NICOLE KIDMAN TALKS GETTING OVER TOM CRUISE, FINDING LOVE WITH KEITH URBAN

Nicole Kidman is opening up about love, life and her faith.

TOM CRUISE

Kidman, 51, who was married to Tom Cruise, 56, for a decade, tells Australian Women’s Weekly that she leaned on her friends, especially Hugh and Deborah Jackman, after their 2001 split.

The Big Little Lies star says: "When I got divorced, Hugh and Deb were so much a part of my healing. They were some of my best friends through that period."

Cruise and Kidman share two adopted children, Isabella, 26, and Connor, 24.

FAMILY NOW

Kidman married Keith Urban, 51, in 2006, and together, they share Sunday, 10, and Faith, 8. She says that these days, she values her family life above all else.

Kidman tells InStyle (she covers the June issue along with her Big Little Lies cast): "I love having my artistic path, and then my other passion is my family. That's probably all I need in my life. Other people are off doing things like having a girls' weekend. I don't have that because I go home. I want to be with my children and my husband."

She continues: "I'm an introvert, so my nature is very quiet, and I prefer being home. I'm deeply sensitive, so my ability to handle an enormous amount of exterior stress or toxicity … I know when I'm in the wrong place, and I go, and I leave. My home is very nourishing."

Kidman also shares the best advice she got from their family priest: "The greatest thing our family priest told us very early on in our marriage was, 'Always kiss hello and kiss goodbye.' It just keeps you connected."

JENELLE EVANS’ HUSBAND ADMITS TO ‘KILLING’ HER DOG

Just when you thought the drama on and behind-the-scenes at MTV's Teen Mom 2 couldn’t get any more dysfunctional, Jenelle Evans’ husband David Eason straight-up admitted to—and defended himself for—killing her dog Nugget.

On Wednesday, Eason, 30, posted an Instagram video of the French bulldog snapping at their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley.

"I dont give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face," he captioned the clip. "Whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont put up with that s—t at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me."

He also loaded an image of a red mark on his child’s cheek. He wrote, "You can hate me all you want but this isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME."

Evans, 27, posted her own tribute to Nugget. She wrote: "Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught."

Evans’ eldest son Jace, 9, was reportedly on a cruise with her mother Barbara during the incident, but her son Kaiser, 4, was with her. An insider tells Us Weekly that Evans is "scared and terrified" of her husband, whom she married in September 2017, and "doesn’t feel safe" with him anymore.

She tells Us Weekly that she is considering divorce, but hasn’t made any final decisions. "At this time, we are dealing with this rough situation. I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids," she said. "Divorce is in thoughts, but nothing is finalized."

TMZ reports that police won’t charge Eason unless Evans press charges. A rep tells TMZ officers won’t act on "sensationalized media reports or social media reports." The Columbus County Sheriff’s Department did say it contacted Animal Control about the situation.
