VALERIE JUNKS BAD JUJU – SELLS ROMANCE RELICS
FOOD Network heavyweight Valerie Bertinelli is selling leftovers from her ill-fated nuptials with estranged hubby Tom Vitale — her diamond bands and rhinestone-studded sandals!
The former One Day at a Time cutie, 62, reveals she’s parting with “a couple of Tiffany rings that have some bad memories attached and a pair of shoes I wore to a wedding in January 2011.” Valerie is ditching her bridal bling for some cool cash as her divorce battle with Vitale, 59, heats up!
Court records show the financial planner is crying poor and wants his fat-cat ex — who rakes in more than $2 million annually — to support him like a king by forking over $50,000 a month! Sources say their relationship crumbled after the sitcom sweetheart rushed to the side of cancer-ravaged rocker Eddie Van Halen — her exhusband and soulmate — who died in October 2020. Grief-stricken Valerie filed for divorce less than two years later.
