Giuliana Rancic is finally speaking out on the rumors surrounding her weight.
Rancic, who is fed up with the rampant speculation as to whether she’s suffering from a cancer relapse or eating disorder, is getting candid about the real reason for her thin frame.
According to the 40-year-old, a cancer suppressing medication is to blame for her inability to maintain a healthy weight.
For those who don’t remember, the momma of one bravely fought and survived a 2011 breast cancer diagnosis.
The red carpet expert revealed:
“Some people were saying, ‘The cancer is probably back,’ 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.’ It’s really hurtful. 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.”
It must be quite draining to deal with stressful weight rumors AND the fear of a cancer relapse. We’re just glad the medication is working!
“I eat more than any of my friends. I eat a very robust, healthy, balanced diet and dessert almost every night. I’m not hiding from anything. 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 never want my weight to distract people from what I do. But it is becoming a distraction, whenever I wear something sleeveless, show my arms, my back.”
Sheesh. We never knew the extent of Giuliana’s internal struggle — it’s really enlightening to hear her side of the story.
Thankfully the television personality has a good attitude about the situation, saying:
“I refuse to be broken by what people say. I have so many beautiful things in my life.”
Hopefully this silences some rumors.
