Giuliana Rancic Admits "I Know I'm Too Thin"
Giuliana Rancic is speaking out about her weight, after saying comments about it have "gotten out of hand."
"Some people were saying, 'The cancer is probably back,' and they were accusing me of every eating disorder," the E! News host, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and underwent a double mastectomy that same year told People. "I thought to myself, 'God, if someone really thought I had an eating disorder, what a horrible way to approach it.'"
While Giuliana has remained cancer free and says she doesn't have an eating disorder, her oncologist told her the cancer-suppressing medication she has been taking since 2012 could effect her metabolism and cause weight loss.
As far as the attention her weight has received, Giuliana said, "I started noticing that I was eating a lot, but not gaining weight at all. It's really hurtful...I'm sorry that some people think I'm disgustingly skinny, as they put it, but there's nothing I can do. I'm lucky that I even have the type of cancer that reacts to the medicine."
Describing her diet as "balanced and robust," Giuliana said her weight loss has been difficult for her as well. "I look in the mirror and it's hard for me," she continued. "I am really thin. I want to look fit and beautiful and sexy, and I can't."
She added: "I never want my weight to distract people from what I do, but it is becoming a distraction, [whenever] I wear something sleeveless, show my arms, my back." In spite of the backlash and her own feelings about it, Giuliana is trying to keep her head up.
"I refuse to be broken [by what people say]," she said. "I have so many beautiful things in my life."
