ONE WEEK LATER:

Dateline: September 20, 2010; Nashville, Tennessee

And he proceeds to thank three people... Nicole Mary (his wife); Sunny Rose (his daughter); and Ansel Davis (his attorney).
 
Jim Reeves Acceptance speech
 
He shows up for her important PR. She's a no show for his. Yet he continues the litany of praise. How will Broadway mesh with the supposed upcoming tour to promote "Get Closer"? Stay tuned.

Ha! Orb is wearing the same black coat! HOW gauche! Well, as to the orb's expected 2011 tour and mutts "attendance" to any of it...it is a pretense that is SOLELY for PR BS. As mutt only attends a few token appearances...for the cameras...and other "supposed" attendance to any of his gigs are announced by orb on stage...where the "non sighting" of mutt is explained away as just her "shyness." Being as she has already condemned his career to indifference from a huge amount of former fansies...whether she is at any MORE or the regular token appearances doesnt make too much of a difference. NOw again, as to whether they are "truly" happy and content to be together...well good for them...but what is true, this pr marriage has been a total loser for their careers. Their "joint" PR photo ops...appearances and charity exploiting endeavers has been nothing but hype.

A440 said...

I was wondering that myself, why she didn't show. Could she have been out of town filming that day? Is her work on Trespass finished?

She's hardly one to avoid a spotlight, even when it rightfully belongs to Keith...

blue sky said...

Which songs gave him the notoriety to receive this award? I am sure it isn't the ones inspired by his wife! What does his attorney have to do with it? Oh yea, he signed this whole deal. What about your fans Keith - remember your fans?

blue sky said...

If she is still filming, wasn't it in the south somewhere? She couldn't have jumped on her private jet, which would be a very short ride to Nashville, and then flew back again after the program? Don't need to worry about Sunday Rose - she's with the nanny anyway.

Tara said...

Its a nice award. I don't know if its really for his international touring or that he is international.

It is pissy that that woman can't even show up to support him. Yes its not an Oscar, Tony, Grammy but it is something in his field of work. But it was pointed out and I am going to point out again that when the cameras aren't there she isn't and maybe that is the way the contract reads. The CMA fest was shot for a television program. For some artists they tape a song once or twice. In Keith's case, they taped I'm In twice one he sang the song the other he put the insipid baby gurl reference in. Guess which one aired? Its all done for show and its stupid. After the festival ended there was another show that Marty Stuart hosted and Keith performed Kidman couldn't be bothered to show for that because it wasn't going to be important to push the myth of their image there.
He bends over backwards to look stupid kneeling at her alter and yet she can't take an evening off and support her husband. She found time to film commercials during shoots in the past. The infamous Sean Penn interview in Rolling Stone where he complained about actors and celebrities he was talking about Kidman. Yet she can't be bothered to support this man who has really ruined his public persona (pussy whipped) by catering to her.
He did however, look happier at the Nashville event than he ever does at her events.

Back to this event why not thank the fans because he won't unless he needs to. But no mention for his manager Boreman or Capitol Nashville. Which is quite telling and yes the ultimate puppet master may not be Nicole Kidman it just may be Ansel Davis.

LynZ said...

FYI, the person above is wrong. I was at the CMA fest and Keith didn't film twice. In fact, nobody did. It wasn't filmed as a tv show. It was just the festival performances and the tv show was from those.

I'd like to know how you know Sean Penn was talking about Nicole Kidman in the Rolling Stone article. I think you're just saying that to make her look bad. I like Keith and Nicole together. They both seem like nice people.

LindaMarie said...

His attorney? What a laugh. I guess he no longer needs to thank the fans or even his parents for that matter. The fans made him international. His wife and attorney made him a pussy-whipped tabloid star.

It is very telling that she can't be there with him at his events. If she was still filming in LA she could have been there if she cared to be. He has to fly halfway around the world to spend three hours with her, go back out on tour and repeat the whole stupid schedule. Why couldn't she be there for him? The more I see this kind of crap, the more I don't believe their lies. Although he does seem to be the happiest when she is not yanking on his hand.

"FYI, the person above is wrong. I was at the CMA fest and Keith didn't film twice."

"I'd like to know how you know Sean Penn was talking about Nicole Kidman in the Rolling Stone article. I think you're just saying that to make her look bad."

