Bantering with Ryan Seacrest like nobody’s business and continuously open about her struggles with fertility, E! News Host Giuliana Rancic has also recently started FabFitFun, a site that gives readers everything a woman needs to feel good from the inside out. The TV personality gives Breezy Mama the scoop on her new venture, the latest on her efforts to have a baby and of course some Ryan Seacrest dish.
You and [your husband] Bill have been so open with your struggles with fertility. Where are you in the process now?
Right now, we are looking at everything and exploring our options. Before we proceed with surrogacy or adoption, which we are totally open to, we want to give having our own children naturally a valiant effort. If the day comes where the doctor tells us there is no use in trying anymore, we’re definitely open to everything else.
Are other couples who are struggling grateful for your honesty and opening up?
Absolutely. That has been one of the positive things that has come out of this whole experience. Infertility is not something people really like to talk about. I think many women feel like they are the only one who is dealing with this kind of emotional and physical struggle, and it can make you feel ashamed. It was not always easy to let the public in, but at the same time, we know that it is something that needs to be talked about. I guess my hope is that by sharing my story, I can help other women realize that there are others out there who are going through the same kind of struggles. By spreading public awareness, I think we can take away some of the negative stigma that is attached to both infertility and miscarriages.
Can you tell us something little known about your E! News co-host Ryan Seacrest?
He is just as pretty, vertically challenged and sweet in person.
Do you watch American Idol?
Yes. I’m always amazed how people have the courage to put themselves out there. There are a lot of talented singers. Bill and I sing in the car. Luckily for the world, the windows are rolled up.
Do you think he’ll propose [to Dancing with the Stars’ Julianne Hough] as is currently rumored?
I hope so. I love weddings!
Do you give him relationship or health advice?
Sure. I don’t know if he always listens, but I am def an advice giver.
Congrats on your new site, FabFitFun! What inspired you to get it started?
FabFitFun has been something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I could not be more excited about the launch. Working in Hollywood can make anyone feel a little crazy, and I just wanted to create a place that promotes a happy, healthy lifestyle. We do have great beauty and fitness tips, but FabFitFun is really just about feeling good from the inside out. It’s a great way for me to connect with people.
What can readers expect?
Our free daily emails are filled with the latest and greatest in beauty, fitness, diet and wellness. It’s a daily dose of insider beauty tips, effective workouts, Hollywood diet secrets, nutritious recipes, confidence boosting fun, honest relationship advice and head to toe well-being.
We’re always looking for advice to stay healthy and keep in shape. What are some of your favorite tips?
Sign up for our email! Seriously, sign up! Okay, in the meantime I would say that staying in shape is all about balance. If I indulge in a plate of lasagna for dinner, I will probably go for a lighter chicken salad type lunch the next day. And most likely go to the gym. I used to run long distances, but now I do sprints…I alternate two minutes of fast walking with 2 minutes of sprinting for about 30 or 40 minutes. I find this is more effective than running long distances. I also love working out with Bill – running, hiking, etc. – it makes exercise a lot more fun. Basically, I just try to live a really balanced lifestyle.
So you and Bill work out together?
Yep, he loves working out. We love to get outside and be active together – running, hiking, etc. – it makes working out a lot more fun. That was actually one of the things that attracted us to each other. We have the same philosophy when it comes to being healthy and in shape.
Is Bill conscious about eating healthy, too?
He is pretty health conscious about eating. I mean he’s a guy and he definitely eats a lot of not so healthy stuff too, but overall I think we both eat pretty well.
Can you give us a secret or two of “stress-busting, relationship strengthening, confidence-building secrets”?
Hmmm… one of my favorite confidence boosters has to be high heels. Whenever I am feeling a little frumpy, I make sure to strap on my tallest stilettos. They always fit and they really give you an instant boost.
If there is one thing you hope readers get out of FabFitFun, what would it be?
I really hope we help women feel good about themselves. Hollywood can be tough on women. Our site is all about having fun and being your best possible self.
