Matthew Perry’s upcoming memoir, Buddies, Lovers, and the Massive Horrible Factor, has already garnered a whole lot of pre-publication press for the harrowing tales Perry shares about his wrestle with habit and a near-death expertise in 2018. However the ebook additionally boasts some juicy Hollywood anecdotes — just like the time Perry made out with Valerie Bertinelli in entrance of her then-husband Eddie Van Halen (although it doesn’t appear to be he was, uh, acutely aware sufficient to see it).

4 years earlier than he was forged on Buddies, Perry starred alongside Bertinelli on the short-lived sitcom Sydney (Bertinelli performed the titular personal eye, whereas Perry performed her over-protective cop brother). Like so many in that period, Perry was head-over-heels for Bertinelli, tending to a heavy crush for somebody he admits was not solely “approach out of my league” but additionally “married to one of the well-known rock stars on the planet, Eddie Van Halen.”

Perry insists his emotions for Bertinelli had been so actual that he “harbored elaborate fantasies about her leaving Eddie Van Halen and residing out the remainder of her days with me.” That, clearly, didn’t occur, however Perry says he acquired as shut as he might one night time whereas hanging at Bertinelli and Van Halen’s place.

“Because the night time progressed, it was clear that Eddie had loved the fruits of the vine a bit of too arduous, yet one more time, and finally he simply handed out, not ten ft away from us, however nonetheless,” Perry writes. “This was my likelihood! When you assume I didn’t even have an opportunity in hell, you’d be improper, expensive reader — Valerie and I had a protracted, elaborate make-out session… I instructed her I had thought of doing that for a very long time, and he or she had mentioned it proper again to me.” (A rep for Bertinelli didn’t instantly return Rolling Stone’s request for remark.)

The joys, nevertheless, was rapidly gone. Perry says Bertinelli “made no point out” of the make-out the subsequent day and was “behaving — as she ought to have been — like this was only a regular day.” Whereas Perry says he “acquired the trace,” he was “devastated” inside and endured “many a tearful night time” afterward. Aid lastly got here when Sydney was canceled, and he now not needed to see Bertinelli. 

To place the right bow on this anecdote, Perry introduced in a little bit of Sigmund Freud, tying his unrequited crush to his points with — you guessed it — his mom. “I’ve spent my life being drawn to unavailable girls,” Perry writes. “It doesn’t take a psychology diploma to determine that this had one thing to do with my relationship with my mom.”
