The case of the missing inlaws

Clockwise from top left: Keith's parents, Nicole's parents, Shane Urban and wife. Inset: Nicole, who'd perhaps rather not hang out with her mother-in-law.

In marriages you often find that the groom hangs out more with the bride's family. Perhaps this is because the bride can't stand the mother-in-law or monster-in-law. Ever wondered why Nicole never visits Queensland where Keith's parents and his brother Shane live? Is it because they are too common for HER liking? I mean Keith's Dad has one of those long moustaches and is not as well educated as Doctor Antony Kidman. Keith's Mum is not as well educated as Nurse Janelle Kidman. Still, this shouldn't matter since Nicole herself dropped out of high school.

Perhaps it is more because Keith's parents don't fit the image of inlaws that NKU fanatics would expect. Or is it because they are 'too countryish'? Anyone who has been to Caboolture will know the sort of townsfolk you get there. Nevertheless, there are some lovely regions around that part of Australia. Keith's brother Shane lives close-by on the beautiful Sunshine Coast and is well regarded by the locals. By the way, what I like about Shane is that he is balding gracefully, unlike Keith.

You may recall, Nicole arrived into Sydney recently to see her family, and Keith followed after finishing the Brisbane concert. He remained in Sydney to spend Christmas with HER family again. Remember last year, when they spent Christmas with HER parents again (in Nashville). Whatever happened to one year with your family, and one year with my family. Like married people do.

How come she will only buy investment properties in the State she comes from? Surely Keith would like a place in Queensland? Perhaps he already has one or two there, before he met Nicole.

So, does anyone else get the impression that Nicole doesn't like his parents much? It's all just seems rather odd.

Just to finish off, if anyone has any photos of Nicole with Keith's parents, please send them to us. Wedding photos excluded. Thanks.

Well, ONLY Keith & Nicole & their families know why they haven't visited the in-laws. It's not for us to figure out. Maybe there are perfectly good logical reasons why the visit hasn't happened yet. It doesn't mean it won't. I'm sure they keep in contact by phone and internet. I just wish them all the very best and pray that 2010 is better for them as well as all of us.

Perhaps this will be the year when the media focuses more on Ms.Kidman and her notoriously inconsistent statements and contradictions.

The couple have been in Australia for a fortnight and yet there are no pictures of them with Keith's family. Photographers can find them with Ms.Kidman's family at will it seems. The photographers can even find Ms.Kidman's sister and her fiancee embracing/kissing on the beach! Yet those same cameras can't find Keith/Kidman with his own family, not even for one pic? A family that he was previously very close to.

Sometines Keith Urban strikes me as being quite vulnerable and at times very overwhelmed. He seems more sure and true to himself when he is performing.

Good luck to them though, for whenever children are involved one should always wish the best.

I think it is the other way round. His parents don't like her. She doesn't fit in with them. They may be media shy and dont want any part of her PR games. They are smart enough, I am sure, to see through this woman. Maybe he has fallen out with his family after marrying this cow.

Yeah, Deidre, this is also my take on it. It is obvious, just as cruise's kids have clearly forsaken kidman, orbs family would also not care to be papped with her! And you can add these photo ops to the long list of documented photos that orbs family are not into kidman's public PR family...

Sunday Urban Is A Sydney Sweetie

"What a cutie! Nicole Kidman's parents Antony and Janelle took their gorgeous granddaughter Sunday Rose for a walk through a park in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday (December 30). Wearing her sun-protective hat, Sunday looked too cute for words playing in the grass and admiring the local birds."

Well, choice it's pretty obvious you will not recieve any photos of orbs family...or even be able to find any! Recall, that is was revealed that orbs parents didnt even get to see their granddaughter on their first trip back to OZ with the baby...but only saw her in person months later!

Choice said...

Hi Maclen - thanks for the link to the photos of Grandma Janelle with Sunday Roast. T'is a pity the child is not getting to grow up in Australia with all the grandparents around.

I am sure there is some truth in that ie. the Urbans dont want to know Nicole or her lifestyle. Yet I think Nicole is just as happy with that arrangement. Plus she can protect her lily white skin by avoiding trips to Queensland where the sun is harsher LOL.

People continue to bury their heads in the sand regarding the Urban family. I agree with Anon 12:02, if the paps can find photos of the Kidman family, why can't they find photos of the Urbans? A single one? For a guys who used to be extremely close to his family, it's coming across as VERY strange. Hell, when Shane turned 40, Keith flew home for just one day to help him celebrate. The situation is quite sad actually.

We've heard this all before said...

Why do any of you busybodies care? There hasn't been one person with the ability to confirm the Urbans are shut out of Keith's life or that they dislike the Kidmans. God forbid they have their own lives and aren't there when people who aren't even fans want them to be. Why the hell do you feel a right to know any of this stuff? It's always negative speculation which is the result of anything this couple does. Nothing but a broken record.

If the Urbans had been around for every event, every holiday, every break, and at every concert none of you would have a different opinion about Nicole Kidman.
They'd be playing interference or "protecting" their son from the evil Kidman clan. It's all pretend that you care one way or the other. No matter what, Nicole Kidman will get slammed. Nobody believes your concern for anyone in this family particularly Sunday who I know you will be stalkerishly watching like a hawk.
People are laughing at you for thinking you know anything about the Kidmans or the Urbans. The skeptics that post on The Awful Truth are the same ones that post under different names here. Don't kid yourself.

