Let’s walk through this. Does it make sense that Katie Lee Joel might seek the companionship of another man in the city while her husband, Billy, is hiding out in Long Island? Sure. Does her BFF, designer Yigal Azrouël, seem like a likely person to fill that role? Okay, yeah. Does the visual combination of Yigal and Katie Lee together seem to make a lot more sense than the visual of Katie Lee and Billy together? Of course.
But what everyone forgets, including the people who planted this gossip item about Katie Lee and Yigal maybe having an affair, is the invisible ingredient in that picture of her and Billy. Love. Because in the richly dressed salad of Katie Lee Joel’s life, love is the secret ingredient that got her a superstar husband, fame, and fortune. She did it all for love, people. It’s the salt on the lettuce.
