One Nose Job Is Enough Plastic Surgery For Alexa Ray Joel

Alexa Ray Joel is turning over a new leaf. Hospitalized after taking Traumeel, a homeopathic medication, in December, Alexa Ray tells PEOPLE she’s feeling much better–inside and out. The 24-year-old singer underwent rhinoplasty earlier this month, and says she’s overjoyed by the results. “I was thinking about getting this for years,” says Joel. Her nose, she adds, “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.” But the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley says she’s done with plastic surgery. Says Joel, “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.” As for the timing of the surgery–just four months after her overdose scare following a breakup–Joel says this was the right time for her. “Would it have been smart to get this procedure last year?” she asks. “No. I didn’t know who I was.” And now? “I feel really good.”–Rennie Dyball and Liza Hamm

What a lie! It’s just like the media to give a bad name to remedies other than drugs. My bet is that Traumeel is not what hospitalized her. There’s no way it would have caused anything like that. She was on some sort of drug. I thought I read that it was attempted suicide. Stop blaming harmless things and confess to what really happened.

S in CA – why would they lie about that?


Aw. that is sad that people are attacking her looks for no reason… she can’t help who her parents are and I think she is cute!

As long as she thinks she’s pretty, that’s all that matters.

But ehhhh…

If you can’t see the natural beauty that this girl has, you must be blind. Christy Brinkley has her own looks. Her daughter is GORGEOUS!
