Actor Alec Baldwin’s private cell phone message to his 11-year old daughter Ireland was made public today despite repeateded attempts by the Baldwin camp to keep the actor & his ex-wife Kim Basinger’s stormy child-custody case private.  Most media (link and link) are focusing on the less-than-stellar parenting style Mr. Baldwin displays by stating at the end of the recording, “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig.”   He also states earlier “You don’t have the brains or the decency as a human being,” apparently upset that she did not answer her phone for a planned call.  “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.”  He then states that he plans to fly from New York to Los Angeles “for the day just to straighten you out on this issue.”

Listening to the actor it is clear that Mr. Baldwin is extremely hurt, angry and at his wit’s end.  He states that this is the last in a string of occasions where he has “made a *&* of myself trying to get to a phone to call you at a specific” to get to the phone to call his daughter at a specific time only to find “you don’t even have the *&* phone turned on.”   He says “You’ve made me feel like *(&*( and a fool over and over and over again….You wouldn’t even dream of pulling this with your mother but you do this to me over and over and over again.”

The Baldwin camp is keeping mum on this as has been their m.o., with the Basinger camp going into full swing “The recording speaks for itself.” (including leaking the recording in the first place)  As a woman, I’m usually inclined toward the female in the fight but I have to admit that this is yet another instance where Ms. Basinger has really showed her true colors and my sympathies go out toward Mr. Baldwin.  I’m sure that Mr. Baldwin deeply regrets losing his cool and insulting his daughter; but at least he made it clear that he was doing it out of feeling “hurt and humiliated” by his repeated attempts to call her at the appointed time only to meet with an 11 yr. old’s voicemail.  I couldn’t help after listening to the entire recording to feel sorry for him and sympathetic.  As a parent I know only to well how children have the ability to really stick it to you where it hurts.

Ms. Basinger has no excuse.  In an attempt to hurt and attack her husband through the media she obviously didn’t care how motifying it would be for her pre-teen daughter to have everyone in the world, including all the preteens in the world who aren’t known for their kindness, to have this juicy information.  How nice it will be in the coming weeks for Ireland to go to school and hear bullies and reporters asking her how she liked being called a “little pig”.  Great job, Mom!
