I Don't Want to See Your Kid, Nicole!

Thatʼs right; I have no interest in seeing young Sunday Rose Urban. I don't care what she looks like. I don't want to see her getting committed to Jesus. I don't care if she looks like Kidman or Keith or her real mother. Nope. I hate babies, is that what you think?

Actually I don't. I am quite fond of the little darlings. What I don't like is when a celebrity takes the natural curiosity about a baby that most people have and exploits that into some bigger thing that is all about the celebrity. Kidman is doing that with Sunday Rose. How is she doing that? By not showing her, by not really acknowledging her, and there have been no statements from Kidman, all have come from Keith. Nicole has said nothing about the baby publicly. What this does is create a frenzy of curiosity about the issue. What is a tad bit different in this whole thing is that the frenzy isn't really about seeing the baby itʼs about the mother.

Does Kidman look like she has a baby? Kidman is wearing tight white pants right after giving birth? What happened to her boobs? Breastfeeding? Is she suffering from postpartum depression? What happened to her hair? Why are she and Keith going to movies with a new baby at home? Why was she having lunch, going to yoga, and shopping while the baby that she wanted so much was left at home? Yes, dear reader, it has turned in to being all about Nicole. That, of course, was what this was all about. It had nothing to do with two people wanting to bring a child into a happy marriage. It was about NICOLE KIDMAN having a baby at this late date in her reproductive years. It didn't matter that her husband expressed his doubts about a child so soon into his recovery. It didn't matter that he had a career to try to fix. Nope, it was about NICOLE KIDMAN having a baby.

She had the baby and it wasn't quite as I believe it was supposed to be. She didn't get the headlines, well not for a very long while, actually about six hours then Matty had his little dude. The magazines of Australia would rather talk about those twins that were born in France. Most people said who cares? Even in Nashville there isn't much of a stir. I just bet there was a strategy session about how to make this more of an event. Thatʼs what we are seeing with all the speculation about the public sightings. However, there is one problem; more and more people are now on that ever widening wagon of those who believe that she used a surrogate to have this child, especially after seeing her out and about. For someone who wanted a child as much as she claims, she sure seems bored staying with her for long periods. Guess parenthood isn't what it is cracked up to be, but she already knew that because she tried the mother trip twice before. We are questioning you and talking about you, but thatʼs what you want isnʼt it? Itʼs all about you.

It's funny, I have no desire what so ever to see this child. Never thought I would think that about Keith's kid.

I still find it very odd that she is out so much considering she has longed for this her whole life and in a short time she will be spending many hours on a movie set!

I just don't get you Nicole..good luck Sunday..your going to need it cos " whatever comes Monday can take care of itself, we've got better things to do". Like the movies, starbucks, mattress shopping..

Aussie_Oklahoma said...

I know that you think by not selling Sunday Rose's picture, that Nicole is exploiting her. I disagree. If celebs sell pictures of their babys for how many ever millions, they are exploiting their kids and using them to get in the news and get the spotlight on them. It seems to me that Keith and Nicole are just trying to keep little Sunday Rose out of the spotlight.

Maybe for now. I think there is reason behind this, but for now they may really want her out of it. But in the future I have a funny feeling you will be seeing plenty of SuRose. Just a feeling.
(If I am wrong, then I am wrong.)

Imahick said...

I don't believe for a moment that NK did this to protect this child. First of all, the paps are reporting that she tried to negotiate a deal to sell the pictures, but the price wasn't right. Only when she couldn't get the amount of $$ she thought she should be able to, did NK find all this moral indignation to protect her baby.

In the meantime, she is holding out, like Tommy did, so she can cash in later. And although I doubt she'll get alot of $$ for the pictures, I think she's banking on a whole bunch of attention ... which is what it's all about for NK (and likely for Keith, although I think he's just along for the ride for the most part. I think NK is calling the shots on this).

I don't necessarily like the idea of celebs selling the pictures of their kids. But if there is going to be a paparazzi frenzy (and the paps are going to be stalking them til they get that picture one way or another) ... why not sell a couple of picture and give the $$ to charity? Why not have a charity benefit rather than the stalker?

NK is now purposely creating the speculation about this baby in hopes of a big payoff. Again...not a monetary pay off...but a PR payoff.

I would like to see this baby, just out of curiosity. Does she look at all like her "parents" and if so, who are her parents?

Tara said...

I think the blog is not about the picture issue but about the whole thing turning into a debate about Nicole.

maclen said...

Well, right on schedule kidman is playing up and also trying to set up a "Where's Little Sunrey?" media frenzy... E!online already has one... but will it catch on? With 3 photo ops this week... and many more to come, I'm sure, she's gonna try. The timeline I'd say is after jolie's twins have their cover story...and kidman will wait till after that is out to release her baby pic. As I commented on the last thread, McConaughey's baby pic is out already... because he is not in competition wih jolie, but kidman is. She will milk the release of pics just like the tomkat did.

Imahick said...

But Tara, that's the point. The picture issue is about NK. All of this is about NK. How to get more attention. How to take advantage of her baby to stay in the limelight. How to use the situation to her advantage. This is all about her. Even when she went to the movie in Nashville, she had to create a scene just to get a seat, cause common people were in the seats she wanted (though they came late as always) It was all about her needs and getting some attention, so everyone knew NK was in the theatre. Even the guy at the mattress place said it was all about NK. Everything is.

CJ said...

Someone told me she heard buzz pictures might be out by the weekend. I don't think so but we'll see. NK learned some of what Tom tried to teach her during their 10 year marriage. I think she will "copy" Tom in "hiding" Suray until the media is in a huge frenzy then do a Vanity photo shoot. lol, Vanity as in Vanity Fair, not NK's vanity - though that works too.

There is a difference between Tom and Nic though. Tom said during his Oprah interview "The whole family was here in CO. We were just enjoying hanging out and getting to know our new daughter. Then all these rumors started flying that we were hiding her and speculation as to WHY we were hiding her. We always intended to show her off through Vanity Fair - just as Nic and I did with Connor and Bella."

