Giuliana Rancic Net Worth History
Giuliana Rancic was born Giuliana DePandi. She lived in Italy until she was seven years old. At that point she moved to Washington, D. C.. She went on to receive a degree in Journalism from the University of Maryland’s College Park campus. She received her Master’s from American University, also in Journalism. During her time in school she completed a modeling course at Barbizon, and she also covered the White House during her time working for Capitol Hill news. She covered stories related to the Pentagon, State Department and Supreme Court in her early journalistic efforts.
By 2002, Giuliana had landed a Job with E! News as a correspondent. By 2005 she became the sole anchor and managing editor for this wildly popular show. She also released her first book in 2006: Think Like A Guy. This was a best-selling book, adding to her burgeoning wealth. Also in 2006, Ryan Seacrest joined her on the E! News program as her co-host. Eventually the late, great Joan Rivers would take notice of Giuliana and she would join Ms. Rivers on the very popular E! show called Fashion Police.
Recent additions to her growing empire include a clothing line as well as her own brand of wine. Her wine, called Xo, G, is sold in 4 single-serve, shatter-proof cups. It is primarily being sold through Walmart, but there are plans for wider distribution as not all states allow Walmart to sell alcohol. Her clothing line, G by Giuliana Rancic, debuted on HSN in 2012 and is widely-regarded as the most successful clothing line to ever premiere on this network shopping channel. Her much anticipated recent book, Going Off Script, was released in 2015, landing her on the New York Times Best Sellers List. Her projects, work in journalism, co-hosting on popular E! Network shows, authoring popular books, and now with her clothing line and wine, her marketing efforts have come together nicely, creating a nice net worth for this woman of humble beginnings.
