Alec Baldwin To Write Parenting Book

Alec Baldwin To Write Parenting Book

In a recent interview with Playboy, 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin discussed his future plans to write a book on parenting.

It will be ironic for some people, but I’m going to write a parenting book,” says the 51-year-old actor. “We’re at, not a crisis, but an awful place right now in terms of parenting. People are raising their children with the belief that we need to be friends with our children. Kids have too much power and call too many of the shots, telling their parents what they will and won’t do.”

The father of one shared his philosophies on what is wrong with the world today: “In my gut I feel it’s another manifestation of how hard life has become. People are working hard to make money and manage their feelings about what the country’s going through. We live in stressful times. People come home, walk up the driveway, put the key in the door, and they just can’t do another hard job. Parenting your children effectively is a tough job.”

Alec’s newest writing endeavor may come as a surprise to those who remember the April 2007 voice-mail debacle where he accused his now 13-year-old daughter, Ireland, of being a “rude little pig” who needed to have her “ass straightened out” after she had “humiliated [him] for the last time.”

In the Playboy interview, Baldwin goes on to say that the man who originally released the controversial voice-mail, Harvey Levin of TMZ, is a “human tumor, a graceless character who lives in that weird netherworld.”

What do you think? Will you turn to Alec for parenting advice?

Kelly Rutherford: “I’ll Raise My Children Alone”

Kelly Rutherford: “I’ll Raise My Children Alone”

Gossip Girl Kelly Rutherford, who gave birth to her second child, Helena Grace, on June 8, made the tough decision to file for divorce from husband Daniel Giersch when she was just three months pregnant. Kelly, 40, recently spoke to Life & Style about her stressful split, the cold custody battle and her plans to be a single mother.

When Kelly found out that she was pregnant again, she had hopes that a new baby might be just what they needed to save their already faltering marriage. “I found out I was pregnant, and I thought, oh, maybe things will be nice, maybe it will be calm,” says Kelly. “But it wasn’t. Things only got more intense.”

The stresses at home were only exacerbated by troubles with her husband’s job. “He was very litigious. He says he’s an entrepreneur, but I think he just sues people. It was very angry [behavior]. I was kind of scared to leave.”

A close friend of the actress, Suzannah, tells Life & Style: “[Daniel was] cold, controlling and paranoid – he threatened to ruin her career and sabotage her. He gave me the creeps, and he was beginning to get scary. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to get away.”

Regardless of issues with her ex-husband, Kelly is thriving as a parent and doesn’t believe that she needs a man to complete the equation: “A lot of great men, presidents even, were raised [only] by their mother under those conditions. The most important thing is that the children have love and stability in their lives, whether that comes from a mother or a father. [Alone], I can raise them to be much more peaceful.”

Kelly and Daniel are also parents to 2-year-old Hermes.

    George Lopez & Family Holiday In Florence

    George Lopez & Family Holiday

    It was a day of sightseeing for George Lopez and family – the comedian was spotted in Florence, Italy yesterday with his wife Ann and their 14-year-old daughter Mayan.

    The close-knit crew played tourists in the beautiful city, strolling through the historic Piazza della Signoria and posing for pics.

    The holiday is likely a much-needed break for the busy actor, who has been preparing for his upcoming HBO special titled, Tall, Dark and Chicano. His family-friendly film Mr. Troop Mom – co-starring Mayan – also premiered on Nickelodeon last month. Proud papa George reports that his daughter is a natural:

    “She wants to be a star. Before we started filming, I told her to not look at the camera, listen to the director and, ‘If you fall, keep going until someone yells cut.’ She was, like, ‘Dad, I got it.'”
