Please Say It Isn't So

Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli are getting divorced after 24 years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences. They are going to share custody of their 14 year old son Wolfgang. They named their son Wolfgang. Admittedly it's not one of those NEW weird names famous people give their kids. Instead it is an OLD weird name, but at least it's for Mozart. Weird, original and intelligent.

I thought their marriage was solid. I thought they were going to make it. This news saddens me. I remember when they got married. Eddie had pretty much peaked with the band and Valerie's career was slowing down a bit. They were both so good looking and talented and of course they still are but at the time that was like Heather Locklear and Tommy Lee getting married. It was a HUGE deal. A real rock-n-roll love story.
