kimcut_basinger_00.jpgKim Basinger may have crossed the line here. She’s hired around the clock BODYGUARDS to protect her 11 year old daughter Ireland from her angry father Alec Baldwin. Baldwin has apologized both publicly and privately to his daughter for his voicemail tirade in which he called her a “thoughtless little pig.” Alec is in New York and cannot see his daughter at least until a May 4 court date. Apparently all that negative publicity wasn’t enough to satisfy Kim, she had to rub salt in the wound by hiring bodyguards to “protect” her daughter. We wonder – will she send the bill to Alec?

    They are BOTH ruining her life. They are so eager to hurt each other that they treat their daughter like property to fight over. Alec expects a prize because he apologized for flipping out and Kim is upping the drama with the conspicuous bodyguard. Losers! I feel sorry for their daughter, if she is a brat there is little wonder why! I wonder what nonsense Alec and Kim have pulled that we HAVEN’T heard about yet?

    I think she hired the body guards due to all the new media attention this is generating. for some reason this became a super hot story and we already know what a circus the paps made of this story like any other. gotta love the paps, they keep me in the know. 🙂

    I don’t think she hired them to protect her from Alec.
    I think it’s more to protect her from the photdogs now that they will be mercilessly
    hounding her.

    for all you know, Basinger could have had bodyguards for herself and her daughter for awhile.
    going too far is exactly how I would describe that hateful message Baldwin left for his ONLY CHILD.
    Ps. It’s true, Basinger dresses schlumpy in her real life.

    There have been stories for many years of Kim Basinger being mentally ill and deeply disturbed. She is probably doing as much damage to her with her paranoia and neurosis as Alec did with the verbal abuse. This poor girl should live with someone other than her parents

    janet, with all due respect, i think you’re dead wrong here.
    while none of us knows what exactly transpired between alec baldwin and kim basinger, one thing is for sure: no parent should *ever* talk to their children like alec talked to ireland on that voicemail.
    speaking as someone who grew up psychologically abused by her father, i can say that voicemail rung some serious bells with me. that was the voice of a control freak, an abuser.
    kim may not be entirely innocent, but the voicemail spoke for itself.

    I don’t excuse Alec for what he said to his daughter. There really is no good excuse for that. What an awful, awful thing to say to call anyone especially your 11 year old daughter. But, I do believe him when he says he felt like he was driven to that point. This divorce has been so nasty and I agree with earlier posters, they are both guilty of using their daughter against one another. As a child of divorce myself, I’ve seen it first hand and I know how one parent can influence a child against the other parent intentionally or not. In my opinion, if Kim really cared about the welfare of her daughter, she would never have let her be exposed this way. And as for Ireland, she should show her father some measure of respect and answer the phone when she’s suppose to. He sure isn’t going to win any Daddy of the Year Award but it sounds like he’s at least trying to fulfill his obligation to her as her father. At least as well as he is capable and that should count for something. As for Alec, I hope for all involved that he isn’t intentionally abusive but just a frustrated parent pushed to a breaking point. Hopefully, he will head back to anger management counseling. God help them all. What a sad story this is.

    I totally agree with anonymous 9:34pm. Both Alec and Kim need some serious professional help fast. I think that Alec spoke like that out of anger and frustration. Here he is trying to be a dad that wants to see his kid and that lunatic Basinger doesn’t think twice about using her kid to push his buttons. Now, if he didn’t try to see his kid, she would still put their biz out there and try to make him seem like an asshole. She will never be happy!!! My mother tried the same thing with me, to turn me against my dad. It didn’t work and now she and I don’t speak because of all the hurtful things she said and did to try to keep me from my father. It will be interesting to see how this kid turns out.

    I am sure Ireland has heard his anger before and it probably does not phase her as much as others – I have always gotten the impression he really loves his daughter and like most quick tempered people, his bark is worse than his bite. The real culprit is the one who released it. Now she had to not only hear her father’s anger/frustration but now her peers (and the rest of the world) witnessed it. Kim has always seemed a little “off” to me.

    Alec Baldwin should be in jail. What’s next? Is he going to kill his daughter, if he can’t control his vicious temper. Go Kim. Hire bodyguards! Alec is CRAZY

    Doesn’t anybody get it? Kim Basinger pushed Alec Baldwin over the edge. She manipulated this event, and Alec fell right into her trap. This poor daughter has been pulled back and forth most of her life. Can you imagine the teasing she’s getting at school right now? Even though Kim thinks she won this round, she didn’t–she harmed her child. So sad.

    Gee, Janet. What do you have against Kim? She hired the bodyguard for Ireland because of the onslaught of media, not just because Alec may flip out and try to straighten Ireland out.

