There’s no such thing as too many photo posts, in my ever so humble opinion! I love checking out what the stars are wearing, where they’re going, etc. Here we have another gallery from VH1’s 2012 Do Something Awards, held last night at Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.
Some positive, non-violent reality news to report on today which is always nice! After undergoing a double mastectomy over three weeks ago, Giuliana Rancic is reporting that she’s “doing better than I anticipated in recovery.” In fact, the star of Giuliana and Bill is claiming that her battle with breast cancer has actually improved her quality of life. That’s some attitude — we should all take note!
Not surprisingly, she’s already back to work and back to her life… just a better life, she says. Speaking to PEOPLE.com while at a Television Critics Association press tour luncheon this past weekend, Giuilana revealed, “I never thought my marriage could be stronger, or I could be closer to [my husband Apprentice winner] Bill [Rancic].” The E! host reveals that the frightening ordeal has been a positive life changer “in so many ways.”
Discussing Bill and her religious views, Giuliana shares, “We go to church every Sunday. And we did before, but it never meant as much as it does now.” She continues, “We prayed on our own, but now we prayed together and you’ll never know how much that means until you do it. Bill and I have changed our lives in that one way.”
Giuliana reveals that she hasn’t had a moment’s pause about her recent surgery which removed both of her breasts — nor should she. It greatly improved her future health. She states, “The surgery brought my risks down 95 to 100 percent. If I had a lumpectomy, I would have early estrogen menopause for at least two years, and I want to have children.”
Using the humor she’s known for both on her show and on the red carpet, Giuliana dishes, “I didn’t give two sh––s about my breasts. I didn’t care that at the Golden Globes, I wouldn’t be able to show cleavage.” Her chest size doesn’t define her career.
She recalls, “A lot of people were shocked. They said, ‘Are you sure you want to do this? Think about the life you lead and the fabulous dresses and that’s part of your job. It could put your job in jeopardy.’ And I thought, if I ever have a job that is defined by my breasts and some gorgeous gown then I’m in the wrong business.”
And honestly, who needs cleavage when they have a loving, supportive husband by their side every step of the way through the good, the bad and the ugly. “It breaks my heart that a lot of women don’t have a supportive husband,” Giuliana tells the magazine. She gushes, “Bill’s a saint, and the hottest male nurse ever. He’s very protective and it’s almost as hard for him as it was for me.”
I am so happy to see that Giuliana made the health decision that she felt was best for her, regardless of stigmas, criticism or potential insecurities. I think Bill and her are a wonderful public example for the millions of women and men who face the devastation of breast cancer on a daily basis. Do I think she’s a hero? Yes. But I also think all the other women who have been in her shoes without the recognition are as well. I applaud her for using the platform she’s been blessed with to spread awareness about an all too common epidemic.

CAN YOU BELIEVE GIULIANA’S ALREADY BACK AT WORK AFTER HER SURGERY? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HER INTERVIEW?
Following her devastating miscarriage, E! News reporter Giuliana Rancic is now opening up about trying for a baby again.
In a new interview with UsWeekly, the star of Style network’s Giuliana & Bill says she and her husband Bill Rancic are optimistic about their chances.
“The good news is that IVF did work as we did get pregnant,” Giuliana, 36, told UsWeekly. “Sometimes I have to get [injections] 21 days in a row, three times a day. It’s a lot. But you’ve got to do it.”
Giuliana however praises Bill, 39, who helps administer the shots to his needle-fearing wife. “Bill could honestly be on Grey’s Anatomy,” Giuliana said. “He could be McRancic.”
Giuliana also adds that she and Bill are open to other options if the IVF fails to work this time. “We’ve gotten probably 40 women who have offered to be surrogates,” said Giuliana. “And the other day I got an email saying, ‘My niece is having a baby, and she’s giving it up for adoption and we’d like to give it up to you.”
Giuliana Rancic, star of Style network’s Giuliana & Bill, is revealing for the first time that she suffered a recent miscarriage.
In the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine, the E! news reporter, who has been open about undergoing IVF treatments to try to start a family this spring, reveals that after getting pregnant on her first try with in vitro fertilization, she had a miscarriage at nine weeks.
“Both of us were in shock,” Giuliana’s husband, Bill Rancic, 39, tells PEOPLE. “Failure wasn’t an option!”
Giuliana, 36, adds that she was crushed by the news. “I said, ‘I’m not doing this again. I can’t.’ I was angry at life and at God.” The Rancics also share that footage of their happiness upon hearing the pregnancy news, and their shock upon hearing about the miscarriage will be a part of their reality show, which is set to return on Oct. 11.
“Hopefully we can help people understand that there’s nothing to be ashamed of,” says Giuliana. “It’s such a taboo subject, but it’s a very common problem.”
