New York Times best-selling author and the winner of the Fan Favorite award at the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, Giuliana Rancic is an entertainment journalist, author, fashion and beauty expert and television personality with over 3.5 million devoted followers on Twitter and 10 million followers across her social media platforms.
She is the co-star of E!’s hugely popular Fashion Police team, host of Beyond Candid with Giuliana and has been on the red carpet for every mega-event in the entertainment industry (Oscars, Grammy Awards, Golden Globes) interviewing the stars and getting breaking Hollywood scoop as well as all things pop culture.
Giuliana is also a fashion designer. She launched her clothing line, G by Giuliana on HSN – the most successful clothing line debut on HSN in 2012, and she is also a restauranteur, as the “R” in the popular restaurant group RPM Italian and RPM Steak.
In 2012, Rancic released her second book, I Do…Now What? published by Random House. Giuliana co-authored the book with her husband, Bill Rancic. Giuliana recently released her highly anticipated memoir, Going Off Script, also with Random House. The book debuted on the New York Times Best Sellers List.
In 2011, Giuliana was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and underwent a double mastectomy that same year. Following her treatment, she created “Fab-U-Wish,” a program to grant fashion, beauty and celebrity-themed wishes to women battling breast cancer. This program is just one aspect of her ongoing mission to help those going through hardships to find happiness and a positive outlook on life. Others include The Pink Agenda, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Operation Smile, Dress For Success, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls in Chicago and the Children’s Miracle Networks.
In 2002, Giuliana joined E! News as a correspondent and in 2005 became solo anchor and managing editor for the show, taking it from the lowest rated show on the network to number one… incredibly within one year. She was the anchor of E! News for almost a decade before stepping down to be with her family but still remained at E! to host their flagship shows and events.
Rancic is a force both on-camera and off but her remarkable success didn’t come easily. She is a true result of “The American Dream” and an inspiration to people, both young and old. She was born in Naples, Italy, in a modest neighborhood, and moved to the United States when she was a little girl. Her love affair with television journalism began before she could even speak English – her parents couldn’t afford a tutor, so she learned the language by watching TV. She received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree in journalism from American University. While in attendance, Giuliana worked for a Capitol Hill news bureau covering a number of stories related to the Pentagon, Supreme Court, White House, and State Department.
She lives in Los Angeles and Chicago with her husband, Bill and their five-year-old son, Duke.
