Valerie Bertinelli - Bertinelli Regrets Bad Mood On Proposal Evening

A bad dinner almost wrecked one of the most romantic evenings in actress Valerie Bertinelli's life - she was in a foul mood when new husband Tom Vitale proposed in Italy.
Bertinelli would like to relive the 2010 moment her then-boyfriend asked her to be his wife - because she wouldn't have been so grumpy if she knew what was about to happen.
Revealing all to U.S. chat show host Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday (09Mar11), she recalled, "It was our first trip ever to Italy and we're both Italian... We were in Florence. It was, like, the sunset, we had just had dinner and it was a crappy dinner, which is really not OK in Italy.
"I went up to my room and was reading Time magazine... So I'm reading the magazine and he's got this little glint in his eye and he's lying in the bed next to me. I'm like, 'Stop it. Leave me alone' - because I'm trying to read. He's like, 'Really?' And I'm like, 'Really. I just want to read this magazine. It was a crappy dinner. We're in Italy. It should've been an amazing dinner.'
"I was really p**sed off. I just wanted to read my magazine. And then I just closed my eyes and he just puts this little box on my chest. It was from (jewellers) Tiffany's.
"I said, 'Why did you spend so much money? Why did you go to Tiffany's? You should've gone some place else with cheaper jewellery.' I don't know why he married me."
Vitale and Bertinelli exchanged vows in a surprise ceremony at their home in Malibu, California on New Year's Day (01Jan11).
