Reality television personality and actress Valerie Bertinelli has reportedly filed for a legal separation from her husband Tom Vitale, People magazine reported on Saturday.
The news was confirmed to People by an unnamed source, with a second source close to the couple telling the site that the pair are seeking a separation rather than a divorce.
According to a declaration filed in a court on Friday, Bertinelli revealed she and Vitale had separated in October, but that they are still living together at their Glendale, California, home. They have two adult children from previous relationships.
The couple had tied the knot in July 1996, and after divorcing Bertinelli in 2001, she married Vitale once again in 2006.
In the declaration, Bertinelli wrote that she and Vitale were continuing to make amends and work through their problems, adding that she wanted her children to be “sure that this is not a choice they are forced to make,” according to People.
Bertinelli is best known for her role on the sitcom “Hot in Cleveland,” which has been renewed for a seventh season. She has also appeared in the sitcom “Two and a Half Men” and made a supporting cameo in “Harold & Kumar” in 2009.
