I guess having the kids live with Tom is more convenient so why fight it....they are only your kids. I guess that's how a Hollywood mother such as Nicole looks at it. Hey but..she did take them to the Kids Choice Awards so she did get her time in on the calendar.

Well since Tom is not busy and neither is Katie, it works well. Besides, Tom would never let the kids live with Nicole.

Tom is too much of a control freak.. but that's their lives- let them live it as they will. Keith and Nicole are happy and at peace.....she sees the kids when she can and, when they become of age they will be around more, wait and see..

hi hope!

you know - i think we are ALL control freaks - we just all have different [and more and more 'customised' dashboards].

If it weren't for the filming of 'australia', nicole would be 'home' in the states virtually full-time - except for her jaunts around the world - which will as time goes by tone down - obviously. The filming of 'aus' was and is an extraordinary experience that no one in their fight mind would turn away - right down to the juniorest grips!

being on that kind of location-set is everyone's dream - and nicole is living it!! That part I most definietly envy her - having worked in the world of film/acting and advertising myself. Travel, especially, was ALWAYS a carrot in the jobs I chose ... in Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong, India, London and Australia ... oh .. and here too ... but not any more here [other things now].

anyway ... but of a ramble ... that's because i have a huge mountain to climg in the next few days/weeks ... i almost feel guilty sneaking the time off that to come on down here ... at least to read the recent conversations and catch up with keith's shenanigans!

and your!

LOVE
PEACE
FUN

right mind not 'fight mind'... tho that could work too.

hey also to Rita [enjoy your PRIZE!!!] <3 :)

and windywoof and keithlover, lucy, fair-square and truth and sinea 'n'all

i found this cute thing made up of letters that constitutes our Table Mountain - which looks like a table... and has two peaks - one on either side:
'Devil' Peak on the left and Lion's head on the right - which also has a 'bum'- Signal Hill - where, ironically, the noon day gun shoots off a huge 'fart' every day.

/\/*****\/

have more fun ...

~.^.~

btw - I've gone totally blonde - or rather going there ... remember my hair was dark auburn?... well it now is exactly Nicole's colour - strawberry - because mall hair colour [red] is the hardest to strip! turning a whiter shade of pale ... i heard online that if one changes hair colour it should be to what u were as a toddler - well - i was platinum blonde then ... so that's the place i'm headed!! slowly so i don't fry my hair ... HUGE difference in the street already!!!

mainly for me it is to embrace grey without the schleppp - i always noticed grey was OK on blondes - and attractive platinums are cool - ala meryl in the 'devil'.

anyway, for me it is
going from witch to bitch;

now i'll kick on the 3-4 inch heels and get right up there in nicole's altitude!

fun

They were not this age when the divorced, and the children were with Tom. Come on, kids know who has their act together and who doesn't. They want to be with a stable parent. Jumping on couches is not the end of the world! I'd do it too if I was going to marry the man of my dreams. Tom provides security, discipline, LOVE and a family atmosphere. Suri has a brother and sister she loves. A beautiful mother who has a heart. Why would any kid want to leave that?

yup, that family is looking very solid!!!

you can't knock Tom for being one of the most successful people on this planet ... for a long time time now ... he also appears very generous to me. and i truly beieve his heart is in th eright place ... irrespective of the 'techniques' he use to get him there.

when nicole married him he was already a MAJOR ICON!!!

i think he is in fact at the end of the day a beautiful guy!

i hereby pick up my earlier crush on him!

yeah,'50+ going on teenager'!!!(me!)

