A few questions to help us understand...

Here at Urban Myths we try to stay current with the latest myths surrounding the Kurbans but we are stymied about the last few days, so we have some questions to ask out readers.

1. When did Kidman become like royalty in Australia?
It seems that she can't take a break to the loo without it being a headline. Was it like this when Tom was her husband?

2. Are carriers and baby seats not required for hauling around a bundle of joy?

3. Does Keith go to more AA meetings in Oz than elsewhere?

4. Must one be a thespian or have the Kidman name to see the baby?
Seems that if you are named Urban or you aren't important, the baby is off limits.

5. Is there a rule that Keith must get major highlights in his hair whenever he gets to Sydney?

6. Why won't anyone say anything of substance about the baby?

7. How many times will Keith and Kidman go see the Dark Knight?

8. When are the Kurbans going to visit their new home?

9. What’s with the leather?

10. Why isn't Keith smiling more?

Just asking.

well, obviously doublewide, she apparently missed photo ops the first time around...and she must... postitively MUST... have her picture taken at the biggest movie of the year...(and she was desperate to be at a film that was even moderately successful) And think, the leathers would have "matched" the dark knight too and been too "cutesie pie" for words to the aussies! (I'd make a better PR hack than her inept team) ..or who knows, maybe she and the orb went dressed up as Batman and Robin!... (the orb dressed as Robin, of course)... well actually, the orb should dress as Alfred! (You rang, sir?) And that is a hilarious point, Urban Myths, only celebs admitted to see her baby... all others take a number and wait in the lobby... exceptions of course... family members can step forward immediately...NOT so fast urban clan...you stay put in the states till further notice...
...and kidmans SideShow and Australian Baby Press Tour rolls on....

Volenut said...

Wait! Isn't "Australia" the biggest movie of the year???

doublewide said...

oh lord, maclen, that "alfred" comment was so spot on.....

sad, really, but you're crackin me up

cactus said...

Trust me, the only reason she gets alot of attention from the Australian media is because that is how she wants it. Actors like Hugh Jackman, Cate Blanchette and Toni Collette who are currently living in Australia receive no media attention - all of them are better actors too. Rachel Griffith moved back to Oz too recently and the paps leave her alone. Our paps are quite well behaved, its just that Nicole encourages them. It was different when she was with Tom. He must have had more control over here as the paps left them alone when they visited. For instance, when they lived in Oz for 6 months while he filmed "Mission Impossible 2" you rarely saw any photos of them around. People didnt care then either.

1. When did Kidman become like royalty in Australia?

When they decided the movie Australia would save the economy

2. Are carriers and baby seats not required for hauling around a bundle of joy?

Only if there really is a baby.

3. Does Keith go to more AA meetings in Oz than elsewhere?

Gotta keep Papa Kidman off his back.

4. Must one be a thespian or have the Kidman name to see the baby?

Some people just can't follow a script.

5. Is there a rule that Keith must get major highlights in his hair whenever he gets to Sydney?

He wasn't allowed to use hair dye when she couldn't.

6. Why won't anyone say anything of substance about the baby?

They all signed non disclosure forms before they approached the manger.

7. How many times will Keith and Kidman go see the Dark Knight?

Maybe they left before the end in Nashville because the seats weren't good enough.

8. When are the Kurbans going to visit their new home?

It's probably sold already.

9. What’s with the leather?

New kink for Nic.

10. Why isn't Keith smiling more

See #9.

>>>>>

Nah, it was long before this movie came along. She was called "Our Nic" for quite a few years before any mention of Oztralia. Somewhere between the divorce from TC and being annointed with the Royal Whatever award in LA, where she met Keith, is when she ascended the throne. I believe the official crowning took place at the event held on June 25th, 2006.

2. Are carriers and baby seats not required for hauling around a bundle of joy?

Only if there really is a baby.

>>>>

I know I saw a baby seat in a pic or two. It's possible that she was seen holding the baby in the backseat when the vehicle was not in motion. Even she's not that stupid.

3. Does Keith go to more AA meetings in Oz than elsewhere?

Gotta keep Papa Kidman off his back.