I'll give Tom the benefit of the doubt that he was telling the truth. It seems reasonable to me that a new mom, Kate, would want to stay home and spend time with her newborn. However, what Nic saw was them keep the baby out of the media and how much attention it drew to them. Though her motives are different she'll also keep the child out of the media, for now, in an attempt to get media attention for herself. However, I expect as the child gets older to see NK take her to the park for a photo shoot, shopping for a photo shoot, etc. Anything to get NK media coverage. Babies and puppies sell - and the puppy hasn't made its entrance. Yet.

CJ said...

Former 'Pregnant Man' Debuts His Baby through People after 3 weeks. Matt's baby boy's pictures are out after only 2 weeks. Even Tori Spelling has shown off her baby girl. Why do celebrities think we care? Sure, babies are cute, but they all look pretty much the same as newborns... Oh right, it's not really about the baby. It's publicity for the parents.

realitycheck said...

Own up to your opinions UMyths. This schizo approach of not crediting writers with their work is downright idiotic. Give the writers screennames. Let us address them and their opinions. Because first it was we want to see Sunday. Now it isnt. You arent helping yourselves by being so misleading.


cj, Tom did not say that about Nicole and the kids. He never mentioned her in the interview until she was brought up by Oprah, and what he said was minimal and sketchy at best. That 25 years of Tom Cruise episode the next day...not a mention or picture of any of the 3 movies they starred in together. TC wants everyone to forget he was ever married to a woman who is successful in her own right. The same thing will happen to Katie if she gets her druthers and becomes free of the cult. Its sad that girl had so much talent and he basically obliterated it with the CoS.

wastedemotion said...

RC-
I think TC doesnt want anyone to remember he was married to such a weirdo. Successful in her own right?! Thats laughable.

maclen said...

Well, Forbes has released it chart of the best celeb earners for the bucks they are paid...

http://weblogs.variety.com/thompsononhollywood/

(highlight link by scrolling right till you reach the end....and then copy and paste...etc)

...and not surprisingly, kidman is dead last... again! In fact I think her earnings ration to payment went down... last year it was 6 or 7 dollars... this year it's only $1.01. So despite her marriage... the "spectatular" Vanity Fair piece full of old and recycled "revelations" and her movies, invasion...margot and compass grossed less for her over inflated paychecks. Also the top earners lists was released, and of course not surprisingly, kidman is nowhere to be seen this year. This is not a anomaly... this is a recognizable trend. And do people believe she can revive her dead career by simply having a kid...then just return to her usual and tired photo ops... and expect her next movie, Australia, not to be a total box office dud? Once again, to paraphase kanye west..."America does not like kidman, People!"

CJ said...

"Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey and Nicole Kidman (the worst earner for the second year in a row) landed at the bottom by demanding big pay for films that flopped. The Invasion lost $2.70 for every dollar Warner Bros. paid Kidman."

Now, tell me again. How were the supporters defending Kidman's career and trying to convince us she still has one?

maclen said...

...ps...

...another poor showing from kidman in gossip site imnotobsessed recent poll...

http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/im-obsessed-releases-results-summers-hottest-list-entertainmentcelebrity-gossip/

... a few examples...Hottest leading lady...halle berry- 9%...eva mendes- 9 %...kidman? Only 2%...and jolie? 43%!
Now Hottest mom? halle berry-13%...jessica alba 13%...kidman? only 7%! Again not anomalies...trends....

notachance said...

Really UM? You don't want to see Sunday Rose? Coulda fooled me with the continually blogging about "where is Sunday Rose?". If Keith & Nic don't want to show her off just yet, that's their business. People can speculate all they want about the reasons, without proof none of it means crap. I personally hope they do nothing and just let her be their child - with no "unveiling", for free or otherwise.

don't believe the lies said...

Oh there will be an unveiling don't worry about that. It will be when Nicole gets what she wants out of it and is convienent for HER.

I thought it was weird that Tom & Katie didn't show their kid either. But then again they weren't out having lunch, shopping, going for coffee, doing yoga, wearing white (?!?!) right after the birth. They took Suri home and enjoyed her and got to know her. They also included his other kids in this whole thing. Is Tom a little weird? Hell yeah, but Nicole is way worse in the weirdo dept.

These whole 9 months have been strange with Nicoles pregnancy. Nothing has made sense.

Imahick said...

Notachance...I don't disagree with you on just keeping the baby to themselves and not revealing her. Although it's inevitable that a pap will get a picture and will likely be more aggressive than ever til there is a pic released.

As far as letting her be "their child" I'd feel better if the Mother made it look like she wanted her to be "their child." I guess Sunday will be "their child" and the "Nannies' child."

notachance said...

imahick - Your perception, and others here, of her being a mother is based on a few snapshots in time. Nothing more. How can you legitimately base a decision about her "mothering" of Sunday Rose based on paps pictures? That is irresponsible IMO. What tells more of the story is that they did not sell their baby to the highest bidder, no matter what the reason.

wastedemotion said...

nota-
Them not selling the pic tells me the amount of money they were offered wasnt enough...........

Sue said...

Is it all about Nicole? All I hear is Nicole! Does the Baby have a Daddy at all??? What does he think about publishing a pic of his daughter? NO ONE CARES! It's all about her.

Imahick said...

Of course it's all about NK. What hasn't been about NK? From the beginning of this whole mess it was about NK ... her life, her heartache, her marriage, her saving her husband whatshisname, her disappointment, her rings, her anniversary, her need for a baby, her horrendous motor vehicle accident which nearly killed her, her broken ribs, her laser eye treatment, her all natural yet painfully fake looks, her yearning for a baayyybeee, her heartbreaking miscarriages, her devastating obstetrical history, her x husband ... the love of her life, her pregnancy, her severe morning sickness, her exercising, her post delivery body, her yoga, her movie attendance, her not selling the baby's pictures because she is so morally superior, etc etc etc.

Keith was the sperm donor, and we're not really sure about that either.

notachance said...

You know imahick, what you've just described is most households - just ask Toby Keith why he wrote that song.

Face it, the woman is the center of the universe, home, etc. Ancient civilizations embraced that and cherished it. You want to place a negative spin on it though. Why? Only because it's NK, someone you do not like. I'm sure if we decided to put AJ to the endless microscope around here it could turn into a hate-fest just as easily.

CJ said...

"The woman is the center of the universe."

I guess THAT is why I'm not married - I'm suppose to act superior and be a dictator. And here I always thought relationships, marriage, and raising children, were suppose to be an as equal partnership as possible. Well, at least NK has the superior dictator role down almost as pat as the victim role so everything should be just fine.

