Valerie Bertinelli speaks up about being mercilessly humiliated by a previous lover for her weight.

Valerie Bertinelli told followers that wearing jeans sparked memories of being “mercilessly humiliated” by a former lover.

In a TikTok video, the actor and Food Network star discussed her experience.

“I’m laughing because a minor hidden bruise got awakened today. “You can probably hear them because my pants are rubbing together and making this sound,” she explained.

While she could now laugh about her dress choices, she couldn’t always.
