1. Who knew that Eva Longoria was involved in this?
2. Who knew what this show was even about?
3. Who watched this?
Reality TV World reports that Longoria’s show was cancelled because of poor ratings. “Ready for Love” did horribly when it premiered on April 10. The dating show average only 3.85 million viewers during its two-hour debut. Unfortunately, the second episode performed even worse, averaging only 3.37 million viewers.
“Ready for Love” was hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic and was widely expected to do better than it did because it had “The Voice” as a lead-in.
The show was about finding a date for three bachelors by utilizing the skills of three professional matchmakers to locate the perfect dates for each bachelor.
Prior to the show airing on TV, Longoria remarked to NBC that the show was an attempt to replicate some of the techniques that people use today to find a date, such as joining Internet dating sites. She noted at the time that she hoped people would be inspired by the show to go out in search of their perfect match.
So now I ask you, Evil Beeters, did any of you out there watch this? Again, no jugement from me, I watch Splash. Voluntarily.

“I don’t give two sh—s about my breasts. I didn’t care that, at the Golden Globes, I wouldn’t be able to show cleavage. … They said, ‘Are you sure you want to do this? Think about the life you lead and the fabulous dresses and that’s part of your job. It could put your job in jeopardy.’ And I thought, if I ever have a job that is defined by my breasts and some gorgeous gown then I’m in the wrong business.”
First of all, Giuliana rocks. Let’s get that part out of the way.
Second of all, I was under the misguided impression that Giuliana was going to have elective cosmetic surgery right away. Apparently not? Way bold.
On becoming one tough little bird, thanks to the strength of friends and fans:
“I think because breast cancer touches so many people, when someone hears you have it, they just shower you with love. The one word I always saw in all the messages was strong. You’re so strong, stay strong, be strong—when you hear something enough, you start believing it.”
Wow. Keep doing as you do, Mrs. Rancic.

(I tried to give this post an optimistic title.)
Rancic underwent a double lumpectomy in October, but the surgery wasn’t completely successful. Ugh, I can’t imagine the grief of making that kind of decision. (On the bright side, she apparently opted for reconstructive surgery, so maybe we’ll see her with an amped-up chest soon. Yay!)
Rancic has remained all smiles and was, according to husband Bill, “cracking jokes” soon after the surgery.
“G is doing really well,” Bill exclusively tells E! News. “Her surgery lasted about four hours and the doctors were very pleased with the result.”
Man. Giuliana is one tough cookie.

“For me, it was important to get the cancer out. That’s what I wanted to do, just get it out. At the end, to be honest, all it came down to was just choosing to live, and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life,” Rancic said.
She said her husband’s support was crucial in reaching the decision. “Bill said to me, ‘I just need you around for the next 50 years, kid,’ ” she said. “He said, ‘I don’t care what you look like, I don’t care about the physical portion of this. I just need you around for the next 50 years. So, let’s just get you healthy.’ And that certainly helped me come to a decision. I couldn’t be more at peace with the decision. But it’s hard, and I still break down some nights … But I’m okay.”
Ugh, how awful. I mean, it’s great that this will, hopefully, take care of the issue altogether, but what an emotional slammer this must be. I mean, it’s not even that there’s going to be parts physically missing from her body – that’s probably disturbing enough – but the fact that this is the best option must really mean that the situation is worse than anyone had originally assessed. Good luck, girl, and I wish you the best.

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.

“I work in a really superficial industry. I mean, I am getting Google Alerts saying, ‘You look good with the weight gain.’ They don’t realize they’re being mean by saying you look good fatter. It’s enough to drive any girl a little crazy. But it’s okay. What can I say? There’s nothing I can do about it.”
- Giuliana Rancic explained yesterday on the Oscar red carpet why it’s difficult to be five pounds less skinny than she used to be.
