Maria Menounos shocked the world today by announcing that she was quitting E! News to recover from brain tumor surgery.

And as the network scrambles to find a replacement for the Menounos, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that former E! host and Menounos’s nemesis, Giuliana Rancic, is already asking for her job back.

“Obviously Giuliana is begging to return as E! News host,” a production insider said.

“But as of right now, the network execs are just trying to find a suitable replacement for Maria. But she is going to be a really tough act to follow!”

And as far as co-host Jason Kennedy is concerned, the insider told Radar that he is “devastated” over losing his sidekick.

“Jason loved working alongside Maria, and the two of them were a perfect match,” the insider added.

As Radar previously reported, Rancic, 44, left the show in 2015 after she made a controversial comment on E!’s Fashion Police, saying that Zendaya Coleman’s hair “smelled like patchouli oil.”

Do you think that E! News should re-hire Giuliana Rancic? Sound off in the comments below.
