Christie Brinkley Isn't Going To Put Up With Alexa Ray's Bullshizz

Christie Brinkley is coming out about how she dealt with daughter Alexa Ray Joel's overdose scare.

She tells sources that she wanted to be compassionate to her daughter, but still tried to serve up some "tough love."

She says:

"Your job as a parent is to listen. And to dole out as much love as you can. That includes tough love. I told Alexa, 'You got yourself worked into such a tizzy. You need to examine that, you need to seek professional advice.' She tried to do something dramatic to prove to her boyfriend how much he hurt her. I think many people can relate to that excruciating pain of love gone wrong. I'd rather have a broken arm than a broken heart."

She also wants to make it clear that Alexa wasn't attempting suicide since she had only taken homeopathic aspirin. And even though she's still in therapy, Alexa is taking the time to focus on her career.

Homeopathic aspirin?? We're glad Alexa didn't take anything worse and got the help she needed!

Alexa Ray Joel Apologizes For Being "Dramatic"

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!

But she's not going the Heidi Montag route!

Alexa Ray Joel opted for a nose job earlier this month and she's pretty pleased with the outcome. She explains:

“I was thinking about getting this for years. [My nose] always bothered me a little bit. I was self-conscious of pictures taken from the side. To some people that’s vain, but at the end of the day, we all want to feel pretty.

“Would I do anything else to my body? No. It’s not ten procedures like Heidi Montag. For me, that’s a little extreme, but to each her own.”

It looks pretty good — and at least she was honest and upfront about it unlike SOME people!

How sweet! Mother/daughter plastic surgery!

Couldn't they just have had a day of glamor and gone for facials?

While Alex Ray Joel was getting her new nose, mom Christie Brinkley decided to freshen up and get a face-lift, according to Star magazine.

Both procedures allegedly cost about $60,000!

Wow!

What do U think of Christie's new face??

They must be on good terms!

Billy Joel was spotted at the premiere of Last Play At Shea at the Tribeca Film Festival not only with his daughter Alexa Ray Joel, but also his ex-wife Christie Brinkley.

His other and more recent ex-wife Katie Lee was also present, but the two didn't pose for pictures together.

But it's nice to see when divorced couples can get along after the fact — good for them!

Alexa Ray Joel's Commercial For Prell Is Amazing

| Filed under: Alexa Ray JoelChristie BrinkleyBusiness Blitz

Wow, Wow, WOW!

We mentioned a few months ago that Christie Brinkley's daughter Alexa Ray Joel had been named the new face of Prell Shampoo.

And as part of the deal, Alexa was set to appear in new TV ads for the company in which she'd also be able to advertise her music and maybe sing a note or two.

Well, the ad has just been released, and we're loving it!

The 24-year-old looks gorgeous as ever in the commercial. The hair, the makeup, the clothes. It all works.

And aside from looking better than she ever has, the ad also features a teaser of her song, Hideaway.

The photo of Brinkley on the piano at the beginning of the ad is a bit cheesy, but overall, we can't get over how great Alexa looks.

Alexa Ray Joel For Prell Shampoo

| Filed under: Alexa Ray JoelChristie BrinkleyAd Campaigns

Like mother, like daughter.

Alexa Ray Joel will be following in her mother Christie Brinkley's footsteps as she's been named the new face of Prell shampoo.

And Alexa Ray will be using the ads to her full advantage. After unfortunately inheriting her father Billy Joel's looks and musical talents, she'll also be providing the music for the TV ads.

Many believe that while she liked the idea of succeeding her mom, the sole reason she inked the deal was so she could promote her music.

Clever girl.

A rep for the celebuspawn says "This is Alexa's first ad campaign. It is for print and TV for spring and summer. We will also shoot a fall campaign."

Congrats!
