Happy Anniversary to the Kidman Urbans!

There have been SO many pics of the loved-up, crazy-in-love couple, we just couldn't post them ALL! So here's one of our favorites!

Edited (for blue sky) to add: WARNING... do not scroll down if you have a full stomach, are considering eating in the next few hours, are allergic to fish, have an aversion to suckerfish, are afraid of vampires, or are just plain in fear of being swallowed alive. Of course if you fear for your heart and soul and your muse, too late.

Could you please put some type of warning above the latest blog entry? My grouper from my dinner just came up into my throat. Thank you.

Ooh, that Nicole Kidman is such a rare beauty. And what great lips to kiss too. Seriously, looks like she is going to bite him.

Done. So sorry about your dinner.

blue sky said...

That's just "lovely"! We are saving others from having bile, vomit, etc., come up in their throats now. Does that make us "medical" as well? After looking at Nicole's roots here, I wonder if she is coloring her hair on a weekly basis to cover her gray roots since she has gone back to her "natural" red or is she a "natural" blonde? I can't keep track of all the lies.

joy said...

Really now, like we are all exactly photogenic when we are kissing our spouse each & every time---not! Nobody is perfect at anything especially displays of affection.

At least they are still married, kissing & not filing restraining orders against each other like some couples.

If we had to be critiqued on every move we make we'd all be in serious trouble.

The ONLY 2 people who REALLY know what is going on with their relationship is Keith & Nicole Urban. I hope they see MANY MANY MANY anniversaries married, together, happy, healthy & still very much in love with each other. When someone finds a special person to be with all their lives it's a true blessing. Hopefully Sunday will be able to celebrate anniversary #25 in a big way with her mom & dad & much happiness.

Much better them happily together than him in rehab again or under a cold stone in a cemetary somewhere. We may not like all of her "ways" but let's face it Keith loves her & he is happy. I have nothing personal against her because I do NOT know her. He chose her as his wife & they are making their life together.

Wishing them the very best always.

mikki said...

Joy, your right. No one know whats really going on in the relationship except these two. Interesting that you would contradict your own statement by saying that Keith loves her when you have no way of knowing if thats true or its all for publicity. That is simply your own conclusion. Unless of course you know Keith. (You did make a point of saying you don't know NK).

It also seems to be your conclusion that NK somehow saved him from his demons. While others feel that his last trip to rehab was directly attributed to her. Its all in how you see things of course.

My opinion of the photo, just more evidence of how awkward they are when they attempt displays of affection for the cameras. They never appear that they have had much practice (or rehearsal).

Sorry, we all like a happy ending. Theres just too much suspicion surrounding this couple to buy into the fairytale.

I love your post hoosierlady. I think I will follow your direction.

Choice said...

Hoosierlady,
I think I will follow your lead too.
Here goes: I will only say nice things from now on. Nicole is a stunning creature with gorgeous locks and lips. Keith is so lucky to have her. As she is to have him. The world would be empty without these two.

Thank you lord for the Kurbans.

Choice xxxxx

Well, mikki you are absolutely right. I do NOT know Keith except through his music & his interviews. I was going from what HE'S said about his love for his wife. If I have to make the choice of if they have a committed relationship or one that's for publicity I go for the committed one (IN MY OPINION). He waited half his life before he actually said "I Do" so I would hope that he truly meant it for a lifetime. If he's just putting on a show with her he's a better actor than she is. He looks like a man truly & totally in love. He was a definite "mess" a few years ago. Another musician caught up in drugs & the life of a performer but he has changed for the better & I personally think she has been a major part of that change (not the total reason but part of the reason he changed). Is she a saint-definitley not, is she perfect-heck no, does she have personal issues-don't we all, is she finding her career winding down as she ages-I believe so, is their marriage perfect-not even close (I assume). But for what it's worth they did stand before God & family & friends to commit themselves together for life. I would hope they both would take that very seriously. That's not done for publicity (in my book) by any means.

Whether we like it or not Keith is married to Nicole, they have a daughter(Sunday Rose) together, she has 2 children (Bella & Conner)from her first marriage with Tom Cruise & that's their life. They have to sort out everything in a blended family just like we all do every day. Just because they perform in front of millions of people doesn't make them less human than any of us. They will meet the same end as we all will. It's what they do from birth until death that makes the difference. Sorry if I'm getting too deep. But really & truly they are just flawed people like you & me-no better, no worse. We just see, read about & hear almost everything they do in their daily lives. Our lives are private for the most part. Again I wish them MANY MANY MANY years of married happiness & health & truly hope that they get to celebrate # 25 even together even happier than they are now.

Tara said...

Well to those who know him through his interviews... perhaps you can explain a recent interview Keith gave where he said that the demons he thought were kept away are always there. Interesting isn't it? Seems babydull and photo op fatherhood can't keep those troubles away. Good for him for finally admitting that he does still have those demons. Addiction isn't over because you did your 90 days at Betty Ford.

hoosierlady said...

I hope you know that is sarcasm, choice, you do know on which side of the fence I am.

Joy,

he snorts 4 lines, and drinks two glasses of wine before every concert. I know this because of interviews that I see, and YOU DON'T.

Now, how well do you REALLY know him?

mikki said...

Ah Joy, you are a true Keith fan. All is good in his life and its all because of his Queen. Can't debate you, if Keith said it, it must be true.

