Sugar Bits - Alec Tells His Side on The View

  • Alec Baldwin attempts to explain the now infamous voicemail to his daughter on The View (which airs tomorrow). He says he was misdirecting his angry feelings for Kim. He also said he would be happy to never work in TV again. - Page Six
  • Eve was arrested for suspicion of DUI early this morning in LA after she totaled her Maserati. She was said to have double the legal limit of alcohol in her system. Thankfully no one was injured. - TMZ
  • Regis returned to Live with Regis and Kelly today after taking six weeks to recover from triple heart bypass surgery. David Letterman also appeared on the show to show his support. We're glad to see he had a full recovery! - AP
  • Joe Francis has been charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery from an incident in January where he was seen feeling up an 18-year-old girl even though she told him to stop. We're sure there will be quite a few lawsuits to follow. - People
  • Snoop has been denied entrance to Australia due to his lengthy criminal record. Earlier in the year he was wasn't allowed into Britain either. Perhaps he should just give up on the international tour? - AP

There is no way this will hurt Alec Baldwin's chances in tv, if he wanted to work in tv again. Marv Albert was caught wearing women's lingerie and he's back as a sports commentator. Yea, it was wrong, but he's not the first parent to go over the top. Hopefully they will work it out. Joe Francis on the other hand, had many many court dates in his future and could possibly be locked away for years, which seems like a good thing.

The whole Baldwin/Basinger mess is tragic. It's sad when adults can't behave like adults, and then make their children pay the price. I can't stand the sight of my ex at times, but we put our hard feelings aside for the sake of our kids. It's called maturity. I love Regis! He is a hard working man, and I wish him a full recovery! I'm tired of drunk drivers in general, but celebs in particular. Don't they have the money to hire drivers when they get sh*tfaced? Or call a cab? Or spend the night at a fancy hotel? Selfish celebs make me sick with how they have no regard for the law, or for the safety of others. Joe Francis is repulsive. It's obvious he has a hatred for women, and sees them as objects, and not as human beings. Maybe the Snoop situation will be a wake up call to all these performers who think they can carry guns and drugs around as they please. Maybe they will change their life around if you hit them in the pocket, where it hurts.

I agree with playsindirt - all of the coverage surrounding Alec Baldwin is frustrating to watch because we don't know all of the details. Miss Basinger could have pushed him to the point where he had no other outlet to get out some of his frustration then calling his daughter. This in NO WAY excuses his behavior... BUT pushed to the same circumstances what would you do if you were being kept away from your child?? The victim in all of this is Ireland and with a primary parent as Miss Basinger who could arrange for this voicemail to be leaked I would be very worried about that child. Just a thought.

I think it speaks volumes about Miss Basinger that she has alienated her ex-husband to the point that he's taking out his frustration on an 11-year-old child. It's obvious that he's been pushed to his limit. I also think she leaked the tape intentionally to smear his name and prevent him from achieving any sort of reasonable custody arrangement. I feel bad for him and the child. I think this is a woman who can't get over herself. No matter what happened between them, she's hurting her child by not allowing her to have a relationship with her father. Did he do a bad thing? Of course he did. But I think the back story is where the real dirt lies. You might as well just send that kid to re-hab now because that's where she will end up. And I think the judge in this case should be ashamed of him/herself for allowing this to drag on for SEVEN years!

Poor Ireland is fucked! She has a hot head father desperate to have visitation and be in her life and a crazy unstable mother who has had panic attacks since her nervous breakdown on the set of 9 1/2 Weeks when she was convinced Mickey Roarke and the director Adriane Lyne were going to kill her. And she has battled agoraphobia for years. Add to that Kim's insane hobby of collecting store bags and moving boxes..and that she owns 15 dogs and cats.. if she wasn't rich she would just be that crazy ass lady down the street that the neighborhood kids would dare each other to ring the door bell and run! So good luck with growing up normal Ireland.. thereapy therapy therapy.. and between you and me I would pick your father.

If a homophobic ass, rapists, child molesters et al can still work Holllywood then really alec should be allowed to stay on TV. He only yelled at the child but the Polanskis of this world are out there still making Oscar winning movies.

Very glad Regis made a full recovery. And Snoop...HA! Yeah Aussies with their common sense and concern for the well-being of their country! He needs to realize that his actions don't fly by in every corner of the world.

So true ilove2ski. She is old enough to understand this.. and will most likely continue this behavior into her adult life. It is scary how much power we have over our children and how wrong choices can ruin their futures!!! It is scary being a parent!!

Kim and Alex BOTH need to grow up and stop using their daughter to cause each other pain. ..If you see us in the club we'll be acting real nice if you see us on the floor you'll be watchin all night..
ilove2ski ilove2ski 10 years
UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least no one was hurt. But, seriously it makes me so mad when ANYONE drinks and drives. Do you not have money for a cab, or a friend or family member to pick you up? ..If you see us in the club we'll be acting real nice if you see us on the floor you'll be watchin all night..

I will wait to see what happens. I am by no means a fan of his but. Yeah Regis!!! Yeah Regis!!!

God for the sake of everyone around him, I hope that Alec learns something from this and can treat his daughter, ex-wife, coworkers and others around him with more respect and dignity.

Glad Alec is okay with not working in TV ever again. Chances are good he won't after this.

Why are people like Joe Francis and Snoop Dogg millionaires? I'm glad there's at least some consquences for their actions.
