Giuliana Rancic bid goodbye to E! News in a very special way. Coupled with Giuliana’s farewell following her 14-year tenure there, Rancic shared her unique goodbye and a touching tribute from her husband Bill, reported Us Weekly.
Fans of Giuliana will still see Rancic on Fashion Police, but she made it clear that E! News and the staff members with whom she worked for more than a decade hold a very special place in her heart.
“What an honor to work with the most incredible gang in the business,” wrote Giuliana. “I love each and every one of you @enews and thank you for 14 years of love and laughs!!! Thank you for tonight’s beautiful send off. I [love] U! #secondfamily.”
Rancic’s goodbye included social media recognition from those who worked with her on the show such as Catt Sadler, Terrence J and Jason Kennedy.
Adding humor to all the heartfelt farewells, a blooper reel revealed some of her funniest moments, shown below.
But it was the emotion evident when Giuliana’s husband Bill joined her that showed the bond that the two have built after eight hours of married life.
“And on this note…it’s a wrap. Fourteen years of memories at one show,” posted Rancic.”Fifty more years of memories to be made with my soulmate. Let’s do this @billrancic!!!!!”
In response, Bill penned his thoughts on the challenges that he and Giuliana have faced in their marriage. Rancic struggled to get pregnant, and also is a breast cancer survivor. All of that was evidence in Bill’s goodbye tribute.
“Giuliana: Why I’m So Proud,” wrote the 44-year-old Celebrity Apprentice alum in honoring his wife.
“Even in recent months, through some of the harder times, you showed nothing but grace under pressure,” praised Bill. “You’ve dealt with worse and you’ve taken the high road, when others wouldn’t have, something you always do…That’s something that makes me love and respect you even more.”
Bill also revealed that Giuliana had been bullied when she was young, but overcame that emotional pain to succeed.
“I’ll close by saying my wife is the definition of the American Dream. A dream that’s become even more important in recent years. She came to this country at a young age and could barely speak English. All the kids in her class laughed when she stood up at 8 years old and said she wanted to be an award-winning anchor someday. No one is laughing now.”
The entertainment industry is known for its parties, and Rancic enjoyed her own goodbye celebration.
But what Bill didn’t bring up was the skinny-shaming that Rancic has endured, as the Inquisitr reported.
Giuliana expressed her anger.
“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.'”
And while fans can look for Rancic to return to Fashion Police despite her goodbye, it didn’t take long for Maria Menounos to say hello, reported the Daily Mail.
“Fun first day on @enews,” posted Maria on social media. “Thanks to @thejasonkennedy @iamcattsadler @iamterrencej &the entire team for a great day! See you all tomorrow!”
