According to court documents, the preamble remains “in full force and effect and fully binding on the parties,” as reported by USA TODAY.

Last November, The Hot in Cleveland actress filed for separation from Vitale, citing “irreconcilable differences” before filing for divorce last month.

The Touched by An Angel actress married Vitale on New Years Day 2011 at their home in Malibu, California after dating for years. The One Day at a Time star told People in January 2011 that she felt “happier than ever” after exchanging vows with Vitaly.

“I could have spent the rest of my life with Tom without being married,” Bertinelli told outlets, “but I wanted to call him ‘my husband.'” I really wanted to share my feeling for Tom with the people I love.

Bertinelli was previously married to the late rock legend Eddie Van Halen between 1981-2007, and they are parents to the musician’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen, 31.

The legendary guitarist passed away at the age of 65 in October 2020 after suffering a stroke and a long-running battle against cancer.

In the book she released earlier this year, Enough Already: Learning To Love The Way I Am Today, Bertinelli opened up about her last moments with the late rock star and her son.

She wrote: “I love you” are the last words Ed said to Wolfie and I, and they are the last words we say to him before he stops breathing.

Bertinelli told the outlet in January that her parting with Vitaly was not related to her love for the late rock musician, because the two had “divided up”.

“The decision has nothing to do with my love for Ed,” she added. I hope Tom is the best and I know he feels the same way about me.

In her book, Bertinelli described her parting with Vitale as slow and painful.

“We’ve moved away from the interests that made us a couple and found these differences to be irreparable,” she said. He is a good man who is going through many of the same problems I did: What can he do to add meaning and purpose to his life?

– Where does he find joy? What is his passion? What do you know? And what does he do differently in the future? The paths we thought we were walking have changed.
