Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Nicole‘s husband, country singer Keith Urban attended the 2012 Country Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Keith looked beautiful tonight…And he was nominated for “Male Vocalist”…

Jennifer L. @ 11/02/2012 at 4:19 am

So she chooses a horse race over supporting her husband on an important night for him. He is always there for her. Play fair Nicole.

@Jennifer L.:

Don’t be an ignorant a$$. It is a professional commitment for her for one of her endorsements and since things like this don’t suddenly happen overnight, she made the commitment long before Keith was nominated for the CMA award. She has also been by his side for everything.

1urbanfan27 @ 11/02/2012 at 5:26 am

@dani: Right…

…it’s all about her. Hmmmmm…where are the children? Hopefully with Keith in Nashville.

@Jennifer L.: She was there for him and chose to stay with him when he went to rehab. That in itself says it all. She always supports him. She had this professional commitment in Australia before the CMA awards nominations were announced. If anything, it’s Keith who chose to go to the CMA awards instead of going to Australia with his wife, not the other around. But of course, let’s blame the evil Nicole Kidman. Pfff…

Keith is so beautiful, and dreamy and sexy as hell! Lucky Nicole!!!

What’s funny is that if Nicole had been to the CMA awards, the psychos would be complaining about her always being there trying to steal Keith’s thunder…

Keith & Nicole both say they work together and support one another. She has a job and so does he and sometimes have to go their separate ways as all families do! Nicole and Keith are a special couple. Bless them. They are both so gorgeous and talented.

Nicole looks so curvy. She has gained a few pounds and she looks fantastic. Keith looks great, but he has too much lipstick in the pictures. It’s his makeup artist’s fault, not his. I guess it’s time to hire a new person to do his make up for these kind of events.

@blink:

I’m sure the kids are well taken care of. I doubt seriously that either Keith or Nicole left them to fend for themselves. They may very well already be on the plane. They and Keith have been with her for the filming of Grace. Why don’t you get your but-t over to the Tom Cruise threads–Tom hasn’t seen Suri for three months. While we all get he has to work, he is seen partying, accepting awards etc on the weekends when he could hop in his private jet and fly over to see Suri for a day or two. I’d say this is far more inexcusable for a man who has bragged in the past that his kids (in context Bella and Connor) came first. And especially a guy who made the mother of his children a suppressive to them according to not one but at least three top ex-cult members. But you just go ahead and pick on Nicole and make her the bad guy if it makes you feel better.

Orwell, being a fan of both Nicole and Keith, I normally agree with you, but this time, I can’t agree with Keith missing the CMA’s. Keith’s presence at these events in Nashville is expected. The entertainment business knows he’s a draw, and Keith is humble to a fault in loyalty to Nashville. I believe he has quite a few appearances coming up where she’lll be expected to attend, so this may have been a compromise.

Love the outfit ( great fall color) and hair. She’s actually putting on some weight! Not crazy about Keith’s look. He looks best in jeans.

Well taken care of? Im sure. But by someone else. Some may think thats ok, i do not. I have a feeling they spend much time with caregivers and i think thats a shame. When do you have enough money? Ever? Guess not.

Call me old fashioned but maybe a man that makes as much as Urban should have a wife who devotes her time to raising their children. Does the world really need more Nicole films? No. Its a selfish choice she has made. She has said that it would take an exceptional role to get her to leave her kids yet it doesn’t seem that way. She says yes to everything under the sun. I guess the money and his wife’s happiness is more important to Keith than who raises his children.

Some of you people are so disgusting. Nicole and Keith seem to have a very good marriage and working relationship. When Nicole is shooting a movie, her children are with her. She does not leave them home in Nashville; they travel with her, and Keith joins them at every free moment. When their children are school age, they will not travel as much. Nicole is no different than any other eight hour day working mother. Children learn to be much more independent when they do not have a “helicopter” mother around, 24-hours a day. Traveling is a way of life for this couple. When Nicole was pregnant, Keith flew to Australia and back in one day to go to their ultra sound appointment. They know what they are doing and they are doing it well.

