When asked if she would look for love again, Bertinelli replied, “Oh my God, no.”
“Because of the challenges I’m going through right now, because divorce sucks, I can’t imagine trusting anyone again to let into my life. So I have trust issues that I’m sure that I’m going to have to pass.”
Bertinelli changed his legal separation file to dissolution of his 10-year marriage to Vitale for “irreconcilable differences” on May 12.
The Food Network host originally had filed an application for legal separation from her ex-husband and listed the date of separation as December 1, 2019.
