Valerie Bertinelli celebrates after finalizing Tom Vitale divorce


Valerie Bertinelli is officially divorced from Tom Vitale – and couldn’t be happier about it!

The actress took to Twitter on Tuesday to celebrate what she called the “second best day” of her life.

“My lawyer just called,” gushed the “One Day at a Time” alum, 62, in the video. “The papers are all signed. They are about to be submitted.

“On 11/22/22 I officially divorced,” Bertinelli continued. “Happy divorced. Finally. It’s finally over.”

The Emmy winner closed with an excited “Yes!” She added the words “happily divorced” to the images.

Bertinell’s social media upload comes a year after she filed for legal separation from Vitale, whom she married in January 2011.

The Golden Globe winner filed for divorce in May and sold her wedding ring and her Jimmy Choo sandals from the ceremony four months later.

“Dropping a few things,” Bertinelli wrote via Instagram in September. “A pair of Tiffany rings with some bad memories attached to them and a pair of shoes I wore to a wedding in January 2011 .”

The exes reached a settlement in their divorce that same month.

Prior to her relationship with Vitale, which began in 2004, the “Hot in Cleveland” alum was married to Eddie Van Halen from 1981 to 2001. (Their divorce was finalized six years later.)

The former couple welcomed son Wolfgang, now 31, ahead of their divorce.

Last month, Matthew Perry provided insight into Bertinelli and the late Van Halen rocker’s marriage as he recalled a 1990 make-out session with his “Sydney” co-star.

“I told her I had thought about doing that for a long time, and she told me right away,” the “Friends” alum, 53, wrote in his memoir “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing,” and commented that he was “devastated” when she never mentioned their hookup again.

Bertinelli responded to the headlines in October with a playful Instagram video.

“Is anyone else misbehaving in their 20s and early 30s? Are you terrified?” the host of “Valerie’s Home Cooking” captioned the footage.

Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” was playing in the background. Like “It’s me. Hi. I am the problem, it is me”, Bertinelli played to the camera.
