Hilaria Baldwin is the wife of actor/pugilist Alec Baldwin. I guess his marriage to Kim Basinger didn’t work out so now he’s with this lady. She’s pretty and a yoga teacher, which is the résumé you want to become a rich, old guy’s third or fourth wife.
Hilaria claimed she was Spanish but is actually from Massachusetts, which isn’t in Spain at all. But she lived in España a while, speaks the language, and has dark hair, so close enough, I guess.
A few days ago some guy on Twitter said her real name is Hillary Baldwin, she isn’t Spanish, and this is a very bad thing. We can’t have Massachusetts people running around willy-nilly claiming to be from Spain. How would civil society function if we tolerated this behavior? That’s right: Juan Kerry in a matador outfit dumping clam chowdah for a spicy paella. Madness.
Online people got really, really mad at this lady. Worse than that bomber in Nashville or the global pandemic. She could have said she was a man trapped in a yoga instructor’s body but saying she’s from Spain was a bridge too far.
Anyway, Hilaria made a video I didn’t watch saying it was a misunderstanding. Alec Baldwin made a video I didn’t watch where I assume he said he’d punch people dissing his hot wife. He punches people a lot, which is frowned upon, but at least he never said he was Spanish.
Ever notice that in every photo of Alec Baldwin, he’s pursing his lips? It’s weird. His brothers do it too. They are from Long Island, which is English for Isla Grande. Billy Joel es de Isla Grande, también.
Now I’m just filling up space, but I think that’s about it. Now you understand everything there is to know about the biggest story of 2020.
For the record, I’m #TeamHilaria (#EquipoDeHilaria) because A) she’s pretty and, B) I don’t want Alec Baldwin to punch me.
