Alec Baldwin and his wife, 29-year old yoga instructor Hilaria Baldwin, attended James Gandolfini's funeral at Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York yesterday morning, and while everyone was grieving, Hilaria allegedly thought it would be a good idea to hop on Twitter and retweet stories about herself, talk about smoothie recipes, and ask for anniversary shopping tips. No big deal. James Gandolfini was just in a dead in a casket in the same room. What does he care? Apparently someone did, because after the funeral, reporter George Stark (not of House of Stark) wrote a story about it for Daily Mail. Including the below timeline:
8-ish am: Mrs Baldwin retweeted an Us Weekly link about herself
8:47am: Tweeted about making smoothies on Rachael Ray. She then retweeted a Rachael Ray about her own beach bag packing tips
9:53am: She joked that Billy Joel’s ex-wife has good smoothie recipies
About 10am: Around the time the funeral is scheduled to start, she retweets Rachael Ray again, this time about her smoothies
10:17am: Tweets about the circle of life as James’ friends are speaking at his funeral
11:09am: She tweets asking for shopping tips for an anniversary present as Rev. Dr. Kowalski addressed the congregation
3:49pm: She insists that she doesn't 'believe in bringing phones into a funeral' adding, 'I never did and I never would'
Then….Alec Baldwin read the story. And became completely and fantastically unhinged on Twitter:
“George Stark, you lying little b—-h. I am gonna f%#@ you up,”
“My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend, and some toxic Brit writes this f—ing trash"
“(I’d) put my foot up your f—king ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much"
“I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f—k…you…up.”
“I don’t have a publicist anymore. I fired them.”
“How much of this shit are people supposed to take? With these f—king blatant lies EVERY DAY,”
“My wife DID NOT use her phone, in any capacity, at our friends funeral. Now, f—k this twitter + good luck to all of you who know the truth.”
He then immediately deleted his Twitter account. Hilaria is now claiming she and Alec left through a side exit because she's pregnant and was feeling faint because of the heat, so we can probably let the slide. Mostly because pregnancy induces a form of psychosis that scientists have yet to fully understand. Basically anything a woman does while she's pregnant should be stricken from the official record because their minds have been hijacked by hormones and the life-sucking force growing inside of her. So if you're walking down the street and see a pregnant woman crying while she's skinning a mountain lion and using the hide to make reusable diapers, just smile, nod, keep walking, and avoid eye contact. Because what she's doing makes perfect sense in her head.
