I thought that maybe he actually said something nasty or evil to his kid, but I hadn't heard the clip yet. After having just listened to the clip, I realize I should have known better.


Maybe it was a slow news day.


I can tell you that was Hannity and if this involved anyone who wasn't a "Hollywood Liberal" he would have talking about how this kid is probably out of control.

Give me a break, it's not a slow news day. But the press is obviously all over this and they're so liberal I'm pretty surprised. Or should we get all up in arms that Wolf Blitzer isn't leading with an "Alec Baldwin's a horrible dad" story?


Actually, I did a google search on the two of them earlier because I was curious, and it was Colmes that I saw saying that.


I didn't even think Colmes was allowed to talk on that show. Most people watch it just so they can hate him. I was also unable to find the transcript, if you could provide a link.

You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. I've gotta use that one sometime. I hardly never answer my cell but I've never been called a rude, thoughtless little pig. Yeah, I think he overreacted a bit much.

Parent of the Year: Alec Baldwin

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Sat Apr 21, 2007 11:07 am

Unfortunately, Alec Baldwin can't claim he had the wrong number.

A voicemail recording was circulated online Thursday in which the 30 Rock star insults his 11-year-old daughter, Ireland, after the child purportedly missed her dad's scheduled phone call, in which he calls her a "rude, thoughtless pig."

"Once again, I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone. You have insulted me for the last time!" Baldwin said accusingly in the recording, reportedly made Apr. 11 and obtained by TMZ.

Baldwin added: "I don't give a damn that you're a 12-year-old or 11-year-old or a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn't care about what you do as far as I'm concerned...The crap you pull on me with this goddamn phone situation that you would never dream of doing to your mother, and you do it to me constantly over and over again!"

The Golden Globe winner then threatened/offered to fly from New York to Los Angeles "for the day just to straighten you out on the issue."

According to TMZ, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Maren Nelson, who has been presiding over the actor and ex-wife Kim Basinger's increasingly sordid custody battle, temporarily suspended Baldwin's visitation rights Wednesday after hearing the tape.

A source close to the actor told E! News that he "spoke to his daughter right after this happened and they have worked things out."

Baldwin, meanwhile, has opted to shut up for now.

"In the best interest of the child, Alec will do what the mother is pathologically incapable of doing...keeping his mouth shut and obeying the court order," a spokesman for Baldwin said in a statement, referring to Nelson's order to keep the details of the very estranged couple's custody battle under wraps.

"The mother and her lawyer leaked this sealed material in violation of a court order," the statement continued. "Although Alec acknowledges that he should have used different language in parenting his child, everyone who knows him privately knows what he has been put through for the past six years."

"The voicemail speaks for itself," said Annett Wolf, Basinger's spokeswoman.

Lawyers for the actors did not immediately comment.

Baldwin and Basinger's divorce became final in 2002, but they have been hammering out custody issues ever since. The story took an increasingly nasty turn in 2005 when both parents started attacking the other's mental fitness, with Baldwin saying Basinger had a "pathological need" to keep Ireland away from him and Basinger accusing Baldwin of being a bully who needed psychological evaluation.

Nelson ordered both actors to undergo counseling in June.

During Wednesday's closed-door hearing, Nelson also refused to grant Basinger's motion to dismiss a contempt of court charge for violating terms of the custody agreement last fall.

The L.A. Confidential Oscar winner pleaded not guilty to the dozen misdemeanor infractions on Oct. 4 and waived her right to attend her trial, when or if it ever takes place. The statute of limitations on the charges is August 2008. Basinger is facing up to 60 days in jail and a $12,000 fine if convicted on all counts.

The next hearing on visitation issues is scheduled for May 4.


Full Text:
Hey, I want to tell you something, OK? And I want to leave a message for you right now. 'Cause again, it's 10:30 here in New York on a Wednesday, and once again I've made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone to call you at a specific time. When the time comes for me to make the phone call, I stop whatever I'm doing and I go and I make that phone call. At 11 o'clock in the morning in New York and if you don't pick up the phone at 10 o'clock at night. And you don't even have the G**damn phone turned on. I want you to know something, OK?


I'm tired of playing this game with you. I'm leaving this message with you to tell you you have insulted me for the last time. You have insulted me. You don't have the brains or the decency as a human being. I don't give a damn that you're 12 years old, or 11 years old, or that you're a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn't care about what you do as far as I'm concerned. You have humiliated me for the last time with this phone.


And when I come out there next week, I'm going to fly out there for the day just to straighten you out on this issue. I'm going to let you know just how disappointed in you I am and how angry I am with you that you've done this to me again. You've made me feel like s**t and you've made me feel like a fool over and over and over again. And this crap you pull on me with this G**damn phone situation that you would never dream of doing to your mother and you do it to me constantly and over and over again. I am going to get on a plane and I am going to come out there for the day and I am going to straighten your ass out when I see you. Do you understand me? I'm going to really make sure you get it. Then I'm going to get on a plane and I'm going to turn around and come home. So you'd better be ready Friday the 20th to meet with me. So I'm going to let you know just how I feel about what a rude little pig you really are. You are a rude, thoughtless little pig, OK?

If your parents spoke this way to you, I'm terribly sorry. I mean, who's the real child here? He doesn't even know how old she is. And he's putting her in the middle of his issues with his ex-wife? Pathetic. As if kids don't have enough to worry about these days, we have pathetic parents who further burden them with their own problems.

It's a phone message, people say things they don't mean all the time. I don't see why this should get news time over the space center crisis or VT or heck, Africa, which news NEVER covers. My parents have said this type of things in the spur of moments more than once and apologized after ward. It's okay. And oh, I had to deal with my parents divorcing when I was 6 or 7(don't remember, don't want to remember) when I just start to know things but really don't understand.

I went through a divorce at a young age, too. I know they suck. You hear a lot of stuff as a child that you shouldn't have to hear. I really can empathize with you, but the reality is that what Baldwin said is not OK.

I NEVER said it was okay

what I said was it shouldn't be a big deal in the media and because this should be a privacy issue, the leaking of the tape(presumably by the mom) only hurts the child even more.

Quite true PWF, but I also believe that parents do this much more than we know, like yours for instance. Having an example like we have here of someone already in the limelight might bring some awareness to the issue.
