Lainey Blind Item

If motherhood is so rewarding, and what she’s been waiting for her entire life, why is it that there is no evidence of motherhood in her home? Particularly accessories. Pottery Barn doesn’t sell baby bottles.

Which could be why she insists on banning them from the house?

How does she feed her child when there are no bottles in the house?

Well… it’s because she doesn’t feed her child. It’s because the nannies feed her child. The nannies do everything for the child all days of the week. The nannies nanny morning and night while she works morning and night.

Perhaps that’s how she can justify her mandates: no bottles in the house, only bottles in the nanny trailers. She’s the modern mom?

this can't be alba. does she have the kind of money to have round the clock nannies, 7 days/wk?

life is but a dream said...

kidman?

Ella B. said...

X-tina?

Quintessential Southerner said...

kidman's a great guess.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I don't think it's Nicole Kidman - it was my first guess, but she does already have kids, even though not biological. I think it's Jessica Alba. I don't know why but she just doesn't seem that attached to her child. Which usually is a sign of more serious problems like post partum depression and such.

Urban Myths said...

Kidman gets my vote...

k said...

Um, why are people guessing Jessica Alba? She hasn't worked once since she had the baby. There are no trailers because she's not working. Kidman's a possibility since there were actually nannies spotted holding bottles when those pictures were taken of them boarding the plane. But , again, Alba? Not one day of work since the baby was born.

EgosRested said...

I vote Kidman.

The use of Pottery "Barn" and nanny "trailers" makes me think that it's a hint referring to Nicole's husband's career as a country musician and her new life in Tennessee.

Mooshki said...

Harriet, Nicole said a couple of times before she got pregnant that she couldn't wait to be a mom, so for her the adopted kids don't count. :(

Cairbre said...

"If motherhood is so rewarding, and what she’s been waiting for her entire life..."

Can't be Kidman, she already has kids!

Princess Buttercup said...

Pottery Barn does not make me think of Kidman - she would never condescend to something so mass-produced. Pottery barn and trailers make me think of JLS – even though I don’t think it is her either.

Princess Buttercup said...

oh and my first thought was J-Lo

BinkyM said...

It can't be Kidman; no one's seen any evidence that she has a baby. It's all smoke and mirrors thus far.

not a famous adrian said...

I also thought JLo, but it said child, singular.
Nicole sound like a good guess, but is there even a child to feed?

kmt said...

my first guess is Kidman ... I honestly don't even think she was pregnant. Did you see her in her "skinny" jeans a week after giving birth? Sorry that doesn't happen. Also - she never looked pregnant when she was pregnant.

EgosRested said...

I doubt that Nicole actually shops at Pottery Barn.

The word is just a tool in the blind item to make a hint. Two reasons...because Pottery Barn has the word barn in it (country reference), and also because Nicole's been championing herself as an everyday person in Nashville. Like someone who would shop at Pottery Barn.

"Trailer" and "Barn" could easily refer to many contemporary country songs as Urban is a country musician. Also, they are currently living in a temporary house on their property, where their new, much larger house is being built. I could easily see her going as far as to set up modulars to accommodate the nannies and baby stuff.

Scott said...

My very first guess was Halle Berry.

i am a princess, yes i am said...

oh scott I believe that and i recall her talking extensively to Oprah et al. about waiting her entire life to being a mother.

shazzzba said...

I THOUGHT HALLE BERRY ALSO.....LOVE HOW NOBLE THE PRESS IS MAKING HER FOR NOT SELLING HER BABY PICTURES....VERY FUNNY...SHE AND KIDMAN WEREN'T OFFERED THE KIND OF MONEY THEY THOUGHT THEY DESERVED....SO THEY BOTH COVERED UP THE KIDS FOR MONTHS....AND FINALLY REALIZED IT DIDN'T HELP...SO THEY GAVE UP AND TOOK THE BABIES PUBLIC....

jax said...

Xtina.

did she not do the whole 'preparing for motherhood, something i've always wanted etc.." on US weekly or something?

i would also like to add that Xtina looks knocked up again in the face...very bloated if not a baby then stay off the coke.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

My first thought was Nicole Kidman. Isn't she on location shooting something now?

Grace said...

Alba did say that she was "not into breastfeeding." It could be her. Odd, though. Sounds like an older mom who has been single for a long time and now is just becoming a mother.

The Pottery Barn reference may just be for effect, meaning everything but baby stuff, and not entirely accurate.

Hey, what about the blind about that actress who completely neglected the baby but whose parents are the ones doing everything??

amster said...

I don't think it is anyone that has been mentioned altho I don't have anything to offer either. Apparently Lainey hasn't heard of Pottery barn Kids. Who works morning and night that is a new mother. I am getting the impression this is a single mother.

Scott said...

yeah, this BI seems to denote an "older" actress who has had trouble conceiving or whatnot. Alba doesn't really seem to fit the bill. She was 26 when she got pregnant and it wasn't planned.

Kidman seems like a good guess, but like cairbre said-she already has kids.

I'm sticking with the Halle guess. She had her baby mid-March, and we didn't see her til a couple of days ago. Where's Gabriel?

