Nicole Urban: Bringing Sexy Back

I understand that there was a flurry of activity last week when there was a blurb in the news "alerts" that Nicole Urban was "impressed" by Keith Urban's Playgirl spread. I laughed out loud at that image. Think about it, Nicole sitting in her40-watt sitting room with cigarette smoke billowing around her looking at an article that was published almost a decade ago. If you haven't seen the photos you aren't missing much; Keith with a guitar over the jewels, and with a black silk robe on. Frankly, I saw more when the out takes made it to the internet about four years ago. The article was about that stuff they think women want to hear but really doesn't say much. We learn that he was a member of the mile high club and he has had sex in a hammock. Wow. Keith has said at various times that he regretted it or felt it was something he wanted to do at the time. All in all it is an old story except for some reason it has come back. The question to answer is why?

First, they make it about Nicole, and it shouldn't be. At the time that this article was done Keith was with another woman. But like everything anymore about Keith Urban it’s always about Nicole. Second, and most importantly Keith Urban has had his sexy sucked right out of him by his association with the wife. The result of this makes him not so much of a big deal for those who crave that which is considered young and sexy.

Keith Urban used to be sexy. From 2002 to 2005 many women had their fantasies fulfilled by the sexy motorcycle riding blond guitar slinger from Australia. Of course this was an image. We knew little about him. He kept his private life private. Part of what attracted Nicole was the image of Keith Urban. Many say that is why she pursued him; because he was sexy. That died when they married. Look where he was before Nicole. He was in the sexiest man in the world issue of People. He was often voted Country Music’s sexiest man. After he married, it ended, and that shows in his record sales. Then add to that the nauseating discussion of his private life. Who cares about these two? What about the music? Then she dressed him like a clown. Yes, she dressed him. He looked like a little slug banker. And most of the worst outfits were worn at his events. His unique style worked for him but Nicole hasn't taken that away and that his hurt him.

So why the Playgirl story now? Because Keith Urban needs to be appealing to keep up with the youngsters who seem to be taking over. One of his tour mates is the biggest draw in the United States. Keith has to keep the people in the seats for his part of the show. If the first two singles are any indication, he is trying to appeal to the youth market. While Sweet Thing has hit number one it isn't considered a classic, nor nowhere near his best effort. Just a little ditty to get played on the radio. If Keith Urban wants to leave an impression, it’s not going to be about appealing to the kids nor dropping his pants. Perhaps if he puts an effort into writing good strong music all of this would be irrelevant. We hope the new CD will show the promise of his earlier efforts long before he ever met Nicole.

I don't think he's trying to do anything, she just can't stand to have anything in his past not associated with her in some way. She needs to own him hook line and sinker.

Gee Umyths when will you ever learn. That some of us already know the details you're leaving out of your blogs. Like the fact that a tab, a British one no less (those are the most infamous for just making things up) is the one "reporting" this. And they claim that Keith talked to them...yeah right. And pigs fly. Keith already said he wouldn't do it again several years ago. So the rag conveniently has back up for the story and then adds in the little bit of humor to make it seem authentic.

Why don't you stick with the real issues, like how Nicole is completely ruining Keith Urban's life. Kind of hard when there's no actual proof after what, 3 or 4 years. The fact that you don't like Nicole or Keith or Keith's new music doesn't cut it as evidence either.

Certainly when I first had commented on this silly PR shilling piece of tripe about a week ago that was my impression...ramping up PR for the orbs cd and tour. Just as the previous story of taylor swift, who will be opening for the orb at a few shows, made comments that not just the orb, but also kidman were such "everyday people" ...(apologies to sly stone!). Why do you think the orb is struggling...kidman has entangled her own tarnished and loser image onto the orbs. They are now one underachieving, underperforming "powerless" couple that are just a news cycle stain. Sure the orb can get a teeny bopper ditty up the charts...but his past album sales have taken a sharp and noticable decline...sales of about half of his previous album...I dont expect much from his next one. Kidman's "HUGE" aussie passion piece film fizzled at the theaters, I dont expect the 41 yr old orbs passion piece album dedicated to his "teen romance" with 41 yr old kidman to do any better. When people try to desperately hold on to their long past youth... you end up like michael jackson!

It is possible to be an actor and have a private life.

It is possible to give an interview and not talk about your private life.

The problem is that when you start talking about your life you give the press permission to talk about it and if necessary more than likely, make things up.

When was the last time you read ANYTHING about Michelle Pfeiffer's love life or for that matter Matt Dillon's? Sandra Bullock? Halle Berry seems very happy with her guy whatshisname, wouldn't really know though because she doesn't talk about it.

You can argue that these people aren't HUGE stars like Kidman, however I personally feel all the above mentioned actors are ageing like Kidman and have huge potential as character actors, unlike Kidman. The sort of star Kidman is, is the kind that serves up her "private' life her miscarriages and her 'shock' divorce for people to read with their morning wheaties! This is why Kidman is 'tabloid fodder'.

This piece is made up fluff, but there are movie stars that don't get this sort of attention (Jodie Foster) and there are movie stars who do (Brangelina).

It's not like Jodie Foster hasn't had a sensational life; a U.S president was almost killed to impress her, she's a lesbian whose had a huge Hollywood career, and had children with her gay best friend who was dying, need I go on? Can you imagine how many papers Foster could have sold if she had ever agreed to talk about any of this? How many potential buts on movie seats? There you go, Foster is PRIVATE. Kidman is NOT.

Kidman had the chance to go another way after Cruise, she could have had a very private life AND a career. The dresses she wears to premieres, the interviews she gives, even the men she dates and marries (rock stars, actors, D list wannabee billionaires, country stars), it's all about getting this sort of attention, where people are making crap up about you.

