Alec Baldwin Hospitalized, Released & Back To Work


Apparently Alec Baldwin was hospitalized last night. In a scene more reminiscent of The Hoff's house, Alec's 14 year old daughter Ireland called 911 last night after she and her dad got into a fight. The reason she called was that Alec was threatening to swallow a bottle of pills. Ireland did what any teenager would do when your parent says something like that. And by the way, which parents would say something like that? Anyway, Ireland called 911 and Alec was taken to the hospital. He was released shortly after arriving. His rep called it a misunderstanding. Uh huh. This morning though Alec was back at work on the set of 30 Rock. I don't understand why the parent would be threatening to take the pills. Isn't that something a teenager would say? I don't remember seeing that little bit in his parenting book. Maybe it will be in the audio book portion under extras or something.

Genesis said...

Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you've got;
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?

lulz

califblondy said...

I bet Kim is loving this.

Moriah said...

He's addicted to cocaine.

Tatum said...

I have a brother like him
Charming, funny, popular in the world
Saves the mean manic behavior for family
Poor girl

RocketQueen said...

lol @ Ryan.

If he were addicted to cocaine - he'd be a lot slimmer.

Oh, Alec. I like you so much as an actor...why you gotta be such a drama queen with your personal life?

jax said...

not necessarily,some people get coke bloat ie Greasy bear.lol..but he would be a hell of a lot angrier.

i'm tired of this Baldwin, can we swpa him for a Billy?

Elle Kaye said...

Leave Alec alone! He is working really hard at punishing his ex wife through his daughter. Not many parents put that much time and effort in with their kids today.

@Ryan -- How is your wife doing? I remember she had an accident but I must not have read any thread where you said if she was okay. I hope all is well.

jax said...

lol@Elle

penelope said...

I feel sorriest for Ireland as I don't think her mother is much better. Imagine having two out-of-control parents!

Melody the First said...

My mom used to pull that crap. It's part of Borderline Personality Disorder which Alec clearly is flirting with if not full-on married to.

not on my dollar said...

@Tatum, me too. :(

@Elle that was funny. Thanks for the laugh.

Ms Cool said...

ROTFL @ Elle Kaye

bj said...

some teens, out of control teens, are so hard, that they drive you to the brink of madness. You say things, think of doings on that brink. I know personally. but we are all in therapy. The question is, is Alex is arogant, Kim so delusional, are none of them are in therapy?

MadLyb said...

OMG, Alex Baldwin is my mom. She used to threaten to drive off a cliff whenever she got angry with us kids. Poor Ireland. This stuff will really mess with your kids minds in the long run.

Jess said...

Ok personal story: My mom did the exact same thing, she was drunk and she wanted to kill herself with pills and some cleaning products. It's surreal when you see your parent on the floor behaving like a 13 year old. I'm 20 and I've never been like that...so I can relate to her, it's a shame

Beth said...

I love him on 30 Rock but he is so messed up. He must be an absolute pill to deal with on a daily basis. I feel terrible for his daughter.

figgy said...

It's hard to believe this is the same person as the guy we see so in control on 30 Rock.

Moriah said...

@rocketqueen When you've done cocaine for sooooo long, you are no longer slim. You just need it to keep it going all day on your show after you've been gobbling pills to sleep at night! I know the routine all too well.

linnea said...

yeah, its weird how he has managed such a come back, despite his personal life... before i saw him on 30 rock i though i could never look at him without thinking about that voice mail, but then somehow i managed to forget about it.

now, i am not sure...

J said...

He has the weirdest relationship with his kid. It's like he gets Ireland skewed with Kim.

Wonder what drove him to threaten suicide with her present?

Children should not have the emotional responsibility that Alec & Kim place on her.

Sad.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I feel sorry for that kid. I would be pleasantly surprised to see her grow up into a normal, functioning person.

RocketQueen said...

Maybe Moriah, but I had an unhealthy relationship with cocaine for a few years, too, and I was slim as hell. I understand the temptation of starlets to use it to lose weight because it tempts me, too when I look in the mirror some days.

nancer said...

is there a 'healthy' relationship you can have with coke?

LOL.

aw, i love alec baldwin as an ACTOR. but i sure wouldn't want to be involved with him and i sure as hell wouldn't want to be his kid.

Krab said...

Why is it everyone believes the 14 year old's story?

Is it that credible that someone would actually OD on sleeping pills and be released from the hospital in one hour?

RocketQueen said...

@nancer - I dunno. I know some people who can do a bump here and there recreationally and only once in a blue moon without forming an addiction. I was not one of those people. When I stopped, the weight came on.

feraltart said...

I think everything with Ireland is emotionally fraught because of his having to fight to see her. I don't get to see my niece and nephew because of my brother's ex keeping them from my family, and the few times I have seen them I myself have been on the verge of tears because I never knew if I would see them again.

Any fight in a functioning family, you know it will blow over, but when your daughter has been kept from you, every fight is potentially the last time you will see them. Therapy can't undo hurts, you can only try and deal with things better. We are only human.

pomme said...

i believe he has big family/personal troubles .

mikey said...

When I was a teen, if I called 911 everytime my mother told me she was going to kill herself, the police could have made our house their new headquarters. Some parents play that sick headgame on their kids.

I am not blaming his daughter for his behavior but obviously she must have triggered it.

I remember when my son used to bite other children. What I had to do was figure out the trigger that caused him to bite. Then I would see to it that I never provoked his biting or when someone else triggered it, I would redirect his attention as quickly as possible to avoid the biting.

He was three at the time.

I think Alex should be treated the same way until he outgrows this phase in his development.

mikey said...

RM, he's the adult, she is the 17 year old. If he is anything like my mother, he is hanging over her head that he will kill himself if she does or doesn't do something - whatever it is. She called his bluff - good for her. It's sadistic for him to threaten her with something like that. She shouldn't live her life in fear of everything she says or does. She's been a pawn between the two of them long enough.

RM said...

Mikey, I was trying to be funny. Sorry, it didn't come across the way I wanted it to. :P

nancer said...

RM, it came across just fine. it made me chuckle.

mikey said...

RM, sorry I didn't get the humor in it. Too close to home, I guess. I can poke fun of him, I just feel sorry for her.

john said...

I've read various accounts of this story and in a weird version of celebrity telephone, I heard she wasn't at his apartment but that she and Kim called from a different place while he was asleep as 'revenge' for something. Who knows - he seems like a diva but I met him recently and he was really gracious. I found it hard to connect the dots between the phone rant and that guy...

Reese said...

Ireland isn't very attractive. Not Rumer Willis ugly, but nothing to look at. With the idiot parents she got, it would have been nice for her to at least be good looking.

Hope she managed to genetically dodge the Baldwin love of drugs/alcohol and her mother's mental problems. Poor kid.

RM said...

Yeah Mikey, it is a sad, sad situation. Sorry that it hits close to home.

Thanks Nancer. :)

mabel said...

Oh, I'm going to prayer for this sweetheart. Parents playing mind games of death and desertion like this are evil.

abigail7881 said...

What I had heard was that after talking to Ireland, he said he was going to take an ambien and go to sleep. Not sure where Kim was (I assume Ireland was with her), but Kim "advised" Ireland to call 911, probably to 'stick it' to her ex.
