Valerie Bertinelli Kissed A Woman...Blah, Blah, Blah

If you've been stuck in some lonely corner of the pop-culture world for the past couple of days, you might not have heard that "One Day At A Time One Day at a Time is a long-running American situation comedy that portrayed a divorced mother, played by Bonnie Franklin, her two teenage daughters (Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli) and their building superintendent (Pat Harrington, Jr.). " star Valerie Bertinelli is out hawking her new autobiography this week.

Yep, Valerie was a busy gal when she was married to Eddie Van Halen. They both did lots of cocaine, they both cheated during the marriage, she even admits to kissing a girl. Who knew that a woman married to a arena rock and roller would do such stuff?

Yeah, I know. I should care about this stuff. But I don't. Maybe it's because her "news" doesn't surprise me. Maybe it's just because Brittney Spears has set the bar pretty high for shocking celebrity news. Or maybe I'm just weary of it all.

I understand that breathlessly writing about this stuff would nab me Perez Hilton-size traffic. (BTW "By the way." See digispeak.

But I just don't care. I don't care if "High School Musical" star Zac Efron is gay (and no, I don't think that photo circulating around the web is really him). I'm not interested in the fact that Jamie Lynn Jamie Lynn can refer to:

But I don't care. And I'm not going to do that stereotypical cable TV news channel way of covering these stories. You know, the eye-rolling about the public's fascination with celebrities. Followed by a 14-minute roundtable on Amy Winehouse's latest skank-chic look.

Who know that when I started writing about television, I would one day feel like an intellectual?