A440 summed it up perfectly...
NK is his everything, his savior, his muse, his goddess, his breath, his reason for living. She and she alone is responsible for his life, his happiness, his future, his soul. His life before her was irrevelant. It all begins and ends with her.

Says Keith, his life with NK is perfect. The marriage is perfect. Homelife is perfect. Being a parent is perfect. The baby is perfect. Every new day is simply perfect. Never so much as a difference of opinion between Keith and Nicole.

Thats not the real world Joy. Thats PR!!!

Thanks A440, well done.

"Well to those who know him through his interviews... perhaps you can explain a recent interview Keith gave where he said that the demons he thought were kept away are always there."


Seems like the orb is constantly grasping for a "promotional" theme that can be successful. Last year's "happy" and "poppy" Defying Sales was a dud...so it appeared earlier this year as he began his live gigs...that he was going to "distance" himself from kidman...as no mention of kidman was forthcoming from orb...or the reviewers. Then, as it went into mid year...it became clear kidman's career was dead...and orb was back to kidman shilling and public catering. Seems orb is trying now to give himself some "street cred" with trying to play up the whole "you dont know the troubles I've seen" through his addiction past. Obviously, the whole rehab stint DIDNT help his career...and admitting that it's still "around" isnt going to change much.

smorgas91 said...

Good God, Joy.....what are you on... where can I get some????

JOY said...

"""Well to those who know him through his interviews... perhaps you can explain a recent interview Keith gave where he said that the demons he thought were kept away are always there."""

Although I have no first hand knowledge of this I wouldn't be surprised that "the demons" are always around a recovering addict. That's why they are never 100% fully recovered. It is a work in progress their entire lives (I UNDERSTAND).

I've never said Keith & Nicole's lives/marriage/careers were perfect. I don't think they've said that either (they'd be foolish if they did). If anything I've said neither one of them is perfect & that's what makes them very flawed & very human. I put NO credit for anything in my life to Keith or Nicole Urban except enjoyment of his music. That's it. Really (when it comes down to it)I have no concern for either of them other than as fellow human beings, and as a musician who performs music I like and as the woman that musician is married to. I could say basically the same for Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, the members of Rascal Flatts, Sammy Kershaw, Easton Corbin, Kellie Pickler and MANY MANY other performers of music, television and movies that I enjoy. I am a fan and that is all. I don't revolve around their lives and they don't revolve around mine.

Who is to say that Keith didn't find something greater in his life at The Betty Ford Center than drugs or even Nicole. I can't say he did or he didn't. We will never know & we don't need to know. I certainly hope he came out a much better person with a deeper outlook on his life than when he went in (Again just my hope. I didn't counsel or treat him when he was there).

Basically all I'm saying is they are who they are, we are who we are & that's what it is. Nothing more, nothing less. If he stopped making music today my life wouldn't end & neither would his (I think). But as long as he is making music I will continue to be a "fan" nothing else.

Glad that we all , no matter what we think of this issue, can discuss it here as adults. We can have our opinions & agree to disagree. Thanks y'all.

smorgas91 said...
"Good God, Joy.....what are you on... where can I get some????"

I am on nothing but faith, hope, love and grace as I've always been. My life is filled with too many negatives to let it roll over onto the life of a musician I don't even know. So I'd rather take the positive road whenever I can. Call that whatever you will but hey it's a good way for me to live.

maclen said...

...ps...

...case in point...I actually noticed this last night...this "promotional" piece from the boot...

http://www.theboot.com/2010/06/25/keith-urban-songs/

Keith Urban's Songs Speak Untold Truths

"Keith Urban has endured plenty of ups and downs throughout his life and says his lyrics often reveal where he is, and sometimes even reflect the dark places he's heading towards before he even realizes it himself.""Keith says a prime example was back in 2006, as he relapsed into addiction and subsequently checked himself into rehab to address the problem. "I didn't sense that there were major problems going on in my own internal self, but the songs started to reflect it faster than me.""Luckily, his latest album, 'Defying Gravity,' reflects an overall sense of happiness and peace, and Keith says even losing his beloved guitars to the recent Nashville flood can't dampen his uplifted spirits these days -- though he may hang onto some of the guitars just because he's too attached to them to let the warped and damaged instruments go.""I just have more of a willingness these days to maintain that balance," he says, "and life is a much more enjoyable experience. I take the flood as a sign to find new things and write new songs with new guitars. If you're a guitarist, at the end of the day, you can make music with any guitar."
Keith is reportedly one-third of the way through recording his upcoming CD, and describes the songs as having "a different weight this time around."

Now, outside of the "glibness" of how he takes the "flood" as a sign to him to find "new things" to write about...or to play with new guitars...again pretty shallow to try to use a tragic flood as "inspiration" to help his career along. This attempt to constantly "define" his career phases...whole crazy cd "defines his troubled period"...Defying Sales cd defines his "happy and joyous" period...now apparently, "the flood" is going to to give the songs on his next cd "a different weight this time around."...because, I guess, the flood destroyed his old guitars and he is now forced to play with new guitars? And I guess he insists that as a "guitarist" he can "make music with any guitar!" But seriously, the "weight" of the music is not defined in a blog interview...it's in the music, and from what ive heard and seen of orb music...orb has no weight. And to repeat...simply playing on NEW guitars will not give them new "WEIGHT!"

hoosierlady said...

Oh boy, now we get to enjoy a 40 something guy get philosophical, or, at least make an attempt to?

