Tina Fey Speaks Out After Alec Baldwin Says He’s Leaving NBC
When asked about Baldwin’s peace out to the network via Twitter, Fey responded:
“As far as I know, he’s not leaving the show. We’re all in this together till the end. I think he just maybe means that the end of the show is visible on the horizon.”
The news that “30 Rock” might actually end after six seasons was unfathomable to Barbara Walters, after an ungodly three-thousand plus episodes of “The View.” But Fey graciously explained that she nor the rest of the “30 Rock” cast can keep the show going for “thirty-five-years.”
“We’d love to keep going and kind of see where everybody ends up, but you don’t want to see me with a gray stripe, eating a slice of pizza, going on dates,” said Fey.
But to be clear, the comedic actress explained that the future of “30 Rock” is not in her hands. And it’s not necessarily in Baldwin’s either, as he’s under contract for another season, should the show get renewed.
However, a binding legal agreement with the Peacock didn’t stop Baldwin from having a Twitter tantrum yesterday over the fact that a “Today” show crew was outside his apartment after Baldwin’s stalker was arrested. Baldwin claims the network made no attempt to contact him prior to the crew’s arrival and naturally took to Twitter to air his grievances. And unfortunately for NBC, it looks like the network may need Baldwin more than he needs them.
