Star: Alec Baldwin is only ragey because of Hilaria & Ireland, of course

Alec Baldwin

This is such an infuriating story that I had to cover it just to remind us all how awful the tabloids can be sometimes when they don’t have any real stories to break. Presumably, the essence of this story was born last month when Alec Baldwin launched into his most recent public tantrum, in which he threatened to f— up a journo and spewed a bunch of gay slurs before quitting Twitter and whining that he wants to quit acting too.

Now Star is making excuses for Alec by deciding that he simply cannot be ragey because he possesses, you know, actual anger issues that could use serious therapy. Nope. Instead, they’ve concocted a little tale that claims Alec has been driven to the edge because of two women — his daughter Ireland (a.k.a., the thoughtless little pig) and wife Hilaria — and their complete inability to get along with each other. Poor, poor Alec:

Hilaria Baldwin

Ireland Baldwin

It’s no wonder Alec Baldwin can’t keep a lid on his tember — his pregnant wife, Hilaria, and his 17-year-old daughter, Ireland, are at each other’s throats! “Ireland and Hilaria fight and bicker constantly,” explains a source close to the “30 Rick” star. “Ireland resents all the attention Alec lavishes on Hilaria and said she doubts he was this excited before her own birth!” But Ireland’s guilt trip didn’t work on the prickly actor. Alec can’t sand her puty behavior and refuses to coddle his daughter. “It’s the classic stepmonster dilemma,” says the spy. “Relations are bad now and are probably going to get worse once Hilaria gives birth.”

[From Star, print edition, July 22, 2013]

Sigh. This story can be easily disproven by statements that Ireland herself made last year (while she was also making excuses for “frustrated” Alec) when she said, “Hilaria and I are really close. She’s like a big sister to me, but I feel like I haven’t spent enough time with her yet. We joke around, and I call her ‘Mom.’” Mostly, Star has printed a load of crap in the hopes that the vision of Ireland and Hilaria mudwrestling will sell come copy.

Here are some photos of Hilaria and Ireland chatting together in June 2012. They look pretty friendly, right?

    Is Alec blind to the fact that his wife is a famewhore? She went from yoga instructor to talking head on a gossip show

  2. Elisabeth says:

    in other news…my brother and his wife are having a baby girl in September and they are naming her Ireland

  3. lisa says:

    ireland is too busy with her boyfriend to fight with famewhoria that much of the time

    also, as a serial fighter, i bet alec is comfortable with conflict

  4. emmie_a says:

    No doubt Alec has major anger issues… but how do you know that Hilaria and Ireland STILL get along? Ireland made those statements right around the time Hilaria and Alec got married… things could have changed, especially with her pregnancy. IMO Hilaria looks and acts like an entitled, gold digging b*itch. Not that this gives Alec any excuse for his rage.

  5. Ann says:

    Alec is a menopausal bitch – his rage issues are amplified by his hormone fluctuations. He probably also realized that a much younger women married him only as a stepping stone to fame (SHOCK!! SURPRISE!!).

    • Meredith says:

      I love Ireland’s comment that Hilaria (cannot get over that name) is “like a big sister”. Because they’re so close in age, right? Yeah, Alec got played big time. And for that alone, I am Team Hilaria(ous)!

    • CC says:

      OMG it wasn’t his gorgeous, youthful looks and great personality? My world is crumbling…

  6. Liberty says:

    “They look pretty friendly, right?”

    Uh, no. Hilaria looks extra try-hard fake for the cameras. Ireland looks over it (or something) x1000.

    Of course, this is only one photographed moment in time.

  7. Jess says:

    I would not be surprised at all if Hillary and Ireland are fighting. Ireland has lived almost her whole life with Alec and Kim Basinger fighting. Those two were still going at it 15 years after their divorce. It will be no different once Hillary and Alec divorce. I give it three years maybe. He has serious anger issues!! We only see the surface of his issues when he goes ape shit in public.

  8. Kiddo says:

    It’s not relevant if the two women are not getting along. It is not, in any way, reasonable to connect that supposition to his behavior. People have far worse concerns and problems in their lives without resorting to pejoratives and threats. We don’t even know if it’s true. Maybe the NE is trying to yank Alec’s chain to get a reaction, who knows?

  9. Deb says:

    He makes Charlie Sheen look calm and rational by comparison. Ireland should just steer clear of him. She seems to have turned out to be a pretty well grounded young woman in spite of him.

    • Kiddo says:

      I don’t know about that. Wasn’t one of Sheen’s exes all battered?

      • HappyMom says:

        Yes. He beat up Brooke Mueller-they had some epic fight in Colorado. And back in the day, there was the shooting incident with Kelly Preston.

      • Emily C. says:

        And he threatened a sex worker he hired for the night. I don’t care that he sleeps around. It’s the violence toward women that makes him a mega douche.

        Oh and he had an actress fired because she didn’t bow down to him.

    • Ann says:

      Charlie Sheen has a history of being violent towards women. POS.

  10. Emily C. says:

    When a man acts ragey, it’s the fault of the women closest to him. Brilliant, Star. This is one of their ickier fanfics.

  11. Dommy Dearest says:

    What kind of a father even allows speculation of this? Seriously? To go ahead and let a magazine accuse his flesh and blood of causing problems while he blows up over twitter. Screw this man, send him to the island that Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kimye and both Biebers (Miley, you know) deserves to be on.

    I cannot stand this man. His unborn child will hate him. I’ll say it again.

    • thebutlerdidit says:

      Agreed on dispatching the others, add in the Hohans, Amanda Bynes, etc., but why bash Miley??? She’s awesome! I’ve worked with her, (not a big deal, really), on charity PR events several times, and she couldn’t have been more down-to-Earth, funny, & hard-working. Don’t believe everything you read in the tabs, online. Like this silly fake BS about the Baldwins.

    • Kiddo says:

      Frankly, I think ignoring the story is taking the high road. It’s much better than resorting to a rage on twitter. Not responding isn’t dignifying it with a answer.
