    Valerie Bertinelli Addresses Eddie's Past Health Battles

    By Stephen M. Silverman
    Originally posted Tuesday March 04, 2008 03:30 PM EST

    With the announced postponement on Monday of four Van Halen concerts while Eddie Van Halen undergoes medical treatment for an undisclosed malady, the guitarist's former wife, Valerie Bertinelli, has offered some choice observations about his physical condition past and present.

    Of her ex's battle with cancer, which he beat in 2002, Bertinelli tells Ladies' Home Journal: "The guy has mouth cancer, gets part of his tongue cut out, and he still insists cigarettes have nothing to do with it."

    Van Halen, 53, abused alcohol and cocaine, Bertinelli also reveals (among other disclosures) in her new tell-all book, Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time. That abuse and its denial helped break apart the marriage, she says.

    "There was so much denial, so much not talking," Bertinelli tells the Journal. Van Halen has cited a metal guitar pick he held in his mouth as contributing to his cancer.

    As for the practitioner of alternative medicine who helped treat her ex, Bertinelli says: "You should have seen the guy he attributes his 'cure' to. They sat around drinking and smoking in our hotel room. But, well, cancer hasn't come back yet, so who am I to say."

    I don't know why she annoys me so much. I wish she'd shut up.

    Because she's using her married life and her ex-husband to cash in and make some money.

    I guess Eddie wasn't smart enough to get a non-disclosure agreement in the divorce settlement.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean I'd defend him either. Outing a self-indulgent, obnoxious addict in denial doesn't really bother me. To still be fucking up at his age is pathetic, and helping him hide and deny doesn't do anybody any good. Including the fans who bought tickets to Van Halen's now-cancelled shows. (Which doesn't include me, I can't stand their music, but hey. )

    I think she'll probably shut up soon anyway and get back to her Lifetime movies of the week, etc.

    I don't know. Trashing your famous ex publicly is in really poor taste in my opinion. Sure the guy's got demons and dealing with him for 20 odd years must not have been a picnic but for the sake of their son, she should shut her trap.

    She looks like a weird cross over between Rachel Ray and Lindsay Lohan.

    Unhappy

    I used to really like her until I ordered her book. It wasn't that good and she mostly just rambled in it. I hope she keeps the weight off; it seems important to her.

    Why does she think anybody cares? I want her and Rachel Ray in a Steel Cage Death Match.

    You're not the only one! She can't act! She's not particularly cute and she doesn't know when to SHUT UP because she thinks people care about her boring-ass life story!