I'm sorry but I'm a little incredulous that people still make excuses for Urban. The guy was a publicity whore WAY before Kidman.
Sorry but a private guy doesn't pose for Playgirl! He doesn't even talk about regretting it! He doesn't lie about how his sobriety while snorting lines of coke.
He doesn't talk about his wife, or where he took her or for that matter his fantasises about her. He wouldn't talk to her over the radio for thousands to here, he wouldn't even dedicate songs to her at concerts. If Urban was REALLY private, it wouldn't matter how much Kidman wanted to make it about her, he wouldn't let her.

I had a friend who dated a well known actor here in Sydney for a few years, he wouldn't take her to premieres, awards or industry parties in fact nowhere that a camera would be. He really loved her and didn't want any pressure on their relationship from 'outside sources'. My friend at first was disappointed about missing out on wearing the 'pretty dresses' but eventually came to see what a blessing his decision was to their relationship.

I see no reason why if Urban is the man many of you think he is, he couldn't stand up to Kidman and say no photos, no interviews, no mentions, period.

Kidman can only be responsible for her own media downfall, I'm afraid Urban is responsible for his own. It's really one of three things;

Urban is a trained monkey who does everything because Kidman tells him too!

If you believe that then don't waste another breath on him. The guy's a weak, spineless, sniveling loser. Why would you care if he spontaneously combusts tomorrow?

OR

Urban is a willing participant in all this garbage!

Again why waste time on him? Who cares about his new album, or his concerts or what he wears? This is a guy who has lied to you every step of the way with or without Kidman, don't defend him don't criticise him, forget him. Why would a turd like that deserve your money, admiration or for that matter time and energy?

OR

Somewhere in between?

Please! He's not Switzerland! Can he really be half whipped puppy and half dastardly scheming liar?

It's just too easy to blame Kidman for this, when I don't think she's really got anything to do with his lacklustre shows or losing his 'sexy'.

Urban is to blame for all of that.

Bstnactrs said...

I agree with Anna - it's Keith's fault.


I will also agree that I do not like the "formal" look on Keith - the suits, etc...I prefer the 2004/2005 look which was indeed, sexy but, he is older and he is now attending more formal events such as the Oscars.

Nicole is probably influencing his dress at these events as well..."you're wearing THAT? Um, no...get that suit I bought you"

I do have to disagree with the comments about "Sweet Thing" - I know a lot of people don't like the song, but I do and, no matter how you feel about it, he hasn't had a number 1 in what? 4 years? So, can't we give him kudos for that?...it's about time...it does show that at least he is still capable of putting out hits...isn't that a good thing?

Imahick said...

I agree about Sweet Thing. Keith is not known for writing literary masterpieces put to music. He writes radio friendly songs and he has never apologized for that. He seems to have found his mojo again and that gives me hope that this new CD will be better than the last. Mind you, I didn't think that the last one was that bad... It was no Golden Road, but I still love Stupid Boy.

The thing I like about Sweet Thing is that the arrangement is fresh and new. The music is often better than the lyric in his songs, IMO.

Bstnactrs said...

I agree imahick - if you look at the songs Keith wrote personally in the past (alone), with the exception of a few, they are not deep at all - they are pretty simplistic - but the music is what I always appreciate.

I did not like all of LPATWCT, but I loved SB, really liked ITYS & UTTP...the rest were just ok but there were only a couple I didn't like at all and would skip over.

I know everyone hated GIRTT, but I have to say, I LOVED the rawness of it...it was a unique recording...when he released the "remix" - well, THAT sucked! It was much, much better with the slower tempo and lack of production.

I do wish he'd make another BH or GR but, he may be going in a different direction now...and, I know some here don't think this next album will be a success but...if ST is any indication, he just may succeed with DG.

And, I have to admit, even if I don't personally like the album as a whole, I would like to see that for him.

"It's just too easy to blame Kidman for this, when I don't think she's really got anything to do with his lacklustre shows or losing his 'sexy'.

Thank you Anna. This is exactly why I get on the skeptics about bashing NK for bringing him down. He has made his own choices, including the one to date NK and marry her. He knew exactly what he was getting into - this is the life he wanted. I think to him this means he made it.

Sweet Thing - not that it's a bad song, it's just not what I would expect from a MAN of 41.

Kiss A Girl - another good song for radio, but coming from a MAN of 41 it creeps me out. And the thought of grown women singing along to it does even further damage to my psyche...

Stupid Boy - shame he wasn't smart enough to make that decision to do this song - this was a really good song, lyrically & musically. Guess NK ain't so stupid now.... Real shame is that he is not capable of writing something this good.

As for Keith's attire at certain events - he needed someone to set him straight on what's appropriate. When he attended the gala thing in 2005 where he met her, it was a BLACK TIE affair - he chose to wear his shirt open down to mid chest. I thought that to be very inappropriate and offensive to the hosts. This clearly showed his arrogance towards others. It's one thing to dress the way you want to dress at country specific events, but when an event is formal you wear appropriate attire.

Ok, I'll get down now.

Lisa said...

Where are these Playgirl outtakes?!


Anyone? Anyone?

notachance said...

Really, I've never heard anyone talk about outtakes before.

Tara said...

why do I still think of myself as a fan of Keith Urban? Because I still like to watch him play live.

A440 said...

If you want to see all the Playgirl photos, simply Google them. They're very much around.

A440 said...

Keith has always been a very ambitious man who had no qualms about expediency. So why shouldn't that come into play when deciding whom to marry?

He wanted a trophy wife who was connected and wealthy. And he got it. The fact that she's not a total dog helps a bit, but basically he set his sights on a wife who could help him elevate himself.

So, as dismayed as I am by this marriage -- and his de-sexing, and his fluffy music -- I'm not surprised that it is still in force.

woriedmonkey said...

