Lindsay Lohan’s New Billy Joel Tattoo Proclaims She Is In “The Prime Of My Life”

Lindsay Lohan decided to get some new ink this week. And so she headed over to Shamrock Tattoos and had them tattoo a quote from Billy Joel’s “I Go To Extremes” on her side, in almost exactly the same place LeAnn Rimes tried out a tattoo of Eddie Cibrian’s wedding vows. So what does Lindsay’s new tatt say? “”Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife I feel like I’m in the prime of my life.” Well, that’s one way to think about it. This is of course in addition to the tattoo she got last year of a quote from Marilyn Monroe, “Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle.” Meanwhile, Megan Fox wants her Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed. These celebs are so confusing. [TMZ, People] Keep reading »

Alexa Ray Joel, Evangelist For “Heartbreak-Related Depression”

When songstress Alexa Ray Joel landed in the hospital after trying to OD on a handful of homeopathic pain pills in her NYC apartment, our hearts went out to her. Joel, 24, was apparently distraught over her breakup with band mate Jimmy Riot, 38, and swallowed the pills in a “cry for attention.” And no matter how famous your parents are—in Alexa’s case, Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley—breakups always make you feel like s**t. The good news is Joel is finding positive ways to work through her issues: She’s writing songs and she told New York Daily News she is at work on a project to teach “young girls with something I feel I know a great deal about: heartbreak-related depression.” Wait—what? Don’t nearly all breakups cause “heartbreak-related depression,” especially if you’re on the being-dumped side of things? Keep reading »

The Financial Acumen Of Trophy Wives

Trophy wives: there are few things to say about their morals, but their financial acumen is unimpeachable, says Daily Beast blogger (and former NY Daily News gossip columnist) Johanna Piazza.

Piazza figures that women like Katie Lee Joel, Anna Nicole Smith, Marla Maples and Heather Mills are only wives to men decades their senior for a few years. They’re stinkin’ rich divorceés, however, for the rest of their lives. A younger woman who shacks up with an old fart will suffer “bimbo” or “whore” name-calling left and right, but she’s actually quite savvy for parlaying a short-term investment as a Mrs. into long-term benefits as an Ex. (Courtesy of a generous pre-nup, that is.)

That’s quite a theory. But her point still doesn’t make me think Katie Lee and Billy are any less obnoxious. What do you guys think? [Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Marrying A Much Older Man Made Me A Better Person

Billy Joel and his wife of nearly five years Katie Lee are splitting up. A “friend” of the couple told the New York Daily News that the age difference of 33 years drove the couple apart. I doubt it. Maybe, like so many couples that end up divorced, they just weren’t meant to be. You never hear anyone say “Dick and Jane are the same age—that must have had something to do with their breakup.” I call BS on blaming the age difference when it comes to divorce. Though, admittedly, I’m biased. Older men and younger women? Keep reading »

Katie Lee Joel And Other People Who’ve Disappeared Off The Face Of TV

After almost five years of marriage, Katie Lee Joel and Billy Joel (ahem, William) have filed for divorce. Now Katie Lee, who is 33 years younger than her soon-to-be ex, will disappear even further into the sunset. You probably don’t even remember that she was once the host of “Top Chef.” Yeah, I didn’t think so. That’s because she only hosted for one season, and viewers complained that she was too robotic. “Top Chef” won—they replaced Katie with Padma Lakshmi, who we love except for the fact that she eats and eats and never seems to gain any weight. But Katie isn’t alone. Check out these former TV hosts who were replaced right before their shows got epically popular. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: A Real Housewife Has A Sex Tape

Reason #4567 To Hate GOOP

I usually find the “MAKE” editions of GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow’s newsletter that attempts to “nourish the inner aspect,” the most tolerable. They’re recipes and how offensive and annoying can food really be? This week, Gwyneth introduces us to the cookie and treat recipes from some of her friends, including Evi, a Holocaust survivor, and Katie Lee Joel. Of the latter, Gwyneth writes:

“The summer before last, a mutual friend brought the lovely Katie Lee Joel and her husband William over for dinner. Much to my delight, she brought a fresh batch of these cookies with her.”

Wait. Hold up. “Her husband William?” Don’t you mean Billy? As in, BILLY JOEL? Is this Gwyneth’s attempt at not namedropping? Because that would be effing stupid, considering GOOP is one big celebrity snog fest. Seriously, what a pretentious twat.

Oh also, big old error in the last bit of this week’s newsletter. See above — guess someone forget to include the copy for next week’s preview, and Gwyneth, ever the diligent editor, didn’t notice it was missing either. Oopsies! What will William and his lovely wife Katherine say? [GOOP] Keep reading »

Dina Lohan To Be Honored As A Mother Of The Year

A mommy website is honoring Dina Lohan as one of its mothers of the year — not because she’s done a good job as a parent to her children, but because she’s from Long Island! “We’re just honoring celebrity moms on Long Island,” a spokesperson for MinglingMoms.com said. “It’s something for Mother’s Day. It’s a list of mothers from Long Island who have raised superstar children.” Other mothers being honored are Carol Baldwin (mother to the Baldwin brothers), Billy Joel’s mom, Natalie Portman’s mom, Mariah Carey’s mom, and Jennifer Lopez (who gave birth to her twins in L.I.). This is the dumbest award ever. [WENN] Keep reading »