Well, here is the exact quote,

“People are spending too much time modeling for some f@#king clothing company instead of acting, and I resent that,” Penn told Binelli. “It’s like ‘I’m sorry— are you going to do the Chanel ad today? I thought you were in the middle of shooting a fucking movie.’

Penn was in a film with mutt which came out in April 2005, which means they probably filmed in the previous year, 2004...and in late 2004...in Dec. 2004...mutt's chanel commercial was released. So unless you can point out ANOTHER actress Penn has worked with...that HAS shilled for Chanel... because as you can read, Penn specifically says Chanel...then your comments HERE would be far more believable!

blue sky said...

Just keep in mind what is happening with Ashton & Demi in their "perfect marriage" world right now. There are reasons why couples proclaim to have the "perfect marriage" when it is actually a "don't ask, don't tell marriage" for some.

I don't for a second believe KUNK has a perfect marriage. It is obvious that Keith is the one who "digs deep" every day to keep his wife happy, and that's why you see a stress-free face on him at his events when she isn't around.

So you have to ask yourself, do you want her there to show support in his career or do you want him to enjoy himself instead of focusing on keeping her happy at his functions? There is also the factor that the attention is pulled from him towards her. Wasn't it Keith that had Sunday Rose in the studio and recorded some songs, but yet it is Nicole Kidman's daughter that is a recording artist.

Tara said...
"Its a nice award. I don't know if its really for his international touring or that he is international."

Precisely Tara, most likely because he's an Aussie, by way of N-zeal...transplanted to Nashville. As I pointed out a few threads ago, orb's recent "international conquest of the world" was simply by way of OZ and Canada. It was a hyperventilating fansie who was very helpful in pointing out that orb HAD toured Europe...opening for bryan adams...on "ADAMS tour of Europe...back in 2005! So when has orb HIMSELF been back to Europe in the 5 years since? Yes, an absolutely "JUSTIFIABLE" reason to give orb an "International" award. Clearly, this is just a very "unjustified" award in the name of plugging his new single...and the upcoming album.

Tara said...

I stand by what I said.

and Ansel Davis is the key master.

LindaMarie said...

Tara:

I agree. Ansel Davis is the key puppetmaster. Without him, these two never would have "connected". After all Urban had her telephone number for at least six months before someone came up with the "Power Aussie Couple" Plan. He was with someone else during that time span, and quite happily I may add however for the love of fame, money and recognition is what put these two together, not love for each other. And you have to remember, Kidman was working with a timetable.

A440 said...

Refresh my memory, which can be wonky at times. Didn't Keith go to tour Europe and end up cancelling some gigs due to throat problems? Since he was later seen partying with Her Ladyship that same day, some felt the cancellation was BS. Others felt that Nic had pulled his leash tight because there were also rumors flying that he was indulging in "massage therapy" during the tour.

And why does Germany ring a bell in terms of these cancellations? Somebody help me out here...

mikki said...

LindaMarie, have you checked Keith's bio's or wikipedia lately? The story has been changed. Now it seems that Keith and Nicole were emailing each other as Hank & Evie during that six month period before they started dating. Guess NK didn't want it out there that Keith wasn't interested in her for six months after they met. Doesn't fit with the "fairytale".

blue sky said...

I'll help you out A440. His own crew members didn't even know he had throat problems in Europe, but they knew about some misbehaving going on there! Does that help spell out BS for you?

LindaMarie said...

A440

Your memory serves you well. As a matter of fact, one of those European countries is quite angry at him for not rescheduling those cancelled dates. And it is not the first time he used his "throat" to get out of something, especially when it comes to "massage therapy".

A440 said...

mikki, FWIW, I don't think they sat on those phone numbers for six months.

They were first noted together for that July motorcycle ride. But they were also photographed together backstage at Tommy Emmanuel's Nashville performance during the second week of June. I cannot imagine that being a first or even a second date, so I suspect they started dating before that.

blue sky and LindaMarie, thanks! I just couldn't remember the details of when he cancelled those gigs due to throat problems that apparently traced back to his groin.

mikki said...

A440, as LindaMarie and many other sources have said, Keith had a girlfriend in 05' who he continued to date until October when he agreed to this arrangement with NK.

I don't know the identity of Evie but I've heard from several sources that she is not NK.

So I'm in agreement with LindaMarie, they didn't have any contact until the "puppetmaster" struck a deal.

Well, just a point of contention, A440...but it seems you may be mistaking this photo...

