Travels from Illinois, USA
Giuliana Rancic's speaking fee starts in range: $30,000 to $50,000
Best known for her fearless interviews with Hollywood’s biggest stars, television personality Giuliana Rancic has empowered millions with her relentless spirit as well as her willingness to openly discuss her personal and professional struggles and the tools she’s used to get through them. A successful entrepreneur, breast cancer survivor, and devoted mother and wife, Rancic overcame setback after setback to build the career and life she wanted.
While Rancic came to fame as the articulate and fashion savvy host of E! News, it may surprise many that she did not learn to speak English until she was seven-years-old. Rancic immigrated with her family from Italy to the US as a child and had zero language support in her public school. She learned English from watching an anchorwoman on her local news – a pastime that also served as an early inspiration to become a journalist herself.
After completing her MA in journalism from the University of Maryland, Rancic moved out to Hollywood with zero connections. She waited tables and worked in retail for years before finally getting her big break as an anchor for E!. Rancic’s off script, fearless, and fun interviews helped get E! News out of its deepest ratings slump and onto the screens of millions of Americans each night. She further secured her status as a pop culture icon as the co-host of the E! hit, Fashion Police.
Rancic is the best-selling author of Going Off Script, a witty and raw memoir in which she shares her struggles building her career, battling breast cancer, and overcoming infertility. She is the founder of the charity, Fab-u-wish, a program that grants fashion, beauty and celebrity-themed wishes to women battling breast cancer. In addition to being heavily involved in several other cancer charities, she is the entrepreneurial force behind the award-winning clothing line, G by Giuliana Rancic, and the innovative wine brand, Xo, G. Her most important job though is being a loving mother to her young son, Duke, and a supportive wife, to her husband, Bill.
New York Times best-selling author and the winner of the Fan Favorite award at the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, Giuliana Rancic is an entertainment journalist, author, fashion and beauty expert and television personality with over 3.5 million devoted followers on Twitter and 7 million followers across three social media platforms. She is the anchor of E! News, co-star of E!’s hugely popular Fashion Police team, host of Beyond Candid with Giuliana and has been on the red carpet for every mega-event in the entertainment industry (Oscars, Grammy Awards, Golden Globes) interviewing the stars and getting breaking Hollywood scoop as well as fashion tips, diet and fitness advice, travel tips and all things pop culture.
Giuliana recently created her own signature brand of wine, Xo, G. It’s unique in that four single serve shatter-proof cups make up one bottle. It can be found at Walmart.
Giuliana launched her own clothing line, G by Giuliana Rancic, on HSN – the most successful clothing line debut on HSN in 2012 and won the highly coveted HSN Best Brand Launch award.
In 2006, Rancic released her highly-praised debut book, Think Like A Guy: How to Get a Guy By Thinking Like One. It is a practical and funny handbook of rules on landing the man of your dreams. She recently released her second book, I Do, Now What?, published by Random House. Giuliana co-authored the book with her husband, Bill Rancic.
In April 2015, her highly anticipated memoir, Going Off Script, also with Random House, was released and made the New York Times Best Sellers List.
In 2013, Rancic created “Fab-U-Wish,” a program to grant fashion, beauty and celebrity-themed wishes to women battling breast cancer. This program is just one aspect of her ongoing mission to help those going through hardships to find happiness and a positive outlook on life. Others include The Pink Agenda, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Operation Smile, Dress For Success, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls in Chicago and the Children’s Miracle Networks.
In 2002, Giuliana joined E! News as a correspondent and in 2005 became solo anchor and managing editor for the show, taking it from the lowest rated show on the network to number one… incredibly within one year.
Giuliana’s recent awards include “Fan Favorite” at the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, HSN’s 2013 “Brand of the Year” award for her clothing line G by Giuliana Rancic, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s “Caring Is Sexy Award,” “Sexiest Mom” from Victoria’s Secret “What Is Sexy?” Awards, “Beautiful Humanitarian” award from Professional Beauty Association, the “Ellen Stovall Award” from Lilly Oncology and NCCS and Operation Smile’s 2011 “Universal Smiles” award.