Bstnactrs... I'm with you on LPATWCT.

I LOVE Used to the Pain. IMO it's one of Keith's best lyrically and musically. Searing, adult, brilliantly performed... and probably so intensely good because he was in a more tortured place when he wrote it.

I do think Kiss a Girl is going to be a HUGE # 1 hit and am looking forward to My Heart is Open and especially
"When Summer Comes around " having heard snippets but also it sounds like there's quite a few fillers on DG.
It's funny... I don't think KU fits into the Country genre at all now. In fact he seems like a radio-oriented Pop artist. "Won't Let You Down' (which I happen to really like) seems to be one of those
quasi-generic songs that are used to soundtrack hot TV shows.... as is something like 'Shine'. Almost anyone could have written it. Still... noone, or very few can play like him and he is Fantastic still as a live performer. I've seen hundreds of bands, obscure and mega famous over the years and you can't manufacture what he has.


So while he has seemed to regress to a kind of simplistic boy-meets-girl type of radio friendly single which does seem a little lame in a man of 41, and he's not even 'cool' to like, I still can't help myself. I am going to see him live because he is an incredible performer and he makes me feel young and free again. Who give's a rat's arse about his private life when he's the fountain of (temporary) youth.
PS. I guess he's showing himself to be who he truly is.. not the hip outsider rebel ( that cougars love to love) but a mainstream pop artiste who could probably make a gazillion writing TV jingles but happens to be a genius guitar player/ melodist who is super sexy when he is performing... because he is a good looking fit virile guy at the peak of his powers and utterly confident and in his body when he is playing. If you are one of those who think 'meh' when you look at him , I challenge you not to find him sexy when he's putting on his swagga when performing.

By the way, Nicole who ? I just tune her out now.

woriedmonkey said...

And if not sexy... I challenge you not to find him compelling. He doesn't seem to hold anything back on stage and it is hard not to respond to that. I'm looking forward to seeing him negotiate some new material too....

Lisa said...

Trophy Wife.....


...really......

isnt that stretching a bit much??

cricket said...

He's still amazing at a live show. and LPTWCT had a few decent songs on it. It was nowhere near a GR or BH but everyone has a CD that isn't great in their career. The question is can he put out something better this time. He needs to just STFU about which songs are inspired by her because that turns people off. That's the reason a lot of people hated GIRTT. He just needs to leave her out of it. If he wants to tell her how much he loves her just do it at home in private. Nobody at a concert really gives a rat's ass.

Just wanted to highlight this section of the Blogger Content Policy... which you can find here...

http://www.blogger.com/content.g

...the section I want to highlight is this one...

PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION: We do not allow the unauthorized publishing of people's private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, Social Security Numbers, and driver's and other license numbers.

...and I'm sure, for starters if your picture is ever posted by this scumbag E! board malcontent with an attempt to match your true name and which state you live in to it with a malicious intent and intimidation...I'm sure that would qualify as pertaining to this policy. And also notice that Blogger.com has a "FLAG BLOG" link tab at the top of the page, (right next to "SEARCH BLOG")... to "Notify Blogger about objectionable content on this page"...do not allow yourself to be lulled into a false sense of security just because you may think this sockpuppeted slimeball is simply "harmless" and just being "juvenile"...the one psychotic lunatic who may be just looking for something just like that to "show those haters" and to "quiet those damned voices in their head" may read it and not be simply harmless or juvenile. And remember, this is a Bogger.com policy of these sites, and not a issue of trying to "silence your freedom of speech". So remember, this so called "harmless" juvenile is threatening to reveal your personal identity...simple names and states now, but you never know how much more will be dug up to esculate their sick twisted agenda ...dont wait for vandalizing...or a keyed car or a rock through your window to even cross your mind as to the reason behind it may be this sychphant. Again, if your photo is posted by this lowlife...flag the blog to Blogger.com...and if by chance you do begin to be personally harrassed over it, make sure you have a report, documentation...etc. Better to be safe than sorry...over this meaningless nonsense.

That is all.

realitycheck said...

Yeah maclen how appropriate this is coming from you. Trying to get the blog shut down before these skeptics get busted for the hypocrites and charlatans they really are. What are you afraid of? The large group of fans who know of the skeptics but don't know the complete reality behind them? I see 20+ people joining and that's just the ones in public view. Because the truth is about to come out. Not the private info like credit cards and adresses but what these ladies have been up to for years. Their pet project of trying to tear down a man and his wife and their cruelty to anyone who disagrees with them.

Just an fyi, many photos with evidence incriminating themselves have been posted for public view by their own hand. They should have known better, but then the skeptics are a very cocky bunch. Really you just have to know where to look to find them. You don't even need the UMR blog. But JB is doing a public service, combining all of it in one convenient place.

And you call it "meaningless nonsense" maclen lol I can tell you really don't think so. You're here way to much for me to believe that line.

Bstnactrs said...

"So remember, this so called "harmless" juvenile is threatening to reveal your personal identity..."



Nah. Based on her description of me and who she thinks I am, I, personally, cannot wait for her to reveal my true identity.

It's all a big joke mclean and you're worrying way, way too much and giving her way too much credit.

Why do you think none of us have done anything?

We know who it is and we know what she has.

I appreciate the concern but it's not necessary...really...it's just entertainment...like a Soap Opera.



"I see 20+ people joining and that's just the ones in public view."



And that's only the ones who registered to follow the blog! There's way more tuning in to see the next episode.



"Because the truth is about to come out. Not the private info like credit cards and adresses but what these ladies have been up to for years.


Oh the irony! I love it! hehehehe.


"Their pet project of trying to tear down a man and his wife and their cruelty to anyone who disagrees with them."



