During last week’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Valerie Bertinelli opened up about an incident involving Christina Aguilera. Bertinelli, who was there to promote her show Hot in Cleveland, was asked by Andy Cohen about her ‘feud’ with the singer. “I didn’t have a feud with her,” Valerie began. “I was a fan at that time – a long time ago – and I went up to her ’cause she was at a Van Halen concert, and I said, ‘Oh my god, I think you’re a beautiful singer.’”
According to the sitcom star, Aguilera brushed her off and reportedly said, “Yeah, whatever.” “She gave me the cold shoulder and I thought, ’B****, I’m a fan. You can’t be nice to me?’” Bertinelli says she hasn’t ran into Aguilera ever since. “She might have gotten better. But I heard she hasn’t,” she said in the interview.
A few days after Bertinelli talked about the incident, Aguilera seemingly dismissed the actress yet again. On Friday, November 7, the singer posted a photo of herself inside a recording studio with the caption “In more important news…” This may be a coincidence, but the timing definitely lends itself well to rumors that this was indeed a response to Bertinelli’s story.

Back in 2008, the actress also talked about the incident in a radio interview. She said, “I met her, and she was so mean to me.” Bertinelli added, “You know what? Forget you! I don’t need your new album!’ What’s up with that? She’s too young to be blowing people off.”
Bertinelli was known for her role as Barbara Cooper Royer in the sitcom One Day at a Time. She married rock star Eddie Van Halen on April 11, 1981, and together they raised their son Wolfgang. The couple divorced back in 2007, and in 2011, she married financial planner Tom Vitale.