i really do think that tom is more stable than 'our nic'. she's too flighty and vain IMO, to be dedicating time to her 'cubs', as she calls them. they are american, born in america, and for all his notoriety (c.o.g., control freak, couch jumper) i'd say that he (and katie) are genuinely good parents, and the kids will be brought up in their own country, with their own established routines. if they choose to leave the c.o.g. when they come of age, even better! but, they could do a lot worse!'our nic' seems to me to be the type who wants all the glory (still) and it will be hard enough for her to be a mother to sunday, let alone 2 teenagers. and don't forget! she's got keith to boss around, all those botox injections, various plastic surgery ops, as well as her 'career', to put ahead of the needs of I and C. she has had every oppurtunity to fight a legal custody battle, or even purchase a house near them so as to be able to see them more often. the truth is.....she hasn't wanted to. and she can't say that tom is 'bullying' her; she's a woman with clout, with HEAPS of money, and a good quality support system (in her oz family and)? many friends in the bizz. i think that the older cubs don't even like her that much - otherwise they'd be asking to spend more time with her.(have they met sunday yet?) i know they didn't soon after she was born, but school etc might have prevented it. a quick flight to oz and back, for them, wouldn't be a problem for the cruiser to wrangle, even 4/5 days. he's got all the money in the world!

I don't think Isabella and Connor want anything to do with her. They know they were always last on her list of priorites and now that they are old enogh to have some say in the matter she's not someone they want to waste their time with. And I doubt that all her idiotic remarks about her real baaaybee are endearing her to them any either.

I know this is your opinion but why do you make this comment?

Because it's what I beleive Windy. I read one of her interviews recently where she's going on and on about how she feels like a Mother now because she has her real baby at last.Like the fact that she has been a Mother for the last 15 years means nothing at all. Then later in she says that she knows Bella reads her interviews. Yet she still says crap like that for her to read. She sure doesn't seem to have any concern for those two children at all. I think they know it,since she's made it pretty obvious and I think the feeling is starting to be mutual. JMO

while I know the experience of mothering a birth child must be very different to mothering an adopted child ... hormonally .. I still feel certain comments nicole has made are insensitive toward her adopted kids ... in particular when she says "now I don't want to die" ... meaning I need to be around for Sunday,'her 21st','her wedding' etc .... which means she didn't care if she died etc in terms of her adopted children. at least, that is a way that her adopted children COULD read it. I just think she should keep all these revelations to herself. the timing of them is suspect seeing as she is on the campaign trail for her new movie. I also find it extraordinary that a person who has SO much ... in fact EVERYTHING anyone could hope for .. is still unable to say that she is plain and simple "happy". She hedges around that question all the time, which is why people remain in doubt about her. only time will tell if she can sustain her current amazing and wonderful personal status quo. she should keep more of it private. she is one hellova lucky girl!!

As long as those magazine writers aren't adding just a little bit of myth and spin, in their web of lies of every word that Nicole says ...

There sales go through the roof, because gullible "MAGAZINE MADONNA'S" hang out for their weekly trip between the pages of TRUTH OR FICTION ...

"she should keep more of it private. she is one hellova lucky girl!!"

And, she just got luckier, if you ask Keith's fans ... Apparently, Keith couldn't resist telling all and sundry in the American Country Music Industry, that his beautiful wife, "looked good in his shirt, AND, out of it"... Perhaps Keith shouldn't have mentioned such a private thing ...

DID HE REALLY SAY THAT AT ALL ??? BUT, if he did, SURELY HE DIDN'T MEAN WHAT HE SAID ???

Some think they have reading between lines and a psychic ability, down pat ... OR, is it that they have difficulty facing truth and fact ...

KEITH & NICOLE ARE ONLY HUMAN, AFTER ALL ...

"Some think they have reading between lines and a psychic ability, down pat " ...

no, Colleen, I am quoting Nicole's own words and not the 'spin' by the mags. I am not an idiot! Stick to the points I make!

and who are you insulting with this comment:
'gullible "MAGAZINE MADONNA'S"'?

can't you just state your point without insulting members all the time!!! have you learnt nothing from all of the 'flame wars' in the recent past??? It seems YOU are the one who is always stirring up ill-feeling between members in the forum. Incidentally, I don't buy the mags ... I don't need to as NKU scans them all and I can catch it all there, as no doubt all of us here do too!

I read about Keith's comment re 'shirt', but I have no comment to make on it ... stop stirring. Besides, it would be OFF-TOPIC.
