Valerie Bertinelli may have lost a ton of weight, but she gained a new husband after tying the knot over the weekend. The Hot in Cleveland actress swapped vows with her boyfriend of seven years. The 50-year-old Jenny Craig queen said "I do" to do financial planner Tom Vitale at their lavish Malibu pad. Among the guests were Eddie Van Halen, Bertinelli's ex-husband and father of her son, Wolfie. The couple got engaged last March, according to People. "We're so happy!"Bertinelli told People. The actress spent 19 years married to Van Halen, although their divorce wasn't finalized until seven years after they split in 2000. Last year Bertinelli told AARP magazine that she credits Vitale for changing her life... and her plans, "After Ed and I separated, I thought, 'I'll finish raising my son, and I'll go away, have about 40 cats, and just get nice and fat.' I thought I would be alone for the rest of my life....[Now] I can't imagine my life...till the day I die, without him....Marriage at this age is so much different than when I was first married at 20. I feel incredibly lucky because here I am [at] 50 and I feel like I really am in the prime of my life." Also tying the knot this weekend was country superstar Shania Twain. She walked down the aisle with Frederic Nicolas Thiebaud, the husband of the woman with whom her husband cheated. However, we're betting neither of their exes attended the happy affair.
