Hanging with Royalty

Rupie and the Royalty

Queen Rania celebrates with famous friends including Nicole Kidman in beautiful Jordan

29 MARCH 2010
There was a chance for Queen Rania to share the beauty of her country with a host of her celebrity friends recently as a contingent of famous faces gathered in Jordan for the magical baptism of Wendi and Rupert Murdoch's two daughters Grace and Chloe.

This week's issue, number 1117, features 18 pages of colourful pictures of the high-profile guests celebrating in the Middle Eastern nation.

Those on the high-powered guest list included Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban, Hugh Jackman and his actress wife Deborra-Lee Furness and billionaire property owner Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka.

Queen Rania organised a special three-day tour of some of the country’s historic and natural treasures during their stay, including visits to the ancient city of Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea.

Had I seen it several years ago where her career status wasn't so obvious, might have bought into having company in the right place concept...with what's been written all over about her for years and who she had revealed as basically no personality, no character, awaiting for any career and personality guidance kind of vacuous entitiy, erroneously or not, can't help feeling pathos for her...anything to be seen, any envelop opening event, any one who cares to remember, here basically has a cluster of Australian mix, suspect Murdoch's pull (in other words, her presence is totally irrelevant, she's not some acquaintance of the Queen), how strategically situates herself right next to her, etc. etc. she's soooooooooooo pathetic. probably an hour later of this shot, see her back in her hotel, picking her nose, sprawling on the bed, thinking how many more of these before they dry out permanently....

jasfro said...

Kidman and Jackman were named as the girls' godparents.

Kidman and the Queen both work with UNIFEM and at the very least know each from charity functions.

Irrelevant? Whatever you say.

smorgas91 said...

No, I found it totally bizarre to have Hollywood "actors" as godparents to Jordan's royalty, give me a freakin' break given the size of her global social circles with true "friendhsips" in other royal circles -- she that desperate, then the connections themselves her & Jackman (what, did this Queen like Australia that much...haha) Not sure if this is a legit link, but here's one source's clarification of their outing & godparent relationships (& amazing how data can be taken out of context tho): http://www.monstersandcritics.com/people/royalwatch/news/article_1544459.php/Queen-Rania-leads-Baptism-celebrations

jasfro said...

"Jordan's Queen Rania hosted a three-day tour of her country following the baptism of Rupert Murdoch's daughters. "

Kidman has known the Murdochs probably for 20 years. I couldn't tell you how long Jackman has known the family. The Queen hosted them.

It doesn't surprise me there isn't anyone associated with this blog willing to tell you you had your facts mixed up.

maclen said...

No mention in the article of when this occured...so my natural inclination is that this was this weekend...which would explain the reason why she couldnt accept the invite to the anti domestic conference in Valencia! Another "personal" photo op...as opposed to the usual lame prearanged photo ops at starbucks or the deli! Yes, another opportunity to "celeb drop"...with royalty no doubt...and to no doubt lobby new "projects" from "compadre" murdoch! "Hey Rupey, how about you give me another film deal at FOx!" Apparently, kidman's vanity shingle, Blossum films was dumped over at Fox...yeah, after a prolific and impressive list of films numbering...NONE! Also, was watching letterman last night, and robin williams was a guest. He mentioned he was just back from AUstralia where he did voice work for Happy Feet 2...so...you think kidman's recent trip to OZ...for her mums b-day...was actually to simply do voice work for HF2? Yes, it was just a "vacation trip" to see the family...more like "covert" shenanigans for the dead career!

smorgas91 said...

I don't understand the issue of one contributer here but my position stands with NK & Jackman as Murdoch entourage, not as special or exclusive invitees by the Queen. The initial entry by this person sounded in defense of NK that she and Jackman were in fact godparents of the daughters, which could have been those of Queen (does have two daughers) and as does Murdoch, but this person's contribution after mine made sense if they were Queen's. If the reference were made of Murdoch's, I fail to see the significance as I always said she/NK was there as Murdoch's "pull" or fellow "Australian" mix. There is no mix up. Everything is documented. Final.

smorgas91 said...There is no mix up. Everything is documented. Final.

If I may add in defense of the bloggers on this site. . .

you have to give us a chance to get home from work and read the blog and comments before we can edit and offer correction, if correction is needed, which, in this case, I do not think it was. . we all know the murdoch connection, we aren't challenged as a whole here. . . .

gateway said...

smoragas said he/she "found it totally bizarre to have Hollywood "actors" as godparents to Jordan's royalty". Admit you read the article incorrectly or you didn't read it at all. Big mix up. Final.

smorgas91 said...

questionable resolution with gateway. IT IS CORRECT, she as in NK, was there to be a godparent to Murdoch's daughter, not the queen's. It's documented, I stand by that sentence!!!!! Furthermore, I said final to end a discussion of this kind of nature where it's transition into erroneous personal attack and start a new discussion thread. hoosierlady, by all means, stating final didn't stop you, so what gives?

maclen said...

So, a recent kidman google search reveals a "royalty hosted baptism"...

http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2010/mar/31/nicole-kidman-hugh-jackman-rupert-murdoch

...a couple of aussie "actors"...(the recent stars of the recent flop film Australia) playing godparents to the aussie "studio owner" (and distributor of said film)... What are they laying the groundwork for..."Australia 2: the Royalest ceremony!" Yeah, I'm sure that will really impress the European "blue blood" gawkers and worshipers...and inevitably...the kidman fansies...a full display by the pomp(ous) and circumstance(tial!)..

...and then there's the stories of a "starstruck" selena gomez...about to star in a "kidman produced" film...(such a oxymoron phrase if I ever heard one!)

http://angryape.com/news/selena-gomez-starstruck-meeting-nicole-kidman

...gushing about how "cool" kidman is...(and gomez surely knows of "cool", too, she's on the Disney channel, dont you know"..must have been misinterpreted from the true description: "COLD") And the word kidman MAY play a bit role is on par with kidman's new role of "hasbeen"...this, possibly..and the bit part in the sandler pic will surely give kidman a good week or even a half a week of work!

....and the news of the day...the humdrum news kidman may buy another house...boy, kidman's "real estate portfolio" trumping her bit parts on film... you gotta know your career is dead just based on the monotony of these stories!

maclen said...

..ps...

