Billy Joel

NY Restaurant State of Mind

6/16/2009 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy JoelA box of chocolates, a dozen roses ... or an Italian restaurant in the Hamptons -- not all gifts for the wife are created equal.

Sources tell us Billy Joel is looking to buy his wife Katie Lee the aforementioned Italian restaurant, and we're told he's eying a spot in Sag Harbour, NY.

Katie Lee, who is four years older than her stepdaughter Alexa Ray, is a chef in her own right and served as the first host of Bravo's "Top Chef."

And now a snippet from Billy's "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant"...

"A bottle of white, a bottle of red
Perhaps a bottle of rosé instead
We'll get a table near the street
In our old familiar place"

I think it would be nice for Billy Joel to have a Italian restaurant.

Yeah, Katie Lee has to be 4 years older (not younger) than Alexa Ray. If she was 4 years younger, she would be a teenager or at least only 20!!?? And they have been married a couple of years already. Billy married a much younger girl, but I don't think he married a teenager!! LOL

"Couldn't go back to the greasers
the best they could do was pick up their pieces
we always knew they would both find a way to get by"

Guess cheating on him wasn't enough to keep him from buying her a restaurant.

Sorry, but marrying someone younger than his daughter makes him a joke in the middle of a mid-life crisis. And wasn't she cheating on him not that long ago? And now she's getting a restaurant out of the deal? Celebrities can be so dumb!

Mr. Spaghetti is a wonderful example of the state of the American intellect in the 21st century. And we wonder why so many jobs are outsourced to India.

This is not the exclusive domain of celebs. Most men in ttheir 50's and 60's make fools of themselves over young girls.-- the extent of their stupidity is limited only by their bank accounts. They lose their self-respect at around age 45.

Seriously    

I love Billy but as most men he thinks marrying someone young also makes him young.
It just makes him look older and pathetic. Do you think she'd be with him without the millions??
Men are soooooo stupid.

Awesome song! Not to sound morbid, but I want that played at my funeral.
And who cares how old his wife is? Life is too short to bad mouth
everything everybody does! If he's happy, that's all that matters. Period!

yeah....and?    

Edumacated is right on.

As most of us age, we don't look so good. Some us look very bad, like Billy. His woman is so in for the cash. He won't be with us soon and she'll wait it out, be a young woman still, probaly in the prime of sexual being, and she can get a new younger dude to actually have sex with.

Because, lets not fool oursleves here, would you touch him? Even if you HAD to? Most of these old with cash are just gross. If you didn't start off with them, married for years, its a little easier I think, to be hot for his bones when they age. But.....to hook up with some old dude when I'm 25! no way.

Women who hook up with these old fools, give themsleves away. Ya, honey, its love.
