information that stops their goals..
I would say wonder why but its too obvious.

maclen said...

...and I wouldnt be surprised to hear this latest film rumor to be a no go...whether it true... but most likely because she will not get it!

double nope for me. She just needs to learn her place. At this point she cuts her nose off her own face every time she posts. Nothing wrong with her presence...she just needs to admit where she is placing her own feet.

Dont wear sandals and say you hate shoes... if you know what I mean

biteme said...

Does anybody have a link about Keith taking July off?

Imahick said...

I read a BSE post on MV. Keith was asked by a fan whether he was taking paternity leave. He said yes, and that he would likely miss a couple of the July shows with Kenny. One of the fans said something about hoping it wasn't July 5th and he said he'd talk to his wife about the date (laughing).

That post is on MV in the thread about the tour, I think. I don't have a link of the top of my head.

I can understand him wanting to be there when his first child is born. (If the surrogate wants him in the delivery room...LOL)But why not just cancel the shows and not lead people to buy tickets and be disappointed? I think it's disrespectful to the fans, personally. Just say you aren't going to do it and let Kenny advertise who is going to be there. Period.

realitycheck said...

Umyths, you underestimate the supporters. tinroof was astute enough to see what i also saw...it was no coincidence that my name was referred to at the end of this blog. Once again Umyths wants to maintain the appearance of welcoming all viewpoints but i see though the facade. And the most
hilarious thing was the claim some of us thought you were taking a hiatus because Keith was no longer on tour! Why in the world would we ever think that??!! Nicole is the raison d'etre for this blog. If Keith and the baby are bashed in the process, well they're just collateral damage.

So now that we've got that out of the way...


"So the fetus is still in utero and Kidman is still pimping the bump and Keith is telling the faithful that the money they spent on the July shows with Chesney was kind of wasted because he will be on paternity leave."

I would venture to say most of his fans who are going to the show are fully aware of the pregnancy. He's said the baby is due in July. You take your chances. Nothing is guaranteed in this world. No one who is going to a stadium show is there for the music. Most likely you wont even be able to see the real Keith, just his image on screen. If you're not aware of all of that, then i don't see any need for anyone to apologize. The birth of a baby is more important than a stadium show.





"According to the fan site that worships Nicole Kidman some pesky bloggers saw Kidman and Keith at dinner on Monday evening. Now I really don't care about this news, except that I am using it here to discuss something else. Where, oh where, do these damn bloggers come from? More importantly, why does that site always have some kind of blogging from some obscure someone’s Myspace page? My goodness is there someone foxy enough over there that they monitor the entire internet 24/7? I think its not too far to speculate that the site is not only funded by the object of the worship but that they are fed a lot of information from the said object’s PR crew. Once you realize that, the trust is gone. It’s obvious that they want the Kidman fan or unsuspecting Keith fan to believe the crap they dish out."

Well Umyths i would have thought you would be well aware of Google Alerts, since Google owns Blogger, and the fact that they send emails out any time a search term is found on the internet. I'm sure its not the only service of its kind. Only problem is if your search term is "Will Smith" you'll get tidbits about Will Smith, the actor, and Will Smith, the high schooler who won his basketball championship in Missouri. Its not discerning but it is effective in finding every little mention of a celebrity.

Lets also take a look at all the tabloids Umyths has accumulated. Who would spend money buying or spending time searching for tabloids of a celebrity they cant stand? And why give money to the people you claim are helping promote her alleged false image?

Lets also take a look at something I believe Umyths intentionally left out. Those forever faithful skeptics at the E! Board. They post links to any little tidbit on Nicole and Keith. Doesn't matter what the slant of the article is. If its not favorable, the writer is right on the money and its proof the tide is turning. Only problem is here folks, negative opinion has been written about actresses since newspapers were printed, and Nicole's had her fair share long before she met Keith. If the tidbit is positive, then its a plant from Wendy or Catherine, and its the butt of jokes for the next couple of pages of the thread. None of the positive stories are just made up by tabs and none of the negative ones are false. Do all those little morsels of info just fall into their laps from the heavens above? I'll let you decide for yourself.

And lets not forget, hard core skeptics here posting link upon link of photos they've collected. They've spent their time finding and posting the pics. Your not going to tell me its to share out of the kindness of their hearts.


