Giuliana Rancic has had a rough time over the years between her fertility struggles and her battle with cancer. But one challenge she’s addressing now is about her weight. For years, people have taken note of her very, very thin frame, and the comments have ranged from concerned to relentlessly cruel. But The Gossip Table has the truth: it’s because of the medicine keeping her alive. Her cancer-suppressing medication is messing with her metabolism and keeping her so skinny. Here’s an excerpt from her interview with People:
“It’s really hurtful,” says Rancic of the attention, adding that she had hoped criticism about her appearance would quiet down on its own. “I’m sorry that some people think I’m disgustingly skinny, as they put it, but there’s nothing I can do. I’m lucky that I even have the type of cancer that reacts to the medicine.”
Rancic was always slim, but she’s certainly grown more so since her cancer diagnosis. Here she is 10 years ago, when she was Giuliana DePandi.
Ultimately, no matter what anyone looks like or why, it’s none of our business.
In her interview with People, she also talks about more sad news: her last embryo miscarried via surrogate. Luckily, she has a healthy son, but she was definitely hurt by this “toughest blow.”
