Supermodel Christie Brinkley's father convinced the ageless beauty she could wow Broadway critics as Roxie Hart in Chicago.

The former wife of Billy Joel will hit the stage as the murderer in April and she admits she was initially reluctant to sign on for the role - until her dad convinced her to go for it.

She says, "My dad has always guided me throughout my career. Generally, whenever I wonder if I can do something, he says, 'Why not?'

"My dad is very ill and he has a hard time talking and I was saying to him, 'Dad, you know I'm gonna have to dance and learning all these steps (sic) an...

Former supermodel Christie Brinkley has begged gossips and bloggers to stop criticizing her singer daughter Alexa Ray Joel for her looks, insisting she's just as "exotic" and "gorgeous" as Italian acting icon Sophia Loren.

Joel, the blonde beauty's daughter with rocker Billy Joel, is frequently targeted by cruel critics online, and underwent a nose job in April to improve her looks and correct a deviated septum.

But Brinkley is angry at the constant stream of disparaging comments directed at the 24 year old and has called on bloggers to have some compassion.

Celebrities That Look Great Over The Years

October 14th, 2009 10:29am EDT
celebs that look great over the years
In Hollywood, looking a day over 25 is a liability. And then there are the celebrity faces that have been botoxed to the point that their foreheads have become unnatural plains of shiny, flat skin. The message in Hollywood is clear: young and perky equals good; saggy and old equals bad.

This debasing assessment is generally more applicable to women than it is to men, whose aging process garners descriptions like "sugar daddy," "distinguished grey," and "silver fox." Society bids women to believe that in order to be considered beautiful and desirable, they must be cellulite, sag, and wri...

Will The Candidates' Celebrity Supporters Have Any Impact On The Presidential Election?

Barack Obama
Celebrities have long made their political affiliations known, to both the disgruntlement and delight of fans. They've turned on-air time into opportunities to express distaste for our current administration; they've used their fame to help their chosen candidates. Like it or not, some celebrities never turn down a chance to talk politics. And, like it or not, the public often listens.

Politicians have shown their discontent with glitterati appearing in front of Congress (Julia Roberts, Christie Brinkley, Michael J. Fox and even Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys have just done th...
