Billy Joel's daughter, Alexa Ray, suicide attempt

I read about this on Saturday, but I guess she's out of the hospital now:

Hopefully she recovers well.

If Billy Joel was my father, I'd try to kill myself too.

I can't stand his music but that was a really sick thing to say. The man is probably going through hell right now.

Mental note: it's possible to be too edgy....

But wow...looking at the photos she looks like a living cariculture.

You gotta feel sorry for the kid. Her mother is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but she inherited her father's looks.

Those are definitely some scary looking photos.

Re: Billy Joel's daughter, Alexa Ray, suicide attempt

8 antihistamines is not a suicide attempt, it's a possibly spoiled girl wanting attention.

Hell 8 Ambien isn't a suicide attempt.

8 seconal or phenobarbital and you're talking suicide stuff.

I hope she gets her 'thing back in action' and pulled together either way.

She has a nice smile.

Wow, from that photo I would have guessed that she was 35, not 23.

She obviously takes her looks from her father's side of the family. There doesn't look to be any Christie Brinkley DNA anywhere in that face.

well you thought he would have did it for her at some point through the years if she ever rode in the car with him.


Hey I think she has her moms mouth, that looks similar.

Re: Billy Joel's daughter, Alexa Ray, suicide attempt

It was probably the pressure of being the daughter of a piano man and uptown girl.

She looks like she's got a decent body.

It's "The Downeaster Alexa," and no, it's just a bizarre coincidence.

Re: Billy Joel's daughter, Alexa Ray, suicide attempt

"Billy Joel remained in his Long Island home, a friend said. "Billy didn't go so it didn't become a circus atmosphere. He was in constant phone contact."

While i don't want to judge anyone's manner dealing with a personal tragedy, if my kid was in the hospital after trying to kill herself, i would move heaven and earth to be there.

"constant phone contact" gee, i hope he didn't incur any overage charges.

Re: Billy Joel's daughter, Alexa Ray, suicide attempt

I heard on the radio today that the pills she took were "homeopathic". Given that you can eat an entire bottle of homeopathic "medicine" in one sitting and have no ill effects whatsoever, it sounds to me like this was a cry for help rather than an actual suicide attempt.

i've known people in the counseling field and they say that any suicide attempt you live through is usually a cry for attention rather than a serious attempt
