What do you do when your high-profile parents' bitter custody battle hits a whole new level? Well, if you're Ireland Baldwin, you just go out and have some fun with pugs.
Photographers caught Ireland and friends walking dogs and acting her age days after an angry phone message left by her father, Alec Baldwin, was made public.
She hit the Nuts for Mutts Dog Show and Pet Fair on Sunday in Los Angeles.
In the wake of the ranting voice mail, disseminated by TMZ.com, Ireland was surrounded by girlfriends and trailed by what appeared to be a security force of two.
"So you better be ready, Friday the 20th to meet with me so I can let you know just how I feel about what a rude little pig you really are," Alec warned Ireland in the voice mail. His spokesman later admitted in a statement to "Access Hollywood" that "Alec acknowledges he should have used different language in parenting his child."
Despite Alec's Friday the 20th threat, he remained in New York this past weekend, taking a trip to the Hamptons. Here, he's seen leaving a popular deli.
Mom Kim Basinger, who canceled her scheduled appearance at the Nuts for Mutts event at the last minute was with Ireland the day before in L.A. and now employs her own bodyguard. She has been accused by Alec's lawyer of making the voice mail public.
On Friday Baldwin and his lawyer filed paperwork, asking an L.A. court to investigate how the message was made public and by who. Kim's spokeswoman wouldn't comment on the situation, other than to say, "The voice mail speaks for itself."
At least one star shared with "Access Hollywood," her thoughts on the released tape: new Jenny Craig spokeswoman Valerie Bertinelli.
"You have to love your children more than you hate your ex," said Bertinelli, who had her own well-publicized split from rocker Eddie Van Halen. "I think it's unfortunate the tape was released. I don't think it's for public consumption, and I think whoever did it should really be ashamed of themselves."
