Vitale's contestation has caused the divorce process to stall and drag on longer. Still, Bertinilli keeps a cool head and maintains that their prenup waivers any temporary and permanent spousal support.

The house has three bedrooms with a gray exterior and large windows revealing the stunning views of the San Fernando Valley below.
