Alexa Ray Joel Apologizes For Being "Dramatic"

| Filed under: Love LineAlexa Ray Joel


Well that's an understatement!

Alexa Ray Joel has taken the time to publicly apologize to family and friends about her overdose scare in December. She explains:

"I did say, 'I want to die' on the (911 call). Did I really want to? Absolutely not! I was being dramatic, and I take responsibility and apologize to everybody involved."

She did fess up that the reason for her dramatics was due to a breakup from her on again/off again boyfriend Jimmy Riot. After he refused to accept a Christmas gift from her, things went downhill. She says:

"I was in such a dark place. My soul was shattered. I only felt OK with him. I couldn't play a show without him. I was addicted to this man and it spiraled out of control. My heart broke all over again.

"Does it hurt that someone who was my love and best friend didn't contact me after I overdosed? Absolutely. I had a breakdown, crying that night, but, at the end I realized I didn't need him."

Alexa Ray admits that the crisis brought her closer to her family and that she now feels better than ever saying, "I'm in a Zen good place."

Breaking up sucks, but it shouldn't have to suck THAT bad — we're glad it sounds like she got her shiz together!

    call me normal, i don't know what to say

  5. 5

    I've been in a place like that before. I completely understand. I'm glad she got her head together.

    this chick is seriously fucked up but gets all the sympathy from liberals, Bristol Palin is trying to right a big mistake by taking responsibility and accountability for her life and lberals call her everything from and idiot to a whore. Liberals are very funny people.

    she's got bette davis eyes

    … or was that marty feldman ;P

    Your eye makeup highlights your bug eyes.
    Something new and updated would be more attractive.
    BTW, you look great with your new nose.

  9. 9

    luv her new nose job…she did just the right amount

  10. 10

    That would be difficult to admit. Gotta give her credit. I'll be glad when she gets some better material because she has an incredible voice.

  11. 11

    Good for her! Sounds like she is discovering new and healthier ways to deal with intense emotions! Takes guts to take it on the chin like that with a public apology!

  12. 12

    I am happy she is working on her issue's, but this girl scares me when I see her picutre!!! lol

  13. 13

    So then all her parents publiscitsts commens about the situation were lies.

  14. 14

    SO glad she sounds strong and OK. I know what she was feeling - I've been there… when you're in that darkness, it's impossible to imagine there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
    Stay strong, sweetie!

  15. 15

    If it was my kid, I'd lie too. Her suicide attempt over a broken heart is not exactly our business.

  16. 16

    Perez-you are a dick. A big jealous one at that. You wouldn't know about breakups if you never have them.

  17. 17

    when will she apologize for that nose?

  18. 18

    Do I hate it when people ask themselves a question then answer it? Yes, I do.

    Re: April 20th – so true… what does he know about ANYTHING??

  20. 20

    I'm wondering if any guy will get involved with her now. Scary! Re: buck

    Bristol Palin leaves snail trails of her stinky/nasty puss*y mucus all over mama's new carpet.

  21. 21

    So she was acting a brat and throwing a fit because what she wanted she couldn't have…..suprise surprise…you still look like shit even after the nose job, Alexa Ray….in other words, your insides still match your outsides.

  22. 22

    Re: Sandra_Nazi_Bullock – Not everyone can rock the flabby neckbeard like you can.

  23. 23

    Alexa may be high drama but she's still HOT!
    Re: buck – I love seeing Palin pissing everybody off but her daughter Bristol should keep a lower profile and just raise her child.

    Re: Poindexter-X – You must make your mother and dad proud. All the years or raising you and money spent for your education and all.
    Proverbs 18:2 - "A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions."

    Re: Heisenberg – I don't know what a neck beard is but if it's a big black jizz oozing cock that's stuff down your throat…then yes no one can rock that like I can, thanks for noticing…now stfu and keep throating my cock, you fat unkempt housewife.

  26. 26

    I think she's pretty, honest and was willing to put her faults out there. Good for her.

  27. 27

    Not attractive but I think I might be digging the rack. Any better pics?

  28. 28

    shes sounds like on of those needy girlfriends that clings to their man like a parasite…ooooo

  29. 29

    Looks at her; what kind of Psychotics do you thing her Shrink gave her?

  30. 30

    She may be depressed because she's not pretty like her mom & she's not musical like her dad, but JEEZE, she is going to be LOADED when her parents kick the bucket!

  31. 31

    she looks like a robot

  32. 32

    perez shut the fuck up on this one….heartbreak is one of the most devestating things that can ever happen to a person i felt exactly the same way a few months and her statements just make me admire her so much!! GO ALEXA!!

  33. 33

    Been there. Would never want to go back again. She doesn't need to apologize to anyone.

  34. @v@ says – reply to this


    Not accepting a gift could be cruel, but young men aren't equipped with counselling degrees and the experience of knowing how to handle break ups kindly, either. They all do this kind of stuff in break ups. So do some young women, for a lack of a better way to handle it. Avoidance is easy, and working through a break up with humane consideration isn't, so out of sight, out of mind is easiest for most.

  35. @v@ says – reply to this


    Being capable of loving that big reminds me of almost every creative artist I've known. Being dramatic is a very common hallmark of people her age. Time, experience and pragmatism will temper those feelings and mold/channel them into music and situations that are more productive. She need not apologize for being young and human. She's obviously a romantic. : )

    She's so eloquent and I just love that she's not leeching off of dad or mom's fame.

  38. 38

    Re: buck – Please just go and die.

  39. 39

    u know i actually think she looks better before the nose job when i googled her. but maybe that could also be the makeup she's wearing in this photo

    and that's good that she cleared everything up and is being true to herself. that says a lot about her character
    and i agree with THE.SWEET.CYNN

    Re: flora_tink – Her eye make up is all wrong for those eyes.
