Valerie Bertinelli - I Will Spend Rest Of My Life ALONE

“I am gonna be more than happy to be happily divorced and spend the rest of my life alone,” she said. "I'll be happy that way. Well, with my six cats and my dog and my son, and hopefully one day grandchildren."

I'm sure you Single Gays Over 50 can relate to what Val is saying - right?

You can be relatively happy being single, and it's preferably to staying in an unhappy or unsatisfying relationship. Mind you it's best to be in a happy, content stable relationship but when that is not an option, being single works. You can life alone without being lonely. Have hobbies and routines that make a satisfying lifestyle. See friends and relatives regularly. If you don't have friends, try to attend social groups or events in your neighborhood where you can potentially make freneds, or at least amiable acquaintances.

(^.^) agreed and with that attitude Valerie will be. Self-fulfilling prophecy. Over 50 here and though I don't currently have a partner I have 3 FWB ages 31-48 and don't know if I'll ever have a long term relationship though those were few and far between all during my life and some friends of mine do and others never wanted a long term partner.

She's delightful. She's been in toxic marriages. I ended up in a relationship late in life. My partner and I are both old and fat. Had 3 cats, but they all got old and died. I expected to be alone and with many cats. I raised my nephew, who is now 35 and married. They live on another continent. They can't have kids, which is unfortunate for them. They don't want to adopt. Fine with me. Partner and I have no other living relatives and we just assume that when one of us goes, the other will be alone. Planning to acquire multiple cats. She'd be a great neighbor.

R50 I just turned 30 years old.

If it helps to know--I'm quiet and bookish, had a sheltered lower-income upbringing, went to a selective high-pressure school on a scholarship with a lot of rich(er) kids and was excluded by them, had few friends and didn't cope with it well. Dropped out of University a year early due to nervous breakdown, and stayed underemployed ever since. Also, my wider family-of-origin estranged from me before I turned 15 (land/money dispute, me and my parents got cut off). Have been avoidant and emotionally 'down' for the better part of a decade (I was in isolation years before COVID made it cool).. The last friend/potential partner I had was back in 2013, and our parting was bitter; I made no other friends in College, as I was wandering around in a numb, fugue state. As a result, my physical health has taken a hit as well as my emotional/mental; my eating and sleeping habits are disordered, to say the least.

Hence the aversion to intimacy, or at least that's my best guess. Sorry to offload, this sounds like a lot of snowflake bitching, and I'm shamefacedly aware of that, but it's the only way I can explain or account for my strange existence. It's funny; they say knowing what your issues are is half the battle, but while I have gotten a little more open and vulnerable with time, and doing work in therapy, I'm still not in a position to be in a relationship, platonic or romantic. I can't even offer the basics of financial stability/security, social energy, or emotional equilibrium. My mother is in bits, thinking that I'll always be alone, and end up with no-one to be with after she & my Dad pass and my sister marries into another family (though I'm white and our family isn't religious or homophobic, so this isn't cultural).

It's also weird and curious how a person can adjust to self-imposed isolation. There are days I don't even mind it, and feel a kind of contentment in it. This isn't meant in a pitiful way--maybe some people are better off alone.

There are tons of lonely divorced men over 50 looking for companionship, and that's what it is at that age.

I grew up in the suburbs and part of the reason we didn't go to fast food was they weren't close by and on every corner. And of course the portion sizes were small. Even the junk food we ate did not have all of the transfats and fake sugar that does a number on the body.

R73, that’s right. Many older women absolutely love being single again. My late aunt positively blossomed after her husband died. She took up painting, traveled with the other widows in her widow support group, went out to eat at ethnic restaurants and stayed up late and did a whole bunch of things she always wanted to do. She shook a few of his friends loose; she didn’t care for the wives but felt pressure to socialize as a couple with other couples.

Of course you do lose the couple friends anyway (as when you divorce) because other women are trying to hang on to their men.

Agree with this (he has a widow, Val) except the last sentence. Eddie seemed hard to get along with. A long time ago (while Val & Eddie were married), there was a National Enquirer article that had photos of Eddie with a blonde woman that looked like a girlfriend. The marriage lasted years after that article.

by Anonymousreply 85June 11, 2022 5:28 PM

I like Valerie. I'm younger than her, but I feel like I watched her grow up because I watched reruns of her sitcom. I read her bio a few years back. Everyone used to be impressed that she and Eddie were married so long, but there were obviously problems in their marriage. He was an alcoholic with severe social anxiety. He had built a recording studio in their back yard, and he stayed their drinking and playing his guitar most of the time, event at night. And eventually she was fine leaving him out there. It's not too much different from married men who play video games all day, but Eddie was able to earn a lot of money from his hobby.

He cheated, and the woman's husband contacted Valerie to let her know. Valerie said she was mad at the husband (the messenger). Eventually a woman took pictures of Eddie nude, covering up his modesty with a guitar, and sold the pics to the tabloids.

I read Sammy Hagar's book (which is available for free on the Internet). He told a story where Eddie showed up to the studio one day in the early 90s with a new crew cut hair style. In one of his drunken episodes, he had shaved his head. He was also crying that his wife hated him.

I cringed when I read Valerie's tweet after Eddie's death: "I'm so grateful Wolfie and I were able to hold you in your last moments. I will see you in our next life my love." At the time, Eddie's own widow was also grieving his death and Valerie herself was married to another man. It kind of seemed attention seeking. Some thoughts are better kept private.

