After the uproar unleashed by the divisive docufilm about her version of the end of her marriage with Francesco Totti - Unica, in first place in the Netflix charts and not only in Italy - Ilary Blasi, in an exclusive interview with Silvia Toffanin, returns to the phrase that is in the film and that she had pronounced in Verissimo on March 20, 2022, in the midst of the media storm that had just overwhelmed her and Francesco Totti to defend him: "I came here in front of everyone and I gave to the press and journalists. I defended what I thought was the truth but, evidently, the newspapers had another truth, which was the right one, but I didn't know it. I reacted this way because I had a different version from theirs. I apologize to the press. I believed my husband, as I always have. When I found out the truth, I went in a different direction."
In the docufilm emerges the fact that Totti would have asked Blasi, to try to save their marriage, to give up, among other things, her job on TV. On this point, the presenter clarifies: "He has always been jealous of me, but it was nothing new. Right now, however, there is a lot of attention on this topic and honestly I don't feel like comparing this with the tragedies we hear these days. We are no longer husband and wife, but he will forever be the father of my children. I think he was confused and scared too."
To Silvia Toffanin who asks her if she didn't feel betrayed by a certain "Rome" that she knew, but didn't speak, Ilary replies: "Yes, I felt betrayed, but up to a certain point: 'Who comes to tell you something like that?' I understood them, it wasn't easy. Now people know another point of view. I don't want to convince anyone. It's my story and I've told it."
And to the question if she thinks in her heart, in the light of what happened, that there may have been other betrayals in these twenty years - starting from the first insinuations to today's epilogue - Blasi replies: "Yes, even if I have never received concrete evidence."