..just an after thought on the "Australia 2" crack...if you recall, the whole issue during the post pro for the film involved the "fate" of the jackman character...seems I recall the bazz wanted to kill off his character...but the studio balked, and wanted to end the film on a happy note. I'd wager the true reason had more to do with the possibility of a sequel. But as is now a kidman normal happenstance..."she don't merit no stinkin' sequels!" Now, in regular lalaland mentality...Bewitched should had merited at least one sequel...and in fact the golden compass was a 3 novel series, and going into the film version, it was fully expected to be a trilogy. But as is the case of kidman's poor drawing power, kidman has yet to be in a legitamate self generated sequel...the one and only sequel she has been in was for a Batman sequel in the mid 90's...and clearly kidman was rightly superfluous to that francise. So, really, why would any studio, outside of being a densely operated or chaotic mess, hire kidman to once again star in a film? Well the answer is...they wont. Sure, she may have a couple of cameos...but her "starring" days are over. Hope the fansies can bear to watch kidman be the counter lady...or the best friend's mum...with that barely 5 to 10 minutes of screen time...no doubt in a selena gomez tween pic!

mikki said...

maclen, if she were doing Happy Feet 2 wouldn't we have known? She always makes sure its known when she is doing a film (of any kind). Look at the articles about her "cameo" before Heidi Montag stole her thunder.

She didn't get much mileage out of this trip to Jordan. Expected the usual, to see the photos everywhere. Hasn't happened. Not yet anyway.

maclen said...

mikki said...
"maclen, if she were doing Happy Feet 2 wouldn't we have known? She always makes sure its known when she is doing a film (of any kind). Look at the articles about her "cameo" before Heidi Montag stole her thunder."

Well, clearly the fact is with kidman right now, mikki, is that NOTHING is clear as to what is up with kidman...filmwise. No one seems to know what is going on with kidman's clearly dead career. I mean, there is still confusion of when or if Rabbit Hole is to be released...let alone when the post pro will be done on the film...again, 8 whole months after it finished filming last july! Even the fansie are merely speculating at this moment if or not it will be at this years Canne festival...another fansie then mentions an article surmissing that the film may not even be done in time for Cannes! And there is only "speculation" as to whether the Danish girl will begin shooting this May...now again, she has an announced cameo in the sandler pic...not much word on that yet...despite montags filming coverage...and even sandlers and aniston's filming coverage...then there is word of kidman's bit part in Monte carlo with gomez...which is reported may start filming in april. Of course, considering kidman's bit roles in the sandler pic and maybe a bit role in the gomez pic...kidman may have a week or two of work there...not entirely impossible...but hardly impressive! And as to Happy feet 2, again, the fact that it is not certain for sure whether she is to be in it or not, again simply states the confusing and chaotic state of her career. Until something actually comes to fruition...nothing kidman may be a part of may not be known until the films are about to come out...which is how the industry may actually want it to be...for again, kidman doesnt "sell" films...and right now...she may only end up "loitering" in a hogpodge of bubblegum rom coms!

Sorry, someone needs to post the SOP so I don't step on any toes in the future.

I sit before all properly chastised.

maclen said...

So, I just read this story at the Guardian website...

http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2010/mar/31/nicole-kidman-hugh-jackman-rupert-murdoch

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman become Murdoch daughters' godparents

...and it smacks me as such a guady and subpar PR stunt! kidman AND jackman are the godparents? So, what was it...the orb was unwilling to stand with the kids? Jackman's wife doesnt past muster for murdoch's kids? Murdoch cynically chooses his kids godparents as he recently cast a movie flop last december of 08? If these kids have their first holy communion, is murdoch gonna cast russell crowe and naomi watts to stand with the kids? Again, shoddy and shallow pr stunting! Anyways, so do I sense another trend here? Just as kidman is in "professional" low laying... is this the flip side of kidman's new strategy? Is this recent "personal" tour of events...recall the outing for her mums b-day...the day at Greenwich Baths...both with both set of in-laws in tow...now this "Godparents" story...is kidman once again setting up the whole "family is too important for her to be making movies" excuse if everything just suddenly falls through in the role department? For surely, even the fansies will be in the dark as to what kidman is or is not shooting...well...ever!

mikki said...

Actually maclen I think this was Murdoch's PR stunt. He only used Kidman & Jackman to hype it. He had been at an Arab summit recently urging more freedom for the Middle East Media.

Kidman has been using the "family first" ever since she got hammered for Australia. Shes not getting any roles. And shes not getting much publicity. And I don't think thats by choice.

maclen said...

Yeah, mikki, that is true, since promo for Australia, kidman has apparently hinted at retiring...to actually retiring...and making a "comeback" for Nine... all in about 4 or 5 months time! And again, I recently go back to the fansie site...where there is now "spirited debate" on the future path of kidman's career! to wit...

"QUOTE(rain438 @ Mar 31 2010, 06:38 AM) *
She's also doing a few small roles in a few likely to be goofy/silly/funny movies. There is nothing wrong with that!"

"For me there's everything wrong, because I don't see the actresses considered "great" like Blanchett, Winslet, Pfeiffer, and others making supporting roles (not cameos) in teen movie even if they are the producers very often.
The goofy/silly/funny movies are ok if the projects sound good at least, something that for me it's not at all in this case."

"Nicole's life is precisely that. Her life. To be lived on her own terms. She cannot listen to every person who "blogs" on the internet. If she were to do that she would lose control of her life."

(...and this one is hilarious!)

skankyoldwhore said...
"..."We already had someone actually write here on this board that the fact that NK got pregnant is the worst thing to happen to her, this was written apparently by someone who did not realise that NK is a living, breathing human being and not there to make a movie 24/7.
Here is another punchline, few people understand the struggle it entails to get movies made. Orson Welles almost had to sell his soul to get his films made and yet, NK in the space of ONE year has produced Rabbit Hole, will produce Monte Carlo.
For those frantically panting about The Danish Girl, this project has been in the works for a few years, starting with Neil Labute who wanted to direct it years ago but nothing happened and yet, NK came onboard as one of the producers and it has moved forward than it ever did despite the fact that financiers withdrew their support while arrangements were being made not long ago but she and the other producers pressed forward with it and arriving at the point where it may start filming in mid-May. And yet, apparently, this is a woman who does not know what she needs to do for her career as suggested by some people. It will be interesting to read on this board what happens if TDG gets shelved, I wonder if heads will explode?"

(Yeah, how many also get the feeling that this "skanky o'ho" is actually an inept team kidman shill!?)

Ha! Yes, stay calm and relaxed, fansie people...as kidman's career careens to the sidelines...nothing to see here folks! And apparently, less to see of kidman in theaters in the near future! And they call the so called "skeptics" (I'm a "cynic" by the way) dellusional and just wrong headed! It seems that even in the fansie ranks...a little bit of my cynicism is creeping in! You have nothing to fear, but fear itself...unless kidman is reduced to bit parts in even her own supposedly "produced" teen comedy!

hoosierlady said...

Country Weekly released today had another KU article, this time, again, absolutely no mention of NK or rescue, life changing, life renewing, life beginning, life giving, you get the drift. . . .

I believe, ladies and gent, you may have won.

April Fool's, Hoosier?

