“They’re spending a lot of time together,” a source told Page Six in April. She rarely goes out to spend time [with Joel] and instead stays in the city near Yigal.” “She even leaves her dogs at his showroom. Other sources said at the time that Joel — who has been on tour — was being told by friends to ditch his much younger wife when the tour ends in August, but apparently he had had enough. I don’t want to say anything.” Joel married Katie Lee in a lavish wedding in October 2004 at his home in Oyster Bay, LI, after they had been dating for a year. His daughter from his previous marriage to supermodel Christie Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel — who is just four years younger than Katie Lee — served as maid of honor. While the West Virginia-born beauty could easily have lived off her hubby’s wealth, she stayed busy as a “professional foodie,” hosting the first season of Bravo’s “Top Chef” reality program and putting out her own cookbook.
Her father admitted recently that he tried to commit suicide in his early 20s by drinking furniture polish.
