Even Tracy Morgan thinks Alec Baldwin is behaving erratically. When the comedian was asked to comment on his “30 Rock” co-stars recent behavior Morgan told Rob Shuter of VH-1’s “The Gossip Table,” “I don’t want to respond to that mess. I don’t want to even talk about that stuff.”

And the 45 year-old comic admitted that he rarely sees his old boss Tina Fey anymore.

! I have my own friends, she has her own friends. I’m a Dad, she’s a Mom,” he explained. We don’t hang out. It’s not that kind of party. No! I’m a middle-aged black man, she’s a middle-aged white woman. What we got in common? No! The love is still there. We’re still friends and all that but when you’re successful you don’t get to see your friends and family much, you’re working.

Morgan who has three grown sons is also Dad to a nine month old baby girl who has brought out a strongly protective streak in him. “I got a beautiful daughter and I also got a shotgun, a shovel and an alibi,” he said jokingly. “That’s what it feels like. I had respect for women before but I look at women and females with a whole new different respect now.”

He also admitted that as a teen he dealt crack which shames him deeply.

“I’m from the projects in Brooklyn, the ghetto. I was a teenager in the 80′s,” he explained. “Either you were using or you were selling it. I made a lot of money. Unfortunately I didn’t know what I was doing. I was trying to be like everybody else. All the kids in the neighborhood were selling it. We didn’t know we were destroying our own community."

"Thought about it later, I felt really bad and I still feel really bad about it now. I didn’t know. I seen how much it affected my family so I stopped doing it. Other than that I was just making money, I was like any other kid. Then I see how it tore my family apart and I said, ‘What am I doing?’ Growing up in the ghetto is pretty hard. It’s poverty, it’s frustration."

The funnyman has a new DVD out called "Tracy Morgan: Bona Fide" and will be embarking on a standup comedy tour this month.