    I think both of the parents need to be forced to attend counseling together, or face losing their child. Alex needs some anger managemnt classes, as well. These people are destroying their daughter for their own selfish, personal vendetta. The only one who will suffer in the long run is Ireland. Growing up is hard enough. A kid shouldn’t have to put up with this crap from their idiot parents.

    Kim might be a nutcase herself for all we know, but I still think it’s smart that she released that tape. We often hear of men who abuse women in private but who are extremely popular and charming to the public, who then don’t believe that they could hurt anyone and then they turn on the accuser. Now, with this tape, Kim has proven that Alec is a verbal abuser..and studies have shown that that can escalate. I remember reading years ago about a red-faced Alex reaming out Kim at the top of his lungs in the Hamptons somewhere. Yikes. That seems totally true to me now.

    Has it occurred to anyone that Baldwin’s outburst might not have been a one time happenstance?
    If, indeed, this is a pattern of behavior for him, Kim should be applauded for taking whatever steps necessary to protect her daughter from such an immature, egocentric bully.

    Alec has damaged his relationship forever with this child. He has a bad temper and everyone knows it, he’s needs help. I bet if Kim put this out there it was a plea for SOMEONE or anyone to listen to her and know he is out of control.

    Let’s face it; Baldwin is a drunk. Listen to the recording again, and you’ll hear the slurred speech. Observe his bloated appearance, and it’s probably Scotch that’s doing the job on his once good looks. He’s also a narcisscist, judging from his irrational rants on any subject you’d care to name. Put the two together, a drunk narcisscist, and let’s hope Kim gets sole custody with NO visitation rights.

    Boy Howdy does she looks like heck – I mean Kim. Come on lady if you going out in public look like somebody, not a has been celebrity.
    I think the guards are a good idea. But I would have thought by now she would of invested in a good security system. Motion detectors, video thermal imaging like they have at airports now days.
    Wonder if she’s ever thought about getting a few pit bulls.

    Alec would be wise to put her up for adoption. Just totally write off the daughter as she’s going to be so brain washed by her mother.
    I mean seriously folks.
    If I was Kim I’d get one of those GPS bracelets and attach it to her daughter so that she knows exactly where she is at – at all times.

    Hey, that Tina Fey wonder when she’s going to get some new glasses and get a make over. I wish she’d get that Shakira look hair wise, now that’s a HOT LOOK!
    Hmm.. Maybe they can bring Shakira on the show and really rev up the ratings.

    You know, his daughter doesn’t look like a pig now, but I guarantee you when she gets old she’ll take on her fathers appearance and really will fill out.
    All Kim sees is a thin little girl, but wonder what Alec looked like when he was that age, wonder if Kim ever thought about looking at some of Alec’s pictures of him during his youth.

    Kim Bassinger is a mean spirited witch woman who enjoys tremdously torturing her x-husband. And, he should have handled that phone scolding in a different manner and he would have saved himself a lot of grief. He didn’t use his brains and should have used ‘tact’ instead!!!!

    For all the people who believe what Kim did was great. I feel sorry for you, no way should a mom expose her child’s heartache for the world to see.
    It’s not right and what Kim did was to hurt Alec and what it will do is harm Ireland instead.
    The court had heard the tape and acted on it, there was nothing else to do…now she let the world see their craziness and I think this will backfired on Kim Bassinger “big time.”
    Now the judge knows that this is in the public and their job is “what is best for the child” not the what is best for the adults.

    I’m usually quick to be on the side of the woman, but Kim seems really jacked-up in the head to me. And their kid does look a bit bratty. We don’t know everything going on behind the scenes. Women can be nuts too.

    Alec is wrong, but Kim is worst for releasing the tape. She denied that she released, but shouldnt she have put out a statement about her disgust at it being released and getting to the bottom of who release it to embarrase her daughter. Alec’s behavior is no surprise to no need for alarm. What I find alarming is her reaction to his behavior on the tape and not the hurtful release of the tape

    I was really surprised at NBC’s support for AB. It seems you can slur gays and african-americans and all hell breaks loose. But if you emotionally abuse a child, no one pays any attention. His beef is with his ex-wife, not his child, and did you notice that he never once said anything along the lines of “I love you”?
    I guess children really don’t have a voice when it comes to protecting themselves.

    I have a hard time believing that Kim did not release that tape. It was sent to a private cell phone or home phone. It had to be either her or her lawyer with permission from her.

    She is so mean. I really didn’t care for either one but
    now I feel bad for Alec and his ongoing struggle to see his daughter. She’s ignored the court orders…nothing
    like a woman scorned. SHe needs to grow up and leave her
    bitter ways behind her.

After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
