Valerie Bertinelli Talks Proposal with Ellen
Sitting down for a television interview, the lovely Valerie Bertinelli made an appearance on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show".
In the episode airing on Wednesday (March 9), the "Hot in Cleveland" actress chatted about topics including her husband Tim Vitale's proposal and being over fifty years in age.
Asked how her boyfriend made his proposal, Miss Bertinelli replied, “It was our first trip ever to Italy and we’re both Italian. I don’t know why it was our first trip. I’m 50 and I’m finally going to Italy.”
Continuing to dig out info, DeGeneres asked for an exact location.
Valerie proceeded to tell, "We were in Florence. It was like the sunset, we had just had dinner and it was a crappy dinner which is really not okay in Italy…I went up to my room and was reading TIME magazine. I wanted to get through a bunch of time’s I brought with me on the trip. Real romantic, aren’t I? So I’m reading the magazine and he’s got this little glint in his eye and he’s lying in the bed next to me. I’m like, ‘Stop it. Leave me alone.’ Because I’m trying to read. He’s like, ‘Really?’ And I’m like ‘Really. I just want to read this magazine. It was a crappy dinner. We’re in Italy. It should’ve been an amazing dinner.’ I was really pissed off. I just wanted to read my magazine. And then I just closed my eyes and he just puts this little box on my chest. It was from Tiffany’s. I said, ‘Why did you spend so much money? Why did you go to Tiffany’s? You should’ve gone someplace else with cheaper jewelry.’ I don’t know why he married me.”
Closing things out, Bertinelli spoke about being over 50-years-old, saying, “You know what? For me, it’s always just been a number. I swear to God, if I knew I would feel this good and my life would be this amazing at 50, I would’ve turned 50 a long time ago. I pinch myself that this is my life right now.”
