After the break up, Valentine said that she felt lost and that her identity had become absorbed into being a Go-Go. Returning to her rock roots, she formed the World’s Cutest Killers, a line up she thought would be successful, featuring former Girlschool guitarist Kelly Johnson, her old friend Jesse Sublett on bass, drummer (future A&R man) Craig Aaronson, and keyboardist Jebin Bruni. The group attracted the attention of producer Mike Chapman and recorded demos, which were scrapped, and the band split up. Several other bands and line ups went nowhere, and Valentine returned to school. In 1990, the Go-Go’s reunited for concerts and a CD of greatest hits, but split again soon after.

The Go-Go’s began working together again, with Valentine co-writing “The Whole World Lost Its Head” on Return To The Valley of The Go-Go’s, a song which became the band’s highest charting U.K. single. The band released a new CD God Bless The Go-Go’s in 2001, toured extensively for many years, and appeared in a popular DVD live concert, The Go-Go’s Live In Central Park. Determined not to let the Go-Go’s define her this time around, Valentine kept The Delphines going, and the band released two albums, The Delphines (1996) and Cosmic Speed (2001).

In 2005, Valentine released a solo recording, Light Years, that she co-produced, wrote, arranged and performed the guitar and vocal tracks. Light Years featured musician friends, including Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley, Guns and Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, Lenny Kravitz, guitarist Craig Ross, and drummers Clem Burke and Pete Thomas. She began the record while pregnant in 2002 and wrote several songs with then husband, attorney and musician Steven Weisburd.

In 2006, Valentine returned to her hometown to reside. She has been featured on the cover of the Fall 2010 issue of Texas Music, a February 2007 issue of the Austin Chronicle, and the February 2009 issue of Austin Woman.