He's smoking the same stuff as Joy, Smorgas91, and I'm pretty sure it must be coming through at the Arkansas border via the councelwoman who didn't realize her state bordered Mexico.

This is going to be good, and good timing too, summer session is starting and I'll need the diversion!

maclen said...

hoosierlady said...
"Oh boy, now we get to enjoy a 40 something guy get philosophical, or, at least make an attempt to?"

Yes, hoosier, I clearly see the orb getting bogged down in this kind of pretensious platitudes he learned from kidman. Based on this interview, I wouldnt be surprised at all if orb ties his next album to the flooding in Tennessee...which he is clearly pointing to in this article. I'm predicting this wont be the last time you'll hear about how because of the damage to his guitars from the flooding...he HAD to make the music on new guitars...and therefore HAD to overcome so much to get it done...and how it really raised the "weight" of the songs! There will no doubt be a few songs "inspired" by the Tenn flooding the orb will be promoting when the cd comes out. I mean, what better than disaster relief of tennessee flooding to help shill his next cd? And no doubt the orb will surely use kidman's "limo" to seminate that info!

Laura said...

Joy, you are so right. THANK YOU!

Keith waited half of his life to say "I do" and I'd hope that it wasn't for P.R, either.

abc said...

hoosierlady said:

"he snorts 4 lines, and drinks two glasses of wine before every concert. I know this"

You're just kidding, right? If this is not true then that is a serious allegation to make. If it is true, then the 'euphoria' and 'happiness' that we see is chemically induced and not necessarily attributable to the 'love's of his life, and many many are being hoodwinked. I would be very disappointed in Keith if this is indeed true. His public commitment to his sobriety is the thing I admired most about him.

Joy, you say your life is full of negatives; I think Keith offers an "escape" for those like you who have lousy lives and he cheers them up. I know a lot of people in your position. That is Keith's 'hook'.

Tara said...

back a long time ago there was an effort made to create a core fan base for Keith- thats where the barefoot long haired lover poet persona (hook) came from... remember it's show biz

he may have waited to marry but the man was never alone- two broken engagements a slew of women all over the country- he just made a good deal four years ago.

I will say however he has written some very, rich meaningful music over the years. That is why so many of us can't stand the froth he has been putting out since babydull came into his life he can and has done better.

blue sky said...

Hold on a second abc, Keith hoodwinked his fans into thinking he was sober all this time before the Fall of 2006. Three months in Betty Ford obviously means he had some serious issues. The image he was portraying was not the real one. So I respectfully ask, can the admiration still be there when he fooled us all with his continued public commitment to his sobriety and then had to make another extended stay in rehab? Who would you admire more - someone who goes into rehab once and is clean for life or someone who has to keep going back to get cleaned up?

JOY said...

""""Joy, you say your life is full of negatives; I think Keith offers an "escape" for those like you who have lousy lives and he cheers them up. I know a lot of people in your position. That is Keith's 'hook'.""""

The only "escape" he "offered" me was great music to listen to while I exercised. That's it. It kept me motivated & made the workout go a lot faster (made it fun not so much work). That's why I started listening to Keith's music. I didn't even know who he was until a friend let me borrow one of her DVDs of Keith to exercise to. I started liking the music, the motivation to keep exercising and I bought more of his past music as well as new stuff he put out. I became a fan.

My life may have negatives but I'd hardly call it lousy. In fact I am truly blessed in many ways.

Y'all have a good day, now.

abc said...

the big difference, blue sky, is whether one goes clean for oneself, or for someone else or others (management etc)

blue sky said...

That's true abc! Because he wouldn't be alive right now due to his wife saving him, I don't have faith in his eternal sobriety.

A440 said...

The fact that Keith booked a concert on their anniversary is telling. At least this year, work came before face time with La Kidman.

Wonder how that went over with Queenie -- who was more than happy to scuttle Father's Day in preference to celebrating her birthday, which was spent mostly in transit. Transit that could have been taken earlier.

Do I smell a bit of hesitation at the prospect of coming home?

Hmmm?

PS: A belated tks to mikki for the shout-out!

And abc, having a lot of "negatives" in your life does not mean your life is lousy. Such an ignorant thing for you to say. Life comes with its positives and its negatives.

Yall aren't as smart as you think.

Kidman was in Kansas the day of their anniversary but of course would not come out on the stage when Keith dedicated a song to her - Kidman with the unwashed masses? Never. They couldn't be seen not together on that sacred day and she stayed on for the second concert the next day. Make your assumptions about that one.

Well, I for one am SHOCKED! You do realize, hoosier, that you have just opened yourself up for a SERIOUS case of slander and defamation! Those activist orb fansies will no doubt "relay" your comments to the proper "investigating authorities" and you will soon be notified of their results!

Me thinks the "sarcasm" was missed, hoosier.

Now, considering that the orb has apparently been about 8 years in between rehab stints...it is not at all "improbable"...and odds are most probable that orb could have another relapse. And considering that even the orb's fansies had absolutely no clue whatsoever...or even an inkling...even based on orb's recent comments of how his songs actually reflect how he is "doing"...that the orb was in "serious" trouble in late 2006 that landed him in rehab again. And I seriously doubt that they would now have an "inkling" at all if he WAS back on the road to rehab. It is all speculative...but again, based on the actual facts...and the statistics...I would bet on the side of probable "relapse." For I would also be willing to bet the fansie's also believed the orb when he no doubt claimed it was the best time in his life when he married kidman...yet wound up in rehab only 4 months later. Again, the main point of it all is to just realize...do not listen to what they say...but what they actually do.

