    Default Daddy Dearest?

    The tension between movie-star exes Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger erupted when an angry phone message from Baldwin to his daughter was made public.

    The recording was published Thursday by celebrity news site TMZ.com, which said the call was placed on April 11.

    On the recording, Baldwin can be heard admonishing his 11-year-old daughter, Ireland, "You are a rude, thoughtless little pig." (Watch for the rest of what Baldwin said during his rant )

    "You don't have the brains or the decency as a human being," he says, 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 goes on to say that he plans to fly from New York to Los Angeles "for the day just to straighten you out on this issue."

    Baldwin's spokesman said in a statement Thursday that, "in the best interest of the child," the 49-year-old actor "will do what the mother is pathologically incapable of doing ... keeping his mouth shut and obeying the court order.

    "The mother and her lawyer leaked this sealed material in violation of a court order," he 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 voice mail speaks for itself," Basinger's spokeswoman said.

    Calls to Basinger's and Baldwin's attorneys were not returned.

    Baldwin and Basinger, 53, were married in 1993. They have been involved in prolonged legal disputes over custody and other issues since she filed for divorce in 2001, which was granted in 2002. The couple's differences have been aired several times in public.

    Basinger was charged with contempt of court in October for violating terms of a 2004 custody agreement. A motion by her lawyers to dismiss the charges was denied Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. The next hearing on visitation issues is scheduled for May 4.

    TMZ is a part of the AOL network of Internet properties. AOL is a unit of Time Warner, as is CNN.



    Calling his 11 year old daughter a pig. Real nice.

    Baldwin has demonstrated repeatedly over the years that he is an asshole in public. This proves how big of an asshole he really is. Those of you with kids out there, did you find it as hard to listen to as I did? I can't imagine saying such things to my kids. Hopefully the judge does the right thing after the May 4th hearing and seriously cuts back (if not eliminate) his visitation rights. That little girl doesn't need that kind of influence in her life.

    Funny how Baldwin relentlessly rips on Bush, yet he can't even speak to a 12-year old...er, I mean 11-year old with kindness and compassion.

    So typical.

    There is no doubt that Alec Baldwin spoke badly to his daughter, but it needs to be pointed out that he and Kim Bassinger's divorce has been extremely bitter.
    How do you suppose TMZ got the message? The ex-wife of course.
    An issue that should have been settled between a parent and his child is now being broadcast all over the world, because KB wanted to take another swing....
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    Agreed. As bad as the call was, she had no right to release that to the public.

    It's sad to hear of a father using the telephone to express such sentiments to their child.

    When I was a kid Dad just had to come into the next room to tell us we were rude, thoughtless, and lacking in brains and decency.

    Yeah, publicizing it is dirty pool. Yeah, it's manipulative. It's exploitive. It's sensationalist.

    I don't give HALF A FUCK.

    The rough justice that motherfucker's getting is worth it all. What a punk little bitch-ass piece of shit for a father that cocksucker is.

    I'm not sayin' that's where anybody in this thread was goin', but I have HAD IT UP TO HERE with the "frustrated father" p o v. All this shit about how a bitter mother poisons her children against dear ol' daddy.

    I got news. Kids have brains. Oh, they want your approval and all, so they'll parrot what you say, often to a distressingly advanced age. But lemme tell some of those "frustrated fathers" out there something: maybe it ain't ALL about the venom Mommy's pouring into their little ears.

    Maybe the little chips can COME TO THEIR OWN CONCLUSIONS about the ol' block. Maybe it's at least partly about the fact that everybody hunkers down when you get home from the office, wondering what you're gonna yell about. Maybe it's just a wee little bit about the proud little slap-rashes you put on the li'l darlings' faces last week. And maybe it's just some infinitessimal, teensy-weensy little iota about the fact that you find NAME-CALLING and THREATS an acceptable way of communicating with your children.

    Many folks who've grown up under those conditions worry about repeating these patterns, and decide not to have kids as a result. The cash runs cold and free from my lips on that one.

    A kid whose own father can't get her age straight has "no decency", "no brains", and is a "rude, thoughtless little pig"?

    CASE CLOSED. Go fuck yourself in hell, Mr B.

    I disagree, if I were her, I'd want the world to know the REAL Baldwin, not the Hollywood Charlton. Baldwin, being a professional actor, can control his facial expressions, even can control the inflections of his voice, all to illicit a particular reaction from an observer.

    Here's proof positive the man is out of control.

    I love how Sean Hannity is eating this up. Baldwin makes fun of Sean for being a talentless construction worker. At least Hannity is a better father.

    Did it ever occur to anyone that by leaving a RECORDING everybody might hear what you have said. Kinda like making sure you have clean underwear when you leave the house. You might get in a car wreck and some hot nurse might be taking off your skibbies as they prep you for life saving surgery.

    What an asshole.

    I gotta say, they've been in the middle of an ugly divorce for a while now. Baldwin should know that court-order aside, you never leave a message like that on an answering machine. In fact, he should assume that all of his phone-calls are recorded, illegally or not.

    Even if this is on the Net for one day the damage to his image is done.

    He's a dumbass all the way around.
