Alec Baldwin Roasted By Daughter About That Infamous ‘Pig’ Voicemail
“I’m here to roast this big old ham I call my father” announced Ireland Baldwin! Time heals all wounds, especially those inflicted by calling your daughter a “rude little pig” in a voicemail heard ’round the world.
Alec Baldwin and daughter Ireland Baldwin have moved on since the message was leaked during the actor’s contentious divorce from Kim Basinger, but that doesn’t mean the 21-year-old model won’t play that card when she wants to. Lol! At a tribute event for the “30 Rock” actor put on by Spike TV, where famous types including Bill Clinton, Julianne Moore and Robert DeNiro raked Baldwin over the proverbial coals. Ireland also took the stage to deliver some of the best digs of the night. “Hello, my name is Ireland, and I’m a Baldwin. Yes, I’m a member of that family. The Baldwins,” the model told the crowd. “I see other recovering Baldwins here. Some cousins, uncles. I’m here to roast this big old ham I call my father. Speaking of pigs, some of you may remember me as that ‘thoughtless little pig’ you read about. That was a decade ago and my dad and I are in a much better place now. He would never say something like that. Because I’m 6’2″ and I would kick his ass.”
“The truth is, that whole awful period nearly killed him emotionally. I wouldn’t see my dad that upset ever again, until I showed him my first tattoo. Okay, my second tattoo. I couldn’t show him where I got the first one.”
At this point, Baldwin reportedly began throwing food at his daughter in jest. “I know you’ve heard this and time again, but I really am proud to be your daughter and I’m so happy to be here tonight,” she said. “And I absolutely love and adore you.” Alec Baldwin opened up earlier this year about how the voicemail caused “permanent” damage to his relationship with his daughter and his own self-worth in the decade following the leak. At one point, the public scrutiny was so intense, he even contemplated suicide. “There are people who admonish me or attack me and use that as a constant spearhead to do that,” he explained on “Good Morning America” in April. “It’s a scab that never heals ’cause it’s being picked at all the time by other people.”
It Sounds As Though Alec and Ireland Baldwin Have Both “Grown Up” And Put The Past Behind
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
It is true that time does heal all wounds but only if that includes the forgiveness of self and others over the incident. It was a very bad time in Alec Baldwin’s life as he was also dealing with alcohol abuse and who knows the real story behind the incident that pushed him to say the things he did to his then very young daughter.
Two of Swords: Inverted (Upside Down)
This card is being at a stalemate and not knowing how to solve it. I believe this is where Baldwin was when the incident happened but since the card was pulled inverted, he and his daughter have obviously turned that energy around.
Nine of Cups: Inverted
This is a card of wishes and contentment. Since pulled inverted, I feel the incident did to Baldwin as he said it did, emotionally almost did him in and all he really wanted was a relationship with his daughter and was not getting it at the time. Divorces do get nasty like that!
This is a card of manifesting the future and also creating smoke and mirrors of the truth. I believe this card shows as I stated above that no one knows what the real facts are that led him to make those statements and then have them publicly put on display for his humiliation. He paid a high price for that emotional weak moment with his daughter but to both their credit, they have moved on.
