TV personality Giuliana Rancic is everywhere these days, but it took a lot of major work to get there. Besides her primary work as a TV host on the E! network, Giuliana has a reality show, a fashion line, and has written two books. She never stops! See how all that effort is paying off.
Giuliana always dreamed of being a broadcast journalist, and holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s in journalism. Before she landed at E!, she covered entertainment at a magazine website and as an online anchor. She joined E! as a correspondent way back in 2002. She was made an anchor at E! News in 2005, and viewership has risen 50% since then! Yay, Giuls!
She is now the managing editor of E! News, but her role at E! hardly ends there. She is also a host on Fashion Police, and mans the red carpets at all award shows for the network. Giuliana signed a new contract with E! that guarantees she’ll be sticking with the network through 2015. Her salary is rumored to be in the $1 million range.
Giuliana and her husband Bill star on a reality show, Giuliana and Bill, about their marriage and life together which now airs on E!. Each could be receiving in the tens of thousands of dollars per episode, though the show is owned by E!’s parent company of NBCUniversal, and could potentially be a part of her contract with the network.
Bill Rancic had some reality fame of his own before meeting Giuliana. They met after he won the first season of The Apprentice back in 2004, which got him a plum gig working for Donald Trump. He is said to have a net worth in the $5 million range. He and Giuliana also have a television production company together. The couple flipped a home in Chicago in 2011 and sold it for $4.6 million, making nearly $3 million in the process. Good real estate sense, guys!
Giuliana has just a few more other sources of income. She wrote a dating handbook in 2006, Think Like a Guy, when she was still a single lady, and she and Bill have since written a self-help book about marriage together, I Do, Now What? Secrets, Stories, and Advice From a Madly-in-love Couple. Celeb book deals typically net at least six figures, so that’s yet more $$ for Giuliana. She also has a fashion line, G by Giuliana Rancic, on HSN.
Overall, Giuliana Rancic has worked her butt off and made some really smart business ventures. With that $1 million a year salary, real estate ownership, and the fashion line in the works, her net worth is between $7 and 9 million. Along with Bill’s, that’s a pretty decent nest egg for baby Duke!