How ODD!!! lmao!

"Country Weekly released today had another KU article, this time, again, absolutely no mention of NK or rescue, life changing, life renewing, life beginning, life giving, you get the drift. . . .

So, the orb has apparently wised up and has zapped the rather vapid kidman of any mention or influence on his upcoming tour? Well, as a WISE and SAGE commentor just recently commmented on the previous thread...

"Ånd if you would also notice, the review I posted earlier of orb's recent Houston gig, there is also an "noticable' omission... no mention of kidman. The next question is, will kidman also be a "no show" at the orbs restart of live touring?"

...and since modesty denies me the option of pointing out WHO recently made that observation...oh hell...IT WAS ME!...I think hoosier is rightly perceptive and highly correct in that verdict! It is not very surprising, as the industry begins to ignore kidman and her failed career...the orb would also be wise to keep her unappealing and very dull behind out of his scene...or the orb risks a failed career as well!

hoosierlady said...

I April 2nd, and I have nothing to retract.

maclen said...

Ha! Here is some hilarity from a fansie...who is obviously and desperately clutching to any little morsel of info to cling to her delusional adoration of kidman! So at the fansie site they posted this article:

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118017182.html?categoryid=13&cs=1

Music biopics struggle to make it to bigscreen

...which mentions kidman's bio-pic attempt...AND the other sprinfield bio pic starring kristen chenoweth...

"Nicole Kidman and her Blossom Films banner are still actively pushing forward on Springfield feature "The Look of Love," according to her reps. The project is being developed with writer Michael Cunningham ("The Hours"). Another Springfield project is in development with Kristin Chenoweth attached to star for Universal and producer Marc Platt.

...to which NKUser
"TakeCatLeaveSwea..." comments...

"Thanks Meisha! I would love to see this film made. Hearing there's now a title is good. I haven't heard anything more about the Chenoweth project moving forward, but maybe that's because Nicole is a bigger name."

...so obviously, "Takecat" is now under the belief that kidman's version is "moving forward"...because the fact that this artice states that kidman's reps claim they are "actively pushing forward"...BUT..."Takecat" claims to not have "HEARD" anything more of the chenoweth version "moving forward...and that maybe its because...kidman is a "bigger name!" Yet, as can be seen in the quote above...the chenoweth version is mentioned along side kidman's and is said to be "...in development" with Kristin Chenoweth attached to star for Universal and producer Marc Platt. So apparently..."Takecat" hasnt "HEARD" anything about the chenoweth version "going through"...BUT reads that it is "in developement" in this same article that states kidman's bio pic is also still "in development"...and illogically assumes kidman's is going through and chenoweth must not be going through! And yeah, the twisted and adle mindedness of this commentors statements is making me dizzy! But whatever little hope kidman can get another dreary or weepy indie of her's off the ground is all the fansie's have left to grasp onto to! But, as this other article from Variety states...

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118016686.html?categoryid=13&cs=1

Leaner times for producers on the lot

"But the trims have come in the so-called "vanity" deal arena for actors and directors. The latest to go away: Nicole Kidman's Blossum Films at Fox, McG's Wonderland Sound & Vision at Warners, Pierce Brosnan's Irish Dream time at MGM and Dr. Dre at New Line."


So good luck to the fansies hoping kidman can get another film made WITHOUT the backup of a studio! But then again, kidman has SUCH A BIG NAME...HA! HA!

maclen said...

And in this "E-O'-L-N-M's...

...HA! Well, apparently the orb is not the only one who appears to be "distancing" themselves from the vapid kidman...

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/entertainment/confidential/antonia-kidman-marries-craig-marran-in-south-africa-nicole-kidman-not-in-attendance/story-e6frf96o-1225849947402

Antonia Kidman marries Craig Marran in South Africa, Nicole Kidman not in attendance

" ANTONIA Kidman has ducked the attention of the world's press to marry in South Africa, in a ceremony so small her sister Nicole didn't attend."

...Antonia no doubt wanted a dignified...no fuss and low key...in other words...a "non-prearranged" photo op...and an honest to goodness "private" ceremony...and certainly nothing coming close to kidman's "royal ceremony" when she married her PR husband orb! She also has opted to move out of Oz, where kidman loved to "announce" her arrivals and arrange staged Oz airport "family" photo ops to go with her "close to family" current campaign! Yes...all around her...kidman seems to be thoroughly abandoned!

maclen said...

So, just a few current "observances"...now, let's just "juxapose" for a few moment here! As a current google news search seems to reveal...it seems along with signing onto the supposed kidman "produced" Monte Carlo...selena gomez also seems to have been "contractually obligated to mention kidman is to "star" in this film in EVERY interview she gives...despite the fact that gomez has actually "signed" onto to "star"...it also seems that the "kidman public photo op" deprieved fansies of NKU are now reduced to "manufacturing" a public event that kidman is "supposedly" to appear at! Over at the fansie site, this thread was posted...

http://www.nicolekidmanunited.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=12524

Nic In N. Y. " Say No - Unite" Event, April 6

...and then pasted this quote from this article...

www.thethreetomatoes.com/saynounite.html

"Say No - Unite: April 6, 2010 - Featuring Nicole

...seemingly giving the "impression" that kidman will be "featured" and in attendance at this event...even a few fansies state that must be why kidman and co are in NY...based on a few twit stalker postings on line... but if actually you go to that treetomatoes.com link, no where does it mention kidman as being scheduled to appear...it does state...

"Please join The Three Tomatoes, the Metro New York Chapter of the US National Committee for UNIFEM, and several other leading women’s organizations on April 6, 2010 to show your support for the United Nations/UNIFEM campaign “Say NO – UNiTE to End Violence against Women” .This is a global call for action on ending violence against women and girls through social mobilization. "

..and that there will be a "Panel Discussion: Violence Against Women: The Pandemic, The Consequences, and What We Can Do" with valerie smaldone...dorchen a. leidholdt...leslie wright...nancy deville and kathleen hunt...but...NO KIDMAN! Now, kidman may in fact be in attendence at this event...yes, this "cocktail reception" with "wine and hors d'oeuvres! But, the websites DO NOT ANNOUNCE THAT... so we shall see...if kidman shows up...for the "wine and hors d'oeuvres!
Now lets juxapose....

http://www.freshnews.in/angelina-jolie-and-brad-pitt-visited-the-bosnian-refugees-181338

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Visited the Bosnian Refugees

"The UN Goodwill Ambassador and Brad Pitt spent the whole Monday touring Bosnia and Herzegovina. It turned out that they met with families that are unable to return to their homes 15 years after the Balkan country’s brutal 1992-1995 civil war."

Meanwhile, the "limo ambassador's" last foreign visit was 4 whole years ago! But, as the fansies seem to indicate, she may show up to a "cocktail reception" in NY...no doubt for the "wine and hors d'oeuvres!

smorgas91 said...