Imahick said...

Actually, my part of the world is more male dominated. The women tend to cater to the men and the men get the recognition. That is changing of course, but I could never say that my part of the world revolves around women ... not in any universal sense. I don't live in a matriarcal society by any means.

This certainly applies to NK's world, though.

Keith's own personal success is secondary to Kidman's career, personal life, fashion choices, real estate purchases, X husband, next project, family, etc. etc.

I don't buy that this would be the case in any other situation except with NK or an actress who was as obsessed with fame and media attention. I can't comment on AJ...I don't follow her career or her union with BP.

It isn't this way with other couples in country music ... the whole world doesn't revolve around the wives of Allan Jackson or Kix Brooks or Ronnie Dunn or Brad Paisley. It's just NK...because of whom she is, the way she plays the media, her need to be in the limelight while pretending to be shy & coy, and her desire to play the victim to gain public sympathy. This is my opinion.

Do I like NK...the funny thing is that I didn't mind her to start with. When she and Keith initially hooked up, I thought it was fine. I thought the skeptics were all crazy to think that this would be a bad thing for him professionally or personally. But as time went on and I saw what was happening to his career, to his reputation, to his privacy, to his sobriety (in the fall of 2006), I started to observe NK and read up on her. What I've discovered by being more open to the possibilities is not a pretty picture.

I am not a hater. I am, however, someone who has allowed herself to consider possibilities beyond the fairytale. Again, this is purely my opinion based on what I've seen and read in the last few years.

Karolyn said...

"Actually I don't. I am quite fond of the little darlings. What I"

Why does that sound so fake?

"don't like is when a celebrity takes the natural curiosity about a baby that most people have and "


Do they? I thought you people said no one cares about Nicole anymore. What's it gonna be?

"exploits that into some bigger thing that is all about the celebrity. Kidman is doing that with Sunday Rose. How is she doing that? By not showing her, by not"


If she had "shown" her already she would have been accused of the EXACT same thing, right? Of exploitation. Give me a break.


"really acknowledging her, and "

She "acknowledges" her by securing her privacy. She's a newly born infant. Not everyone wants to pimp their newly born infants to the press.


"there have been no statements from Kidman, all have come from Keith."

So? Had there been statements she would have been an "attention whore". You intend to crucify her no matter what. We get it.


"Nicole has said nothing about the baby publicly. What this does is create a frenzy of curiosity about the issue. What is a tad bit"


Really? No one cares about her, so what frenzy? Oh! That's right, the frenzy here, you mean? lol So sorry that she doesn't accommodate you people.


"Does Kidman look like she has a baby? Kidman is wearing tight white pants right after giving birth? "


Yes, she does. She's much rounder overall, and her breasts are bigger. She can wear low-cut jeans since she had a natural birth.


"What happened to her boobs? "

They sure look bigger than they used to. Not all women get milk sacks the size of a prize cow when breast feeding.


"Breastfeeding? Is she suffering from postpartum depression? What"


Maybe. I'm sure you would all be happy to hear that. You are such kind and compassionate people.


"happened to her hair? Why are she and Keith going to movies with a new baby at home? Why was she "



Because the baby was sleeping and Nicole and Keith wanted to see that new movie?


"having lunch, going to yoga, and shopping while the baby that she wanted so much was left at home?"

Here we go again. Normal life does not stop when you become a parent of an infant, nor should it. She will not be locked up in her house 24/7 just to please you.



"NICOLE KIDMAN having a baby at this late date in her reproductive years. It didn't matter that her husband expressed his doubts about a child so soon into his recovery."


His doubts were not expressed in bed with his wife.

"t didn't matter that he had a career to try to fix. Nope, it was about NICOLE KIDMAN having a baby."


Yes, I'm sure you can say this since you know these people personally. Keith would have laughed his head off if he had read these hysterical blogs.

LilyRose said...

"His doubts were not expressed in bed with his wife."

Yes, I'm sure you can say this since you were there with them and know these people personally.

NK herself said Keith wanted to wait a couple years before having kids. But then, with her being 40 going on 65 she really didn't have time to wait now did she.

ima, interesting you brought up Keith's sobriety and trip to rehab. Word around music row is the proud papa is freaking out with the newborn home (which is completely understandable for a new dad) and is frustrated mom isn't taking a more hands on approach. Apparently NK isn't being very supportive and music city musicians are starting to worry about Keith.

The fact is that this blog isn't your cup of tea (or coffe)is well known now. Thanks for standing up for your idol. Now back to our regular scheduled program...

Ha! Perhaps kookoo was a third in their own menage a trois... ol' pops blowing the lid of the kids namesake may have revealed far more about their personal habits! Certainly, kidman and the orb will no doubt find, as Ive said before, that having a kid will not magically fix any professional or personal issues. And it will certainly add a complexity that neither of them has any experience in dealing with... namely, raising a kid.

So...the fact that NK is not really being a "hands on" mother surprises Keith? He really hasn't "got it" has he? He doesn't know the "real" NK. She has yet to show her true colors to Keith. She has been playing the role of the playful young wife, while controlling him to make sure he tows the line.

Maybe this will be a wake up call. Maybe the fact that NK is too self absorbed to truly be a MOTHER to anyone will help him find his manhood and assert himself.

I just hope he doesn't fall off the wagon ... if NK is not stepping up to the plate with Sunday Rose, that's alot of pressure for a guy who wasn't even sure he wanted kids yet. I think he is very enamoured with this baby...but can he assume responsibility for caring for her, while NK carries on with her life as if nothing has changed?

notachance said...

"the whole world doesn't revolve around the wives of Allan Jackson or Kix Brooks or Ronnie Dunn or Brad Paisley."

Interesting choices imahick.

Allan Jackson - wife has turned into extreme religious fanatic and if he doesn't embrace that life I'd bet that marriage would be on shaky ground again. Allan's world surey does revolve around Denise.

Kix Brooks - don't know much of anything about his wife other than she's a stay at home mom.

Ronnie Dunn - seems he & his wife are big NK supporters and actually *gasp* like her. Ronnie's wife was never happy with his career direction, always wanted him to be a solo artist. Sure, I bet she loves the money, but.....

Brad Paisley - Kimberly Williams is a successful tv actress these days and they are just two very different people from Keith & NK.

