Biography

Valerie Bertinelli began acting as a child, literally growing up on American television screens well into middle-aged adulthood. The petite Bertinelli cut a fresh-faced, smart-alecky presence on Norman Lear's CBS sitcom, "One Day at a Time" (1975-1984), a persona that evolved along with her public young marriage to hard rocking guitarist Eddie Van Halen. Moving into an eclectic mix of television movies, miniseries and series, including the popular family drama "Touched by an Angel" (CBS, 1994-2003), Bertinelli juggled home and work life; all the while remaining a fond presence in the consciousness of viewers. When she came out as a pitchwoman for Jenny Craig diet centers, she was welcomed with open arms by millions of middle-aged women who had grown up with her and could now relate to Bertinelli's brave admittance of being overweight.
