Giuliana Rancic Still Optimistic Despite Cancer


When ‘E! News’ co-host Giuliana Rancic was first diagnosed with breast cancer in October last year, she “wanted to yell from a rooftop and cry and scream.” But, thanks to her supportive husband, restaurateur Bill Rancic, she was able to calm down to devise a plan of attack instead.

Giuliana recalls what Bill told her, “He goes, ‘We’ve got to make a list and figure out the pros and cons of a lumpectomy with radiation and anti-estrogen therapy, and the pros and cons of a mastectomy. Let’s figure this out.'”

On the other hand, Bill admits that it was not easy seeing his wife go through cancer treatment, saying, “As a husband and as a man, you wish you could trade places with your wife, but you can’t, and it sucks. I of course had my moments. But you know, you’ve got to be strong; I would never break down in front of her. I wasn’t curled up in a fetal position in the shower, but there were moments when it was like, ‘It’s not fair. Why does she have to go through this?’ There was anger.”

Giuliana had a double mastectomy on December 13, followed by reconstructive surgery.

When her co-workers first learned about her diagnosis, Giuliana had to remind them that it wasn’t a death sentence.

“It was like, ‘Hey, guys, cut the bullsh-t. I’m the exact same person I was before. I’m still shallow, I still love clothes, I still want to talk fashion ad I still want to gossip, so lay it on me. They were like, ‘Thank God.'”
