E! TV personality Giuliana Rancic announced today that she will be leaving E! News, but will still be a part of Fashion Police and E! Live Red Carpet – two other franchises part of the network. She had this to say about her departure:
For more than a decade, I was fortunate enough to play a role in the success of E! News and will miss my family at the show,” Rancic says. “At the same time, I am excited to not only continue as host of two major franchises on E! but also executive produce the aspirational new show Rich in Faith for Oxygen as well as take my wine and clothing lines to the next level. “This is such a thrilling time for me and I thank the gang at E! for understanding my desire to embark on this next chapter in my life.”
After the scandal that happened earlier this year with Zendaya, I honestly can’t say that I am surprised. I think her way of handling the incident didn’t sit well with most people and it was hard for her to really make a comeback from that. It wouldn’t shock me if in another year or less than a year she exits the network completely.
Her last day on E! News will be Monday, August 10th.