I think there's one thing everyone needs to admit - Keith wanted this kind of fame AND fortune. I think it's what he wanted all along, he's happy where he's at, and the only people with a problem are the skeptics.

doublewide said...

personally i think denise is sincere in her religious beliefs and THAT's what saved their marriage. but then, i happen to share her beliefs. and i'm not some kind of religious fanatic.

as for keith being happy with the fame and fortune, you're probably right. i just don't think he's happy with the wife. JMO

it doesn't matter who NK is married to, now. it ALL has to be about HER. PERIOD.

notachance said...

You know, maybe Keith likes it being about her. Maybe that's what was missing from his life - a woman who demanded it BE about her and not about him. Maybe, for the first time in his life he has given himself up to someone else and that has freed him from some demon that controlled his selfishness that inevitably led to his previous downfalls.

don't believe the lies said...

Nota...I'm going to have to disagree with you. His demons flared up right after they got married. Remember rehab? It can't be easy living with someone whose so high maint. either. She must stress the crap out of him.

Also I bet all those women he was with wanted it to be about them too it's just that Nicole came along and had more money and *gasp* fame. He could use her a little more to his advantage. I just don't think he knew what he was getting himself into.

About those other wives. I think they've stayed out of the spotlight. For the most part. They're not out whoring themselves to paps etc. So whatever they do in their private lives is their business. Nicole pushes hers out into the open so it's up for our opinions. So you guys can keep coming here and calling the "Skeptics" haters thats fine but remember whose putting it out there for us to talk about. Also remember that when you click to come to this site that it's not one thats a fan of Nicoles. You are well aware of that before you even come here so don't get mad when people jump on your opinions. Stay away if you don't like it. Go back to NKU or Monkeyland where all is right in your world.

http://www.nationalledger.com/artman/publish/article_272621742.shtml

...certainly this baby story has lost steam when they have to recycle the leaks this many times...and so far, as I'm aware of, only E! online is asking where's sunrey...boy the demand is certainly deafening... and I'm sure kidman will repeat the cruise kids meet sunrey in the next magazine "sensational revelations" piece of stories already spread on the viral net...

Seeing as how no one really knows the truth I'm willing to play the game - often times it's quite fun. Some of you offer up valid points, and I don't have any qualms about stating that when I see it, just as when I think it's a load of crap I'm gonna poke at that.

Actually, truth be told, I could argue both sides of this issue - and have.

Notachance said: "the whole world doesn't revolve around the wives of Allan Jackson or Kix Brooks or Ronnie Dunn or Brad Paisley."

Interesting choices imahick."

They were purposeful choices of situations where women aren't the centre of these men's public lives. I don't have Denise's religious beliefs shoved down my throat everytime I open a tabloid or see an interview with Allan. Same with Kix's wife or Ronnie's wife or Brad's wife. I know little about Kix or Ronnie's wives and Kimberly is not a part of every interview with Brad and if she is mentioned, it's a brief commentary and not a dissertation on how beautiful life is with her.

These guys are all high profile country artists with similar profiles to Keith ... and their wives are not prominent in the promotion of their careers. Their public lives do NOT revolve around their wives and I am not aware of where they stand in their private lives...because THEY'RE PRIVATE.

That's a nice feature. These guys go about their business without constant references to their wives. I'm sure their wives are important in their lives, yet they are able to promote themselves without constant references to them. The wives have not become part of their careers, as it should be.

As far as Keith wanting fame...no doubt about it. He appears to be quite hungry for it. Sadly, that fame is more related to whom he is married to than about his music. That is sad.

The wife seems to have taken over his career in many ways...he's lost his creative spirit (muse for want of a better descriptor) ... at times, it appears he is no longer in control of his career or music ... often, it seems he no longer thinks for himself because he is starting to sound all "dreamie" like NK.

Maybe he loves the direction his life is taking. I don't know. But it's my right to discuss my opinion of it here. I'm sure my opinion will not have any impact on how Keith and NK live their lives...any more than it impacts my life.

It is what it is...an opinion from a disappointed fan who thinks he is wasting his God given talent. On a positive note, I've heard two radio interviews and read a couple of written reviews lately that did NOT mention NK ... it was all about the music (and a few mentions of Sunday Rose, which seems quite appropriate given what a blessed event the birth of a baby is). Perhaps there is hope that NK will take a lessor role in his public life and he will assert himself ... and once again, appear to be driving the direction of his career. I guess I will wait and see if he stays in Nashville and makes some edgy music, like we know he's capable of. On the other hand if he ends up playing piano for tips in a London Hotel Lobby while NK rehearses her tap dancing ... I will know that it IS indeed about his wife yet again.

Well I wanna know if there is some dirt with this whole Fashion Rocks thing. KU and NT wont be passing eachother on this? Sorry I havent dug deep enough to even know what it's really about, but... KU and the word Fashion just brings back way too many memories.

Get KU around some models and it will be the TRUE test. Unless the rumors are true and sex is not what NK is against.

Well, doublewide, since we're not buying the whole kids visited 3 weeks ago...or 2 weeks ago..or last week... now what are the odds kidman jets off to England for her next flick and not to LA? But then these constant phoney stories are probably meant to cover that she is not going to visit cali... cruise's kids are done with kidman...and the "Ledger" is not going to convince anyone...well... except the copy and paste web sites.

CJ said...

"The "Ledger" is not going to convince anyone...well... except the copy and paste web sites."

Maclen, just because a site copies and pastes and prints a story doesn't mean that they are convinced it is true or that any of their readers will believe it just because they printed it. It's just a way to fill space.

"Maclen, just because a site copies and pastes and prints a story doesn't mean that they are convinced it is true or that any of their readers will believe it just because they printed it. It's just a way to fill space."

Yeah you're right cj, but it still does'nt lessen my dislike of them... the sites from singapore or taiwan... it is precisely that just "fill space" mentality in lalaland that transformed kidman from '90's "A-lister arm candy/mediocre actress to 2k "awards caliber Thespian" in less time than it took the ink to dry on the divorce papers... which now reminds me of my cruise/kidman awards timeline data... Or simply how events get spun into publicity gold...for some... (your getting a good look at it this very moment with the heath ledger supp. actor oscar talk for Batman...and when was the last time since the first Batman back in '89 has an actor recieved a nom for Batman?) So anyways... back to cruise/kidman awards performance... lets stick with oscars... Cruise pre divorce oscars noms? 3 noms over 10 years. Kidman? 0 over same 10 yrs.... Post divorce oscar noms? Cruise- 0... kidman- 2 noms over 2 consecutive years...and of course a win... Hollywood is a town that likes to write the warm and fuzzy ending... some people like to buy, I decide not to.