Wow.




JustBeginning: You're gonna need to change your name to "WorkingOnIt" 'cause you're "Coming Soon" promo has been up there for a while...post the link again when it's actually updated...thanks.




"I don't think KU fits into the Country genre at all now. In fact he seems like a radio-oriented Pop artist."


I agree - it seems as if he is moving in another direction which I am a bit disappointed about b/c I loved all of his old stuff but, as long as he keeps putting some music out that I don't mind listening to, it's fine with me. I'm not the avid fan I used to be but I still like to listen to his voice.

Imahick said...

I find this whole thing to be an interesting exercise in psychology. JB is clearly someone who was friends with some of the skeptics and actually visited skeptic sites, so must have been a "hater" herself. Now...she's absolving herself of her sins by "squealing" on the skeptics in punishment for our crimes.

It sounds to me like she's a bit left of center, if you get my drift.

She's not the only one -I love how RC & company are waiting with baited breath for the "incriminating evidence"...lol

What do they think JB is gonna post?

Pics of us in compromising positions with politicians?

Snorting/shooting some drug?

Mug shots & police reports?

Court documents detailing stalking charges with pics of KUNK at the trial as well?

LOL.

And just what do they think this "incriminating evidence" is gonna do TO us?

Sorry, JB's "evidence" is just not that "incriminating" and none of you are that important.

Besides, what could you possibly be thinking about us based on her so-called "evidence" that you haven't already thought anyway?

We know how you feel about us...you've made it clear...so what is JB gonna do that we haven't already done to ourselves to make you think badly of us?

Get over yourselves already.

We don't care. Don't you get that by now? After years of throwing your sticks & stones, have we ever gone away?

No. And we won't...not b/c of you and certainly not b/c of JB.

It's called Reality Folks said...

Yeah, Just Beginning...Come on already! Where's the pictures and the so-called "evidence" (of what, who knows)? We're waiting for this trial to begin. LOL What a f**king lunatic and the lunatic monkeys are following right behind her, just as I suspected. Keithy -you got these people on your list right? If not, I think we can provide names and pictures. :)

nomorefan said...

I will state for the record with my hand over the Bible, yes, I did give lap dances to those politicans, but I did not inhale.

I have done NOTHING crazy compared to Urban's ultimate fans! Which reminds me of another error in JB's BS. Sorry, that wasn't me sitting out by the buses until . . . what did you say . . . 2AM??? You must either be making up lies or have me confused for someone else. JB is slacking big time in the credibility department.

It's called Reality Folks said...

Well, I'm not going to admit to lap dances, but I will admit to inhaling. But, that was a long time ago, so please don't hold it against me JB! HE HE

maclen said...

So apparently, a "cabal" of disgruntled E! "boarders", seemingly having just been "discouraged" over there at E! of who knows what sort of behavior... have decided to bring their childish little "threats and counter-threats" of outing personal info to the Urban Myths comments section. And what I am saying is anyone, who is not into the enjoyment of this pretty disgusting little game of threat and counter threat over the blog threads, that is...would be well advised to flag the blog and have Bogger.com review the blog for possible policy violation. Ask Anna over at Forehead if she believed being harrassed or threatened, or "insinuatations" being made by email is any "fun"...

It's called Reality Folks said...

maclen: I'd be willing to bet the same person or people who are threatening Anna, are the ones playing the Urban Myths "Revealed" game, and are the same ones who have sent threatening PM's to people on the E board. They're all a bunch of lunatics.

maclen said...

So, kidman has resurfaced with another offical arranged photo op courtesy of GG...

http://www.celebrity-gossip.net/celebrities/hollywood/nicole-kidman-and-sunday-rose-nashville-playdate-211821/

..seems kidman has decided to join the ranks of celebs flogging their kids for the paps...again despite only a few months ago just dreading...almost in tears of the dreaded paps getting just one shot of her baby. So is kidman in prep for the rabbit hole film in a few months, as claimed by the writer of the play...perhaps the filming of it coincides with that announced trip on behalf of the UN this summer? So did kidman call into GG for the start of photo ops with the kid to shoot off getting back into the production of another flopping piece of celluloid?

Bstnactrs said...

Oh mclean...I do appreciate the fact that you are concerned...I really do, but like I said, it is unnecessary - and I'm one of JB's targets...so I should know.

And it is being discussed here b/c this is where it is being discussed...even you have partaken several times in the discussion.

Anna's experience is different - the person who threatened her, did so directly as well as on the blog and also literally threatened her children.

JB is only threatening to post pics & stories. I do not consider that the same thing.

This person is a coward...unlike Anna's stalker, JB hasn't made an effort to correspond with us personally via email or pm...so...there you go.

If she was threatening, she'd be threateneing us directly...not writing a blog that is full of inaccuracies.

Sticks & stones mclean, sticks & stones.

If you feel so strongly about it, feel free to report the blog yourself.

Sorry we disappoint you b/c we're not concerned for our lives but IMO, posting stories and pics from KU concerts is not exactly life-threatening.

And as for showing people our identity with pics - how do you think she got the pics to begin with? B/c the posters themselves posted them somewhere! If these pics were "incriminating evidence" of anything that could harm them, do you honestly think they'd share them on a message board?

Besides, most of the people here and on the various boards we post with have all met each other and known each other for years or, at the very least, shared pics with each other anyway, so it's not a big secret who a lot of people are to anyone who's been around for a while. JB has the "identities" mixed up anyway so technically, she's "outing" posters but not the posters she claims we are...so, in the end, people who believe her are going to believe that we're people we're not who have doen things we haven't done and no one gets hurt b/c it's NOT true.

You see why I'm not worried?

