Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland has come to the actor's defense following the suspension of his MSNBC show, which came following the posting of a paparazzi video that shows him cursing out a photographer and using what many believe to be an anti-gay slur.

Baldwin had issued an apology last week after his outburst against a photographer was published online, saying he "did not intend to hurt or offend anyone" and in a new column published in the Huffington Post (warning: contains explicit language) on Saturday, he writes that he never uttered "a direct homophobic slur (or indirect one for that matter)."

Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin has been found guilty of stalking and harassing actor Alec Baldwin and was sentenced to 210 days in jail, OTRC.com has learned.

The verdict was handed down at a New York court on Thursday, Nov. 14. Sabourin was ordered to serve two-thirds of her sentence and must also stay away from Baldwin after she is released. A day earlier, she was sentenced to 30 days behind bars for making repeated outburts in court while Baldwin and his wife Hilaria were giving their testimonies.


She was meeting a movie star for dinner, and the woman accused of stalking Alec Baldwin said Wednesday it quickly shaped up like a dream date.

He picked her up at the posh hotel where he'd helped her secure a room, had a hired car drive them slowly through Central Park and then surprised her with tickets to a Broadway show on a February Friday in 2010, Genevieve Sabourin told the court where she's on trial.
