Valerie Bertinelli has been candid about her wellness journey with her followers.

"I’ve been avoiding facing what I got confirmation last night and I didn’t want to talk about it last night. I wanted to sleep on it because it really hurt my feelings," the mom-of-one, 63, shared.

But it really hurt my feelings to know that I’m not going to be asked back to be on Kids Baking Championship really sucks."
