Giuliana Rancic is a cancer survivor! The experience has left the celebrity news junkie thankful to be alive and still “shallow” as ever.
Giuliana Rancic was worried her breast cancer, mastectomy and reconstructive surgery might take away her penchant for gossip fluff. Thankfully the E! News host is now completely recovered and as shallow as ever.
“I emailed the wardrobe girl at E! and asked her, ‘Can you find anything that zips up, that’s easy to put on?’ So I was wearing a surgical bra under these designer clothes. It didn’t matter. I was just happy to be in my element, to feel normal again.”
“I’ll be totally honest,” the 37-year-old, pictured here in Chicago with husband Bill Rancic earlier this month, went on. “While I was recovering, I was thinking, I’m really going to be asking people what they’re wearing? I didn’t know if I could find the joy in it again. But it didn’t take long.”
“My first day back, I walked in and these girls I’d seen every day — my assistant, my hair and makeup girls, who I’d have fun with and be crazy with — all had this sad look in their eyes. It was like, ‘Hey, guys, cut the bulls**t. I’m the exact same person I was before. I’m still shallow, I still love clothes, I still want to talk fashion, I still want to gossip, so lay it on me.’ They were like, ‘Thank God.'”
Also showing their support for Giuliana Rancic’s breast cancer battle and hellish recovery were the fine stars whose clothes she inquires about. “And the celebrities I’ve interviewed have been so sensitive,” she added. “A lot have said, ‘My mom went through this’ — or my best friend or sister did — ‘How are you holding up?’ That was so sweet.”
