Checking back in the archives, we discovered that Valerie officially took the breadstick baton from fellow recovering nosher Kirstie Alley on April 4, 2007--almost exactly a year-and-a-half to the day that it was divulged that ex-hubbie Eddie, while vacationing in Hawaii, got down on one knee and proposed to Liszewski at a Tiffany jewelry store. (Talk about one-stop shopping!)
Of course, we sincerely wish the 53-year-old Eddie (remember the good old days when he wanted to be called "Edward" so they'd take him more seriously as a musician--as if anyone standing next to David Lee Roth or, worse, Sammy Hagar, could ever hope to be taken completely seriously?) the best in his second marital go-round with Liszewski. And no, rumor mongers, she's not the educator/stripper from Van Halen's "Hot For Teacher" video.
Yes, it is true that that Van Halen did first meet Liszewski when she was doing publicity for an adult film called Sacred Sinn for which Edwar…make that Eddie composed a few songs. And yes, a glance at what seems to an old resume of hers at (this is good) http://www.janiesgotagun.com/ does reveal that the 38-year-old Liszewski has worked as a "Stuntwoman/Actress" with such credits as "Salsa Dancer" (Along Came Polly), "Blowtorch Dancer" (Bubble Boy) and the ever-coveted role of "Dancer/Vampire" (From Dusk Till Dawn). But she also worked as "Stunt Double Actress" for (this is even better) Jennifer Lopez on The Wedding Planner. So there.
