They are so happy... everything is just so blissful?

Judging by all the press that has been generated in the last few weeks everything is perfect with the Family Urban. We are glad, aren't we?

Were you worried that Keith and Nicole might have a few problems adjusting to their daughter? I sure did. We have two forty plus year old people and an infant, and you know there might be some issues. Considering neither really has any experience with babies there just might be a troublesome moment or two, but it seems that all is well down on the farm and we can't be happier.

Aren't they handling it well? Nicole looks so rested and relaxed in all those pictures we see of her out and about. Apparently over the weekend she was out again with "friends" in Nashville while Keith was off at work, slaving away on stage in Boston. Daddy too looks like he hasn't aged at all. His smile, his demeanor, his comments to the press about late nights and changing diapers. Fatherhood agrees with him doesn't it?

It looks like the family Urban will be traveling overseas soon as Mommy must go back to work. Seems that there will be pesky re-shoots on the epic movie and Mommy must be there to do all she can for the cause. Also a trip back to Australia to see Grammy and Grampy Kidman and Auntie Antonia will warrant a slew of pictures. Or, not. There probably will be a few minutes to meet the other side of the family, too, if time allows. But during the next few weeks the focus will continue to be on the new Mommy and her career, regardless of anything that might have been happening for Daddy. Such as a very lovely dinner being planned in New York City on November 12, 2008. That is also the night of the most important awards in Country Music but we all know where Daddy will be, don't we? And while there are rumors that Daddy really needs to produce for his record label, instead of spending time writing recording and doing all that is necessary for Daddy's career, Daddy will be in Sydney and London and anywhere but where he should be. But that is what one gets when they are in the happiest family on earth.

What lovely dinner is being planned in New York City on November 12, 2008?

Not that it matters. Now that she doesn't have a baby bump to pimp she won't be attending any more "silly award shows" so neither, very probably, will he. He doesn't have a very good chance of winning anything. (NEVER thought I'd say that about KU.) If there's a dinner in NY for HER they might attend. Otherwise they will be skipping any events for him so she can leave the country to film. He can't have anything. She even tried to overshadow any good concert reviews he might have gotten from Saturday's show with her "dinner with friends" plant/leak. Keith, wake up and smell the Starbucks!

i agree CJ....sadly keith won't have much of a winning chance....

she just attempts to upstage him at every turn. so glad you're so balanced, keith

Hmmmm.... so now they're 40+??? Geez, she JUST turned 41 and he's still 40. Let's give that a few more years before the 40+ thing is used to describe their ages.

Tara said...

40 is the new 30.
I wonder if he really wanted her at all the country awards or did he not get a choice? Wasn't it all about her when she did show up?

notachance said...

Of course he wants her there, Keith wants any kind of fame he can get. I think this exactly the life he wanted but didn't know how to achieve on his own without looking too much like an asshole. He's got the perfect scapegoat (I'm sure NK had a different kind of goat in mind to milk). Doesn't make him not a nice person.

You want spin, how's that?

The CMAs are never as late as the twelfth,they're always, right around the 4-8th.

I know that it will upset you that Keith will be there and not following Nicole around like a puppy, you need to get your facts straigh.

check your facts before you get uppity,aussie-oklahoma.

I think he'll go to the CMA awards later this year, if he'll get an award or not. It's THAT event in country music and Keith has a career going, does he? It's a MUST for every country musician to be there!

Imahick said...

Hopefully he WILL be at the CMA's on the 12th. But I bet he leaves the minute the show is over and flies to NK's side. He doesn't seem to mix much with his peers anymore. She pretty much has him on a short leash, flying in and doing his own shows and flying out.

I wonder how long he will be happy for his career to be secondary to hers? I know I would start to resent it after awhile. He spent all of last year making sacrifices for her...and I am watching very carefully to see NK make even ONE concession for Keith.

I'm not holding out much hope. She doesn't seem to take Sunday Rose into consideration, so why would the sperm donor get any?

Knowing how things have been with Keith since the early 90's, I dont think a rollercoaster is anything new to him. I think he's taken huge losses that have toughened his hide. However, he has never had success better than 2003-2005. The KU we know just loves to do different things and get creative. He's always morphing and changing.

Yes we all know that the NK union wont make things better but at this point I just dont think he actually cares!! Call me crazy but he doesnt seem to give a damn. He seems like someone that will ride the wave all the way down and await the rise (tall or short as it may be) to carry him back up.

We've all been collected and used as tokens of Keith's career. We may have more in common with NK than she thought.

Who mentioned the Nashville movie?? Makes a lot of sense to have Nashville celebs start kissing her ass as soon as she got preg. And didnt Keith make a comment of being in a movie in the beginning that was quickly covered up?

Umyths you choose to put all the focus on Nicole and ignore Keith. He's done some fantastic shows and is going to get to #1 with Shirt. But you cant stand it. I wouldnt be surprised if many of the writers here go see "Australia" just so they can bash it scene by scene.

Ive said this before but how ironic is it that you have the "We dont want to hear about your wife!" banner and this blog is 95% all about her!

"The CMAs are never as late as the twelfth,they're always, right around the 4-8th."

Actually, no, they are the next week and have been the last several years. The year Womack won Album of the year, beating Keith, the awards were on Nov 15, 2005. He went on to win Male Vocalist and Entertainer of the year. I figured 2 out of 3 was a good enough birthday present. Then backstage he was asked if he was engaged to NK. Little did I know the next year he wouldn't show at all (locked up in rehab for Amandagate) and the next year, well, things just keep going downhill for him.

I don't know if Shirt will get him a single of year nom. If the video had come out at the same time as the single maybe but it didn't. He'll probably be nominated for male vocalist but not sure of his chances. EOY nom? If they keep ignoring the girls then probably but his chances are winning or small. If he's going to skip the Grammy Awards he may as well miss the CMA's as well. She's going to kill his career quick enough.

Very sad....

rememberwhen said...

cj she already has. Keith has not had a #1 single since August of
'05. It will be three years this August.