>>>

I just think that in Nashville it's not reported on and his privacy in that matter IS respected.


4. Must one be a thespian or have the Kidman name to see the baby?

>>>

This one does piss me off that his family has yet to see the kid and every other Tom, Dick or Harry in Sydney has. Just not right. If they had, in fact, flown in for the weekend, there would've been some kind of pic of their arrival.


5. Is there a rule that Keith must get major highlights in his hair whenever he gets to Sydney?

He wasn't allowed to use hair dye when she couldn't.
>>>>

How could you tell? He's done nothing but wear a hat the entire time he's been there.


6. Why won't anyone say anything of substance about the baby?

They all signed non disclosure forms before they approached the manger.
>>>>

What kind of substance are you looking for? She's intelligent, funny... The kid's a month old for chrissakes! Gorgeous, cute, whatever are all you can pretty much use to describe an infant at that age.

Yes she is

See the pics of him going to AA in Sydney, he's got highlights again, no hat. Sorry i didn't save the link, it must be around somewhere.

Something besides one word descriptions is I think what Umyths meant. Like a cute anecdote about daddy Urban maybe...

Tara said...

I wonder if there is something wrong with the baby?

notachance said...

If there was something "wrong" with the baby you could bet your bottom dollar that baby would never have left the hospital and there would be no photo's at all, even swadled, not to mention visits from the quasi-friends. Even that much of a charade is beyond anything NK - or Keith - could ever do.

Watch out skeptics, I'm betting this kid is cuter than pie.

woriedmonkey said...

Hellooooo... Keith is quite possibly not smiling (apart from the shot in the car on arrival in Oz) because he is stressing out about placating the Queen while litrally shafting his own family. It's called guilt.

That's my guess...

Lisa said...

tara, I raised this question and got flamed. Not by anyone that is an asset for this site but still.


You guys notice that the further this goes along, the more Kidman looks as though she owns us and the more afraid Keith is??

I'm sorry but I think that is pure fear on that mans face.

Lisa said...

notachance, I dont expect her to do anything less than have a decoy. She's used Antonia's kids and even others' children to keep her face family like in the media before.

Who knows, maybe that slight tiff between her and Naomi was because she wanted to do it again??

'Borrowing' babies is nothing new for her.

Lisa said...

I think they have a time table to follow and have a decoy for now until the 'pretend baby' is presented to us.

It doesnt matter how many times her ppl come here and shoot what we say down and then cover it up with an nk "move".

You cant call what we say outlandish when it's NK for Pete's sake!! She is the Queen of outlandish. What on earth did they say when she grabbed her crotch at a concert or almost revealed her Betha-Bonnie in that embarassingly short black dress she wore in the past?? Was it taste then??

Her attempt to being painted the victim are actually helping Keith appear as one instead.

Lisa said...

"Cute as Pie"


What's wrong... the baby isn't cute as pie enough NOW? We gotta wait for a "cute as pie" baby?

No, I think they are baby shopping.

notachance said...

I'm sorry, but I will not ever buy that Keith would be party to "baby shopping", as you put it. This whole conspiracy is beyond ludicrous.

maclen said...

So, it seems kidman is back on set to attempt to reshoot her next flop...so about a week after arriving back in Oz, which immediately began with kidman phoning into a morning radio show to plead for "space" from the aussie paps so she could show her daughter the "sights" of her town...the kid has only gotten to see the interior of aunties house. Meanwhile it's been day after day....and day after day of photo ops at the circus in matching costumes for the sake of the "dreaded" paps... and to the movies...twice... press releases of olympic good luck videos and a visit from her next flop of a movie's co star... It seems inept team kidman is losing sight of the reason for the pre- Oz return careful covert planning she disapeared the week prior for...not a plan on how to enter the country unseen... but how to pimp the fact she's returning to Oz...to try and save the faultering OZ film... with her new baby... only they've eliminated the baby... and all they are left with is kidman...so any "perceived" clamor that is supposedly building from the Aussie citizenry to see her baby by the always fawning OZ press, may just fizzle before she gets around to it in about 3 months.

maclen said...