Yeah, this episode reminds me of orb's Canadian tour last year...where prior to arriving in Canada, orb made the point of saying in an interview that the Canadian tour would be a "family affair." And about the third gig in...there were "reports" in the papers...and even announced by the orb on stage, that he and kidman had been out to the zoo in Calgary...and orb announces that kidman is "in the house"...yet all concert reviewers who mentioned it in their reviews never actually saw kidman at the concert. It was not until kidman was photographed arriving in Edmonton...about 2 or 3 days later... that were there any actual corraberating evident that kidman was finally in Canada. And I certainly made the point back in Sept 2009...that it was simply orb's PR BS that it would be a "family tour"...yet by all evidence is that kidman actually arrived 4 days later after the canadian tour began and that orb "portraying" kidman at the calgary gig on sept 18-19 2009, when all proof was that she didnt actually "arrive" in canada... in edmonton on sept 21, 2009 when pics of kidman were finally plastered on canadian papers. So, yeah, it WAS just orb's PR BS that she was at the Calgary gigs last year...as it seems it was important for orb to "portray" kidman at this gig...yet seems no other reliable proof, photos or eyewitness' account actually placing kidman "in the house" especially on that important day as their anniversary!

mikki said...

I got you sarcasm too hoosierlady.

Maclen, Keith is learning from NK who learned from the best, Cruise. If he should ever relapse again, the public won't get wind of it the next time.

Gotta give credit where its due. When the story broke about Keith going to rehab it was all about cheating, drugs and alcohol. NK was able to manipulate that story away from the cheating and drugs so that, in time, it was just an alcohol problem. And thats what many believe today! Amanda? Well, that wasn't Keith's fault. It was the alcohol. Amazing!!!

Laura said...

http://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/people/oprah-tops-forbes-celebrity-power-list-20100629-zh87.html

"Keith Urban replaces wife Nicole Kidman on this year's powerful list. Kidman, who last year ranked 74th, is missing from this year's top 100, while Urban joins the list at number 76 with earnings of $US27.5 million ($A31.55 million)."

HA! So tell me, if he's more powerful than her, and has more money than she does, then why would he stick around? Oh yeah.. because he LOVES HER! You say he's in it for the money and the fame.. Well guess what, he had all of that BEFORE her and he STILL has it. So what's your next excuse?

mikki said...

Laura, its true that Keith's tour made $27.5 million. However, he had other artists on the bill for every show who received half that gross. So because its HIS tour he gets full credit for the $27.5 mil but in fact his take was less than $14 mil. And thats before taxes, paying his band and crew, management, expenses, etc.

Hes more powerful than her and has more money than her??? Thats what you got from this article? Even if he actually made the $27.5 mil (which he didn't), its a long way from the estimated $200 million that NK has. So I'm guessing that hes staying around hoping one day he WILL have the level of fame and incredible wealth that she has. Because I think thats what hes really attracted to.

maclen said...

Ah yes, orb "earned" $27mil...and kidman is recently...well, this year...a washout on this year's Forbes list! Well, that surely helps prove kidman is finished! Now, as to the orb...that $27mil no doubt is from last years concert tour...most of it surely is...and only a "fraction" of it is no doubt from his poorly selling cd sales! And of those royalties, Id say 90 to 98% went to Cap nash...if not ALL monies going to the music studio... seeing as Defying Sales sold SOOOO poorly and so massively underperformed, orb is clearly "in the red" to Cap Nash regarding that cd. Now when you then consider the costs of a 8 to 9 months tour...paying his band...the roadies and touring personel...food and lodgings...travel expenses...fuel costs...perhaps a few local teamster unions here and there for emergencies...and etc and etc...orb IS the employer...I really doubt orb is gonna actually keep even say....a third of that gross! So maybe your looking at maybe $9mil...and dont forget the TAXES...yeah, not so impressive when you really think about it!

maclen said...

mikki said...
"I got you sarcasm too hoosierlady.

Maclen, Keith is learning from NK who learned from the best, Cruise. If he should ever relapse again, the public won't get wind of it the next time."

Well, mikki, I have no doubt kidman "watered" down the reason for the stay in rehab in 2006 to simple alcohol abuse...the stint orb spent in rehab in 1998 was for cocaine abuse! But as recent events show...celeb cheating sex scandals are far more devastating to their reps than drug...or alcohol rehab scandals...just ask tiger woods...or jesse james and john edwards! Now, just as devastating as sex scandals, ethnic slurs are in that league...just ask mel "f@*king Jews" gibson...micheal "n-word" richards...or...john "david duke c@*K" mayer...who orb now pals around with! NOT at all shrewed! Now as to those orb cheating rumors back in 2006...clearly the TRUE reason kidman packed orb away in rehab...for "alcohol abuse!"

smorgas91 said...

(Read thru the grapevine...however whether or not where KU parents live should be verifiable) Why doesn't KU help his birth family move from apparently the wrong side of the tracks...too low for NK family to take them on as equals....? He should set them up to the style they should be accustomed to by having a son who makes average A-level celebrity income then!

blue sky said...

