Hoser of the Week

Kim Basinger is the Hoser of Week for being a crappy parent. The hot cartoon from Cool World embarrassed her daughter and the father of her child by releasing an irate voicemail that Alex Baldwin left for his daughter. Divorce is a terrible thing, but the idea of displaying anger at your ex through his or her parenting indiscretions seems beyond the pale to me. Granted, his reaction is harsh, but we all know that parents go a little nuts every now and then. We all have stories about our parents flying off the happens, and they always apologize after. Alec Baldwin might be a bad parent, and if he is, that is for his ex-wife, his daughter, and him to deal with. There is no place for this is the public sphere. With all that said, here's the article and the audio, just as a warning to our readers, some of his language is not suitable for 11 year olds.

If the daughter has an eating disorder later in life, that pig comment will really come back to haunt Alec.

It's worth mentioning that today is Friday the 20th. The only other Friday the 20th in 2007 is July, so unless Alec is going to let this fester until then (and I doubt he will given the tone of the message) today is the day. I have a few questions. Did he straighten her out? Has she insulted him since? What are the chances her phone is off when he calls to meet her? Is he really staying for the day, or will he decide to make a weekend out of it?

I don't know why, but I find this message utterly hilarious.
