Giuliana Rancic Speaks Out About Her Weight: I Want to Look Fit & Beautiful, But I Can't

Giuliana Rancic is addressing rumors that have “gotten out of hand” about her thin frame.

“Some people were saying, ‘The cancer is probably back,’” the 40-year-old television personality told People. “And they were accusing me of every eating disorder. I thought to myself, ‘God, if someone really thought I had an eating disorder, what a horrible way to approach it.’ I started noticing that I was eating a lot, but not gaining weight at all. I was concerned.”

It turns out that Giuliana‘s cancer supressing medication can alter metabolism and cause weight loss.

“It’s really hurtful,” Giuliana said of the attention. “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. I look in the mirror and it’s hard for me…I am really thin. I want to look fit and beautiful and sexy, and I can’t. I thought, ‘Wow, I’m on cancer medication. I’m doing the best that I can.’”

    If anyone remembers, guiliana used to have a blog a few years ago, like a health blog, and let me tell you, its pretty clear her relationship with food. She would talk about how to tell servers you were allergic to butter, so none would touch your veggies! She would wake up extremeley early and run for ages, and then drink tea, and then go to work, get chicken rip off all the skin. like her blog was verryy verryy intense even for a health nut. So im sorry but I don’t buy this..

  • j b

    That can’t be healthy. She could die of complications to not having enough body fat.

  • W2407

    Me neither. She doesn’t eat and she won’t admit it so she figures making people feel bad about it is the only thing to do.

  • Guest

    Yes her issues were pretty clear on her reality show. But I also agree with her that harsh comments don’t help someone a eating disorder. I hope she gets help.

  • shoes4life

    I clearly remember an episode when they were trying to conceive and the doctor told her to gain a few pounds because she was too thin. She said on that episode and others that she can’t gain weight due to she wants to be able to fit into the sample sizes for the show. She was getting smaller before being diagnosed for breast cancer.

  • Teni Eliza

    I want to believe her but I don’t. I was called anorexic, my family will comment on how thin I am, but I’m just naturally like this. Giuliana has always talked about her weight and health, as many have posted about before (her dieting and comments about staying thin). Remember when the doctors told her to gain 15 pounds to conceive and she looked mortified? It’s rude to claim you’re fine, blame your meds, or say you try to gain weight but can’t. When you’re sitting there worried if butter touches your food. I’ve seen her photos on Instagram of “dinners”. Tiny.

  • Asha

    As someone said below, I want to believe her when she says that she can’t gain weight, but I don’t. Giuliana was extremely thin before she ever got cancer.

  • Elvisfan Harb

    Man what evil comments…I know someone who had the same problem of not being able to gain weight…everyone thought she had anorexia but that was not the case..never judge another person until you have walked in their shoes…watch out for Karma.

  • AmICynical?

    We’ve all seen her with more weight on her frame. It’s not as if she has always been this way. Clearly it is either her stress or self-inflicted and intentional. Either way it’s not healthy and I wish her well.

  • Rain

    I thought most cancer meds had you gaining weight?

  • loops

    I feel bad for her, she’s clearly sick.

  • Guest

    I also went through the same thing when I went on some depression meds. I couldnt gain weight to save my life, but I do remember a thin her diluting her cereal milk on her show. I dont know…

  • Erik N

    Eat a fricking cheeseburger, some KFC, Taco Bell, a 5 dollar hot an ready, get the meat sweats, eat till you think your gonna puke an then as your sitting on the couch in pain after eating all that delicious crap an your thinking too yourself what the hell did I just do to myself? thats when you know your eating right, like an American god dammit, no medication can speed up your matablizum that fast an still loose weight with a 20 piece chicken mcnugget in your belly a day :) AMERICA!!!!!! DAMMIT!!!!

    <Grace . I just agree… Ruth `s blurb is unimaginable… on tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover after having earned $5120 this – 5 weeks past and-also, 10/k this past-month . with-out a doubt this is the most comfortable work Ive had . I actually started three months/ago and pretty much immediately started earning minimum $76… per-hour . this link

    I agree! She is lying to cover up her obvious eating disorder. If she is taking the same drug that I, and millions of other cancer survivors take, it does NOT cause weight loss. In fact, if it affects weight at all, it would be a weight gain. You are right, she was super skinny way before she got cancer.

  • GuessWho77

    Yep, and just like anyone with an eating disorder would do, she makes up an excuse for why she just can’t put on weight. And she tries reeeaalllyyyyy hard. Right. And that cancer drug she blames it on is probably Tamoxifen, which does not cause one to lose weight.

  • GuessWho77

    If she is on Tamoxifen, which is standard for breast cancer survivors, it would not cause her to lose weight. You are correct. If anything, it would cause her to gain a few pounds.

  • leilagirl

    Just last week Giuliana claimed she was healthy and eats well (eats a lot actually is what she said) and has always had a fast metabolism. Now this week she is going for the sympathy card by blaming the cancer drugs she has been taking (for 2 years or so?) OK “G” whatever you say! I say you are full of crap. I think she likes her appearance and I think she actually believes the SHE is an equal to the stars she interviews. As her TV time has increased, her weight has decreased. Quite frankly, I don’t know how she has the job she has nor do I understand how she has the endorsement deals she has. She has never been a pretty girl. She actually is quite hard on the eyes and this weight situation makes her face and head look even worse. She does seem to have some self perception issues going on…like “maybe I will look better if I get skinnier” belief. Maybe her hubby has strayed.

  • leilagirl

    yes, I believe she is (was) taking Tamoxifen (per her self admission). Some people become bloated from Tamoxifen, but weight loss…I don’t think so…But who I am to say….

  • leilagirl

    Absolutely true, but Rancic’s relationship with food has been well documented. Also, look up some photos of her when she first began her TV career. Yes, she was thin, but healthy looking. She has LOST an extreme amount of weight. That is very different from having difficulty GAINING weight as in the case of your friend.

  • sarah mccoy

    So sorry that is real sad hopefully you will be off the cancer drugs soon atleast you are here to tell the story and have to be thankful to God Good luck

  • sarah mccoy

    so true but sad
