She'll be really surprised, so long as she doesn't read any newspapers or watch television, or talk to anyone who does.

I saw him the other day in Greenport.He looks like a 5'2 60 yearold overweight fat guy with a pot belly..What could he possibly have in common with a 27 year old?That would be like me dating my daughter.Think it could be his money?????

Hellooo...I was thinking the same thing. Weren't his plans to buy this house in Newsday within the past 4-8 weeks.

If ignorance is bliss, then she has got to be the happiest woman on the planet. Then again, having access to millions upon millions of dollars can't be too shabby either.

Now I grew up in Flushing, but your post is filled with so many grammatical errors, and is not understandable at all that I am ashamed for you.

Small town out there -rumors were flying that supposedly she was growing somewhat unhappy in the marriage. A mansion as a surprised gift is certainly distracting.....

I would like to think she is not a gold digger - but as I said - it is a small town. Hope they are just rumors. Billy is great for Long Island - want the best for him!

Perhaps it is what it is. Obviously this relationship is fulfilling a need for both of them. So therefore who is anyone else to judge.

Hummer: Whad you say? Didn't get a word out of it.

Anon: What's a 27-year-old girl see in a 52-year-old songwriter/singer who is probably the best and best-known entertainer in this hemisphere? What's not to love! And stay away from your daughter, you perv!

Joseph: Never do nuttin' nice for a woman? What a lonely existence you must live.

Taryn McKinney: Of the Park Avenue McKinney's, I presume. A facelift and hair transplant may run in YOUR family, dear, but BILLY JOEL is his own man. I have met him a few times at our annual Sea Cliff Mini-Mart street fair and he's congenial, down-to-earth and a fun guy to be with or near. Maybe you will glimpse him, honey, if you hang around his new house in Sagaponack. But don't try to be a groupie or else Katie Lee might scratch your eyes out.

Yan: A goldigger? You New Jersey folk all think the same way. Don't you have ANY original thoughts, huh?

Helen: You have the most sober, sympathetic and salient comment of this thread. Thank you for your compassion and good wishes for this nice couple.

Billy Joel is a fine fellow and Katie Lee a devoted wife and lover.
