Giuliana & Bill

After announcing she had breast cancer back in October, Giuliana Rancic continues her battle with the disease.

Today, the E! news reporter revealed she is choosing to undergo a double mastectomy after her double lumpectomy failed to completely eradicate the breast cancer.

Giuliana, 36, appeared on the Today Show this morning with husband Bill Rancic, during which the couple revealed they considered another lumpectomy and radiation. They are, however, electing to go with the more drastic option to make certain the cancer is gone. According to her doctors, the cancer will have a less than 1 percent chance of returning.

“At the end, all it came down to was choosing to live and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life,” Giuliana said of her decision to proceed with the aggressive surgery. “It was not an easy decision but it was the best decision for me.” she says.

“I would like to take the stigma away. ‘Mastectomy’ the word seemed so scary to me at first. After doing research and seeing the advancements, the surgery has come a long way from 20 years ago. The results can be incredible,” added Giuliana.

Another deciding factor for Giuliana is the fact that she and hubby Bill are still trying to have a baby. “If I had chosen to just have another lumpectomy… Then I would have to put off having a baby for several years,” said Giuliana, as the procedures following another lumpectomy could leave her at the age of menopause.

Bill’s support also played a major role in her decision. “Bill said to me, ‘I just need you around for the next 50 years, kid,’ ” said Giuliana. “He said, ‘I don’t care what you look like, I don’t care about the physical portion of this. I just need you around for the next 50 years. So, let’s just get you healthy.’ And that certainly helped me come to a decision.”

Despite the setback, the Giuliana and Bill stars remains positive. “I hope for a full recovery by New Year’s Eve. We’re planning to be in Times Square!” Giuliana says. “2012 is our year,” adds Bill. “We’re going to ring in the New Year happy and healthy.”

Best wishes to Giuliana and Bill.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON GIULIANA’S DECISION TO UNDERGO A DOUBLE MASTECTOMY?


When E! and Style Network star Giuliana Rancic revealed in October that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, people all over rallied to show their support for the star that has shared so much of her life with her fan base. The cancer was discovered when she and her Apprentice winning husband Bill Rancic were preparing for yet another round of IVF to start their family. The couple’s struggles with infertility have been chronicled on their show Giuliana and Bill.

After undergoing a double lumpectomy, a recovering Giuliana sat down with Parade Magazine for an interview. She admits, “When I went public, I thought, ‘OK, I guess a couple of people are going to talk about this,’ but I couldn’t believe it. The outpouring and the love and support was just beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I really relied on a lot of those messages I was receiving through Twitter and email and through blogs right before the surgery and the week I was recovering.”

The inspirational star continues, “I know it sounds so cliché, but I think it helped me recover quicker and it got me in better spirits. The word I kept seeing over and over again was ‘strong.’ ‘Be strong, you’re strong.’ That word has never meant so much to me as it has this past month. I owe that all to the people behind me.”

While her surgery was rough, Giuliana gains strength from her family, friends and fans. She says, “I’m good. I’m hanging in there. I have good days and bad days, but so far so good. I’m very optimistic and I’m just happy to have caught it early. I think that’s really the most important thing. Early detection means so much. I want women to make sure they’re taking care of their health and being proactive.”

Of co-worker Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana gushes, “He’s great. I describe our relationships as like a brother-sister relationship. We pick on each other, he probably picks on me much more than I pick on him, but it’s like a brother would. We have a great time. He’s been great to work with all these years. I love working with him.”

Giuliana and Bill’s relationship has been showcased on their hit show on Style Network. Fans relate to the couple as they navigate and balance relationship and work issues with equal parts humor, love and sincerity. Giuliana has no regrets about putting their lives in the public eye, stating, “We just felt like with every trial and tribulation we’ve put on this show, people have told us how much they learned from it and how it made them feel less alone. We thought that was a pretty incredible opportunity.”

