EXCLUSIVE Get out the smelling salts! Alexa Ray Joel, ever a trooper, is coming back to Cafe Carlyle. Alexa fainted on her last night at the Cafe back on April 14th, cutting short her triumphant two week gig.An ambulance took her over to Lenox Hill Hospital.
Now the talented daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, I can tell you, will return to Cafe Carlyle from June 24th to June 28th and pick up where she left off. She could start with a cover of Tommy Roe’s “Dizzy.”
As it turned out, Alexa’s fainting spell was much ado about nothing– just a common faint. But nerves and exhaustion will do that to you. She was otherwise very funny every night, and her musicianship comes naturally. She’s very gifted. If anything, she should be writing a Broadway musical. She can do it.
PS All those crazy stories about plastic surgery were ridiculous. She had her nose done. Big deal. Nothing else. Let’s get back to the music.