Gee, why is there never a comment that Keith should be a stay at home dad? You skeptic nitwits are so transparent and predictable. From trying to create panic that Keith wasn’t at Day 1 of a 3 day CMA rehearsal schedule to the lies that he faked vocal issues to delay the upcoming album, your attempts to bash and trash fall short, AGAIN.

@Arius:

You obviously are not of the film world. First why should NIcole be the one to stay home. She is talented and still has a lot to offer. Secondly most film studios have an attached day care or allow caregivers on set. Thirdly, when you film, normally you are not on film all day. You can go for hours sitting in your trailer until they need you. This is why it can be a great profession for parents–you can take your child to work and spend significant time with them when you aren’t “on.” Katie Holmes does it all the time. And Nicole has said she takes the kids to the set with her. So if you have an 8-10 hour day, she may only be on set for 2-4 hours and on call for the rest of the time.
There are a lot of women who work 8-10 hours a day because they have to and would give a lot to be able to have an onsite day care or some breaks where they could see their kids.
And oh, by the way, Nicole makes more than Urban. So why shouldn’t he stay home and take care of the kids?
And yes, you are old fashioned.
Sunday and Faith look well adjusted and well loved in spite of *gasp* their mom working.

Nitwit? Wow. Mothers are more nurturing. Typically. That’s why historically men go out to work while women raise kids. They carry their babies and nurse them. They are better at nurturing. Usually. I’m sorry if my opinion offends you. That’s all it is. Name calling though?

Nice try. We’re all still waiting for one if you to say the world doesn’t need any more Keith Urban music.

They look well adjusted? As if you can see inside them and a few pap shots tell you anything about their emotional well being? But okay. If she is only away from them for a couple hours a day, that’s not bad. If that’s the case.
Working mothers typically work full time because they have to. Polls have shown that most would choose part time or not at all. It’s not easy or desirable to leave your children for many hours every day. It goes against human nature.

The Urbans certainly have the most deranged fans of the lot!!

(Unless of course, it is her PR team working overtime. Most likely!)

The truth of the matter is that Kidman is completely incongruent. What comes out of her mouth in no way at all matches her actions. She is a bold-faced liar.

THAT is why so many people simply don’t like her. No matter how beautiful or supposedly classy she is.

End of story.

@Arius: You hate women, don’t you? Based on what you said, a woman isn’t allowed to have a career. A woman isn’t allowed to have a passion. A woman isn’t allowed to have ambition. A woman who wants to work is “selfish”. A woman has to stay at home and raise the children while her husband go and live his dreams. Um, are you a mormon, perhaps?
You say the world doesn’t need more Nicole Kidman movies. Well I’m a fan of Kidman’s work and I’m glad she keeps on working. Do you think the world needs more Keith Urban music? And I agree with tsquared. From every pictures I’ve seen, Sunday and Faith look like well adjusted, happy kids. What you said about someone else raising them is incredibly cruel and just shows how nasty and judgemental you are.

@W.O.W.: Hi, psycho. Yes, you’re right. Nicole Kidman is the devil incarnate. Because she stole the man you fantasize about. And yes, I’m from her PR team. You’re a genius.

I dont hate women. What an assumption. I simply think young children should have a stay at home mother in the ideal world. The Urbans dont need more money like most families. She works for purely selfish reasons. Am I wrong? I think motherhood is in itself a full time job when the kids are young. She pays people to care for her kids. Like I said, a couple hours a day isn’t bad, but I feel it may be considerably more. What about alone time with Keith and all the exercise and manicures and other cosmetic maintenance she needs? I bet it’s more than a couple hours a day.

The more you post the more this facade of concern for their kids oeels right off. That’s why you and the couple of others that try to post under different names are nitwits. You think you’re fooling everyone when you’re fooling no one.

