Paola Barale: «Me and Raz Degan, that we do not talk to each other»
Updated: 17 april, 2018
The showgirl tells the farewell to the former shipwreck of the Island of the Famous, which would seem final. Bursting in 2002, their love was intense but tormented, full of leaps and separations
A year ago, in these same days, the fans dreamed of the happy ending: Raz Degan and Paola Barale together again. He had just won the Island of the Famous (it was April 12th, ed ), she had gone to see him and a kiss had given hope that after three years of distance the two could find each other. Instead, no, at least according to Paola, as a guest on Sunday In stressed that among them things are not so rosy.
“It was such a strong, important relationship, that we are friends, we love each other, we respect each other, we have two separate happy lives, but not always.
Even now when we meet, there are times when we have not yet reached this balance. We do not talk to each other right now. ” A complex relationship, in short, made of re-approaches and as many distances.
Their love story began in 2001 when Paola was still tied to the dancer Gianni Sperti, known in 1995 and married three years later. Degan, at the time, was considered responsible for the break, even if today Paola denies: “The relationship with Gianni was already over, but we did not know. Nobody will believe it, but I am a super faithful woman ».
A great love, theirs, full of common interests and little desire to start a family, at least they have always declared unanimous. “I never married him because I do not think he really wanted to. It was not a primary desire, we had a wonderful understanding, we did many things, we felt satisfied, I might even have married … But I’m happy for how things went. If we were married, perhaps we would have left even earlier. ” There were, however, also difficult moments and temporary breaks, until the definitive break of 2015, announced on Facebook by the showgirl: «Raz and I decided to take different paths», he wrote surprisingly those who imagined them together in life. A rapprochement would seem unlikely today, in short, but Paola has never denied that their story is “destined to last”.
