ALEC BALDWIN's attempts at a reconciliation with wife KIM BASINGER look bleak after a family reunion ended in a heated spat.
The PEARL HARBOR (2001) star, who once likened his split from Kim to 'a punch in the stomach', tried to make amends on a family day out with their five-year-old daughter IRELAND.
The couple were spotted lunching in Studio City, Los Angeles, but eyewitnesses say the atmosphere was strained with Kim appearing agitated.
An onlooker says, "Baldwin was constantly berating Kim even in front of their daughter and the nanny. The trip was marred by arguments. "
Just days before, Baldwin had been bemoaning the loss of his family life, telling pals, "I will do anything at this point to make things right. I didn't think it would be this tough but I desperately love Kim and want to start again. "(KMW/WNTEX/RP)