Well, maybe the ones who believe her will get hurt by it someday when they find out who she really is and what the real truth is but they'll get over it.

If people like RC want to believe JB is telling the truth and revealing incriminating evidence, so be it. I could post evidence to prove JB wrong but I don't care b/c it's just not that important to me what a bunch of strangers on a blog or board that have no impact on my life think. And besides, they'll just say I made it up to counter JB and go on believing her - what's the point? I don't do pi$$ing contests.

Three of us have already tried to tell you all that she is full of crap and we don't care and we're the ones she wrote about...so if it doesn't bother us, it shouldn't bother you.

I think some of you are taking JB way too seriously - but I am sure she's pleased about that.

She started out an obscure blogger who couldn't get a single hit for 6weeks and now, not only does she have an audience, she's got registered followers and has even convinced some that she's got all kinds of TRUE information on posters of KUNK boards.

Again, the irony! It's so funny. I cannot wait until the real revelations are posted.

"maclen: I'd be willing to bet the same person or people who are threatening Anna, are the ones playing the Urban Myths "Revealed" game..."

...surely, reality folks... this self described "coward"... "hiding behind a thousands usernames"...is attempting to peddle their vindictive need for retribution over here at Urban Myths. You let a sick and disgusting infection like that simply fester and continue, it will only get worse, and these "lunatics" will no doubt just get more outrageous and damaging.

maclen said...

Seriouly Bstnactrs, whether or not the claims are true or not, is besides the point...certainly besides my point. The threats alone should be enough to give anyone pause...and if it is in fact a violaton of Blogger.com policy, it should be noted....you may believe it's not serious and just laugh it off...I do not. I dont know who is who, what is what... I find the behavior repulsive. And I will not ignore it or continue to say so here.

It IS harmless and we should know better than you or anyone else.

nomorefan said...

I'm interested in knowing what all the marks are on Suro's face.

I wonder what Keithy would think of all of his fanatics when they make these threats and thinking they are revealing some dirty dark secrets about the skeptics? Unlike Keithy, I don't think his ultimate fans are so "balanced" or "earthed".

It's called Reality Folks said...

I don't think Keithy thinks they're balanced or earthed. I think he knows who they all are as he sees them at NUMEROUS shows right up front where he can see them. I suspect that's why the Monkeys don't get any good seats through his presales; he wants them as far away from him as possible. ;)

"Like I said, if you think her pics & fan fics are threatening and damaging, then report it."

Well, fortunately, I am not a target of this scumbag's blog, so I'm not going to report that my personal info is being threatened to be outed by the blogger site if it is in fact not being outed. But I would advise anyone being "outed" or threatend of being on a blogger site to flag it. You dont have a problem with it Bstnactrs, that's your prerogative...and with all due respect, you do not tell me that "you know better than me or anyone else"...and expect me to STFU...you can recommend it... ask it...pray for it...but I decide what I post on this or any blog.

THAT is our perogative as well.

We've all spoken to each other about it and figured out who it is and what she "has on us" and 3 of us have already posted about it not being accurate info let alone damaging.

I don't how much clearer this can be.



"with all due respect, you do not tell me that "you know better than me or anyone else"..."


mclean, with all due respect right back at ya I, along with others, were the ones attacked on that blog - it's about US - not YOU - so yes, I/we do know better than anyone else.

We know what is true and what isn't about what JB posted and what she is going to post in the future and that is why we are not worried and I honestly do not understand the insistance that we should be. That's up to us, don't you think?

Geesh.

nomore, could those "marks' just be splotches from the weather? Don't babies get that before they are able to regulate their body temp. appropriately due to sensitivity?

maclen said...

No it isnt...you dont have a problem with it, fine...but I will not back off commenting on it on here, or any other blog on blogger. Obviously I am not attempting to speak to you...but I will advise any other google account member who may ever be targeted by a demented lowlife with these kind of threats...And fine, Bstnactrs, exclude yourself from my comments about that site, if as you say, you dont want to give it any more attention than is nessesary...but for someone who "don't do pi$$ing contests."...you seem to be smack dab into that 150 post thread 2 posts ago... going back and forth over that blog site...and for someone who is "supposedly" being targeted by that sleazebag...you seem very adament and insistant that I back off...so which is it?...do not give it attention..or endlessly comment on it...calling for a "outing of info...you dare them?" So....am i sensing a little bit of "cross promotion" of blogs here? Endless usernames trying to branch out into more blogs... for commentors or readers? Boy the bile is really getting thick in here... and this is the last time I will "explain" my motives for my comments...I will comment where I feel appropriate...as usual...

Bstnactrs said...

I'm sorry - did I miss something?

I would like to know where any of my statments tell you to back off, stfu or not to comment.

I NEVER wrote that.

Obviously, we're all discussing it so why would I tell you not to? And as if that would stop you anyway...lol.

It appears you have seriously misinterpreted something.

I was only trying to get the point across that those of us who were written about are not concerned enough to report it - that's all.

You seemed to be insisting that we do it and I was explaining that we're not b/c we don't feel it is necessary. And since we are the targets, we have the right to choose not to.

I thanked you for your concern and thought it appropriate to explain our reasons for deciding to leave the blog alone since you feel so strongly about it. I was actually trying to aleviate your concerns by explaining that the so-called information is bogus.

Relax. Geez.

Wow, I've never seen Bstnactrs post so many comments on one topic as she just did the last few days regarding that blogger.

It looks pretty obvious to me that the blogger certainly hit the mark. I have long suspected Bstnactrs is not an actress as she claims, and that blogger's description of her just confirmed my suspicion. :-)

Yes indeed she does choice.

Anna, I do think that is Keith's fault.. he is a big boy and he didn't like how this is all unfolding he needed to be man enough to put his foot down.

