What the hell? Alec Baldwin—he of the brilliant Rip Torn-esque comedic renaissance—is having serious trouble as a parent. Late last night his 14-year-old daughter called 911 after Baldwin threatened to swallow a bunch of sleeping pills. Apparently they’d had a fight, and Baldwin was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital but was released shortly thereafter. Jesus. Talk about the parent needing parenting. Poor Ireland (the daughter, not the country).

P.S. I’d tell him to read this, but I don’t think he really needs it.
