Giuliana Rancic is opening up about being in a verbally abusive relationship when she was younger, all documented in her new book “Going Off Script: How I Survived a Crazy Childhood, Cancer, and Clooney’s 32 On-Screen Rejections.”
“Yeah, that was a tough one. I was 16, I was already lacking self esteem, like a lot of young girls, to begin with, and I got into a relationship with a boy that I thought was better than me,” the 40-year-old television personality told E! News. “Not long after we started dating, he became very, very verbally abusive to me. And then it led to, literally, making me look in the mirror and saying, ‘Look at you. Look how ugly you are. No one will ever love you…’ And the reason I ended up writing about it is because—and I’ve never revealed this—but to this day, I still hear his voice say it to me.”
“When I hear that, his voice, I have to block it out and go, no, no, no, no, no. He was the ugly one. So it’s just important to know that it’s not how you get kicked down, it’s how you recover. I look back at my weaknesses as a teenage girl, I realize that my weaknesses back then are my power today,” Giuliana added.