She comes with a long track record of contrived events, stupid and obvious enough to be perceived and labeled as such, all so insincere and contradictory, this is a vacuous --and sloppy -- individual in the false name of art or entertainment She the individual should have stayed eclipsed & hidden by cruise

hoosierlady said...

Let's see, Let's see. . . .

Wasn't it UNIFEM the congressional hearing where she threw hollywood under the truck?

Wasn't it after the congressional hearing when she blew off the reception?

maclen said...

hoosierlady said...
"Wasn't it after the congressional hearing when she blew off the reception?"

Not just blew off the post testimonial reception...she also blew off the planned trip to Kenya...due to the "flu"...

http://www.hollyscoop.com/nicole-kidman/nicole-kidman-cancels-kenya-trip-due-to-flu_22065.aspx#axzz0kSMjbVcW

Nicole Kidman Cancels Kenya Trip Due to Flu

"Nicole was supposed to go to Kenya this week as part of an initiative launched by the United Nations Development Fund for Women (Unifem).
She’d planned on visiting schools and hospitals in the country and raise awareness of women's rights."

So, yeah..SO many plans...but SO little follow through for the limo ambassador! Well, as for the sayno unite "cocktail reception"...with "wine and hors d'oeuvres"...that took place yesterday, no news is apparent! And as the clueless fansies are wondering today...

"Yes unfortunately, I've been looking for new photos since yesterday but with no luck."

Well, could it be, there ARE no pics...because kidman was not there!? WHAT? Not even a lame iphone video feed? So apparently kidman isnt even bothering to "phone it in!" What the hell happended to even simply "using her fame and notoriety" her twit fansies excuse kidman's half assed eforts to bring the spotlight to her "so called" causes? So kidman was in NY to check out a broadway play...but couldnt make time for a cause she is supposedly the "spokesperson" for? Clearly kidman is as MIA as a "limo ambassador" as she is in the movie industry!

smorgas91 said...

Good God, no giving herself or schmoozing for anything this lady. Me thinks her mentality works more like this: She's SOOOOOOOOO HOOOOTTTTTT, she will get hit on by all men if she stayed on.... No, she can't possibly use the social event to further political or otherwise causes. Read a few years ago she was one of the earliest to arrive for J. Lo's restaurant opening....c'mon, somethings are more impt

"Good God, no giving herself or schmoozing for anything this lady.

Ha! I would say, smorgas91, that her current campaign to "revive" her dead career is solely based on the super secret cameo in the sandler flick! And all other so called "endeavors" will surely take a back seat. Was she present at the Sayno-unite cocktail party? Doesnt seem to be too much coverage of it currently...even the sayno-unite website has no updated info on last night's party...

http://www.saynotoviolence.org/

...but all you have to do to get a gist of kidman's participation in this organization's campaigns is to read this bio of kidman I found at the site...their so called "spokesperson"...

http://www.saynotoviolence.org/say-no-around-world/who-says-no/nicole-kidman

Nicole Kidman – UNIFEM Goodwill Ambassador and Say NO Spokesperson

...in the description of kidman's "history" with the sayno-unite org...it ends with this...

" Her participation in 2003 as honoree for the Los Angeles–based Women’s Cancer Research annual dinner, “Unforgettable Evening,” helped raise 9 million dollars for programs in Los Angeles (including UCLA’s) and 2.7 million dollars for similar programs around the country."

...so...kidman's last involvement with the group, as described by the sayno-unite organization itself...WAS IN 2003! Seven long years ago!? That's not "half assed"...that's NO ASSED! So either the org is lazier than kidman's pitiful charitable effors at updating their websites info...or kidman is pathetically indifferent to this group! For a group hoping to "raise awareness" for their cause, kidman is the most inept and farcical choice they could have chosen!

maclen said...

So, as the fansies are just now noting....kidman WILL NOT star in Monte Carlo with selena Gomez...

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118017429.html?categoryid=13&cs=1&ref=bd_film

Cassidy set for 'Monte Carlo'
Actress to star opposite Gomez, Meester


...and the article "explains"...

" Producers are Nicole Kidman, Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan. Kidman originally intended to play a supporting role in the film, but opted out because of scheduling conflicts."

..ah yes, the notorious "scheduing conflicts!" Because, kidman has SOOO much on her plate! No, more like kidman couldnt get this film moving when she was threatening to star in it...but now that they seemingly are rounding up a few younger and current actress'...this film WONT go through unless kidman stays out of it! So that's one less "bit part" kidman couldnt get...I cant wait to read what else kidman COULDNT get!

Tara said...

What scheduling conflicts?
What is she doing except making his life miserable?

Thanks to the person that sent me the link to that site on April Fools day. Interesting but not very fun.

I guess someone really really wants you to know that Keith and Kidman are in Nashville since there is now a stalkers perch set up outside Whole Foods in Green Hills so that they can get a shot of the happy(???) couple.

martingano said...

You mean to tell me they aren't - happy or in Nashville!

Does anybody believe these tweets from these twits?

Well of course, the fansies are back on the twit stalkings...considering that kidman has shut down the phoney photo ops. Do you realize it has now been 32 days...since march 8th...that there were any photo ops over at JJ? And considering their last anticipated photo op opportunity at the unifem "sayno unite" cocktail party, kidman was obviously a NO SHOW! And the fact that a "kidman google search" will only reveal that...

...the monte carlo film has been now fleshed out with...along side selena gomez...are "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester, "Melrose Place" resident Katie Cassidy, and Cory Monteith of "Glee" are all heading to "Monte Carlo" with the teen Disney star."

...notice that the film is being packed by "tv stars"...that's about what I'd expect from the "low rent" kidman shingle...wonder if they will do without dressing rooms...makeup or catering as with kidman dreary and weepy indie, RAbbit hole? The one that is STILL lanquishing in post pro and not expected to make it to Cannes?

maclen said...

...PS...

so, it seems there is new info on the ongoing "travails" of kidman's shambles of a career...(that is "dead")...this bit from apparent "former costar" paltrow...

http://www.accesshollywood.com/gwyneth-paltrow-opens-up-about-marriage-talks-brad-and-angelina_article_31029

Gwyneth Paltrow Opens Up About Marriage, Talks Brad & Angelina

"Gwyneth recently parted ways with “The Danish Girl,” a film project she was previously attached to that will star Nicole Kidman, due to a location change, and the blonde told Harper’s that Chris said something about that decision that made her appreciate him more.
“When I pulled out [of ‘The Danish Gir’l], he said, ‘I think you’ll be happy with your decision.’ I really lucked out with him. He’s deeply lovely and special,” she said."

