Giuliana Rancic’s Fitness Prep to Share the Spotlight With 51 Bikini-Clad Miss USA Beauties

What a tradition!

The annual Miss USA competition happens this weekend, with a few slight changes to make the event a bit more interesting to at-home viewers. The show, which airs live on Sunday, June 8 at 8PM ET on NBC, will last three hours, whereas before it was only two hours long. The idea of adding the extra hour is to allow viewers to get to know the girls a bit more thoroughly before Miss USA is crowned. The other addition to this year’s competition is the interactive hashtag #savethequeen. Throughout the live telecast, viewers can tweet #savethequeen to save their favorite lady’s spot in the finals. Of course, hosts Giuliana Rancic and MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts will be sharing the spotlight with the contestants in their roles as commentators of the show.


I was lucky enough to chat with Rancic and Roberts about their personal fitness regimens. The producers obviously picked a duo that could hold their own onstage—even next to 51 beautiful women—but I wondered if they were treating this job a little more seriously than other affairs.  (more…)

In addition to emcee duties he’ll also be performing with his band, the Jonas Brothers. Before they take off for final auditions and prep work for the live show in Las Vegas this weekend, Giuliana and Nick took some time this afternoon to talk about the women, the pageant and answer a few questions from the press. We wanted to know if the hosts felt the contest conveyed a positive body image. The answer was a resounding, “absolutely.”


Neon Colors Brighten Fitness Attire and Workouts This Summer

One of the biggest fashion trends of the season is not hard to miss. It’s neon! Reminiscent of the glowing 80s, the bright colors are getting official fashion endorsements across the media. E! News’ Giuliana Rancic was amongst the first to announce the style trend, as the fashion expert told viewers bright colors, particularly neon, would be the color to wear this summer.

Why neon for this season? As reported by The Washington Post, Ann Narayanan, VP of Women’s Merchandising for Old Navy, offered her opinion. “This is the season of color: color on color, color back to neutrals. Neons are just one of the amazing color trends that are important right now.”

Neon is an attention grabber, it screams “Look at me!” Marissa Rosenblum, Seventeen senior editor, comments on this season’s color trend, “The highlighter colors have evolved this season into accessories, beauty products, and outwear. There are still the T-shirts, colored jeans, hoodies, and athletic apparel.”

Bright colors aren’t just for the catwalk, neon has made its way onto fitness apparel, too. Even running shoes like Brooks are brighter that ever with plenty of unconventional shades and designs. It’s hard to miss the neon when walking into a sports store this season. Brands like Nike, UnderArmor, and Jillian Michaels K-Swiss collection have fused neon into their shorts, sports bras, shirts, tanks, and even socks! (more…)

Which Star Had the Healthiest Look on the SAG Red Carpet?

Most people tuned in to the red carpet special for tonight’s Screen Actor’s Guild Awards to critique and swoon over the dresses. We tuned in to scope out the healthiest looking stars. These women stand as involuntary models for women every where. We look up to them, an try to immulate the fitness regimens and diets that they follow to make them

We were once again struck by Angelina’s bone-thin frame, which we were first startled by two weeks ago at the Golden Globes. A rumored 600-calorie diet is to blame, as is her propensity for skipping meals.

Michelle Williams’ radiant glow could be due in part to her focused yoga practice. We loved her dress as much as we did her fit and healthy look.

Melissa McCarthy had one of the most beautiful looks on the red carpet, but we’d still like to see one of the funniest and most talented women in the business make changes to improve her health. (more…)

Giuliana Rancic Reveals She Has Breast Cancer

Giuliana Rancic recently announced that she has breast cancer and will be undergoing surgery this week. Giuliana works for E! Entertainment and revealed that she discovered a tumor in her breast while she was undergoing in-vitro fertilization. Giuliana, 37, stated, “It’s been a shock. I wasn’t prepared to get a mammogram until I was 40-years old like I’d been told. I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong.”

Thankfully, Giuliana’s cancer was caught in the early stages, which can allow treatment to be more effective. Giuliana has no family history of breast cancer and has a healthy body weight. She still wants to have the baby that she and her husband Bill were trying for when the cancer was detected. Giuliana views the attempt to have a baby as saving her life. “I still want this baby, because this baby has saved my life. I truly feel God was looking out after me. If I had gotten pregnant later down the line, I could have been a lot sicker,” she said.


The Most Popular Celebrity Detox Diets

One of the hottest new trends in weight loss are detox diets. These cleanses are typically liquid-based and can help people shed unwanted pounds quickly. This is really just water weight and unless you stick to a healthy diet and exercise regimen after, you’ll likely see the weight return.

Hollywood stars have been using these detox cleanses to prepare themselves for red carpet events, and thanks to People Magazine, we’ve got an inside-look at how the likes of Beyonce and Gwyneth cleanse to lose weight.

Beyonce’s Cleanse

Beyonce made the Master Cleanse diet a household name. She prepares this recipe with hot water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper and drinks only this for 10-14 days. After using the Master Cleanse (also known as the lemonade diet or the maple syrup diet) to lose 20 pounds for her Dreamgirls role, she told Ellen Degeneres “I was very hungry, therefore I was evil.” (more…)
