'It's finally over': Valerie Bertinelli announces she's 'happily divorced' from Tom Vitale
The divorce was filed by Valerie Bertilleni in May; the couple were married for over ten years
Valerie took to Twitter and posted a video with 'Happily Divorced' written over the footage wherein she expresses her joy of finally putting an end to the divorce proceedings. Bertinelli has reasons to celebrate as she is now officially a happy single woman.
The ex couple neared their breaking point in the divorce proceedings when Bertinelli was asked by Vitale to make a monthly payment of $50,000 in spousal support. She then requested the court for both of their spousal support rights to be terminated.

"On 11/22/22, I am officially f*****g divorced. Happily divorced. Finally. It's finally over," she announced in the video.
According to People, the divorce proceedings in court, where neither Bertinelli nor Vitale was present, were settled by Hank Goldberg, a private judge as per the court documents. The proceedings also included the Validity of the Premarital Agreement proceeding divided as well as Spousal Support and Attorney Fees issue.
As reported by RadarOnline.com, the couple wanted the private judge to resolve "any disputes between the parties related to both parties' personal property".
In November 2021, a legal separation was filed. After six months, Bertinelli filed for divorce from Vitale in May.
She later revealed that "my lawyer just called. The papers are all signed. They're about to be filed" in a candid clip Bertinelli captured on her way to meet her musician son Wolfgang Van Halen at the airport.
She sold her wedding ring during their breakup in September and also got rid of the Jimmy Choo strappy heels she wore on their wedding day.
She wrote on Instagram, "Dropped a few things off with @therealreal. A couple of Tiffany rings that have some bad memories attached and a pair of shoes I wore to a wedding in January 2011 😉 They should be up in a couple of weeks! ✨💖"
In August, Bertinelli listed her Hollywood Hills home for $2.5 million.
Vitale, a financial planner, and Bertinelli, 'The Hot in Cleveland' star, tied the knot on January 1, 2011, at their cliff-side home in Malibu. Bertinelli and Vitale were married for over ten years. The divorce was filed citing irreconcilable differences.