... just a little humorous observation... over at JJ's, the photos of jackman visiting kidman were just posted, prompting a comment from his peanut gallery, to paraphrase... " Its about time! What took so long to post photos?" Interesting, when kidman is "visiting" in the states, JJ usually gets early info and photo ops to post... but now that kidman is in OZ with her Aussie Sideshow and Baby Press Tour and no doubt preoccupied with shilling to her aussie flunkies, JJ's reduced to the scraps...

ecoaster70 said...

#10 Speaking of not smiling. You can actually see his entire face in this photo. He looks annoyed as heck. But there's Nicole..smiling away. But of course the Kidman followers comment on how happy & relaxed they look. One of them does anyway.

http://www.livenews.com.au/Articles/2008/08/08/Sydney_anxiously_awaits_Sunday

"The proud mum took some time out yesterday (Thursday) to get her hair done at top notch mop choppers Valonz in Paddington."

So, in the pics going in and out of the sister's house NK had had her hair done the day before. That's what her hair looks like "done" only 24 hours later? If I had to hide my "just done" hair under a baseball cap only 2 days later I'd go back and demand my money back and a redo ASAP.

maclen said...

Despite being back on set cj... kidman needs to go to a hairdresser, because it is part of the press tour to be seen and reported every day now to stay in the OZ press, no matter if she actually needs her hair done. And about the story of the started reshoots... so Jackman traded riding shots with his riding double... and kidman's riding double worked on some riding re shoots... and kidman was "rumored' to be working in an inside set? I thought the supposed reason given for these "needed" reshoots was because kidman couldnt do riding shots while pregnant last Dec? And now kidman is back in Oz to do these reshoots ... but her riding double is doing riding reshoots? Yeah the Oz press and her dense and fawning defenders may choose to believe these are re -shoots simply because she couldnt do them 8 months ago, but the real reason is they are trying to reshoot a mess of a movie... and kidman is indeed having to redo close ups in an "indoor" set because her heavily botoxed and swollen lips wouldn' t allow her to emote or even force an expression on her face. As I commented months ago, the real star of this film will be her ridiculously swollen lips, and the chuckles and guffaws she most likely and certainly got at that disastrous sneak preview which forced these desperate reshoots.

maclen said...

Hey cj, I just now re checked that article you posted by livenews.com... you know, the Oz press trying to muster up a little aussie "kurban" baby fever...(the ozzies actually call them that? reminds me a little of "kurban cobain") So this article is claiming "Sydneysiders have been gripped with “Sunday Rose” fever?" And also,... "The Daily Telegraph’s resident gossip-mongers “Sydney Confidential”, who regularly spit bile at celebrities, were instead gushing in the direction of Kidman and Urban.

“Call us clucky but Confidential – like millions of Kurban fans – will just burst if we don’t see her baby face soon".

...well, what I noticed this time around was the comments to this online article, you know the actual citizenry of Sydney, a sampling of those supposedly "millions" who are "bursting" to see this kid... here are the comments to this article...

It is only the Aussie media that has Sunday Roast fever, so ridiculous. Regular people don't care, it's a baby, people have them every day. The Aussie media lead poor delusional Nicole to think that all of Sydney cares, and they don't.

Please don't Sydney siders in with the paparazzi. Leave the people alone and don't justify photographer's gutter scraping by saying the people of Sydney want it.

What is so special about a Sunday Roast anyway?

Posted by: Glenn Anderson, Sydney

...wow, it certainly is "kobain" baby fever in OZ!!

the captain said...

1) She married Hollywood royalty - we couldnt believe 'our' Nic married Maverick. Til then we only had Greg Norman to fawn over as an American accented Aussie.

2) Suri Cruise. Offspring are carried by stars for PR (and hauled around by nannies when the papps aren't around).

