By Caroline Howe For Dailymail. Hard rock band Van Halen began their infamous run of success, drama and debauchery in and climbed all the way up to the top of the charts to become multi-platinum superstars. What started out as a backyard party band in Los Angeles with the two Van Halen brothers Eddie and Alex, became a quartet when they hired bass player, Michael Anthony and untrained and limited vocalist David Lee Roth.
Behind the scenes, there was a real life struggle with infidelity, weight gain, even drugs. But she's battled back in front of the world. Valerie Bertinelli is thin, in love, telling us all about losing it.
Rejoice, America. Your company probably laid off a hundred people yesterday, your department store, car manufacturer and favorite magazine just folded, and that pesky war thing is still happening. But Valerie Bertinelli has poured herself into a bikini for the first time in 30 years.
You may remember Bertinelli as the younger sister from One Day at a Time. Since then, she has starred in Hot in Cleveland with Betty White and worked as a Jenny Craig spokeswoman who lost nearly 50 pounds. Oh, and she was married for two decades to, and then divorced from, rock star Eddie Van Halen.
