Kurbans new investment property

They won't live in Sydney ever again (thank you) but they are happy to purchase a new penthouse apartment in Lavender Bay to stay in once a year. The new $6 million purchase is close to where Nicole's parents live. The photo above shows Nicole on the balcony during a house warming luncheon with her parents.

You may recall Nicole got rid of the Darling Point home she owned last year claiming it did not have enough outdoor garden for children. Why was that an important issue when she never stays in Sydney, I hear you ask. Exactly. Notice they didn't buy a Queensland property near Keith's parents? That's because ...

She's certainly entitled to spend her money however she likes (sorry), whether waste it or put it to good use. Not sure what the issue is here.... In spite of all talks about her asking price cut in half and all that, can't be poor to mess around in today's global (real estate and otherwise) depressed economy?

Yeah, as I noted over at UM...kidman looks positively "enrapured" by all the property talk! Basically, for celebs like kidman, who's lives are about the recognition and attention...a "home" is whatever trailer...or rented house or hotel room that are provided by the film studio. The property they are constantly aquireing and promptly selling are simply investments. And to someone like kidman, settling down means staying at a certain location for weeks at a time...and then off to the other film set trailer, hotel room...etc

So where is the outdoor garden here? It must be hidden on the balcony somewhere. Why do they never visit Keith's parents? He used to be so close to them, and now it's like they don't exist. It's all about her parents, her family. He looks like a duck out of water on that balcony. He's not even part of the conversation. He's probably not intellectual enough for them.

In other pictures snapped at this time Kidman has her hands on her hips glaring at little Sunday. No wonder the poor child NEVER smiles.

And yet again, no sign of Keith's family. What happened to that big family Christmas Keith talked about? Who put the stop to it?

There were some smiling pics of Sunday. When Keith greated them at the airport in Sydney.

Image updated with that photo included. Kidman is looking like that because she has to change a dirty nappy.

There were more shots of this event posted at other sites, but in all Keith is obviously not a principal contributer of whatever conversation they were having. He's a major country music star in his own right, or at least I was led to believe. He appears now to be nothing more than her arm dog. A couple/few years ago her coupling with Steve Bing -- boy, that guy would not have fit in to roles apparently subjected to Keith or her family... Also in all, there was not an iota display of affection for a grandchild they don't see often. It's as though a curious piece, and nothing more. This little girl is not theirs anyway.

Well, I'd say this article says it all...

No paparazzi as Kurban mansion idle

...anyone who actually buys into kidman's PR BS...that she just really wants to retire and settle down onto "the farm to raise goats and grow squash and just let her kid run free in their spacious back yard" will be waiting a long time before it actually ever happens. The only place little sunri will ever play in is apartment hallways and condo terrace's in which ever city kidman is working in. Fine kidman chose, as she herself put it, to live "a gyspy's life"...but this BS about "settling down" and how her "family" is her most important consideration above all else... falls like a dead weight when it gets used as promotion.

"Why do they never visit Keith's parents? He used to be so close to them, and now it's like they don't exist."

We aren't priviledged to be included in each & every moment of their vacation. I'm sure that before they leave Australia they will "pop over" for a visit to the Urban "camp. I'm glad if they get some private time with their families & we don't see photos of it or read about it. They are people with families they love & they need that private time just like we do. It all doesn't have to be in the press for it to actually happen & be enjoyed by them. Hopefully this time down under will be a very relaxing, special time for all of them.

Yes, this is the usual and stock answer from the kidman and orb fans...they seem to have a self imposed "naiveté"...or in the case of the orb's monkeylander fanies...they engage in that "simian" saying of "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil." You see it all the time when someone on a random blog about kidman points out in the comments that kidman is no longer seen... at all... with her "presumed" adopted kids...and the fansies answer to that is..."She MUST see the adopted kids..because...well, she is such a loving mother!" And just because it hasnt been "documented" in years doesnt mean she doesnt. Well, actually for someone who, in her first week back in OZ...was documented...visiting her parents with her child...visiting her sis with her child...and just recently pap'd on a condo balcony with her parents...I find it rather suspicious that it wasnt also "documented" that she took orb's kid to see his parents...or documented that kidman even attended an orb gig for that matter. As to a "fan" hoping they can have a "private" vacation without the paps or reports of their comings and goings...I wouldnt mention that to the fansie site members...who post every...paparatz pic...every article of their doings...and for christ's sake...annonymous twitter postings of up to date sightings! For the truth is, the fansies are the most curious and desperate for any crumbs of news of what they do! And so basically, if there is no pics of kidman with cruise's kids...or visiting orbs parents...it's more than likely because it just doesnt happen!

Oh Joy. I hope you like living in your fantasy land.

While it's true that they need private time just like we do, it just seems odd that all of the pictures we are seeing of them in Australia so far are with Kidman's family. Surely, if the paparazzi can find them with Kidman's extended family, they can find them with Keith's?

OMG! If Woman's Day says it happened, then it must be true. Funny how the fans choose to believe Woman's Day when they like what it says. It's a gossip mag who doesn't know what they are talking about when it says something they don't like.

The ones who are choosing to believe this aren't even stopping to think that this makes Kidman look incredibly rude. According to this article, Kidman spent time catching up the Urbans & then she dumps them & goes to her own family? And why would they be in Sydney with Keith doing 2 shows in Brisbane beginning that night. They are so quick to believe something that they want to believe that they overlook the facts.

I think the point about Keith's family not being around is that both he and Nicole said they would be celebrating Christmas with both their families. Keith even talked about his brothers two kids being around. So where are they? We've seen pictures of them with her parents. We've seen pictures of her visiting her sister and her sisters kids. So if Keith's familiy were around you would think there would have been at least one picture with them in it. So either they lied about his family being involved, or his family decided not to participate for some reason. I just think it is odd that he rarely speaks of them anymore, but he talks about her family in almost every interview.

I told you...shhhhh...Keith is not too bright, lame to be specific, and his life's being sucked out by her -- and her family. She's really not much to sacrifice one's self over...shhhhhh...but Keith doesn't realize it or that he's really not happy. He's too lame to make his life and birth family choices priorities.

I don't think Keith Urban is strong enough to put his foot down either.
He seems like a very nice man though.

Oh look, a new photo of Sunday with her Kidman grandparents.

I guess Keith's parents must stay under lock & key and that's why we haven't seen ANY pics or news about them.

So, now you can add...courtesy of kidman's official prearranged photo op sources, JJ and GG...documented photos of kidman with...a giraffe at the zoo...

...but as of yet no pics of kidman with her in-laws! Well, as of yet...will there ever be? How long will it be, do you suppose, when kidman will ever be photographed again with cruise's kids in any of thes countless photo ops...that kidman so reportedly also adopted and supposedly has equal custody? I mean, would kidman not at least want the adopted kids in Oz with her on xmas...or for a visit with...well her family? And at this suspicious point, do you suppose it is actually the adopted kids and orbs parents who are actually too embarrassed to be involved with kidman's rather pathetic prearranged photo ops? I absolutely suspect that the orb has willingly taken a swig of the kidman kool aid...and perhaps the other's not involved would rather...and wisely...keep their distance from the kidman circus? Well, if true, I give them props for being totally untainted by kidman's garish need for constant attention!