I do like that he once again seems to be taking an interest in his career. Although not his strongest songs I do like ST and KAG..but it will be strange to be singing along that I wanna Kiss A Girl in concert..lol I hope for his sake this makes it to #1 too. I am looking forward to my few concerts. I wonder if Thank You will be this tours GIRTT

I love that we are seeing little of kidman.

Urban Myths said...

Thanks for posting the link to the pics today, maclen.

It's such a shame that neither mum nor daughter look comfortable with each other. Isn't it amazing that the paps have been camping out at the Gymboree in Nashville, just waiting for this shot? Hmmmmmm, no. But you'd think Kidman would at least comb her hair for her latest paid photoshoot.

realitycheck said...

Sonora, bstnactrs is an actress...of sorts. You wouldn't have seen her in anything listed on her acting resume. Several very very small-time films, local stuff really. Which is all well and good, that's how many actors start out. But for the skeptics to pretend that she is the go-to person on the E! board for acting/Hollywood/Kidman and the like is a big joke. Being out in LA for 2 years, as she claims, won't necessarily get you the low-down on the big time celebs. And how convenient she managed to align herself with people willing to talk about Nicole when she is a skeptic. Being out in LA trying to get a career started for two years is nothing and you more that likely will not get connected to anybody who is anybody in that time. Lets say she heard some things...its probably 3rd or 4th hand talk. Not exactly reliable stuff. The skeptics accept what she says since she doesn't like Kidman. Surprise surprise. Just like they accept the amateur astrologer because she's a skeptic. Bring on the tarot card reader and numerologist. As long as they are a skeptic their posts are acceptable!

What's supposed to be on that web site? I just went there and I don't see anything at all. Am I looking in the wrong place? So far it looks about as exciting as one of Granny Freeze's movies

Urban Myths said...
"Thanks for posting the link to the pics today, maclen."

Your very welcome Urban Myths...as soon as you see the photos...of a very calm, relaxed kidman staring nonchalantly at the paps camera...with her kid no doubt...you can basically deduce that it was a planned photo op, with either JJ or in this case, Gossip girl... otherwise, with any other papz organization she would be scrambling and scurrying in a harried attempt to cover her baby...and get out of there asap. but since its a paid hack, GG, take 12...15 pics. And surely, kidman does seem to be lax in her botox and facial procedures, she's looking pretty "splochy" in the face...as well as typically, as you mention URban Myths...scruffley do-ed in the hair department as well.

maclen said...

So, apparently kidman is now on a photo op rampage...heres another one... I found at this site first...what? JJ not available at the moment for the phone call?...

http://socialitelife.celebuzz.com/archive/2009/03/12/nicole_kidman_pregnancy_glow.php?img=0&gfmt=m#alpha-inner

...and apparently, it's pregnancy watch part 2...or does this make part 3? So which is it? "The Pillow effect"...the shirt flailing out underneath the cotton pull over...or is she all set to make her Pr shill a liar once again, and is expecting again. Because I for one, would not be surprised to certainly expect inept team kidman to not just be obvious and flagrantly mediocre in their PR hackery...but be once again called out for being so disengenous. Well, I for one got a big kick out of that first pic... in the true light of day, which is not very flattering to kidman, you can clearly see the recent result of her "cheek implant touch up"... slightly swollen and splotchy red cheeks, along with the chin touch up...which was of course in prep for that two day shoot in Rome, in which she was trying to do her best brigette bardot impersonation.

maclen said...

...ps..

Ha! Let me amend my last comment on the puffy and splotchy cheeked kidman photo ops... with further info, it seems JJ did in fact get these photos as well...got to acknowledge the consistancy of inept team kidman"s hackery...gg and jj in one day...something big must be coming up!

Maclen, the latest photo also appearedl on Perez Hilton. You can always count on Perez to slightly adjust them accordingly. Wonder what the devil would think?

Ha! That is hilarious, choice... I especially like the contrast of the horns on kidman and a halo on her baby! ...but at least if the "baby will not grow up to look like her botox mom"... If youll recall, choice hilton ran hot and cold last year over kidman...seems about a couple of months before kidman was due for delivery, hilton got an "exclusive" leak from a "close kidman insider" that she was going to have a boy...and for the next month or month and a half...hilton layed off the nasty post's about kidman...I even checked hilton's previous months post's on kidman and he was averageing about a nasty post a week, then after the leak, nothing for about a month...and then...kidman had a girl! and hilton returned to the nasty post's again!

You ask me why I keep coming back? This is way better than late night tv. You guys are cracking me up! I don't know whether the visit the other blog to know what she's writing to keep up on this conversation. I'm afraid I'm going to have to, didn't really want to, but. . .

That's entertainment!

Bstnactrs said...

"Sonora, bstnactrs is an actress...of sorts."


NOW I am an actress (of sorts)? LOL. But, JB says I'm not and I thought she had THE REAL TRUTH about me?



"You wouldn't have seen her in anything listed on her acting resume. Several very very small-time films, local stuff really. Which is all well and good, that's how many actors start out."


Yup – actually, if you read my posts & ask my skeptic friends, you’ll find that this is exactly what I always claimed to be and never anything more. No news here. Although, you would have seen me in things on my resume but not very many…that’s true.


"Being out in LA trying to get a career started for two years is nothing and you more that likely will not get connected to anybody who is anybody in that time."



Wow...sounds like you know all about living out in LA & working as an actress. Have you done it also? Ever been on a movie set RC? We should chat then ‘cause I bet we have loads to talk about! I have lots of stories about lots of…not just Nicole. You’d be surprised.

Oh wait, no you wouldn’t ‘cause you wouldn’t believe it…’cause I’m a skeptic and all I do is lie…

Well, then maybe you should network with other actors out in LA and see what they think and ask them about their experiences in LA in just their FIRST YEAR.