...so, now paltrow is OUT...that makes 3 directors...2 costars... I especially got a chuckle out of the "because of a location change" excuse! And obviously, the "her hubby thinks she will be happy over pulling out" is clearly a dig at the whole production! I guess that rumor of kidman "snubbing" a paltrow invite in nashville may be true after all! Yes, BUT... their still is HOPE for the film, right fansies! HA! HA!

You mean to tell me they aren't - happy or in Nashville!

Does anybody believe these tweets from these twits?


I didn't want to be the first to mention it but has anyone looked at the time on the tweets? To me, something doesn't add up.


It may just be me.

Laura said...

OK, this has nothing to do with the post, or what ya'll are talking about, but it has everything to do with the site so can I just say this: Give up! People, I don't like Kidman either, trust me. But KEITH OBVIOUSLY loves her. He wouldn't still be with her, want more babies with her, or blab about her all the time if he didn't. There is no legit proof that what they have isn't real. I agree that they are an odd couple but who knows, they could last as long as Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill have. But ofcourse, It's Hollywood, so the odds are against them. Just let them be. (And again, this is coming from someone who does NOT like Kidman.)

K. That is all.

maclen said...

Here is another update on the seemingly MIA kidman...on the subject of that Sayno Unite cocktail party that the fansies were drooling over late last week and that occured earlier this week...

http://www.thethreetomatoes.com/saynounite.html

150 attendees; 25 sponsors
Joined us on April 6, 2010 to Say No UNiTe to End Violence against women. Thank you all!


"150 women and men joined The Three Tomatoes, the Metro New York Chapter of the US National Committee for UNIFEM, and several other leading women’s organizations on April 6, 2010 to show their support for the United Nations/UNIFEM campaign “Say NO – UNiTE to End Violence against Women” .This is a global call for action on ending violence against women and girls through social mobilization."

And so officially, kidman...the "Official Spokesperson of Say NO"...who according to her fansie twit stalkers was in NY...attending a broadway play at the time of this "cocktail party"...and who purport it to be an "awarness raising event"...WAS NOT in attendance to help any "awareness raising"...of any kind at all! I of course find it not at all surprising...since kidman is more concerned over her failed film career...with only a bit part in the sandler/aniston flick...relativity media panhandling a "romcom" for kidman to the studios...and now paltrow now officially blowing off costarring in the Danish Girl...seems kidman was apparently in NY last week for some OTHER reason! Based on the word that kidman attended a broadway show...is kidman looking to return to the stage...after her one and only appearance about 10 years ago? Considering she is having a hell of a time trying to get only her second self produced indie...in over 7 years time...and clearly struggling to get it to any movie screen...theater or festival. It seems to me that kidman's "scheduling conflicts" is simply a case of "scheduling misses"...in that there aint much going on regarding scheduling! Just look at the scene...no word yet on filming by kidman for her "cameo"(and take my word...there probably wont be, since its meant to be "super secret confidental!)...no role in Monte carlo...paltrow "opts out of Danish Girl. Fansies should just admit to it...nobody wants to make the Danish Girl...not directors Tucker or Alfredson...and not actors Theron or Paltrow...kidman is the only one who still clings to getting this film off the ground...it's all she has left... she can't even get a role in the other film she is connected to, Monte Carlo...and apparently the studios want "Gossip girls meets melrose place meets GLee!" Since selena gomez has a tv show...perhaps kidman can get a bit role in gomez's disney show...or perhaps just a walk on bit.

smorgas91 said...

Per Maclean: "I guess that rumor of kidman "snubbing" a paltrow invite in nashville may be true after all!" On this one, while it's true, NK is stupid, her social ineptness or inability to schmooze well documented, blah balh and her highly questionable intelligence, no acting talent and limited business acumen blah blah...okay, but it seems to me if you're going to "snub" your going to be a venture partner, that's a clear message to that partner to F***O** I don't want you. I think likely paltrow took the que (doesn't require much to figure this out) and provided the expected response. As both undeserved Oscar winners, don't see how NK could "snub" GP; may be this is too logical of thinking for a moron like NK. So, it's likely that NK herself didn't have much hope to get Danish crap made...yeah, and there's always that I don't like her (so who'd given her the greenlight in the first place) women more than men tend to do...guess she's not a hermaphrodite (actually a past rumor!)

rememberwhen said...

Isn't it funny that all these people that tweet see them in places that Ke and Kidman don't have to talk to each other. I know of several people that have seen them go out to eat or to Starbucks and they just sit there. When it is time to go Kidman looks at Keith he nods his head and they leave. Now you tell me how can they be so in love it they don't even say two words to each other?

martingano said...

In response to Laura:

There is no legit proof that what they have is real either. I see two people who play up to the camera.I see phonies written all over this marriage. For all we know Keith could obviously love her bank account. Who wouldn't sign on the dotted line if you were promised all they toys that money could buy. The man has the best of all worlds, fame, fortune, a trophy wife, a pretend child and perhaps something on the side. Unless it is proven otherwise, I don't believe it. Never have, never will.

To remeberwhen and Hoosierlady:

I don't believe the tweets. I wouldn't be surprised if it was their PR people tweeting what so not may be true.

smorgas91 said...

Ummm, in my opinon, not having anything to say between married people doesn't necessarily transalate to lacking in love; sometime they reach a point they know each other so well, words are not needed; yes, also could indicate have nothing to communicate for negative reasons. Have read some bloggers' experience meeting the couple and say both weren't too bright, couldn't carry on conversations. So they're lacking in words because both shallow, stupid and having nothing to say to each other (he's thick, she weird)... a match made in heaven!

smorgas91 said...

Correction: ..."she DUMB and weird"

mikki said...

Exactly how I see it martingano. When did Keith decide she was his "once in a lifetime"? Cause it wasn't before he married her, and it wasn't when he married, and it sure wasn't after he married her! Seems pretty obvious it was after he embarrassed her in the media that he decided he better get in the game or lose it all. This has PR marriage written all over it.

As for the tweets. Don't believe them either.

Laura said...

I don't think any marriage can have "PR" written all over it! The only way someone would think that is if they spent EVERY day with the couple and witnessed proof of it..But I dont know, i just dont see it. But what tweets are you guys talking about?

maclen said...

So, in this "E-O'-L-N-M's"...

A few interesting notes to relay... so just did a google news search on kidman...to see if anything is up in kidman's current photo op "black hole"...and what comes up in a kidman google news search? This...

Headlines: Leighton Meester - Meester And Stan Split"

Glee's Cory Monteith Lands in Monte Carlo

Headlines: Source: Leighton Meester "Still Friends" With Ex ...

