Giuliana Rancic is a pro on the red carpet and in life. She has interviewed everyone from George Clooney — her favorite man! — to all of the Kardashians. So what celebrity could possibly come into one of her restaurants in Chicago that would bring theGiuliana & Bill star to tears?
Plus, G recently opened up about Duke’s terrible twos and the possibility of expanding their family.
Another day another dollar for Giuliana Rancic. Not only is she our (sometimes) favorite E! News personality with a brand spankin' new contract through 2016. She and her husband, Bill Rancic and son Duke, also star in their own hit reality show, Giuliana & Bill. And did I mention she has a popular clothing line on HSN??
Well apparently that is not enough green for G! Crazy Days and Nights is reporting that Giuliana rakes in some major bones in a not-so-typical way.
Is E! News looking to replace the face of the network? On the heels of Giuliana Rancic signing a deal to keep her at the entertainment news network through 2016, E! signs-on Maria Menounos to do exactly what Giuliana does — host, interview and star in reality TV.
G and her husband Bill Rancic, have been talking about moving permanently to Chicago for years, so did E! finally listen to the rumblings and decide they needed someone on hand to eventually step into the giant hole that would be left if G was to really leave? And let's face it, you could not do much better than Maria Menounos.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic's lives have been an open book even before they started documenting their marriage on their hit reality showGiuliana and Bill. She is a long time E! correspondent, and he is a past Apprentice winner and public speaker. Also, given that Giuliana considers the ultimate fame mongering reality persona to be her second mother, it's only natural everything she and her husband do involve a camera crew.
Giuliana shared her struggles with infertility with her fans, as well as her battle with breast cancer. However, when the couple's son was born via gestational surrogate, they didn't allow the cameras in to film the birth. Instead they opted to video the birth themselves so they could have it for their personal footage.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic have finally had their dream come true. The couple welcomed a baby boy via surrogate into the world late Wednesday evening.
""The 'Duke' has landed. Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz. G & I feel blessed beyond words…We did it!," Bill ecstatically tweeted.
"Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives," Giuliana told E! News. "Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!"
Not only is E! correspondent Giuliana Rancic expecting a baby with husband Bill Rancic via gestational surrogate, she’s also got an upcoming series on NBC called Ready for Love which she’ll co-host with Bill. What more could a woman want? How about Kris Jenner as a bestie? Umm….
It turns out that the two ladies are not just part of the E! Network together (or, let’s face it, the Kardashian Network), they are also really close friends. Who knew?
The E! News anchor and her Apprentice winning husband have certainly been through a lot this past year, so I am thrilled that Giuliana and Bill Rancic have some exciting news to share. After discovering she had breast cancer while undergoing fertility treatments, the couple didn’t give up on their dream to have a child. The pair announced in April that they were expecting a baby via gestational surrogate. Reality TV reports that their upcoming bundle of joy will be a boy!
“We are beyond excited to be having a little boy,” Bill says “We are so ready for everything that comes with being a new mom and dad!”
His wife agrees, citing, “This truly is a miracle baby.”
Giuliana Rancic has been bravely battling cancer in the public eye and the reality star has openly and honestly let fans share her journey. Tonight marks the premiere of Giuliana & Bill. This season the couple will give us a glimpse into their harrowing experience dealing with Giuliana’s diagnosis, all while still struggling to achieve their goal of having a child.
Speaking about the dramatic season and the events that took place during filming, Giuliana admits it’s been a struggle to accept her new body following a double mastectomy to remove cancerous tissue from her breasts. Months after the operation, Giuliana confesses she still felt self-conscious on camera.
“I’d be about to interview someone and I’d notice they’d see my pulling up the dress and [wonder] if they were looking at my boobs,” Giuliana shares. “It went from ‘I think I’m showing too much cleavage’ to ‘Cover these damn things up.’”
“I felt like my body let me down,” she tells Us Weekly.
And yesterday on the TODAY show, Giuliana, appearing along with husband Bill Rancic, gave fans an update on her health and her quest to become a mother. “I won’t be needing chemotherapy,” she reveals, but she is taking an oral medication that will continue to make getting pregnant difficult.
In light of the diagnosis and Giuliana’s continued treatment, the couple is considering adoption and surrogacy to achieve their goal of becoming parents. “We’re definitely having to explore other options… We absolutely want a child,” she explained.
“Whether you have a baby naturally, through adoption, through surrogacy, it’s your baby. You’re going to love that baby and that’s all that matters,” Giuliana added.
Giuliana and Bill are very much supportive of each other and this experience has strengthened their marriage. “It helped us find the humor in everything because when you go through something this tough, you have to, at some point, laugh, and get back to your normal life…,” Giuliana revealed of their incredible relationship. “It has reinvigorated our relationship and we’re closer than ever.” Bill agreed, “It makes the little things seem not so important.”
Finally, tonight Giuliana and Bill return for their fifth season and the couple allows us a first-hand glimpse into the moment that changed both their lives. A preview of the season premiere is below.