@Arius: My “assumption” comes from the fact that you only criticize Nicole and say nothing about Keith. Shoudn’t he stay at home and raise the kids? Nicole is far more famous than he is. She’s an international superstar. And one of the very best and most in-demand actresses in the world. Why doesn’t he stop making music? After all, who needs another Keith Urban album? Nicole has a passion for acting, just like Keith has a passion for music. They both are passionate, talented and hard-working people. They set a good example for their daughters. And you don’t know how much time they spend with them so stop making judgements based on nothing.

Women are more nurturing and better caretakers. Natures way. That is why I’m not suggesting that any man stop working. I’m not exactly impressed with his priorities. Hey, whatever. They can do as they please and they clearly do. I’m just not impressed with her and I’m sure nobody here cares what my opinion is. She can do no wrong in your eyes. Short of murder, I doubt you would fault her for anything. I don’t understand that type of fanaticism.
I got a call today. It was a recording by Clint Eastwood about politics. I guess there are people that idolize and can have their opinions swayed by celebs. I’m not one of them.

@reser:
I’m not trying to fool anyone. Your name calling continues? I don’t hate Nicole. I don’t hate people I don’t even know. I simply don’t agree with her choice. She may be a very nice person and maybe she will never regret her decision. Maybe.

Quote: Short of murder, I doubt you would fault her for anything.

lol How many times has a skeptic used that line? Reser, Orwell, tsquared, you aren’t going to get anywhere with this one.

Get anywhere? As in, change my mind? I can say the same. I don’t expect to. You find my quote funny? Consider the validity as well. Or, debate it.

@Arius you are an ignorant, backward, misogynistic fool.

@Jill:
Ignorant? Of what facts? How can my opinion of the best way to raise kids be considered misogynistic? That makes no sense. To attack someone for believing that mothers should be home with their young children is, well – low class. Think what you want. Attack as much as it takes to make you feel better. Your opinion of me means nothing. If you felt comfortable with your opinions, mine wouldn’t make you act so childishly.

@Arius As I said, and I’m perfectly comfortable saying it, your opinion on mothers is ignorant, backward, and misogynistic. All mothers should have the choice and freedom to raise their children as they feel is best for them and their families. You do not get a vote.

Nicole and Keith are soooo in love with each other and it seems to bother some people, why ?????????????

I never said they shouldn’t have a choice. Of course they should be free to do as they please. I’m not advocating that a law be passed. Another crazy assumption.

And again, ignorant of what facts? Or, cant you answer that? You are great at throwing insults. How about some substance ?

Can I chime in? I am a stay at home Mom and I also think it is best for children or I wouldn’t have made that choice. Staying home with young kiddies is hard work and not very glamorous, but totally worth the sacrifice. You get to shape their values and keep them safe as well as form a deep bond. I know many kids in the district who go home to an empty house after school and they get in lots of trouble with smoking, drugs and sex. Its good that rich people can afford supervision if nothing else. I am not ignorant or a woman hater. That was uncalled for. Maybe if I were an actress with the ability to make millions I would have a hard time quitting. LOL. That wont happen so I will never know.

Nicole herself has said that it wouldn’t bother her if she never made (or rather, acted in) another movie ever again, as she said she found it hard to be dragged out of her nest (her words), and that it would have to be a very important and meaningful film to drag her out. Words to that effect. So far her choices do not strike me as important enough to leave your young children for long stretches of time; or to drage them out of their familiar surroundings. Throughout the making of a film, actors remain very focussed on their character etc so it is an easy assumption to make that the children lose out on some level. Nicole has said also that she is more tired and has less stamina than in her twenties (obviously), so why not give it a break? She has also said that she never wants her children to ask: where is my mom? (words to that effect); maybe by that she meant that they should always know where she is; even if she is not with them. This comment has got nothing to do with Keith. Nicole has also said that when she is in her seventies and eighties, she wants to be surrounded by her children. Well, Nicole, you get what you give; good luck!

PS; it is possible to debate or argue without slinging abuse and sick names at people. Try some of the class that you recognise in others.

Keith is not “beautiful”. He’s wrinkled and is balding.

@Shelby: Good for you. Any woman is free to raise her children in whatever manner she chooses . Saying or implying that Nicole Kidman is a bad mother because she works, like Arius did, is absolutely disgusting.

