Thin Line Between Lust and Weight

Warning: The book is cheesy. Its author? An artery-clogging Mascarpone.

But Valerie Bertinelli remains relevant – and hot. She was the shooting star of many a young man’s wet dream back in the day, thanks to her stint on the ’70s sitcom One Day at a Time. The pixie-faced cherub cemented her pop-culture immortality by wedding Eddie Van Halen.

Then she porked out. Big time.

Then she joined Jenny Craig (the new Betty Ford) and shed the folds, leading her to pose in her bikini for the cover of People at age 49.

Then the former Mrs. Van Halen wrote a best-seller telling us how she did it, Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound At A Time.

Now she’s written a faith-based follow-up, Finding It: And Satisfying My Hunger for Life Without Opening the Fridge, which she signs at Changing Hands Bookstore.
