He should definitely NOT be able to visit with his child until he proves to the court that he will not speak to his daughter or "snap" again,...and his daughter has gone through some therapy to deal with this type of mental anguish/abuse from her father. No sooner.

Someone mentioned that he snapped and everyone does from time to time,...but this is no excuse!,...he should snap at his agent, his producer, his best friend,..whoever, but DO NOT snap at your daughter and speak to her like that. It's demeaning, demoralizing, and just plain ignorant. If he can do this (and I can just imagine how he spoke to his wife while married) then he is one disgusting person. He is the pig!!

poor little ms innocent kim basinger. alec is obviously at his wits end to unfortunately take his frustration out on his daughter, who is the real victim in this sad family affair. i do believe kim leaked th9is to the press, men ,especially in california courts are deemed as nothing more than a atm machine, and people wonder why so many kids grow up to be criminals! kim basinger is a phony and alec baldwin albeit a hot head i truly believe loves his daughter, i think kim better be very careful if she gets total custody, we might just see next on court tv the trial of alec baldwin.

If Kim DID leak this, it was probably a desperate attempt to protect a vulnerable CHILD! I wish someone had tried to protect me & my 3 siblings from OUR abusive father! NO ONE DID! Children can't protect themselves. WE, as adults, have to protect THEM! Children are at the MERCY of parents who wrongly believe they have the right to verbally & mentally abuse their kids, like they are their PROPERTY! They are NOT their property. They are individual human beings with rights and FEELINGS, just like adults. How would you feel if every day you went to work, your boss or co-worker screamed obscenities at you? Would you want to go to work? And how many of you would treat your boss or co-worker or friends that way? You wouldn't dream of it, would you? Well, children deserve the same respect you would show a stranger or your friends. Kids are people too! And all of you who think it's OK, have obviously never been ABUSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I AGREE WITH MS. TEE, THE COUNTRY IS TOO INVOLVED IN OTHER PEOPLES LIVES AT LEAST HE DID NOT CALL HIS DAUGHTER THE B-WORD OR ANT OTHER BAD NAME I AM WITH HIM. I SUPPORT YOU MR. BLADWIN . I TO AM A MOTHER OF 3 YOUNG MEN AND WITH BOYS ITS DIFFERENT. KIDS LEARN WORST THINGS OUT HERE THAN WHAT HE SAID TO HIS CHILD. SO BACK UP OFF THIS MAN, AND LOOK IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD WE ARE NOT PERFECT BY NO MEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Read the book, "Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me Anymore" for a hilarious send-up about Kim Basinger. The author really tears her a new one (and he should). Alec Baldwin wrote the author and thanked him, saying he, "Really liked the book". Duh!

I'm quite certain Mr. Baldwin was frustrated. I can hear it in his voice. The issue, however, is that he is 49 years old. His daughter is 11 (or 12) - apparently he is uncertain. Whichever - the point is that he lost control. The very sad result is that his daughter was publicly humiliated. I doubt he ever thought anyone outside of Ireland and Kim would hear this but regardless - he has not only damaged his daughter's heart but also her ego by everyone hearing that her father would speak to her thusly. If he was that angry, he never should have left a message. He should have used his acting skills, got on the plane the next day as intended, and sat down and rationally spoken to her and her mother about the lack of communication. Both he and his former wife need to attend classes on parenting. The former to learn how to manage the anger he has toward his ex, the latter to learn how not to use the child in manipulation. It's all very sad indeed. I wish them all well, particularly the little girl.

I do not like the "friendly person" who wanted to protect Ireland. Someone would read between lines that his message has not much to do with Ireland. Her mother should encouraged relationship betwen father and daughter as custodial parent must do.I know how it feels to wait for the phone call from a child to hear her/his voice. I am walking in his shoes last 3 years. I sympathize with his pain.

For all that have said that Kim shouldnt have made this public, ha! What a croc! Of course outing the wacko is the only way...he has had her in and out of court for years and plays his 'family and actors' card as if its his authority, He is just a wanker and should not be allowed any further contact.

Good luck Kim in getttin on with your life with Ireland without this idiot upsetting you guys further :)

Alec, feel free to play out a movie like scene in your own space and shoot yourself karput or something to put everyone out of their misery, including away from your crap acting!!

Baldwin was seen talking to that child the same way he did on
that tape, and threatening her. I am astonished that people
actually say that isn't him on the tape, as he insults and
threatens his child. That is ridiculous. Everybody knows it
is Baldwin, and he has never denied it. He just blames other
people for his own actions.

Also, I am amazed that people blame Kim for the tape. That is
absurd. She didn't make that tape, Baldwin did. I heard it was
released from judicial chambers where it was given to a judge
in a request for protection of the child.

Baldwin got himself on talk shows so he could cover up and
blame others for his own actions. My guess is that Kim and the
child have been through dangerous and stressful times with
an abuser like Baldwin. He has been known for his violence
and his temper in the past, and he is obviously also a very bad
father and an abusive husband.

I do not blame Kim for attempting to protect her child from someone
who makes threats of violence and who insults and
belittles Ireland. I saw him get up on a night show and ridicule her by
dancing on national TV, mimicking her. He is a cad and a monster
who won't take responsibility for his own actions.

Kim is right to protect her child. I am sure the child doesn't want to
answer the phone when a jerk like Baldwin calls, father or no father,
and Kim can't be blamed for THAT! Ireland is only an eleven year
old child, but she WILL grow up, and I would imagine that her father
will NEVER see her then, because he can't force her to see an
abusive, cruel, vindictive father who insults and threatens her.
She will not forget, she knows who the good parent is, and it is
Kim. I am still concerned about a father who said he "strokes
her hair in the morning to wake her up", which sounded quite odd,
since he oversteps the boundaries with his insults and threats.
He is obviously a total control freak who is mean spirited and
violent. Just because that one conversation was taped doesn't
mean that is the ONLY time he talked to the child like that, because
he was heard before in person, and that is probably the way he is
all the time! Only an idiot would think that tape was the ONLY example
of his abuse.

Come on, people. To hear all the hype, I was expecting something entirely different. Yes, there are parts of the message where Alec went too far. The name-calling was inappropriate, but in order to call the guy abusive, it would have to be a pattern of doing this. This was a guy calling his daughter on a scheduled phone call (in other words, she knew to be at the phone for this) and scolding her for not doing what she was supposed to do. Anyone who has children or who works with children knows that there are times when they get too frustrated and say things they shouldn't--especially when a child is continually noncompliant.

Regarding "threats," there are no real threats here. He simply says when he visits he is going to "straighten your ass out on this issue." In listening to this, he is talking about discussing this and having a parental talk with her. The fact that he cussed (which was inappropriate imho) using the word "ass" I'm guessing some of you are thinking he's threatening to spank her.

Bottom line, people are too quick to judge.