4) Only Oscar nominated Aussies are permitted to enjoy the Sunday roast. The Bourbon's only get put on notice. How sweet.

doublewide said...

lol......thanks for the comments, maclen.....seems they don't care any more than the USA does!

the kurbans need to give it up....

on a side note, i have not seen one pic of keith since this baby was born where he actually looked happy. i saw only ONE with a somewhat smirky smile when he was attempting to get the camera hungry wife into the snot car bentley....or whatever car it was.

speaking of cars, the STAR reports that kidman made him give up his porsche for a more "family friendly" bentley. ha.....they drove a bentley long before she ever announced her pregnancy only minutes after viewing the stick, seemingly.

cj, did keith ever own a porsche? do you know?

notachance said...

Porsche? Not that I'm aware of - if so then it was kept under wraps.

No, she made him give up the Impala that meant so much to him. The one he bought with his first royalty check.

doublewide said...

No, she made him give up the Impala that meant so much to him. The one he bought with his first royalty check

i forgot about this car.....didn't he drive it in his DGB video?

maclen said...

So, also doublewide, seems that the sideshow and baby press tour has finally come together. I read that kidman has taken her daughter to the movie set, you know to show her month old the sets and scenes she's shooting! And for this ultimate OZ PR story, who do you think got the early scoop from inept team kidman of this obvious story plant? You guessed it, JJ, GG and People.com all have early posts on it. And good god, kidman is so concerned about anyone getting a photo of the kid, shes carrying her competely engulfed, hanging from her neck on her chest like a sack of potatoes.

http://www.celebrity-gossip.net/celebrities/hollywood/nicole-kidman-takes-sunday-rose-to-the-set-206068/

And look who's there beside her for the photo op, the orb...so it's mama, papa and...a sack of potatoes... on set for their close ups...she better hope no one mistakes her baby for a pinata... but of course first thought that comes to mind, is, is this kid getting any air in that potato sack?

maclen said...

...ps...

..or should the headline be..."It's daddy...mommy...and "mummy"...

(couldnt resist the bad pun!) Poor kid, kidman has truly transformed into "waco jacko"... most normal moms would use a baby stroller or a baby carrier... first photo of ethan hawk with new baby in public showed him pushing the kid in a stroller... but the always publicty mongering kidman is now actually using her baby as a fashion accessory!... no doubt kidman will be "wearing" her baby to her next movie premiere....

notachance said...

maclen - in this case you shouldn't be making fun of the "sack". Those baby slings are a better way to carry the baby. Check this link and see the who's who

http://www.mykarmababy.com/pages/Celebritybabyslings.php

Geez, if Keith were pushing Sunday in a stroller you'd be bashing NK for NOT carrying her in her arms or a sling.

notachance said...

i forgot about this car.....didn't he drive it in his DGB video?


doublewide - the car in the video was much older than the one he bought (90's).

Tara said...

well most normal moms would have already shown you the baby..

I also like on some sites that they cut Keith out of the pictures so its just Kidman and her dad..

Keith looks like he is back from a three day bender or just got up

maclen said...

Tara said...
"well most normal moms would have already shown you the baby.."

Yes, tara I expect the facial "veils" to come out any day now... and yes, I could be mistaken about the potato sack...perhaps they are actually returning from lunch, where they went out for seafood...and kidman simply forgot to remove her lobster bib. Make no mistake, this kid will make her public debut on a magazine cover when it's time for kidman to shill her next movie...that is what she was conceived for.

Imahick said...

She is not using the sling correctly. The baby should be carried higher up, next to her breast (heartbeat) and with a 'air hole'. Everytime she walks, she's bumping the baby and a five week old baby should not be in the bottom of a sling like that. It's scary to look at.

Does anyone else think that Sunday Rose has put on 15 lb ... it looks like a six month old not a five week old in that sling? Really...that is a big baby hanging there infront of her crotch.

It looks like Sunday is an accessory ... not a baby. NK looks stiff and uncomfortable. Me thinks this is the first attempt at looking motherly ... it's not working, in case you're reading this, NK.

doublewide said...

doublewide - the car in the video was much older than the one he bought (90's).


ok thanks....i could have sworn the one in the video had some kind of significance.

anyway, the carrier might be ok, but can the baby breathe? my daughter had one and the head was somewhat exposed......doesn't matter

NK is still pimping the poor thing out IMO

CJ said...

