Just when you think that a celebrity divorce will be the last you see of that celeb, Valerie Bertinelli hits you with a new tell-all book (Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time). On her book tour, Valerie made a stop by Oprah (and you get a book…). She told Oprah that part of the breakdown of her marriage to Eddie Van Halen (EVH) mutual infidelity. Whaaa? She’s an adorable TV and made-for-TV movie actress. She’s not supposed to cheat. She also went on to tell the Great O that EVH was the one that wanted to take it slow. That he wanted to meet her dad before they slept together.
We’re pretty sure that every celebrity divorce should include a gag order. EVH can really lose a lot of street cred if his sweetness came to light. And she can lose some of her cuteness as a cheater. We know that Jenny Craig is tolerant of fringe religions from its spokeswomen but we’re not too sure about unfaithfulness.
And we’re hoping and praying that Valerie was not the reason that Van Halen broke up. We would never forgive her if she had something going with Sammy Hagar.
