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.
There are very few worlds in which one can bad-mouth his or her boss with zero repercussions, and that includes the entertainment business. And although Kelly Osbourne might have risked her own reputation by remaining silent, she’d also have kept her ‘Fashion Police’ job. In case you missed it, Guiliana Rancic received serious heat for a racially insensitive remark about Zendaya’s hair, and Osbourne outwardly expressed her outrage. Her rant solidified some already shaky job security, and she’s since been ousted. As for mommy dearest, Sharon Osbourne predictably came to her daughter’s defense, which is especially ironic since Sharon herself has been fired for bad-mouthing her own bosses. Perhaps everyone, including Kelly Osbourne, can learn a thing or two from the young Zendaya Coleman, who patiently explained her position in the most eloquent fashion, and stayed above the fray. She did not threaten, she did not name call, and she explained her point sans profanity. It appears youth is not wasted on the young after all.