"But for the skeptics to pretend that she is the go-to person on the E! board for acting/Hollywood/Kidman and the like is a big joke."



This is the best statement yet… Interesting that you & Senora seem to know all about my “status” among the skeptics – have you two ever even read the E board? LOL.

I’ve never been the “go to” girl for anything on the boards, but how lovely you think they think that of me! I may get asked an opinion about the business or how things work regarding contracts, etc…but that doesn’t make me the “go to” girl for all things Hollywood & Nicole. Like JB, you’re giving me way too much credit here.



"The skeptics accept what she says since she doesn't like Kidman."



Reality Check accepts what JB says b/c she doesn’t like the skeptics. Surprise. Surprise.

Look RC, some of the skeptics themselves don’t believe me either…that’s cool. I’m not sure why JB picked me along with the others honestly but I guess I p’d her off at some point along the way…’cause really, I’m not the big, important skeptic you make me out to be and I never have been. The others can confirm it. But I am flattered that you & JB think I'm that important and that out of all the people that post, you & JB single me out to try & discredit. I must really bug you guys.

realitycheck said...

bstnactrs, you claim you were an extra on Malice. So what. And that was how long ago? Doesn't mean you know the truth about any of this.

We aren't singling you out. You came here and posted, and you were part of JB's first blog. Naturally at least one of us would comment. If Mary or Sue or the others would come out of the woodwork and decide to post at length about themselves I'd respond to them too.

Some don't think what you have done with your acting career is much or that you can call yourself an actress. You aren't a full-time actress, you have admitted that. And in some peoples eyes that means you aren't one.

If you aren't in any mainstream productions that we can all see, many will believe, and rightfully so, you aren't connected enough to know anything REAL about Nicole or certianly anything concerning KUNK. And we all know there's a big gossip mill running in LA within the industry. That means even the well-connected movers and shakers might not know the truth about everyone either. There's plenty of half-truths and total bs in that town being spread around every day.

nomorefan said...

RC - why don't you dig deep like your beautiful, beautiful princess and look for me previous post on here? I came out of the woodwork on here days ago. I have nothing to hide. Most of the stuff JB posted about me wasn't even things about me. It appears JB's information on all of us skeptics is so mixed up. JB posted a picture of a skeptic and associated her with a screen name of pier7girl - WRONG!

If you want to bash at least be credible - ya'll are looking like nothing but fools right now!

nomorefan said...

Another comment to realitycheck - you say Bstnactrs isn't an actress because she may not have a full-time acting job. I see how your logic works now. It's sort of like Skank saying she takes on projects because she does them for the sake of the "art" even though they are all flops!

realitycheck said...

Once again you have it wrong. Trying to turn every response to a KUNK fan's post into a slam against Kidman isn't going to work btw. We can all see through that tired old technique. I posted some might be of the opinion (I didn't mean myself) she's not a real actress based on her lack of starring in recognizable projects. And reading her posts where she is so certain about Kidman some may get the impression she's full-time working in the industry with all kinds of contacts and connections, possibly a known name or a working character actress. Only if you've been here a while and read ALL her posts (especially the ones on E!) and seen her resume online, would you know the whole story.

Imahick said...

Wow, RC. You seem pretty invested in this whole thing to have read every post that every skeptic and non-skeptic alike has written, in order to correct all of our opinions.

That seems to be a big responsibility!

realitycheck said...

No, I've just been around a long time, like many of the skeptics.

nomorefan said...

I know Imahick - isn't it kind of scary - almost stalkerish that realitycheck searched out Bstnactrs on the internet? I'm beginning to wonder about realitycheck's mental stability. There are a few famous actors that came out of my area from local theaters. They never performed on a stage in NYC or LA. Now they are in the movies. All it takes is one time for that important person to discover you.

The skeptics are called bitter for their negative posts on the internet about Mr. Nicole Kidman. Look at the sick extent the monkeys/bunnies will go in order to stalk out skeptics that they don't like. Again, ask yourselves, what would Keithy do?

realitycheck said...

bstnactrs gave away her location in her screen name and gave out her name on here. I didn't stalk, all it takes is a couple of Google searches to confirm my suspicions. She wasn't the well-connected expert she wanted us to believe she was.

Stalking is more on your end. Using a trip you won from a country radio station to try and get dirt on Keith? I'd bet the radio station would appreciate knowing you used the trip for such purposes. Keith needs to watch out for you. And no I didn't stalk, I got the facts from someone else, who said you revealed that info all by yourself.

So to the skeptics and supporters, ask yourselves this? Why do they want to paint me and others as crazies. I'm only pointing out the truth. Because they don't want to be seen for what they really are. Obssessed nasty people who collect story after story, pic after pic of KUNK. They've got dates, places, names memorized. If they have such fulfilling lives why are they doing this? Why are they going after people like me? Why can't they just post on their skeptic boars and leave the rest of the world alone?

Imahick said...

The funny thing RC...it's JB and obviously yourself who have collected the stories, the dates, the pictures about people who are NOT PUBLIC FIGURES. And you are willing to rip the NONPUBLIC figures to shreads ... doing exactly the same thing you are so horrified about, when the skeptics post the stories about KUNK.

Again...it's the most hipocritical of actions, in my opinion. I don't agree with the extremes that are posted publically about KUNK,but I do believe that they are public figures and some of their actions have almost asked for the skeptic's attention.

"Outing" skeptics on the internet (even though most of the content I saw on JB's site is inaccurate) is not normal. It shows some very disturbed and unstable thought processes in my opinion, as does the constant need to attack the posters.