Casino Movie Trivia Part I

Hollywood sky lit with southern stars

...and on the rest of the first page, kidman is NOT mentioned in the titles! So I went to the fansie site, to check out their pathetic "non" substantial updates on kidman's dead career...and it seems that the previously public "Nicole's Inbox (main)" topic section is currently now only accessible to "Members"...ie: its now PRIVATE! At least currently. Could it really possibly be that all my recent highlighting and mocking of the fansie's disaproval of kidman's currently failed career...and of her choices of roles...or her simply being unable to get a starring project for hersef off the ground...caused the fansies...those phoney photo op addicts... to shut down their only public threads in shame and embarrassment? Sure, disabling the thread to outsiders will cover up that shame and embarrassment...but they must face it...kidman's failure in lalaland is clearly out there for any to see! And it is so plainly clear to see what is NOT in a kidman google news search...any substansive lalaland industry news about kidman! So, again, just as I surmissed that inept team kidman has shut down the rather lame and pathetic phoney pre arranged photo ops...has inept team kidman now shut down her fansie site to the eyes of those who would witness her career's failures and of her recent NON activity? If true, it may be a while until it comes online to the public again...I would wager it would be when she is done with filming her "super secret, sensational cameo" which seems to be the ONLY work she may have at the moment. I mean inept team kidman may not want any of the NKUser resident members stumbling on an erronious photo of kidman filming her "career saving" cameo and then impulsively posting them on the fansie site for ALL to see! (I would wager that obvious inept team kidman insider and phoney photo op provider "Nickufan" got the memo NOT to post any pap photos for the addict fansies...and also NOT to obvious photo op outlets JJ or GG) So what is it to be...they shut down the "public" fansie site until kidman can regroup..careerwise, or is it just a temp glitch that will clear up as soon as tommorrow? Well, only the future will tell, and certainly I will tell if it does turn out to be the case! So stay tuned...

Choice said...

Im so pleased to see Kidman and Jackman have found a new project together. What stars do when there are no film roles in the offering:
http://nicole-kidman-journey.blogspot.com/

abc said...

I feel that Gwyneth’s response with regard to her husband’s comment is a real slap in the face to Nicole. Ordinarily something like that would not be shared with the media and it feels deliberate to me. Clearly they feel that the film will not be one to be proud of; and could be why everyone keeps bailing out of it.

Something else I find interesting is that a couple of reviews of Rabbit Hole that have surfaced, in high praise of Nicole’s performance, are now being labelled “fake” over at NKU. Makes me wonder who is writing and posting these reviews and why.

Also interesting is Selena Gomez’s comment that she is going to be in a film with Nicole, other than the film that NK is producing (Monte Carlo).

NK’s involvement in what is now a ‘teenflic’ is consistent with her always trying to be ‘me-too’. The Indian commercial came right after the success of Slumdog Millionaire. Golden Compass came right after the success and popularity of other trilogies. The Hours coming after Theron winning an Oscar in an uglyfying role. Nine after the resurgence of film musicals. It all just makes me think of Nicole as a leechy parasite. I haven’t been able to shake that image of her that has settled in my brain.

Wonder if NK will be filming DG while Keith is touring, despite her telling Oprah that if he tours, she won’t be making a movie. Wonder if she’s enjoying feeding the ‘baby’ now while “life” (as she put it) is going on without her.

abc said...

Maclen, it does not surprise me that NKU has shut down the public aspect of the site as I have noticed of late that there has been a lot of negative discussion about Nicole's current career choices on the site with some being quite persistent in criticising Nicole. It surprised me that Foxy hadn't been doing her censoring of much of it ... in fact when she did, one poster in particular, nicfan22, who sounds Italian to me, was very vocal in insisting upon freedom of speech etc.

I think, quite possibly, Nicole is finally doing the sanest thing, and is pulling out of the public eye ... hibernating ... AT LAST! I would if I were her. She had enough successes in the past to be able to retire gracefully with a somewhat substantial track record before the world saw through her.

Clearly, her PR has banned stuff being posted on JJ, probably to avoid the commentator discussions. Otherwise, for sure, the Jordan escapade would have been on JJ. I am sure too that it was at her instruction that NKU go private.

abc said...
"Maclen, it does not surprise me that NKU has shut down the public aspect of the site as I have noticed of late that there has been a lot of negative discussion about Nicole's current career choices on the site with some being quite persistent in criticising Nicole."

Yeah abc, I noticed that as well! And your pointing out about pap or kidman insider "nickufan" over at NKU helped me to put together the connection to JJ, GG and NKU regarding the phoney photo ops. Surely, this year, there has been a concerted effort to "rejuvinate" and "resurrect" kidman's image...beginning with that "dancing monkey and orb grinder" bit. So of course, the fansies will be very very sensitive to what is being said in, not only the "kidman Kommunity"...but also what we are revealing here on this blog! So the fansie addicts have taken their fixes, or what is left, and locked themselves in that darkened and unenlightened cave!

...ps...

...oh yeah, as of this morning...the once public NKU thread is STILL locked for private members only!

maclen said...

...ps...

...just a quick afterthought on the fansie site...I think the last straw was when many of the commentors were actually cheering that kidman would NOT be in the film Monte Carlo with gomez, meester and monteith! And actually, believing that the paltrow story that she has officially dropped out of Danish Girl has also officially killed that film...there really is not that much to update on the fansie site right now...and that the clear sign and recognition that there is gonna be even more discontent and rancor over kidman's dead career when all the supposed "new film" projects DO NOT come to fruition, may have caused the shutdown! So of course I need to mention...will all of our highlighting about how they have basically shut down the fansie site out of shame and embarrassement... cause the NKUser modes to reinstate it to "public" view? ...either way, they have been "called out"...and they look pretty pathetic!

Choice said...

We shouldnt give her new agent all the credit for telling Gran to go into hibernation. I think we reads our Blogs, and we have recommended this to her many times ie. retire, fade away or re-invent yourself.

So NKU has shut out the non-fansies huh? They want all critics silenced! Im noticing her fans are back on my Blog with their hilarious criticisms of Nicole Kidman's Journey. Or is really Gran undercover?

http://nicole-kidman-journey.blogspot.com/

maclen said...

So, as kidman has virtually "blacked" out on promo of any kind...my suspicion based on the fansie site black out, is that kidman is shooting her "super secret, uncredited" cameo...(will she play a "balding, over weight jewish studio head?")...I found a sole, new promo piece of the orb posted today...

http://www.theboot.com/2010/04/12/keith-urban-tour-2010/

Keith Urban Strives for 'Magic' Moments

...and of course, once again, WHO is suspiciously ABSENT of any mention in the piece? The article states...

"And for Keith, getting to that moment begins at home, sitting at his computer.
Posting on Twitter, perhaps? "No, definitely not," Keith tells CMT with a laugh. "[And I'm] definitely not Facebook-ing every night."
When Keith does sit down at his computer, it's because he's trying to connect with fans, to let them know what he's working on for them. He'll give updates on new music, post behind-the-scene videos from his tour and hopefully entice fans to his live show, where they can all share in that magic moment."