Tommy Emmanuel in Concert - July 11, 2006

...for that "June" date you are relaying...this photo is from 2006, a year later.... of mutt and jeff "dating" earlier than the usual convention that they hooked up 6 months later. They met in Jan of 2005....and were then first noted hooking up in july of 05 in People mag...out for that motorcyle ride. And according to wiki...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Emmanuel

"Tommy performs at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society (CAAS) in July each year in Nashville."

Now perhaps mutt and jeff were ALSO together and photographed at emmanuel's performance in july of'05...but I cant find that photo.

maclen said...

...fullfetchingly...

But, what is truly far more determental to the orb's career, now that it is in decline...is this recent comment over at monkeyland...basically echoing MY recent comments here about orb's seemingly "unwise" PR practice regarding his videos...in this "Urbanalysis" thread...

http://www.keithurban.net/forum/index.php?topic=40815.300


Re: Urbanalysis for Put You In A Song on the Billboard Chart

BillBoard comments...

"At last, the video topic gives me a chance to show off. I know more than Jon does, for once, because I do inhabit another dimenson/universe. And in my dimension, a video helps a new artist, or someone making a comeback, or someone crossing over from another genre -- but not a superstar, unless the song is for some reason or other especially weak.
I don't see how KU qualifies. His songs climb very quickly into the top 10 so they don't need an introduction. They are "self-introducing." His arrangements, his solos, his interpretation of lyrics tend to be noticeable. (To say the least.) What can a video do for him?
The problem he's had, as we all know, is finishing a song -- getting it the last 3 million in audience it needs to reach the top. And maybe that's a Capitol problem, or maybe it's a some-stations-don't-think-Urban's-country-enough problem, or maybe it's some problem nobody has ever identified. But I just can't see how a video is going to generate an extra boost exactly when needed, in chart week 14 or 17 or whenever he's right on the brink."

So, where to begin...well firstly, this commenters opinion that "videos" are ONLY important to newbies, hasbeens...or muscians with "weak" music is dubious! Yes, I hear the alarm! Well, then clearly, by this commenters definition...orb's new single IS WEAK! Otherwise, why would orb be releaseing a video so soon!? But seriously, this commenters thoughts ARE exactly what I've been saying about the monkeysite. They are SOOOO obsessed with his singles doing well on the charts...ie: based on call ins...and they've completely neglected the orb's VERY WEAK cd sales! IT IS more important to the monkeys that his singles get to #1...than it is that the orb gets to that coveted "platinum" or even far more coveted "multi-platinum" status, which is in SALES oF MILLIONS of cds...and not simply "requests" for his songs! Now truly, I'm waiting to see if that "reported" story that orb is finished at capnash is true...for I know, it will come as CRUSHING news to these monkeys! They consider orb's cd Declining sales as a HUGE hit...because THEY got it 2 #1's, 2 at #2 and one to #3 on the country charts! Meanwhile it has sold only 890k cds...well over 100k cds SHORT of even platinum...and at this point, it probably wont make it to platinum! Although personally, I consider it a huge mistake for the orb to concetrate on the radio spins and chart performance...and get his records #1 status...orb's neglect of the videos is a miscalculation that he has no real control over. I believe his "shallow" image hyped to the hilt by his fansie's mentality...and his even more bubble "gum-my" music is the real blame for his decline.

blue sky said...

After further viewing of the acceptance speech, I find it incredible that after Keith's thanks his "Holy Trinity" he mentions he has so many people to thank and apologizes in advance for speaking for so long. That's okay Keith, this isn't a televised program. Take as long as you want, and people won't mind as long as you have something charming and interesting to say. Perhaps thank those that initially helped you come to the US, like your parents, but he does not.

You see, Keith went on international tours long before Nic came into the picture. All those people he should have thanked were pre-Kidman, therefore they are now irrelevant to him.

LindaMarie said...

Mikki:

You are right - Kidman is not Evie and never was - and he is not Hank, never was.

Most photos were taken of them "dating" for PR purposes. He was still with his girlfriend until that deal in October 2005 was struck and she gave him the boot. Keith considered Kidman a friend, but Kidman had more in mind and her timetable was clicking away due to Cruise's couch jumping so it was time to jump start their fairytale. Keith was in long time relationships before even considering walking down the aisle. After three months of "intensive dating" they get engaged. Not buying it, that is not Keith's style. It was what was struck up between Kidman's people and the puppermaster. The rest is phony history.

