Batten the Hatches...

There is a story running around that Kidman is yet again playing the sympathy card. This time about the two children that were acquired during her first marriage to her one true love; seems that they don't want to spend time with her and the new hubby. Wonder why?

Doesn't it say something that those two children don't want to spend time with her? Doesn't it say something that she is already putting a lot of pressure for the “child inside” to fulfill her fantasy of a family?

Keith said in an interview that she really wants to be a mother again. I guess I didn't really understand what he meant until now. Well, to be a mother again she had to be one in the first place and all indications are she really wasn't. These children were acquired for their father’s purposes. Just as Kidman was; although Kidman wasn't a child and knew the score. She knew what she was getting into but I do believe she loved the guy and wanted what he did.

So at 23, she became a mother. I guess she was too pampered and too indulged, and with her insecurity and paranoia she wasn't able to tap into that mothering vibe women get. Perhaps it’s because she had such a stiff and formal relationship with her own mother that she wasn't able to create the nurturing atmosphere that those children needed to have. They were simply props and the reality is they are actually human beings and have feelings and needs and desires and after awhile being a prop can get old, as does being around the one that treats you like that.

My question then is why does Kidman think that she is any better able to mother this baby that will be showing up soon?

Kidman in so many ways is a child herself. Her life is one series of arranged situations in which she plays a part. Be it a premiere or an awards show, going to dinner with the spouse or sitting backstage at a show when he’s performing. It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it means to be seen doing that. It’s something Kidman has been doing for years. I saw recently a story about her one true loveand his comeback to Hollywood and they showed footage over the years of him and Kidman on the red carpet. She acted the same way she does with Keith now. Putting her arms around his neck, acting coy and demure, smiling and making sure the camera people get a good angle; even arriving at the last minute. I guess Keith was too busy all those years making a name for himself to notice, but his wife is a fraud. She is not a good enough actress nor is she sincere enough to be believable and the sad thing is Keith may now be aware of how ill equipped she is to function in the real world that exists beyond the movie cameras and beyond the red carpet; but that little child isn't getting a chance. That child will be used as prop just as she uses her family, Keith's career, Keith, and her declining status as an A-lister to push an image - that while fulfilling her ego does little to make a difference. Keith Urban's child deserves better than Nicole Kidman for a mother. There we said what you all knew we would. Show us where we are wrong.

Yeah, this certainly sounds like a patented inept team kidman planted story. I wouldn't be that surprised that after years of trying to publicly kiss up to cruise and of course continue to milk the marriage, that now in her desperation she would even after 7 years delve into the tabloid world of petty bickering... whatever gets her the headlines she craves so much. After getting trumped by jolie a few weeks back she seems to be back into overdrive on the media leaks and manipulated photo ops... this one sounds to be right on par.

notachance said...

Well, this story is making the rounds of all the gossip sites.

I would have to agree with her kids though if they chose to not see her - they probably have no comfort level with her anymore. Who's at fault? I blame TC & COS. I think even if she lived down the street her ability to see them would be severely curtailed due to COS instruction they must go through. COS is their world as teenagers.

As for her being a good, caring mother? Well, I guess we'll get to see how that story turns out.

It's good that the kids don't want her anymore. Let her see how they felt when they were little and wanted their "Mommy" and she was way too busy with her career to pay any attention to them.Now that they are older and less messy she suddenly remembers that they exsist She probably wants a free babysitter for the new kid that's wht the sudden intrest in them all of a sudden.

I am waiting for the day her husband decides he doesn't want to be around her too.

Speaking of story plants... Perez claims they have info "from a close Kidman friend" that it is a boy. I wonder who leaked that info...

maclen said...

Boy there seems to be a cluster of rumors and stories... and denials flying around these days, isnt there? So, I'll just quote myself again...

Maclen said...
"After getting trumped by jolie a few weeks back she seems to be back into overdrive on the media leaks and manipulated photo ops..."

...we have... Is she or is she not posing nude for a magazine shoot? And we now have an official denial, inept team kidman is shocked and horrified at the idea of kidman posing nude! Next, she may or may not have bashed cruise over the kids she supposedly has co-custody... and she is powerless it seems to do a thing about it! BOO HOO!..poor little rich girl... Now hilton claims to have a inside source as to the sex of the kid. Having no immediate movie to shill must be grating on kidman's pathelogical need for attention and now she seems to be reduced to tabloid sources for the public tugs of war to pretend to be disputing against. Not that it'll do a thing for her next failure anyways... people were not interested in them last year, and they wont be interested this year.

Ever since the website was leaked here about the baby registry, you could just tell it was going to be a Boy.

Not that it IS, but I just remember seeing those baby items they picked out. It was more masculine than anything else.

Also, there was a google alert that her blondiebff bought several on that list. Even the Teddy Chest that Keith supposedly picked out.

Just addin' muh 2

You called it maclen!
How come "Mommy Dearest" comes to mind when I think of kidman as a mother?


