So, I'm convinced, despite what she may think of Tom Cruise, that Nicole Kidman learned a few things about business and publicity from him that she still uses today. One lesson which I think she picked up really well is building suspense for something.
Lets review because, well I need it.
When Nicole and Tom were married they adopted two kids. Mimi Rogers had always said that Tom didn't have any swimmers
When Nicole Kidman announced her pregnancy no one believed her. It wasn't until about the 8th month or so that there was even the slightest bump. I think I posted some photos around the 7th month that looked like she had something hidden under her outfit but all of you shot me down.
So, Nicole gives birth, BUT there are no photos and I don't think anyone has actually produced a birth certificate yet either.
We all gave kudos to Nicole because she wouldn't sell out her kid to the press despite the money offers. If they gave Matthew McConaughey $3M you would think Nicole could probably get in that ballpark. Probably.
So, now we have photos everyday of Keith and Nicole who looks exactly the same as before she got pregnant. Hell, she's skinnier and she still doesn't have any boobs.
Now, when Suri was born there was the big hoopla because no one had seen the kid and there were no photos, but Tom was being a crafty bastard and got hype and buzz and a crap load more money in a really good magazine for his first photos.
Now that people are wondering if there is a Nicole baby, that same buzz is happening. She has a great relationship with Vanity Fair and Vogue and so I wouldn't be surprised if Sunday Monday ends up in a magazine more known for high fashion than high chairs. That last bit is nice. Admit it. Came out of nowhere. Just like this zit which wasn't there when I went to sleep last night. Where the hell do they come from?
Of course all this could be moot because if you look at this photo long enough you will think Nicole is a guy anyway.