A440 said...

Well, sorry, maclen, looks like I dropped the ball on that photo date. My bad! (Told you my memory was dodgy sometimes...)

FWIW, what part did Bob play in all this? I'd read that he was in on the negotiations for the contract/pre-nup and that Keith married Kidman, in part, to impress/satisfy his father.

No doubt her money and connections impressed Keith, and still do, but my impression is that Bob was highly involved in Keith's decision.

LindaMarie said...

A440

Money. He told Keith, don't marry for money, but don't don't marry for money. They all speak in riddles. I always felt there was something going on between Keith and his father. Can't put my finger on it but Bob was tough on Keith. I think Keith felt he wouldn't amount to much so to have the trophy wife along with his other worldly possessions would impress his father big time. However, I don't think that mission was accomplished.

mikki said...

A440, don't know where you read that. But as the story goes, Keith's parents were informed about the contract between Keith and Nicole after the fact. They were told at that first family gathering in Nashville. According to the story, Bob wanted no part of the PR circus and left early.

The prenup was said to have been signed in LA a week before the couple left for OZ to be married. Bob was not there.

Two different documents.

Some say Keith's parents were against the whole thing and thats the reason they are not a part of the "fairytale".

LindaMarie said...

mikki:

That is how I understood it to be also. There is a reason why we don't see Keith's family much. Keith's marriage is a thorn to them, along with the fact that they don't see their "granddaughter" too often. What a web!

maclen said...

A440 said...
"Well, sorry, maclen, looks like I dropped the ball on that photo date. My bad! (Told you my memory was dodgy sometimes...)"

Well I know what you mean, A440...if it wasnt for wikipedia and the gettyimages photo search I couldnt have recalled that either! In fact after I posted that correction, I even wondered if it WAS '05 or '06 when they first met. What I recall on the whole "first reported" sighting which again was that blurb in People magazine of them out riding motorcyles in july of '05 was that it was VERY "coincidental" and "timing" suspect that it came relatively immediately after the whole "tomkat" episode. Recall, ex-cruise and katie holmes first hooked up in April '05...in june of '05 ex-cruise announced he had proposed to holmes...then only a month later in july of '05 mutt and jeff are first reported sighted together by People mag. It is this suspect timing that BOTH ex-cruise and mutt would meet their eventual spouses within only a few months of each other...basically points to mutt simply trying to "keep up with the jones'"...or in this case..keep up with the ex-cruise's. And also added to that "keeping up" with the cruises' it was not at all surprising...when tomkat announced that they were expecting a baby...mutt and jeff would at some point...have their own baby. Further indications that it was simply a PR marriage for mutt is what mikki mentions earlier in this tread...the "revisionism" of the already stated history...for instance, early on mutts story on the first meeting and their eventual hooking up...was that "she gave him her phone number but he never called! And the later "romanticized version" that it was "love at first sight".

maclen said...

Well, here is a pretty POSITIVE...(NOT)...experience for a monkey to take note of...

http://www.keithurban.net/forum/index.php?topic=40700.540

HookedOnKurban posted...

"Well it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted...I was too upset about not being able to get the pre-sale tickets, being a member and all...so I had to cave in and buy 2 tickets from a broker...cost me $300...and as much as I hated doing this...I did not want to miss out on this event...then today I find out there are still tickets for sale through Ticketmaster and you can even call the box office...imagine that.

