Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban Updates 07/26/10

Good Causes: Nicole Kidman and Omega for UNIFEM
By Ricki Berger | Manhattan magazine | July 19, 2010

At a charity concert in Hong Kong where her hubby, Keith Urban, joined her onstage for an impromptu performance, Nicole Kidman and luxury watchmaker Omega debuted a limited-edition timepiece from Omega’s Constellation series and raised more than $175,000 for UNIFEM, the United Nations’ development fund for women.

Now the actress and Omega are taking their good intentions to NYC: Kidman autographed 30 boxes of Constellation watches for the Fifth Avenue boutique, with a portion of these sales again benefiting UNIFEM. There couldn’t be a better time for a splurge.

Farmers Classic Nets More Than $500,000 For Charity

More than 12,000 fans filled UCLA's Straus Stadium at the LA Tennis Center this weekend on the eve of the Farmers Classic, presented by Mercedes-Benz, for special events that raised more than $500,000 combined for charity.

On Friday night, Keith Urban and the Avett Brothers performed before a packed stadium as part of Starry Night to benefit the GRAMMY Foundation as well as the Southern California Tennis Association.

Tennis returned to Straus Stadium on Saturday, as another capacity crowd saw Andre Agassi defeat John McEnroe at Stars Under the Stars, presented by Grubb & Ellis, to benefit the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education.

"The most important thing from the past couple days is that we raised needed funds for some very worthy causes that really emphasize helping children," said tournament director Bob Kramer. "The entertainers and tennis legends who have performed at UCLA the past couple days wowed the crowd, and we look forward to the same as today's tennis stars take to the court for the start of the Farmers Classic, presented by Mercedes-Benz, on Monday."



From the Oh Heavenly Day blog

Living in Nashville typically means you’ll see celebrities every once and a while. This past week after we were finished doing a photoshoot with Jeremy Cowart, an incredible photographer, I made a comment along the lines of “I’ve lived in Nashville for 2 months now and haven’t seen anyone majorly famous.” (And was a little dissapointed that I hadn’t. Yes, we’ve worked with Lady A, etc. but seeing someone out being normal is a completely different experience. Good thing I didn’t knock on wood. That night Mary Catherine and I saw Charles Kelley of Lady A and his gorgeous wife at Station Inn. Then today was the big one. My family was in town and we decided to go to J. Alexander’s for dinner on their way to the airport. We walk in and there sits Phil Simms. (As a college football enthusiast I was embarassed that I didn’t know who he was and even MORE embarrassed that I didn’t know who his son was who was sitting in the booth next to him.) Yes, Chris Simms, quarterback for the Tennessee Titans, was sitting in the booth behind us. I love football. Except he played for UT. Secretly wanted to show off my Aggie Ring.

THEN… My dad says, “oh that’s keith urban.” What? Just casually mentions it and sure enough Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman were having dinner with their adorable daughter in the back of the restaurant. Not to mention when my family and I were saying bye in the parking lot they walked out and said hi as he got in their car. so sweet. ilovehim. she’s beautiful.

Keith's Aston

(didn’t know it was his until they came out and got in it!)

Note: Fans might remember Keith was spotted in Australia before his wedding test driving an Aston Martin :)
