Blogger Bites Back: Alec Baldwin backtracks on '30 Rock' demise

Add a comment

Actor Alec Baldwin has backpedalled on his recent declaration that the proverbial plug will be pulled on hit TV show 30 Rock in 2012.

Two days after he boomed that the next season of 30 Rock will be its last, Baldwin's now done a U-turn and hopes the show "goes on forever".

Someone's overcompensating a smidgen.

Baldwin told New York Magazine's Vulture at a fundraising gala in New York earlier this week that "next year is our last year of the show."

"I will tell you one thing," he said, "And that is our show next year is our last year of the show. Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina [Fey] is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She's going to be the next Elaine May. She'll be great."

Scrap that. Although Baldwin has made no secret of the fact that he wants to leave the Emmy-winning show in 2012, he's now changed his tune and hopes the show won't be given the chop.

"Gosh," a seemingly bamboozled Baldwin wrote in a brief blog entry on the Huffington Post.

"I want to take the opportunity to state that although my days on network TV may be numbered, I hope 30 Rock goes on forever. Or at least as long as everyone involved desires."

He continued: "Next year hopefully won't be the last," while suggesting some upcoming storylines for the show, "Kenneth can run the network. Jenna will get her own talk show. Tracy will become the Mayor of New York. Then resign and go raise exotic reptiles. And Lemon will go do ... just about anything she sets her mind to.

"Here's to five more seasons."

Indeed. But here's to something worthy of immediate celebration ... Tina Fey is expecting her second child!

The 30 Rock actress and creator announced the news during a taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show (scheduled to air on April 12) yesterday.

Her rep has since confirmed that the star is five months along. Fey and her husband, composer Jeff Richmond, also have a 5-year-old daughter, Alice.

Fey, 40, also reveals in her new book, Bossypants, that she struggled with the idea of having another child.

"I thought that raising an only child would be the norm in Manhattan, but my daughter is the only child in her class without a sibling," Fey quips in her book. "Most kids have at least two."

"Who will be my daughter's family when my husband and I are dead from stress-induced cankers?" she adds. "She must have a sibling."

She continues: "Do I look like someone who should be pregnant? I look good for 40, but I have the quaggy jawline and hollow cheeks of a mom, not a pregnant lady. It's now or never. This decision can't be delayed."

Decision made. Mission accomplished.

Congratulations!

Sheen-ius eyes Mila Kunis as ideal 'goddess'

Run for the hills, Mila Kunis - self-proclaimed 'winning' warlock and tiger blood pimp Charlie Sheen has his eye on you.

During a performance of his My Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option stage show in Columbus, Ohio, this week, Sheen said he's recruiting for another goddess to join his live-in ladies Bree Olsen and Natalie Kenly.

He's got his porn star and a marijuana magazine model, now he wants an actress to join the circus - with him as ringmaster, naturally.

"Here's the good news - my goddesses have already f**king approved her. She's pre-approved!" Sheen told the audience.

"I would have great tolerance for many missing items provided it involves Mila f**king Kunis: If Mila Kunis is stealing your s**t , trust me, you're still f**king winning, you're still winning at that moment."

He explained: "You know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to go on her Facebook page and discover her likes.

"I'm going to buy them all and then she can come steal them. A super f**king hot thief named Mila Kunis. 'Mila, please, we have a warehouse full of your favourite s**t for you to steal in Sherman Oaks'."

"Do me a favour," Sheen then told the crowd, "Go buy a T-shirt. I don't have an f**king job."

Something tells me Kunis will be otherwise detained, Sheen. As in "Sorry I can't, I'm getting my nails done and washing the goldfish."

Meet Penelope's bambino

Penelope Cruz and her Spanish hunk Javier Bardem have finally indulged in a spot of PDB (Public Display of Bambino).

Check out this snap of the pair sporting their tiny tot, Leo, while out and about in Will Rogers Park, California last week.

Cruz and her fella tied the knot in July 2010, and the Vicky Cristina Barcelona popped in late January.

Britney Spears' tour in chaos?

Hold the phone: Despite rumours to the contrary, pop marvel Britney Spears' Femme Fatale tour is not on the skids.

Britain's The Sun newspaper boomed yesterday that Spears wanted to postpone the tour because she needs more time to rehearse. A move that supposedly went down like a lead balloon with her record label.

A snitch told the newspaper: "Britney has told her management that she wants to push back her concert dates because she's not feeling ready.

"She doesn't feel she has enough time to prepare and has asked management to pull all her dates and postpone everything until later on in the year.

"She's a perfectionist and wants everything to be better than ever before."

But we bring good tidings, Britney fans - her reps have denied the report, and insist the tour is all set to go.

A rep said: "The story in The Sun today isn't true - Britney's tour is NOT being postponed!"

The tour is due to begin in Sacramento, California on 17 June.

Meanwhile, feast your eyes on Spears' promo for new single Till The World Ends:

Eva Longoria pops out on Letterman

Desperate Housewives siren Eva Longoria parked her derrière on David Letterman's couch this week to promote her new cookbook, Eva's Kitchen.

But it wasn't her kitchen delights that drew all the attention - it was her barely-there outfit.

"I wore a tuxedo for you," the actress told Letterman, to which he quipped, "That's only part of a tuxedo."

Sure enough her tuxedo jacket - with nothing underneath - wasn't about to be upstaged, and so 'pop' went one of its buttons.

"Oh my button! I'm sorry... but you didn't see anything," Longoria shrieked.

"Oh lord, we're going to lose our liquor license," replied Letterman.

Well that's certainly one way of selling a book.