Eddie was a genius, but he had a horrible personality. He alienated every other musician who played in his band, except for his enabling brother. Finally he pushed longtime bass player Michael Anthony out of the band and replaced him with Wolfgang. Worse, the tour T-shirt featured a classic album cover that had been photoshopped to replace Michael Anthony's photo with Wolfgang's photo. Many fans found this to be unforgivable. But Eddie only trusted family.

Poor Wolfgang. He's a very good musician himself. He probably had no choice; music was probably the only way Eddie could relate to anyone, and maybe Wolfgang felt like it was the only way he could earn his dad's acceptance. Maybe Wolfgang inherited his dad's addiction gene, except it manifested itself in the form of food addiction instead of alcohol addiction. To Eddie's credit, it doesn't look like he ever shamed Wolfgang because of his size; he was obviously proud to have Wolfgang standing on stage with him during their concerts. Fortunately, he has Valerie's personality, but he also has her dramatic side, often fighting on social media with people who call him "fat" or criticize him for nepotism. Obviously his name has opened a lot of doors for him in his musical career. And he inherited a lot of money from his dad, so he's had no trouble getting a girlfriend, in spite of his weight.

The original Rainbow Flag is all inclusive because you can synthesize every color from the colors of the rainbow. White, which arises from all colors together, isn't there, nor is black or brown, which you can reach by adjusting the light intensity. The original flag was meant to mean "the whole spectrum".

I always liked her and envied her life, but she seems self-obsessed and it’s tiresome. She also has ALWAYS had terrible taste in fashion. The old lady fluttery rayon blouses don’t do her any favors. She looks in the mirror too much. For years I only had mirrors from the chest up so I wouldn’t be depressed at the full figure. I can’t imagine being that obsessed at age 60. She must be getting therapy and anti-depressants but it’s not working.

I think Mack wound up being a better and more stable person than Valerie in her sixties BECAUSE her substance abuse issues were so bad. In order to get and stay sober, you have to do work on yourself and one of the first things you have to acknowledge is that in the grand scheme of things, you are not special.

I'm not saying everybody in recovery is anywhere near perfect, but they do have to learn how to own their shit and stop blaming everyone and everything but themselves for their disappointments in life. Valerie has yet to learn this.

Then she goes on the poor me widow tour while she’s still married to this guy and EVH has an actual WIDOW who has remained silent? He probably was sick of being the Diana to her Camilla / Charles ideology of a relationship. She started doing the food network shows and clearly didn’t get the memo not to really eat the food she makes. Bitch blew up quicker than a gas station it’s a cigarette.

Valerie's one of those Hollywood types who coasted from job to job by being young and hot, but being more of a "personality" than having great acting talent. She's now at the age where there's a lot fewer acting roles and those roles are going to women who can actually act.

Where the hell do you get this shit? No way was Valarie Bertinelli ever a groupie, let alone a rock'n'roll whore. VB never serial dated rockstars. I swear some of you posters literally pull shit out of your asses.

It's apparent, Eddie was her one true love and she's depressed. Some people cannot let go of certain relationships. Eddie chose alcohol, drugs and cigarettes over his wife and son.

You seem fucking clueless. It's amazing how so many posters here seem to have no clue about the backstories of the celebrities they post about.

If he was her manager, most likely he was paid his commissions as they were earned. Val owned her house years before they met, and was smart enough to have a prenup- which he now doesn't want to abide by.

That he's money grubbing now is pathetic.

How rich men can thwart a golddigger: Step 1: Get a vasectomy but keep it quiet. Step 2. Tell her you don't want children and see if she'll agree. Step 3. After she agrees have her sign a fool proof pre-nup. Step 4: Marry her. Step 5. At a proper time casually mention about the vasectomy. Step 6. Wait to see if she'll run for the door and enjoy listening to whatever fanciful excuse she gives.

R252, who said Val was a selfish bitch? He agreed to a prenup, and since CA is a community property state, he is entitled to any assets gained during the marriage. Just as she is- assuming he made anything. If he's asking for $600k a year, it's doubtful.

Not comparable to Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch. She married a billionaire beast 25 years older. Tom and Val are about the same age.

Wonder what this Public Relations language means. Perhaps Valerie eventually got bored with this very bland man and found nothing interesting to hang onto?

"Valerie and Tom's split has not been easy.

In her book Enough Already: Learning to Love the Way I Am Today, Bertinelli described her parting from Vitale as slow and painful.

'We have drifted from the interests that made us a couple and found that those differences can't be fixed,' she said.

'He is a good man who is going through many of the same issues that I have faced: What can he do to add meaning and purpose to his life?

'Where can he find joy? What is he passionate about? What has he learned? And what does he do differently going forward? The paths we thought we were on changed'."

This is Valerie:

"Eddie had purchased Valerie a gold bar the size of a pendant while undergoing cancer treatment in Germany.

The rocker requested to speak with her privately on Thanksgiving Day in 2019 and gave her the touching gift after they went to a friend's car to talk.

'I hope you don't think it's weird, you know, that I bought my ex-wife this gift and didn't get my wife anything,' Eddie said with tears in his eyes. 'I just love you.'"

Got you a present but not my wife. I just love you.

WTF. For her to tell this story publicly, whether it's true or not, is such a passive-aggressive gloat at Eddie's second wife, a fuck-you to her second husband, and makes Eddie look like a disloyal asshole. Who needs to know this? To prove to everyone that SHE was Eddie's true love? I don't think she loved him, he was her trophy and after he died she lost that hope that one day he'd get back together with her. She'll be yapping, "I was Ed's soul mate," for the rest of her life.