"So the next time Betty Jean the hairdresser and Cal the maintenance man are leaving the Piggly Wiggly and are holding the door for Kidman and Keith and run to the INTERNET and post it on their “It's our life we know you want to know more” page, and it shows up on the Nicolekidmanourworshipwench fan site be a bit questioning. Really, do question it."

inittowinit and Umyths, make no mistake, anyone who regularly posts or reads at the positive sites, knows exactly who is being referred to here. They were KU fans before NK was in the picture. What i question is that every acquaintance of every skeptic dislikes Nicole too. At least thats what they are implying their posts.


Like Waldo, many are wondering where the little fetus will emerge from the womb.

Its no coincidence the word "fetus" is trotted out again. Umyths, a fetus doesnt emerge, a baby does.



Why does the baby not look so newborn? Why does the baby not resemble either parent? These questions will be asked.

Of course they will...by the skeptics here and on the other bashing sites. But in the real world where people have a grip on reality, that wont happen. If the baby was a preemie some here would say it looks a few weeks old. Or that a second surrogate was in line and had the baby early. Who knows what they'll come up with next. And it wouldn't surprise me based on some of the other ridiculous claims made here. BTW, most stars who don't look their best will do their darndest to lessen the scrutiny from the media about getting back into optimal shape. So you cant fault Nicole there. But then again she wont have 50 pounds to lose so i don't think she'll be doing much hiding anyway.




"But Kidman will keep all those icky personal questions at bay. If she is indeed pregnant, at 41 it’s going to be tough for her. Perhaps a C-section is already scheduled. But where and who will do it? She has been spotted at an OB/GYN in Nashville. And there have been a number of stories about her and Keith going to the doctors in Sydney. Of course it was interesting that when Keith was over there and interviewed on the radio, when asked about the ultrasound and other questions an involved father-to-be would know, Keith acted like he hadn't a clue about the exam at all. Makes one wonder."

I think he's very astute and not revealing details about doctor visits that are none of the public's business.

Just like i called it, Nicole and Keith are bashed for being in Nashville, just after they were bashed for not being in Nashville. Sorry skeptics but you cant have your cake and eat it it too. This is what's fundamentally wrong with the skeptics argument. And its becoming clearer and clearer as time passes.



"Also makes one wonder who was in the car the day the photographers got beat up?"

Isnt that just another day in Skepticville? Wonder about anything to the point of insanity. Slyly insert another rumor that doesnt really have anything to do with the topic at hand. Umyths writers must post at the Awful Truth too. Because they cant keep topics straight over there either.

Like i overheard in conversation today about the presidential election, if people want to find something they will. I believe the same applies here. Its the same wondering that gets recycled over and over.



"It won’t be Sydney because it would be good for the big epic movie, but maybe Kidman has already written the epic off like so many in the know already have"

Those in the know wouldn't say that. A book is coming out on the movie and there are weekly podcasts dealing with individual elements of moviemaking for this film. Studios just let a movie hang, release the thing during slow season, and pray it makes an okay profit on DVD. The reasons why filming was delayed were because of bad weather in Oz. Its not appearing at Cannes because the final edits are being done. Remember, this movie isn't coming out until mid-November. Umyths statement against "Australia" is here for a reason. To cause even more speculation and keep the skepticism alive. If you would like Umyths to post a blog detailing what is wrong with the film I'd be happy to read it. I highly doubt that you'd be able to provide any specific criticism other than Nicole Kidman is in the leading role.



"Wherever it is they won't be in the hospital for long"

Why would they stay long unless there are complications with Nicole and/or the baby? Who likes being in a hospital longer than necessary?




"As for when the baby will make her appearance? Keith is telling people he is taking July off. Too bad, I was looking forward to seeing him with Kenny that month and of course he does need the exposure for the career."

I don't think country fans who didn't like Keith before are going to be won over by stadium performances. Kenny didn't just jump into doing stadiums before he already had the recognition he could fill large arenas and do an adequate show in a large venue. I think Keith is doing it because it's fun and Kenny knows he can fill more seats. Kenny doesnt do stadium shows by himself and there's a reason for that.



What he will get is the personal life exposed. I think he can do both. Play the shows and pimp the family. C'mon Keith - sit at the piano and sing your lullaby. Don't do it in the Nashville mansion

Keith doesn't have a mansion but Alan Jackson does. I don't know why you keep getting them confused?



"but do it in front of 30,000 people. You have whored out your personal life for the last three years why not the baabee? Keith reconsider those tour dates. Hell, you just might need to get away from all that family."

