Kim Basinger has been dogged by press and paparazzi since TMZ posted her ex-husband's barking voice mail, and perhaps that's why she had to uncollar from a committment to a pooch charity event.
Kim was scheduled to host the 6th Annual "Nuts For Mutts" Dog Show and Pet Fair near Los Angeles this past weekend, but was a no-show. Grr.
The event still had some star support minus Kim -- some good 'ol "Idol" castoffs! Sabrina Sloan and Alaina Alexander were both on hand to provide some leggy love for their four-legged pals. Woof.
Kim's reps were not available for comment.