Rancic is a force both on-camera and off but her remarkable success didn’t come easily. She is a true result of “The American Dream” and an inspiration to people, both young and old. She was born in Naples, Italy, in a modest neighborhood, and moved to the United States when she was a little girl. Her love affair with television journalism began before she could even speak English – her parents couldn’t afford a tutor, so she learned the language by watching TV. She received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree in journalism from American University. While in attendance, Giuliana worked for a Capitol Hill news bureau covering a number of stories related to the Pentagon, Supreme Court, White House and State Department.
She lives in Los Angeles and Chicago with her husband, Bill and their son, Duke.
Inspirational speaker and admired TV personality, Giuliana Rancic shares how she built the career she wanted by acting fearlessly and staying true to who she is. Rancic moved out to Los Angeles a few years after getting her graduate degree in journalism to pursue a career in entertainment news. She spent years working in retail and waiting on tables until finally getting her big break: an audition for an entry-level reporter at E-Live!.
Rancic was the 39th person to audition, so when E! sent her out on a trial interview at the premiere of the 2001 teen comedy Summer Catch, she decided to take some risks, go beyond the typical cookie cutter questions, and have some fun. While her segment got the studio phones ringing off the hook, the producer was not amused and fired her on the spot for not delivering the news in a more conventional manner.
Rancic's family and friends objected to her interview style, as well, and urged her to instead imitate the other hosts, but Rancic argued back, saying "that's not who I am. I'm me. I'm bringing my own style, and if E! doesn't want me, maybe somewhere else will, but I can't be someone I'm not."
Six months later, she was called back when E! realized that out of the hundreds of girls who auditioned after her, Rancic was the only one that had proved to be capable of creating a memorable and entertaining segment. "You hear it all the time, but you do have to take risks if you want to succeed in business," she emphasizes. "I'm not going to try to do what everybody else is."
Inspirational speaker and beloved television personality, Giuliana Rancic has always been open about her life both on and off camera – and that authenticity has won her millions of devoted fan and followers. In her hilarious, emotionally moving, and never dull keynotes, Rancic shares how she built her wildly successful life as an entrepreneur, entertainment journalist, and mother on her terms.
The longtime E! News anchor discusses how her positive attitude, determination, and commitment to staying true to herself has gotten her through professional challenges, cancer, and infertility, as she dives into what she was really thinking during some of the hardest times of her life.

Going Off Script: How I Survived a Crazy Childhood, Cancer, and Clooney’s 32 On-Screen Rejections
A witty, warm, and inspiring memoir from the E News! host, Fashion Police panelist, red-carpet correspondent, author, and reality show star Giuliana Rancic.
Giuliana Rancic is best known for interviewing A-listers on the red carpet and E! News, skewering their shocking style choices on Fashion Police, and giving viewers a front row seat to her marriage and family life on her reality show, Giuliana & Bill. What fans may not know is that she learned English from Eddie Murphy, got her American citizenship so she could be a beauty queen, and used to have a bad habit of stealing cars for fun.
Giuliana bares this and so much more in her hilarious, warm, and inspiring memoir, Going Off Script. From a young age she dreamed of being a TV anchorwoman but, because of her inclination toward mischief and away from schoolwork, her path to her dream job was far from straight. After a fateful (and mortifying) encounter with the late Senator Ted Kennedy, she learned that Hollywood news was where she belonged. Thankfully for readers, this epiphany led her to a bounty of LA misadventures (featuring notables such as Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Russell Crowe) and an entertaining behind-the-scenes perspective on what our favorite celebrities are really like.
In spite of her glamorous Hollywood life, however, Giuliana could not escape some rockier times, including her battles with infertility and breast cancer. Here, for the first time, she reveals the whole truth behind her well-publicized struggles, and the highly controversial decisions she had to make. And, of course, at the heart of it all are the two loves of her life who keep her strong through everything, her husband Bill and her son, Duke.
Candid, funny, and poignant, Going Off Script is an autobiography that proves you don’t always have to follow the rules to get the life you’ve always dreamed of.
