Eddie’s ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli described this in her new book which covered his last meal
In September 2020, Eddie was in the hospital for what was said to be a “minor stroke”. After the stroke, he tried to speak but they could not understand him. Eddie’s speech was so affected that it was hard to understand him. At one point, Eddie leaned closer and took the oxygen mask off and asked “What do you want?” and Ed answered clearly “pizza please”.
Everyone around him laughed as they knew that pizza was one of Eddie’s favorite foods and it’s nice to know that he went out on a high note just like he would have wanted it to be.