...so, the orb is not "on the twitter" and is not a "facebook-ing"...BIG SURPRISE...the orb is not TOO into the 21st century's latest technology...which surely explains why he's back to his "pre year 2000" 20th century popularity again! So obviously, the orb is on the "computing thing" to try and connect to his fans...you know, he's got his tour reactivating this summer...and he wants to get those overly priced scalped tickets to those obviously gullable monkeylanders... ASAP! And that would explain the absence of the pale one from any of this pre touring promo...he's been reading Urban Myths...on that "computing thing" he sits in front of...and has gotten the reason he just cant sell as many cds anymore! And the answer is to disassociate kidman from all his future promo.

martingano said...

He is a big fan of twitter and he tweets. The man gave the impression ages ago that he was computer simple. Such is not the case. He is always on the computer and I wouldn't put it past him to read all these blogs and put out those imfamous tweets himself.

...once again, the orb does NOT tweet...

abc said...

Well, martingano, I thought I'd check out Keith's twitter ... and it seems to me that his PR people do the tweets as it is mostly advertising and ones that seem to come from him are in "quotes" so he probably tells his people to upload his comments for him. He probably gets given printouts of stuff posted, such as on here, which I am certain that, if not him, then his PR would certainly be reading; they would certainly trawl everything to keep in touch with what the public is thinking; they wouldn't be doing their jobs if they didn't. It is clear that he has responded to the begging to leave Nicole out of his music and PR ...

I then decided to see if Nicole has a Twitter account and guess what: "it has been suspended" !!! I think, firstly, she doesn't have anything to say, and secondly, she must have gotten fed up with all the criticism and has pulled out of just about everything ... and I am sure has banned JJ (like NKU)from posting anything. Again, I have no doubt that her PR people would have been reading this blog and any others (they're all linked) and finally caught the drift!!! I think NK is embarassed and is in hiding. Will be interesting to see how this year plays out. We will no doubt see her at the ACMA's on Sunday, smiling like the cat that got the milk. Is that milk sour though?

I always said she should've gone out on her high; but was just too greedy! She gave herself away when she enviously lamented on Oprah that DDL "has it ALL".

Btw, I think Twitter is the most self-indulgent trite pathetic social tool ever ... in particular when we have to hear the kind of stuff that we just don't need to hear; like when a bath is taken or the telly is switched off or on etc etc ... please people; find something worthwhile in life to do except trying to be (more) famous ... there are quite enough twits out there already ... oh, and try and learn to spell; most of that crap looks so dumb! not "cool" at all.

well, there's my gripe done!

martingano said...

Maclean, I stand corrected however he still is not computer simple and I am sure he is on that computer doing "stuff"! I was under the impression that he was a twitter, tweeter whatever. I am not a fan and abc I agree with you about that and facebook. The world doesn't need to know when I eat and you are right, nobody can spell! And I am not surprised that Kidman's twitter has been suspended.

Should be interesting to see what awards show brings out - newly freshed Kidmans?

martingano said...
"Maclean, I stand corrected however he still is not computer simple and I am sure he is on that computer doing "stuff"! I was under the impression that he was a twitter, tweeter whatever. I am not a fan and abc I agree with you about that and facebook."

Well, martingano, do I believe orb simply surfs the net? Yeah I could believe that, but I would simply wager he is checking up on his fansite, and I agree with abc that he leaves the nets surfing for "reaction" to his people on the payroll. It is not a very good time for the orb to be checking out what is being commented about him...especially on this site! As for twitter...it is just the latest fad...just as friendster, and then myspace were all the rage awhile ago, twitter and facebook are just as worthless for any meaningful info...but those fansie's sure do need those "stalker tweets!"

maclen said...

...ps...

...so...the NKUser fansie's are now offically on "viewer" black out...due to shame and embarrassment! This from the NKU homepage...

http://www.nicolekidmanunited.com/

"IMPORTANT: Please note that the forum called "Nicoles Inbox" is closed to general viewing. We are trialling a special "Nicole News Desk"
forum with news only posts from our members. Catch the latest Nicole news in that forum here."

Ironic, a new "Nicole's News Desk"...when there is NO new news on kidman! Yes, take my word, comments in this new news desk will be at an absolute minimum!

maclen said...

So, JJ's 37 day black out of kidman's prearranged photo ops is over...

http://justjared.buzznet.com/2010/04/14/nicole-kidman-frozen-yogurt-sunday/

Nicole Kidman: Frozen Yogurt Sunday!

...so, can we assume that kidman is finished with filming her "super secret, uncredited" cameo...or did kidman notice the multitude of katie and suri photo ops littering Getty Images the past few weeks and wanted to get her kid in on the shilling! As to the newest photo ops...kidman is looking especially pale and pasty...no doubt from hiding out from the papparatz camera flashes for over a month!

mikki said...

maclen, you must be right. Kidman must be acting on the advise of her new manager who obviously thinks that she is over exposed and needs to avoid the cameras for a while. But a photo op in advance of the big awards show or any event is what she always does so she probably couldn't resist. It looks like shes been on a diet while shes been away. Hope whatever shes wearing to the awards show covers the bones in her chest!

maclen said...

mikki said...

"maclen, you must be right. Kidman must be acting on the advise of her new manager who obviously thinks that she is over exposed and needs to avoid the cameras for a while. But a photo op in advance of the big awards show or any event is what she always does so she probably couldn't resist."

Ah yes, mikki, that's a good point. I didnt realize the ACM awards were this sunday! And we all are aware how kidman likes to try and steal the limelight when orb has a function! Seems that also, kidman is reported to be attending a shindig for German chancellor Merkel, in merkel's visit to lalaland...

http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/0,1518,689143,00.html

Chancellor Merkel Discovers Glitz and Glamour

...so, again, as an orb awards show is gearing up , kidman is back into her shilling and attention game! Also, mikki, seems the daily mail agrees with you regarding kidman's boney body...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1266231/Frozen-yoghurt-wont-help-build-Nicole-Kidman-Keith-Urban-treat-daughter-Sunday-Rose.html

That won't fill you up! Nicole Kidman looks painfully thin as she goes for fat-free frozen yoghurt with Sunday Rose

Ha! I doubt if the fansie shut ins will be posting that in their new News desk...which they point out is basically only a "news posting" thread!

maclen said...

...ps...

...so a quick update on that German Chancellor Merkel luncheon date...

http://www.bild.de/BILD/news/bild-english/world-news/2010/04/15/chancellor-meets-the-stars/angela-merkels-day-in-hollywood.html

"US celebs including Bruce Willis and Nicole Kidman made themselves a little scarce having accepted but not turned up."

