Since then, she has shared what it is like. you are no longer interested in looking at your weight and that she is “done with the scales”.
The last few years have not been easy for Bertinelli and he has battled through many heartbreaks. She divorced Tom Vitale, whom she married in 2011, and is still grieving the loss of her ex-husband, rocker Eddie Van Halen, who died of throat cancer in 2020. Despite all of this, Bertinelli has struggled to be honest about what she’s going through, particularly her weight fluctuations. “I’m still holding on to this weight because it protects me because I’m going through a lot of challenges,” he said in the past.
We commend Bertinelli’s optimism and for taking the fans along for the ride. One fan wrote it best in the comments section: “You got it, Valerie!”
