Bonnie Franklin and Valerie Bertinelli's friendship went back 40 years from the time they co-starred on One Day at a Time together, so it is no surprise that Valerie was heartbroken to hear the news of Bonnie's death today as a result of complications involving pancreatic cancer.
In response to the 69-year-old's passing, Valerie said:

Noo, this is super sad!
Bonnie Franklin, from One Day At a Time fame, has passed away.
She was 69 years old.
The death stems from complications with pancreatic cancer — which she was diagnosed with in September 2012.
During her career, Bonnie later went on to The Young and the Restless and Hot in Cleveland, which reunited her with One Day pal Valerie Bertinelli.
We're so sad over this! We hope her family and friends can cope with this as best they can.

Looks like Valerie Bertinelli's former One Day at a Time co-star Bonnie Franklin is ready to get hot!
Franklin will guest star on Bertinelli's show Hot in Cleveland during the upcoming season, which premieres on TV Land on Jan 19.
This will mark the first time that Bertinelli and Franklin have acted together in a scripted TV show in 26 years!
Another reunion to take place during the upcoming season of Cleveland will be between Betty White and Mary Tyler Moore, who worked together on The Mary Tyler Moore Show back in the 1970s!
Sounds like it should be a fun season! We'll look forward to seeing these reunions when Cleveland starts up again early next year!
Will U tune in for season 2 of Hot In Cleveland in January?
