First Eddie, Now Valerie? C'mon.
It's one thing for Van Halen to postpone its show tonight at the American Airlines Center. But now we get word from Sara Edmonds, the events coordinator at Borders Books' Preston Royal location, that the former Mrs. Eddie Van Halen, Valerie Bertinelli, has also bailed on her appearance originally scheduled for 5 p.m. tonight. Happened about an hour ago, Edmonds tells Unfair Park, "because her flight was canceled, and they can't get another one." Riiiight. Must be the, ahem, snowstorm headed our way? Nonetheless, Edmonds says, "They will reschedule, we just don't know the date yet." --Robert Wilonsky
