Mother Knows Best! CHRISTIE PLAN­NING ALEXA’S WED­DING

Life & Style Weekly - - Hollywood Heartbeat -

Alexa Ray Joel is in a mar­i­tal state of mind, and Billy Joel and Christie Brink­ley’s daugh­ter has a per­fect part­ner to plan her big day with: her mom. “She has the most ex­quis­ite taste, but she’s not too pushy,” Alexa, 32, told Life & Style at Bella New York’s Beauty Cover launch party on May 29. “She’s like, ‘Take your time, do it at your own pace.’ My mom knows best, so I do de­fer to her for de­tails.” Restau­ra­teur Ryan Glea­son popped the ques­tion to Alexa and they an­nounced their en­gage­ment on New Year’s Day. Now, they’re hard at work fig­ur­ing out when and where to say “I do.” “[Ryan and I are] both such New York­ers, so we def­i­nitely want to plan some­thing in New York City,” Alexa says. “We joke that we want a wed­ding plan­ner like Martin Short in Fa­ther of the Bride!” But who needs him when you have Mom? “I don’t want to be too pushy,” Christie, 64, tells Life & Style. “I’m wait­ing for them to give me the cue that it’s time to jump into high gear!”