She also claimed to have saved 35 negative pregnancy tests in a drawer until she came up with a positive one. She's always talked about her strong desire to be a mother, and at 41, it happened.

But seriously, something has seemed fishy there. I have a strong feeling there's another reason why she didn't put her kid on the cover after all these strong declarations of the joys of pregnancy. It's Halle frickin' Berry-and no cover?

Michelle said...

the clue is I have been waiting for this all my life.. I think halle said it verbatim.

Gayla said...

My first thought was Xtina although for some reason 'trailers' made me immediately think of movie trailers.

Xtina would make sense because barely a couple of weeks after her kid was was born she was out promoting her concert dvd and doing signings at a book store. She also works for this b/c if she's working on a new album she'd be working day and night on writing and recording, which is a process we would hear little to nothing about. This is different from an actress, if they are working on any movies we pretty much know what they're signed on to before they even show up to the set.

I don't usually keep up with upcoming releases or what movies are currently in production, but I don't think Halle working on anything right now. I don't think Alba can afford around the clock nannies (plural). Maybe ONE nanny, but not multiple nannies.

Something else that occurred to me is that this also doesn't sound like an actress becasuse the mother in question is apparently still living at home, and not on location. I'm guessing the trailers are on her property.

Harriet Hellfire said...

But if you guess Nicole Kidman, you are saying that she actually had a baby *L*.

I do like the Halle Berry guess.

Anonymous said...

Its Ricky Martin Duh

Kristen S. said...

Lainey has a thing for Kidman (as in, she has an irrational hatred of Kidman), so I would not be surprised if this is about her. Lainey also LOVES to conveniently forget that Nicole already has kids. In fact, now that both exes have bio children, most media reports about them don't even mention poor Bella & Conner.

kathryn said...

Kidman for sure. I can totally see that ice queen refusing to let messy little children make a mess of her life.

amster said...

Halle sure fits the criteria. She has a lot going on right now as both an actress and producer.I can't imagine her letting trailers on her own property if she is that picky about baby bottles. I guess it could be on location altho, it sounds like it is at her own house. You wouldn't be surprised if ice queen Nicole did this, but coming from Halle would be a shock. I think Nicole has a baby, just not sure she is the one who actualy gave birth it. I kind of think she had a surragate.

operaghost said...

Has to be someone doing quite well for themselves -- lots of work lined up, able to keep multiple nannies. Likes to make mandates. Keeps nanny trailers, but is that on set or on her own property? I'm unclear on that. It sounds as though the trailers would be on her own property, since Lainey's referring to "no bottles in the house."

A piece of work, that's for sure.

Probably not someone with twins, so much as I'd like it to be J.Lo, it's probably not her.

Lainey does hate Nicole Kidman... and the clues do seem to fit. But is she working? I thought she was taking time off.

Re: Jessica Alba (06-07-08) -- People.com reported that she did some last-minute shopping for baby gear at Bel Bambini on Robertson Boulevard, picking up Born Free baby bottles and a Boppy pillow for breastfeeding on June 9th. Well, that didn't work out, but it sounds like she tried. :) I don't know if she's been working.

Good grief, that's a lot of babies. And it doesn't even count the 2nd/3rd/4th/5th babies also born in the last year in H-wood. Hmm, maybe there *was* something in the water! LOL.

Julie said...

whoever it is should get checked by a shrink stat. she could have post partum depression aaand divaism.

and i didn't realize that busy phillips had a baby.

Amy said...

I lean towards Kidman as well...as for whether she actually delivered a baby...I suspect her sister Antonia had the baby FOR her....in the past there have been sisterly photo shoots by the paps...especially during her divorce to Tom. Haven't seen Antonia in a LONG time, let alone with Nicole...and the only mention of her AFTER Sunday's birth was a brief story about Nicole's mom and sister flying in quickly to see the baby. You would think there would be a few doting auntie pics, no? Unless she was the surrogate....

Cheryl said...

I know Lainey hates Kidman, but her NK blind items are usually nastier and more obvious. She also would have thrown in a dig at Keith Urban and a joke about whether or not the baby even exists. I'm riding the Halle train. She has always struck me as pretty on the outside, ugly on the inside. No mention of Gabriel either as they are reported to still be together but he refuses move to LA permanently.

Ella B. said...

If it's Kidman, that means she went and hired nannies to "feed" one of those fake babies that are used in high school sex ed classes!

Martina! said...

just to add another name to the list.... Selma Hayek?!

Lainey had a blind about her a while back claiming she was a bitch etc

is she still working on Ugly Betty?!

nunaurbiz said...

I'm kinda thinking it isn't someone with a NEWBORN. All the references are to a "child." So it makes me think of someone with a young toddler still on a bottle?

But maybe I'm being too literal.

I don't think it's Nicole Kidman. Maybe Nicole Richie, tho.... that's who came to mind for me. She and what's his face started a child foundation thing and she was sooooo maternal during the pregnancy and early after giving birth, but lately she looks miserable and I can't remember a recent pic HOLDING the baby. The baby's either not present or in the stroller.

Has Nicole Richie done any work where she'd be housed in a trailer?

operaghost said...

