Fresh off an arrest for disorderly conduct, Alec Balwdin is back on the mean streets of NYC!
Lo and behold, a wild paparazzo appears and tries to ask him a few questions!
Oft angry Alec wasn’t having none of that, however! He pulled the stunned shutterbug aside, demanded that he turn off the cameras, and had a mano-a-mano conversation!!
What did the two of them talk about?
Ch-ch-check out the vid for yourself…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Well, their convo was off the record, but we doubt Alec just asked for directions to the Brooklyn Bridge!
Do U think he yelled at the dude for following him around? Maybe imparted some Jack Donaghy-esque wisdom on the intrepid young reporter, who knows!?

Be careful you don’t jaywalk, Alec Baldwin! Cross the street at the wrong time and you might just get arrested again!
The former 30 Rock star was out and about in New York City last night following his arrest for riding his bicycle the wrong direction on 5th Avenue!
If you haven’t seen his response to his incarceration on Twitter, oh man! CLICK HERE to see the rant to end all online rants!
Now we know Mr. Baldwin hates having his photograph taken but he looks even angrier than usual in that photo (above).
Probably still steaming from being cuffed and taken downtown when all he wanted to do was ride his bike!
We hope NYC was treating you a bit better last night. We didn’t hear anything about you being behind bars again, so just be happy that your “DAYS SINCE I’VE BEEN IN JAIL” sign can now proudly display the number 1.

If you thought Alec Baldwin was going to use his right to remain silent, you don’t know Jack Donaghy!
After the 30 Rock star was arrested for riding his bicycle the wrong way on Tuesday morning, he took to Twitter to tell his side! And he did NOT mince his 140 characters! He tweeted:
But he wasn’t done with the NYPD! That was just the beginning! He tweeted:
Man, those are some harsh words! The bicycle crime didn’t seem like a big deal to us either, but we’re not sure you can vilify an entire city just because you got busted.
Are Alec’s comments justified? What do U think?

Oh whoa, taking a page from Shia LaBeouf, eh?
Alec Baldwin has pretty much decided that he’s not famous anymore, not for a performance art piece, like his former co-star, but for, like, real.
In a pretty lengthy essay for New York Magazine, Alec has declared that he’s leaving the public spotlight and won’t be discussing his personal life, ever, in the future.
Including his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, and their daughter Carmen.
Among many, many points and explanations in the essay, it boils down to Alec thinking that the media has changed entirely from when he started his life in the spotlight.
And he’s not happy with that change.
“Now I don’t want to be Mr. Show Business anymore. I want the same thing everybody else wants. I want a happy home, and for the first time in my adult life, I have one. I love my wife more than anything in the world and I love my child more than anything else in the world and I don’t want that to change in any way.
I’ve lived this for 30 years, I’m done with it. I’m aware that it’s ironic that I’m making this case in the media, but this is the last time I’m going to talk about my personal life in an American publication ever again…I haven’t changed, but public life has…Now I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible. Paparazzi today are part of a network that includes the Huffington Post and, much to my dismay, even NBC News, in their reliance on tabloid reporting.”
At least he’s aware of the irony that he has to write an essay in a VERY public setting to say that he doesn’t want to be a public figure anymore.
To help with this newfound anti-public eye stance, Alec believes that a change of location is due.
“I just can’t live in New York anymore. Everything I hated about L.A. I’m beginning to crave. L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal. I used to hate that. But New York has changed.”
While we wish Alec luck in his quest for a more secluded life, we’ll have to wait and see if he can stick to his word on this one!
Shia said he was retiring and a couple days later his name was attached to a HUGE new movie project!
Let’s hope, for Alec’s sanity, that he can keep his word and not get himself into any more scandals !

Oh, blame game. You slippery, sultry minx.
Alec Baldwin allegedly yelled a homophobic slur and now he’s out of a job.
According the actor and former MSNBC talk show host, reactionary bloggers and GLAAD members are to blame.
Well, getting thrown under the Baldwin bus didn’t sit too well with GLAAD’s VP of Communication Rich Ferraro and now he’s firing back!
“I consider GLAAD’s campaigns to end the Boy Scouts of America’s ban on gay scouts, raise national visibility of the violence and inequality facing transgender people, and battling for marriage equality to be among my ‘greatest triumphs.’ But if a teacher, coach, local radio show host, or parent realizes that anti-LGBT slurs are outdated and unacceptable because of this Baldwin issue, I guess we’ll call it a win. Alec Baldwin’s team has not been open to turning this incident into an opportunity for public education and that’s unfortunate.”
The “Baldwin issue’? Hey-oh! That’s quite a burn!
In all seriousness, anti-gay slurs are hurtful and unnecessary. Hopefully Alec takes this opportunity to educate himself and set a positive example within the community.
If you want people to know how you really feel, then might as well tell them yourself!
Alec Baldwin has been in the news a lot recently for his run-ins with the paparazzi, using homophobic slurs and his show getting cancelled as a result.
Well, he wanted a chance to tell the story from his point of view, so he wrote a very long blog!
In it, he writes first about allegedly using the six-letter F word:
“I think it is important to note, in light of recent events, a couple of clarifications.
One is that I never used the word faggot in the tape recording being offered as evidence against me. What word is said right after the other choice word I use is unclear. But I can assure you, with complete confidence, that a direct homophobic slur (or indirect one for that matter) is not spoken. In the wake of referring to a tabloid “journalist” as a toxic queen, I would never allow myself to make that mistake again, nor would I expose my wife and family to the attendant ridicule. My friends who happen to be gay are baffled by this. They see me as one who has recently fought for marriage equality and has been a supporter of gay rights for many years. Now, the charge of being a “homophobic bigot,” to quote one crusader in the gay community, is affixed.”
Then Alec went on to explain how canceling his MSNBC special hurts other people who aren’t involved in his dramz and how that isn’t right. Then the 30 Rock actor added about 100 words on why he loves that network more than any other.
His final points were that Alec donated over half of his Capital One paycheck to charity, and finally that he fears for his family’s safety:
“Additionally, the press never turns the camera around on themselves. Least of all the tabloid press. My wife is a young mother with a newborn child. Yet reporters harass and hector her and our baby outside our home in ways that approximate a hockey brawl. It is shameful. And it should be illegal… This country’s obsession with the private lives of famous people is tragic. It’s tragic in the sense that it is so clearly a projection of people’s frustration about their government, their economy, their own spiritual bankruptcy. You have no voice in Washington. In Washington, or in any statehouse, no one actually cares what you think. So you post online, you vote with a Roman-esque thumbs up or down on the celebrity debacle of the day. That is your right. It’s also fatal misdirection of your voice and need to judge. Occupy Wall Street, on their worst day, had more integrity than the comments page of this website ever will.”
Some strong words right there! It’s the age-old catch 22 though because if he wasn’t famous people wouldn’t care what the Baldwins were up to.
To wrap it all up, Alec finished with:
“Two requests. Don’t allow my problem to be MSNBC’s problem. They are good people who work hard at a job, just like many of you. And two, please respect the privacy of my wife and family. If you have an opinion of me, then express it. Think what you like. But I ask that my wife, who I care about more than words can say, and both my children, be left out of this.”
Maybe the paparazzi can just give him and his family space for awhile and then all of this will go away.
But not what he said, because once it’s out there, you can’t take it back. Those words will always be with Mr. Baldwin, and that’s unfortunate.
