Giuliana Rancic Comments On Feud With LeAnn Rimes [AUDIO]
There have been rumors circulating back and forth about a potential “Battle of the Bones” between the “E! News” hostess and the newly wedded singer. Giuliana sets the record straight. She says, “What was happening was, I wasn’t actually on Fashion Police. They’ve got the story wrong. For Huffington Post, I was doing an interview over there, we were talking about the new restaurant, and he said, ‘What celebrity would you like to feed who you think is really skinny right now?'”
“So the first person that came to mind, because of that bikini shot of her a couple of weeks ago had just come out, I said, ‘LeAnn Rimes.’ I said, ‘I know she’s lost a lot of weight, but I like her when she’s curvier because I interviewed LeAnn Rimes when she was on a Shape Magazine cover just come out and I thought she looked amazing.’ So that’s all I said. It was pretty harmless. I wasn’t saying she’s like ugly-skinny or you know, needs to gain weight. It was just like I like her curvier.”
Well, the question is, did she fire back at the Style Network starlet. Giuliana recalls, “She did fire back. And she said, she tweeted to me, she’s like, ‘we should go out to dinner sometime so you can see how much I eat.’ But you know how Twitter is. You can’t tell the tone. We didn’t know if it was like nasty or serious.”
Don’t worry, everything got straightened out when the two talked outside of Twitter. Mrs. Rancic says, “If someone said to me, I like you curvier, I wouldn’t take that as an insult. Okay great. So you like me curvier. You like me thinner. I don’t really care, but here in the end, I will tell you guys, that she and I have spoken, we’ve texted off line, she’s really cool.”
Maybe the two will grab a bite to eat at Giuliana, Bill and Mamma Depandi’s new Italian restaurant in Chicago. Bill reflects on working with his mother-in-law.
“After seeing Mama DePandi come to E! and serve up her famous pasta, people line up. They line up for blocks to eat her pasta. I thought, this could be a business opportunity. So we decide we’re going to open up a restaurant. The funny thing is, her mom, doesn’t know a word of English until we start discussing money and percentages in the restaurant.”
