Giuliana Rancic: 'My Breasts Have Never Defined Me'

After being diagnosed with breast cancer three months ago, Giuliana Rancic tells People of her upcoming double mastectomy, "I think scars tell such an incredible story. I'll always look at them and think, 'Wow, I made it through that.'"


The 37-year-old E! News anchor, who married "The Apprentice" winner Bill Rancic four years ago, revealed she still has her vulnerable moments. "Usually, it's two in the morning, and I'll turn around from Bill so I don't wake him up, and I just cry," the 37-year-old said. "I sob and think, 'How did this happen?'"

She continued, "My breasts have never defined me, and they never will."

Rancic is scheduled for surgery on December 13.
