Giuliana and Bill Rancic ended their show last night with a cliff-hanger: Will they or won’t they get grueling IVF treatment to try for a much-longed-for baby?
After Giuliana failed to get pregnant after an IUI procedure, the E! News host and her husband faced the decision about undergoing in vitro fertilization.
“We have been trying for a while… it’s just not working. I can’t believe that we aren’t pregnant,” Giuliana says.
She outlined her concerns about the treatment: “They take the guy’s sperm and the women’s eggs and put them together in a dish and after five days they implant them back in you. With IVF I hear that the chance to get pregnant is much higher. We will look into IVF.”
Meanwhile, Giuliana’s assistant Matthew Jacobi blows up, venting to a co-worker, “I want to throw my BlackBerry out the window. I think it may be time for me to move on.”
Sending Bill in to speak to Matthew, a nervous Giuliana says, “I don’t know what I can even say to him at this point. I don’t know if I can even face him. I am still hurt.”
However, she gets answers from Matthew who admits he was worried about the workload once she became pregnant. “I’m going to be in my thirties and be a damn nanny!” Matthew vents to his ex-boss.
Giuliana replies that his decision to walk out was so sudden it felt “like you quit our friendship,” but the two made up and parted ways peacefully.
The show ended with Giuliana still torn on trying IVF treatment. Bill handed the decision over to her, saying, “The ultimate decision rests with you because it’s your body.”
