Alec Baldwin Says He's Quitting 30 Rock After NBC Pisses Him Off

If there's one thing we've learned from Twitter, it's that you never, ever want to upset Alec Baldwin. Now, NBC, the very network he appears on in 30 Rock, has incurred his wrath, and he's wasted no time in tweeting his revenge. Specifically, he's saying he's leaving NBC for good, which could be very, very bad news for fans of the only slightly less hot-headed Jack Donaghy.

The spat began this morning when NBC's Today Show "camped" outside his building. He thought they were trying to get an interview with him about his stalker, but it turns out they were just doing a live shot from outside. Anyway, he tweeted, "I haven't appeared on the Today Show in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt?" And followed up with, "A story about stalking sure brings out the stalkers in the media. But, the Today Show?" Worse, he apparently didn't know they were coming, saying, "No one from NBC contacted me until the Today Show arrived at my apt." This led him to conclude with, "I think I'm leaving NBC just in time." Wait, noooo! We thought Alec was already confirmed for the next season of 30 Rock, but maybe we thought wrong. Or maybe this is one of his famous rash decisions that not even NBC knows about. We'll have to wait and see if he calms down and/or changes his mind, but for now the future looks very dull without Jack to dole out priceless life lessons like "Never go with a hippie to a second location."

The investigation into Whitney Houston's death has officially been closed, and no charges were filed against anyone. The tape of the 911 call from her hotel has also been released. It's pretty uneventful, just a hotel staff member saying there's a 46-year-old woman who's not breathing in one of their rooms. He did say, however, that he couldn't patch the 911 operator through to Whitney's room because the woman who'd called from there was "irate" and kept hanging up on it. Hmm. [E!, TMZ]

Well, it's finally happened. Mr. Big is off the market. No, he did not marry Carrie Bradshaw, because she's not actually a real person. (Sorry to burst your bubble.)

Oh my Goddd, you guyz. Ryan Gosling took a walk in New York City today, and he didn't save even a single person's life while he was out. LAZY. He must be having an off day. Anyway, he did have lunch with a friend, and from the looks of it they went to Westville, which is one of my personal favorite restaurants. So, at the very least, we know he's got excellent taste in food. [HuffPo]