"now what are the odds kidman jets off to England for her next flick and not to LA? But then these constant phoney stories are probably meant to cover that she is not going to visit cali..."

It doesn't look like she will be. Hugh Jackman just let it be known that Kidman will be hitting the "Australia" film set again in a few weeks. She has to film more scenes. These aren't re-shoots. They're scenes she couldn't do while pregnant. And then it's off to London. And we can't forget all the promotion she'll be doing for "Australia".

I guess this explains some of the fanatical workout regime. She knew she had to be camera ready a month after giving birth and couldn't take the normal time to loose the weight & get in shape. So the trick is to not gain it at all.

The comment in Vogue about her not even being able to think about futre projects after she had the baby pisses me off even more than it did when I first read it. She knew then that she was going to do more filming for "Australia" and then film "Nine". But yet she got pissy when the writer made it sound like she works too much.

By signing onto "Nine" it proves once again that she doesn't take Keith or his career into account when choosing work. She knew that he had an album to work on. If she had to go back to work so soon, why couldn't she have found a film to shoot in the US? She had to choose one in London? Keith once again is left with the decision to either be apart from his family or put his own career on the back burner while Nicole concentrates on her career. Look at her schedule since getting married. How much thought was giving to Keith or her kids when taking on those projects? All of her chosen roles have been shot out of the US.

Keith made a joke during a radio interview the end of last year and he said that he's trying to convince her to do a movie called "Nashville" and that it would be a 2 year shoot. I wonder how much "joking" was really involved.

Images of the fall of 2006 are coming back and I don't like them.

maclen said...

Well, just saw this article on the online news ticker...from accesshollywood...

http://www.accesshollywood.com/article/10518/hugh-jackman-reveals-nicole-kidman-heading-back-to-work-on-australia/

...I bet the the kidman fanatics are having that dreadful and sinking feeling of kidman history repeating itself consequences of this... jackman reveals kidman to return to Australia set. Recall back in june 30, I commented of a few obviously planted positive "reviews" of a sneak preview of kidman's Australia...

Maclen said...
"Boy, from the descriptions, it sounds precisely like a typical kidman incoherant mess... a loooooong incoherant mess... get ready for either the reshoots or re-editing stories to begin..."

... and now, not even a month later, jackman is revealing that kidman is back to the Australia film set? So it seems those "positive" reviews were not the actual "reaction" that was the result! But what I'm concerned about if history repeats itself with recent movies of kidman.... stepford... Invasion...Compass... will the need for endless and never ending reshoots to kidmans dreadfully incoherant films cause her to possibly drop out of the flailing weinstein bro Co film version of Nine?! Because I was so looking forward to kidman once again being responsible for destroying another film company and the studio heads.... which is her norm...oh "Australia" reshoots...dont kill my dream!!!

maclen said...

ps...

...ah! Scooped by ecoaster... by that much!

maclen said...

ecoaster said...

"...She has to film more scenes. These aren't re-shoots. They're scenes she couldn't do while pregnant."

Oh? Is that what their calling it... how convienent...

doublewide said...

Oh? Is that what their calling it... how convienent...

hardy har har maclen

what scenes? horseback scenes? nude scenes? seriously she worked out like a freak and didn't show for like FOREVER......so what scenes would they be talking about?

CJ said...

Considering "Australia" went way over its filming schedule I doubt NK's pregnancy was the only reason for delays.

CJ said...

Supposedly she refused to ride a horse for the last month of shooting. So now she has to go back and reshoot some "intense" scenes.

AAAAA HAAAAAA. I guess that's what Keith's mom meant when she said they would be back in Oz soon - maybe by the end of the month. I initially dismissed that as hearsay since it would be so hard for Keith to do one concert in the states on the weekend and fly to and from Oz during the week. I guess there was more truth to the statement than I cared to believe. What a nightmare for Keith. Either cancel concerts to be with his family and tick fans off or stay in the states, do shows, probably record during the week, and be away from his family. What a horrible position for his loving wife to put him in.

maclen said...

...yeah not buying the it's not reshoots excuse, ecoaster... according to the official Australia website....

That’s a Wrap, People!
December 19th, 2007

It has been nine long months, but as of today Australia has finally completed principal photography. Baz Luhrmann and crew can now begin the next leg of their journey through post-production.

now, are people seriously going to claim that the website purposely "misled" it's interested visitors... it's very few interested visitors.... to the movies website to simply "cover up" the fact that kidman was pregnant? I certainly without question believe that they would... were talking about kidman after all... and here is where I agree with ecoaster... kidman is still too self centered and self occupied to be a decent parent... as ecoaster points out... kidman's comment in Vogue about "her not even being able to think about futre projects after she had the baby" is just plain and simple...Klassic kidman...

maclen said...

Yes doublewide, these are simple reshoots because the true reaction to the sneak preview was not good at all... another mess kidman has to desperately try and re-act her way out of..and we've all seen the results last year, havent we?

doublewide said...

maybe they have to reshoot some scenes where her face didn't move??? hee

of course, she probably got shot up immediately following delivery. either that, or she never stopped...

gotta agree with CJ, too. once again keith's career is subordinate to hers. what a surprise.

maclen said...

...as I commented earlier doublewide... I just hope this doesnt force her to drop out of nine...I want to see weinstein fall again because of kidman... as the saying goes..."fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on weinstein"... as for the orb, he'd be wise to follow that as well.

Urban Myths said...

Amen, maclen, AMEN!

Between reshoots for Fugly in the Wind and getting in vocal and physical shape for Nine she just must be a piece of work to live with, eh?

Imahick said...

She's a real piece of work. Keith was starting to look like he cared about his career and now he'll be following her around like a puppy again, instead of focusing on his music. But then, it was London for Nine before the detour to Sydney for Australia...so it was inevitable that it would be all about NK and HER career.

