Audio Memoir

Finished August 19
Losing It: and gaining my life back one pound at a time by Valerie Bertinelli, read by the author
I've been watching the new sitcom "Hot in Cleveland" that Bertinelli is in, and thoroughly enjoying it, so when I needed a new audiobook for the car, and saw this on the shelf, I grabbed it.
It was quite interesting, and she is very open about her life and where she feels she has come to by the age she is at when she wrote it. Having her as the reader made it much more authentic as well.
She talks about getting into acting and how the opportunities that came her way shaped her as did the strong parenting she had growing up. She is very candid about her relationship to Eddie Van Halen and the mistakes both of them made in their marriage. She is hopeful for the future and looking forward to a life lived more self-aware than she had been previously.