"Did Keith ever own a Porsche?"

I'm honored you'd think I'd know, thank you! I don't think he ever owned one, no. He has driven, and been photographed, in one however. One date night / photo op (I think in NY and I think while they were still dating off the top of my head but I could be wrong) KUNK was seen getting into a shiny red porsche after having dinner at whatever restaurant. My guess is that's where the Porsche reference came from. They were out of town and I always assumed it was a rental or loaner. Maybe a toy NK got KU to play with to lure him in to her web? I think he was visiting her on the set at the time. I guess for Fur... Anyway, why would KU drive his personal car from Nashville to NY (or Boston or somewhere in that area) to take her out to eat. That just doesn't make sense.

On a side note, George Jones bought KU's beloved Impala. Several other offers were made but KU turned them down when presented to him by the agent selling the car for him. Made me wonder at the time if George was going to hold on to it for him and maybe sometime down the road, say after the divorce, maybe KU will buy it back from him. I have no proof that's the plan, just my opinion based on what I know.

CJ said...

Just saw the GG photo's. Seriously, could Keith be walking any further away from Nic and her dad? He's barely still in the photo frame. Oh wait, maybe that was his point, to not be photographed with Nic and her dad. Darn wide lense cameras. He doesn't have a hat on. He usually wears a hat when he expects rats to be following them.

I don't see a purse in the photos. Maybe the sling is so big because she put her purse in with the baby for ease of carrying?

Aren't they cute arranged by height from shortest to tallest?

Posted today at http://www.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/custom/today/bal-to.reimer12aug12,0,3400188.column. Does she know something we don't? Has KUNK changed their minds? Anna, hear anything? Or does she mean in Oct or Nov during promotion for Australia?

"I have read where these magazines have found that middle-class mothers really identify with celebrity moms, and that it is worth the $5 million Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are going to get from an Australian magazine for pictures of their baby, Sunday."

Your thoughts?

CJ said...

Color me confused. VERY confused.
www.pr-inside.com/actress-nicole-kidman-news-bio-r750398.htm
posted a NK biography today. A biography. Of NK. Is a news story today?!? Again, WHY? This site usually posts stories like "LeAnn Rimes hubby tried to poison NK" and " STARS TO PAY TRIBUTE TO TROOPS". Why post a biography as a news story today? Was it just to give her equal face time with Tom because they ran an article on him today as well? "Film fans will have to wait to see TOM CRUISE's much-anticipated cameo in new war comedy TROPIC THUNDER - because movie bosses are refusing to leak images to the media." What in the world is pr-inside.com thinking? Any insights?

CJ said...

What's up with Kidman's dad? Nic was "out of the country" when he had his heart surgery. He stayed in Oz to look after Antonia's kids while she and Janell came to be with Nic during Sunday's birth. (Because the new Nashville houses, all 3 of them, aren't big enough to handle 4 kids, 5 adults, and a baby? Please. If Shane can bring his two kids to TN for Thanksgiving to meet Nic and her family I think the nieces and nephews could have come for Sunday's birth but that's just my opinion.) Maybe dad didn't want to come and keeping the kids was his excuse? We know Antonia went home four days after Sunday's arrival. I assume, but don't know, that their mom went with her. We didn't see her get off the plane with KUNK last week but she could have come back with them and ridden in one of the decoy cars. My point is NK and her dad haven't seemed incredibly close this year. Until today when she invites him to the set of her movie re-shoots. Was he there for any of the movie filming? Um, don't think so. Keith was but I don't remember Dr. Kidman being there. No mom, no sis, no nieces and nephews, no Keith's family. Just hubby and dad. Why trot him out for the photogs now? Is it just to show the public "Everything is fine between me and dad!" (because lots of people questioned her being in the US for no major reason when he had his heart surgery - a big, major deal) or is something else going on?

doublewide said...

CJ, thanks for the info

i have no idea what is going on with the pics of the baby or the NK bio????