I'm inclined to think this is all about 'saving Australia' ... Me thinks this is "The Invasion" all over again. Poor NK...no wonder she has looked crabby in all the pictures since her baby was born. I'd expected to see a radiant mother, but I guess her first love is struggling, so that set the tone ... not even the birth of her baby could make her happy if her "last chance" was in the toilet.

rememberwhen said...

I knew after the boos in the theaters, there would be re-shoots down the road. Well we all know how the re-shoots for invasion worked. Is there a chance that they will never release Australia?

CJ said...

So, we last saw the "happily in love couple/thrilled new parents" on Monday. He suggested they go grab a bite to eat, she panicked at the mere mention of food and raced to the gym for an intense yoga workout. (From what I hear she is not easing back into anything - she's full on going all out.)

Hugh knew by the time his interview aired it would be Friday night and no "rep for Kidman" would be available until Monday. By then word that she's going back to Oz to resume filming - as early as next week if Keith's mom is to be believed when she said she thought they'd be back in Oz the end of the month - will have circled the globe. Even if a denial is issued on Monday it won't have the momentum a weekend released story will. Hugh says he and Nic are friends. Did he purposely hand NK a publicity goldmine? Even bad publicity - the critical people making noise about her choosing work over her newborn, marriage, husbands career, etc - is good publicity for some fame hungry people desperate to be in the spotlight as much for as long as possible. Or could it be Hugh is angry with NK and purposely revealed her plans to the public before she intended? Maybe for making him come back to do reshoots when he had other projects and plans in the works. Maybe he's realized he may be the next casualty of the "Kidman Kurse" when Australia tanks and sinks faster than the Titanic. Of course we'll never know his true motives and that's ok. It does make a person go hummm though in wonder...

cricket said...

I've got my fingers crossed that Australia turns out to be a repeat of The Invasion.The fact that it was booed in more than one city gives me great hope that the only people who will bother to see it actually live in Australia.

maclen said...

Urban Myths said...
"Amen, maclen, AMEN!
Between reshoots for Fugly in the Wind and getting in vocal and physical shape for Nine she just must be a piece of work to live with, eh?"

Yeah, Urban Myths, and who on this board didn't expect that she would be back on a set weeks after this kid appeared? And which ever reason you're going to go with... scheduled shoots... or panicked re-shoots... either way it will only result in furthering the appearance of kidman being a self centered, uncontrollable narcissist. The unsophisticated NKUsers will no doubt completely disregard she has a new kid, but of course will all rejoice she is back on set for their fawning fansie fixes. Yes, jetsetting a month old across the globe... and then halfway back, or simply dumping the kid with nannies, aides and agents is perfectly acceptable... yes, if you're disfunctional, which kidman clearly is.

CJ said...

Maclen, what was it you said... She would dance out of the hospital in a bikini to the next movie set and everyone would not notice she left her newborn behind - or something close to that. Well, back to the film set - check. Leaving baby behind with nannies - check. Ok, not a bikini but her workout attire is very tight and very revealing so close enough. And she'll begin dance and vocal preparations soon - if she is indeed able to do 9 (or 10 or are we up to 11 now?). Very good prediction!

Sonora_Melody said...

"Because I was so looking forward to kidman once again being responsible for destroying another film company and the studio heads....
...dont kill my dream!!!"

Why should Kidman be responsible?? Weinstein got into his current financial mess all on his own, no different than those New Line execs. They are ego-maniacs who still want to stay in the game long after they sold their companies. They should take a page from business execs in other fields: when you sell your company, just pocket the money and go do something else. Don't butt heads with the execs who bought you out. That's simply suicidal!

Daniel Day Lewis is the lead on "Nine". He and director Marshall should be responsible for the film's b.o., not Kidman. She is just one of many actresses in a supporting role.

maclen said...

Well I'd say, cj, that kidman is certainly playing to just her devoted fansies... but unfortunately, her fan base is not big enough to give her an occasional movie success... and again, will the casual observer be impressed she lost what little baby weight she gained in just 2 weeks? No, I would gather they will recall the endless workout photo ops and say she is so pathelogically addicted to her "body image" because she now has 2 film productions to finish and begin in maybe 4 to 6 weeks... oh and I forgot to mention in my last comment... with only about 4 months left till this so called "Grand epic" is to be released in Nov... you can pretty much bet if the release date is pushed back because of reshoots or "scheduling conflicts"... and god forbid she does drop out of Nine, then you can wager this film is certainly in trouble.

It looks like Kidman's fans share her priorities:

"Reshoots??? Oh God i don't like this.... Not only because the film premiere may be postponed, but also because Nine is almost here, and i hope Nicole doesn't leave it because of schedule conflits as happened in The Aviator, Producers..... "

So I guess the fact that she just had a child and wants to actually be a mother to it and not travel around the world isn't enough to want to drop a project? No priorites at all.

If her fans read the same articles I did over the last several years, they wouldn't be concerned about her dropping projects. They'd be questioning why she ISN'T dropping projects. They seem to have forgotten all of her declarations about slowing down in her career if she ever got remarried &/or had a child. If her schedule the past 2 years is any indication, she has no intention of ever slowing down her career.

Casse Role said...

Whatever the reason for the re-shoots, if they don't go well she can always use the postpartum card.
I am almost betting she will somewhere along the line. That could be the next PEOPLE cover.
"Nicole and her baby blues" (and a picture of her in a blue jogging outfit)
Of course I have no inside information... I am just making a comment.

maclen said...

Yes, this is just an initial gossip story...

http://www.nowmagazine.co.uk/celebrity-news/267899/nicole-kidman-to-move-back-to-la/1/

...but who doesnt or hasnt believed that this is how they are going to live out this phoney union... Tennessee not going to be good enough for kidman... so move to OZ and set up roots... for a few weeks... or as long as the reshoots last... then move to England and set up roots with the fam... until the movie shoot is over...then move to LA and set up roots once again... until another couple of films come up and she's off to her next home... and where exactly is this kid gonna be grounded to any rooted or stable home? She wont, she'll be raised as a traveling gypsy, like the birth mom...but with a gaggle of nannies and aides and agents packing the kid with all the other "baggage" the self centered mother in birth only carries...and I'm not talking about luggage...

Imahick said...