Oooh, Salma Hayek! That's a great guess.

plot said...

2nd on the Salma guess!

Salma is from a wealthy family. I bet this was the way she was raised - no children cluttering up the main house, kids stuff belongs in the nursery.

Not all that unusual.

nate said...

I'm on the Halle train. I checked IMBD and she has 4 projects lined up. 3 of the 4 are listed as being either in-production or pre-production. Plus, we all know that Halle has been waiting a long time for many things in her life: real love, a good marriage and child(ren)... 1 out of 3 ain't bad.

violet said...

Just throwing this out there but what about Marcia Cross? Yes there are always pics of her with the kids, but people do certain things for a certain persona in the media.
Pottery Barn could be a reference to her character on Desperate Housewives.

Judi said...

On the Kidman bandwagon here. Also, has anyone read the second BI on Lainey's site? Whoever is the answer to that one needs a good a$$whoopin' and years of unemployment.

Lynne said...

Here's picture of Halle at the zoo this weekend with her baby and her Mom. I don't know if it's her.

Miss X said...

It appears Halle's mom watches the baby a lot. Which makes me think not so likely it's Halle. Grandma isn't a Nanny. Who would ask their mom to watch their kid but keep all baby paraphanalia out of the house?

I'm leaning towards Kidman for this one.

Katja said...

Sharon Stone?

zandra said...

Y'all missed the big clue.


The nannies do everything for the child all days of the week.

Lainey does have an irrational hatred of Nicole, I guess she got dissed at TIFF one year and hasn't gotten over it, but the days of the week refers to Sunday Urban.

Who knows if it's true, however a friend of mine gave birth and was back at her salon 3 days later working, she felt fine and thought she would be working out that week too. It can happen.

She's Electric said...

'The days of the week' argument is compelling, but I'm not so sure it's Nicole. Lainey posted a story about Keith Urban today and didn't hint to this blind item at all in that post. It doesn't seem like Lainey to hold back given that chance.

Maybe Halle Berry. The post about her a few days ago seemed kind of cynical about her choice not to sell pictures of the baby.

ally said...

I remember seeing a recent photo of Britney Spears with PB bags. Although she allegedly spends a lot, her tastes are pretty common and conventional. Then there is the obvious that she really doesn't seem too into her kids....

Wil said...

Given how much Lainey loves Nicole Kidman .. I will say Nicole Kidman.

Jamie's Girl said...

I just can't believe it is Kidman. She has already had a baby, however, she had not been pregnant and given birth.

I'm thinking Halle Berry myself. She's the one who word for word said she waited her whole life. She may have post partum depression though. Keith would have had post partum depression, not Nicole.

J said...

SARAH PALIN!

Easy.

Anonymous said...

I'm just skimming through, so I have not read everything ya'll have figured out. But on first glance I think that EgosRested is on to something.

Beth said...

I'm going with Halle Berry.

This kinda reads as if Lainey is referring to a single mom. While Halle has a partner/bf, I would say she financially wears the pants in the family and that it is HER house.

I could be persuaded to come over to the Kidman camp, but I am still not convinced that Kidman popped that puppy herself. I can't recall who made the comments, but Bella and Conor seemed to have abandoned her as their mother. There was a blind a while ago that seemed to be about Tom and Nicole's pre-nup, which stated she had to relinquish any rights to her family if they were to break up.

Despite having adopted them, Kidman, in essence, does not seem to have any kids besides Sunday.

sauvage said...

What about Marcia Cross? Laney could just have said "child" instead of "children" just to not give it away. Marcia talked about having wanted children so badly and then in her forties ... and so on.

Princess Buttercup said...

Lainey does hate Kidman which is exactly why she would make the blind sound like it could be her when it is really someone else.

Ted does the same thing with Angelina and heroin. I am really liking the Halle guess. Has anyone guessed Salma? She is 42 and single. I am not sure if she is working a lot or whether she made any comment about always wanting to be a mom though.

Princess Buttercup said...

sorry, I did a little "find on this page" and saw that indeed someone had already guessed Salma :)

mialou said...

The blind doesn't say that the mother isn't with her child only that she doesn't feed her. WHat about Katie Holmes? Suri is always walking around with a bottle in her mouth, and she is a little on the older side to be doing that.

Jungle007 said...

I agree about Salma... she was really excited to become a mom, whether or not she made a speech about it like halle apparenly did...

Halle's another good guess... but i really thought she had a 13 year old daughter(?)... maybe it was her neice or something, but i'm positive i've seen pics of her with a young girl who looked exactly like her a few years ago...

I guess i'm the only person who likes NK. I see her ranting about wanting a baby so badly as a sign that she would be all for doing traditional motherly things, like having baby paraphenelia around the house... also, tho birthing and labour are new to her, motherhood is not.

not a famous adrian said...

jungle--that is Eric Bennet's daughter--they are still close.

Diana said...

Lainey ruled out Halle for this one. (She also ruled out Courtney Cox for the 'anger management' blind.)

Catherine said...

damn it, as much as I like her I know it is J. Lo. She made the comment about wanting to be a mom her whole life so it was Skeletor's turn to take care of her. Now what she is working on day and night remains a mystery...
