Giuliana Rancic does a good job of downplaying drama, but no level of word play will convince me that she doesn’t have an eating disorder. While I have no knowledge of whether her cancer medication actually causes weight loss, I do have the ability to recall empirical data, and that data suggests she was this thin prior to her illness. In fact, I distinctly remember her appearance on ‘The View’ discussing her fertility issues (prior to her cancer diagnosis), and Whoopi Goldberg specifically asked if she gained the weight her doctor suggested to help with fertility. Of the ten pounds she was told to gain, Rancic quietly admitted to having only gained “four pounds,” which was clearly a lie. When Whoopi reacted, Rancic said she “needed to fit into the show’s sample sizes,” at which point her husband rolled his eyes. I wish her the best, as she’s probably a good person, and I also don’t think a personal struggle is the public’s business. That being said, I seriously question her statements.

If the government won’t protect its people against racism and bigotry, then the people must protect their peers. And if that protection involves non-violent bully tactics and angry verbal tirades or simple boycotting, SO BE IT. This country’s history is muddied with evil, and if we are not careful, we can easily return to that dark place. Watch below to hear Bruce explain her point.
As a bi-racial South African man, Trevor Noah aligns with television’s admirable steps toward a more diverse landscape. And given that he only got his feet wet in December during his Daily Show debut, he’s also affirming Comedy Central’s great gamble. It’s a bit of a shock, but since their brand has always represented a fresh, anti-establishment perspective, perhaps it’s strategic to veer a little left of center. After all, aren’t there enough white hosts in this market?
Noah himself has expressed surprise by the selection, despite his excitement. But given that he’s only made three appearances on the show, it seems that the now infamous “Lean-the-fuck-away-from-me” debacle with Jessica Williams might have more legs than I originally thought. Williams was a fan favorite to take the reigns, and after she politely declined interest via social media, she received criticism from a Billfold writer who cried “imposter syndrome,” which is “a well-documented phenomenon in which men look at their abilities vs the requirements of a job posting and round up, whereas women do the same and round down.” Williams did not take kindly to the criticism, claiming, “Because of my choice, you have diagnosed me with something without knowing me at all. For the world to see.” While I ALSO know nothing of Williams or her decision to exit the race, I can’t help but question whether a woman with the same level of on-air experience as Noah would either take OR be considered for this gig. And though I’m happy to see change, I’d still like to see a woman in that chair.
