(Smart) Alec Baldwin Rushed to hospital, blames ex-wife, Kim, for making it a "media circus"
N/.Y. Daily News ^ | 2.11.10 | By Jonathan Lemire, George Rush and Corky Siemaszko

Posted on 02/11/2010 11:24:05 AM PST by meandog

Emmy-winning actor Alec Baldwin's defenders blamed his ex, Kim Basinger, for ramping up the drama after an early morning 911 call by his daughter resulted in the "30 Rock" star being rushed to a Manhattan hospital.

"This is another example of Kim's sickness," a buddy of Baldwin's told The Daily News. "Alec came back from the hospital and there were cameras outside his house at 2 a.m. Gee, I wonder how they found out?"

Basinger, the buddy said, is jealous that Baldwin is co-hosting the Academy Awards next month and is using their daughter, Ireland, to rain on his parade.

"She's not not going to let that go by," the pal said.

There was no immediate response from Basinger's side, but her divorce from Baldwin has been a Hollywood horror show from the start and left their daughter torn between two parents who appear to hate each other.

Baldwin was transported by a Lenox Hill Hospital ambulance crew to the hospital at 12:55 a.m. after 14-year-old Ireland told a dispatcher he was "unresponsive," sources said.

Far-left liberal threatens suicide, takes pills; then daughter finds him unresponsive, calls 9-1-1, AND IT IS HIS EX-WIFE’S FAULT? Go figure...

When did he get back from Paris? Last I heard about him, he was moving to France after George Bush got elected.

Gee, I wonder if Alec ever thought that maybe someone monitoring the 911 calls with a scanner tipped off the reporters?

Far-left lunatic has row with 14-year-old daughter, threatens suicide, takes pills; daughter finds him unresponsive so calls 9-1-1 and, somehow, it is his ex-wife’s fault? Go figure!

He’s already been exposed in the past for berating his daughter. He wasn’t going to get hit by the media for doing it again.

He and Kim seem to have a horrid relationship filled with viciousness. Their daughter is constantly caught in the middle; I’m sure she’ll end up in some really healthy relationships thanks to mom and dad.

I really can’t imagine that she would care enough to call up some media at 2 a.m. to “spill the beans” about him being in the hospital. Did he ever consider that perhaps the 911 responder, hospital personnel or even a random person in the hospital called in the info?

By the way, Alec, no one watches or cares about the Academy Awards anymore.

It sounds like Alec isn’t very stable, but we all knew that already.

Same for his ex-wife.

Baldwin is a nut but his ex is way way nuttier. He was a good actor and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he winds up conservative before all is said and done. He has one brother I know for a fact is working on him.
Hope Alec recovers soon...prayers for the family.

First I’ve heard of this, but my money would be on “passed out drunk” rather than OD. Alec has that bloated look of a hard drinker these days.

I hate the guy’s politics, but I have to admit I love him in 30 Rock.

Clear case of both parent’s being at fault.

And, it takes as much heart to hate as it does to love. They ain’t over each other !

Just heard on Fox that he was “responsive” and agreed to go to the hospital. Didn’t stay long. So I doubt he was *that* drunk.

Wish I could remember where I heard that. I've been trying to google it, but no luck. Might have just been one of the gossipy blurbs somewhere on the tube while channel surfing, but I remember my wife & I shaking our heads in disbelief.

Yes agreed. When remembering John Donne, who has said "When the bell tolls it tolls for thee" or near enough to it, I think on the sadness of people who appear to "have every thing".

I know Baldwin has a knack of absolutely turning people off and deserves some inner turmoil. Still, surely there is room for a recovered silly liberal in the conservative ranks.

Such a person then goes after liberals twice as much as most conservatives. Lastly, I hate to see a family destroyed. (sermon over).

Is the daughter the one he called all those nasty names a few years ago? If so, he’s lucky she knew her duty was to call 911 immediately and then begin CPR rather than vice versa.

Well I know he does that "Essentials" thing on Sunday evening, but that's tolerable. If he does every movie, I just may have to shut my eyes and mute the TV when he's on.........like I do with Obama. :)

I like the info in those little before and after the movie talks Osborne gives though, so I'll be very disappointed if Alec takes his place.

There must be someone else!

If you ever find out for sure, and think about it, let me know so I can prepare myself, OK?

I used to work for Kim’s dad many years ago when he owned some finance co. (don’t know if he is still alive), but he and Kim are both weird. I did like her sister Barbra. She seemed normal.

Well I don’t know about all this, but, a wife, an ex, or even a roommate can really screw you over in ways a stranger never could. I mean this in terms employment sabotage, social sabotage, and even trouble with the police. I have seen all of these.
I’ve seen wives kick their man out the house, knowing that he had been drinking, and then call and report him for DUI. Of course this costs the whole family thousands, but women don’t seem to care when they get mad. They’ll do anything.

And yes, I have seen people call paramedics on a sleeping person for revenge.

This is especially effective in the military because as soon as those lights roll, it is a Serious Incident, and will be tracked at all levels.

I’m not taking one side or the other. I’m only saying that I have seen what Alec is saying done by people just because they want to screw someone over. Its actually pretty common.

It’s Alec Baldwin. It’s not like Kim would even HAVE to call the media. Someone from the paramedics or hospital probably spilled the beans.

My take on all this is that Baldwin still loves Kim Basinger and has never gotten over her. But she won’t have anything to do with him and he’s an angry, hateful, SOB. Not that he wasn’t an angry, hateful, SOB even before they were married. But he was scorned by a woman!!!