We all know you want Keith to have a permanent vacation from the family. You'd have no trouble seeing Keith abandon a wife and child for the sake of his career. All i can say is thats shameful. And your bad Australian accent needs work.

realitycheck said...

lisa, i know exactly where i am. Just like the posters over at E! who dare to be positive know where they are.

maclen, Kidman has already produced a film and another one she's producing is in the works. As for the Dusty Springfield biopic, she stated in an interview last year she was a fan and would love to be in a movie about her.

And the Golden Compass sequels may still be made. From slashfilm.com

"“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.” - Producer Deborah Forte


Kidman is being portrayed as at the fringes, her career almost gone when in reality she's getting offered complex interesting roles even though she's hit 40. The skeptics just wish it was otherwise.

CJ said...

Actually it was Nic's MOM who said the baby was due in July "she thought". No official expected due date - or month for that matter - has been released by camp Kidman or Urbahn.

Nic has said since Jan "too private" when asked baby questions. Why isn't Keith saying the same instead of "I don't know what continent my child will be born on."? That's another one of those details (like where you will live after the wedding) that should be decided before you even get married or pregnant. If he really doesn't know heaven help him - he's going to need it.

Sonora, you haven't been missed, but please get your facts straight. It's "Kenny Chesney's Poets and Pirates Tour". Period.

isitoveryet said...

I believe the couple has never officially said when the baby was due. When asked in several interviews, Urban has said "sometime in the middle of summer". It wasn't until this BSE that he stated he might miss some shows in July. Okay, that could mean that she is due in June or July. I'm sure Miss High Maintenance will go for a scheduled c-section. If Urban will have to miss some shows, he should have made an announcement on MV to his fans telling him that. I am sure there are fans that bought tickets just because he would be there. Again, this is very disrespectful to his fans. With the way the economy is going, some people can't afford to waste money on a concert that they aren't interested in attending because their favorite artist bailed on them.

cricket said...

Well realaitycheck of course Kidman won't have 50 pounds to lose.She'll just untie her rubber belly and strut out of the hospital in a bikini on her way to do a nude scene for a movie and all the KIdman Krazies over at NKU will gush how amazing she looks,and how beautiful and no one will notice she forgot to collect the baby from the nursery.

Sonora_Melody said...

"Urban Myths said...

I don't give a @#$% whether you missed me or not.

YOU need to get your facts straight. Anyone going to the Ticketmaster site to buy tickets will know the show is billed as "Kenny Chesney and Leann Rimes : the Poets & Pirates Tour". Check it out: http://www.ticketmaster.com/search?tm_link=tm_header_search&keyword=kenny+chesney

At any rate, Keith's name is not mentioned. So, if he can't make it, there's no need to cancel the show.

Urban Myths said...

You made my point, Sonora.

Ticketmobster, the Monkeyville nemesis, is the only one billing it like that. Check your facts.

getaholdofurself said...

it's a great line up, but leann isn't the big draw. if she were, her image would be next to kenny's in place of keith's.

i have to agree with the skeptics' sentiment on this one. i believe it was announced in december that keith would be joining kenny at several stadium shows tba. the pregnancy was announced in january. it's safe to say that keith knew well before the tickets went on sale that he wouldn't be able to make some of the shows.

threatened by RC.. I don't think so. Just because they have an opinion/view I don't agree with doesn't make her threatening.

RC..you talk about how some skeptics seem to spend wou waaaaaayyy to much time researching things. I can't imagine how much time you spend responding to some of these post. I really think you just like to argue. If we said the sky was blue you would say it was green. But that's cool. How you spend your time and what you believe is up to you just as how we spend our time and what we believe is up to us.

As far as the Stadium shows, Keith should have not signed on to do these shows because he knew the due date when these shows went on sale. Or maybe he didn't...lol

Imahick said...

Obviously, KENNY CHESNEY will not be cancelling HIS show if Keith is a no show. But many of Keith's fans have bought tickets to the shows that he was supposed to be in, and I think that he was, for them, the main reason for buying the tickets.

If he knew the baby was to arrive sometime in late June to mid-July, why not just withdraw from those shows and let the fans know, so that they don't spend $$ on a show in which Keith isn't going to perform. The shows were announced in December...and I think Keith didn't know there was a baby until Christmas time...and the shows were already planned at that point. But he could have pulled out prior to the pre-sales / sales. It's disrespectful to the fans to let his name stand and not intend to be there.

He has cancelled alot of shows in the last few years and that's one thing I've noticed. There is very little information provided to the fans.

