Valerie's Home Cooking

Unfiltered coconut oil has a coconut taste, filtered, not so much. The sat fat content is too high for me. 

Ah, that explains it.  I've never used the unfiltered kind.  I tried a small bottle of the clear one a few years back but never bought it again because of the saturated fat.

I’ve always enjoyed Valerie’s show above most of the others on FN. I’m not sure what’s happened to her, other than her exhusband dying, but I really don’t like watching her latest shows in her new dark kitchen. 

I hate the kitchen set this season!!

I caught a part of Valerie's show today. She was "teaching" three "super fans" via zoom how to make a meal, part of which was Italian. Maybe this was an older show as her kitchen didn't look dark to me. But she sounded like a preschool teacher as she gave instructions so I had to change channels.

I appreciate that they're practicing cation during the pandemic and filming remotely, but these folks identified as home cooks. Valerie gave instructions re the pasta water like they just came out of 20-year comas.

Super Fans, you say. Not friends of the producers or people who defended her on social media? Not meant to be perceived as experienced cooks, either, eh?

Anyway, there was no mention of her mother, child or late ex-husband, so it can be done!

No it was the current kitchen which doesn't look so dark to me either.  Most of it is white with one medium blue wall on the right side.  I don't love the new kitchen but I don't hate it either.  My dislike is mostly the oven.  I'm not a fan of those ovens with two doors that you pull open like a French Door.  People say they like the idea because you don't have to lean over a hot oven door, but IMO unless you're covered past the elbows in potholder mitts there's always a chance of bumping your hand or arm into one of those hot open doors.  I admit I'm probably not coordinated enough anymore to avoid that, LOL.

Valerie’s Home Cooking is off of the schedule except for older episodes early in the morning.  The show used to be so enjoyable until her ex died . 
Looks like Valerie is done taping Kids Baking Championship and is now following Wolfie around on tour . Her latest post was eating tour bus food .  Is she now on the tour bus ? I think it’s great to support her kid but weird that she’s following him around  like a groupie ! Why do I have a feeling she’s reliving her time following Eddie around on tour ?  
I highly doubt she is still with Tom, there is never a mention or a sign of him .  
She definitely seemed to be having some kind of breakdown on the Today show with her cringeworthy appearances , now she’s all out wacky !

I wonder if NBC will pick up her pilot with Demi Lovato who is also a mess .

I guess the next thing we will see from Valerie is promotion for her book. Should be interesting!

You ain't never lied....his birthday was August 14th and she used to give greetings on her Twitter and IG.  Matter of fact, she always had pics of him on her IG account, I don't know when's the last time I've seen his face.

Going by Wikipedia’s numbers, this has been the longest season to date

I guess between the new kitchen set (which I don't like) and the Wolfie and VanHalen talk, all the episodes just ran together.

Valerie called someone on Twitter an “asshat” for insulting Wolfie !  She also posted a picture of Eddie again on the anniversary of his death ! Oh and she’s following Wolfie around on tour like a groupie .

WTF happened to her ? I saw a repeat of her show earlier in FN this weekend and she seems sane ! She talked about Tom and friends and was not obsessing about her time with Eddie .

Will FN be ok with her swearing and insulting on Twitter when she judges kids in baking shows ?  
Did her  sitcom with looney Demi Lovato car picked up ? BTW today crazy Demi made a statement that the term alien was offensive to extraterrestrials!

I listen to a drive time radio show when I drive home from work, and today they were talking about a plaque some local fans in Pasadena paid $6500 to have installed. My first thought... was Valerie there crying over her dead ex husband?

I saw today that she’s filed for divorce with her 2nd husband.  I know many have been speculating, so now it’s out there.

We suspected that this was going to happen.  I saw her this week on "In Her Own Words" on REELZ and she spent 10 minutes talking about Eddie and 30 seconds on Tom  It was filmed prior to Eddie's death.  She did shed some light on her sensitivity about her weight.  She said that her father fat shamed her mother for having gained weight so it was a sore subject with her.

I saw this coming also - after Eddie's death and Valerie's craziness.  Hopefully she can get to a therapist who at this time will help her.  My thoughts go out to Tom.  Who knows what the hell he has been thru.

Yes, i think Tom is the unsuspected/undeserving victim of all this craziness.

To be honest I've gotten creep vibes from Tom from the get go.  I feel a bit like that nursery rhyme "I do not like thee Doctor Fell, the reason why I cannot tell..." but anyway that's the way I've always felt about him.

I remember when they got engaged, and then married, there were a lot of articles saying he wasn't a good choice, and his previous relationships didn't end well.

I guess I just didn't see enough of him to get the creepy vibe and never read anything about him... doesn't matter any more he is history now...

Yeah this is news to me.  I never got a creepy vibe but on the other hand I never saw him as being the best match for her either.  Just something about the way they interacted when he was on the show. 

I wonder if all of Valerie's recent breakdown-like behavior on her show and in interviews precipitated the breakup or was a symptom of it.  I have this scenario in my mind that Eddie's death triggered her to an overreaction that could only exacerbate any existing marital problems between them.

This went through my mind as well.

Add the facts that he hasn't been seen or mentioned in any of her social sites as of late, plus the eppy where she went on and on about how much she loved Eddie's mom (when I remember an eppy where she spoke fondly of Tom's late mom Helen), I knew something was up.

While not surprised, I feel bad that her marriage broke up.

Her book comes out in January or February of 2022, so she will have to do the book tour thing, appear on TV talk shows, etc.  So her marriage breakup is bound to come up.

It seems like her FN show is not on the schedule, even in reruns. ??

It's been uncomfortable to watch her unraveling over the past year. She likes to post a lot of glamorous "throw-back" photos on IG of herself when she was younger and thinner.  I really think she has a problem.

I never got a creepy vibe from Tom.  Didn't she meet him through her brother?  It would have been difficult (I think) for any spouse to go through her very public, prolonged grieving of Eddie, and the following around of Wolfie. It looks like she is trying to re-live her past with Eddie. I also feel bad for Eddie's widow. SHE was married to him when he died, but Valerie appears to be the grieving widow.

No idea about Tom but she met Eddie thanks to her brothers.

Not in the "they knew him" way though. They just talked her into using her fame to get them backstage at a concert.

Valerie has some sort of live chat (this week, I think?) so promos are happening. On one hand that makes me think she was well-prepared to face questions. On the other hand the announcement was made during a holiday weekend so who knows. 

I thought Tom carried himself pretty well for someone who was not a television personality, and as a couple they seemed to welcome each others' families & friends. Who knows what happens behind closed doors, but for me (someone who has watched Valerie for years and has also spent some time on the couch) Valerie seems almost too open about her unhappiness - like she's looking everywhere for an answer where there may not be one. And the tone of her focus on the ex-husband is...odd. People are entitled to all their grief, but everything Val has posted/said makes it appear like there is history trying to be rewritten.

I really do like her and even though I think sm may not be the place for her she seems stoked about her kid's grammy nom?
