Ireland Baldwin Teases Alec About His “Rude, Thoughtless Little Pig: Watch Now
The 21-year-old model was just one of a handful of stars to roast Alec Baldwin for Spike’s upcoming One Night Only special, taped over the weekend at Harlem’s World Famous Apollo Theatre. Other headliners included Daniel Baldwin, Bill Clinton, Jane Curtin, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer, Julianne Moore and Tracy Morgan, and Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon pre-taped a special performance. One Night Only: Alec Baldwin will air Sunday, July 9, at 9 p.m. ET.
“Hello, my name is Ireland, and I’m a Baldwin. Yes, I’m a member of that family. The Baldwins. I see other recovering Baldwins here.

He’s said stuff like that before just because he’s frustrated. For me it was like, ‘OK, whatever.’ I called him back I was like, ‘Sorry dad, I didn’t have my phone.’ That was it.”