...yes, completely on par with "limo ambassador" kidman's shabby social etiquette...I doubt if the "great humanitarian's" inept team even bothered to send a notice of regret...she was just a "no show!" Well, it's no wonder her career is over... which brings me to another story...it seems the Cannes film festival released this years film line up...

http://news-briefs.ew.com/2010/04/15/cannes-festival-2010-lineup/

...and just as I expected, kidman's Rabbit Hole is nowhere to be seen.
And yeah, Ive read films not announced in todays line may still make an appearence at Cannes...but really, I fully expect it NOT to be at Cannes. Another interesting note...two films kidman "passed on" due to "scheduling conflicts"... the valerie plame bio pic, "Fair Game and woody allen's "You will meet a tall dark stranger" ARE on the festival list. Seems kidman has a knack for picking films with very shoddy expectations! BUT...kidman did at least get in a photo op at the yogurt shop...victory is her's!!

Mikki wrote "Hope whatever shes wearing to the awards show covers the bones in her chest"
Just an observation. Why is there a need to be that skinny, to keep her face fat-free (at one point her heavy bottom face/neck was pointed out)? She better watch it at her age, all kinds of long term body deprived illnesses will set in -. Also, her fashion is cliche retro, doesn't she do out & about socially with her peers to pick up what's hip contemporary (instead of sporadic imitations she's known for)??? Turning into a quaint old recluse this one....

Thank you - I thought I saw a tweet from him!

All the luggage has been thrown on the bus, getting ready to head to AZ for Country Thunder tomorrow. See you there.
about 6 hours ago via web

hoosierlady said...

Well, this week's Country Weekly has him mentioning his beloved again. Sorry Ladies! He is talking about the trip to Jordan and Nicole (Yoko) being the godmother to the kids.

What exactly is it that you see with this guy?

maclen said...

hoosierlady said...
"What exactly is it that you see with this guy?"

Ha! Yes, for a moment there I thought I was over at monkeyland! So orb posts, lets see....twice in 19 posted tweets showing on the home page...the other 17 by paid hacks...and the fansies positively swoon! Dont include the tweet with the acm award pic...orb seems to only posts a sentence at a time...I doubt if he can post any links...so orb's tweet page is "monkeyland-lite!" Again, his tweet page is about as impersonal as his fansie site... 90% promo...9.9% touring updates...and 0.1% thanks yous! Clearly shows why his fanbase is shrinking.

maclen said...

So, courtesy of the kidman fansie's "commentless" News Desk...(where "Discussion by members is here...in the newly PRIVATE "Inbox")...comes this rather typical news piece...

http://www.looktothestars.org/news/4205-red-cross-charity-gala-to-honor-jada-pinkett-smith

Red Cross Charity Gala To Honor Jada Pinkett Smith

"Among the stars involved with the event are Chairs Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman, Jane Seymour, Olivia Newton-John, Brian Dennehy and Rachel Griffiths..."

...and as mikki first pointed out...on the eve of orb's appearence on the ACM awards tomorrow... "co-chair" kidman has a "function" planned...to no doubt have "competing" photo ops released...for surely kidman could not have the orb dominate solely on that front! God forbid that the orb be the center of ALL THE ATTENTION tomorrow, right? So again, my hat's off to mikki for pointing this rather obvious fact out! Now, on the other face, lets just wait to see if "no show" kidman actually...you know..bothers to show up...seeing how she already got her online promo out of it from the "Look to the Stars: the world of Celebrity Giving" website!

maclen said...

So, in this "E-o'-L-N-M's"...

...it seems that the fansie"s resident paparatz or inept team kidman insider has actually provided the addicts with a photo of kidman on the set of the sandler pic. (Notice only one pic on the new "news desk"...I'm sure the newly "private" Inbox has the full set of 12 to 15...and I'm just wondering, will those photos make it onto JJ or GG?) Hey, everyone reading this...go to the link...

...and check out the "super secret uncredited" cameo "photo on set" kidman is readying to spring forward in a self "rejuvinating" cameo that she believes will transform her washed up career! Wearing a bright orange rather longish wig...seems that my previous speculative thought...which I posted back on March 11...

"So, kidman, who obviously wants to make a big splash with this cameo...what are the odds that she trys to play off the whole "plastic surgery and botox" issue she has never ever addressed meaningfully and simply denies? For it's common knowledge...it is PR 101 in lalaland...when confronted with controversial issues...private scandals...celebs will go onto talk shows or oprah, and make fun of themselves. You know, the idea is to get people laughing WITH you...and not AT you? So kidman's cameo will be that she plays a woman who goes to sandler to get a "few" procedures done..."

...seems to me, based on that photo of kidman in that longish orange wig, reminds me of kidman's look back in the mid 90's...as she wore it in the batman film she did for instance... that kidman will play a "client" of sandler the plastic surgeon who is made to look "younger!" Which of course is kidman #1 obsession! Boy, if that turns out to be the gist of the role...HOW ORIGINAL! No one could have quessed, or surmissed that one! Well I'm sure the fansie's are having a rather spirited discussion with that one...in their shut in little "crack" cave...with those shades drawn...I'd bet that recently lucid fansies who think this cameo is a joke...wont think it's very clever or witty either!
And the rest of the completely deluded fansies...the joke will be on them, Im pretty sure...for surely they've delluded themselves into thinking kidman is completely "facial procedurally" free...and therefore, they wont get the joke!

So, an update on the "kidman on set" "papparatz" pics for her cameo on the sandler flick. So late last night I pointed out that the fansies already have the photos and wondered, or more precisely, doubted they would be posted at JJ or GG...well its seems that the photos were posted at NKU back on the 15th! So the NKUser/papparatz "crack" pusher posted the pics 3 days ago...and a quick search at JJ shows no photos of kidman on set. Even GettyImages, which I mentioned just a few days ago had a series of photo sets of katie holmes filming in NY...over a hundred pics...has no photos of his 3 day old set of "kidman on set" pics...(in fact the last photo's of kidman at Getty Images were back in march 13, and typically, it is of kidman's mum's birthday outing with the inlaws!...which you all may recall was the start of the "PR black out", which included the NKUser's site!)...hich again, the fansies already had posted on the 8th! MOntag's film shoot on this pic was covered quite extensively...as of course was sandler's and aniston's. And now it seems the fansie site is the only online site that has these photos. So, does anyone want to doubt that inept team kidman has clearly stamped down on any "public" coverage of kidman working on this flick? So again, I see right through the rather transparent and inept PR stunts that kidman and her band of amateur hacks are pitifully implementing...stunts that have only grounded kidman's dead career into the ground...and to a state of open mockery...on all fronts!
