With the amount of comedic talent that Pete Holmes has on display, his house is sure to be a fun place to be. The beneficiary, Valerie Chaney, Holmes’s very private wife, who is seldom seen on media and is every bit a private person as opposed to Holmes’s publicity. But regardless of her stance on public attention, Chaney can be seen now and then, tagging alongside Holmes to one of his comedy events, red carpets, or one of the many award ceremonies he gets invited to. Chaney who seldom takes on the spotlight is not known amongst the most loyal fans of Pete Holmes. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Valerie Chaney.
Valerie Chaney has never talked about her early life and has scattered a few details on her parents in the numbered Instagram posts. She was born to Bill and Beth Chaney and is close to her grandfather, who she calls Paw-Paw. She has a brother, Derek Chaney, and the pair seem to be as close as siblings can be. As for her education, Chaney has a Master’s degree in Education from the University of California, Davis. She has not talked about her earlier associations and has kept silence on her age, date, and place of birth.
A Real Girl:
After graduating from UC Davis with a master’s degree in education, Chaney took up a teaching job as a middle school teacher in Northern California. During her time there, Cheny found out that young girls struggled with self-esteem issues and started helping them tackle it. Eventually, Chaney found her way to the REALgirl Empowerment Program and started helping girls aged nine to 16 with their self-esteem issues and allowing them to fully explore their potential. Now, Chaney is a Real Girls instructor based in Los Angeles and teaches girls to tackle issues of self-confidence, body image, and self-esteem. And while Chaney is mostly the one helping the young girls, she believes that she has learned as much about herself as she has about them.
In 2019, Chaney opened Studio A Dance in the Hyperion Arts Complex in L.A. and started offering dance and meditation classes called Wild and Free.
Valorie Chaney is happily married to Patrick Holmes and the pair have been married since late 2017. Chaney met Holmes in early 2015 and the pair began dating soon after. Eventually, Holmes decided to propose to Chaney and took her on a hot air balloon ride as it was something that Chaney wanted to try for quite a while. However, Holmes was put off by the attitude of the driver who kept calling everything “Gay.”
“I could feel the heat of his breath and the tickle of his whiskers, and I’m nervous, and he’s operating the thing and this is completely true — I don’t like it either — but he kept calling things ‘gay.’ I don’t know this man. This is the most romantic day of my life and he’s like, ‘That’s Janet Jackson’s ranch. Gay,’”
It took so much out of Holmes that he simply took out the ring and said he would be honored to call her his wife. Luckily, Chaney saw the funny side of it, and the pair went on to tie the knot in 2017. The pair’s only child, Lila Jane, was born in September 2018.
