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

| Filed under: Alexa Ray JoelChristie Brinkley

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!

Alexa Ray Joel Gets A Nose Job

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?

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 Speaks Out!

| Filed under: Alexa Ray Joel

Considering her brush with death earlier this month, Alexa Ray Joel has thanked everyone for their love and support through this difficult time and is doing pretty well considering the circumstances.

Alexa's hospitalization was due to an overdose of pills at a time of crippling depression and wants to help others who are suffering.

She wants to "help young girls with something I know a GREAT deal about: Heartbreak-Related Depression. Although it does not get much attention in our society, it is a very serious and painful condition that often gets swept under the carpet. I hope to bring this topic more to light."

Alexa is even going back to school for psychology, so she's legit!

Lots of luck!

Billy Joel And Christie Brinkley Set The Record Straight

| Filed under: Alexa Ray JoelChristie Brinkley

Many have been speculating and pointing fingers as to why Alexa Ray Joel may have attempted suicide.

And now, Alexa's parents are coming forward to put the rumors to rest by releasing a joint statement.

It reads:

Every parent can imagine the pain and anguish we face as parents of a daughter who is working to recover from the dangerous actions she took while suffering a devastating heartbreak.

As much as we hate dignifying tabloid stories with a response, we feel we must set the record straight to protect our family. The story that ran in the New York Post on December 8th, and has been subsequently spread across the Internet, is filled with vicious lies and attempts to smear our character and that of our beloved daughter.

We ask the public and legitimate media outlets to please "consider the source" and to not further exacerbate our daughter's situation by repeating and legitimizing these false reports.

With much appreciation,
Billy Joel & Christie Brinkley

There you have it. But what was the "real" reason behind it all then?

And more importantly, we hope she's receiving proper care by professionals.
