Big Brother Vip, Rosalinda Cannavò to Verissimo: “I thought it was better to die”
A dark page that he had the courage to put pen to paper in the autobiographical book The reflection of me:
“When I reached 32 kilos I also abused medicines: I knew that that could lead me to feel very bad, but it didn’t scare me. I regarded death almost as a liberation. I couldn’t stand being another person anymore: the real part of me wanted to be freed as soon as possible “.
A profound suffering resulting from some choices that Rosalinda she made to affirm herself as an actress, first of all her name change with that of ‘Adua’:
“I had entrusted my life to other people. I was told that I had to lose weight for television. For this reason, for many years I have sunk into anorexia, but I did not realize. I didn’t have the perception of what I was like. I believed everything they said to me and let myself be influenced. In addition to the name change, I changed internally: I began to behave differently from how I was, this was wearing me out inside ”.
Among the people with whom Rosalinda The screenwriter Teodosio Losito, who died four years ago and for whom there is an ongoing process, also interfaced in this tortuous path:
“It was a very tough event that woke me up from a nightmare. I realized that I had to get away from that world that was destroying me as it did with him. After his death I made a trip to Lourdes to rediscover the faith I had lost over the years. Today I feel Theodosius very close. Wherever he is, I think that every day – and he adds – I hope justice does the upor course”.
Now, Rosalinda has left behind the old and tormented Adua and declared:
“Adua no longer exists, it’s just a memory. This nightmare is finally fake. Today I no longer allow anyone to take advantage of me ”.