It's a sad way to be raised, in my opinion. Later in life, I think being able to travel is great. But a baby, toddler, young child needs structure. I think older kids appreciate a home base too...friends mean alot to them Right now, I don't really know where they'd call home base and Sunday Rose will be raised in hotel suites and transient mansions rented for Mommy on movie locations.

We all knew that Nashville was going to be replaced by something a bit more upscale for NK. She isn't going to be satisfied in a place where the paps aren't welcome, for God's sake.

Keith's needs and career will always be second to NK's. Sunday Rose's needs are secondary...that's obvious already. Heck ... she didn't even have the desire to take a few months off to bond with Sunday Rose. She couldn't wait to get out of the house and back to ... well back to anything...lunch with friends, yoga, movies, mattress shopping and now movie sets.

NK is so self absorbed and self centered...I wonder that the money is worth it to Keith. At some point, surely he'll see that he can make the $$ on his own and he'll get out. Hopefully, he takes the little one with him. Even Keith offers more stability than NK.

Tell that to the millions of men and women with young children who need to travel around the world and move residences because of their work in the military, diplomatic corps, multi-national companies or academic research.

CJ said...

Last I checked movies were not essential to survival. Air yes. Water yes. Movies no. There's a difference in needing to travel around the world and having to move residences because of important, necessary work in the military, diplomatic corps, multi-national companies or academic research and doing it because you can or because you want to. NK doesn't need to work to support her family. She works because she wants to. Most people don't have the option she does. If she never made another movie the rest of her life nobody would die, the world would be no worse off, and people will find entertainment elsewhere. The damage Suray could inflict on mankind because she had a traumatic, non-stable childhood is limited only by the imagination.

you're just FREAKIN RUDE

CJ said...

doublewide, she is just grasping at straws because she doesn't have a leg to stand on. If you'll notice she hasn't been posting as often lately because, well, really. How can anyone believably defend Nicole Kidman's behavior and upcoming intentions.

doublewide said...

yep, CJ.....you're exactly right

Sonora_Melody said...

" CJ said...
doublewide, she is just grasping at straws because she doesn't have a leg to stand on. If you'll notice she hasn't been posting as often lately because ..."

Don't flatter yourself. All the skeptics' posts here are the same o' same o' crap. I choose when and what I post.

realitycheck said...

cj, just becaus we arent posting doesnt mean we arent reading. Something to think about. It really is the same old same old. Theres no need to comment when there's nothing worth commenting on in the first place.

Imahick said...

I agree with you, CJ. Anyone who would defend a woman who puts herself and her career ahead of her child's is obviously unbalanced ... or on NK's payroll. I haven't decided which, but it's one or the other.

realitycheck said...

And being obsessed with someone you claim you despise, commenting on their every move is the picture of mental health. Yeah right!

Imahick said...

I've never claimed I dispised NK...you are wrong. I have actually said she is a good actress. I don't like the impact she's had on Keith's career and right now, I'm not impressed with how she appears to be mothering Sunday Rose. And don't tell me I'm delusional. There are more than enough pictures to prove that she's spending way too much time away from the baby...and now has two movie projects to work on ... and it's only three weeks since she was born.

Anyone defending this type of activity ... as I said is unbalanced or on NK's payroll. I believe the statement made by Lilyrose regarding Keith's concern. It simply confirms what we have been seeing. NK has as much maternal instinct as a cardboard box and is not interested in caring for the baby...she's interested in her career.

getaholdofurself said...

you don't suddenly discover after two years that someone is self-absorbed. if the rumors are true, keith knew what he was getting himself and sunday rose into before now.

Imahick said...

I believe that it is possible to be fooled by someone you are living with ... particularly when you are with them only for periods of time. Keith and NK have had lots of time apart. I don't think he knows her well. I think she plays alot of games with the men in her life and he has been subject to it.

She says lots of things that she wants people to think but are not based in reality. The stuff she has said about having a baby and cutting back on her work are obviously just statements she made because she thought it was the right thing to say. She is clearly not taking that direction...there is no evidence that she's cutting back on her work commitments...she has as many projects on the go now as she did in the past. The baby has made absolutely no difference to her.

I think Keith is just starting to recognize the inconsistencies between what she says and what she does. I've seen this type of thing happen in my own family and it took a long time before the "truth" was recognized between the game playing and control.

Casse Role said...

I don't know her personally to hate/despise the gal. I just don't CARE for some of the things I have heard about/read about. I would love to hear about how she and Keith are taking their daughter to the park in a carrier, rather then hearing she is off to work to redo shots on a movie. From these things, this is how *I* base my feelings on her. The fans of Nic base them on other things, and that is fine. But once again, many of us don't HATE her. But think what you want.
I know how I feel.

getaholdofurself said...

imahick, you're one of only a handful of skeptics who gives me pause. your posts are well thought out and you generally get your point across without stooping to a level that detracts from the skeptics' cause.

that said, if the rumors are true, i have a hard time believing keith had absolutely no idea what he was getting into. i believe there are red flags along the way. it's a choice to investigate or ignore them.

Imahick said...

getholdofyourself: "if the rumors are true, i have a hard time believing keith had absolutely no idea what he was getting into. i believe there are red flags along the way. it's a choice to investigate or ignore them."

I agree that if he was thinking clearly, he should be more clued in to what NK is all about. But I think early on, he was obviously using and drinking to excess and I think he got talked into this marriage without thinking it through. I doubt either of them knew each other well at all. They really didn't spend much time together if you look at how much time she was away and he was touring.

I think that's what his unravelling in Oct 06 was about...

Since treatment, I think he's been working very hard at staying clean & sober and I think she's been working very hard at making sure he appreciates that she didn't kick his a$$ to the curb after Amandagate. So...I think he's been trying to stay "alive" both literally (from addiction) and in his marriage. I don't think he's been as aware as most husbands would of what his wife is all about.

If there is love involved in this relationship (and although I'm not suggesting it's the traditional "love" that most of us know...I do think there's a deep sense of obligation on his part), that can make people very blind. NK is an actress. I think so far, she's been playing a game with him, playing a role, so to speak. And it will take time for him to see reality. Maybe seeing how she is relatively ambivalent about this baby will wake him up.

I don't think he's innocent in this mess, but I do think she's the consummate game player and he's very unsophisticated in comparison.

"CJ said...

