In 2009, she wrote a follow-up to her first book, “Finding It: And Satisfying My Hunger for Life without Opening the Fridge.” Valerie also released a fitness DVD entitled “Losing It” at the end of that year. In October 2012, she released a cookbook called “One Dish At A Time,” a play on the name of the TV show that first made her a household name. In addition, Valerie had a successful line of cookware and clothing at TJ Maxx.

As one of Hollywood’s brightest and most liked young talents, Bertinelli helped develop, produce and star in many highly rated TV movies and stayed extremely busy as one of primetime’s go-to actresses for movies and mini-series.
A two-time Golden Globe® winner, she made her acting debut in TV commercials, public service announcements and the TV series “Apple’s Way” before landing her big break at age 14 as Barbara Cooper on “One Day At A Time,” Norman Lear’s 1975 acclaimed series about a divorced mother raising her two daughters. The series ran on CBS for nine years.

Valerie has also served as a correspondent for “The Rachael Ray Show.” However, Valerie’s best and favorite production is her son, Wolfgang, who achieved his own fame as the bassist for the legendary rock group Van Halen on its North American Tour.

Valerie helped to inspire millions of people through her work with Jenny Craig, even recognized by People Magazine for her stunning “bikini bod” at 48 years old.
