Days ago, the actress Paula Di Chello went to the television series happy moms to promote his new book. However, near the end, the interview took an unexpected turn and she ended up rremember a scene of gender violence that she experienced with the actor Gerardo Romano when, in 2005, they were colleagues in the Telefe strip love is said. After the news spread and the accused himself gave his version, the former Ugly Duckling I’m going through THE M (America), where he gave more details about what he experienced.
When he was about to say goodbye happy momsDi Chello received an unexpected question from the driver. As if he already knew the answer, Andy Chiarello wanted to know if he had had a problem with Gerardo Romano. With complete honesty, the interviewee answered in the affirmative and reported: “In one of the scenes, in a corridor, without it being scripted, he puts me against the wall, sticks a pacifier in me, bites my mouth and makes me bleed.”
And I add: “He told me I was a fool. Surely I will not have reacted as he expected… I let the scene continue because that’s what they tell you as an actor: until the director says ‘cut’ you can’t stop. He should have done it.” They worked together on love is saidthe soap opera produced by Enrique Estévanez that was on the air from 2005 and 2006, where he embodied the unpleasant villain while she played her henchman.
A few days after sharing his testimony almost by chance, he stopped by the América studio to chat with Ángel de Brito and his panelists. There, she explained that she revealed it because he felt that he was “in the living room of a house” and because, in addition, many years have passed.
“It happened a long time ago and I said it, it prescribed. I’m telling you because it’s something that took me away from the profession and that made me feel very bad. I didn’t quit acting, I kept working but always with a lot of reluctance. I tried to go to projects with less sexual themes, although I was in Veron the tiger last year before. But well, because I have already recovered, ”she detailed.
He then assured that it was not a matter of a single scene, but that having the actor from the fringe it was not easy at all. “The issue with Romano was that basically He was a drawn and aggressive man. He was furious. He was aggressive all the time, from the moment you walked in and you ran into him in the hallway. We had to work together and he was beside himself. He understood that it is one thing to be outside the recording or inside, I understand that he has a method, but He was completely abusive to me permanently,” he asserted.
“Was the bite intentional or brute?” Brito wanted to know. In response, Di Chello said: “I have several theories, if you want I’ll tell you the funniest. I was much taller than him and that bothered him, from the beginning. He saw me and he didn’t like it. He was uncomfortable, and then there was something about me that didn’t close him. That I never got into that game that he wanted me to get into. At that time he was the unbearable seductive heartthrob and that was something he resorted to.
In turn, she stressed that Romano had a hierarchy thanks to her career and that this left her at a disadvantage in terms of power dynamics. That’s why, less than a decade ago, she decided to keep quiet. As she stated, I didn’t want them to say that I was doing it to have a few minutes of fame.
