Valerie Bertinelli

Valerie Bertinelli received her Hollywood Walk of Fame star in August of this year. And it's about time. We loved her in One Day at a Time, as Gloria on Touched by an Angel, in several TV movies, and now as Melanie on Hot in Cleveland. Valerie is also the proud mom of Van Halen (and touring Tremonti) bassist, Wolfgang Van Halen.

Valerie recently published a book titled One Dish At a Time with over 100 recipes from her Italian heritage. She is also the author of Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time and Finding It: And Finally Satisfying My Hunger for Life.

What is Valerie Bertinelli reading?

On Sunday, Valerie tweeted, "Been reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn all day. Wow. Freaking wow."

Book description from amazon.com:
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?
With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller.

Of course I'm a big fan of Val because she was once married to the guy who made me pick up a guitar and say, "How the heck did he do that?"

I'm still trying to figure that out 10 + years later, btw. :-)

Then Ed went all rock and roll on her ... I actually think she has been the more successful of the two since they split. Although, I really love the newest Van Halen album. Definitely got back to their roots a little.

I'll leave you with: Rock on! :-D

Christina Lee said...

YAY Valerie! I have been hearing SO MUCH about Gone Girl!

DEZMOND said...

she's lovely on that bookcover! She's the weakest link in HOT IN CLEVELAND, but is still very cute and charming.

EJ- And they have a talented son together! I saw Wolfgang play with Van Halen and Tremonti!
Anita-I know! She has always had gorgeous hair.
Christina - It's a good read! I started a few days ago and I'm almost done!
Dezz- Dezz! Half that sentence is great! I have negative comments will be deleted but I hate to delete yours!:p She is definitely cute and charming.

I loved her on One Day at a Time. I actually have Gone Girl waiting for me at the library right now, but I haven't picked it up yet because I have so many other books I'm reading. I need to soon, though, or I'll lose it because the wait list is so long.