Comments to a few on here:

hoosierlady - don't fret over legal action. Their lawyers and management teams are all in the Land of Make Believe. The whole lot of them is crazy. Don't loose any sleep over your sarcasm!

mikki - the question is - if a guy's marriage is so perfect and wonderful, why would he have to go out and cheat, do drugs and alcohol? Amanda was the bad one to the fansies, even though they haven't yet figured out the concept that it takes two to tango or cheat.

Laura - maybe you need a calculator in front of you. This was for ONE year. Of course her income would be substantially less - she hardly worked. Let's compare what they have in the "bank", and Nicole beats Keith hands down in the cash flow department, along with Tom's divorce settlement. Also, what Keith made in that year is just a tad over what Nicole brings home when she is a main character in a movie. Well, not any longer since she is officially box off poison. Nicole isn't highly regarded for her acting now as she was just before the couple united. This comparison is irrelevant.

THE URBANS ARE TRYING TO HAVE US BELIEVE ALL IS ‘PERFECT’ IN THEIR WORLD; HENCE THE “MYTHBUSTERS’ DOUBTS. WE ALL KNOW ‘GOD’ IS THE HERO AT REHAB, BUT KU HAS MADE IT VERY CLEAR THAT NICOLE IS HIS SAVIOUR; “THANK-YOU”. HE DOES ALWAYS SAY ‘GOD BLESS’.

OF COURSE, EVERY LIFE IS ALSO BLESSED, LIFE ITSELF IS A BLESSING; HOWEVER, THE POINT I WAS MAKING IS THAT KEITH IS A SPIRITUAL HERO TO MANY WHO ARE DOWN, HENCE HIS “LOVE PAIN” “ESCAPE TOGETHER” “DEFY GRAVITY” – DON’T STAY OR GET DOWN ETC ETC

TO Hoosierlady:

I normally really enjoy your sense of humour, but must admit I missed the ‘sarcasm’ in your comment (joke) re Keith imbibing. Guess I take sobriety really seriously and would be highly disappointed if Keith fell off the wagon. I just can’t understand that he still “has demons” even though his life is filled with SO MUCH of EVERYTHING!

What the hell (more) does it take to be completely fulfilled and at peace????!!!!!

Hey, I didn't know about and ever heard of KU either, only in relation to her, and only reason she's noticed because who she was before and we'd come to witness as to who she really is, post-Hour,the movie, today is dumbfounding. She should have thanked cruise for all the years she was with him and he taking the brunt of PR skepticism. Hey, I think the real nutcase and the baseket case in that relationship was her, not cruise! Similarly, look what's happening and who's coming under heavier microscopic scruity, her current man. You don't care about her, yeah I get it, but the real culprit is granny, aka "Third Lip", with fake pregnancy. For KU sake, hope at least the baby is part him...(yeah and so not into turning the table on the bloggers themselves....)

Tara said...

Boy the Kidman PR machines wants YOU to KNOW that Keith and Nicole were TOGETHER this WEEKEND.
Two different articles about seeing them- although in one of the articles Kidman was Keith was with a woman and a large body guard getting his damn coffee. The other is they took over a gym to work out. But they were TOGETHER.

Interesting isn't it?

mikki said...

I saw those articles Tara. Keith, in a cowboy hat and sunglasses, stops for coffee with a woman and a bodyguard. He is not immediately recognized. The woman is not identified as NK. But somehow it was known that the third person was a bodyguard.

The other story, they made it a point to say that they did not want any pictures taken. But left their autographs as they were leaving.

Yeah, it was interesting.

blue sky said...

"Keith, in a cowboy hat and sunglasses"

Since when does he go out in public with a cowboy hat on? If they recognized him in a cowboy hat and sunglasses, but didn't recognize Nicole as the other woman, how bad was her natural appearance that day?

hoosierlady said...

JOY said...

We may not like all of her "ways" but let's face it Keith loves her & he is happy. I have nothing personal against her because I do NOT know her. He chose her as his wife & they are making their life together.


But for what it's worth they did stand before God & family & friends to commit themselves together for life. I would hope they both would take that very seriously. That's not done for publicity (in my book) by any means.

Sorry if I'm getting too deep


Then Hoosierlady snapped.

My apologies to anyone that I offended, but, come on, we're blogging in cyberspace about plastic people.

We're doing a running commentary on Barbie and Ken. We don't have the foggiest notion what these "people", and I use the term very broadly, because I am starting to wonder, (wink), are really like, or what they do or think, how they procreate, if they do, if they are in love, if they sleep in the same room or state, for that matter. We know NOTHING. We will know NOTHING. We see pictures of them walking in and out of places, and we comment. We see pictures of our gal at premeires and awards shows and we get to see her do some pretty outrages wardrobe and makeup mishaps. My personal favorite is when she opens her mouth, I know some of you enjoy looking at the orb, I understand, some of you even enjoy his music, I understand that too, but come on, there are a few people commenting here that are just over the top on this KUNK bandwagon. I have made myself clear about this before, (remember telling me to calm down when I said I wanted to slap someone?) and I have tried, but sometimes, AUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Please, can't someone ask her to try to see the humor in this? Can someone try to explain that we've been watching these two for years and they are just as much fun as a barrel of monkeys, and if you can't lighten up a little bit, Aunt Hoosierlady, (I almost typed my real name, that was close) may have an anurysm and then who is going to relieve MacClen when he needs a day off?
Again, you are right to chastise me regarding the drug comment. Orb has a drug problem. I shouldn't have said that, but in my own defense, just for a second, who reads this but us? No one would believe me, everyone would know I'm just a blogger, blogging.