HA! Yeah..."HOOKED"...like a flopping bass on the line! Well, orb WAS able to gouge this weak willed monkey out of a no doubt hard earned 300 bucks! Now, imagine the countless OTHER monkeys who were also unable to get tickets by virtue of being monkey members who may NOT be posting ever again at the fansie site...or the countless people who paid for a new membership at the fansie site simply to get tickets to the show...only to not be fortunate enough to get any, or end up with seats sooo far away from the stage they may as well be in the next county! I doubt if many who had that problem...and based on the numbers revealed in that investigative article I posted...I'd say it was "substantial" enough to leave a recognizable bad taste to any potential permanent members or fansie. Oh sure, orb may have gotten the money off of new memberships with promises of guaranteed tickets to the show...that clearly was not the case based on the example of "hookedonkurban"...and the money gouged by the monkey-scalpers "reselling tickets"...unabashedly on the fansie site with no shame whatsoever....as I mentioned, orb may get the money now...but he clearly loses more in the more important results of being at the bottom of cd sales due to a more and more "unsatisfied and unfaithful" fanbase. His decision to "Donate all money collected by new memberships to his site to the HALL" this year clearly indicates this is a very noticable sore point that needed to be addressed. And the fact that his videos at his youtube channel are the LEAST viewed amoung the current elite country acts also is an indication that he isnt cultivating a very "faithful" fanbase! So, the above mentioned monkey says he/she "heard" that tickets are NOW available at ticketmaster...and "you can even call the box office"...well, what I would say to that is...if there are STILL tickets left...with just a week to go...and if it's the case that the show is apparently NOT sold out yet...I'd say it doesnt bode well this year, as it apparently DID last year...for the "BENEFIT for orb!" This year orb lost alot of the elite names for the show...swifty, paisley et al... which I clearly blame on orb's complete shameless shilling and opportunism of self promotion and the ticket fansie gouging scam... now it seems the tickets to this years show are NOT going like hotcakes!

Tara said...

Linda Marie- you know of what you speak!

I think Keith is the man his father always wanted to be. I also have to give Bob some appreciation because he doesn't want to be part of the hoopla that is his sons personal life. He left that one Christmas and I respect him for that. We rarely see him in a photo op. They do still visit- they were at all for the hall last year sitting in the audience. They were also at his show in Buffalo a year ago. They stay out of the spotlight.

I know its early but Keith is not listed as a performer for the CMAs in November. Also noticed he didn't sing the new single last night.
And when will he be invited to join the Opry?

PR PR PR thats what this marriage is all about. Remember he was recording the Pain CD when she announced they were engaged and he went missing for a few days. This came on the heels of that infamous UN Dinner.

A440 said...

That's always confused me. Why was he shocked that she'd announced their engagement? She'd been walking around with that piece of ice on her ring finger for seven months. The March wedding date had had to be postponed...and he knew it. He caused it.

Why the panic attack?

LindaMarie said...

Tara

I remember that announcement. The engagement he knew nothing about. Sources say he freaked at that one and went riding in the hills for a few days. However the promise of fame and fortune and conquering Australia must have lured him in. And who could forget how horrible and depressed looking he was a mere three months after their fairytale wedding? It was just a matter of time before I knew he was headed in big trouble. You could see it in his eyes. My take on that situation. He wanted out of the marriage. You know him, do something so bad and so wrong that the woman would leave, but she knew his game very well, she said no and he spiraled. October is a significant time for this "marriage". Do you think becoming engaged for his birthday, conceiving around his birthday and buying him big enormous presents for his birthday is all for love?

LindaMarie said...

A440

She always had that ring. He didn't give it to her. He never thought they would actually get married for real. The March date was postponed because he didn't want to get married right away (he was figuring he would do something bad and she would leave - you know his normal routine). He was caught red handed with other women the January before. He thought it was over and had actually asked for space. She had other plans. She has something hanging over his head and the contract was too good to be true. He used that clause about using drugs and/or drink to get out of his marriage when he drank himself into a stupor that October (see that October thing again). She had other plans. And none of it had to do with her love for him.

mikki said...

A440 and LindaMarie, There was a source at the time who said that the night of the UN dinner Keith told NK that it was over, that he wanted out. He returned to Nashville that night. The next day she went public with the announcement that they were engaged. He was stunned because he thought he ended it.

Another source said that it was Tom who nixed the March wedding refusing to let NK have the kids so close to Katie's due date. NK was livid but rescheduled the wedding.

And yet another source has said that Keith put up all his assets (music catalogue, home, etc) when he signed that contract and that is what she had hanging over his head.

And finally, some say that the original contact was only one year ending in 06' (marriage included). They say it was NK who exposed him in the media for his drinking and drugs to break the contract before it expired. Then she had control of his possessions and he would do whatever she wanted to gain them back. Which to many explains why he did the 180 after rehab.

LindaMarie said...

Mikki:

Bingo!

So what is left for him to do to get out of this charade? Or does he really want to now....

A440 said...

Wait a minute...wasn't March when he partied with The Porn Queen? I thought that's what scuttled the original wedding date.


"She has something hanging over his head and the contract was too good to be true." This I'm not following. The contract sounds all one-sided on Nic's behalf.

