NEW YORK: Was Alexa Ray Joel's suicide due to her parents' divorces?

Poor Alexa Ray Joel. Poor little rich uptown girl. She reportedly tried to commit suicide in New York yesterday by swallowing an overdose of pills. It is stunning to say the least.  What is even more astonishing, is the reason being given for the 22 year old giving up on life. According to sources, Ms. Joel has been having a tough time with her parents’  – Both mom Christie Brinkley and her dad Billy Joel — divorces
Wow. Here’s hoping Alexa recuperates soon and figures out that her parents are adults and she is not responsible for them. She is only responsible for herself at this point. And life is wonderful. Tough sometimes, lonely sometimes, but ultimately a truly wonderful gift that should never be toyed with by trying to kill oneself.