I will be more careful in the future.

From people.com:


Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's Anniversary Love-Fest

By Kay West

Tuesday June 29, 2010 04:05 PM EDT

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have been in a celebratory mood lately.

Last week, the couple shared a romantic dinner at the Nashville restaurant Flyte where they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary. Over dinner the lovebirds got cozy in an intimate corner of the restaurant – which is a Nashville favorite frequented by stars such as Shania Twain, Gwyneth Paltrow and Taylor Swift.

"[Nicole] looked stunning, very understated in a sleeveless dress and sandals," says one observer. "They were smiling and holding hands across the table. You could tell they were so in love."

Urban Myths said...

Sorry, here's the rest:

After their meal, the twosome chatted with restaurant staff, who described the couple as "a delight."

And that wasn't the only night for partying: On June 20, they had a joint celebration for Kidman's 43rd birthday and Father's Day. Another birthday cake is in store for the family when Sunday Rose turns 2 on July 7.

mikki said...

I get you hoosierlady! You are correct. We see only what they want us to see. Countless pictures of them at Starbucks but never one picture of them in or near their home together. Not even driving in and out of their driveway. Their so "private" and yet there are hundreds of pictures of them. Fans believe thats because their followed everywhere by the paparazzi. Skeptics can see that its always the same photo sites posting the pictures - JJ and GG. They claimed they didn't want Sunday photographed and yet in 20 months she has been exposed to the media approximately 70 times. We are to believe that NK not only sees her other children but she has no problem protecting THEM from the cameras. There are so many "gotcha moments". And it is fun watching these two try to pull it off. And thats only part of the show. Whats really going on in the careers of "Barbie and Ken" is even better. Their entertainers hoosierlady. Their putting it all out there, enjoy it!!

"And that wasn't the only night for partying: On June 20, they had a joint celebration for Kidman's 43rd birthday and Father's Day."

HA! Hilarious Urban myths!...It seems inept team kidman trumped the orb's "hugely important" announcement that they were gonna skip father's day to celebrate kidman. I sense that inept team kidman's "intertubes" monitor got wind of the mocking here at UM! So they leaked it to People.com that they DID in fact celebrate Father's day...it seems they DID do what so many were simply explaining...and that was to just celebrate both. Well, my advice to orb...check with inept team kidman first before you try to propagate PR BS...or you'll just end up looking rather foolish!

maclen said...

Well, hoosier, dont be too hard on yourself! You in fact have the whole big picture here right on target. You put it all rather succinctly...and I wont try expand on your eloquent comment.
Now, as to the fansies? It seems to me they take what is said on this blog very personally. In fact, in my opinion a little too personal. As I may have stated once before...or not...I'm not sure...but I'll state it now..."Why do the fansies CARE what we may say or think? Despite their usual rants, it seems to me that it does matter what we say to think about kidman and orb...otherwise they wouldnt respond. I no longer care what fawning or defensive fansies have to say in favor of them, and have stopped responding to MOST of them...and will only respond to facts presented to try and make a point...such as the orb's grossing $27mil last year...and how that supposedly makes him now "powerful" and so I simply try to show how it really doesnt! And really, I guess I wont stop commenting on orb...until he is acknowledged to be as finished as an A list celeb...and is in fact in the process of sliding down those levels...and is at the bottom of the totem pole as kidman. And I do see the orb falling...and I do see the attempts he is making to claw back...and so I chronologize it here on this blog. But I dont ever question the whys...or the wherefores...etc. You try to analyze it hoosier, and you'll tie yourself in knots!

smorgas91 said...

Aw.....(puke).....how...............nice.........................(puke)

blue sky said...

Well, this is more writings from Team Kidman! I'm really starting to get good at this. The first "fact" in the story is how stunning she looked, and then it goes onto how they couldn't keep their hands off of each other. What about Keith's appearance? Why is that never brought up in the story? They just use the same story every time, but copy and paste the city, restaurant name, and description of her clothing.

We've all seen several Twitter pictures of the couple eating out, and why is it that they aren't canoodling and holding hands in those pictures?

Remember the pictures from Oz when she announced she was pregnant? One set was out to lunch with that horrible looking dress in which she was trying to make it look like she was seven months pregnant, and the other was out to dinner with the dress and floral hair piece that didn't match. Instead of looking in love, she was having a pretty intense conversation with him.

I'll take the pictures over the "Get Kidman's Name Out There Now" stories!

mikki said...

Yes maclen, we're not suppose to be able to connect the dots. For instance, that NK is on Murdoch's priority list and thats how she gets so much coverage. Or that part of that "most powerful" list that Keith was on had to do with internet hits, which is probably why he has added the youtube clips to his fansite. And how many shows did he do this past weekend? Did we see any news or reviews? Well, if he can't get noticed for his work and NK has no work at the moment, they just flood the media with the personal stuff. This marriage is as much of a career as his music or her films. They use it for publicity in the same way.

rememberwhen said...

We will never see pictures of them leaving the farm, her house, or a hotel together. They are not together. They arrive to the place where the pr pictures will be taken separately. Only one that come with Keith is his lawyer. To make sure Nicole pays him the going rate for pr pictures. Also when they go out they don't talk at all. That is why they are always going to places they don't have to talk to each other like the movies.

The picture I want to see is a picture of Nicole, her sister, and Rose together. But I don't think we will ever see that one.

Tara said...

