As of February 2012:

Three months later, new General Manager Kelly says the freshness of the new dining room has not waned for her.

Kelly now holds employee meetings to train staff on food safety and proper customer service. She and Kim also meet weekly with their newly hired chef, Matt, to go over any kitchen issues.

Chef Matt has become Kim’s right-hand man. He’s helping to bring in more fresh ideas, and today there are very few frozen items on the menu. Kelly is excited for Chef Matt’s new menu to roll out — she can’t wait to see customers’ reactions.

Ann has a hard time staying away. “I guess having a business for almost 30 years and having all the decisions to make is hard to walk away from.” says Kelly.

“To see how Restaurant: Impossible made a tribute to my brother still puts tears in my eyes,” Kelly says. “I know that he would love it. I know I do!” She wants to take the restaurant to new heights and thanks Robert Irvine for giving them a fresh start.

Update: Sadly, Ann decided she could no longer invest any more of her own money into the restaurant and on March 8, Valley View closed its doors for good.

    This is the only part of the show that I don't like, it would only take 60 seconds to air what I just read. Why not include it in the show. You know of course they want traffic on the website and that's why they do this.

    I think because these shows are new that the 'verdict' isn't in when the shows are produced? Just a guess.
