| Filed under: Film FlickersAlexa Ray JoelChristie Brinkley


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."

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.

Blame Brinkley?

| Filed under: Sad SadAlexa Ray JoelChristie Brinkley


Ouch! This is pretty harsh!

It seems that a nine day vacation to Turks and Caicos with her mother, Christie Brinkley, and half siblings Sailor and Jack led Alexa Ray Joel to attempt suicide!

She may have already been depressed from her breakup with musician Jimmy Riot, but it was the constant fighting of the past few days that put her over the edge.

Alexa and her mother have had a rocky past and continually fight over her father, Billy Joel. Christie will constantly bash Joel in front of Alexa, while forcing her to defend him.

"They have knock-down, drag-out fights regularly over issues relating to Billy Joel," said a source close to the family. "She would tell Alexa that her father was an alcoholic and that she had her father's genes and that she might be an alcoholic, too."

And Brinkley would always be on Alexa about her weight!

According to a former family employee, Brinkley demonstrated to a 10-year-old Alexa, "This is how you eat a brownie without gaining weight," while she chewed the baked good and spit it in the trash.

But, her mother claims to never have seen the suicide attempt coming!

"She [Brinkley] stated that the victim had no health problem, and that she was not aware of how she [Joel] had been feeling," said the police report.

Alexa is said to be staying with her father and canceled her scheduled performance at the New York Stock Exchange's Christmas-tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday.

"Alexa is feeling much better. She is with her family and looking forward to getting back on track," said her rep.

We sure hope so!!!

Alexa Ray Joel May Have Been Upset Over Fight With BF

| Filed under: Sad SadAlexa Ray Joel


After attempting suicide over the weekend, some sources are saying that Alexa Ray Joel was upset over an argument she had with her boyfriend.

Supposedly she took Traumeel, a homeopathic medication, and 911 was called after she became worried about breathing.

The musician has since been released from the hospital and is said to be with her father Billy Joel, who was a no-show when Alexa was in the hospital!

Alexa Ray is no stranger to relationship problems as she has frequently spoken about them to the public. Back in August she wrote on her MySpace page:

"UGH!!! MEN!!! Is anybody else finding it a difficult "dating world" out there? I'm so terrible at dating – I don't know if I'll ever get used to it! And I HATE the game-playing! Can't stand it.

I live in the greatest city in the world and I can't seem to meet an interesting guy who also happens to be NICE. Go figure… "

She also told PEOPLE magazine last year of her break-up with former bass player Jimmy Riot:

"I can get very dark. I can get very in my own head and depressed as many other artists can. I was crying all day. I thought how am I going to put on a show.

"[But] the minute I got out there, it was the best show. I thought I was going to break down, and suddenly this energy with all the emotion was just pouring out."

Channeling those emotions through music is healthy, but nobody is worth taking your life over!

We hope Alexa is receiving the help and support she needs!