They have choices! They could have switched jobs, decline a promotion, be less ambitious with their careers, and choose a job that would not require them to travel as much. Many have done so, too. Even members of our military have choices. They could have chosen another line of public service, for example, join the local police or firefighting teams. Yes, all made their choices. I would never be judgmental of the choices they made. It's THEIR lives, they can choose to live however they want. In much the same way, I will not be judgmental of how Nic and Keith, or any celebs, choose to live their lives.

As judgmental as you skeptics are of everything that Nic does, or reportedly does,which oftentimes is made up by the media and bloggers like UMyths, I just hope that someone else in real life comes along and scrutinize your lives and pick them apart the way you're doing to N&K on this blog.

Aus said...

There are new photos Online at X17.com of Matthew McConaughey, his girlfriend and their baby on the beach. His baby is only 3 weeks old and was born on the same day as Sunday Urban. Matthew's girlfriend's stomach is flatter than Nicole's and she is also wearing white pants. Guess she didn't get the memo either about new mothers not being able to wear white pants. Guess the baby is not to fragile to hang out at the beach at less than one month old either.

CJ said...

All I got from X17.com was aviation stuff... At lest Levi's parents took him with them when they went out. Sunday has been repeatedly left at home when mom and dad go out. As for the white pants - it's been an extra week since NK was seen in hers. If she wants to risk it that's her choice but still probably not a wise move. The discharge has probably slowed down and/or had an extra week to work itself out. Were they tight white pants as well? Any of her in a bikini? If so NK might copy her soon. I say might. If it were Kate Cruise there would be no question she would.

Aus said...

Halle Berry and others have been out and about for months without their newborns. And you should tell Brangelina that children need stablity because their kids have not lived in the same house for more than a month at a time.

Imahick said...

This is not a Brangelina blog ... but many of us might have opinions on her mothering skills also. The one thing I can say...you SEE her with her kids. They may be all over the place (and that I'm not a fan of) but at least she looks like she loves them and does things with them.

NK is not seen with her first two kids and admits she doesn't have a close relationship with them. Please don't tell me this is a COS thing, cause I am not buying it. She decided in late '04 to pursue her career and a man ... and her kids were getting in the way. She left them in Tommy's hands to raise and love...now, they don't care to spend time with her. KARMA ... that's all I can say.

I love that Matthew is out with his baby. I haven't seen the pictures, but she is younger than NK so I think that explains some of that "bounce back" ability...and the white pants ... it's another week at this point. She is still showing more maternal instinct by 100 fold than NK. I don't think that a month old baby is too delicate to take outside ... I'm sure he isn't toasting in the sun. To me, it's sweet that they've included Levi in their day to day lives. By all accounts, Matthew is thrilled about this baby and so, why not enjoy the beach with him?

NK is out frequently without Sunday Rose. Why not include Sunday in some of those outtings? Why don't Mommy & Daddy take her out for a stroll or to lunch? Nope...Mommy is out to lunch, out to Yoga, out to the movies, out to Starbucks, and by all accounts even KEITH is concerned.

Imahick said...

NK was out to dinner with "friends" on Saturday night while Keith was in Boston. Again...no sign of the baby. That child is being raised by Nannies after all that BS NK spouted about yearning for a baby. What a piece of work.

Nicole Kidman Seen In The City, sans Keith and baby


http://stephinthecity.com/2008/07/27/nicole-kidman-seen-in-the-city-sans-keith-baby/

CJ said...

Did Halle Berry and others have their return to the film set - outside of the country - planned before they gave birth? Nope. First time moms Halle and Jessica Alba and even Jamie Lynn took time off to be with their newborns. I know, technically NK isn't a first time mom but I assume childbirth is a difference experience from bringing home an adopted child. Not better or worse, just different. No matter how a baby is brought home mom should stay with the baby to care and bond with them. So much for third times a charm. She didn't stay home with Bella or Connor, I guess it was too much to expect she would change for the "biological baybee" she has
yearned for for so long".

Aus said...

You think it's "great" that Matt and his girlfriend took a 3 week old baby to the beach where there's blowing sand etc. Not to mention paps chasing them which is dangerous. Folks on other blogs think they are crazy. Naomi Watts took her infant son out of the country at just a few weeks old and she completed an entire movie before he was six months old. She flies commercial with her baby all over the world. Okay, Camilia gets a "pass" for wearing all white even though folks said no new mother would do that for at least 6 weeks!! All these "rules" seem to only apply to Nicole Kidman.

Aus said...

Jamie Lynn Spears is an unwed teenage mother who was working for "Disney". She doesn't have a job to go back to. That's why she sold her baby to Okay Magazine for a million dollars. She needed the money. Jessica Alba's last movie bombed and nobody is knocking down her door offering her work and she's probably exhaused from travelling all over the world "throughout" her pregnancy promoting that movie. She looked exhausted and almost about to faint most of the time. Halle Berry has been lining up films for months now.

Imahick said...

You know what I think? I think it's great that those parents (Matthew, Naomi, Halle) SPEND TIME WITH THEIR CHILDREN.

Do I think that Matthew's baby is eating sand and frying in the sun. I highly doubt that. They are thrilled to spend time with him.

Do I think it's dangerous for Naomi to take a baby only a few weeks old on a trip? No. NK will be going to Oz and London to film and Sunday Rose will be going too. But I'm sure that the Nannies will be providing all the care she needs.

To me, a family spends time TOGETHER. NK has been out and about since four days post partum WITHOUT her child. She appears bored and restless. You couldn't pry me away from my kids at that age. They change every day so much, I didn't want to miss a thing. NK...not so much.

So I will not criticize a parent who appears to care enough to spend the time with their new born. If I thought Matthew was abusing Levi, I would be concerned. In this case, I think NK is neglecting her baby...but for some reason some seem to think that's OK...as long as NK is happy and working.

I think it's a sin for her to show so little concern for her baby ... I think it's typically NK, though. I had hoped to see some semblance of maternal instinct. Instead, I see that her self absorption is definitely intact.

imahick, i agree that keith seems to feel a deep sense of obligation where nk is concerned, but i'm still not convinced he had no idea who she was prior to the birth of their daughter. self absorption is a difficult characteristic to mask. while keith strikes me as a man who may not be as self aware as he initially comes across, he doesn't strike me as one who has trouble reading people. in fact, i think he's quite adept at it.
