Just like mom Christie Brinkley was back in 1986, Alexa Ray is the new Prell girl!

What a comeback! Alexa Ray Joel, 24, has signed a deal to appear in both print and TV ads that will feature her music, according to the New York Post.

What a HUGE turnaround for her! The singer-songwriter daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley attempted to commit suicide on Dec. 5 by taking a handful of homeopathic pain relievers. She was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital in NYC. She has since announced it was a result of “heartbreak-related depression,” stemming from a breakup with rocker Jimmy Riot.

“I am so excited and honored to be named the new face of Prell — especially following in the footsteps of my mother, who was a Prell girl,” said Alexa. Mom Christie was the face of the hair care product in 1986, famously calling it “my body building system for hair.”

A spokeswoman for Alexa added, “This is Alexa’s first ad campaign. It is for print and TV for spring and summer. We will also shoot a fall campaign.”

On her Facebook page on Dec. 31, Alexa wrote that she had “many exciting new developments for the New Year” and “this includes new creative project”…we are guessing this may be what she was talking about!

It sounds like Alexa Ray is really turning her life around, and getting over her depression. Congrats Alexa!
