What Did Valerie Bertinelli Say About Her Separation From Tom Vitale?

Speaking to the magazine, Bertinelli shared, “We became very unkind to one another, and that’s not a way to live in a marriage." The actress revealed the breaking point, where she could not take it anymore.

She said, “I had hit rock bottom emotionally. All the drama and trauma I hadn’t dealt with. I’ve used food to numb my emotions. I’ve used alcohol to numb my emotions. Because there was so much sadness in my life, and alcohol amplified it. Those were symptoms of what was going on inside of me."

Bertinelli continued, "I wanted to feel calm, more consistent therapy, more journaling and more meditation." Bertinelli continued, “The more I let myself cry, the better I felt. Long walks with my dog, Luna, were also helpful. When I decided to really question why I was having a certain emotion.” She added, "I was able to—most of the time—walk through it and get to the other side."
