Giuliana Rancic Goodbye: Bill Rancic’s Wife Ends Her Run As ‘E! News’ Host
After 14 years on E! News, Giuliana Rancic bid goodbye as tears rolled down her eyes. It was not all tears because the cast and crew of the show shared bloopers and Rancic was even surprised by an appearance from her husband, Bill Rancic, who had some touching words to share.
Goodbye, Giuliana Rancic, your fans will surely miss you on E! News. However, the truth of the matter is, it was not a real goodbye a la John Stewart, because the mother of one will continue showing off her unique fashion sense and calling out Hollywood stars who hire bad stylists on Live from the Red Carpet and Fashion Police.
On Monday, the author of Going Off Script: How I Survived a Crazy Childhood, Cancer, and Clooney’s 32 On-Screen Rejections appeared for the last time on E! News and will be replaced by Maria Menounos.
For her last appearance on the entertainment news show, the crew and staff members had few surprises in store for Rancic, who was a host for 14 long years.
Mrs. Rancic was treated to a classic video of blooper reels, which contained ill-conceived reports on celebrities and gossip, along with failed interviews and more. The best part of the installment was an appearance by Bill Rancic, who came to show support to his wife.
A very emotional Rancic said after the show that while it is hard to bid adieu, she is looking forward to the next chapter of her life. Rancic explained:
“I knew this day would be bittersweet but I was not prepared for how incredibly special it would be.I am lucky to have worked side-by-side with some of the most talented and kindest people in the business who gave me the most loving send-off I could have ever hoped for. I cried tears of joy but today feels like my graduation day and I can’t wait to write my next chapter.”
In a lengthy post that was shared on ABC, Bill Rancic revealed a softer side of his wife, saying that on their first date they got in the rain and she suggested that they go into a store, use the towels, and put them back instead of buying them.
After that day, he told himself “Damn, she’s frugal too, a woman after my own heart!” and he fell in love. The letter went on to say:
I wouldn’t miss today’s taping for the world. I just hope I don’t embarrass you cause I’m crying tears of joy. As you know, I’m a softy, but you are my Sophia Loren — classy, elegant, strong, living your life the right way. Today is just a celebration, the culmination of so much hard work, and excitement for what’s to come next!
The proud husband had the following to say about Mrs. Rancic, who has a master’s degree in journalism from American University:
I’ll close by saying my wife is the definition of the American Dream. A dream that’s become even more important in recent years. She came to this country at a young age and could barely speak English. All the kids in her class laughed when she stood up at 8 years old and said she wanted to be an award-winning anchor someday. No one is laughing now.
It is believed that Rancic got fired because of the controversial comments that she made in February about Zendaya‘s hair or faux locs smelling of patchouli oil or marijuana on Fashion Police.
