A former friend of Carol Baldwin’s is planning to spill all of the Baldwin family’s secrets in a new tell-all book. The author, Joseph Edstrom claims that the secrets he knows about Alec, Daniel, Stephen and Billy Baldwin could rival their shocking behavior in their movies.
Joseph Edstrom was close with Carol Baldwin when he was a volunteer for the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the 1990s. He and the foundation’s former publicist, Ellen Barron are working together to air all the Baldwin family dirty laundry.
Edstrom stated that, “The stuff coming out in this book is gonna be a horror. We used to cruise around in Carol’s car with her all the time and her mouth never stopped. She told us every secret of her family.”
“Carol told us that she didn’t feel Alec [Baldwin] was the most talented. She thought Stephen was the most talented. She’d say, ‘He can sing. He can dance. He can jump around and he can act.’”
One person Carol wasn’t fond of according to Edstrom was Alec’s then wife, Kim Basinger. “When I saw [Kim’s Oscar winning performance in] L.A. Confidential with carol, she spent the whole time during the movie putting down Kim. But of course Kim won the Oscar.”
Joseph Edstrom will even cover Daniel Baldwin’s history of addiction. Edstrom claims he had a firsthand view of Daniel’s suspected overdose and subsequent hospitalization in 1998.
Edstrom said, “You all know the history of Daniel. When you read the book, you’re gonna understand why he had so many problems. This family is not the dynasty that everybody believes that they are.”
“They’re trailer park trash. And if I’m complaining, there’s probably at least 30 or 40 people behind me that feel the same way.”
