Valerie Bertinelli is saying “valerie morgulis” to her marriage to Tom Vitale. (Sorry, we’ve been rewatching “Game of Thrones.”)
Bertinelli, 61, filed in LA Wednesday, per TMZ, who first reported the news. The “Hot in Cleveland” actress married Vitale on New Year’s Day in 2011 and now cites the Ol’ Faithful of celebrity divorces — “irreconcilable differences” — as the reason for the split.
From the looks of things, it should be a fairly clean break: The couple do not have children together, her filing requested that neither of them receive spousal support going forward, and they had a prenuptial agreement in place to handle the division of assets.
Bertinelli met financial planner and entrepreneur Vitale — also CEO of e-commerce company Veebow — in 2004 and got engaged in March of 2010.
She was famously married to guitar legend Eddie Van Halen from 1981 to 2001. (Their divorce was finalized in 2007.) But the “One Day at a Time” remained close to Eddie, sharing a trove of sweet memories from their time together when he died in October 2020 after a long battle with cancer. The shredder even attended Bertinelli and Vitale’s wedding.
In an AARP Magazine feature, Vitale revealed that he met Bertinelli through her brother Patrick and that he was similarly coming into the relationship fresh off his own divorce. “Val and I were coming from a tough time and wanting to move on but didn’t want to trust anyone,” he said.
Bertinelli had a son, Wolfgang, from her marriage to Van Halen, while Vitale had four children of his own from his previous marriage. “It’s not easy,” Bertinelli said of working at their blended-family lifestyle. “I’m looking forward to being an empty nester.”