This is how it all started gang.
In July of 2005 it was announced Keith Urban had a movie contract. One week later the first picture of the happy couple show up in People and the aussie People. Two weeks later Keith gets a profile in People when a month earlier he wasn't mentioned in their Live 8 coverage.

In November of 2005 Keith is set for a big CMA- he stunns everyone by winning entertainer of the year
boom 10 frickin hours later the pictures of the couple walking around Boston show up on People. com- boom the sideshow is now underway and it rolled over what career Keith had at the time.

so yep this recent stuff is more of the same why
Because someones former husband had a new film out?
Rumblings that the happy couple isn't happy?
Everything is done and said and pictured for a reason- thats the lesson.

Lisa said...

On June 20...wasn't she supposed to be flying into LAX from Australia, photographed being greeted by her adoring husband (who by the way she did not hand the baby over to even though he had not seen her for a week). She then reportedly had lunch with her "adoring" children. You know the ones who can't stand her. BUT wait then had an intimate dinner in TN that night!!!! REALLY, REALLY.....someone needs a fact checker

smorgas91 said...

Making sure my comment of 6/30, 1:41am is not totally off-the-wall, it was supposed to follow UM comments of 10:54pm & 10:56pm.

rememberwhen said: "...We will never see pictures of them leaving the farm, her house, or a hotel together. They are not together."
This is a very definitive statement, do you know for sure that they are NOT together? This may explain why she is NEVER pictured showing affection to him first, it's always him reaching for her (that's gotta be no fun....) How desperate does a man need to be for fame (or the lifestyle it brings) to quietly be subjected to (this & other variations of) bs from a has-been celebrity like her?

With their credibility lost, nothing they do together or otherwise, is taken in the meaning intended, everything is pretty much contrived, self-serving, insincere, stupid or pure crap. I think their days as A-/B list celebrities are pretty much numbered (yep a bunch of generalities, but losing interest in both clowns fast....)

hoosierlady said...

smorgas91 said...yep a bunch of generalities, but losing interest in both clowns fast....)



no, no, don't go. . .

you have to stay for a movie opening, they are so much fun, or at least through some awards season, long enough to get in on some truly good stuff,

I make popcorn. . . .

123xyz said...

Lisa there are these new things called airplanes, you may have looked up into the sky and seen a few of them. They get a large amount of people from point A to point B really fast. It's really amazing. Anyway, from OZ to LA you get in, in the morning (9am-10am). I have no way of knowing if she had lunch with the Cruise kids (and she probably didn't) but for arguments sake, she could have had a very early lunch with them. Then flown the 3:30 hrs to Nashville to have a late dinner date there. It's very doable. Personally, I doubt she had lunch with the older kids. I think Keith flew from Chicago to meet her. They got their photo op and turned right around and got on a plane to Nashville that same morning. JMO.

TL, Kidman was at his show in Verona, NY on the 3rd June, 2005. People I know saw her there and told me she was there. I was at the show but I didn't see her myself. Because Naomi was at Live 8there was also talk that she was there too. I don't know if she was (I was there at that show too)but I didn't see her. She was for sure in NY in June 2005. So it started before July of 2005. In August 2005he also talked about her on stage in Wallingford, CT. He didn't mention her by name but he said he was having this conversation with this friend of his who was divorced and how "she" had been in a high profile marriage. He said more I don't remember now. Something about not going to bed angry or something. He used that as his into to one of his songs. Everyone knew it was Kidman he was talking about. So it started before July 2005 and I think they did spend time with each other that people didn't know about.

Tara said...

oh markie - there were all these sightings of them all over the place
even in Conn and I know for a fact that Keith was in Nashville but thats how the myths got started..
The pictures on the bike were taken in June but not released until late july- do you really want to go there
because I don't.
They create the drama they always do always have. Most of the entire relationship is built on myth. I am glad everyone knew because back then no one knew anything. And the first spotting of her at a concert was in Buffalo - thats the first one that was talked about and that was in November of 05.
Live 8 had a lot of media where ar the picture of Kidman? That's right she wasn't there perhaps she was filming a movie called Fur at the time.

For those of you who have never had to read the bullshit this is how it starts this is why they are so hell bent on bringing up all this stuff so that these myths can flow. Five very long years of this shit and why?

A440 said...

For clarity's sake, I can quote the stuff from Wallingford 'cause I have the recording. Nowhere does Keith say that his friend is divorced from a high profile marriage. He says simply it's a friend and she counsels that people need not thrash out marital problems by staying up all night and arguing. She says that you can just let it go for the time being and pick it up later. Then he launches into "Turn Out The Lights."

If you want a verbatim quote, I can do that later.

hoosierlady said...

Tara said...

OK, ignore it, and eventually they have to stop, or just speak to themselves.

A440 said...

And, BTW, they had that "late dinner date" on Thursday, the 24th. Tweets of them at Flyte were noted that evening.

123xyz said...

A440 if you go back and read what I said, I said I didn't remember exactly what was said. It was 5 years ago. But I still maintain that myself and the people that I spoke with afterwards believed it was Kidman he was talking about.
I also wasn't the one who said they had dinner on the night of her Birthday in Nashville. I just said it was possible to be in both LA and Nashville on the same day. Someone else brought that up and and said it couldn't happen.

