Valerie Bertinelli Felt Fat Shamed After Breaking Foot & Gaining

The actress, who has struggled with her weight for years, was ashamed when she saw recent photos from the set of her sitcom, “Hot in Cleveland."

She admitted on "The Talk": "Because I broke my foot three months ago and I've not been able to work out, the weight starts to creep up. Then, I started thinking, 'Why do I feel so much shame?' Because the cameras are on me? Because the paparazzi can’t wait to get a pic...

59-year-old Christie Brinkley (she'll be 60 on Feb. 2) became a household name when she covered Sports Illustrated's illustrious Swimsuit Issue for three consecutive years (1979, 1980, 1981), and on January 14 she was spotted at the party celebrating the 50th anniversary of the annual issue looking better than most of the younger models.

But Christie isn't the only star over the age of 50 who still looks good. In fact, we'd probably have to say that 50 is the new 30 for these women, few of whom -- if any -- appear to have had any "work" done.
