Valerie Bertinelli Openly Discloses Her Experience of Being Criticized for Her Appearance

Valerie Bertinelli is upfront about her mental health and a “hidden bruise.” Bertinelli uploaded a video to Instagram on February 12, 2023, where she could be seen walking and conversing with the camera. In addition to Bertinelli’s speech, we can hear a swishing sound as she walks throughout the video.

“I’m giggling because I had a small, hidden bruise activated today,” Bertinelli said. “My jeans are rubbing together, creating this particular sound, so you can probably hear them.” As she moved, her pants made a swishing noise.

Bertinelli claimed that she “stopped wearing” these particular pants due to being “mercilessly mocked” by an ex who used to remark that if she weren’t so lazy and lost weight, her pants wouldn’t make that noise.
