Ilary Blasi: Loses Clothes, Does Vanity Fair

image

Francesco Totti’s wife, Ilary Blasi, is featured on the October cover of the Italian Vanity Fair.

Why is this news? Well, aside from the fact that she’s rather gorge – and photographed wearing Chanel -  Ms B expels quite a few interesting bits of information about her lifestyle and her relationship with Francesco. We’ve translated the juicer bits of the story for your perusal after the jump.

But – a word of warning – Ilary is head and shoulders above any WAG diva you’ve previously come in contact with. Par example: “Francesco was shy, sensitive and super jealous but he’s changed. I had to work hard on him – he was a man from last century.”

And our personal favourite: “It bothers me that nobody thinks that Saint Ilary could have a lover in Milan…”



You were Totti’s girlfriend, then his wife – do you think that played a part in helping your career?

“Of course. Francesco is the queen bee, and everyone’s attracted to him. This doesn’t mean I didn’t work hard.”

Do the soccer fans affect your love for Francesco?

“Yes… I admire their passion. Even if I still haven’t properly understood their passion. I don’t see Totti the idol.”

How do you mean?
“Sometimes I don’t understand if he has played better than another player. For me he is only my husband.”

The shirt he wore that said, “you’re the one” – who was that dedicated to – you or the fans section in the stadium?
“Are you crazy? Me.”

Totti says he’s ready for a third child.
“Let him say what he wants. I’m 27 and I am not about to say no more, but I want a break, Christian and Chanel have worn me out.”

What will you call the next child?
“We got criticized for naming our daughter Chanel. But no one said anything about Lavinia Elkann calling her child Oceano. If she were born in Milan, where they name their daughters Diamante, Chanel would have sounded better.”

Interviewer goes into her home where he meets her son, daughter and Francesco – who is sleeping on the couch.

“Look, Francesco is like this, one day they paint him as a hero, the next day he is a womanizer, and then he returns to being the person who helps the poor. But I’m always the one who pays the consequences.”

Why?
“I am the most cheated on wife in Italy – isn’t that what the Italian papers say? I’ve learned not to pay any attention to it anymore. It bothers me that nobody thinks that Saint Ilary could have a lover in Milan…”

Are you thinking about the scandal with Flavia Vento (Italian showgirl/B grade actress who claims to have had an affair with Totti)?
“It was incredibly vicious. I was pregnant – I could have lost the baby due to the shock. No one thought of that?”

Vento talked about the affair in an interview; it wasn’t gossip…
“It’s her word against Francesco. I was in a bad state, I was consumed by the situation like a crazy person. But fortunately Francesco and I have the same values, the same philosophy for life, the same objectives and our love. I never doubted him.”

What do you think of Vento?
“It’s not her fault. She was promised a lot and she believed them. I have a problem with the person that constructed the story and was able to sell it. It’s absurd but I know it could happen again, in two years or in two months. I saved myself with pride.”

  2. Stephanie?sBojan says:

    Love her, she would be my 1st or 2nd fave wag if I was into that sort of thing. She's pretty funny on Le Iene.

  3. aristeia says:

    The Italian press is relentless and the position of wife of a local/national hero is a lot to deal w/. I see a little diva, but not one that I don’t like. She’s confident in herself, her husband and I think she’s pretty smart and sly. And not too bad to look at. Go her for snagging Totti, but go Totti for snagging her!

  4. *ele* says:

    yea!!I like her as a woman but I cant’t, everyone can’t listent to her complain…she marriged him, she knew how totti is…he is nice, kind a roman hero..yeah..but he is also womanizer, stupid!!everyone in italy knows it!! ok!!she chose it, stop no one was interested in her story about flavia vento. Flavia vento went to the famous island no probs, no one have it. It was an old story it’s closed. cause now everyone in Itlay, every newspaper talk abaut it and not about the juventus supporter hit after the match against bologna. the italian football has a lots of probs, but ours probs r not belen rodriguez or melissa satta or so like they!!our prob is the violence and every italian supporter want that the other people talk about it!!!

  5. TammyV says:

    I like her… she has a badass quality that I can respect. IN addition to that whole drop-dead, supermodel, gorgous thing she is workin. It bothers me that nobody thinks that Saint Ilary could have a lover in Milan????? brilliant!

  6. Kat says:

    Diva? Nah. Honest? Most definitely.
    To me, she’s a cross between Sienna Miller, Billie Piper, and Willa Ford. In a good way.

  7. truly_thata says:

    Great couple…but christian doesn't looks like Totti, he's mommy (mini Ilary) boy

  8. Tres Bien says:

    I love Ilary! I give her much respect.She models and used to be a 'showgirl' as they say in Italia. I think she also used to be on MTV.Ilary has been a major step up for Cesco. He loved exotic dancers back in the day.

    I can see the diva, but I see more of a sarcasm than a whiner. I totally respect that.

  11. Susie says:

    They are perfect for each other.

    Enough said.

  14. lucia says:

    I love Ilary. She is one of my fave WAGs.

  15. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    I really like her. She's honest and upfront – she does seem like a bit of a diva but she's not ashamed of who she is at all. She's got an awesome body for a mum of 2 as well… good on her!

  16. autumnmaple101 says:

    Lucky girl to have Totti. Even if he is a womaniser as claimed.

  17. LynxKitten says:

    "Totti says he’s ready for a third child. “Let him say what he wants. I’m 27 and I am not about to say no more, but I want a break, Christian and Chanel have worn me out.” " Love that line!

  18. Kahtilyn13 says:

    She is beautiful. I have major respect for women who look like that at 27 after having 2 kids. BRAVO!!! And come on who would want to cheat on her!

  19. DC says:

    i like her strong personality and she's really pretty.

  20. Erin says:

    She's gorgeous, but she sounds like a disaster in that interview.

  21. lose that girl says:

    She's pretty. I don't know much about her so I'm guessing her profession is model? I think she has to be a badass with all the crap tossed her way. More power to her, but naming her kid Chanel? Horrible!lose that girl blog

  22. cristina_juve says:

    I like her–she has a little bit of an edge which is nice.

  23. Becca says:

    I Like Her :)
    Shes Pretty And The Way She Handled The Whole ‘Affair’ Situation Was Brilliant.
