OK. I’d just read that E! News host Giuliana Rancic is attempting in-vitro fertilization—for the third time, you guys!—and while I’m totally optimistic for Rancic and her husband, yawn. I mean, I love Joan Rivers on Fashion Police as much as the next girl does, but IVF treatment is not exactly what I call news. Zzz.
This is news, though: Giuliana Rancic has breast cancer. What’s more, those IVF treatments I’d just been yawning at probably saved Rancic’s life—the cancer was detected by Rancic’s fertility doctor, entirely the result of a precautionary mammogram.
Unfortunately, the Rancics have had to delay their attempts at starting a family. On the plus side, Giuliana’s doctor caught the cancer in its early stages. Rancic will briefly leave work at E! for treatment and recovery.
Rancic announced her illness (and excellent prognosis) on this morning’s episode of Today.
