The “Valerie’s Home Cooking” star responded to a fan who commented she looked “sad” via Instagram on Monday.

“I’m just having a very bad day,” she said in the video. “But you know what? Sometimes we have bad days and then we get over them. And then there’s a good day. So, I’m looking forward to the good day.”

Vitale was Bertinelli’s second husband.

Van Halen died in October 2020 following a battle with cancer. He was 65.

At the time of his death, Bertinelli vowed in a tribute to see Van Halen again “in our next life my love.”

“40 years ago my life changed forever when I met you,” she wrote in part. “You gave me the one true light in my life, our son, Wolfgang.”