I've seen other artists immediately apologize to fans (obviously if it's ill health, they can't help it, but it's common courtesy to say I'm really sorry to do this, but I truly can't go on because of....) for having cancelled a show. It was classy, respectful and showed a sincere consideration for the fan's commitment to the artist. It doesn't require a big "to do"...it's a matter of a simple statement and a sense that the artist is sorry for the inconvenience.

And face it, LeeAnn Rimes is not the major draw for this show. This is Kenny's show...and the rest of the artists are icing on the cake.

Just an observation from a newbie - but it looks to me like the reality of the situation is someone likes to read themselves in print almost as much as the tall pale one does.


Even if Keith didn't know before, he certainly knows now when the royal offspring is due. He should do the fans the courtesy of making a damn decision for once I(or ask her permission) and say which shows he won't make.

Just thought I'd post Keith's horoscope for today.

Today's Scorpio Horoscope: Apr 30, 2008
Today may be a tough one for you, dear Scorpio. It might seem like nothing is fitting into place. Could it be that you are trying to be someone that you are not? If things don't seem to be working out, don't press the issue. You are better off waiting for a time in which you feel more confident about who you are and where you are going. Meanwhile, pour yourself a cup of tea and relax. Releasing stress can clear up a great deal of energy for use in other things.

Welcome notaclue. We had heard reports of him "drinking at a bar after a show" early on in the CU leg of the tour but we were led to believe it was non-alcoholic drinking. If that is incorrect then reports of KU behavior consistent with right before he went into rehab in Oct 2006 may be even more accurate than originally believed.

notaclue said...

I questioned my friend because I didn't want to believe that he was drinking (this was when I still had on my rose colored glasses). She asked her relative that served him if he wasn't sure that it was a soft drink. His response was "no, he was drinking, I was there!" This waiter is a young college student, didn't even know who KU was until the night of the concert so he would have no reason to lie. I do know that this is the hotel that KU stayed in and where this young man works. Apparently, this was in the hotel bar, early morning hours, they were technically closed but they served KU. So KU was the only person in there besides this waiter. *If* NK is actually pregnant and due in July, this would have happened about the same time that she discovered that she was pregnant. I was a true blue KU fan until I heard this and it was such a disappointment because it made me realize that KU isn't what he appears to be, and it seems that NK is at the root of it.

Other when he trails after he, she is not with him much. Especially on tour. I know his mom used to love going out on parts of his tour, so it really saddens me that she really hasn't gone. Because it says to me, there are issues there. Like his family knows this marriage shouldn't be. And is distancing themselves a bit, because their son is old enough, he needs to learn on his own.

Just because a person marries, family don't have to step away. Clearly her family hasn't. I know as a parent, it would be hard to do and I'm sure his mom has to be a bit saddened by it all.

It does speak volumes how absent they've become.

His mom used to go on tour with him as his babysitter, to make sure he did not abuse drugs and alcohol again after he went through rehab the first time.

I didn't know RC got a trademark, copyright or whatever for the word "reality".

Welcome notaclue.

I too have heard that he has been hitting the bottle this tour for "voice reasons" - *wink wink*!

isitoveryet said...

"His mom used to go on tour with him as his babysitter, to make sure he did not abuse drugs and alcohol again after he went through rehab the first time."

WRONG! I have seen pictures of Keith in a bar with his Mum beside him as he is doing shots!

That was the story where it was a 60 year-old woman next to him. She asked him if she could buy him a drink. He said he doesn't drink. Of course he did, for all he knows, she could have been a fan and knew he had a drinking problem or even a reporter who was spying on him.

notachance said...

Welcome notaclue - your name speaks volumes!!!

Trotting out the "he's drinking again" early in the CU tour - nice touch. Funny how none of the other residents of Skepticville (thanks RC) found that little nugget before. They must be slacking in their investigative efforts. Guess when nothing else is sticking to the wall that they've thrown against it it's time to pull that crap out again.

As for the stadium shows - I would venture to say that by the time those were announced in December they had been in the works for quite some time. And Keith just might be holding back on exactly what shows he won't be at because he may plan on doing all that he possibly can. It's very possible that NK is going "au-naturale" for the birth and when it happens, it happens so....

Pessimist - Optimomist. I choose the latter.

isitoveryet said...

Sorry, the drinking at the bar story has been known and discussed a long time ago in "Skepticville". Kidman going "au-naturale" - yea right! Although she has probably become used to the pain of injections - Lawd knows she has had plenty in her face. But she will have a c-section and have them perform a tummy tuck all at once. Although by the looks of her tummy now, I'm not sure what she will need tucked by that time!

