Giuliana Rancic Has the Love of Husband Bill in Sickness and in Health

giuliana rancic bill rancicThere's no question that what Giuliana Rancic is going through right now has got to be one of the most incredibly challenging experiences any woman ever has to deal with. But she does have one thing going for her that many women facing similar challenges do not, and that's the undying support of a man who loves her.

This morning I caught a clip of Giuliana and her husband Bill Rancic on the Today show, a little preview shot before their live interview.

The look on poor, brave Giuliana's face was heartbreaking, but it was Bill who really got me choked up: Nervous as hell, but determined to be strong for his wife, one hand placed protectively on her knee.

Giuliana may very well end up thanking Bill for saving her life. Not just because he's a solid, supportive presence, but because it was his words that helped convince her to go ahead with the double mastectomy:


Bill said to me, "I just need you around for the next 50 years, kid. I don’t care what you look like, I don’t care about the physical portion of this, I just need you around for the next 50 years, so let’s get you healthy." And that helped me come to a decision.

Exactly the words a woman needs and wants to hear when faced with a decision like this one. Exactly. That's a man who truly loves and honors his wife. I don't care about what you look like ... I just need you around for the next 50 years.

Here's hoping Giuliana and Bill make it to their 50th wedding anniversary happy and healthy.

Was there a time when your husband helped you to pull through a huge crisis?
