The Hot in Cleveland and Food Network star filed for legal separation on November 24, 2021. Bertinelli later filed for divorce at the Los Angeles Superior Court of California on May 12, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for her and Vitale’s breakup.
The actress married Vitale, a financial planner, in January 2011 after dating for several years. The pair do not have any children together and, according to the documents, a prenuptial agreement is in order.
The couple first announced their separation in November 2021, though they actually have been broken up since December 2019. Vitale is Bertinelli’s second husband. She was first married to the late rock star Eddie Van Halen from 1981 to 2007.