Attack the message...justify what NK or Keith are doing. That's all fair game, but to constantly attack the posters shows that you don't have an argument except to attack the messenger. It actually tends to support the skeptics, because there is no counter argument offered.

nomorefan said...

OMG realitycheck - you are so f'ed up right now. I did not use a trip to find out any dirt on the Kidmans. Would you get your stories straight? I had no desire to seek out the Kidmans. I guess I was really digging up the dirt when I went down to a bar to get a drink and heard two employees talking. Yea, that's really digging deep. I was there for a short amount of time. Again, you are looking like a stalker!

inittowinit said...

I honestly don't get it - who cares if Bstnactrs has been a strong character lead or not? Who cares how NMF got to the places she did or that she won the trip? Who cares if someone says they saw something or heard something but really didn't? Aren't you intelligent enough to decipher what you want to believe on your own, RC? I know I certainly am.

When I hear the worshipers all talk about how great and graceful Nicole is, and then I see one of her movies, I am able to realize what's true. When I hear the worshipers talk about how loving she is and what a great mother she is, and then I see photos of her with her baby, never smiling or looking at her mama, I am able to realize what's true. When I hear the worshipers all talk about how supportive she is of her husband and what a great wife she is, then I see her falling asleep at his few shows she attended, making him the one to travel back and forth while she's filming and she never returns once to the US for him during her breaks, I am able to realize what's true. When I hear them support her, agreeing she doesn't use Botox, then I see pictures where her forhead looks like it's been run over by a steamroller, I am able to realize what's true. When I hear worshipers say how innocent she is, then I see numerous photo ops of her underwear, I'm able to realize what's true. When I hear them complain that Tom keeps her first children away from her, yet they appear so HAPPY with him, and dismal when they ever are with her, along with the fact that she constantly reminds the world they are her "adopted" children, I realize what's true. Because of all of this, I've ALWAYS known you were all dellusional. But I really honestly don't give a flying CRAP who you are in real life, or what motivates you to be this way. I think most skeptics feel the same. It doesn't surprise me in the least that you want to know who the skeptics are, really.

The reality is most of us happen to either love Keith Urban, or did at one time. We just don't love the lies, the charade, etc. And for the truth, we keep coming back. I happen to believe he is in this for a reason. I believe he wants to be there, but I just don't know why. This appears to be the most loveless marriage I've ever seen. I don't believe everything I've read. I do think there are people who make up things - on both sides. But I'm intelligent enough to decipher what I think I should believe as truth. That's enough for me. Those who make up things or appear dellusion, over and over again, I just don't have any time for. Really, life is too short to focus on who each poster may be in real life. And honestly, I don't want to know that any of you worshipers may be my next door neighbor in real life LOL

"bstnactrs, you claim you were an extra on Malice."


Actually, it was “The Interpreter”.



"Some don't think what you have done with your acting career is much or that you can call yourself an actress. You aren't a full-time actress, you have admitted that. And in some peoples eyes that means you aren't one.

Fair enough.



"And reading her posts where she is so certain about Kidman some may get the impression she's full-time working in the industry with all kinds of contacts and connections, possibly a known name or a working character actress."



I have to disagree with you here b/c again, I have always been honest about how “small-time” I am…always. So, if anyone believed otherwise simply b/c of something I heard while working out there, then, that’s on them. Had I never admitted to being a “nobody” I could see your point, but that is not the case.



"bstnactrs gave away her location in her screen name and gave out her name on here."



Well, my first name…and my headshot, so yes, not sure how old what you dug up was but it was MY stuff. You’d find more since I joined the union…but it doesn’t matter…I did open myself up for you to find some real truth about me, no matter how old or recent…and I did it on purpose and you found out exactly what I knew you would.



"I didn't stalk, all it takes is a couple of Google searches to confirm my suspicions. She wasn't the well-connected expert she wanted us to believe she was."



Well, “well-connected expert” is stretching it a bit – I’m, no expert on anything and I’ve stated that many, many times. I never claimed to be a star, I never claimed to hang out with stars nor have I ever claimed to know a bunch of stars. Have I met some? Yes. Have I worked with some? Yes. Have I chatted with some? Yes. But that is no different from anyone else out there.
Even small-time actors go to industry events…extras get invited to the premieres, then there’s charity events, movie screenings, film festivals, and then your agents drags you all over the place to various things, to introduce you to people who can help you, or at least remember they met you if ever you’re auditioning for them or up for something or they’re looking for someone in the future…it’s an excellent opportunity to network and meet lots of industry people – not just other actors…but reps from the big agencies, producers, directors, writers, pr people, etc. So, it does, by default, lend itself to you hearing stuff about folks out there – even folks who have made it big…you don’t have to believe that…but it doesn’t make it not true.




""Outing" skeptics on the internet (even though most of the content I saw on JB's site is inaccurate) is not normal."



Actually, imahick, I “outed” myself – not JB or RC – and that is the irony. JB claimed to have outed the “real truth” about me but by me posting what I did and by RC checking it out she actually proved JB wrong and me right. Fascinating how after I admitted my real name and posted my headshot that someone actually took the time to check me out and uncovered who I really was. Which is the opposite of who JB claimed I was.

So, if JB was wrong about me, then what else was she wrong about I wonder?

undecided said...

I've lurked on the E board a long time and none of the skeptics ever tried to hide that they used to be Keith's fans, so what's the big news from JB? The poster who is an actress said she wasn't a star, she didn't make anything up, either. The worship people who butt into everything and the oldtimers on that board who think the sun hasn't come up until they 'good morning, ladies' every thread are the real pains. The only thing I can fault the skeptics for is that they start good stories but they PM the punchlines to each other, and since I lurk and they don't know me, I don't get PM'ed. At least the skeptics are only mean to Nicole and Keith. And she deserves it and he probably doesn't care.