TL, I didn't say Kidman was at Live 8, I said there was talk she was there. Because Naomi was there. When people saw the "N" drawn on his hand during his performance people wondered what that was about. Yes, it was an "N" I saw it feet high in person on the Jumbotron and immediately thought of her because I already knew she was in NY at his show the month before.
In retrospect, we all know NOW that she wasn't at Live 8. So I guess the "N" was just a shout out to her. We all know Keith loves his subliminal messages.

She WAS in NY. in June 2005. I was told by more then one person very close to Keith, that she was there (in upstate NY) and then a friend of mine saw her there. As well as a person from the venue that I got to talking to who also told me, not for any other reason except he couldn't believe he saw her there. No reason to make up that story, especially back then (before the photo came out). Who knows maybe the photo that was released in July but taken in June (which I believe we were told at the time was taken in upstate NY) was taken while she was there seeing that show??? Makes sense don't you think? No reason for them both to go to upstate NY twice in June.

The sightings of her in CT, were around the same time of his shows in CT/NYC in August 2005. I have no idea if she was actually in CT with him (nor do I care. It was 5 yrs ago and whether or not she was there changes nothing at this point) but Keith did mention a friend who was married and said it was a "she". I was at that show too. Since as you brought up that the first photo of Kidman and Keith came out in July, the CT. shows were in August, people did know that they had a connection with each other at that point (It was fresh in their minds as the photo had just came out). a lot put two and two together and figured it was her he was talking about.

Nothing that I posted earlier or now is bullshit. I might not have audio tape, so I have to go with my memory. Again, it was 5 years ago. Sorry, if what I saw, or heard doesn't fit in with the story you've decided is how/when they began their relationship.

BTW, Keith didn't play in Buffalo, NY. in November of 2005. Talk about Myths flowing. I'm not Hell bent on anything other then the truth. Whether that truth makes KUNK look good or bad matters not to me. I'm just real tired of the "Myths" on both sides.

From what I knew at the time (posting about shows I was going to on the boards and no one else saying me too) I was the only skeptic at the show in Verona, NY. Just because I didn't come back and report every little thing to the skeptic boards (or to you) doesn't mean things didn't happen. There were lots of things I heard and saw that I didn't share. So just because they weren't talked about at the time, means nothing other then I can keep a secret and maybe that's why things were said to me and in front of me. Because what was said didn't later show up on the internet.

hoosierlady said...

Let me off the chain,

I beg you,

Let me have the floor and don't hold me back.

I want my Urban Myths back the way it was, this isn't fun. I want my happy little fun world back, and this is just a huge bubble buster.

PLEASE LET ME HAVE HER

I won't ask for anything for Christmas, my birthday, or Valentine's day for 2 years.

I'll stop mumbling the f word while driving,

I need my Urban Myths at the end of a long day.

Please?

Thanks, hoosierlady, always do enjoy reading you dry prickly (& lots of fun) blogs, that's for sure...
Hoosierlady said: "...at least through some awards season, long enough to get in on some truly good stuff...."
You're not kidding. It's KU's show and she rains on his parade like no tomorrow...never fails, fully donned up like a clown, with enough faux pas including enhanced Duck Lips, inflated boobies, white powder exposed, dress too garish etc. to does stuff to herself too soon before any one of these, causing in one her face (from too much botox) like a bat, lips too augumented causing people to call her a freak (CMA last year), well leave it to this sloppy, low IQ, yep, there will always be good stuff for laughs!

Laura said...

Sorry if I was being rude earlier..

And sorry if I am being rude now.. But I think you guys are freakier than Nicole is.. and I don't even like her!

You guys spend way too much time investigating and making up crazy theories on this couple. Seriously. Go to the club or something.

And by the way, the reason I deleted my other two comments was because it was the same comment as before just came up twice for some reason.

mikki said...

Laura,
You are rude. Who are you to tell people what to do with their time? Why don't YOU go to a club or something.

smorgas91 said...

Hoosierlady said: "...I want my Urban Myths back the way it was, this isn't fun."
No kidding. Loads and loads of stuff from 2005 in such explicit detail and disagreements about issues that had no beginning, referencing blogger names that aren't here, just lengthy gripes and no wit to speak of (who needs these), blogs with no merit or any entertainment value, etc. (yeah, so what) It appears to me that this site has a different (yeah, note, this is an intentional neutral choice of word)flavor now........

Tara said...

I agree about killing the mood. So I will agree to disagree with all the
"experts".

Love that his concert tour last week turned into a PR campaign about their marriage- more sightings all over Colorado. Well that way she can say that she was on his tour. Love also they had to drag a bodyguard with them.

mikki said...

She has to fall back on the marriage for PR right now. What else has she got? Theres no more awards shows and Trespass doesn't start filming until August. Lets see if she makes that trip to Haiti at the end of the month.

notachance said...

At least Laura apologizes for being rude.... just sayin'.

smorgas91 said...

(going bk to root issue) is it me, but "all" her kissing shots cause me to think she has a bad breath. Her thread pictures here is no exception...maybe because she appears like deliberately moving away from it, choosing to play pure desirable, instinctively shy(nah!) away, hell, I don't know but kissing her seems yucky...in movies and in some shots you could tell she situates her lips or aligns them for kissing or something what a dentured geriatric would do with his/her lips,never understood that...esp about not going into emotions, passions...her baby kissing shots make me want to wipe the areas fast...yuk, yuk, just yuk (okay, my two cents out....)

hoosierlady said...

The whole teeth thing has me on the wide awake.

Can you imagine seeing that coming toward you?
