Valerie Bertinelli
Award Winning Actress, Bestselling Author and Food Network Star, Saturday at 1:00
An adored Golden Globe award-winning actress and best-selling author, Valerie Bertinelli’s long and celebrated career has expanded to include equally beloved TV personality, spokesperson and best-selling author. Bertinelli currently stars in her own show on Food Network entitled “Valerie’s Home Cooking”, in its 4th season, where she shares her passion for preparing delicious meals for her friends and family, and “Kids Baking Championship” alongside Duff Goldman, which just premiered its 3rd season, to find the most impressive and creative young baker in the country. In October 2017, Bertinelli will release a new cook book titled “Valerie’s Home Cooking.”

For six seasons, Bertinelli starred as Melanie Moretti in TV Land’s hit sitcom “Hot in Cleveland.” The show followed three fabulous friends from Los Angeles (Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick) whose plane, bound for Paris, was forced to make an emergency landing in Cleveland.

Bertinelli has shared in many honors. In 2011, “Hot in Cleveland” was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award® for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. In June of that same year, Bertinelli – along with co-stars Leeves, Malick, and White – was presented with the key to the city of Cleveland by the mayor. In August 2012, she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In 2007, she dared to cross the Rubicon of weight and body image, declaring publicly, “I’m fat!”
on the cover of People Magazine and challenging herself to lose weight. Lo and behold, she not only lost more than 40 pounds, but also realized new and remarkable success as the face of the Jenny Craig Weight Loss Program, authored the NY Times #1 bestseller “Losing It,” and inspired millions of people to try to become their best and healthiest selves. In 2009, she wrote a follow-up to her first book, “Finding It: And Satisfying My Hunger for Life without Opening the Fridge.” Valerie also released a fitness DVD entitled “Losing It” at the end of that year. In October 2012, she released a cookbook called “One Dish At A Time,” a play on the name of the TV show that first made her a household name. In addition, Valerie had a successful line of cookware and clothing at TJ Maxx.

As one of Hollywood’s brightest and most liked young talents, Bertinelli helped develop, produce and star in many highly rated TV movies and stayed extremely busy as one of primetime’s go-to actresses for movies and mini-series. Her television credits include; “Shattered Vows,” “Judith Krantz’s I’ll Take Manhattan,” “Rockabye,” “Murder of Innocence,” “In a Child’s Name,” “What She Doesn’t Know,” “Pancho Barnes,” “Ultimate Betrayal,” “Two Mothers for Zachary,” “I Was a Mail Order Bride,”

The Seduction of Gina,” “Silent Witness” and “Night Sins.” She co-starred in “True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet” and guest-starred on “Boston Legal” in a part David E. Kelly wrote especially for her. Her other forays into the television series world include starring for two years on the hit series “Touched by an Angel,” “Café Americain” and “Sydney,” which she also executive produced.

A two-time Golden Globe® winner, she made her acting debut in TV commercials, public service announcements and the TV series “Apple’s Way” before landing her big break at age 14 as Barbara Cooper on “One Day At A Time,” Norman Lear’s 1975 acclaimed series about a divorced mother raising her two daughters. The series ran on CBS for nine years, ending in 1984.

Valerie has also served as a correspondent for “The Rachael Ray Show.” However, Valerie’s best and favorite production is her son, Wolfgang, who achieved his own fame as the bassist for the legendary rock group Van Halen on its 2007-2008 North American Tour.

Valerie helped to inspire millions of people through her work with Jenny Craig, even recognized by People Magazine for her stunning “bikini bod” at 48 years old. Valerie lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Tom.

Breakout Star of BRAVO's "Real Housewives of New York" Sunday at 1:00
Dorinda Medley stars in Bravo Networks’ Real Housewives of New York City. Dorinda arrived in NYC after college to work in the showrooms of Liz Claiborne. She met her first husband and followed him to London to start a family and eventually her own cashmere company, DCL Cashmere. Many high-profile London clients like Princess Diana and Joan Collins became acquaintances, and soon, Dorinda left her mark on London society. Ten years in London also brought her a daughter, Hannah, a divorce, and a wish to return to New York to figure out life in the city as a single mom. In 2005, Dorinda met and married financier Dr. Richard Medley, a former Washington power broker and respected speechwriter to congresswoman and vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro, and together they worked on fund-raising for charitable causes with the likes of Bishop Desmond Tutu, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Secretary Madeline Albright, and President Bill and Secretary Hillary Clinton.

After the tragic loss of their beloved Richard in 2011, Dorinda and Hannah found strength in each other and in their loved ones to overcome the radical changes of losing a husband, friend, companion, and father figure. Through perseverance and support from her close friends, Dorinda climbed right back to the top of New York society, eventually meeting boyfriend John Mahdessian, owner of New York's legendary couture restoration house Madame Paulette. Dorinda is always directing her energy and focus into her home, her family, her friends, her favorite charitable organizations like, her Twitter, and her love for pop culture.

Dorinda's passion for entertaining was also deeply enhanced with the purchase of Blue Stone Manor, an 11-bedroom estate in her native Great Barrington. Nothing gives Dorinda more pleasure than a weekend or holiday spent with great company, home-cooked meals, and the festive, personal touches she is known for. She enjoys the theater, the beach, the mountains, fabulous parties, a great dirty martini, and all types of fashion—both high-end and high-street—and considers all of her pieces collector's items. There's never enough glitz, glam and sparkle for this true New York City Housewife.
