Keep your eyes open.
Love Is Blind star Giannina Ghibelli spoke exclusively on E! News’ “Nightly Pop” show Aug. 2 about what she thought of Too Hot to Handle alum Francesca Farago after their explosive confrontation after the altar. “I was very uncomfortable,” Giannina explained. “Literally, my insides were boiling because I could feel my blood literally boiling, but at the same time I felt sorry for her. We all know each other. I hate feeling rejected at parties. I felt sorry for her in that moment.”
Francesca first made headlines in August 2020 for dating Giannina’s longtime and not-so-old boyfriend Damian Powers, and while the Netflix reality stars claim they “remain friends,” Giannina was stunned that Damian invited Francesca as his significant other to the After the Altar anniversary party.
“Does she know she’s on the wrong Netflix show?” Giannina snapped explosively on the episode. “These are my friends, this is my scene, this is my boyfriend. I feel like you’re friends, but I’m letting you know right now if you ever try to do anything, you messed with the wrong bitch.”
Nevertheless, today Giannina lays the blame more on her ex Damian than on Francesca. “Damian and I didn’t have the best relationship,” she reflects. “Maybe that’s why he felt he had to bring someone with him. [We dated for two and a half years, so he knew what would happen after that. He knew I wasn’t going to let him walk away that easily.”
Giannina continued: “When I was talking to [Francesca], I didn’t know if she was really out of touch or just trying to be nice to me, but I felt like she was getting mixed signals, too. You just wanted to get to the bottom of it. It didn’t really feel like that to me.”
The Love Is Blind star stayed true to her warning to Francesca (“I’m also going to let someone know if they get too close to her if they shouldn’t”), but G is done with Damian once and for all.
“I’m officially single,” Giannina announced proudly. “You heard it here first! I feel really good about myself. I’m happy, I’m just traveling, living my life, the life of a nomad, and just seeing where the world takes me next.”
And let’s just say she hasn’t given up hope when it comes to her next man: “Someone said I should pick a soccer player,” Giannina teases. “So any soccer players who are European and can handle a little spice, I love watching soccer.”
