One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
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.
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."
