Actress Valerie Bertinelli appeared on “The Ellen” show with Ellen DeGeneres discussing the evening her hubby Tom Vitale proposed.
Valerie revealed, “I’m like, ‘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.”
Valerie adds, “And then I just closed my eyes, and he just puts this little box on my chest.”
Although she was extremely excited, Bertinelli said she was concerned about the expense of the ring when she saw the box from Tiffany’s.
“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.’ “
Bertinelli accepted Vitale’s proposal and they married on January 1st, 2011.
“I don’t know why he married me,” she said joking around.
Bertinelli said of Vitale, “He loved me no matter what. In his way, he’s teaching me to love myself just as I am.”
“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.”