And boohooo kidman, cry me a river.
You reap what you sow honey...

doublewide said...

maclen, did you see where she was spotted at a spa in the nashville area called belle meade i think.....getting a facial LOL (can that face even tolerate a facial?)

anyway brad s. reported she took her own robe to wear.....a tidbit the 2nd press release conveniently left out.

yep, that kidman PR machine is just crankin em out one after the other

ZOE said...

Belle Meade is an old money area of Nashville...

"You called it maclen!

Well she is transforming her face into that Dunaway makeup in that movie!
So I went over to perez hilton to check out his post on kidman having a boy... and boy if hilton isnt just so gosh darn polite and courtious toward kidman... Congrats to the orb and the mother to be? That's it? Now you know this was an official team kidman leak if hilton is going to be so amenable. Will this be another typical industry quid pro quo, as kidman is now cultivating the gossip tabloid circuit for more publicity outlets? Interesting to see from this time on if hilton is really gonna start playing ball.

thanks zoe! i gathered that when they printed the words (sniff sniff) after belle meade. hee

so maclen, what's with hilton being amenable????

No doublewide, I hadnt seen that one yet..so many leaks and photo ops being pelted out like wedding rice...(and kidman probably isnt aware that uncooked rice kills the pigeons and birds that so readily devour it) we'll soon be flooded out by the avalance of "staccato signals of constant information, a loose affiliation of millionares and billionaires and babies...she's certainly trying very hard to make herself tabloid fodder... but then as we all knew, that is all she has left.

doublewide said...
"so maclen, what's with hilton being amenable????"

I was just wondering if hilton was given a peace offering from the desperate team kidman with a little tip off in exchange for softer posts or for future tips for his site. Something I will certainly take into account in the future... wouldnt be the first time.

Urban Myths said...

Yep, maclen, Just Jared must have been a lot cheaper to buy off...

dang...i was afraid that's what you meant

another citing, a few weeks ago, the "happy couple" har har were in a brentwood restaurant and a male diner was staring so much that NK smiled and waved (another har har)

and they were supposedly at the jon stewart show at the ryman.....

why are these just coming out now, instead of when they supposedly happened? a rhetorical question, of course

EXACTLY what i was thinking

Well, I'll go ahead and answer that question anyways! Its because kidman needs a media blitz now, and seems to recycle past moments that maybe didnt get any attention and now believes that it will pass as fresh news. Lainey had a very funny post about conspiracy theories from down under... seems one theory is kidman's sis seems to be laying low, and the story going around over there is that she's the surrogate... and another one far more believable and totally plausable is that a fx house is digitally enhancing kidman's facial expessiveness in her next flop... and come to think of it, when I started to try and watch the new trailer for Australia...(and bailed after only about 30 seconds of that drivel) I felt that kidmans face at the start of that trailer where she's telling the kid the whole story, her face looked pretty bizzare, well more than usual... in fact I just surfed over to youtube to check it out again...and believe me, the only talk of this movie will not be of awards buzz, but the buzz of the bees that stung her on her swollen lips...live by the media blitz...die by the media blitz.

How can you prove something isnt true when it hasnt happened yet? What she does in her life doesnt make a difference to the skeptics because you just plain dont like her and never will. Why pretend here and act like if she just behaved "normally", whatever that means in your terms, that there would be no need for this blog. Thats never going to happen no matter what she does. So then why could you all possibly still be here? The answer is only to take the mickey out of Nicole.

Be careful not to group all skeptics together. There are as many opinions as there are skeptics. I was not a fan of NK before she hooked up with Keith ... but I didn't dislike her. I even thought (and still do) that she's a decent actress.

What I have learned about her and observed of her in the last few years has helped me form my opinion. I see her now as a very self serving and self absorbed individual, who appears to manipulate most people in her life to suit her purposes. I don't like how Keith Urban has changed since his relationship with her. She has emasculated him and made him appear weak and pussy whipped. He still is a hellova performer, but I fear for how his creativity has been impacted. So far, he appears to be struggling to find that gift he had for writing unique and worthy country music.

Probably the major factor that has influenced my opinion of NK is her obvious lack of interest in her children. I don't accept the "poor NK...the COS alienated her from her kids" BS. She stopped seeing them regularly in late 2004 to focus on her career and husband hunting. Now she is trying to gain sympathy from the public at the expense of TC and the COS. I have no doubt that having immersed themselves in the COS, they are influenced by that doctrine, but she allowed that to happen by her own actions and needs to be held accoutable for that.


Her frequent manipulation of the media is disturbing. She just plays the games that Tommy taught her to keep herself in the press.

I fear for this baby. I am somewhat impressed that she has stayed in the US and not made Keith continue the ridiculous commute half way round the world. If she stays in Nashville to deliver, she will elevate a notch in my view. We'll see how much she milks the birth story (which will no doubt prove that NK has had the most difficult delivery in comparison to any woman in history) for press attention.
