Katie Lee Joel - BFF Material

Katie Lee Joel, wife of Billy Joel, is my new favorite! I had heard of her of course, but never really paid attention until I watched her on Oprah this week. She is gorgeous, chic, seems very down to earth.....and loves to cook. She has a great closet too, not that it matters.....but......  

She was on Oprah promoting her new cookbook, The Comfort Table


She also gave us a tour of her West Village home, decorated by Oprah fave Nate Berkus. She is like a hot, young, hip version of Paula Deen...... without the excess butter. I can't wait to add her new book to my collection. I may even have try her Meat Loaf recipe on my husband this week!

I agree. She was adorable on Oprah when, after seeing Nate's makeover of Jerry O'connell's bachelor pad, she called him up and asking if he could do their house 'Do you do regular people's houses?". As if she and Billy Joel are 'regular people'. Love that.

And I liked what she said about Billy's daughter too. I'll buy that cookbook.

Thanks for the tip! Love cookbooks. Curiously, she looks a bit like a brunette Christy Brinkley.

She hosted Top Chef in its first season, and she was pretty wooden and boring. So I didn't get my hopes up when I saw that she'd be on Oprah. But she was adorable! I loved their home, and her style. I think she's trying to hit it big as a lifestyle chef ;)

I never watched her on top chef but when I saw her on Oprah I couldn't decide if she was adorable or annoying! I think the only reason I may have been slightly annoyed was because I was judging her for marrying a guy...a very famous one at that...who is 35 years older than her. Not fair. So now I think she's adorable. I might even buy her cookbook. And I love love love her house!

BTW-annechovie you are so right...she does kind of look like a brunette (and younger) Christie Brinkley!

I too thought the age difference was a little extreme (I'm 12 years younger than my husband which some people judge). But after seeing them together I think they work. Totally brunette Christy Brinkley. Hopefully she'll ages as well as Christy has!

I have never heard of her, but I love her already! Thanks for the post I will definitely be checking out her cookbook!
