Giuliana Rancic is not one to backpedal.

The super-skinny entertainment journalist, who has come under fire herself for her teeny tiny frame, held firm in her opinion that singer LeAnn Rimes would look better if there was more of her to look at, despite a testy stream of tweets from the singer.

"I don't see anything wrong with pointing out that someone looks good curvier," the Chicago-based stunner told her home network of E! on Wednesday. "There's nothing hotter than a girl with some curves. I wish I was a curvy bombshell! ... trust me!"

Rancic, 35, raised eyebrows with her recent comments about Rimes' slight physique, telling The Huffington Post she thinks the bikini-loving beauty could add a few more calories to her daily diet.

"She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life," Rancic said. "She seems a little thin right now and I think she looks great when she's a bit curvier."

Rimes shot back with a nasty tweet, writing: "@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are. You can see just HOW much I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy ‘shrinking’ once and for all.”

After challenging Rancic to join her for a workout, Rimes admitted to a follower she didn't "appreciate Rancic’s comments."

No harm intended, said Rancic, who reiterated Wednesday that she "didn't mean it as an insult but apparently some people took it the wrong way.”

She continued: "If someone told me they prefer me with some more weight on me ... I'd give them a big, fat kiss! I think this is just a big misunderstanding and hold no hard feelings towards LeAnn.

"Hope to see her on a red carpet soon!"

Giuliana & Bill airs on The Style Network Mondays at 8/7c.