I must agree that part of what makes the pair so appealing is how honest and genuine they are with their struggles. That notion isn’t lost on Giuliana who continues, “The fact that we can help people through our show is an honor. We’re happy to do it and it’s something that we continue to do. We really are like open books. It’s worth it to kind of sacrifice some of my personal life to help others.”

We here at RT are thrilled to hear that Giuliana is focused on healing quickly, and it’s amazing for her to share her story so that others who are suffering may find comfort. We continue to wish her and Bill all the health, happiness and blessings life has to offer!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF GIULIANA’S INTERVIEW? WHAT ARE YOUR WELL WISHES FOR THE COUPLE?


We are pleased to report that four days following her shattering announcement that she is battling breast cancer and scheduled to undergo surgery related to the disease, E! News host Giuliana Rancic is out of surgery and recovering!

Bill Rancic told the Today show his wife is “doing well” following the surgery and the couple views the shocking discovery as a blessing! “We’re viewing this as a gift; it was caught accidentally very, very early,” Bill said, focusing on the positives.

Giuliana, 37, underwent surgery for a double lumpectomy to remove cancerous tissue from the breasts. The surgery lasted about two hours and was without complications. “She’s a trooper. She pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out,” Bill explained. “She’s doing well at home and recovering.”

“I wish I could take some of the pain away,” he sympathized. “Watching her being wheeled into that operating room was heartbreaking for me. I’m just doing everything I can to support her and make sure that she’s comfortable.” Awww… what a wonderful husband.

Bill also emphasizes that the couple will continue their quest to become parents despite the diagnosis. Giuliana said earlier this week after discovering the cancer while prepping for a third round of IVF: “That baby will have saved my life. There’s some master plan. Now I know that [God] was looking out for me.”

And following Giuliana’s announcement earlier this week, a number of reality stars tweeted their support. Below are some of those tweets -

Bethenny Frankel“What you’re going through is all that matters @GiulianaRancic @billrancic It puts everything in perspective. Love&prayers are with you”

PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS FOR THE RANCICS – LEAVE YOURS BELOW!

Some sad news to report today as E! host Giuliana Rancic revealed this morning that she has breast cancer.

The 37-year-old star of Style network’s Giuliana & Bill shared the shocking news during an appearance on The Today Show.

“I have early stage breast cancer,” revealed Giuliana, adding that she actually discovered the tumor back in August, as she was prepping for her third attempt to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization.

“Through my attempt to get pregnant through IVF, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer,” she said. “It’s been a shock.”

A shock indeed as Giuliana wasn’t even planning to have her first mammogram until she was 40. Her IVF doctor was the one who insisted she have one now. Upon hearing the cancer results days later, Giuliana revealed she was “sobbing” and felt like “the world just crashed around me.”

Giuliana however stated the prognosis is good as the cancer was discovered early. She is set to undergo surgery this week, followed by six and a half weeks of radiation therapy.

Giuliana also shared her positive outlook on life as she revealed she is NOT giving her up dreams of having a baby. Her first IVF attempt ended in a miscarriage and the second one didn’t work.

“I still want this baby because this baby would have saved my life,” said Giuliana. “I truly feel God was looking out after me … If I had gotten pregnant later down the line, I could have been a lot sicker.”

Giuliana adds that her husband Bill Rancic, 40, has been her rock through this ordeal. “Bill is unbelievable,” she gushed. “He lets me cry when I want to cry, he doesn’t say, ‘Hey, look at that person who’s worse off than you are.’ He just lets me feel what I’m feeling.” Best wishes to Giuliana for a full recovery.

TELL US – THOUGHTS?

E! reporter and reality star Giuliana Rancic is standing her ground when it comes to the brewing weight controversy involving her fellow skinny girl LeAnn Rimes!

The drama began when Giuliana, star of Style network’s Giuliana and Bill, stated in an interview that she would like to feed a too skinny LeAnn at her new restaurant. LeAnn didn’t take too kindly to the comments from Giuliana, who has also been criticized for being too skinny, as she fired off a number of tweets earlier this week.