Choice the sun is harsh in Sydney too. Worse down where they have their estate. I'm not fooled.

SkewerMistress said...

Anon: the paps and gossip websites can't identify the nanny correctly or differentiate Antonia's young child from Sunday. If, and this is my theory, the Urbans went through the front entrance to get to the penthouse in Sydney they'd be able to pass through unnoticed.

She's as cute as all babies are, not gorgeous or special. See somewhat resemblance to keith, but see absolutely none of defining kidman distinct features esp around the nose/mouth of grandpa and causins. Don't see nicole anywhere, no eyes, nose (somewhat a distinct feature but neither kidman nor urban), lips, etc. would be a xxxxxth world wonder to see what into this little one morphs. Given her history of spur of the moment lies and gibberish, who knows who this baby's real parents are.

So suddenly the Australian paparazzi fail to recognize Keith's Urban's parents and his brother although they have recognized them in the past?

The maternal grandparents can be captured many times with their grandchild and the paternal grandparents not?

Private or not, one would think that at least ONCE the other side of the family would be seen. If the paparazzi can capture one side of the family, they can capture the other side as well.

Maybe the Urban side should let on how they are able to keep out of sight!

Laughing? Hardly. Even Nicole fans are wondering about Keith's family. As one Nicole fan put it, "I've been wondering about them too, but I'm afraid to create a firestorm". The other fans are just burying their heads in the sand and trying to pretend everything is just fine.

The paps/gossip sites are still taking the pics regardless if they identify the people correctly. BUT we would still know who they were. They take pics of anybody around Keith, Nicole or Sunday. And in the entire time, there has not been a single photo or comment about Keith's family.

The people critizing us are missing the point in all this. For a man who was always so close to his own family, this glaring absence is telling.

Some people just can't get it in their heads that some people in this world have absolutely no use for Nicole Kidman. They don't like her. They don't like the lies told and the poor acting ability. That could include her inlaws. Mr. Urban once said that he didn't like himself offstage. I wonder if he does now that the wife runs his life.

Tara said...

Keith does have a relationship with his parents. They were at his Brisbane shows and were over in the states at his Buffalo show. They visted him in Nashville. Do they have a relationship with his wife? That is a good question. The few times they were all together, Christmas 05, the end of the tour 05, those occasions became photo ops.
Before Kidman, Keith's mum was around a lot. She was approachable and very nice but with Kidman everything is drama and why would anyone want to be a part of that?

maclen said...

It certainly wouldnt even be an issue of there werent SO many tabloid pics of the kid with kidman's parents. So naturally it gets people wondering if the orb's parents are even around! For, whether they like it or not, the holiday vacation will be documented. And based on the number of photo ops particularly of this holiday season in OZ...JJ and GG it seems have been able to get their average of 15 to 20 pics per "event"...the coordinated effort to get the "happy family" vibe out is pretty noticable...and I think the absence of orb's family is very telling. And also clearly orb has lost, to many of his former fans, qualities that made him an original draw to them. I doubt if these very "public" show of a 'happily domesticated orb' is gonna help!

Choice said...

Maclen - I wonder if Nicole has an agreement with JJ or GG as they always seem to put the favourable photos of her up. She must ring them and tell them her agenda. Once again, a true famewhore is our Nic.

Oh yeah, they are an inept team kidman preferred tabloid source! As I mention, they seem to be aways set up and ready to get that 15 to 20 pics set almost everytime! Just a quick search on JustJared shows they've had 5 photo opportunities in the few weeks in Oz... see here...

Choice, could it be that JJ and GG are part of Rupert Murdoch's media empire (as I've heard). Does that explain it?

Choice said...

Mmm. So JJ and GG are owned by Murdoch. I should have realised, since she is supposedly mates with Lachlan Murdoch and his wife. Otherwise, how would any media know that she had gone to the zoo. She wants HER paps, not non-Murdoch paps.

Keith Urban is nothing but a wooz. A little man who likes to be shoved around by women. She tells him what they are doing, not the other way around. He looks like a sissy too. I heard awhile ago that he is bi-sexual. He certainly looks like he swings both ways.

Imahick said...

If you don't realize that something is wrong here, YOU are burying your head in the sand.

Keith's family did not get pictures of Sunday Rose for weeks after she was born. That was confirmed in an interview from his brother.

There are no pictures of the Urban family with Sunday and he spends every holiday with Kidmans.

Do his folks see him... I think yes, from time to time. Yes, they were at his Brisbane shows. Note that NK and Sunday weren't there...and I think having a family get together right before the holidays would be natural. The lack of involvement is remarkable.

And don't bother to say it's because he's married and it's natural that his mother is not around as much. Not sending the paternal grand parents a picture of your first child for weeks, in this day and age, when it's as simple as pressing the send button in your email, is essenitally proof of something being rotten in the state of Queensland (or more likely Kidmanville).

I think that his family is not interested in the PR flurry she encourages. And I think she finds them "below" her status. I still remember the buses that brought Keith's family to the wedding while NK's family got limos.
