Hilaria Baldwin, Alec’s wife, lives in some kind of disconnect world, a fantasy land.
She’s posted pictures not only of her kids, but of her and Alec in full Halloween regalia, some matching costumes, from their Manchester, Vermont getaway. There’s even a video of their two youngest kids dancing in costume. So cute.
It’s only ten days ago that Alec accidentally shot and killed a woman, a mother, and a wife. He also injured a man. They were respectively the cinematographer and director of his movie, “Rust,” on location in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Over the weekend, Alec and Hilaria, whose real name is Hilary, gave an impromptu press conference on the street in Manchester while shopping. During the interview, Alex swatted Hilaria away not once but twice for getting in between him and the interviewer.
Hilaria gave a separate statement, explaining how they got to Manchester, Vermont. It’s a surprise turn of events since the family lives in Greenwich Village in a massive apartment, and also has a huge home in the Hamptons. Hilaria said when news broke of the Santa Fe shooting she threw her kids in the car and just drove as fae away as she could, winding up in Manchester by accident.
But truth be told, Hilaria– er, Hilary’s– family has had a home in near East Arlington for years. Her grandfather, John Thomas Sr., lived there. The house was sold when he died. But the Thomases have deep roots there. They are indeed, not Spanish in away. They are blue blood, red-blooded Americans.
According to his obituary, Thomas was a trustee for the Bennington Museum and of the Vermont Historical Society. He and his wife spent time “preserving, building, and curating the Russell Vermontiana Collection,” which is now at the Martha Canfield Library. He was one of the founders of the Arlington Townscape Association, which, according to the obituary, was responsible for a book about the history of Arlington.
So Hilaria is essentially lying when she makes it seem like their arrival in Manchester is by chance. And the pictures on her Instagram account indicate they are in a local home, no doubt owned by them or relatives.
No one is denying the Baldwin six pack of kids a Halloween, or even trick or treating. But it’s the posting of the photos that’s galling. You can imagine that the child of the woman who was killed, Halyna Hutchins, did not have such a swell Halloween. His father and family must have been desperate to give him one. But his mom is dead and not coming back. And 3,000 miles away, the family of the man who was involved in her death is having a grand time, and telling everyone about it.
