Valerie Bertinelli is best known for her role as the teenager Barbara Cooper on the 1970s hit series One Day At A Time -- and for her marriage to Eddie Van Halen, the late, legendary rock guitarist. She started her career at a young age and grew into one tremendously capable actress so it was no surprise that her beauty and charisma attracted the Van Halen rock star. Although her marriage was not the fairytale it seemed to be, Bertinelli was a remarkable talent all in her own right.
