Alec Baldwin Makes Shocking Sacrifice for Wife & Baby


alec baldwinAlec Baldwin has HAD IT, do you hear me? HAD IT with the paparazzi constantly stalking his wife and child. Baldwin got into trouble this weekend when a photographer claimed he called him a "c--ksucking f--." Baldwin admits to the first name but says he did not use the second. In response, MSNBC suspended Baldwin's show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin. In true Alec fashion, he apologized for verbally attacking the photog... but then Baldwin wrote up a scathing rant on Huffington Post denouncing the media for baiting him and harassing his wife and daughters.

"If quitting the television business, the movie business, the theater, any component of entertainment, is necessary in order to bring safety and peace to my family, then that is an easy choice," wrote. Would he really do it? Who knows -- I get the feeling it's probably something he's been considering for a while. But then, can a life outside of entertainment really contain his out-sized personality?

To tell you the truth, even though he sounds paranoid, I kind of think he's right. It does seem like there's some sick kind of game going on with the paparazzi and Baldwin, like they're on assignment to make news by provoking him into bad behavior. And it's getting old. Someday we'll all get tired of their poke-the-bear routine. No, you know what? We're already tired of it. Time to move on and get over your grudge match, guys.

Do you think Alec Baldwin is being deliberately provoked just for the stories?

It seems that there is a segment of "media" that makes a habit of pestering the celebrities so they can cry about how rude the celebrities are.

I think by nature Baldwin is a hothead and that segment of the media knows that.  So they try and provoke that response, and get it.  Like a neverending cycle, they poke him because he responds that way; he responds that way because they poke.  

I think CNN's 2 week suspension is kinda funny, because, really, do they think he'll stop because of CNN?

He seems to have anger management issues. I hope he doesn't speak to this baby the way he did his older daughter.

So the guy attacked his other daughter but defends this one..nice logic, bout this:he is a racist homophobe?  yea,that works...but bringing out his gay hair dresser is pretty funny and lying bout saying anything when its on tape is even funnier and of course the question is asked:would miss velez be so quick to defend someone on the right?..we know the answer!!

I really hope he follows through. And he could have Mel Gibson join him.

I'm sure he is quitting the biz just like he quit twitter... over and over again.

Thank you Elaine.  For some crazy reason every time this man has a melt down, he is throwing out homophobic words yet because he's a "liberal" he always get a pass.  This man is an ass and I wish he would just disappear from the public eye.

Alec Baldwin is a hothead who is already two presidential terms past when he promised us all he'd leave the country if Bush got elected. I think we should hold him to that and send him packing. Then he can verbally abuse people in another country.