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

Last summer, he was CONFIRMED to be at a concert that I knew of. It's scheduled now for sometime in July I think and he isn't on the bill. Therefore, as of last summer, it appears there were no plans to make a baby.

Also, I knew about the Pittsburgh date LONG before it was ever announced. I knew Keith was going to be there and it had been confirmed. I also was told that the tickets would go ON SALE in early December - but they didn't. Keith's/Carrie's tour went on sale first. At first, I thought it may be that Keith agreed to do Kenny's show but wanted HIS tickets to go on sale first (before it was announced that he would evn be touring with Kenny). But then I realized that is stupid. Why would Kenny agree to hold back on his ticket sales to help Keith make an earlier profit? That doesn't make sense (unless he knew his tix would sell so well anyway and that waiting wouldn't matter?) The ONLY thing I could think of was that the tickets didn't go on sale early in Dec. because of the baby. Perhaps Keith had just learned she was pregnant and had to hold out on the ticket sales to deterimine which shows he could attend? I don't know. But honestly, I think the ONLY reason they aren't announcing the baby's date is because that is EXACTLY the way TomKat handled it!!

or maybe he didnt want to drink with a 60 yr old woman. I doubt he would have said no if she were 19-25

hoho said...

Cricket - I peed myself
Notaclue - Welcome to the blog, it gets a little sticky in here sometimes but, it is oh so fun !!

I have said it before and I will say it again - there is something up. A co-worker of mine went to the Raleigh show as well (she likes Keith but he is not her fav) and when I returned to work on Mon the first words out of her mouth were "Ewww, he looks awful ! He looks like he is on drugs, he looks really bad." "He is not the same man I saw a few years ago, somethings up and it looks like marriage hasn't done him ANY good."
Now, I don't talk to her about my distain for Nicole Kidman. Those words were said without any "skeptic coaching" from me which is what all of you skeptic haters will say. But, she saw it and she isn't a really huge fan of his. She said she won't go see him live again, the magic's gone.

Lisa said...

I would like to say from my last comment.... "On 2nd thought, hes making a baby with a 60 yr old woman so who knows? o.O "

This link may be old news to many of you, but I found it absolutely addicting. It showed up not long ago on YouTube and I spent hours looking at all the old interviews.
What I found surprising, sad, yet hopeful there is a spark left, the humor KU uses in the interviews is great. He looks wonderful compared to how worn and tired he appears to look now. He appears happy and jokes a lot. Lot's of videos here and old interviews from pre-kidman days......what a change.

tbku has a wonderful collection of the old Keith.

White Trash said...

Zoe, I'm not directly attacking you either, you just happen to have the most recent links to articles here. I'm just trying to point out that it goes both ways...and it really does, otherwise this actual blog would never exist. Who or whomever writes this blogs gets the information somewhere. I would never assume they make things up (wink..wink) or actual facts just fall into their laps. They too, scan the net for the latest gossip on the kidmans, just as those bunnies do with positive fluff about them.

Really, I'm not so naive to believe celebrities don't contact the media or Nicole schedules photo ops, but the skeptics here act like they're the only celebs that do it, when in fact they're just 2 people out of thousands who manipulate the media, just as the media maniuplate them.

notachance said...

I have a friend that went to the Louisville show and thought he looked great. Point, counterpoint. Perception is in eye of the beholder.

Let's face it gals - he's 40 yrs old, lived a drinking & drugging lifestyle for many years, stands to reason the sands of time will take their toll at this stage of his life. He's aging just fine IMO and is looking like a MAN and not just a "guy" anymore. Can it be that you skeptics can't stomach Keith looking like a man? Men can change drastically from their 20's and early 30's when they actually grow into "manhood". Y'all keep harping about Gran, but Keith is the same age and what he really should start doing is STOP pandering to an age that doesn't exist for himself anymore. The reality is that his hairline is receding, he has wrinkles and his facial features are beginning to change with age. The day will come when the music just won't cut it for most of you because of that.

Don't claim to be such private people when you have the paps on your speed dial. You then call them to photograph you, and then you beat the crap out of them.

"Can it be that you skeptics can't stomach Keith looking like a man?"

I can't stand that she has turned him into Tom Cruise's twin. She doesn't want Keith Urban for a husband - she still wants Tom Cruise, so she can at least look at Tom when she goes home. We all know that Keith isn't a big fan of short hair. It wasn't his choice that his hair was cut for the Blue album.

