Giuliana Rancic revealed on Monday that she has breast cancer, and RadarOnline.com has a new video interview of the TV correspondent and her husband Bill Rancic discussing the disease and how they’ve been dealing with it.
“This morning was tough. Actually all weekend was really tough,” Giuliana said on E! News.
“I was going back and forth; should I do this, should I not do this? It’s just so personal and I was like a nervous wreck.”
Giuliana’s former Apprentice winner hubby gave credit to his wife for her strength, noting that before her announcement on the Today show Monday, she cried every time she said the word cancer.
“I think she was a lot stronger than I thought, because up until this morning any time she even said the word cancer she would start crying,” Bill said.
“I think her goal was to send a message to all the young girls out there and I don’t think it could have gone any better... I think our story has a happy ending. And that’s the good thing. It’s very treatable, it’s 100 percent treatable when you catch it early and that’s the main message I think. You gotta get after this thing sooner rather than later.”
Giuliana, 37, said doctors discovered the tumor during a mammogram while she was undergoing another round of in-vitro fertilization in an effort to get pregnant.
“I have so many young female viewers who watch me that I just want to help them and I have an amazing platform to really help people, so that’s why it was really important for me to share this story,” Giuliana said.
“You have to take awareness and turn it into action and that action for women is just make that appointment with your doctor, make sure you’re going to your yearly appointment, figure out how to give yourself a self-exam. That sort of thing, that’s the action.”
Giuliana and Bill’s full interview airs tonight on E! and their reality show Giuliana & Bill airs on the Style Network Mondays at 8/7c.
