Giuliana Rancic: Rivers likes strong characters

Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana Rancic says TV star Joan Rivers likes "strong characters".

The American presenter is part of the iconic comedienne's Fashion Police team, a humorous programme that dissects celebrity red carpet style.

As the host, Joan is known for her frank sense of humour and sharp comments on the A-List's style and personal life.

But Giuliana would never fake a laugh if she didn't find Joan's jokes funny because the star doesn't like sycophants.

"We're taping it at six in the morning, so it's pretty early every week. But as soon as Joan Rivers starts and those jokes start going we laugh so hard you wake up just like that. She wants us to be honest. She doesn't like people who just bow down to her and do whatever she wants, she likes strong characters. But 99 per cent of the time we are laughing," she told UK TV show Lorraine.

Giuliana also spoke about helping others by sharing her personal troubles so publicly.

The 36-year-old decided to show not only her struggles to conceive, but also her battle with breast cancer on her reality TV show Giuliana & Bill.

The presenter shared a positive message for women going through similar experiences.

"I didn't realise that I was going to have trouble having a baby and get breast cancer I didn't realise I was going to have to face these things. And so when I did, I thought 'Why don't we share these stories because they can help people?' In the end, even though it has been so public and I had to be so open, it has helped so many women it's made it all worth it," she said. "[I would like to tell other women that] just when you think it's never going to happen, it happens. I was at the lowest - I'd just been diagnosed with breast cancer, I'd been trying to have a baby for four years and I think sometimes you have to get to your darkest point in life and then the brightest light just appears and that's when the good news come."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's time to take charge of your finances. You can't relax unless you have some money in the bank. Therefore, you should land a good job that brings a steady income. Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
