Giuliana Rancic released the following statement regarding her departure; “For more than decade, I was fortunate enough to play a role in the success of E! News and will miss my family at the show. 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.”
E!’s general manager and president of Esquire Network, Adam Stotsky, said of Giuliana Rancic’s departure, “During her time here, Giuliana played an instrumental role in building E!