Imahick said...

Keith doesn't look that manly to me anymore, sadly. NK has emasculated him. Like GQ says, he's P-whipped - top 20 in the world. That's not just the "skeptic haters" seeing that. That's a national / international publication, that has obviously seen exactly what we've been seeing.

I have heard two rumors now that he's been drinking. He looked bedraggled after the baby news was released in Jan ... not at all like I'd expect a new "father to be" to look. The walks on the beach told the whole story for me. There was no joy on that man's face...no joy during a walk on the beach with his beautiful beautiful princess who is carrying his child inside? There should have been a hint of happiness. Instead, I saw more than a hint of frustration and a man who looked ready to snap.

I hope that he isn't drinking and drugging again. I really had hoped he would stay clean & sober. But living the life he has been forced to live this last 18 months was alot for a man who was in treatment for 3 months for abuses...and I'm sure those go far beyond what we are aware of.

NK did absolutely NOTHING to assist him these last few months. I doubt she attends any ALANON meetings. She has done exactly what SHE wanted to do and he has been forced to cater to her career, her personal needs and her PR requirements.

Other than attending two shows here in the US (after saying she'd be sacrificing herself to tour with him...right), what has she done? Sorry...there is nothing redeeming about that woman. She is selfishness personified.

On the other hand, he is the author of his own misery. It's now in his court to find a way to happiness.

SettleDown said...

On his own, he can sometimes still look like a man. If the lighting is right, downright sexy.

But then we see him tethered to her (who the hell holds hands ALL the time past 16) and he suddenly looks like a scolded 8-yr old being led around by his granny.

Nothing manly about that at all.

music said...

I know that people change as they get older, but I agree that the changes in Keith seem excessive. It's like night and day looking at some of those clips from tbku's youtube site and comparing them to the current KU. Does he even know who he is anymore? Or like that horoscope says:
---------------
"Could it be that you are trying to be someone that you are not? If things don't seem to be working out, don't press the issue. You are better off waiting for a time in which you feel more confident about who you are and where you are going."
-----------------
Thanks for the horoscope kiki!

inittowinit said...

Look at photos of Keith pre-skank, within a three years span. Then look at photos of Keith since the skank, in a three- year span. He has aged more in the last three years than he did in the 10 years prior, IMO.

CJ said...

To answer the question "Why Won't They Leave the Country Already?":

1. Her timing is off. IE: She's in Oz most of a year then leaves and stays gone while her dad has heart surgery. So maybe they will head back to Oz right before the ACM awards in May.

2. Assuming they allow KU to attend the ACM's they are staying in the US for that. Heaven forbid SHE fly to Oz and back within a few weeks in her delicate condition. Sure, it's fine for Keith to do it commercial but even on a private jet it would be too difficult for the bbp. Since she doesn't have any red carpet events of her own coming up she is probably going through withdrawals and will insist on taking over Keith's - AGAIN - just like she did at the CMT awards.

3. Rumors are KU is having substance abuse issues again. Maybe he is quietly seeking help in the US before the arrival of the baby.

isitoveryet said...

Funny you should say that cj - I was thinking the same thing when it comes to #3. We have gone almost a week and no photos of the couple - strange, right? I'd like to hear what people would think if he went back into rehab right now - what would you think of the marriage now? Would you think it was a happy, healthy marriage for him?

cricket said...

I hope he's not using or drinking again,but I sure couldn't blame him if he is. I've never had a drug or drinking problem but force me to spend a prolonged amount of time with that whiney self absorbed plastic bitch I'd be snorting and drinking anything I could get my hands on.She could drive a Saint to drink.If not for all his COS training I doubt Tom Cruise could have stood the hag for as long as he did without becoming an addict. She's just toxic both at the box office and to any one unfortunate to be around her.

CJ said...

"We have gone almost a week and no photos of the couple - strange, right?"

That's actually a point against rehab since she used his last visit as a photo op. (Only she would take photogs to Betty Ford!) My guess is the US photogs don't drop what they are doing and cater to her every beck and call like Jamie and the Oz guys do. Since most Americans don't like her it isn't news so they don't go. KU might be news but not on an every day basis and since it has to be all about her...

If he is doing a "rehab refresher" right before the baby comes I wonder if 2 rehab stints in 18-19 months would be enough to wake KU up and realize he needs to make changes in his life pronto.

Keith's hair is receding..... NOT ! Get a grip people.
