Life Is Always Where We Are

"The Good News is You're Fired" NBC News President Steve Capus


"Well, I'm going anyway. Let's talk about something important!" Ed Reif, former NYU classmate of Alec, and Starter for Team Baldwin!


The Alec Baldwin Spin Control-He Said. She Did.

Why be a good celebrity parent? There's nothing more boring than setting a good example--Alec's heated tirade voice mail, calling out his 11 year-old daughter, is called parenting. No Anger Management here. No rehab. No check up from the neck up. But no Father's Day card either. He regreted saying all of that . Is this enough to make him finally make good on his promise to leave the country? It should be, given that spending quality time with your children, if you are a divorced father in America , amounts to being a throwaway dad, where the mother often holds her kids for ransom. More than that, when an angry wife makes an accusation, it is assumed true, regardless of how outrageous and the Father's rights are taken away until he can prove himself innocent.

Alec's Own Private Durham. Put up your Dukes Kim!

What about Basinger? For making a private, within-the-family disagreement between a father and daughter into Mad TV, Anger as entertainment. Releasing a voice mail your ex-husband left for your kid in the middle of a custody battle---Wow that takes balls. Alec will never be the man his daughter's Mother is.

Let's face it, he didn't hijack a plane and he is no Imus. Alec is a butch version of Rosie O'Donnell, only funnier. No one should talk to their kids like that, but guess what, kids do the darndest things. 11 is the new 14, and middle school agers are (sometimes) manipulative and selfish brats. Had I known a judge would stop me from seeing my parents, I would have recorded everything they said and I could have grown up in a foster home. Check please.

NBC Today is Hamburger Helper- Puts Baldwin Through a 7 minute Meat Grinder.

How tabloid can NBC Today get? They violated Baldwin's family privacy, playing the entire seven-minute tape!Baldwin is on NBC's 30 Rock--the same network , who fired Imus for calling the Rutger's Basketball girls nappy ho's yet a few days later put the first Web 2.0 psycho killer on the nightly news. Those who can't kill teach...

Has NBC jumped the shark? Read Hotel Anyware's post on Psy-Cho TV.

My childhood would have been a lot more fun if Alec Baldwin were my dad, instead of my roommate at NYU---true story -Rubin Hall 35 Fifth Avenue back in 1980's- He still owes me $2.25 for the Chinese food! Anyway...

The steel cage celebrity custody battle between Team Kim and Team Alec continues. Reminds me of Glengarry Glenross' Blake---
You got leads. Mitch & Murray paid good money. Get their names to sell them. You can't close the leads you're given, you can't close shit, *you are* shit, hit the bricks pal, and beat it, 'cause you are going *out*. He's about as convincing in this Voice Mail:

  1. It doesn’t take a lot to make Alec Baldwin angry. All it takes is a missed phone call.

  2. If Don Imus deserved firing for what he said about the Rutgers' womens b-ball team, doesn't Alec Baldwin deserve to be fired from 30 Rock for calling his eleven year old child a "rude, thoughtless little pig"?
    Such vicious verbal abuse of one's pre-teen child strikes me as at least as bad as what Imus did, if not worse.

  3. It’s normal parenting for kids to be called ‘pigs’ by their father’s. In fact, Dr Spock recommends it, so I don’t know why everyone’s getting so freaked out that Alec Baldwin swore his daughter over the phone. It’s called tough love, people!

  4. Of course, the other big deal is that Baldwin is a public person and you're not. But shame on NBC, the network he works for, for throwing the stuff up on the Today show this morning.

    In this case, Steve Capus from NBC News really screwed up. This really isn't news, it's a family issue that should be resolved in private.

    hen is the judicial system going to wake up and do its job? We now have a cafeteria style legal system, wherein the authorities can pick and choose which laws they are going to enforce. I am appalled by what I’ve seen transpire in Family Court. The “mothers” do not have to follow any of the Court’s orders and even worse, are not being held accountable for their bad behavior. Women are allowed to abuse the process by making false allegations, without a shred of evidence to support the allegation, knowing that all you have to do is breath the word “abusive” in the courtroom and dad’s rights to his children are immediately taken away. You are now guilty until proven innocent, but good luck with that once you’ve been stigmatized as “abusive”. It’s a downhill battle from there, as you’ve now been falsely accused of being something that you’re not, conveniently at the same time your marriage happened to fall apart. Who wouldn’t lose their temper? There should be question as to the credibility of these women who claim to be “victims” when all the while they are the ones victimizing the men. Women are using their children as pawns in order to gain the upper hand in divorce proceedings and it all revolves around money. A father is ORDERED to pay support, but allowed to see his children??? The judges spout off about the best interests of the children, but since when has alienating a child from a parent in a child’s best interest? Lets see how women would react if somebody alienated one of their children from them. When you constantly push somebody’s buttons, you will eventually get a reaction. Our system is in dire need of an overhaul!

    As much as I didn’t care at first about this whole debacle, at the moment I would definitely love to have a reality TV show based on this family. Isn’t the real viewing entertainment after the breakup occurs ? Nick and Jessica were the Newlyweds, isn’t it time for a nice reality show about a child custody battle between two Hollywood stars ? They have to live in the same house until the custody battle is completed. Could it really get any better than that ? Maybe the finale is the child voting one of the parents out of the house ??

  7. I don't know. The level of froth didn't seem outside my childhood experience or the experiences of others I know. I heard on CNN that Baldwin's visitation rights were rescinded because of this tape. Come on, now. For calling her a pig?

    88% of America's children would be wards of the state if that were the standard of parental inadequacy.

    This is what we fiddle with while America burns.

    Double standard? Do we as a society hold men to a tough guy, football hero, and grid-iron standard of never allowing them to melt down under pressure, like women so often do? One certainty is that for the millions of average, non celebrity divorced fathers across the country facing similar painful struggles with their former spouses who are trying to incorporate their kids into their lives while they are expected to be the “big breadwinners”, rants like Baldwin’s are not uncommon. Are men actually allowed to experience helpless and angry feelings and yet never, ever breakdown under personal pressures? I’m not talking about hitting someone over the head with a baseball bat here, but of pure and regrettable, childish out of control verbal ranting?

    There aren't many parents of teens or pre-teens who have not gotten frustrated and flown off the handle with their child. If she can humiliate Alec that way, and air their dirty laundry out in public, don't you think she wouldn't treat others around her in the same manner. Keep your family secrets, secret or lets talk about healing your family secrets. Kim is as guilty as Alec.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Kids have too many parents who are negotiating with them and telling them to, instead of just telling them to “Shut up, and I’m going to straighten your ass out

  11. The feminist movement is worried about the fatherhood movement. The California National Organization for Women recently issued a 95-page report called Disorder in the Courts: Mothers and Their Allies Take on the Family Law System, in which they warn "the fathers' rights movement has been gaining strength and legitimacy. Fatherhood groups are well-funded, well-organized and publicly supported through conservative mouthpieces in the media." In the report, many prominent figures in the Feminist Family Law Movement (FFLM) call for a "mothers' rights movement" to block the rising fatherhood movement.
