Synopsis

Losing It is Bertinelli’s frank, motivational look inside the life of one of TV’s most adored actresses. It tells the inspiring story of her young stardom as the girl next door cutie, Barbara Cooper, on the hit show, “One Day at a Time,” her complicated family life, her struggles to maintain a healthy self-esteem while coping with celebrity, her tumultuous 20-year marriage to rock star Eddie Van Halen, her struggle with depression, and her life-long battle with weight. With courage and candor, humor and emotion, she shares her fears, insecurities, and triumphs, including how she took control of her own life and gained happiness.

Valerie takes listeners behind the scenes in her acting career and marriage, discusses the stresses and concerns of being a rock star’s wife, the joys of motherhood; the challenges of divorce and becoming a single parent, and the fears she had to address so that she could start dating again, trust a new relationship, allow intimacy, and let herself feel loved again. Through it all are surprising, sometimes shocking anecdotes of the other celebrities she has known, as well as stories of her loyal family and friends who stood by her.
