On November 24, 2021, the Hot in Cleveland and Food Network celebrity filed for formal separation. On May 12, Bertinelli formally announced her and Vitale's separation by filing for divorce at the Los Angeles Superior Court of California, alleging "irreconcilable differences" as the cause. After several years of courtship, the actress wed Vitale, a financial planner, in January 2011. There is a prenuptial agreement in place, even if the couple doesn't have any children together. In September, Bertinelli sold her wedding band and the Jimmy Choo strappy shoes she wore during her nuptials to Vitale, marking a significant step in the separation. She shared a picture of a few items she was turning over to upscale retailer The RealReal at the moment.