“She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life,” said Giuliana, 36. “She seems a little thin right now, and I think she looks great when she’s a bit curvier.” LeAnn, 29, then responded via twitter: “@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are. You can see just HOW much I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy “shrinking” once and for all…..oh, & then we should workout together!”

While talking to E! yesterday, Giuliana reveals she sees nothing wrong with her original comments. “I don’t see anything wrong with pointing out that someone looks good curvier. There’s nothing hotter than a girl with some curves. I wish I was a curvy bombshell!…trust me!” says Giuliana.

Giuliana adds that she meant no harm with her comments. “I didn’t mean it as an insult but apparently some people took it the wrong way. If someone told me they prefer me with some more weight on me…I’d give them a big, fat kiss!” says Giuliana. “I think this is just a big misunderstanding and hold no hard feelings towards LeAnn. Hope to see her on a red carpet soon!”

We are closely monitoring LeAnn’s twitter page and will bring you an update the minute she responds! You know she will.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?

In today’s skinny girl vs thin girl news, Giuliana Rancic and singer/husband stealer LeAnn Rimes battle over their weight!

It all started when pot Giuliana, star of Style network’s Giuliana & Bill, decided to criticize LeAnn for being too skinny. Love you Giuliana but have you looked in a mirror lately girl???

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Giuliana spoke out about her plans to open a new restaurant with husband Bill Rancic in Chicago, before stating LeAnn was a celebrity she’d like to feed at their new eatery.

“She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life,” Giuliana said about LeAnn. “She seems a little thin right now and I think she looks great when she’s a bit curvier.”

LeAnn, who doesn’t seem to have much of a career lately, wasted no time in responding to Giuliana’s comments! LeAnn tweeted, “@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are. You can see just HOW much I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy “shrinking” once and for all.” She later added, “Then we should workout together! Good luck with your restaurant!!!!”

When asked by one of her followers to clarify her comments, LeAnn wrote: “I just don’t appreciate her comments, so I really would love for her to hang with me, see who I am. I am a person you know.”

Yikes! Where’s the ultimate Skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel to referee when you need her? As of the moment, Giuliana has yet to respond to the latest comments by her fellow skinny girl LeAnn.

And just in case you’re wondering, LeAnn is married to Eddie Cibrian who used to be married to RHOBH star Brandi Glanville before cheating on her with LeAnn.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS DRAMA? DOES GIULIANA HAVE ROOM TO CRITICIZE? ARE BOTH LADIES TOO SKINNY?

After years of struggling to have a baby, Giuliana Rancic and hubby Bill Rancic are now revealing they are looking into other options.

“We’re looking at all of our options when it comes to children, whether it’s surrogacy or adoption,” Bill, 40, said to UsWeekly. “We’re going to keep trying ourselves, but if it doesn’t work out, there are so many other great alternatives. We’re open to everything,” added Giuliana, 35.

In fact during an appearance on the Chelsea Lately show last week, Giuliana and Bill revealed they were looking into adopting an “underprivileged kid” from Giuliana’s hometown of Naples, Italy.

The couple has suffered heartbreak in their struggle to become parents as Giuliana opened up last year about her miscarriage. The Giuliana & Bill stars, who wed in September 2007, however promise the new season of their reality show will focus less on their quest to start a family.

“We went through a really tough year trying to have a baby. We decided, you know what? We need some time off,” explained Giuliana — who once received 63 IVF shots a month. “Bill decided to have the year of fun and just focus on the positive.”

The 4th season of Giuliana & Bill airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. (EST) on the Style Network!

Despite experiencing a miscarriage earlier this year Bill and Giuliana Rancic still continue to remain optimistic about having a baby.

Bill, 39, also adds that “we have a lot of love to give,” while singing his wife’s praises for going through a hard process with strength.
