Valerie Bertinelli.

Has anyone seen her on that long-assed commercial, advertising some kind of miracle make-up?

She looks exactly the same as she did on One Day at a Time. It's almost eerie.

What does she know the rest of us, don't?

by Anonymousreply 6112/16/2013

It has to be genetic. She smoked, drank, did drugs, was fat, sun worshipped.

I used to think she and Eddie looked like a brother sister couple but he aged and she didn't.

Eddie Van Halen.

by Anonymousreply 202/21/2012

She has never been with any hot guys, her past boyfriend are Steven Spielberg and Paul Shaffer. The current husband looks like a thug and Eddie looks like he has down's syndrome.

Valerie doesn't look like EVH.

by Anonymousreply 402/21/2012

r4 maybe not anymore, but back in the day I used to think they could be related.

She looks younger now than she did in this picture.

by Anonymousreply 502/21/2012

Yeah, she just lucked out in the genetics lottery. As R1 said, she didn't exactly take care of herself when she was younger. It's amazing that she looks that good.

by Anonymousreply 602/21/2012

I think her new man is pretty hot. She is Italian and sometimes they age really well, not in Madonna's case but Valerie has body fat too. That helps.

by Anonymousreply 702/21/2012

Good genes and some well done plastic surgery, fillers and/or Botox

by Anonymousreply 802/21/2012

She's also VERY nice; very friendly, a good egg.

I think those people tend to look younger longer b/c they don't turn into old meanies.

Look at Betty White, still plugging away at 90.

Bertinelli is the host of Cindy Crawford's 'Meaningful Beauty' skin crae infomercial.

Are VB and EVH divorced?

Yes R12.

EXACTLY. And it looks good on her. She has the body type that carries it well. When I see her on Hot in Cleveland, it's amazing how much better she looks (her body too) next to skeletal and vascular Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves.

by Anonymousreply 1402/21/2012

I wonder how VB feels standing next to her skeletal co-stars on Hot in Cleveland. VB looks the healthiest, by far. And most happy.

Maybe it's the miracle make up -- the stuff might work.

She's a wasp woman.

by Anonymousreply 1702/21/2012

Is she still friend with poor Mackenzie Phillips? Wish she'd get a part on a comedy (or something), I think she's good.

by Anonymousreply 1802/21/2012

She's Irish and Italian. For whatever reason, that combo ages really well.

They had a reunion on Oprah circa 2009 and I think they keep in touch.

by Anonymousreply 2002/21/2012

I think she's had to have some work done. And as said earlier, it's excellent work, unlike the crap on most actresses these days. She looks great. Even if she has put a little of the lost weight back on.

She can afford the best plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists. You rubes don't really believe she is au natural?

Joan Rivers is a freak -- most people who have plastic surgery and laser don't look at all like her. The look very good.

Only mental cases get their faces so pumped up with fillers that they look like they've been sucking helium into their heads. The vast majority of performers go to surgeons and derms who are conservative at preserving looks.

And a good cosmetic surgeon preserves looks, s/he doesn't try to preserve youth.

by Anonymousreply 2502/22/2012

I think it's the Italian genes. My Italian aunt recently turned 60 and looks as beautiful as she ever has. And I highly doubt she had any work done - she's just not the type.

by Anonymousreply 2602/22/2012

What happened to the plan for her to host a chat show? I think she'd be good at it. And yes, her current husband is quite hot.

by Anonymousreply 2702/22/2012

I actually think she looks better with a tad extra weight. She's got that nice Italian shape where it goes to the boobs and the butt, and it fills out her face.

by Anonymousreply 2802/24/2012

her face is soft and round; that ages a lot better than sharp angles.

by Anonymousreply 2902/24/2012

Well the stadium lighting and post production on that infomercial would help. Bitch please, Cindy Crawford!? She already admitted to having botox and clearly had work done.

I hate when they use obviously enhanced celebs to flog these products, how stupid do they think people are. Victoria Principal?!

by Anonymousreply 3002/24/2012

I didn't think Valarie was into the drug scene back in the 80s... Did I miss that news? I thought she was always trying to get Eddie to stop using and that's why their marriage ended.

by Anonymousreply 3102/25/2012

r11 So if rub some melons on my face I wont age?

by Anonymousreply 3202/25/2012

A pact with the devil.

