Describing Tom Vitale would be another way of profiling a perfect gentleman. He is an American of white descent, a family man, financial planner, and a television personality – all wrapped into one. Tom is the husband of Valerie Bertinelli, former wife of a popular band member and guitar master, Eddie Van Halen. She is also a very popular actress and television host. She currently hosts two food television programs on Food Channel.
So much is not known about his career as a financial advisor, however, as a producer and programming expert, Tom Vitale has had several productions such as the Dyslexic Heart play, acted in 1999. Prior to that, he worked at the program acquisition department of Viacom and later with NBC. A graduate of Williams College and an alumnus member of the William club, Tom has appeared on television shows alongside his wife and also featured in documentaries.
His marriage to the gorgeous Valerie is not his first time out tasting the marriage waters. He was first married to a lady known only as Sharon (her last name is not known) and with her, he had two stepchildren while they shared a son together. Vitale’s marriage to Valerie is yet to produce any children but we hope that would be the case sooner rather than later.