@answer: Hi, psycho! May I just remind you that you don’t even know how much time she spends with her kids every day. So what the h*ll are you talking about? Also hasn’t Keith Urban himself said that Nicole is a fantastic mother?
And I love how you seem to think Nicole Kidman reads your nasty comments. It shows how crazy and obsessed you are (I quote you : “Well, Nicole, you get what you give; good luck!”). Hilarious.

@answer:

Voice of reason. Thank you.

@Shelby:
Thank you Shelby. You are to be admired and i bet you will never regret your unselfish decision.

@Orwell:

Why don’t you just crawl back under your slimy little rock. You are a really ugly person by the way you talk.

@Arius: Shelby must be so glad to meet your oh so high moral standards…

@fashion: Different name, same psycho. So I’m an ugly person because I disagree with Arius? Arius who insults every intelligent women in the world by stating that a woman can’t be a good mother if she works?

@Orwell:

My opinion should not insult anyone who feels good about themself. Are you saying that women that don’t work outside the home aren’t intelligent? Is that your opinion? I’m asking, not assuming.
Priorities dear. In the end, we won’t be judged by our paycheck.

@you: Stop changing your name, it’s annoying.

There is a good discussion going on here. Some pretty interesting questions have been asked, but not answered. Instead, some choose to simply insult and vote down. Can’t back it up, can you? That’s okay. Fanatics usually can’t explain their obsessions because they aren’t based on reason. Just blind devotion for whatever reason. You love her because of her looks? And that’s not shallow? It can’t be her acting skills, because she’s pretty light on those. Go about your defense of NK if it makes you feel useful. We all must have a purpose. Defending NK is as good as any ; )

@Arius: No, I didn’t say that. I said that any woman is free to raise her children as she chooses. You’re the one judging a woman you don’t know. You don’t know how much time Nicole Kidman spends with her kids and yet, you judge her parenting skills and say she’s a bad mother. You’re the one constantly assuming things and passing judgements based on nothing.

@You2: Another name, really? Yes, Nicole Kidman is a bad actress. That’s why she has an Oscar (and many other awards) and works with the best directors in the world. Thanks for your useless contribution.

@Orwell:

If in fact she spends more time with her kids than it seems, then good for her. I don’t think so but I could be wrong. She is a busy lady. There is much more to her career than in front of the camera time. I just don’t get the admiration for her. Is it based on her looks? You don’t even know her. Why do you care so much what other people think of her?

we know you @ 11/03/2012 at 8:22 pm

@You2 – And yet you continue to follow her every move for the last 7 years. I don’t know any normal person who combs the internet for people they hate just to comment and make up lies about them. That’s mental illness. You’re so caught up in this, do you realize it’s now 2012? You started this insane stuff in 2005. Seriously, you need a life, or help, or both.

Nothing wrong with being a fan. Being a hater is sick.

There are simply different degrees of everything.
Too much invested in being a fan can be fanatical.
A little less of what is considered ‘hatred’ is simply dislike.

Sometimes we like a lot, sometimes not so much.
Sometimes we dislike a lot, at times immensely so … but nothing that should make us bash each other for the stance we take. There are many colours that make up life. And people.

You have to wonder how much time Nicole really has for those two little girls. She works constantly on back to back films, not to mention rehearsals, costume fittings, publicity, meetings, interviews, red carpet appearances, photo shoots, Botox injections, daily exercising and every other high maintenance procedure required to keep her looking like she does. You cannot tell me there is much time left over for her ‘family’.

She was always saying she wanted to slow down, take an extended break from films to spend time with the miracle children she so desperately craved, but it never happened. More lies!

Kidman will go down in history as undoubtedly one of the greatest pathological liars hollywood has ever seen.

@Louise: They have been with Keith…

@ You with all of the names here: What is your problem, I cannot believe all of the hate you have built up in you. as far as Nicole and Keiths children, it isn’t any of your business who is taking care of them. Nicole and Keith are two down to earth people that help a lot of people with their generous donations.
