She says, "I hated being so tall, at 5 ft 11 in.   I had reached 5 ft 10 in. at just 13.  It made me feel very self- conscious."   Her nickname was "Storky", with every boy about 5 ft. 2 in.   Her mother tried to encourage the teenage Nicole by saying men like tall women.  Nicole says, "I would say, 'I am not interested in men - I am interested in BOYS!'  Well, now, Nicole is interested in men....one in particular, the sexy Keith Urban.  She and Keith are both active charity fundraisers.
