Valerie Bertinelli is a woman who is “happily” single.
On Tuesday, the Food Network personality, 62, announced her divorce from Tom Vitale.
Bertinelli said in a frank video shot at an airport on her way to see her son, 31-year-old singer Wolfgang Van Halen, “My attorney just phoned. All of the paperwork has been signed. They’re almost ready to be filed.”
Bertinelli added: “I officially f——— divorced on 11/22/22. Divorced happily. Finally. It’s finally finished.”
“Yes!” she exclaimed at the end of the video. Bertinelli also scribbled “happy divorced” over her clip.
Six months after filing for legal separation in November 2021, the actress filed for divorce in May.
Proceedings were handled by a private judge, Hank Goldberg, according to court documents acquired by PEOPLE in September.
This includes the spousal support and attorney fees issue, as well as the divided Premarital Agreement Validity process. Bertinelli and Vitale did not appear in court at the time.
Bertinelli already reached a breakup milestone in September, when she sold her wedding ring and the Jimmy Choo stiletto heels she wore when she and Vitale married.
She uploaded a photo of a few items she was handing over to luxury marketplace The RealReal at the moment.
Bertinelli captioned a series of images featuring the sleek brown Jimmy Choo heels with diamond studs, “Dropped a couple items off with @therealreal.”
Bertinelli also appeared to be holding two wedding bands in front of a classic Tiffany & Co. box in the photo.․․
“A couple of Tiffany rings with some awful memories attached and a pair of shoes I wore to a wedding in January 2011,” she explained, adding, “They should be up in a few of weeks!”
Bertinelli also said good-by to her Hollywood Hills home, which she advertised in August for $2.5 million.․․
After several years of dating, the Hot in Cleveland star married Vitale in 2011 on a New Year’s Day wedding at their cliff-side Malibu home. Her brother Patrick introduced them.
