In 2006, Rancic released her highly-praised debut book, Think Like A Guy: How to Get a Guy By Thinking Like One. It is a practical and funny handbook of rules on landing the man of your dreams.

Giuliana’s recent awards include the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s “Caring Is Sexy Award,” “Sexiest Mom” from Victoria’s Secret "What Is Sexy?" Awards, “Beautiful Humanitarian” award from Professional Beauty Association and Operation Smile’s 2011 “Universal Smiles” award.
Rancic is a force both on-camera and off but her remarkable success didn’t come easily. She is a true result of “The American Dream” and an inspiration to people, both young and old. She was born in Naples, Italy, in a modest neighborhood, and moved to the United States when she was a little girl. Her love affair with television journalism began before she could even speak English – her parents couldn’t afford a tutor, so she learned the language by watching TV.
Rancic received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree in journalism from American University. While in attendance, Giuliana worked for a Capitol Hill news bureau covering a number of stories related to the Pentagon, Supreme Court, White House and State Department. Upon graduation, she relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her true passion—entertainment—where she currently resides with her husband, speaker Bill Rancic.
