My husband said it best... "You don't speak to a child like that... You don't speak to ANYONE like that -- regardless."
In addition to liberal, and useless idiot, I will now add words such as immature, narcissistic and psycho to my repertoire when a conversation comes up about Alec Baldwin.
Oh... I'm sorry, you didn't hear the voice message that Alec left for his daughter? Ah... well in addition to the threats he made to his 11 year old daughter, he called her a "rotten thoughtless little pig"... you know-- what every little girl wants to hear from her daddy...
Alec has already posted an "apology" on his website. I'm so proud of him... He managed to apologize for nothing, while at the same time blaming his ex spouse... oh and he managed to get in a plug for his new book..
Isn't that nice? Isn't that thoughtful?
Thank you to everyone who has posted messages of support and understanding. Naturally, it is not best for a parent to lose their temper with their child. Everyone who knows me privately knows that I have endured a great deal over the last several years in my custody litigation. Everyone who knows me privately
knows that certain people will go to any lengths to embarrass me and to disrupt my relationship with my daughter.
In such public cases, your opponents attempt to take a picture of you on your worst day and insist that this is who you are as a person. Outside the doors of divorce court, I have friends, I have respect from people I work with and I have a normal relationship with my daughter. All of that is threatened whenever one enters a court room.
Although I have been told by numerous people not to worry too much, as all parents lose their patience with their kids, I am most saddened that this was released to the media because of what it does to a child. I'm sorry, as everyone who knows me is aware, for losing my temper with my child. I have been driven to the edge by parental alienation for many years now. You have to go through this to understand. ( Although I hope you never do.) I am sorry for what happened. But I am equally sorry that a court order was violated, which had deliberately been put under seal in this case.
Once my book is published, I'm sure more people will understand the incredible strains created by parental alienation.
In the meantime, I'm sorry to anyone who's taken offense from this episode.
