After months of controversy and bad publicity for E! network, Giuliana Rancic is finally stepping down from E! News on Aug. 10 after over a decade of anchoring. According to People, the Fashion Police star released a statement today officially confirming the rumors of her departure that have been swirling ever since her controversial (some might even say ridiculous) comments on Disney Star Zendaya's hair during the show months ago.
Don't look for this to be the end of Giuliana on E!, however.
Looks like E! will be keeping Giuliana on both Fashion Police and Live from the Red Carpet, despite tension from both the public and her former co-hosts. But hey, everyone deserves a second chance, right? What's that saying? "If at first you don't succeed,..."
"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," said Rancic in a statement today. "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."