I'm having a hard time thinking that Ansel and Gary allowed the contract to be agreed upon. Unless she's given him access to all her finances and people, she holds all the cards. The contract held out the *possibility* of increased fame/fortune/conquering Oz. It was *definite* that she had his financial cojones in a sling. It's an unfair contract.

Keith is a cautious man when it comes to money. I cannot see why he would agree to definitely give up his wealth for the chance, the possibility, of increased exposure.

Since it obviously hasn't worked. His standing in Australia has increased only marginally.

Tara said...

Remember Keith Urban never leaves a woman.

Do I think Kidman was behind the Amanda articles? They first ran in In Touch- but they weren't going anywhere so poof merry Christmas Mr Urban in the Daily Mail we get to read about your bedroom habits. Guess who owns the Daily Mail?

Do you think Keith remembers anything about his wedding day? I kinda doubt it.

There are rumors that she ordered her wedding dress in August of 2005 and purchased her rock in late September. Do you think Keith urban shelled out $150.000 for a ring?

October is significant good catch on that.

My own opinion- Kidman was not going to leave. She would look too stupid considering everyone knew about Keith- I think she showed him what power she had by those articles and she could ruin him and I think they made another deal and this one included a child and a time line.

and don't forget the puppet master in all of this.

mikki said...

A440, the contract wasn't one sided. Sources say that in addition to international fame and fortune, crossing over to rock music, winning over Australia, at the end of one year he was to receive a large sum on money (rumored to be $30 million), and a Sydney penthouse - which NK purchased six days before the wedding. Some also say a jet plane was part of the deal as well. NK is said to be full of promises that she never keeps so who knows what else she offered to sweeten the deal. But it was said that she was determined that Keith wouldn't get away the way Lenny Kravitz did. Which is why a binding contract was so necessary.

The original wedding date was March 11, 2006. His encounter with the porn stars occurred towards the end of March.

Tara, NK's dress designer said she ordered her wedding dress in November 05'. Had to get that contract signed in October first??

Many believe that the ring is the same one she flashed when she was with Lenny Kravitz.

LindaMarie, don't know if she still has control over him or if he likes things this way now. But my guess is, this won't be over until SHE decides its over.

Laura said...

"sources say" "according to the story"

OK who are these 'sources'? Who is telling you guys this? Please I'd like to know where it came from so I don't have to think you all made this crap up!

Seriously. Cause I'm a huge Keith fan and I never heard about any of this (PR, his dad walking out, him ending it & nic announcing engagement after, buying the ring herself?!) until now.

So please for the love of God tell me where you read this? Cause it sounds like a bunch of bull to me.

mikki said...

Laura, no one is asking you to believe anything. Believe what you want.

There has been a lot of information out there from the beginning. If you were only on his/her fan site, you must have missed it.

LindaMarie said...

Laura - no bull. There is information out there and I have friends in high places. I am not at liberty to reveal my sources...not yet. Trust me this is not a marriage made in heaven. There were alot of reasons why she tracked him down like a dog and none of them have to do with being oh so in love and wanting a child of her own. She made him a boat load of promises, some she kept, some she sideswiped. She has the power and it was all her doing by making his private life a public living hell.

Laura said...

OK so you still haven't answered my question as to who & what sites reported these stories. Doesn't suprise me, though. You all have nothing to back up your claims!

LindaMarie said...

I have something. Just can't say what. It is not the time. You'll see. Timing is everything.

mikki said...

LindaMarie, you don't have to convince anyone of anything. And your certainly not obligated to reveal your sources. The information is out there. And we're all free to believe whatever we want.

blue sky said...

Wasn't there a blog written by someone who attended the UN dinner? They made general comments and weren't there as a fan or anything of Kidman's - just in attendance and made general observations. Didn't they say something like Keith spent most of the night alone while Kidman worked the room? The only interaction between the couple that took place was when everyone took their places at the tables. Keith appeared to be drinking lots of wine that night, and Kidman moved his glass of wine away from him at the table.

LindaMarie said...

mikki:

Thank you. Like I said, timing is everything.

blue sky:

You are absolutely right. Keith was only there as her paid escort. He was bored beyond tears and kept drinking the night away. Of course she wasn't amuse. She may have moved the glass from the table but he was drinking everywhere else. I would too if I had to spend the evening with the likes of her.

Tara said...

go to Lainey's past columns to May 06 and you can read about the UN Dinner.

we used to call the whole relationship with Kidman the sideshow
not its the only show
