Celebrities are just like us, which means they have the same kinds of fears we may have. Worrying about your safety or that of your family becomes much more important when the public knows who you are, and possibly where you live.

Valerie Bertinelli recently had a scare in her own home on Wednesday. The actress and Food Network host shared footage of what appeared to be would-be burglars scoping out her property one night.

Bertinelli first shared the footage through her Instagram story, but later posted the same video to her TikTok page, where it was viewed by tens of thousands of fans..

The Video Shows Footage Of At Least Two Men.

According to Bertinelli, theft had become more common in her area. On security camera footage showing the front of her home, a man carrying several bags walks up. The man looks around for a bit before turning around to walk back down the driveway. A timestamp in the upper left corner shows that this took place at 1:14 in the morning, local time.

"We’ve had a string of robberies in my neighborhood, my next-door neighbor included," Bertinelli writes in text overlay on the screen. "This is one of the men that came to scope out my house last night. I think he stopped because he sees my camera lit up. The other one came an hour before him. ****ing scary."

She Shows More Footage Toward The End Of The Video.

In the latter portion of the post, Bertinelli confirmed that she did call the police. She is planning to add more security to her home, including motion detector lights and barbed wire on the fence at the front of her house.
