Giuliana Rancic Signs Three-Year Deal with E!
Giuliana Rancic is sticking with E! for at least three more years.
The E! News and Fashion Police co-host has signed a new three-year deal with E!'s parent company NBCUniversal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The new contract also includes her participation in E!'s Live From the Red Carpet events, along with any first-look rights to new projects Rancic creates.

"Our viewers feel a special connection to Giuliana since in many ways she's grown up on our air over the past decade," E! President Suzanne Kolb said in a statement. "Giuliana's on-air charm, charismatic personality and outstanding professionalism have made her one of TV's most recognized hosts, and her work has helped propel E! News to new heights."
The news comes almost a month after Rancic and her husband Bill announced they are expecting their first child via gestational surrogate. The Rancics, who've been married since 2007, have tried for years to have baby. Their struggles to conceive, including multiple in vitro treatments and a miscarriage, have been documented on their reality series Giuliana & Bill. During Giuliana's third round of in vitro last summer, she learned that she had early stages of breast cancer. She later underwent a double mastectomy and is now cancer-free.
