Time, and a new appreciation of dad’s fame and fortune heals all wounds.
Ill-tempered Alec Baldwin was roasted Sunday night by friends, costars and family at Harlem’s World Famous Apollo Theatre in New York City, with the actor’s daughter on hand to help poke fun at dear ol’ dad, People Magazine reported.
‘Speaking of Pigs…’: Ireland Baldwin Jokes About That Infamous Voicemail as She Toasts Dad Alec https://t.co/FmtAiYPj1A

Ireland Baldwin, the “rude, thoughtless, little pig” who was on the receiving end of a tirade by her father 10 years ago, took a few jabs at her father — the 21-year-old model can better visualize the benefits of Baldwin’s estimated $65 million net worth today than when she was a little girl.
“Hello, my name is Ireland, and I’m a Baldwin,” she told attendees. “Yes, I’m a member of that family — the Baldwins — I see other recovering Baldwins here. I’m here to roast this big old ham I call my father.”

Knowing she couldn’t ignore the infamous insult her father left on voicemail during his contentious divorce from actress Kim Basinger, Ireland opted instead to embrace it.
“Speaking of pigs, some of you may remember me as that ‘thoughtless little pig’ you read about,” she said. “That was a decade ago, and my dad and I are in a much better place now. He would never say something like that. Because I’m 6’2″ and I would … kick his ass.”
Working to secure her inheritance, Ireland then tried to evoke sympathy for Baldwin.
“The truth is, that whole awful period nearly killed him emotionally,” she added. “I wouldn’t see my dad that upset ever again…until I showed him my first tattoo. Okay, my second tattoo. I couldn’t show him where I got the first one.”
Well… she is a Baldwin.
