  • ✪ The Real Reason We Don't Hear About Giuliana Rancic Anymore


From hosting red carpets to E! News, Giuliana Rancic was one of the network's top faces. Nowadays, though, she really isn't on-camera as much as she used to be. Here are the real reasons we don't hear from Giuliana Rancic much anymore... Sparked A Scandal Rancic found herself at the center of an intense media scandal after her appearance on Fashion Police's recap of the Academy Awards on February 23, 2015, when she made a quip about model-actress Zendaya: "She has a tiny frame that this hair to me overwhelms her. Like I feel like she smells like patchouli oil… or weed." Zendaya reacted with a blistering statement on her Instagram: "To say that an 18-year-old young woman with locs must smell of patchouli oil or 'weed' is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive." Rancic apologized—first on Twitter, then again the next day on E! News." "Didn't intend to hurt anybody, but I learned that it's not my intent that matters—it's the result. And the result is that people are offended, including Zendaya, and that is not okay." Zendaya accepted her apology shortly thereafter. Behind-the-scenes Drama As a result of the scandal, Rancic's Fashion Police co-host Kelly Osbourne threatened to quit the show. She tweeted: "I do not condone racism. So as a [result] of this I'm [seriously questioning] staying on the show!" Osbourne's departure from the show was announced a few days later. A mere two weeks after Osbourne's departure, another Fashion Police host, Kathy Griffin, criticized Rancic's joke about Zendaya in an interview with The View. "Well, I didn't know she was gonna say that, because some dude wrote that for her, which I don't even feel she even needed. Honestly, I think everyone should've just improvised." A few days later, and after just seven episodes, Griffin quit Fashion Police, too. On The Defense Weeks after Griffin's departure, Rancic appeared on The Today Show to promote her memoir, Going Off Script. But she still had to answer questions about the Zendaya controversy. Rancic now seemed a bit more defensive, going so far as to allege that the joke had gotten taken out of context in the editing room. "I see why people took offense. I thought like the joke wasn't edited in a proper way, and that's just something I have to live with, but it's very important for me to get out there and tell the real story." On July 9, 2015, Rancic announced she was leaving E! News as an anchor but would continue to co-host Fashion Police. Almost immediately after the news broke, a report from Page Six alleged that Rancic was leaving because E! had hired her "archrival" Maria Menounos and the network was pushing her out. Rancic denied the claims, telling People Magazine it was "100 percent my decision to leave. Medical Issues Even without the Zendaya scandal, the past few years have been rough for Rancic. In 2011, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy shortly thereafter. And after years of infertility struggles, Rancic, who welcomed a son in 2012, found out in December 2014 that her surrogate had miscarried her next child. Since scaling back her work on E!, Rancic has kept busy. She’s launched a clothing line for HSN, a brand of wine, and an initiative to help women battling breast cancer. Rancic told one reporter, "It's just really nice to be doing what I'm very passionate about.” Thanks for watching! Subscribe to our YouTube channel to watch more videos like the one you just saw.

Early life

Rancic was born in Naples, Italy and immigrated to the United States with her family at age seven.[3] She had surgery to correct her scoliosis during her late teens. In 1996,[3] she received a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a master's degree in journalism from American University.[4] During this time, she worked for a Capitol Hill news bureau covering stories related to the U.S. government.[4] Rancic also graduated from Barbizon Modeling and Acting School.[5]


In 2005, Rancic was named anchor of E! network's E! News. On March 13, 2006, she was joined by co-anchor Ryan Seacrest.[citation needed]

Additionally, she co-hosts E!'s Fashion Police and often co-hosts red carpet events for award shows, such as the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. She is the creator and executive producer of MTV's Celebrity Rap Superstar, which premiered in 2007. She and her husband, Bill Rancic, star in the reality-television show Giuliana and Bill which aired on E!. She appeared in the movie Bring It On: Fight to the Finish in a brief scene. Rancic also has hosted the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants on NBC.[citation needed]

Rancic won the 2014 Daytime Emmy Award for Fan Favorite.[6]

In 2013, Giuliana launched her clothing line, G by Giuliana, on HSN, a hugely successful line on HSN.[7] She also launched a wine line, Xo, G.[8]

In 2013, Rancic, who has a history of breast cancer, founded Fab-U-Wish, a charity that grants wishes to women undergoing breast cancer treatment.[9]

In February 2015, Rancic faced backlash over her controversial comments about synthetic dreadlocks worn by Zendaya at the Oscars, remarking that the hair looked like it smelled of "patchouli and weed".[10]

On July 10, 2015, Rancic announced that after nearly a decade, she will be leaving her position as co-anchor on E! News, yet she will continue to be the host of Fashion Police.[11]

On September 4, 2018, the personality returned to her anchor job behind the desk of E! News a year after Catt Sadler's controversial exit.[12]

Personal life

On December 15, 2006, Giuliana and Bill Rancic announced their engagement. They were married on September 1, 2007, in a ceremony on Capri at Sancta Sophia Church in Anacapri.[13][14]

The two have publicly discussed their fertility issues on television talk shows, having tried to conceive since approximately the beginning of 2009.[15] The couple began in vitro fertilization (IVF) in March 2010,[15] and Rancic got pregnant in the spring of 2010, but she miscarried at nine weeks.[16][17] She had an IVF transfer for a second time in November 2010; however, the procedure did not result in a pregnancy. When the couple decided to try for a third round of IVF, her doctor recommended a mammogram, which is how she found out she had breast cancer. Despite her condition, the couple were still motivated to have a baby, so they continued with the egg retrieval and found a surrogate.[18]

On October 17, 2011, during an interview on Today, Rancic announced she had been diagnosed with early stage breast cancer, for which she would be treated with a double lumpectomy, followed by radiation. She underwent surgery in mid-October 2011 and returned to work at E! News about a week later.[19] On December 5, 2011, Rancic disclosed she had decided to undergo a bilateral mastectomy.[20][21]

On April 23, 2012, Giuliana and Bill announced on The Today Show that they were expecting their first child, via gestational carrier, due in late summer.[22] Their son was born in late August, 2012.[23][24]

Giuliana and Bill currently reside in Chicago, Illinois where they co-founded RPM Restaurants in the city.[25]
