"I Thought I Would Be Alone:" Valerie Bartinelli Had Given Up On Love When She Met Second Husband Who Helped Her Make Peace With Her Ex
Valerie Bertinelli's husband is Tom Vitale. But before that, she was married to Eddie Van Halen. However, their marriage was not to last. Valerie was 21 years old when she walked down the aisle with Eddie, then 25, on April 11, 1981.
Eddie's band manager Noel E. Monk, in his book Runnin' with the Devil, wrote that the wedding wasn't completely perfect as they had some setbacks including the groom getting sick in the restroom.
Valerie and Eddie eventually separated in 2001, after being married for 20 years. The divorce was finalized six years later.
