On this date in in 1993 Actress Kim Bassinger married Actor Alec Baldwin and the term “This is going to be a f$#*ing train-wreck” enters the American lexicon. Scientists soon discovered that there is a mathematical formula that states that [W+E(A+$+R)]+[M +E(A+$+R]= FTw, with W is woman, M is man, E is ego, A is attractiveness, $ is money, R is recognizability and FTw is f$#*ing trainwreck. The Bassinger/Baldwin marriage proved to be one of the biggest train-wrecks of the 1990s and early 2000s and paid for the paparazzi’s cheap liquor and dental plans in New York City and Hollywood.
