Billy Joel's Daughter

'Feeling Much Better'

12/7/2009 4:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Alexa Ray JoelAlexa Ray Joel, daughter of Billy Joel, is home from the hospital and "feeling much better," a rep tells TMZ.

Alexa was rushed to the hospital this weekend after authorities received a 911 call from her Manhattan apartment.

But her rep tells us, "She is with her family and looking forward to getting back on track."

Alexa herself added, "I want to thank everyone for their outpouring of love and support."

The rep also said it was Alexa that called 911 and not a roommate as some outlets had reported.

She's too young to be worried about finding love. Don't try so hard and love will happen. As you get older, the love you find will be solid & strong. She's naturally beautiful, not the surgeon enhanced run of the mill celebrity with duck lips & balloons for boobs. Be strong, be yourself.

cries for help should be called cries for help.....not suicide attempts. She took 8 pills of Traumeel. hardly a suicide attempt and anyone with 3 brain cells left would know Traumeel wont kill ya. It IS Great stuff tho for bruises and soreness. its homeopathic so its energetic rather than a "drug". nope....nothing in there is deadly in any manner. So i cant understand that she is "feeling much better". From WHAT? because she didnt get ill from taking any pills. Feels better because everyone is paying attention to her for bad behavior.

We care about her because we are hopefully compassionate humans and growing up is difficult enough when you are not in a fishbowl. Alexa is a sparkling, open, sweetheart and this was a big growing pain. She is aware of her privilege and I don't believe has ever complained about her parent's fame. I'm sure she will ultimately be educated as to how cruel people can really be with the help of many embittered bloggers out there but their misery will be what is revealed most of all.

How about a little impartial journalism TMZ??? Why are you (of all places) the ONLY outlet not reporting this as a suicide attempt, or at the very least, a cry for attention? Don't give me the "unverified facts or responsible journalism" crap. If a martian claimed to have slept with Tiger Woods it would be splashed all over the front page. Why are some people dragged through the mud relentlessly while others get a free pass? Why do you take the high road with some people and stoop low as the depths of hell with others? Makes you wonder...

A cry for help and attention. She doesnt have talent or looks for show business so this upsets her. Poor thing needs everyone's support.

Umm, maybe Billy boy and Christie should have been parents and notBFF's with their daughter, revealing all the lurid crap going ontheir pathetic D-list lives and making her play counselor for them! I hope she cuts the cord with both of them and starts to live her ownlife. Sounds like she is on her way professionally.

She needs to realize finding a man should come 2nd or 3rd on the "todo" list right now--at a minimum. Get happy with yourself and yoursituation in life before trying to find love again. Frankly, her lastboyfriend didn't look like much, I am sure she can and will do better. It doesn't help having a mother who has married 3 or is it 4 times--obviously puts a high importance in her life--and a father who married a girl basically her age. Doesn't get much more warped than that.

Well, between all of her Mom's drama and ditto for her Dad, I think she should throw both of them under the bus. I notice another article said she was staying with her Dad. Rumors abound that the Brinkley household is full of tension. Maybe there is something to that. Personally I think her Mom is the one who needs help.

Actually almost everyone who eventually dies from suicide has made a prior attempt and it is a huge mistake to dismiss them as manipultive. If they are cries for help - then hey how about getting them some help?

Most suicidal individuals give some warning of their intentions. The most effective way to prevent a friend or loved one from taking his or her life is to recognize the factors that put people at risk for suicide, take warning signs seriously and know how to respond.
Know the Facts

PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS

More than 90 percent of people who kill themselves are suffering from one or more psychiatric disorders, in particular:

* Major depression (especially when combined with alcohol and/or drug abuse)
* Bipolar depression
* Alcohol abuse and dependence
* Drug abuse and dependence
* Schizophrenia
* Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
* Eating disorders
* Personality disorders

Depression and the other mental disorders that may lead to suicide are -- in most cases -- both recognizable and treatable. Remember, depression can be lethal.
