Valerie Bertinelli Bio
Valerie Bertinelli (born April 23, 1960) is an American Actress. She is known for her roles as Barbara Cooper Royer on the sitcom One Day at a Time (1975–84), Gloria on the drama series Touched by an Angel (2001–03), Melanie Moretti on the sitcom Hot in Cleveland (2010–15); and she also hosts the cooking series Valerie’s Home Cooking and Kids Baking Championship on Food Network.
One Day at a Time
Following her appearance in an episode of Apple’s Way, Bertinelli was approached by producer Norman Lear to audition for the role of cooperative daughter Barbara Cooper in a new sitcom called One Day at a Time. The show debuted in late 1975. For the show’s first season, Bertinelli was 15 years old. Bertinelli appeared in 208 out of the 209 episodes before the show left the airwaves on May 28, 1984.
Two decades later, in 2005, during the One Day at a Time Reunion Special, Bertinelli was reunited with fellow cast members Bonnie Franklin, Mackenzie Phillips, and Pat Harrington, Jr. to watch memorable clips from the original show’s nine seasons. They talked about actors who had left the show as well as Phillips’ drug problem, which had wreaked Havoc on the set and caused Phillips to be fired from the show.
Post-One Day at a Time
After One Day at a Time, Bertinelli continued to act. In addition to starring in several made for TV movies and miniseries, she starred in two sitcoms in the 1990s: as private eye Sydney, with Matthew Perry and Craig Bierko, and Café Americain from the creators of Frasier. In 2001, she joined the cast of Touched by an Angel, opposite Roma Downey and Della Reese, for the show’s last two seasons.
Bertinelli, who had some struggles with being overweight, Lost a total of 50 lb (23 kg) as of March 2009, and became a spokesperson for the Jenny Craig weight-loss program. She appeared in several Jenny Craig commercials. Although Bertinelli is compensated for her Jenny Craig appearances, she considers herself a health and weight-loss activist rather than a hired weight-loss spokesperson. In 2008 she released the autobiography, Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time, which culminates in a description of her Jenny Craig experience. In 2009 she wrote a follow-up book Finding It: And Satisfying My Hunger for Life without Opening the Fridge.
On March 4, 2010, Bertinelli appeared as guest co-host on ABC’s The View in the absence of Whoopi Goldberg.

The show’s second season aired in January 2011, and in February 2011 it was renewed for a third season. After a successful, six-season run, the final episode aired on June 3, 2015.
Bertinelli is also the host of the hit show Kids Baking Championship on Food Network. The show follows young children as they bake pastries and other desserts. Bertinelli hosts alongside Duff Goldman, ‘punny’ cake artist, and the show is currently in its third season.
