'Giuliana & Bill' Renewed: Season 5 Will Feature Breast Cancer Battle
Style's reality series, "Giuliana and Bill," starring "E! News" host Giuliana Rancic and her husband, Bill, has been renewed for a fifth season. The new season of the reality show will follow the couple as they deal with Giuliana's breast cancer battle.
"Since day one of our marriage, Bill and I have welcomed Style into our lives, from traveling with us to Italy for our wedding, to following our struggles to conceive," said Giuliana Rancic said in a press release. "In 2011, we faced our scariest obstacle yet when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, but as we start 2012, I am focused on living in the present. Bill and I look forward to this new year of opportunity and good health and can't wait to once again share our journey with the Style viewers."
Giuliana announced her breast cancer diagnosis on NBC's "Today" in October 2011. Since the announcement, Giuliana has undergone a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. She returned to E! two weeks later in early December, but was candid about her progress.
"I feel great considering it's been two and a half weeks, but I still have a ways to go as far as recovery," Giluiana said on "Today."
"It was definitely hard. Up until about a week and a half ago, it was hell."
In addition to Rancic's breast cancer, Season 5 of "Giuliana and Bill" feature Bill attempting to cope with the couple's new house guests, this in-laws parents Anna and Eduardo, and the couple's restaurant opening in Chicago.
The new season premieres Mon., April 2 at 8 p.m. EST on Style.