Valerie looks amazing for 53.

by Anonymousreply 3303/31/2013

I used to love to watch Victoria Principal on QVC back in the day. She'd claim to have never had plastic surgery or anything else and she could barely move her face. Isn't her husband a plastic surgeon?

by Anonymousreply 3403/31/2013

Valerie has aged a lot better than Victoria.

by Anonymousreply 3503/31/2013

I'm reading her autobiography (the first one). I was surprised about Spielberg.

Here's her interview on Letterman. One of the most uncomfortable ones ever.

by Anonymousreply 3712/14/2013

She looks hideous without make-up

by Anonymousreply 3812/14/2013

She had a breast lift for sure.

It's good she didn't have a nose job. That keeps her from looking fake.

by Anonymousreply 3912/14/2013

She's always had that nose.

Eddie Van Halen's seminal fluid is an anti-aging serum.

by Anonymousreply 4112/14/2013

She's had a nose job, I know that for a fact. When i was young I worked at Cedars Sinai doing data entry, and I got her file -- she was there for a "deviated septum" which was basically insurance code for "nose job". But she does look good, whatever she's doing or has done.

by Anonymousreply 4212/14/2013

R42 - She always had a very flat nose. It's possible that she had a deviated septum for other reasons, including coke use.

by Anonymousreply 4312/14/2013

Plastic surgery or not she looks great. She never did anything for me when she was younger now that she's older I find her quite fuckable. She's definitely a MILF.

A friend of mine has seen her in Scottsdale,AZ(where she lives when she's not doing Hot in Cleveland) and he said she looks good in person. She's living with an Italian American "Lex Luthor" type now. He is supposed to be in the finance business.

A friend of mine got a nose job and her plastic surgeon told her to tell everyone that she had a "deviated septum".

And thanks for the dish!

Those commercials, like the ones with Cindy Crawford, are heavily filtered. I think they must shoot them through cheesecloth. Also, they over-light the set in order to diminish washes them out a bit. Did you ever watch Ellen? She so blurry and over-lit. You can watch her every day yet not know what she actually looks like. Ditto for Oprah's talk show in the last several years. I knew one guy at work who had Fios installed and it took the whole day to be installed. When it was done they had a money back guarantee and he said he almost told the installer he didn't want it. The TV happened to be on Oprah at the time. The Verizon guy changed to different show and my coworker couldn't believe the difference in clarity in the picture.

by Anonymousreply 4612/14/2013

If you carry weight in your face, you too will age like her.

There was a thread before with someone asking about how to reduce the size of their "carb face", and I tried to explain that some people, no matter how thin, just naturally have that type if face and there is nothing you can do to reduce it. The plus side of it is that you age well (even if you are underweight, you won't look skeletal like Valerie Bertinellis co-stars!)

by Anonymousreply 4712/14/2013

Yes. She looks tremendous, doesn't she.

by Anonymousreply 4812/14/2013

Some time a deviated septum is just a deviated septum.......or surgery to fix a coke hole.

by Anonymousreply 4912/14/2013

Yes, she looks good. But she's starting to remind me of Paul Sorvino.

You don't have to worry about coke-hole nose when your assistant blows it up your sphincter.

Valerie has a wholesomeness about her. Many others get lots of work to "look youthful" and "hot" and it does not work.

by Anonymousreply 5412/14/2013

She always had a fat face and that helps with wrinkles.

Valerie was in a TV movie called A Case for Life playing an antiabortion activist. Her sister, played by Mel Harris, is pro choice.

by Anonymousreply 5912/15/2013

It's the heart-shaped face with natural fat. Just like Christie Brinkley.

Whoever said it's because she is Irish/Italian - no way. Nobody ages more poorly than the Irish. Hundreds of years of scurvy and poor nutrition in that country. It will at least two more generations of middle class living and multi-cultural breeding for the Irish to purge the poverty from their systems.

by Anonymousreply 6012/16/2013

R60 - Irish ay not age well, nut Italians do.
