Valerie Bertinelli files for legal divorce from husband Tom Vitale: report

Valerie Bertinelli is forgoing her second marriage, as she has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband, Tom Vitale.

The 61-year-old Food Network filed court documents in Los Angeles on Wednesday, officially requesting a judge to end their marriage, which has lasted nearly a decade.

Bertinelli and Vitale tied the knot on New Year’s Day in 2011. The sparks seemed to have died down, however, as she cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split, according to TMZ.

According to the tabloid press, Bertinelli asked the court that neither of them receive spousal support, as the former couple had a prenuptial agreement to tie up any loose ends regarding how their assets might be divided. They do not share children together.
