Valerie Bertinelli slims down - is it Ozempic or just being in love ?

FOOD Network alum Valerie Bertinelli has undergone a major body transformation since embarking on her fitness journey. Paparazzi caught Valerie grocery shopping out in West Hollywood, California, on Tuesday.

The One Day at a Time, 63, alum wore a slimming all-black outfit to run her errand.

Valerie's short-sleeve V-neck T-shirt outlined her trimmed-down waist, and her jeans hugged her thinner gams.

Her drastic weight loss was very noticeable in her ensemble.

The ex-Food Network star seems to be turning a new leaf, and restarting her love life.

Valerie revealed to USA Today last week that she was involved with someone new following her divorce from her ex-husband, Tom Vitale.

Tom and Valerie parted ways in 2022.

Valerie told the news outlet that her new relationship with her beau was "unlike any relationship she ever experienced with a man."

Although she didn't want to disclose "too much," she revealed that she was "lucky to have him."

Now if she could just do something about Wolfie, who is bigger than ever.

Why does she look like Mickey Rooney?

by Anonymousreply 7March 23, 2024 3:41 PM

It's definitely the "O" or the "M" aka Zepbound.

She probably won't suffer from the wasted, sunken face as we've seen in others because she's always had a fuller, wider face with higher cheekbones - so she's got that going for her.

However, it'll be interesting to see how it pans out for her; for some reason, I don't think she'll go down the Sharon/Kelly Osborne/Jessica Simpson route and get scary skinny. I think she'll stop at a sensible, albeit trim weight, but what do i know? We'll see.

I wonder if Wolfie will follow suit. He really needs it; I'll be that boy has Type II diabeetus.

And when, oh when, will Chrissy Metz start taking it and start leaving her snack purse at home as she loses interest in food. For people who are that large, the effects would be extremely interesting to watch.

Also, notice we haven't seen Lizzo for quite some time? I'll bet she's undergoing her transformation behind closed doors, so she can stage a grand comeback and say that she's spent several months undergoing many lifestyle and mental health changes, and she's ready to put the sexual harrassment/hostile work environment situation behind her.

Kelly Clarkson looks great on the Wayfair commercials. I hope she doesn't go down the scary skinny route.

She's so disgustingly tiresome with her constant whining and sobbing on social media about how mistreated she is because she's fat, etc. Meanwhile, she's never mentioned all the times she was on Oprah pushing weight loss schemes and shilling for NutriSystem and other snake oil weight loss products. No, it's somebody else's fault and society is just so mean to this poor rich, famous white woman... boo hoo

She's mentally ill.

That is such a sad case. He turned into a whale. His dad was always handsome and sexy - he must've picked up the fat genes from his mother.

Val always had huge thighs

by Anonymousreply 14March 23, 2024 4:10 PM

there's nothing wrong with thick thighs, that's genetics. She was never going to be some tall, slim waif with a thigh gap.

But Wolfie has a double dose of weighty genetics. Eddie was never fat, but you could easily see he could have slid that way if he stopped giving a shit how he looked. And Valerie is a short girl, with a propensity to gain weight because (believe it or not) short people tend to need less calories and therefore burn less calories. She can't eat the way a person who is even 3 or 4 inches taller can unless she's working out like a madman.

I didn’t know they kicked her off Kids Baking Championship. I thought she was good on that show, very nice to the kids.

R17, she's iconically difficult and argumentative. She seems to think she's some sort of Hollywood icon. She's made an entire life off being on one mildly successful sitcom from the 1970s and for having the good fortune of marrying a rock star. That's it. That's all she's ever accomplished.

There's a reason she gets booted from things all the time, it's not just people disliking her for no reason.

[quote]She's made an entire life off being on one mildly successful sitcom from the 1970s and for having the good fortune of marrying a rock star.

Not really. She became a 'TV movies and miniseries' queen in the 80s (with such hits as "I'll Take Manhattan") , and had another hit series in the '00s ("Touched by an Angel") and in the 10s ("Hot In Cleveland").

by Anonymousreply 19March 23, 2024 4:44 PM

R19, I forgot about Hot In Cleveland. I never saw it but I know it had a somewhat decent following. I wouldn't at all say she was a 'star' on Touched by An Angel. She's not even known for that. Sure, she's been on a couple of things but other than One Day and Cleveland, who knows her from any real acting projects? Plus, it's been so, so long ago. I guess she's had a career but now she seems only known for her whining and crying all over social media and being a perpetual victim of fat shaming.

by Anonymousreply 20March 23, 2024 4:48 PM

It's all natural. She's been tap dancing. That sheds the weight and lifts the spirits!

by Anonymousreply 21March 23, 2024 4:49 PM

Yeah, she's stayed working for a good portion of her life, in some form or another. And when she stopped getting hired for acting roles, she took up the cooking shows, so while there have been some periods of inactivity, she's still stayed relatively busy.

It took me a while to lose the baby weight. Don’t judge!

r20, again, he was in a lot of made for tv type stuff in the 80s so while she wasn't big screen or carrying a series, she stayed busy enough. Plus, she was also being a mom to Wolfie.

I wouldn't say she was sitting on her ass eating bon bons all day most of her lfie.

I wonder what it was like being in a popular tv show and your costar was fucked up on drugs all the time, to the point where she was pockmarked and looked like a beat up broomstick in a wig. Valerie and McKenzie Phillips started the show together and as the show went on Phillips got fucked up to the gills. It must’ve been pretty frightening that your coworker is a major drug addict and her rock star dad is diddling her.

The show was still popular enough to keep going after Phillips got kicked off. Like, “Hey I’m sorry you’re all fucked up, but my family isn’t a bunch of rich rock starts so I have to keep working, y’all. Good luck and whatnot.”

Oh no not again. Last we heard she was resigning herself to a manless life and learning to love and accept herself as she was. I mean she wrote a book about it for corns sake. And please, Eddie didn’t care about how he looked for years. His teeth rotted out and he was an alky so food was a last priority. I guess she got the chub gene from her mom, but Wolfie was always a huge kid. I don’t know where he got that.

It’s not “dieting”, it’s one of the new weight loss drugs.

It’s damn near impossible for a woman her age, whose weight has yo-yoed her whole life (with a significant portion of that life being overweight or obese), to lose such a tremendous amount of weight by diet and exercise.

She’s fighting a long-time metabolic setpoint, hormones, and aging— along with a tendency to overeat. There are too many fronts in that battle for it to be the old “exercise more and eat less” canard. She’s not 22.

I’m happy for her, but let’s cut the shit.

R66 Thank you for explaining this. I think her new cookbook 'Indulge' is bullshit, she just signed her name to it and posed for pictures. I say that because she had no idea what the food offerings (that she supposedly developed the recipes for, but admitted she didn't cook before the segment) were on the table. It was as though her first time even seeing these dishes and tasting them.

I am betting she can't say a word about her real weight loss (Ozempic, I'm guessing) while promoting the cook book. However, I'm betting once the promo dies down, she will eventually come clean - or the tabloids will find out.

Valerie also gushed about the 'new man' in her life and how they met (he 'slid into her DM' - and I still don't know what that means). She said it's a little tricky as he's on the east coast and she's on the west, but they are determined to make it work because they are in looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove.

None of the hosts bothered to question her previous, very public stance that she would never ever get involved with someone again. They just smiled at her as though she was a virgin falling in love for the first time.
