At Spike TV’s “One Night Only” roast of Alec Baldwin, his daughter Ireland was not pulling any punches.
The 21-year-old model took the mic at the Apollo Theater in Harlem to poke fun at her dad, joking about his notorious 2007 voicemail in which he called her a “rude, thoughtless, little pig.”
Ireland started by introducing herself. “Yes, I’m a member of that family. The Baldwins,” she said. “I see other recovering Baldwins here. Some cousins, uncles… I’m here to roast this big old ham I call my father.”
Then Ireland added, “Speaking of pigs. Some of you may remember me as that thoughtless little pig you read about. 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 a**.
“The truth is, that whole awful period nearly killed him emotionally. I wouldn’t see my dad that upset ever again,” Ireland said, “until I showed him my first tattoo. Okay, my second tattoo. I couldn’t show him where I got the first one.”
Though Ireland’s speech was full of jabs—Alec reportedly threw food at her while she spoke—she was sure to talk lovingly about her father.
“I know you’ve heard this time and again, but I really am proud to be your daughter, and I’m so happy to be here tonight,” Ireland said, “and I absolutely love and adore you.”
Also on hand to toast and roast Alec was former president Bill Clinton.
“[Alec] ended up going to George Washington University for two years, ran for student body president, then came back home to New York where he followed a then-classic path: from politics into soap operas,” Clinton told the audience. “Now we know it works the other way around.”
Other headliners at the event included Julianne Moore and Robert De Niro.
“One Night Only: Alec Baldwin” will air on Spike TV, Sunday, July 9, at 9 p.m. ET.
