Coffee Talk: Giuliana Rancic is The Shit


Courtesy of Bill Rancic via People.com
At night when I'm falling asleep, it's common that I'll come up with an idea that seems amazing at the time. So I'll grab my phone and email it to myself so I don't forget. Then the next morning when I'm looking at my emails I see one-sentence emails from myself that say "Giuliana Rancic is The Shit."

Besides being a successful, bilingual, sweetheart (not that I know first-hand, but she seems like it), hard-working woman, she really wants to be a mom. Instead of keeping her battle with her pregnancy issues private, she has chosen to live it out on her reality show, Giuliana & Bill. Which makes for great TV, and I'm sure it pays well, but it also shows "us regular people" that we are all just people. We all have issues. Two rounds of IVF, a miscarriage, and still no baby. Money can't buy a healthy pregnancy people. Any of us that want to be a mother, know how awful it must be to go through all of that. So does that make her "The Shit," well no. A lot of women go through that. But now the poor girl has breast cancer. She probably just feels like, WTF did I do? Why is this happening!?! And I'm sure she cries and screams at home, but publicly she's handled all of this with grace. She always seems her positive, happy, chipper self. The girl is all over twitter, and is so sweet and non-whiny about all this crap and she continues to work through all of it. And that is why I think she's The Shit.

I say all of this not knowing her personally, so this is just my impression. She just seems very genuine to me, like she'd be the same if you met her in person as she is on TV. I know a lot of women go through a ton of crap a lot worse than her, but it just reminds me to be mindful of what others are going through. You might have no idea that people have stuff like this going on in their lives because many wouldn't talk about it publicly. We always tend to think that famous, successful people have it all. And yes, money and connections I'm sure makes life a LOT easier in many ways, but her and Bill work hard for what they make, and I think that's great and something to look up to. But money, connections, and having your own TV show doesn't stop cancer or pregnancy issues.

So Giuliana, I think you are The Shit. You are due for some good karma.

*Update: So I just saw (via The Today Show) that she is getting a double mastectomy. Ugh. I know it's the best choice medically, but I hate that she has to do it.

I couldn't agree with you more - I am so amazed by what a strong woman she is - and I really hope she gets the chance to be a mom! :)

I totally agree. She is so sweet and so strong. She is so lucky to have a supportive and loving mate. While her circumstances are certainly unfortunate, I am positive that they are only making her stronger. I am hoping that she becomes a mom one day. She definitely deserves it!

I totally agree with you!! She is the shit and I mean that in the best way possible. I love their show and just keep hoping she will get a break!! And a baby!!

Alex {Things That Sparkle} said...

I couldn't agree more. She is amazing. Absolutely love her. Did you hear she making a big announcement tomorrow on the Today show? I am so nervous...

I love the show, love them as a couple. I had to stop watching because when I heard about her miscarriage I just couldn't go through it again (I've had 3). It is truly so painful and you definitely think a lot about why it isn't happening for you, yet seemingly so easily for everyone else. All I can say is, it WILL happen for them, I just know it. And I so admire them for bringing these issues out in the open, because there is nothing worse than feeling completely alone in it all!

Melanie Joy said...

Agree with you 100%, and I also root for her since she was raised in the DC area too.

Urban Nester said...

I LOVE Guiliana. Such an inspiration. I can't think of a more positive person, or one that deserves to be a mother more.

I'm so happy to see this post! I met Giuliana and Bill in March at the FabFitFun launch party. She was the most incredible, kind, genuine person I have ever met. She took 10 minutes of her time-which to me was a lot-to talk to me and was so sweet! I have followed G for for years and love her! Thank you for writing this! She and Bill are amazing!!

What an inspirational and strong woman she is! I was definitely welling up watching her on the Today Show this morning talking about her battle and decision to have a double mastectomy. You have to be an incredibly special person to be able to share such an intimate journey.

Gameday Stylist said...

Agreed! She is awesome - I wish her the best :)

She seriously IS "The Shit." Did you watch her interview on the Today Show? She really is someone admirable!

I absolutely love her! I love watching her show for the same reason you do: that she shares her battles. I also love that she and Bill love making marriage look fun, which is so rare.

When they did a talk in San Diego a few months ago, my mother and I just had to go so we could meet them. They were SO incredibly nice as they chatted with us and posed for photos. Definitely love them.

I just suffered my 2nd miscarriage this week and literally thought "WTF did I do"?! Today I saw her article in People Magazine and it gave me so much strength. Bad things happen to wonderful people. It sucks but it's life. I think getting thru those awful moments with grace and poise is what defines us. I couldn't ask for a better role model than Giuliana!! She is indeed The Shit!!

Megan (MIMI+MEG) said...

Meredith, I'm so sorry to hear that!

Greetings from Texas! said...

Indeed, she totally is the shit. I was also inspired by her as I discussed here.

I totally agree with you on this. Giuliana is awesome!! Bill seems like such a great guy too. They're great together.
I met Giuliana several years ago, at a movie premiere, and afterward, as I was leaving, she was standing outside waiting for her ride. I asked her if we could take a picture together and we did. Then we just chatted for a few minutes, there were no airs of "I'm famous"- she was just a REAL, down to earth person.
I hope that after all of this, they are able to have the child they want. No doubt that child (or childrren!) will be have wonderful, loving parents!!
Thanks for posting this- Giuliana and Bill are the shit!!
